More Obamanomics “UNEXECTEDLY!” news

Obama must be going for a perfect score. Not only has his signature achievement put this country on a path where most employment will be part-time, if you can find jobs that is, straddled us all with more debt obligations, and in general grown the welfare state obligations those of us that produce have to pay for, but his tenure has also brought us a 3.2% decline in wages. Considering that the really well connected and well off rich have made a killing under Obama’s tenure, I bet that number skews real bad for those of us not part of the gravy train.

I could say “I told you so” to the dumb fucks that despite my arguments, based on the evidence the past performance of democrats when they held the reins of power completely, refused to see what was coming and assured us all that a democrat would do better than that democrat-light Boosh, but it would be pointless. Stupid idiots that believe they cannot just ignore economic laws, human nature, and the real world, but change it to make things work to be the way they envision them in their torrid fantasies, are not going to admit they were wrong.

At least I am looking at a big raise and a sweet bonus again this year because despite my warnings that I am the only one with the skills to do my job, my company chose to not get me a backup because it cost too much. It’s good to be indeispensable. Most people, many of them real good and hard workers, however are getting fucked by the left leaning policies & politics of the last 5 years. Those of you that voted for these idiots and are getting screwed though, can kiss my ass.

    You need to go a lot further back to see the trend. Even when the economy was booming, real wages for the majority stayed stagnant over an entire decade. And we can see now that even though the ‘job creaters’ are doing very very well and taking almost all the gains, they haven’t been creating jobs, or paying people more.
    We actually don’t disagree on some of this. Our main disagreement is cause – you see specific causes, whereas I can’t see how it’s not inherently part of a failing system.

    Why Income Inequality Is A Myth — And Occupy Wall Street Is Wrong

    Income Inequality Myths Of Left Exposed Once Again

    The Income-Inequality Myth

    This doesn’t “prove” you’re wrong, but it does strongly suggest that you are not absolutely correct, and that the issue isn’t as simple as you seem to be claiming.

    Which “failing system” would that be, exactly?

    Which “failing system” would that be, exactly?

    Ironically I assumed that in a rare moment of lucidity or simple coincidence, he admitted that the system where government set itself up to pick the winners and losers and created a system that required everyone to buy favors from them, the one that the left put together in the last 60 years and is now on steroids, was what he was referring to. A system where people are allowed to create wealth and keep it will reward people far better than one where wealth creators are punished for doing that.

    Frankly I am less pissed at an overcompensated CEO or board member of a private company than I am at the politicians that have been buying votes so they could keep doing more economic damage with their stupid class warfare system, and doing so with trillions of our tax payer money. The problem isn’t income inequality as much as it is the fact that the wealth redistributionists have straddled us with a system that punishes wealth creation and thus make it a lot harder for those that make wealth to share it.

    And I did mention that nobody has helped create more of a disparity between the haves and the have nots than Obama right? Under him the rich have gotten richer, getting more wealth and in a record time, mostly through wealth transfers from tax payers to them through our government, while the middle class is being gutted and the ranks of those lining up for scraps from the government table have swelled. Methinks we can, based on the facts of what really happens when progressives do their shit, say they are full of shit.

    Well you know what assuming does, because that’s not what he meant IMHO.

    It seems to me that the way they tend to arrive at the “the middle class has stagnated” is done in much the way the “women get paid less for the same thing,” result is found. In the stagnated bit, they’re not factoring in things like the rise (again) of a stay at home parent, as people realize it’s not worth both working when a huge chunk of money goes to day care and other things. Or things like people wasting huge amounts of money on useless degrees and having that debt over their head. Or people who lived well outside of their means and had reality catch up to them in 2008.

    Everyone that I know, who has a marketable skill and who works hard has been doing well and often quite well. Ironically, we just got our 2nd of our bi-annual merit this week. I know I still got myself a nice little bump and a good bonus… because I’m pretty damn good at what I do.

    I know that pretty much everyone who hangs out here is likely middle class. I wonder how we’re all doing over the last decade? I looked at my diff from 2003 to now and I’ve gone up nearly 47% in base salary because I’ve gotten several promotions due to my increased knowledge and skill, coupled with my performance (also from age 30 to 40 so pretty low level to start). I’m a unix sysadmin which isn’t something everyone can do, or learn. I’ve known a few that took classes and had even worked as one but really didn’t have the ability. When I started college I figured I’d be a programmer, but learned pretty quickly I wasn’t really good at doing nothing but code, found out where my skill was (sysadmin), looked at the market, and changed accordingly. Far too many people don’t look at the world around them and adjust as needed. Then they blame everyone else. To say nothing of the talk of many that every job, even simple labor that anyone can do, should be able to support a whole family.

    From 2003 to 2013, I’ve more than tripled my income – just got a promotion last week. Why? Because I work hard, and I work smart.

    Funny you should mention those things Xetov, because I have done good whether times were good or bad, and it is because I work hard & smart too. Maybe there is message there… One I bet the people that feel success is a bad thing because it leaves others behind won’t like. Especially since they are coming clean about what they really think of most people….

    The single biggest deceptive statistic is using household income as the measure. Wage earners per household has declined significantly in the last few decades (as has number of people per household).
