Tag: Class warfare leads to rampant unemployment

There must be an election soon

And it looks like, just as we saw in 2012, the crooks in government beholden to the crime syndicate in DC, are cooking the books again. The unemployment numbers, especially the decline we are being told has happened recently, are bullshit. Things are just as bad, if not worse, than when the social engineering scheme the collectivists straddled us with – the one that encouraged the lending industry to give money to unqualified people, and then through government agencies bundled the worthless loans and sold them at a premium to investors – collapsed our economy and housing market, and led to the election of the Chicago crime boss now running the country.

There are countless people that have been unemployed for more than 2 years, and those with 4 years or more, are at a record high. Lucky for the crooks in DC the unemployment numbers are unaffected by these people no longer on the dole. There is a reason the number of people on assistance of one kind or another is so high. We have a record number of people on Social Security disability pay, with a record number of applicants in the pipe. I have heard it said that the bulk of these people are those that have been unemployed for 2 or more years. Of course our media has no interest in investigating stories like this, because they are too busy feeding the sheep the bullshit lies the democratic party needs to sell so they can retain their hold on power and keep robbing tax payers blind while destroying the country’s future.

The fact of the matter is that our economy remains in turmoil, and that the left’s agenda is only doing more damage, but they desperately need to confuse the low information voter about this reality to keep their hold on power. The policies of the democratic party but especially those championed by president “I am going golfing or on vacation and the tax payer will pick up the tab” have been abysmal. Obamacare, all by itself, will wreak havoc on the country’s employment and employment opportunities, the ability to start and sustain economic growth, and will annihilate the healthcare system, and anyone pretending otherwise is just propagating the same lies the democrats used to get this horrible thing passed. Good things like this are happening despite the efforts of this administration and the leftards to prevent them. Can you imagine the economic boom if we had people that actually valued economic growth and individuality over vote buying collectivist schemes and scams?

Things are bad, and what the crooks trying desperately to keep their hold on power so the fleecing of the productive can continue, are doing nothing but causing damage and lying about the damage they are causing. Remember that when you vote next month.

The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, someone else still pays for it? Next time some propagandist for the left tells you unemployment is heading in the right direction kick them in the proverbial balls (in my experience proggy women feel they have bigger balls than the proggy dudes anyway) and tell them that’s the direction we are heading in.

Progressives and their money…

I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, basically maintaining and growing its power and wealth, as was done on the olden days was not going to work. So instead of risking the mob turning on them, they shifted gears, pretending to help the less fortunate, while keeping business as usual. Don’t take my word for it.

Under Black Jesus, the super-rich have accumulated wealth at a pace that would have the progressives, both in politics and in the media (yeah, I know they are practically all progressive retards there), howling mad if the WH was occupied by a guy with an (R) next to their name. This has coincided with policy shifts that have drastically grown the handout class. More people than ever are now on some form of public assistance, primarily because the economy has been castrated and employment, especially full time high paying jobs in the private sector have all but dried up, and that number only looks to grow larger. Between the insane money borrowing & printing policies that are driving up our debt at an insane pace that makes anything that came before look tame, causing drastic inflation that we keep getting told is not happening by our political masters while the dollar’s power dwindles, and the anti-business vote buying schemes and scams like Obamacare, I remain surprised at the strength of our private sector’s ability to weather this storm.

But while these progressive policies are helping the ultra-rich get richer and keep power, by expanding the “Vote for a living” class membership, the real power behind America’s exceptionalism and economic success, the middle class, is getting destroyed. Of course, the truth is that all leftists systems end like this. Look at communism for the proof. From the old USSR, Cuba, and North Korea, as examples of abject failures, to more successful entities like China, the fact is that these progressive systems are based on a 2 class system. The first is the obvious oligarchy that runs the place and has all the power and wealth. They don’t have to won it directly, but people know better. Then you have the serfs: the rest of the schnooks that are fed a constant line of populist and anti-capitalism line bullshit, do all the work – when you can get them to work for the peanuts they get paid while struggling to get basic necessities – and reap none of the rewards, unless you think a reeducation camp, a gulag, or a bullet to the head is a reward.

Socialism is not much better. Look at Venezuela or any of those Arab oil states. Sure, our resident libs love to tell us about Israel, New Zealand, or Europe, but the truth is they are doing nothing more than the progressives in the 70s and 80s did in the US writ places like New York State, Michigan, Illinois, and California. Back then the progs told us all how their policies were directly responsible for the economic growth and success these places experienced, and even if there was a nugget of truth to it, today every one of these states or fiefdoms is facing hard times and bankruptcy. Most European socialist states are unraveling as well. That’s because this shit doesn’t work. You can’t keep borrowing and pushing the responsibility to pay the debt on others, all so you can prop up a system that pretends to do what it does to help people, but rarely does anything of the sort. Collectivism doesn’t work. And there is no room for a middle class in any of these progressive systems.

So why this long rant? Well, the whole thing is a setup for another obvious instance of the left’s double standards. What else do you call the revelation that people that advocate wealth redistribution policies but then work hard to avoid them for themselves ?

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long supported an estate tax to prevent the U.S. from being dominated by inherited wealth. That doesn’t mean they want to pay it.

To reduce the tax pinch, the Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now tops out at 40 percent of assets upon death.

The Clintons created residence trusts in 2010 and shifted ownership of their New York house into them in 2011, according to federal financial disclosures and local property records.

Among the tax advantages of such trusts is that any appreciation in the house’s value can happen outside their taxable estate. The move could save the Clintons hundreds of thousands of dollars in estate taxes, said David Scott Sloan, a partner at Holland & Knight LLP in Boston.

“The goal is really be thoughtful and try to build up the nontaxable estate, and that’s really what this is,” Sloan said. “You’re creating things that are going to be on the nontaxable side of the balance sheet when they die.”

The Clintons’ finances are receiving attention as Hillary Clinton tours the country promoting her book, “Hard Choices.” She said in an interview on ABC television that the couple was “dead broke” and in debt when they left the White House in early 2001. After being criticized for her comments, she told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that she understood the financial struggles of Americans

Look, I am not denying anyone the right to try and keep as much of their income as possible. But if you ever had perfect examples of the progressive movement’s bad guys, your stereotypical robber barons, it’s the Clintons. They have made a ton of money out of being politically powerful and connected, and have done so while decrying that very practice. It’s the same hypocritical shit that allows someone like Michael Moore to get stinking rich making idiotic and pedantic bullshit they pass off a serious documentary reporting, but amount to nothing more than ranting against the very system that allows him to rake in the cash. It’s despicable.

One set of rules for thee, and another for the progressive oligarchy. Now I can understand their motivations. What I don’t understand is how the people that lap up the class warfare cock these oligarchs use to maintain their grip on power and their exclusive clubs don’t see through it. At least the other such two tiered systems didn’t make any bones about the motivation of the people in power like any of the collectivist systems the progressive movement so love does.

Are we there yet?

While desperate democrats, worried about the well-deserved shellacking that should be coming their way in the election at the end of this year, are desperately pissing away tax payer dollars to ward off the disastrous consequences of their economic policies, the truth about how horrible the impact on said policies on the economy is can’t be hidden:

Despite adding more than 8 million people to the working-age population since 2007, total employment has declined by half a million, according to an analysis by the Senate Budget Committee.

Before President Barack Obama took office 259.7 million people were part of the working-age population, or between ages 16 and 65. Now, the number has risen to 267.7 million.

However, in the same time period, total employment declined from 146.3 million to 145.7 million. In other words, 531,000 fewer people have jobs.

“This statistic highlights an alarming trend that has embodied the president’s economic policies: more and more people are leaving the workforce entirely,” according to the analysis, which was released by Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.). “There are 58 million working-age people who are not working, and the labor force participation rate stands at 62.8 percent, the lowest level in 36 years.”

And while most leftards would point out s large chunk of those that have left the workforce are now on some form of government assistance, be it unemployment compensation, which usually means they are subsiding on a fraction of what they should be earning in a decent economy, disability – lots of people are scamming the system after their unemployment benefits end, and filing for SS disability to cover the income gap caused by class warfare economics – or the traditional welfare system that has bought democrats such power. Wait until the unconstitutional and soon to come “we get to pick who wins and who loses” regulations by the EPA (where they work real hard and are so righteous), or the fallout from the employer mandate (not to be confused as two employed guys going out on a date) of Obamacare pile on and double down on the economy wrecking. You would have thunk people would learn from the Carter years what happens when democrats do their thing.

At least there is some justice in the universe, as one of Obama’s main voting blocks also is the one feeling the most pain from his idiotic economic-illiterate class warfare policies. A large swat of these poor dolts could benefit from finding out that they have been sold a bunch of lies about college by the class warriors, and a whole lot of other marxist and green loving nonsense that passes for being educated these days. The left is beyond stupid, and they are not even bright enough to realize they are the ones suffering the most while their masters get rich.
