The folks who voted for the people in DC are the ones and the same who have so amazingly "benefited" and "will benefit in the future the most" by the sober, intellectual policies brought forth upon our nation.

Same fact of life as the Blue States gonna get hit much harder by any Blue Gubamint tax increases.

Same as the charade of taxing millionaires being defined as folks who make as little as $200K when the mega bazillionaires will not even feel the pinch.

What the fuck are people thinking?

Go cut your nuts off and blame somebody else
Pure alcohiolic/addictive behavior.......

Speaking of BLS fairy tales, they aired a segment on National Propaganda Radio tonight focusing on the whys/hows as to how there is a movement to revise the CPI again, because....and I swear on all that is holy that this is accurate and there's a serious proposal on the table....


....the current methodology OVERSTATES INFLATION. I repeat, there are very serious people within the BLS, the Fed and other prestigious (implied /sarc) institutions, that are actively pushing to have the BLS move to a "chain inflation" methodology of tabulating inflation.

Oh look, there's the link to the story. Do not read if you are subject to rage in the face of unimaginable lies, distortions & con games.


New Inflation Gauge Would Cut Benefits, Hike Taxes : NPR

The inflation measure under consideration is called the Chained Consumer Price Index. On average, the measure shows a lower level of inflation than the more widely used Consumer Price Index.


The chained CPI assumes that as prices rise, consumers turn to lower-cost alternatives, reducing the amount of inflation they experience. For example, if the price of beef increases while the price of pork does not, people will buy more pork.


I have a better idea: If you're cold, just sleep outside in the snow, and you'll fall into a warm lull harkening death. That'll cut expenses. Substitute that. If you're hungry, instead of buying and eating food, don't. You'll really save some money that way. Screw medical coverage/treatment and driving. You don't really need to see the doctor & you can walk to wherever your going - cha-ching, money in the bank.

The shit is beyond surreal at this point. It's like nothing I've ever witnessed, experienced or lived through before.

This tells me (this being this noisy announcement via National Propaganda Radio) that they are floating this to see how much backlash there will be and to prepare the sheeples' minds, B.F. Skinner style, for more, bigger lies and bullshit.

Yes! We also need a comparison along the same lines of disposable income to see who is better off.

And now you know why this president wanted a divided country. A divided country obviously has no cohesion and thus cannot rise in unison. Well played.

abolish minimum wage...let some of these kids work for $2.00 per/hour to at least learn how to get up and show up to a job before moving on.   For many of these kids, just getting them to put down their game controllers and move more than 20 feet from their playstation is success.

You're a racist for even suggesting that

You're a racist for even using the word "racist" (unless you are negro, oops, I mean Afro-American, oops, I mean black, oops, I mean African-American, oops, I mean differently pigmented --- then it's OK).

Sure, $2.00/hour, once you kick the illegals out, put CONgress on Obamacare, hold gas at $2/gallon, make all college tuition a flat $5,000 per year, offer needs (income) based auto insurance premiums, provide affordable housing, and catch a Leprechaun with his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and a Unicorn.

at least learn how to get up and show up to a job 

Fucking Racist, Ken Burns sez so!

Why bother working when welfare benefits can provide a perfectly acceptable quality of life with lots of free time?

tango's picture

Are you trying to tell me that I have to get by on food stamps and/or my own EBT card, disability benefits, my Obamaphone, education, child care job training "help", earned income tax credit, free healthcare and no taxes?  What do you expect me to do - work?

– Half of all Hispanic households with children are headed by an unmarried woman, and 55 percent depend on welfare programs.

These numbers do not improve with time, as they did with the Irish, Italian, Polish, Jewish and German immigrants who poured into the United States between 1890 and 1920. Third-generation Hispanics do worse than second-generation Hispanics in all the above categories.

This is a huge community being sucked into the morass of a mammoth welfare state. Consider a typical Hispanic household with children.

It is headed by an unmarried women who receives food stamps and public housing or rent supplements to feed and house her children.

Her kids are educated free from Head Start to K-12 and fed by school breakfast and lunch programs. Should they graduate high school, Pell Grants and student loans are there for college.

For cash, mom gets welfare checks. If she takes a job, she will receive an earned income tax credit to supplement her income. If she loses her job, she can get 99 weeks of unemployment checks.

For health care, there is Medicaid and Obamacare. And like 45 percent of all Hispanic households, she has no federal income tax liability.

Why should this woman vote for a party that will cut taxes she does not pay, but reduce benefits she does receive?

Now we know why "leading from behind" is such a favored term.

You (we) go FORWARD!!!

They just stand back and laugh at what complete morons we have become.

Puts collectivism into an appropriate light.

Oh I see. These people all birthed companies which explains the BLS stats. Now I get it.

I think everyone knows what the Bush crash did to jobs in this country.  Everyone also knows how Republican obstructionism and filibusters have held back most efforts to clean up that economic disaster.

But thanks for the cool chart that quantifies the jobs part of that long national nightmare.

Dude, get with the program.
It's been 4 full years of the Messiah and for 2 of 'em he and his Dims had a super majority.
It's no longer "Bush's Fault."
It's now "Obama's fault"

Bein's he's the anointed head of the One Big Party in America.

Put the pipe down.

Doesn't matter who you vote for, both sides want to screw you.

Just wait; Demicans and Republicrats will "meet in the middle" to reduce our already taxed benefits, steal two to five years of our lives by raising retirement age, and throw us to the corporate dogs if we want to eat or see a doctor.

Alpha Monkey's picture

Never really understood the harm in raising the retirement age... I won't be waiting around for the government to tell me when I have saved enough money so that I can stop working for the rest of my life.  I see problems for those in the society that do not save, and are simply awaiting their government check, maybe a valuable learning tool, reinforcing the importance of saving in hard money and making wise investments.

I can only assume that you are being sarcastic?

I simply can't conceive of a human being apparently intelligent enough to not only navigate a web browser, but to use spell check successfully....And still not recognize the clear and blatant (intentionally so) progression from pappy bush to obama?

So I'm stuck with assuming that you are either a firedog pup that got lost/ an unemployed SEIU thug trying for a role in the regime/ or just trying to be funny.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and go with funny.
