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?

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.

– 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?

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.

GET A FUCKING JOB YOU LAZY PIECES OF SHIT.

This is fucking 2012 and just about every fucking person in America has access to the internet. There is no reason why a person cannot go on and learn a skill. It doesn't matter how old you are or what color your skin is. There are literally millions and millions of youtube videos that teach you millions of fucking useful skills. The only cost is a few hours a day of your free time. Which you probably have a fucking ton of, because you are mooching deadweight pieces of shit.

You know how people become "rich" and earn more than $250K? Because they get up every day and go to fucking work and try to educate themselves by learning more about what they do or learning new skills. When they can't find a job, they create one themselves. The government hasn't totally revoked that right away from you yet, you lazy assholes realize this right?

The melting pot is now a melting pit. If the first two main immigration waves came from where the immigrants are coming from these days, do you really think they could have and would have built the same America built by Whitey?

"Since mid-2011, he’s had a private Bronx apartment that is paid for out of his Social Security and Veterans Administration disability benefits, along with other federal assistance, according to city officials."

Remember that homeless dude who got the shoes from the cop? Milking it.

a lot of online applications have surveys at the end, vet, gender, race. I wonder why. Not too fond of the practice.

Minimum wage.. Who does it help?

 

I have a friend. He is not that bright, and he isn't strong either. As the situation is, he has no skills. He would probably produce around 2$ net income per hour for a hypethetical employer. But, because of minimun wages, the job is never created, as minimum wages makes it a loose-loose situation for the employer. Because of this, my friend never gets hired, and never gets the chance to build up skills that perhaps could see him rise thou ranks over the years..

Now, he is just a government dependant zombie...

 

Fuck socialism!

Oh.. And fuck you Bernanke!

And taxing the so called rich will make those numbers worse.  I'm NOT rich, however I have started business's and 4 years ago I had 30 full and part-time employees.  Today I have 1 full time and 1 part-time.  I will not invest in a business to hire anyone as long as Obama is President.  We will need to elect a true conservative and change the business destroying policies created by the DemoRats before I expand or invest more money into my current or any other business.

I used my own investments as collateral to start my business 12 years ago.  However, according to Obama's policies I fit into the tax categories.  So with higher taxes....... it means less to invest or re-invest.

That would be the idea. Can't control a proud people until they are broken and fearful.
