  • *OBAMA CALLS FOR MINIMUM WAGE TO INCREASE TO $9/HOUR

Last year's 6,977 word homage to jobs provided just over an hour's worth of applause-impacted rhetoric create much ado - more with what was not said than what was said. This year's 9pmET speech will likely be dotted with hope, and change, and jobs, and congress, and of course our union is strong... because the S&P is up 16% since last year's SOTU. But, by our measurement from Bloomberg's data from December 2011 (the last NFP before 2012's SOTU) to January 2013 (this year's last NFP) - Non-Farm Payrolls (NSA) dropped from 133.292 million to 132.705 million (or a 587,000 job loss).

Forget all this baloney and check out the situation with Energy  Future Holdings.  This could be a big story in junk-bond land. Bloomberg is reporting a single day loss of half a billion on the debt.

... no longer do people need to wear tin-foil-hat to think the government is a tool of bankers and the middle-class is just a grid of battery pack to power the top 0.001%. The matrix lives.

Topics Obama will not being discussing during the : Prosecutorial overreach, attacks against whistleblowers and warrantless wiretaps.

Everytime he says "middle class" 10,000 new angels (former middle class) get their EBT wings. Its a wonderful life!

The state of the Union is that the "several states" do not comprise a "union" anymore since the presiddent, who is the executor of the  law, is not an eligible natural born Citizen-- since he was born British, of a British subject father.

 

US Law:

 

"The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners". 88 US 162, 167 (1874)

 

There is no law because you allow there to be no law. When there is no legal president then there is no law. Oust Obama and restore the Republic. Physically.

Proposals will not increase deficit by a single dime - true - more like 10 trillion dimes.

EscapingProgress's picture

Obama knows that sheep don't know the difference between debt and deficit.

Obama just said, "...a really bad idea."

Congrats. Way to appeal to the lowest common denominator. This is probably the most dumbed down SOTU speech in American history.

Sometimes I think I'm stupid because I'm only average, but then I think about the 50% of Americans who are less intelligent than me. Needless to say, we're fucked.

*OBAMA CALLS FOR MINIMUM WAGE TO INCREASE TO $9/HOUR

Is that before or after HYPERINFLATION???

goldenbuddha454's picture

At $9.00 an hour that just means I get to fire 2 more employees and work the remaining 2 another 6 hours a week.  Sweet!
