Why did Hillary lose the 2016 election

Rate This Article

Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas.

We are tired of free trade.

We want our jobs back from China.

We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family.

We are tired of banks getting bailed out.

We are tired of wall street getting a free ride.

We are tired of obama being more interested in bathrooms than veterans.

Fear mongering

We are tired of democrats fear mongering to divide us. Without fear democrats have no political platform. That is the way they have been in the past and that is the way they will always be. Democrats thrive on turning one demographic against another. Hillarys whole platform was built on how one group, conservative white men, are keeping everyone else down.

The State Of Social Security Disability

Rate This Article

Do you want to know how bad things are? Do you “really” want to know? Chances are, if you pass your time watching sports rather then watching the news, or reading gossip websites rather then reading news websites, you probably do not want to read this article.

Since 2009, an average of 150,000 jobs are created every month inside the United States.

During that same time, an average of 250,000 people apply for Social Security Disability every month.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

In other words, 100,000 more people apply for social security disability every month over those that find a job.

Around 14 million people currently draw Social Security disability.

Source14 Million Americans Don’t Work Due To Disability, And The Number Is Growing

The system is broken. 100,000 more people file for SS disability rather then find a job every month. It is just a matter of time before the financial system collapses.

It is impossible for 150,000 workers to support 250,000 people on disability, and that is the direction we are headed.

As long as the Federal Reserve can print money out of thin air, everything will be ok.

Post Office Saturday Delivery A Sign Things To Come

Rate This Article

The reason why the post office is having problems, they are not allowed to have a cash surplus. Any profit the post office makes has to be turned over to the federal government.

Like all other federal programs, the post office has been raided to fund other projects – military, welfare, food stamps, foreign aid,,,.

It’s not that the post office is broke, its federal governments out of control spending that is the problem.

The United States is bankrupt, and its just a matter of time before the bill is due.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Instead of making companies like google and exxon pay their fair share in taxes, the government gives tax breaks to corporations, taxes the middle class, then bankrupts programs like the post office.

Our roads are falling apart, the US is lagging behind on internet access, our standard of living is declining, social security and social security disability are going broke, and now the government is cutting out saturday delivery of the mail.

Should the rich subsidize the poor

Rate This Article

With free trade, and so many companies sending jobs overseas, should the rich subsidize the poor?

If a company can afford to pay its employees well, why shouldn’t said company be required to?  Should companies like walmart be required to pay a higher minimum wage then a mom and pop corner store?

Or roads are falling apart, but foxconn in china is hiring tens of thousands of employees.

Then there is the issue with companies like google setting up offices overseas to lower their tax burden.

If companies are going to exploit free trade and tax loopholes, shouldn’t they be required to give something back?

Apple makes a cool billion in profit, but yet a record number of people are on welfare.

Nobody sees an issue with that?

Is it better to provide welfare to a family where the parents have no life skills, or do we provide a path out of poverty through education?

Even if a path is provided, there is no guarantee the parents will go to school or get take the training.

My wife and I know a certain family, they have 3 young children, oldest is around 7 years old, the dad works, the mom sits at home. There is nothing wrong with staying home with small children. My wife stayed at home with our children.

When the youngest child starts school, the mom has no plans to get to college. Even though her schooling would be paid for by the government, I doubt she has the drive to further her education.

Who benefits the most from welfare

Who are the ones that benefit the most from welfare? The working poor who have 3, 4, 5,,, or more kids.

I have posted this before in various threads, my wife and I know a family that has received some kind of welfare for around 22 – 25 years, and has spanned 3 generations. The kids range in age from mid-20s to around 3 years old.

The grandmother received welfare when she was pregnant, the kids were on welfare their entire lives, and now the newborn grandchild is on welfare.

One of the kids got on social security disability as soon as she tuned 18 years old. And that is after being on welfare since she was born. For her entire life, the lady has received some kind of benefits from the state.

Shouldn’t the state require people who have been on welfare for over 10 years to get some kind of education or job skills?

But where is the money for job training going to come from?  The middle class?  We are already taxed to the limit – income tax, property tax, sales tax, taxes on cell phone bills, taxes on just about everything.

Not able to prepare for a disaster

Rate This Article

Over the past couple of decades there has been a disturbing trend that is becoming more and more visible. And that is families that are not able to prepare for a disaster. Its not because they do not want to, its because most people can not afford to purchase the basic essentials.

In the 1970s, 1980s and even into the 1990s most families could scrap by on one income. Starting in the 1990s – and the introduction of massive free trade – million of US jobs have been shipped overseas in favor of cheap labor. Unemployment has gone up, cost of housing, fuel and everything else has gone up. despite promises that free trade would drive prices down (that was a lie). So what can a family do?
