This article should either scare the **** out of you or piss you off.  Maybe a little bit of both.  Either way, its appalling that we've gone so far Backwards in such a short amount of time.

 

Please stop being bi-partisan and realize that no single party was responsible for our demise.  It was a combination of both.  Both dems and repubs are bought and paid for by the Koch brothers and our real leaders on 5th Avenue...

 

We've been sold and instead of doing anything productive about it, we point fingers at 'demorats' and 'republitards', or better yet, kick some poor bastard making 7 bucks an hour when he's down.  Too much infighting.  Too much division.  We're never going to get any of these things back unless we stop and look at the real evil.

Small to medium farms. Now days I don't see cattle at every farm. Abandon homesteads, run down buildings, and big corporate farms. Turning every piece of land into crops. Just like the big cities having everything run by corporate enterprises. Leaving the small and medium farmers out.

So let's see:  Wages are super low---Check!    Vacation pay and PTO taken away---Check!   No pensions or retirement plans other then the untrusty 401k that can collapse or be frozen on you---Check!    The Top wealthiest in the country getting MUCH wealthier---CHECK!      And all you 'conservative" fan boys think that we need MORE OF THIS TYPE OF THING!?!?!!?  you realize that they are talking about YOUR wages and benefits right????  This is not just people working at McDonalds but across the board in EVERY employment category....Even you shlubs who think you are "educated" enough to tell people "then get a better job"  it's happening to YOU and your kid's when they get out of college.....Capitalism this is not, slavery is what it amounts to be.

 None of the aforementioned things have disappeared as fast as hard working, responsible, men and women that realize their duty to do or sacrifice whatever it takes to preserve this nation by holding to the foundations that made it what it was..

Capitalism, self responsibility, charity, individual freedom, ... and replaced with ever growing socialism since the establishment of the progressive income tax system in 1913 and the loss of individual liberty ever since.

It's all just a push and another step toward the one world government.

The Founding Documents are written is cursive... So Common Core is wanting our kids to be ignorant of their rights and how the government is supposed to work.
 
Good thing my kids are home schooled! They won't be like the ignorant masses of sheeple.
 
Another bad thing to lose is the last lead smelter will be shutting down at the end of the year... So we're going to have to rely on China for this as well?!?!
 
Not smart, people. Not too phucking smart.

If this trend continues then no one will be able to read the Nation's Founding Documents. They will just be like works of art that are interesting and no one will understand the principles in them. The current administration of President Obama already has stated that the US Constitution is no longer relavant to today and we need a new way to govern. Since when does a US president want to get rid of the very laws he is sworn to enforce and uphold? And why is that not a warning sign to the US population who re-elected this man. They must not have believed what he meant or don't really care about the Constitution we live under.. Even Obama  has passed and signed more executive orders that defy the current law and set himself up as a dictator who bypasses Congress with his executive orders. The day is fast approaching when America will collapse under the weight of it's own debt and fall into anarchy. The President, maybe Obama, will declare martial law, use the military to back up his version of America, cancel and postpone elections, and set up his socialist government to rule with many of his Marxist cabinet members and Czars. Many of his Czars have publically proclaimed their love for America to become a Socialist/Marxist nation. America will never go back to it's Christian roots if that happens, but many will come to know Jesus Christ through the anger and hatred this President will pour out against those who oppose him. Even now he had the Mayor of Washington DC fire the head the Obama Care Commission for stating that Obama's push to not have insurance policies cancelled until next year, is wrong because it violates laws the States have now established with their health care exchanges. California has told the President to take a Hike. They won't do it. And a Government employee was fired by the DC Mayor because he said Obama told him to. Amazing isn't it. Will you be next for criticizing the president?

The entire EPA mandate for biofuels should be scrapped. There more than enough petroleum to go around especially in these times where people are finally conserving fuel. Leave the American praireland untouched.  We will regret it later if those lands are turned into cornfields.

Things disappearing from America?

 

Prosperity.

 

Comfortable retirement.

 

Affordable fuel oil.

 

Hope that things will get better.

 

Believing in our Congress.

 

The middle-class.

 

One paycheck families.

 

And here is one of my all time favorites which upsets me the most, our pre-9/11 freedoms that so many of us took for granted.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market maintained a narrow trading range on Thursday before ending the session essentially where it began. The S&P 500 added less than a point, while the small-cap Russell 2000 (-0.2%) underperformed.

Equity indices displayed early strength thanks in part to an overnight boost from better than expected economic data in China and Europe. Specifically, China's HSBC Manufacturing PMI surged to an 18-month high (52.0 from 50.7), while Eurozone Manufacturing PMI ... More
