The Mystery Of The Shemitah

The Decline Of Breadwinner Jobs Has Resulted In The Longest Bread Lines In American History

The_Bread_Line_by_George_Benjamin_Luks,_Dayton_Art_InstituteAs the number of good jobs continues to decline, the number of Americans that cannot take care of themselves without government assistance continues to explode.  On Friday, we learned that the U.S. economy added "195,000 jobs" last month.  But when you look deeper at the numbers, another story emerges.  Last month, the U.S. economy actually lost 240,000 full-time jobs.  Overall, the U.S. economy has only added 130,000 full-time jobs in 2013, but it takes about 90,000 full-time jobs a month just to keep up with population growth.  So we are losing quite a bit of ground as far as full-time jobs are concerned.  Meanwhile, the U.S. economy has added more than 500,000 part-time jobs so far this year.  Unfortunately, there are very, very few part-time and temp jobs that can be considered "breadwinner jobs".  Part-time jobs are great for teenagers, university students and elderly people that only want to work a limited number of hours, but what most Americans need are good paying full-time jobs with benefits that will allow them to take care of their families.  Unfortunately, those jobs are continually becoming a smaller part of our economy.

As David Stockman has noted, the U.S. economy has only regained 200,000 of the 5.6 million breadwinner jobs that were lost during the last recession...

By September 2012, the S&P 500 was up by 115 percent from its recession lows and had recovered all of its losses from the peak of the second Greenspan bubble. By contrast, only 200,000 of the 5.6 million lost breadwinner jobs had been recovered by that same point in time. To be sure, the Fed’s Wall Street shills breathlessly reported the improved jobs “print” every month, picking and choosing starting and ending points and using continuously revised and seasonally maladjusted data to support that illusion. Yet the fundamentals with respect to breadwinner jobs could not be obfuscated.

This is a big problem.  As I wrote about the other day, the quality of jobs in America is falling very fast.  Only 47 percent of all adults in the United States have a full-time job at this point, and 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.

Meanwhile, the number of part-time jobs has hit an all-time record high, and the number of temp jobs is absolutely exploding.

Incredibly, the number of temp jobs has increased by more than 50 percent since the end of the recession.  Approximately 10 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were temp jobs, but close to 20 percent of the jobs gained since then have been temp jobs.

We are witnessing a fundamental shift in our economy.  Full-time jobs are on the decline.  Part-time and temp jobs are on the rise.

In fact, the second largest employer in the United States is now a temp agency.  Kelly Services has become the second largest employer in the country after Wal-Mart.

But it is really hard to pay the bills stocking shelves at Wal-Mart or working temp jobs for Kelly Services.

Unfortunately, these days millions of American workers find themselves having to take whatever they can find.  We live during a period of chronic unemployment.  In fact, according to John Williams of shadowstats.com, unemployment in the United States is now higher than it was at any point during the last recession after you factor in discouraged workers and workers that have taken part-time jobs for economic reasons.

So why don't more Americans go out and start businesses and create their own jobs?

Unfortunately, thanks to the federal government, state governments and local governments, the environment for small businesses in America today is incredibly toxic.  In fact, the percentage of self-employed workers in this country is at an all-time record low.

As a result of everything that I have discussed above, more Americans than ever find that they cannot take care of themselves without government assistance.

I have often written about the fact that the number of Americans on food stamps has skyrocketed in recent years.  In the year 2000, there were only 17 million Americans on food stamps.  Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

But the number of Americans that are dependent on our "modern day bread lines" is actually far higher than that.

According to a recent CNS News article, a total of 101 million Americans are enrolled in food assistance programs.  The following are some of the staggering numbers for some of these programs...

The National School Lunch program provides 32 million students with low-cost or no-cost meals daily; 10.6 million participate in the School Breakfast Program; and 8.9 million receive benefits from the Woman, Infants and Children (WIC) program each month, the latter designed for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, as well as children younger than 5 years old.

In addition, 3.3 million children at day care centers receive snacks through the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

There’s also a Special Milk Program for schools and a Summer Food Service Program, through which 2.3 million children received aid in July 2011 during summer vacation.

At farmer’s markets, 864,000 seniors receive benefits to purchase food and 1.9 million women and children use coupons from the program.

Yes, there is some overlap in some of these programs.  So the actual number of Americans receiving food assistance is going to be less than 101 million.

But clearly something has gone horribly wrong.  Our economy is not producing enough good jobs, and more Americans than ever cannot take care of themselves as a result.

This is not normal.  What we are witnessing is the slow-motion collapse of the middle class.  The number of Americans that are dependent on the government for their daily bread is so large that it is difficult to comprehend.  The following are a few statistics from my recent article entitled "21 Facts About Rising Government Dependence In America That Will Blow Your Mind"...

-Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps.  Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.

-Today, the number of Americans on food stamps exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.

-According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

You can read the rest of that article right here.

So what is the solution?

Well, we need a lot more full-time "breadwinner jobs" that will enable men and women to be able to take care of their families.

Unfortunately, we continue to ship millions of good jobs overseas, and our politicians continue to pursue policies which are making the business environment in this country very toxic.

There is not going to be any easy way to fix all of this.  We should have seen a nice bounce in the employment numbers during this so-called "recovery", but that did not happen.  And now the next wave of the economic collapse is rapidly approaching, and the employment crisis in this country is going to become a lot more painful.

    I was reading a jobs article in the Miami Herald today. Some are getting so creative they they are actually advertising themselves to “WORK FOR EXPERIENCE”.

    Yeah the US economy is doing just utterly fantastic. Let’s hope this recovery never stops. Now excuse me while I catchup on some more Aaron Hernandez news.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      I am amazed at the number of people that are willing to work for free these days.

      Michael

      • Krusty Krab

        Michael, that is because the professors, employment agencies and recruitment advisers tell people that “volunteer (in my words its called working for free because the person is only volunteering to get a job) experience” is “good for the resume”.

        And now we have an influx of thousands of graduates from abroad and locally trying to compete for the remaining jobs. And internships no paid jobs are getting competitive these days.

        I think you should look up on the internship theory and see whether people working for free in hopes of getting a job is effective.

        Volunteering because one has a passion for it and want to contribute to society is different from free labour internships where people are desperate to get a job.

        • Thomas Mrak

          Poor and many middle class families can’t afford to pay room and board so their kids can do an unpaid internship in order to pad out their resume.

          So, the internships, at least the ones that help people get high paying jobs down the road, are going to wealthy and upper middle class kids because they can afford to pay for room and board while their kids work for experience and networking.

      • Ralfine

        I volunteer, too. But only planting trees and cleaning nature from rubbish.

    • markthetruth

      And ” INTERNSHIPS ”

      the end…

      That’s OK, next time you get some food at the grocer congratulate them on their experience for feeding you.

  • Tim

    I don’t know what is going to happen when the next downturn in the economy begins. Will the federal government just keep increasing the number of Americans on the dole? We can’t afford the number of Americans that are receiving assistance now. Something has to give.

    • Rodster

      Yeah let’s just add millions of illegals errrr I mean undocumented workers who the govt wants to add to the govt assistance programs and Obamacare. Can you say C-O-L-L-A-P-S-E?

      Only low to no information voters could love this govt.

      • Tim

        Good point, Rodster!

      • Gene Baugh BBA

        The government just wants millions of new taxpayers.

        • Ralfine

          No.

          The banks want more people taking out credit cards so they can inflate their books with “Accounts Receivable”, and take out more bonus for themselves.

          And when those newcomers can’t pay their debts, the too big to fail banks get their money from the tax payer, with the help of corrupt politicians, or lobbyists, or whatever you call them; and continue to pay out bonus and severance pay to the fat cats.

          Banks are a huge money siphoning scheme.

          (According to what we were taught in Marxism/Leninism at university, eventually the financial institutions will control all aspects of society in capitalist countries – I am sure they were all wrong, and that’s why the Eastern bloc collapsed, or were they?)

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            What do you see as the appropriate role for a bank?
            Do we need them at all?

            Protect my money from theft.

    I believe it! It takes at least two low-wage incomes, usually 3 to 4, to pay all of the bills and rent these days.

    • Hambone

      On the other side of that, I am told that every full-time industry job creates ten others. So 300 manufacturing jobs added will actually create 3,000 local opportunities.

      So, each time a company moves its facilities from the US to outside the US, we lose not only those jobs but the associated support jobs — the opportunities themselves are dwindling, so it may even become harder to find part time jobs when people are working more than one.

      • Gay Veteran

    Greed has infected this Country at a level, never before seen. But remember, as with most things there is no single answer. Because as much as it is about greed, it is also about control. How much more control can any government have, than to be able to decide whether your family eats the next day? How much more control can the government’s masters have, then life or death? This is the road we are on, sad so few see it.

    • Ralfine

      Not the government shall control the people,
      the people shall control the government.

      Without people working and paying tax, the government would starve.

      But you could still create money by betting on the weather, and lending to the losers.
      And you don’t need gold and silver to pay, and not even paper money anymore.

      You can create your own money on plastics, either by hacking, or by getting more and more credit cards.

      What’s wrong with this picture?

    • Aeffesstoo

      Sloth, not greed.

      • K

        Sorry sloth is a factor,but not a major factor. If you are one of those who think everyone without a job is lazy, that is just sad. As long as there are many companies, where the guy at the top makes more in 3 weeks, than the guy at the bottom makes in 40 years. That is greed.

        • Aeffesstoo

          …and Envy

          • K

            No envy on my part. I would not change places with those soulless creatures, for any amount of money.

        • Thomas Mrak

          It depends on the company. Personally, I think the world would be better served if people who are disappointed with the way current companies do business went into business.

          If you want employees to make more, find a way to stay profitable and pay people more.

          Although, the government doesn’t seem to want profitable companies either, unless they’re working with government officials.

    The company I work for has been in business for 10 months, for the first 7 everyone was full time, starting in April, they cut everyone’s hours to part time and won’t allow us to go over 30 a week…

    The amount of work and little pay that most of these jobs offer could be considered criminal (Just like in 3rd world countries)

    I mean, what good does “minimum-wage” do if doesn’t provide a LIVING WAGE!

    • Ralfine

      How can a company that is not even one year in business employ several people? That is totally unsustainable.

      Probably just taking out a huge loan, blowing it all on salaries and bonuses and then going bankrupt before having established a sustainable customer base, leaving just another pile of rubble.

      • Thomas Mrak

        Yeah. Startups and many small businesses can’t afford to pay people huge salaries and give them tons of benefits.

        Of course, the sane people who work at small businesses and startups are aware of this.

        It won’t hurt Fortune 500 companies, but it will hurt their smaller competitors.

        • Ralfine

          No neeed to pay huge salaries, just employ less people and pay a living salary, health insurance, accident insurance and pension insurance.

          When you treat your people right and the company grows, the salary can grow.

          And when you treat your people right, they will stay and you save a lot of money recruiting replacements.

I fix a friends car he gives me $20 , or you have a garage sale , or other ODD JOBS as growth, there has always been bartering or working for cash forever ,now they come up with $trillion numbers, How who knows. Like i said before when a car is brought New the taxes are payed by the first owner, why should that car be taxed 3,4,5 times more.This is why they want to go to a ” CASHLESS SOCIETY ” to rip us off more. You see Corps are paying with cards

    A few days ago I read an article that talked about while Americans are up in arms over the debate as to whether to grant amnesty to the illegal aliens there is an increasing number of Americans that are leaving the the US for greener pasters elsewhere. While it may sound crazy that people are turning their backs on the once great US, it makes sense when you factor in that it is becoming a third world dung heap with an increasingly intrusive government and the prospects for better yourself through hard work is decreasing by the day.

    Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself to be a very patriotic American, but at the age of 23-years-old I have to wonder if I want to spend the next three of four decades of my life paying for other people’s retirement, healthcare, food, housing, day care, unemployment, incarceration, and many other things, when the well of wealth creation is slowly dying, and the prospects of becoming successful myself are dwindling.

    One thing that the article that Michael wrote failed to point out is the looming retirement crisis on top of the decline in middle class jobs. The only people who are truly able to retire in the US today are government employees, and they already make off like bandits when it comes to salaries and retirement benefits. I was discussing the prospects of austerity in the US with some of my friends and one advocated that we kick the can down the road even more and I told him that something has to give, or give out, at some point because we have built a financial house of straw and the flames of collapse are looming closer to the global economy.

    • Ayn Rand

      What was his response?

    • Ralfine

      If you do not want to pay for other people’s retirement, don’t come to Europe.

      Here you pay for other people’s retirement most of your life, and when you retire, other people finance your retirement.

      That’s the problem with population growth.

      If the growth is positive, more resources are needed and the prices rise, while more people are unemployed and ready to soldier overseas.
      If the growth is negative, older people have fewer younger people to support them, AND to pay off the debts accumulated with waging war and destruction.

      • Jimbob

        Don’t sound like Europe is much different than the US.

    • peaceangel

      I have been researching leaving the once great US for two years and when you read about the experiences of expatriots it is amazing how much more peacefully, more inexpensively and more happily in lots of places all over the world that are NOT experiencing our financial woes and likely won’t anytime soon. The EU is going to collapse as will the US economy and you can live in a country like Ecuador for instance for a third the cost of the US in rent or house payments and electric, water and trash are about $50 per month and they have amazing public transportation for pennies all over the country and recently they were rated as having the best health care program in the world. It costs about $100 per month for everyone in first class hospitals with US trained English speaking doctors. You can get a house call from your doctor for $20. You can live on the beach and eat at 5 star restaurants and pay $5.00 for dinner for two. LOTS of young Americans are working all over the world teaching English and they often get housing with that job. Many of them never come back. The biggest difference between the US and the other 6-8 nations I investigated to move to is that the people in the other nations are HAPPY. The people of these other nations have been around for thousands of years and ALL of them believe the US was once a great nation also, but today the world hates us and that is the biggest challenge to being accepted in expat nations, but usually IF you don’t act like an entitled, snotty, demanding, rude, stupid American you can be MUCH happier almost anywhere BUT here into the future.

      Don’t come to Australia… we have ‘Baby Bonuses’ (Paid to people who don’t pay much tax) of up to $5,000.00, we have ‘family tax benefits’ and a HUGE raft of welfare and government cash handouts.

      Only problem, if you are a hard worker and earn an above-average income, you will PAY and PAY and PAY and PAY for other people’s rent, housing, health-care, food, babies, nappies, LPG gas conversions on cars, Solar rebates on rootrop panels.. the list goes on and on and on.

      I pay more than 50% of every dollar I take home and find myself unable to claim a cent of anything.

      Oh, if you do pay for your own health insurance.. expect to get slugged for ‘public health’ anyway and then pay an additional levy ontop of that because you are ‘Rich’, if you make more than $84,000 p.a. in Australia.

      Australia is in the firm grip of Socialism.

      Frankly, the only ‘way out’ is to abandon the ‘Anglosphere’, but this can be hard if English is your only language but I am seriously considering making the move despite the potential difficulties.

      KYTim89 I wish you the best and must admit your insight at the age of 23 makes me hopeful. I am twice your age and gave back all that I made in the thirty productive years I have behind me. Banks and Government are in it together to take your Time, Cash and property. Get your conceal carry permit and work for cash. live outside the urban areas that breed socialism and don’t watch T.V.
      Speak the truth as you just have. Tell any one who is trying to make you feel bad you don’t want to pay your fair share to drop dead because when you have kids that couple of percent more you pay will mean a lot. You will not see your kids much if you sell your soul to the system and they will become perfect little socialists as a result coming home telling you how to live. This system needs your generation to demand an opportunity my parents squandered in the name of Humanism. Don’t shop at Walmart or target buy your things online and try not to vote Democrat they always let you down later. Definitely do not eat McDonald’s it will kill you!

    Revelation 13 isn’t to far off!!! Please think about excepting Jesus as your Lord and savior he loves you and died for you Repent of your sins!! ( repent turn away from have a change of mind about ) For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, there is no good thing that dwells within me. Isaiah says But we are all like and unclean thing, And all our righteousness is as filthy rags. We all fade like a leaf And our inquities like the wind have taken us away. But the Lord cries Look to Me and be saved all you ends of the Earth! For I am God and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness And shall not return, That every knee shall bow, Every tongue take an oath. He shall say, Surely in the Lord i have righteousness and strength. For he who knew no sin became sin for us that through him we may become the righteousness of God. There is ONLY ONE mediator between men and God and that is the man Christ Jesus. it is simple Paul writes in Romans The word is near you in your mouth and in your heart ( that is the word of faith which we preach); that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and BELIEVE in your heart God raised him from the dead you will be saved!! for it is with your mouth you confess and are saved and with your heart you believe and are justified. For what is your life but a myst that it is here for a short while and then vanishes. if you truely BELIEVE in your heart God will save you..if the Spirit speaks to you don’t harden your heart In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold NOW is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation. God loves you!!!!!

        • Gene Baugh BBA

          The numbers are staggering…

          If you mean the dollar numbers, they are bigger in part because the population is bigger.
          Consider this, if the government defaults on 17T or 117T, what’s the difference?
          The result is the same. We are all broke, right?
          I am concerned about the staggering number of people that will need to be kept alive.
          Not just here, but globally. There are a lot more of us now than there were in the thirties. seven billion people and climbing.

          • ractivist

            One can not consider one facet of the collapse and ignore the prophecy of the Bible within this context. Yes the world is about to implode due to fiat money and the evil that has brought the world to it’s knees. That evil will end up creating a one world government, a one world economic system and a one world religion (an apostacy). So you make a very valuable mistake ignoring the role of this being the end of the age, as prophecy suggest strongly today. Along this path half of the worlds peoples die, as ww3 looms on the horizon…. I suggest one consider these things, above and beyond buying gold or moving to far off country’s. Freedom is not secured by running away.

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            One world religion? Ha! What planet are you living on? And yes one can consider economics without regard to any of the hundreds of religions and their prophecies.

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            The world is not about to implode because of fiat currency, it is about to implode because of the contraction in PRIVATE debt which began in 2008. After rising every year since the thirties, fueling the economy, Private sector debt has gone from a 12.8% contribution to GDP to a -20% drag on GDP. Private sector debt dwarfs government debt by the way.
            The government is trying frantically to plug that hole.
            Unless people and corporations begin to releverage themselves we will be stuck in this mire.

      I understand your point! However, I am 59 and will retire in 3 years. I have worked all my life and still do. I paid into Social Security by force just like you do. Do I not deserve my Social Secuirty when it is my time? Of course I do. BTW those who were 55 or older on Jan 1st of 2012 will be in the exisitng system and are grandfathered. Making it okay for me supposviely. A new system IS going to be designed and made into law. No word yet what that will be. I suspect reduced benefits and higher eligibilty age or both.

      • Ralfine

        Probably like Europe.

        In Germany retirement age is increased yearly. The baby boomers of 1964 retire at 67.

        They can retire before, but only if they take reductions in their pension.

        Retirement doesn’t mean you work until 67. In Germany, usually you are considered too old for work and re-training over 45.

        There are 3 million unemployed but industry and banks want to get in young immigrants. Because young people with family and unclear immigration status are easier to put under pressure than old people who have already paid off their mortgages and have the children out of the house.

        And there are new talks to increase retirement age even further.

    • Ralfine

      OK, how much did you pay for kindergarten and school and hospital in the last 21 years?

    Why is minimum wage stagnant yet rent keeps increasing? Is it because rent is considered for those who don’t have money to own, thus they increase rents because of greed? or is it because of land price fixing in the housing market?

      I think you need to do some research on what many U.S. companies are paying to have their goods manufactured in foreign countries … and then what they are selling them for in the U.S.

    • markthetruth

      Then Wall street will see what it’s like as Corporate profits will drop big time. And the Inflated world the market is Enjoying will hit reality like the rest of us.

      the end…

    • Ralfine

      According to wikipedia (Annual Leave):

      “US law does not require employers to grant any vacation or holidays, and about 25% of all employees receive no paid vacation time or paid holidays.”
      ======================

      In comparison, Chinese labour law has detailed requirements for annual leave (5-15 days depending on length of service), over time, over time payment and payment for work on public holidays (300% of wage).

      And there are further requirements on social benefit payments by the employer.

      In China we had to set aside a certain amount of money, depending on the amount of wages and salaries paid, that had to remain available at all times and could only be used for the benefit of the employees. And everything accumulated over the year had to be spent within the year.

      So, should China apply substantial tariffs for goods imported from the US?

      • JustanOguy

        And people wonder why the Chinese worker can work for $5 a day, save half of it and still pay their bills…

        …. while the U.S. worker complains about minimum wage and ends up in the negative after each paycheck.

        • Ralfine

          Not really. Minimum wage in China is about $100 per month. But for that it is difficult to get people to work. You need to pay at least double that.

          Young workers grew up in areas where their parents earned $1 per day. So they are used to live on little.
          They are also used to live in close quarters.

          When they travel thousands of miles from home to Guangzhou or Shanghai, they will work in factories that have living quarters in the next building. With 12 people per room.

          Savings go towards university.

          Young Chinese in the disco can survive on one glass tea per night. Dinner with friends is much more important.

          The Chinese in our company were either studying after work, or playing badminton, or table tennis. Local schools rented out space each evening.

          • JustanOguy

            My point exactly Ralfine.

            The majority of people in the U.S. don’t have a clue of what it takes to get ahead. Just look at all of the people that had good jobs for 30+ years but are now broke and blaming everybody else.

          • Thomas Mrak

            A lack of personal responsibility is indeed part of it, but I am more inclined to think that government rules and regulations make it difficult for people willing to learn to better themselves financially.

            They also have made it easier for middle class and poor people to never accept responsibility for themselves or their children.

    • JustanOguy

      Then those Nikes, Smartphones, clothes, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc…. will cost even more.

  • Gene Baugh BBA

    This may start a firestorm but this is exactly why we are lucky to have a Democrat in the White House. The Republicans would be impeding access to food stamps like they are impeding access to abortion. The result would be starvation.

    • Ralfine

      Abortion happened at all times, even when it was illegal.

      And actually, how where kids growing up in orphanages and work houses appreciated by “upstanding” Christians?

      Whenever I hear Christians talking about respecting all life, I see priests christening guns in the battlefield.

      • otter1111

        Murder has happened at all times, even when it was illegal. That doesn’t make it moral or acceptable.

        There are waiting lists for people to adopt newborn children. Even if there wasn’t waiting lists, you can’t justify killing an innocent human being because they are not on one.

        Almost all religions and churches are against violence and war. There is the concept of a “just war” in order to defend oneself. Most of the atrocities in history have been committed by leaders against religion. Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc.

        • otter1111

          Where did Romney say he would pass legislation to end food stamps? You have a link to that?

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            I did not say that Romney said anything about ending food stamps. I asked a question to highlight philosophical differences between the two political parties.

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            I believe Obama and Romney are both fine men. We are in an ongoing Depression. I want a Democrat in charge.

          • otter1111

            We’ve had a Democrat in charge for over 4 years now, and if you’re a regular reader of this site, you can see just about everything has gotten dramatically worse. Reagan was able to turn around the economy in around under 2 years after the Carter debacle.

            What do you think Obama has done that has helped the economy? Is there anything?

    • otter1111

      Obama is destroying this country faster that Romney ever would have. The Republicans want to starve people idea is pure nonsense. Killing unborn children however, is somewhat of a sacrament to the Democrats. Remember how they booed the inclusion of God in their platform?

      • Gene Baugh BBA

        The global trends most people accuse of destroying America were in place long before either Obama or Romney were on our radar screens. How do you feel about Bush’s NAFTA?

        100% of people think abortion is a travesty. The right of women to choose to end a pregnancy that is inappropriate or ill timed and destructive to her life and her

        pursuit of happiness is what the majority of people and the SCOTUS uphold.

        Further, it is the nonreligious vote that carried the day for Obama. In America freedom of religion means freedom from religion too.

        For those who do not believe in the supernatural it is a violation of their rights to have to say “One nation, under God” in the pledge of allegiance.

        • otter1111

          You have got to be kidding me. Bill Clinton signed NAFTA, not George Bush!

          The real question about abortion is whether or not it is the killing of an innocent human being. No rational person would say the unborn child is not innocent-so does abortion kill a human being?

          Of course it does. The SCOTUS saying it’s legal doesn’t make it moral. Remember slavery?

          Twenty days after conception an unborn child has a heartbeat, at 42 days brain waves are detected, at 11 weeks you can see smiles on an ultrasound. There are many more facts with just a simple search. Especially photos, if you want to see the truth.

          If you believe abortion is OK before birth, why not after? What happens to make the child worthy of protection after birth, but not just before? Where do you draw the line?

          • Gene Baugh BBA

            Bush Sr. fast tracked NAFTA and signed it on 17 December 1992. Bill Clinton made its passage a major legislative initiative in 1993. Both parties were involved. The point is globalization is nothing new.
            I never said abortion was not the taking of a life. I view it as a necessary evil myself. People should not be forced to have a child they don’t want an did not plan for. Life is hard enough.

          • otter1111

            Correct. Bush Sr. ceremonially signed it, Bill Clinton signed it into LAW. Where I still disagree with you is that if abortion is evil, we shouldn’t be allowing it. I challenge you to view the video “The Hard Truth.” If in fact we are killing innocent human beings, then abortion should be outlawed.

    (1) Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
    (2) Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
    (3) Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
    (4) Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
    (5) Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
    (6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
    (7) Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
    (8) Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
    (9) Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
    (10) Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
    (11) Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

    We need to make gambling, play for pay sports, the practice of law for money, the sale of alcohol, the sale or use of drugs,and all other blood sucking exploitive valueless activities illegal. We need to make it a crime for anyone not to work no matter how little or how much money they have. These are just a few ideas on how to jumpstart our economy and improve our quality of life.

        I moved my family here to Mexico from the USSA.Like everywhere else it has its problems. No counrty on this earth is perfect.Here in mexico it is true that the majority of the people own their own homes and are not in debt like the Amerikans.
        You also have many more freedoms here than in the USSA.You can pretty much do what you want to your house(like remodeling, additions or even open a small business),which is all prohibited in the USSA.
        The Sheeple in the USSA think that the violence is worse in mexico than there.
        it isn’t true.Yes there is violence here,but I see it worse in many of the big cities(like Detroit,Los Angeles,Camden and many others than in Mexico.
        Wnen the Feces hit the fan and the Amerikan economy finally collapses,Its going to be a lot worse in the USSA,because the people will have so much more to loose.

    If I were young and going to work today, I would aim for a service related profession. Such as Heating and Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Roofing, or I would go for a medical related job.
    The over abundance of lawyers and people in banking has become a problem. The rule of thumb is that jobs not requiring a lot of work for the amount of money made is 15%. Anytime it goes beyond 15% a lot of people will go hungry. I suggest that feather bedding is rampant in the legal profession. Anytime you have an estate inheritance the lawyers get their pound of flesh. Anytime you have a real estate closing everyone under the sun steps forward with their hand out for money they did not earn.
    China does tariff our goods to death. We, on the other hand don’t do the same back to them.
    You want to see hyperinflation? Tariff everything coming in to the country and it will happen.
    I normally use luxury items as an example. For instance we had a burp in our currency exchange a few years back and our currency was worth less.
    The price of one item from Mexico went from 3.50 to almost 5.29 in one day’s time. Think about that. We are sitting on a time bomb of currency exchange right now. If everything retail went up at that rate, what could you afford to buy?
    The same item produced in the USA went from 3.25 to around 4.50. Someone in that luxury item industry made a killing.
    I used to think tariffs were the answer. But an old man in economics showed me what would really happen. It is too late for tariffs.
    What we have to have is business producing goods cheaper here than they can make them and ship them from abroad. That is your real tariff. Shipping costs a lot of money.
    The internet was a great money saver. Then shipping costs got involved.
    Now I go on line and find what I want, then check the local stores to see if they handle it. Many times it is the same on line as it is in the stores and you don’t pay shipping. You do pay sales tax. But that is a lot less than shipping.
    Even China is moving here because of the expense of shipping items. They are trying to buy into communities all over the place.
    The SWHTF when Obamanation Care comes into its own. He knows it. Right now they are backtracking for all they are worth because when it happens, the entire house of cards will come down on them.
    Then your local tax people will be out there trying to put all of us in jail for not being able to follow the rules. Not since the French Revolution has there been a blunder of this size. “Let them eat cake” is a mental attitude of our current government and it will come back to haunt them sometime down the road.

  • Barbara Henderson

    Part of the problem is that people see ‘assistance’ as something to be proud of instead of something of which they should be ashamed. Years ago going on assistance was at least an embarrassment – people didn’t want it made public – and their goal was to get off welfare as soon as possible. People wanted to make it on their own – and they looked to God and family for help – not the government. In kicking God out of our country and fathers out of families – we have lost a lot – and the Christian Work Ethic doesn’t exist among the greedy.

Employers only want to hire parttime so they will not be fined under the “affordable care act.” In my area they offer free lunches to kids on summer vacation at the local Y because for some it is the only meal they get all day when not in school. Unbelievable the number of people on food stamps now and there is talk of really cutting back on those programs. Also many states are cutting back on unemployment insurance and some are eliminating it entirely like NC. The quality of jobs has been circling the drain for quite.

    If you compare Tyre, in Isaiah 23, to the United States namely Manhatten where Wall Street is located, the two are exactly the same. Michael your view about the looming economic collapse will occur. The only thing is once it does happen the world will experience a world-wide depression. Then, nation will rise against nation because when you have nothing to lose why not. Isaiah 24, pretty much confirms that will be the result. Here is something else from 2001 to 2008 was 7 years and in 2015 will be 7 years. Why is 7 important because it relates to the Feast of Tabernacles and that God commanded the Jews to forgive each others debt. Another striking fact is that from 2014-2015 we will have 4 lunar eclipses and 2 solar eclipses and they all fall on the Jewish High Holy days.

    Then it’s ok. God told me to read marx. more current, more applicable to our times,

    • Chloe

      So you think a book that’s been accurate for several millenia is more accurate than Marx?

      • Chloe

        Actually, reverse that

      • Ralfine

        Accurate?

        The first question: how many humans did god create?

        Did he put only Adam and Eve into paradise first or all of them?

        Great example?

        He killed all the first born of those who didn’t follow him. Do you think this is an appropriate behaviour? Your boss comes and says: you sleep with me or I kill your first born. And you only do what I tell you. You need to tell all your impure thoughts to the priest, and no, you can’t have women priests. In fact, woman shall shut up in the church. When we want to hear sopranos in the church we can castrate little boys.

        Marx/Engels/Lenin (don’t really know which) said, the capital will concentrate in the hands of few. All power will eventually be in the hands of financial institutions, who will own the manufacturers and control everything with their financial power.

    400 Americans have wealth equivalent to the poorest 150 million Americans. This modern feudalism must go.

    Revolution won’t happen right away, but it will happen when the
    middle class loses enough of its wealth. Revolutions come from the
    middle class.

    The very rich recognize their personal vulnerability, so many of them
    have private bodyguards and even private armies. But they suffer from
    their own hedonism and desire to live the lifestyle their wealth
    demands, such as theaters, operas, baseball games, football games,
    international travel, skiing in Aspen and Vail, and tons of other
    activities that expose them to the working class. Rich people have
    servants and other daily contact with the poor. The rich live right
    among the rest of us only a few blocks away in many cases. For example,
    tons of super rich people live at 740 Park Avenue in Manhattan, in
    walking distance of desperate poverty.

    One day this will come to haunt them, when the people they thought of
    as loyal servants turn on them, because of the suffering of people in
    the servants’ families.

      stealing the money from the top 400 will accomplish nothing. As for the middle class revolting, it will be against maggots like yourself.

      • 2Gary2

        Money taxed away from the thieving rich and redistributed too the poor will be spent and will stimulate the economy. The rich have stolen the productivity gains over the last 40 years and now its pay back. One can’t steal from the rich as we are taking back what is rightfully ours.

    The only insurance or retirement policy you will have in the near future is your children. People who create large family networks now will survive anything. Check this video out advocating people have more kids:

    I realize it takes sacrifice but it is well worth it on so many levels.

    Has anyone heard of the New Message from God? It speaks about the decline in economies/jobs and offers concrete steps of preparation. I would like to hear what others think about this.

  • FounderChurch

    Stupidity and lack of any education or common sense added to the ill will of an evil nature is boring, obnoxious and destructive. You know who you are…. and everyone else knows who you are… Do you know no shame for the shameful THING you are?

  • Thomas Mrak

    We need to make it easier for businesses to be created and grow.

    Entrepreneurs provide jobs, but the government rewards privileged cronies and blames entrepreneurial types for the fact that there aren’t enough good jobs to go around.
