This time it was in Nevada!  He is already preparing his concession speech for number six, I heard. Keep on trucking, Paul fans, and by all means, keep sending him your hard earned money.

Obama gave all of America's money to the international banks while America looses their homes, jobs and standard of living.  Yeah keep supporting a politician who constantly betrays you.

To those of us living in reality, Ron Paul is on his way to the Presidency.  Cuz not all Americans are doing well under Obama's crony-capitalism system.

Funny how you never mentiuon what your profession is there Krista and Tom H ?   Could it be that you guys have medical or government jobs that benefitted from crony-capitalism while the rest of us deal with what is left of the America cess-pool called the economy ?

More than likely....

Duh!  For the seven hundred billionth time, the bank bailouts happened under Bush, in October of 2008. Man are you dense.

Maybe in the Land of Oz.  Gee, I'm no expert but I think you have to win a primary first to get the nomination. He has lost five in a row.

Tomorrow, is number six, and he'll be losing to Rick Santorum!
 Shocked

Face it, Ron Paul is a LOSER!!!

Using Globalist meters..... ho hum !!!!!!!!    Roll Eyes

Bush/Obama both are Globalists who are working on the Bilderbergers behalf.   Does it really matter which Globalist does it.

Oh yeah cuz to gulliberals a multi-racial Globalist is good but the white Globalists are evil.

In fact all Obama will have to do is have an integrated UN mercenary force with latinos and black and asians and you'll lie right down for these guys cuz Obama cares for you so much and he is the one giving the orders to bring in martial law after the bankers collapse everything.

OH OBAMA SAVE ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yeah hop into the FEMA truck, for your protection,   oh thank you Mr. President.   Just sit right down... and we'll take you to the nice "processing center" and you won't have anything to worry about.

So, if they are both 'Bilderbergers,' why is it that the billionaires of this country have volunteered half a billion dollars to defeat Obama?

Why is all the Wall Street money going to Romney this time around?

And why are all the banks against Obama's consumer protection agency?

Answer: cause you don't know what you are talking about, as usual!

Cuz they are the corporatocracy that will benefit if the Globalists takeover America.

Why is all the Wall Street money going to Romney this time around?

Cuz Obama is too un-electable cuz of all his failures as President.

And why are all the banks against Obama's consumer protection agency?

  Cuz they haven't gotten the memo that it was just more Obama-hype.  The banks and Obama know what they are doing.

Name one piece of "left wing garbage" I have posted here that isn't true.
Just one!

You can't because you get all your crap from right wing websites that make crap up and you are so deep in their sewage you wouldn't even know that the truth is.

For all the people concerned with the facts out there, well, here they are:

23 straight months of job growth under Obama.
50,000 new manufacturing jobs just last month under Obama.
The billionaires of this country have volunteered half a billion dollars to defeat Obama
The banks against Obama's consumer protection agency
Wall Street money is all going to Romney in 2012!


That's cause Obama supports the Middle Class, Repugs like Romney and Paul just support the rich.

Yeah 42% unemployment and having Jeff Immelt outsource as many jobs as possible is really helping the middle-class.

For every job there are 800 applicants, and it is anywhere between 9-15 for people to find work anymore.  Thanks to Obama and the internet you can now apply to more jobs than ever online that don't ever end up hiring.

Too bad those who benefitted from Obama's crony-capitalism doesn't see this.  Governmental jobs, medical jobs, and those who do contract work for the government as well as solar cell companies that don't create one job or produce one product not to mention the lousy banks.  If it wasn't for the kleptocratic benefit of government then any other job or business left to free-market forces in America is suffering right now.  Go to any grocery store across America and half their business is food stamp related.  Again an indirect governmental subsidy.

I notice how you never talk about what kind of jobs are being created.  Ususally cuz all that gets created is minimum wage service sector jobs.  All the industrialized jobs are being moved offshore so it will make the Globalist's takeover of America that much easier.

Job creation under Obama, what a joke, what burger flipping, maid-service, lawn-maintenance, and grocery ?   What a great economic recovery plan.

It is 8.3%. And he just got an additional 72 weeks of unemployment insurance approved as part of the payroll tax deal, something that Repugs would never have done themselves cause they don't give a crap about ordinary people, just the rich.

That is why  Wall Street is lining up in droves to donate to REAL crony capitalist Mitt Romney, the corporate raider.

Record 1.2 Million People Fall Out Of Labor Force In One Month, Labor Force Participation Rate Tumbles To Fresh 30 Year Low


Zero Hedge
Friday, February 3, 2012

A month ago, we joked when we said that for Obama to get the unemployment rate to negative by election time, all he has to do is to crush the labor force participation rate to about 55%. Looks like the good folks at the BLS heard us: it appears that the people not in the labor force exploded by an unprecedented record 1.2 million. No, that’s not a typo: 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force in one month! So as the labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, the non institutional population increased by 242.3 million meaning, those not in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million. Which means that the civilian labor force tumbled to a fresh 30 year low of 63.7% as the BLS is seriously planning on eliminating nearly half of the available labor pool from the unemployment calculation. As for the quality of jobs, as withholding taxes roll over Year over year, it can only mean that the US is replacing high paying FIRE jobs with low paying construction and manufacturing. So much for the improvement.

Chart below shows it all – that jump is not a fat finger!


And Labor Force Participation:


This is the largest absolute jump in ‘Persons Not In Labor Force’ on record…and biggest percentage jump in 30 years.

This Is What An Economic Depression Looks Like In The 21st Century


The Economic Collapse
February 11, 2012

Do you want to see what a 21st century economic depression looks like? Just look at Greece. Once upon a time, the Greek economy was thriving, the Greek government was borrowing money like there was no tomorrow and Greek citizens were thoroughly enjoying the bubble of false prosperity that all that debt created. Those that warned that Greece was headed for a financial collapse were laughed at and were called “doom and gloomers”. Well, nobody is laughing now. You see, the truth is that debt is a very cruel master. Greeks were able to live way beyond their means for many, many years but eventually a day of reckoning arrived. At this point, the Greek economy has been in a recession for five years in a row, and the economic crisis in that country is rapidly getting even worse. It was just recently announced that the overall rate of unemployment in Greece has soared above 20 percent and the youth unemployment rate has risen to an astounding 48 percent. One out of every five retail stores has been shut down and parents are literally abandoning children in the streets. The frightening thing is that this is just the beginning. Things are going to get a lot worse in Greece. And in case you haven’t been paying attention, these kinds of conditions are coming to the United States as well. We are heading down the exact same road as Greece went down, and the economic pain that this country is eventually going to suffer is going to be beyond anything that most Americans would dare to imagine.

All debt spirals eventually come to an end. For years, Greece borrowed huge amounts of very cheap money, but there came a point when the debt became absolutely strangling and the rest of the world refused to lend the Greek government money at such cheap rates anymore.

Greece would have defaulted long before now if the EU and the IMF had not stepped in to bail them out. But along with those bailouts came strings. The EU and the IMF insisted that the Greek government cut spending and raise taxes.

Well, those spending cuts and tax increases caused the economy to slow down. Tax revenues decreased and deficit reduction targets were missed. So the EU and the IMF insisted on even more spending cuts and tax increases.

Even after all of the spending cuts and all of the tax increases that we have seen, the debt to GDP ratio in Greece is still higher than it was before the crisis began. Today, the Greek national debt is sitting at 142 percent of GDP.

Now the EU and the IMF are demanding even more austerity measures before they will release any more bailout money.

Needless to say, the Greek people are pretty much exasperated by all of this. They created this mess by going into so much debt, but they certainly don’t like the solutions that are being imposed upon them.

Protesters in Greece are absolutely outraged that the EU and the IMF are now demanding a 22 percent reduction in the minimum wage.

Most families in Greece are just barely surviving at this point. Unfortunately, Greece is probably looking at depression conditions for many years to come.

Over the past three years, the size of the Greek economy has shrunk by 16 percent.

In 2012, it is being projected that the Greek economy will shrink by another 5 percent.

Sadly, that projection is probably way too optimistic.

Over the past couple of months, it has been like someone has pulled the rug out from under the Greek economy. Just check out the following numbers from an article in the Telegraph by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard….

Another normal day at the Hellenic Statistical Authority.

We learn that:

Greece’s manufacturing output contracted by 15.5pc in December from a year earlier.

Industrial output fell 11.3pc, compared to minus 7.8pc in November.

Unemployment jumped to 20.9pc in November, up from 18.2pc a month earlier.

I have little further to add. This is what a death spiral looks like.

Can you imagine unemployment going up by 2.7 percent in one month?

This is what a 21st century economic depression looks like.

And needless to say, civil unrest is rampant in Greece.

The following is how a USA Today article described some of the protests that we saw in Greece this week….

Scores of youths, in hoods and gas masks, used sledge hammers to smash up marble paving stones in Athens’ main Syntagma Square before hurling the rubble at riot police.

The country’s two biggest labor unions stopped railway, ferry and public transport schedules, and hospitals worked on skeleton staff while most public services were disrupted. Unions were planning protests in Athens and other cities around midday.

Greek citizens are exasperated by the endless rounds of austerity that are being imposed upon them. They wonder how far all of this is going to go.

How much higher can taxes go in Greece? Greece already has tax rates that are among the highest in Europe….

Greece has the third highest rate of VAT in Europe, second highest gas/petrol tax, third highest tax on social insurance contributions, fifth highest VAT on alcohol, highest property tax and one of the worst corporate tax rates, without the quality of living or competitiveness to match.

How much farther can government pay be cut? Greek civil servants have had their incomes slashed by about 40 percent since 2010.

How would you feel if your pay was reduced by 40 percent?

Large numbers of Greeks are rapidly reaching the end of their ropes. The following is from a recent article in the Independent….

“People are scared and haven’t really realised what’s happening yet,” George Pantsios, an electrician for the country’s public power corporation, said. He has only been receiving half of his €850 monthly wage since August. “But once we all lose our jobs and can’t feed our kids, that’s when it’ll go boom and we’ll turn into Tahrir Square.”

Instead of turning violent, others are simply giving in to despair. According tothe Daily Mail, large numbers of Greek children are being abandoned because their parents simply cannot afford to take care of them anymore. The note that one mother left with her little toddler was absolutely heartbreaking….

One mother, it said, ran away after handing over her two-year-old daughter Natasha.

Four-year-old Anna was found by a teacher clutching a note that read: ‘I will not be coming to pick up Anna today because I cannot afford to look after her. Please take good care of her. Sorry.’

Sadly, there are an increasing number of Greeks that are giving up on life entirely. The number of suicides in Greece rose by 40 percent during just one recent 12 month time period.

But we haven’t even seen the worst in Greece yet. The worst is still yet to come.

And the people of Greece are going to get angrier and angrier and angrier.

According to one recent poll, about 90 percent all of Greeks are unhappy with the interim government led by Prime Minister Lucas Papademos.

This week, that government has started to fall apart. Over just the past few days, 6 members of the 48-member government cabinet have resigned. Not only is there real doubt if the new austerity measures will be approved, there is very real doubt if this government will be able to hold together much longer.

Frustration with the EU and the IMF has reached a fever pitch in Greece. Just check out what Reuters is reporting….

In a letter obtained by Reuters on Friday, the Federation of Greek Police accused the officials of “…blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty” and said one target of its warrants would be the IMF’s top official for Greece, Poul Thomsen.

So what is going to happen next in Greece?

The truth is that nobody knows.

But whatever kind of “deals” are reached, the reality is that nothing is going to keep Greece from continuing to experience depression-like conditions for quite some time.

Unfortunately, Greece is not an isolated case.

Portugal, Ireland, Italy and Spain are all going down the same path and Europe does not have enough money to bail all of them out.

To get an idea of how much money it would take to bail out the financially troubled nations of Europe, just check out this infographic that was recently posted on ZeroHedge.

A day of reckoning is coming for the United States as well. As CNBC recently noted, the U.S. debt problem is far worse than the European debt problem is.

That is why I have written over and over about the U.S. national debt and about how the U.S. government is spending too much money.

Right now, the U.S. government is still able to borrow gigantic mountains of very cheap money and is spending money as if tomorrow will never come.

Well, just like we saw in Greece, when debt gets out of control a day of great pain eventually arrives.

What we are watching unfold in Greece right now is coming to America.

You better get ready.

That is why  Wall Street is lining up in droves to donate to REAL crony capitalist Mitt Romney, the corporate raider.

Wall Street is full of sychophantic yuppies who are lining up to do the will of the Globalists.

They support Globalists in both Bilderberg parties.

For every $4 they donated to Obama they donated $1 to McCain.  They know how the game is played.  Now that Obama has burned out politically, they'll spend $4 for Mitt to every $1 for Obama.

You must work in either the medical field or have a government job to be so clueless as to the suffering that goes on all around you.  Maybe you should take a walk down mainstreet and see how in a typical block 4 out of 10 homes are being foreclosed on.   6 out of 10 in major cities.  Of course if you live in medical-land or governmentopia you don't see what is happening out in real America right now.

Don't worry tho, the Tzar's family in Russia partied it up while the Russians suffered too.   What goes on in Greece and Iceland may very well happen here in America too.  Then won't you gov and medical types be surprised.

And you must be a moron to think that all that started under Obama.  The facts again:

The economic collapse happened under Bush.
He bailed out the banks (no strings 700 billion)
The housing crisis started under rules that Bush was responsible for!
We lost eight million jobs under Bush
Outsourcing ramped up under Bush.

Under Obama: 23 straight months of job growth
Unemployment is down from 10% to 8.3%
He saved the auto industry
Created three million new jobs!

You are the type of person to whom the facts mean nothing cause you just want your guy in there. Even though NONE of his policies will make your life one bit better because you are not rich!
