18 Stats That Prove That Government Dependence Has Reached Epidemic Levels ||By Michael Snyder


Heritage-Foundation-460x343

Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million?  In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system.

And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs?  When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government.  Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people.  In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.

The REAL Americans Begin to Fight Back to Re-Claim Our Country || By Jerry McConnell


jerry040814
Just recently while I was gathering notes here and there in an effort to truthfully inform my readers of what is happening to our beloved country and not the ruinous, distortioning terms of the far left; I mean VERY FAR LEFT; I came upon an online column by Larry Kudlow for MoneyNewss.com, published on April 04, 2014, titled, “Charles Koch Fights Back” and it struck me that everything that I had been seeking was staring straight at me.

Larry (formally) Lawrence Kudlow of Creators Syndicate, Inc. and creators.com along with CNBC is a fair-minded person who, as he says in his mini-bio for the website he has “always tried to represent all points of view. I have tried to listen and learn and debate both my liberal and my conservative friends.”

Obama: No, You Can’t Necessarily Keep Your Doctor || by Daniel Doherty

The president made a stunning admission today during his widely-anticipated interview with WebMD — namely, some Americans might have to switch doctors under the “Affordable” Care Act.

But before we get to the clip, let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?


“First, no matter what’ve you’ve heard, if you like your doctor — or health care plan — you can keep it.”

Obama: Health insurance isn’t expensive – just cancel cable and phones…Update: White House responds || by Ed Morrissey

Department of the Air Force revealing that President Obama incurred $7,396,531.20 in flight
expenses alone for his 2013 vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard and his trip to California to appear on the Jay Leno Show. “These are Inflight Expenses Only

And he tells us to buckle down and make cuts to our budgets!?

This is a few days old, but it’s amusing nonetheless. Barack Obama appeared in a town hall for Spanish-language media on March 6th to discuss ObamaCare and promote enrollments, and got challenged by a viewer on the economics of it for low-income Americans who are now forced to buy comprehensive health insurance. On a $36,000 annual income, the requirement to buy the broad policy rather than something a little more economical — say, hospitalization coverage combined with an HSA, a strategy which is now all but illegal — makes it impossible to comply. Pshaw, Obama replied. Why, all those low-income folks need to do is stop spending money on luxuries like cable television and cell phones!

No, really:

Inhofe: Obama Wasted $120 Billion on Global Warming Which Could Buy 1400 F-35s || By Melanie Hunter | Courtesy: CAPT David Tomlinson, USN (Ret)

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday at a hearing on the Defense Department’s Fiscal Year 2015 budget that President Barack Obama has wasted $120 billion on global warming over the past five years – money that would be better spent on the military.

“I’ve been working on this for quite some time … In the last five years, between 2009 and 2014, the president has spent $120 billion on the environmental agenda, mostly global warming, climate and that type of thing,” said Inhofe. “And in that respect, if you’ll just take the amount that was not authorized by Congress — and I’m talking about the environmental agenda, you could actually buy 1,400 F-35s.”

Bolting De Blasio: The Exodus Begins || by Pamela Geller


unnamed

And so it begins: De Blasio’s war on the producers has triggered a mass exodus form the city. 5,000 very wealthy families paid 30 percent of the city’s income tax. Losing even a few of them means significantly less money for filling potholes and hiring cops. That’s who this clown is attacking?

De Blasio is making good on his campaign platform — destroying the producer and greasing the grubby hooves of the moochers and the looters. Revenge of the loser.

But it’s not just the wealthy. Yesterday, I posted on the latest attack by Red Bill, closing the best-performing charter schools in the city as payback to the teacher’s union. Targeting the poor for his sleazy backroom deals.

Props to Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos, who today came to the rescue of these poor families by promising to step in to pay the rent of city charter schools denied free space under a crackdown by Mayor De Blasio, according to two sources.

“De Blasio’s anti-rich policies are driving wealthy people out of NYC,” NY Post, March 4, 2014

Money — it’s the root of all evil. Behind every great fortune lies a great crime. Or at least an unfair advantage.

That’s the gist of the liberals’ creed and justification for their war on wealth. The other half of their view holds that the poor are innocent victims of life’s rigged game.

Their narrative of evil winners and noble losers clears the way for self-heroic redeemers. They will deliver social justice by meting out punishment and spreading the wealth around. Their virtue entitles them to power.

It sounds like a comic-book view of life, but it’s the reality of liberalism today. And thanks to the de Blasio administration, New Yorkers are getting a bitter taste of its divisive nature. So much so that talk about quitting Gotham is surging in some circles.

One friend says 10 wealthy people have told him they are leaving and another says disgusted New Yorkers bought $1 billion in residential property in Florida since the November election. The Sunshine State confers an automatic tax cut of about 12 percent because it has no city or state income tax, nor does it have an inheritance tax.

Beyond taxes, the mayor’s open hostility is a factor. His insulting treatment of former Mayor Bloomberg at the inauguration remains a cloud over him. As one affluent woman, a self-described liberal, told me, “De Blasio hates me, so I hate him.” She doesn’t personally know him, but draws her conclusion from his words and deeds.

The central problem is the mayor’s childish view of wealth.

Defense budget: training over benefits || by P-G Matuszak

Washington, February 24, 2014 — In their defense budget plan, Department of Defense leaders suggest; troops and retirees sacrifice their benefits for training and equipment funds.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Dempsey presented their recommended 2015 budget and a defense budget plan for the next several years.

In a press conference at the Pentagon, Gen. Dempsey stated:

“[The DoD defense budget plan] represents a responsible and, more importantly, a realistic way forward. […] 

It provides the tools for today’s force to accomplish the missions we have been assigned, rebuilding readiness in areas that were, by necessity, de-emphasized over the past decade. […]

It reflects in real terms how we’re reducing our cost, the cost of doing business, and working to ensure that the force is in the right balance. […] The chiefs and I will never end our campaign to find every way to become more effective. […]

We’ll seek innovative approaches not just in technology, but also in how we develop leaders, aggregate our formations and work with our partners.

We will improve how we buy weapons and goods and services, streamline our headquarters, and, with the support of our elected leaders, shed excess infrastructure and weapons systems that we no longer need and simply can no longer afford.”

The leaders both stated that defense budgets in recent years split 50 percent for human resource costs and 50 percent for operational, training, and equipment costs. Facing a potentially reduced defense allocation, the DoD suggests cutting costs by cutting some military benefits and slowing the growth of others to easier fix the out of control defense budget. Their major point was that no base pay would be cut.
