BECK GOES OFF THE GRID FOR 4TH OF JULY VACATION

Posted by BH
FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER WFZR FZTV


Glenn and his family went “off the grid” over the 4th of July week, heading to a farm in the middle of the country without internet, television, or cell phone service. How were they able to survive?
“Barely came back from vacation. We went up to some farmland and we herded cattle, we rode horses. I’m going back up in a couple of weeks and we’ll have chickens and lambs,” Glenn said.
“I contend that the problem with our society is that we have gotten away from cows. We have gotten away from nature. We’ve gotten away from the farmlands,” he explained.
“I contend that because we’ve gotten away from the farms, we no longer see nature in practice. We never see. My son doesn’t understand. He saw something naturally happening in front of him. Instead, what we see off the farm, what we see in our cities, what we see in our schools, what we see every night spilling into our houses is what we think is natural on television, which is completely unnatural. We see all these TV shows and everything else that are not real. They’re not based in anything that’s real.”
“Because we’ve gotten away from nature and we are just taking other people’s words for it, we also are for things like green energy. That’s the biggest pile of bullcrap I’ve ever seen, and I have been ‑‑ I’ve spent ten days with bullcrap. Not all the actual bullcrap, but the wind‑power and solar power. We have a farm that is off the grid and it’s wind‑power and solar power. That’s bullcrap.”
Glenn explained that the solar and wind power was not enough to keep the electricity on the farm running. Even the small refrigerator, powered by propane, could only get to fifty-one degrees.
“If we still lived down on the farm and we would listen to people who were actually using it, well, then we’d know it’s a pile of crap. It’s nice to augment, but by Thursday of last week, we just had the generators running the whole time.”
Stu added, “When countries try to implement this sort of power in a large sense, that’s exactly what happens. The wind‑power isn’t running all the time, the solar power obviously at night isn’t running all the time and they have to augment it with good old fossil fuel.”
Pat said, “If solar worked great, we would all be fine with solar. That would be great.”
“We’ve just disconnected from reality and sanity because we’re so far away from it,” Glenn said.
“You know, I went to church yesterday in this small town. There’s about 400 people who live in this town. I think about 390 of them, I haven’t met all of them, but I bet about 390 of them I would wish I could be. The people that I met were all rock solid people and they’re the people that honestly that if you go to New York, they are the people that on, you know, Central Park would make fun of, mocking. Mock them. Guarantee it. Guarantee it. Because they’re all people that work with a tractor. They’re all people that really work for a living. You never think you work for a living? I mean, I played on a tractor last week. I played on it. I didn’t work. I mean, yeah, I herded some cattle. Really? And if it didn’t work, I could call somebody and go, ‘The cattle won’t listen to me. Can you come get them?’” Glenn said.
“These are people who actually work for a living. And it’s because of that, their children are different,” Glenn said.
“I saw a difference in my children within three days. Within three days. No Internet, no television, no phones, no texting. Unfortunately no electricity, which kind of made the ice cream a little soggy. That one we have to fix. The rest of it… they change. We’ve changed as a culture because we no longer see nature in action. And when you see nature in action, you see the patterns of life. Because we’re no longer close to anything that’s not ‑‑ that you don’t plug in, we don’t see the patterns in life, we don’t see the pattern of the family in life. And the more we plug in, the more we tune out and the weaker we become as people.”
“Go find yourself some farmland. Go vacation. In some town that you probably would have made fun of when you were a kid. This is exactly the kind of town that I would have made fun of as a kid. This is exactly the kind of town that I would say no way that I would ever live there or want to live there. I do now.”

OBAMA TEAM COVERS UP LIES WITH MORE LIES

The White House has pulled out all the stops in their efforts to defeat Mitt Romney. They’ve used some odd fundraising tactics, like asking people to donate to the campaign in lieu of wedding gifts, and now they are running campaign ads with blatant lies in them. The lies are so bad that they’ve been debunked by multiple sources like factcheck.org and PolitiFact. But when Obama advisor Robert Gibbs was grilled on the ads, he double downed on the lies.
Mediaite reported, “On CNN’s State of the Union today, Candy Crowley grilled Obama campaign advisor and former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on a recent attack ad released hitting Mitt Romney for outsourcing. Crowley ran the ad, pointing out that The Washington Post rated it false (“four Pinocchios”), and challenged Gibbs to explain why this is still being used as a line of attack against Romney.”

If Not Now . . .


“At what point do we hold our side accountable? Contrary to what some of you want to think, it was not the Democrats who got us to $16 trillion in national debt. It was bipartisan.
Despite making clear that I was not advocating a third party, but rather recognizing that one will spring up if the Republican leadership does not pay attention to the state of its own party, many not only assumed wrongly my advocacy, but resorted to the worn out argument of the Republican leaders over several generations — “we must fight the Democrats first” or the variant “the top priority is beating Barack Obama.”
The problem with this argument is it never ends. How many more trillion dollars must we add to the national debt before the “wait and focus on the other side first” crowd wakes up to what they have enabled?
When George Bush decided to pass Ted Kennedy’s No Child Left Behind plan as his own, conservatives were told they needed to rally and help the President, given his victory while losing the popular vote. We needed unity.
After steel tariffs for Pennsylvania, “hush,” we were told because we were trying to set the stage for a re-election.
Then came the prescription drug benefit and we better not challenge the President because … 9/11 … patriotism … build the party.
He nominated Harriet Miers and more than half the conservative establishment beclowned themselves standing with him.
Then came immigration reform and those who disagreed from the right were racists. Solidarity!
TARP . . . the General Motors bailout . . . still Republicans told Republicans we couldn’t hold our own side accountable because we needed to fight the left “and oh my goodness litmus tests!!!!!”
Earmarks? “Litmus tests!!!!” and “pshaw, they’re just a little teeny-tiny piece of the budget.”
That was some time around $10 trillion in national debt.
Then the GOP began cutting deals with Barack Obama. “Trust them,” others said, “they have a plan.” The tea party led them to victory and the tea party congressmen started voting just like their leadership. The debt ceiling increased, spending expanded, Pledge to Nowhere pledges were breached, and still we hear “we have to fight the other side first.”
And then there was the Senate variant, “Oh Mitch McConnell had to do that or else Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins and . . . and . . . and . . .”
Friends, at what point do we hold our side accountable? $20 trillion in debt? $50 trillion in debt? Contrary to what some of you want to think, it was not the Democrats who got us to $16 trillion in national debt. It was bipartisan. Some of it legitimate, much of it not, and all to the tune of “let’s focus on the Democrats instead. They’re the real bad guys here.”
The leaders of the GOP give lip service to smaller government but just last week shut down legitimate private businesses to feed the leviathan more tax revenue. Republicans in the House of Representatives are now urging candidates not to sign the ATR tax pledge and Republicans in the Senate are cutting deals that will boost revenue because — deficits. And still they add to the debt.
So if not now, when? Not until we’re all speaking Chinese apparently.
If the conservative movement cannot fight on two fronts, we’re screwed. But some of you will be okay with that as long as its an elephant and not a donkey screwing you.

 WE are screwed and WE are doing it to ourselves because WE refuse to see and admit that it is the majority of both parties in Washington who are playing the distraction games while feathering their own nests at OUR expense.  WHEN or better yet if, WE will wake up and face reality, WE might have a reasonable chance of cleaning this mess up.  But it is going to take a lot of house cleaning, hard work and a lot of time to turn this disaster around.       YOUR CHOICE, AMERICA.




MAY BE WE DO NEED A THIRD PARTY

Posted By Woody Pendleton

Maybe We Really Do Need a Third Party


“The problem for the GOP is that it is in danger of fracturing, not because it has moved so far right, but because it refuses to actually practice what it preaches.
Senator Max Baucus of Montana receives campaign donations from the parent company of Phillip Morris. Senator Baucus then puts a provision in the highway transportation bill banning roll your own cigarette operations, a business that does not exist in Montana.
Forty people in Harry Reid’s Nevada and elsewhere will lose their jobs because a transportation bill actively and willfully legislated a legal business out of business by driving up the regulatory burden so excessively. Major cigarette manufacturers championed the legislation and Republicans supported it because it will increase tax revenue without them voting to raise taxes.
Put bluntly, Republicans voted to do exactly what they they accuse the Democrats of doing — shut down businesses by driving up regulatory burdens in an effort to increase taxes.
Max Baucus may have inserted the provision, but it made it through Republican House of Representatives. Maybe we do need a third party to do the job Republicans campaign on doing, but then get to Washington and don’t actually do.
I am not at the point of really advocating a third party. But I know me writing this will get the attention it needs to get.
The Republicans in Washington really have no clue.
For several months members of the media have lusted after a third party candidate — a serious “grown up” to speak the hard truths about the deficit, the need to raise taxes, etc. In fact, pay attention you people in the media, there is a very simple formula I have developed to explain the media these days:

Greater the number of stories about Americans Elect and No Labels
Equals
The lower the number of viewers and readers of the media outlet
The media elite who get positively orgasmic about things like No Labels and Americans Elect are convinced they are tapped into the pulse of the American people, but in fact are only tapped into the pulse of their throbbing for people like themselves being put in charge instead of the hicks and rubes from America’s river valleys the tea party types keep agitating for.
A third party could have been successful in the United States this year, but it would have required a populist attack against Washington and spending. Done right, it would have resonated across Tea Party and Occupy circles. But it did not happen.
As media ratings have declined and the talk within Beltway media circles of “serious” “adult” “third party” challenges has increased, Republican leaders in Washington who have more and more in common with the media that covers them and less and less in common with their constituents back home — hell, look at Indiana’s Senator who does not even live in Indiana anymore and consequently got thrown out much to the outrage of Beltway elites — have become less and less like the Party of Reagan and more and more like the Party of John Anderson.
The problem for the GOP is that it is in danger of fracturing, not because it has moved so far right, but because it refuses to actually practice what it preaches.
The Republican Party’s actual policy positions help small businesses and individuals. It is the party of the individual against the collective. But Republican leaders are not willing to actually fight for those values in the face of media criticism.
In fact, the very types of people the media and more senior Republicans and Democrats alike are advocating are the very people who made the compromise decisions to get us to $16 trillion in debt. And, by the way, we spent ourselves there we didn’t tax ourselves there.
This comes full circle.
A Republican Party that has been unwilling to cut spending has now let go through Congress legislation to shut down lawful, legal businesses because cigarette industry lobbyists and a Senate Democrat wanted it done.
We’re not ready for a third party and both this site and I will continue advocating for conservative Republicans, but if the GOP doesn’t finally get a clue, I won’t be surprised to see it implode. By the way, this year fewer and fewer Republican candidates are signing the tax pledge on the advice of Republican members of Congress. This is another warning sign that the Eric Cantor led Republican conference is going far afield from what those who vote Republican actually want.
The GOP better get back to its pro-liberty roots quickly.
One editorial note: to save you all from yourselves, I’m not even going to entertain comments on this post. You can agree or disagree with me on twitter @ewerickson.

 by wp:    The biggest problem WE have is that the concept of two parties in Washington,D.C. is a fallacy.  The Professional Organization of  Politicians in Washington has degenerated into the Progressive Party of take care of ourselves.  They look out for themselves at the expense of WE, THE PEOPLE.  They have abandoned Americas ideals and laws for ones that allow them to line their own and each others pockets using methods WE would face prison for.  THEY are the ELITES and consider themselves ENTITLED to all the perks, high living and dishonest dealing that goes on constantly in Washington.  A third party????    HOW ABOUT ONE PARTY ,MADE UP OF AMERICANS WHO BELIEVE IN HONOR, HARD WORK, HONESTY, PATRIOTISM, THE CONSTITUTION AND A DEPENDENCE ON ALMIGHTY GOD.  LIKE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS DID.  ITS WHAT BUILT THIS NATION AND MADE HER GREAT.  But the pols don't care about that.  It doesn't pay as well.





UN DEMANDS MORE GLOBAL TAXES FOR ITS USE

Posted By Woody Pendleton

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER  WFZR/TV

More Demands for Global Taxes from the United Nations

Given the kleptocratic nature of international bureaucracies (particularly my good buddies at the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), I’m never surprised when a bad proposal is unveiled.
And since the United Nations has a long track record of supporting global taxation (with the money going to the U.N., of course), I’m even less surprised when that crowd produces another idea for fleecing people in the productive sector of the economy.
Here are some excerpts from a Yahoo report.
The United Nations on Thursday called for a tax on billionaires to help raise more than $400 billion a year for poor countries. An annual lump sum payment by the super-rich is one of a host of measures including a tax on carbon dioxide emissions, currency exchanges or financial transactions proposed in a UN report that accuses wealthy nations of breaking promises to step up aid for the less fortunate.
These people love taxes, perhaps because they get tax-free salaries.
But setting aside their despicable hypocrisy, there’s scant evidence, if any, that foreign aid does anything other than foment corruption in recipient nations. And there’s lots of evidence, by contrast, that free markets and small government do create prosperity.
Yet the United Nations reflexively wants to line the pockets of the political elite in poor nations. And we’re not talking about pocket change.
The report estimates that the number of people around the globe worth at least $1 billion rose to 1,226 in 2012. There are an estimated 425 billionaires in the United States, 315 in the Asia-Pacific region, 310 in Europe, 90 in other North and South American countries and 86 in Africa and the Middle East. Together they own an estimated $4.6 trillion so a one percent tax on their wealth would raise more than $46 billion, according to the report. “Would this hurt them?” it questioned.
You have to appreciate the supreme irony of pampered international bureaucrats demanding that others should surrender some of their money.
I’m also impressed by their ability to come up with new tax schemes.
The document gives other ideas for international taxes, including:
  • – a tax of $25 per tonne on carbon dioxide emissions would raise about $250 billion. It could be collected by national governments, but allocated to international cooperation.
  • – a tax of 0.005 percent on all currency transactions in the dollar, yen, euro and pound sterling could raise $40 billion a year.
  • – taking a portion of a proposed European Union tax on financial transactions for international cooperation. The tax is expected to raise more than $70 billion a year.
…Without commenting on any of the individual taxes proposed, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that if the new “innovative financing” is to become viable, “strong international agreement is needed.”
Let’s close with some good news. Proposals for global taxation from the United Nations are so radical and so far from the mainstream that even the Obama Administration generally is opposed to these crack-pot ideas.
“I’m horribly offended”
Though that may simply be because Obama wants to seize the money for his own class-warfare purposes and doesn’t want to compete with other taxing authorities. Sort of the way hyenas and vultures sometime fight over a carcass. Or how inner-city gangs sometimes fight over turf.
Actually, I apologize for those analogies. I hope the carrion feeders and gang-bangers of the world will forgive me for equating them with politicians.
“That’s an unfair slur”
Hyenas and vultures both have valuable roles in the ecosystem. And gangs sometimes engage in non-coercive activities such as selling drugs to yuppies.
It’s beyond my abilities, however, to say something nice about politicians.

WHAT HATH JOHN ROBERTS WROUGHT ??

What Hath John Robert Wrought



We must repeal Obamacare! Sign the petition!
State legislative candidates may think they’re in the minor leagues, but a big league issue is coming at them. Over many years of door-knocking and community forums in five runs for Colorado’s statehouse, I’ve practiced diplomatically discussing misdirected questions about federal issues above my pay grade (way above, sadly). But in this critical election, state candidates everywhere have to swing at an urgent fastball delivered by Team Obama-Roberts: Should your state throw in with the president and significantly expand the Medicaid program as part of his make-over of U.S. healthcare?
Of course, Team Obama-Pelosi didn’t intend to call state lawmakers into the game on that question. But reliever Roberts threw the pitch straight at them when he revised the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to save it from a 9th inning run-down. Congress’s original play required states to significantly expand Medicaid benefits, or lose all of Uncle Sam’s matching dollars for healthcare for the poor. That devastating hit was unthinkable for states struggling with mushrooming costs. Their only option was submission. But Roberts brushed off the play, and said Congress can’t cut all Medicaid funding to uncooperative states; just the increased dollars tied to the expanded new benefits. (Someday, Roberts may have to account to a higher power for where he got the authority to re-write the playbook, rather than simply call balls and strikes, but that’s a different column).
The effect of Robert’s playmaking is that state governments, not Congress, will have the last word on a critical piece of Obamacare—growing the Medicaid program. This pushes the discussion of what to do about the healthcare law to a broader audience. States will have to act one way or the other. Every voter in every legislative district in the country deserves to hear whether candidates think this is a good idea and how they will vote.
Statehouse candidates who think thrusting government deeper into healthcare is exactly the wrong kind of reform, especially as the modern world faces fiscal meltdown under the pressure of public entitlements, have a critical opportunity to make their case and to educate voters. Here are some points they might consider:
Shortly after Medicare’s creation in 1965, Congress estimated the program would cost $12 billion in 1990. In reality, the number was $110 Billion. Virtually every projection the government has made about every facet of Medicaid has grossly understated actual costs.
Medicaid is one of the biggest and fastest-growing parts of the national budget and of every state budget. Pouring public money into a good or service doesn’t make it “more affordable”; it just changes who’s paying. Pouring public money into a good or service doesn’t lower costs; it tends to inflate them.
Public programs lack the discipline of market forces based on supply and demand, so government regulators have to invent alternative ways to try to keep costs down. The most common strategy is cutting the reimbursement rates government allows to providers. But Congress has gone to that well too often, with increasingly harmful results. Already, many providers won’t accept Medicaid patients because of the low compensation. It is increasingly difficult for poor people to find basic care; they’re covered on paper, but not in reality.
When providers lose money treating under-funded Medicaid patients, they have to cover their shortfall by charging their insured patients more. That cost shift, from insured patients to government funded patients—rather than the media’s favorite bogeyman, unpaid ER care--is by far the biggest cost shift in healthcare.
Too, expanding public programs worsens other problems in private healthcare. More generous public options drives a problem called “crowd-out,” When public benefits climb higher up the income scale, they make it harder for struggling employers to justify the cost of providing insurance; their employees will be covered anyway. More companies are succumbing to the pressure to drop coverage.
Crowd-out does damage in all directions. Fewer people pay into the actuarial pool that sustains private health coverage, pressing rates even higher. More people fall into the underfunded public program, raising costs there, causing pressure for provider cuts, driving greater cost-shift, and the death spiral continues.
All these issues are critical for the future path of healthcare and for state and federal budgets. 2012 presents a rare and important opportunity for local candidates to engage crucial national questions. Batters up. 

 by wp   It is a wonderful thing how our nation was working and doing fairly well, yes needing improvement, and WE elected a man who promised change and that He would bring America down to the level of the rest of the third world nations and so many thought :  how wonderfull.  Well here we are and how wonderfull is it???  Over half the workforce working for the government being payed by the taxes the growing majority of the population can no longer pay because their are less jobs available every day due to a growing work force . and no jobs available for them.   SMART THINKING.




DON'T BLAME ROBERTS, BLAME OBAMA

Posted By Woody Pendleton

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER   WFZR/TV

Don’t Blame Roberts, Blame Obama



We must repeal Obamacare! Sign the petition!
Don’t Blame Roberts, Blame Obama
Feeling misled? You certainly should. Congress created a law so complex that it occupies between 2,400 and 2,800 pages depending on who says what, almost all of them unread by the people who voted for it. President Obama and his Democratic colleagues told you many things about the law – most of which were either mischaracterizations or outright lies. What Chief Justice John Roberts did was tell the truth, and now we can move forward.
This is all on Chief Justice Roberts. The four liberals who concurred with him don’t believe that the individual mandate is a tax. They firmly believed that the government had the right under the commerce clause to expand the power of the federal government in a sweeping manner. They inherently believe in these matters that the government has few limitations. They were so convinced of that they appeared to be willing to emasculate the commerce clause to expand the federal government’s grip over 18% of our economy. The four signed on to what Roberts wrote and sacrificed the future of their souls for achieving their goals today. But the question remains did they sacrifice anything?
Roberts did do two major things in his opinion. First, he stated the court has limited powers to control the legislative branch. In effect, he told Americans that “You elected these people, they are your representatives, and you have to live with their actions.” Second, he put a stop to the damnable lies about taxes. Politicians lie all the time about the manner in which they extract increasing amounts from your pocket, usually calling them fees, dues, excise fees, duties, levies, or something else. Roberts just confirmed what we all know: if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck – it is a duck. Remember this penalty -- which is estimated to hit four million Americans -- is to be collected by the 20,000 new IRS agents. Roberts may have done it for contrived reasons, but elected officials can never again claim that additional money going to government is anything other than a tax.
Even the best and brightest are still duped by the verbiage. Charles Krauthammer said that he’s open to fines, but not taxes. What he’s missing is that fines are now much more than mere penalties; a parking ticket that used to cost $20 is now $50 – and is used to balance the city budget. A “fine” levied against a corporation by the SEC doesn’t go to the aggrieved stockholders, but to the coffers of the federal government; what was once $500,000 has become $5,000,000. States love delinquent taxpayers because they rake in huge fines that get increased with every budget shortfall. Fines are nothing more than a duck not called a duck.
But now we can have an honest debate about the value of the Affordable Care Act, which, frankly, is a complete fraud. Its supporters tout that children up to 26 years old can remain on their parents’ plans, but never mention that the parents must then pay for comprehensive insurance plans that cost substantially more than healthy young adults can obtain on their own. They applaud the elimination of lifetime caps on payments by insurance companies without pointing out the obvious consequence that premiums will increase significantly to cover these costs. And these are just two of many misleading claims.
Now we must convey how deceptive this law is at its core. If you don’t believe me, believe Obama’s Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. He stated “The ACA represents the largest set of tax law changes in more than 20 years and presents a major challenge to the Internal Revenue Service.” It includes 20 new taxes (now 21 after Roberts’ ruling), few of which have gone into effect and most of which are deviously imposed on us by raising them on third parties. For example, there is a new tax on medical devices that will be passed through to insurance companies – and then, of course, to policyholders (you). Democrats have already imposed a new tax on pharmaceutical companies, which raises the cost of your prescriptions through higher premiums or larger out-of-pocket costs. Americans need to familiarize themselves with these 21 new taxes and realize that when our medical costs and insurance premiums costs soar, it is ultimately ObamaCare that is responsible. Furthermore, these tax rates will inevitably increase, with the overwhelming portion of the burden squarely on the shoulders of the middle class. That’s because that’s where the money is.
We have to inform the American people that there are 157 commissions and boards that will start going into effect in 2013. These will be filled with government wonk types convinced that they know how the health care system should operate. They will write thousands of pages of regulations and make decisions for every one of us. Your health care will no longer be determined by you or your doctor.
We now have a moment of clarity. The mandate is what everybody, except the lawyers for the President, was unwilling to call it. ObamaCare is a huge tax increase that will hit every working American – specifically the working class upon whom Obama promised not to raise taxes. The law will put a stranglehold around the neck of all Americans, and ultimately centralize every decision about health care in Washington.
Democrats have created their mantra – this is over, let’s move on. Mr. Romney must, with the help of all of us, communicate to the electorate that ObamaCare is a disaster. Justice Roberts has given us that opportunity. If we cannot accomplish this goal, we deserve to lose the election – a loss that would put an end to the America we know.


 REGARDLESS as to who is to blame the ultimate blame must fall on we, the American People.  WE elected the idiots that drafted this abomination into office, and WE have allowed them to run rogue with the checkbook and wealth of our nation.  It is time WE took back the checkbook and cleaned out the cesspool WE allowed to develop in OUR nations capitol.     by wp


THE BACKWARD PRESIDENT

Posted By Woody Pendleton

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER   WFZR/TV

Backwards President

The June jobs report was disappointing for the third consecutive month – just 80,000 new jobs created. And, yet the President said "that's a step in the right direction."
Baloney!
Two new workers are being added to the population for every one job that is created. The only direction Obama has the economy moving is backward.
A quick look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics report shows that the Civilian Labor Force grew by 156,000 workers in June – nearly twice the number of new jobs.
Just to keep up with population growth, on average our economy needs to be adding about 125,000 jobs per month. To dig out from this deep sustained recession, replace the 8 million jobs lost and keep pace with population growth, economists tell us that we need to be creating at least 250,000 jobs monthly for about five years.
However, over the last three months the size of the work force population has increased by 75,000 more than the total number of people with a job. Obama's economic policies don't even have us treading water, much less moving forward.
In addition to the phony "right direction" claim last Friday, Obama touted the creation of "4.4 million new jobs over the past 28 months." It actually has been 30 months, but close enough considering the source.
But, what Obama chooses to ignore is that the population total increased by 7.3 million over those same 30 months, according to the Labor Department. Using a normal Labor Force Participation Rate of 66.5%, slightly more that 5 million new jobs would have been necessary just to keep pace with population growth.
Not only has Obama failed to lead us to a strong economic recovery, the numbers from his own Labor Department suggest we're still losing ground. 
 What we should do is send all federal politicians back to school so they can learn how to do math correctly.  IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THEY NEVER LEARNED EVEN THE BASICS.   by wp




OBAMA'S MISSING 2ND YEAR AT COLUMBIA FOUND??

BLACK MOBS TERRORIZE "WHITE" CITIES UNREPORTED BY MEDIA

Posted By Woody Pendleton

 FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER   WFZR/TV



It has been called one of America’s “whitest big cities” – with 66 percent of residents describing themselves as non-Hispanic white in the 2010 census – but it is not immune to black-mob attacks on a pregnant woman, veterans, the elderly, young people, homosexuals, Asians and others.
Seattle has “fewer problems with racism than other cities,” said the blog So Seattle. “Ethnic tensions … seem less tangible.”

While Seattle may not have the day-in, day-out racial violence of a Chicago, or the peculiar racial lawlessness of small-town Peoria, more and more, people are paying attention to the increasingly visible and brutish mayhem black mobs are visiting on their victims.
In 2010, 17-year-old Jessica Redmon-Beckstead – who was pregnant at the time – was riding the bus with her boyfriend when five black women taunted, attacked, kicked, punched and robbed her.
The assailants were laughing the whole time. One even complained about a broken fingernail.
“My girlfriend’s pregnant!” shouted the boyfriend as they punched her and kicked him in the face.
One woman yelled, “We didn’t hit her in the stomach!”
Her retort got a few laughs – and then the violence resumed.
The attack was caught on video and posted by the Seattle Times.
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the suspects were all riding the bus with free passes from Seattle Public Schools. Within a few weeks, all five were arrested, charged and convicted.
The baby was born healthy.
The day after the attack, King County Sheriff Sue Rahr assured citizens of Seattle this hyper-violent episode was an “isolated incident and could have happened anywhere.”
At least part of Rahr’s statement was correct: It could happen anywhere. And often does.
But it is far from isolated, as even the local TV news reporters discovered. Bus rider Gil Costello told the local Fox affiliate, KCPQ, violence on the bus “happens all the time. They just never report it.”
The Fox station reported a few months before that a disabled man was ”terrorized” on a bus then punched in the face and knocked out.
Just months ago, an Iraq war veteran in a suburb of Seattle was riding a bus when he confronted several black passengers who were using foul language – including the “N” word.
They attacked him. The Marine veteran fought back and drove them off the bus. The incident was captured on video. The shaken suspects were last seen quickly leaving the bus. No arrests were made.
Last summer, aspiring rapper Ondrell Harding beat a man to death in the man’s home. At least five people saw it: the victim’s wife and preteen son and a few of Harding’s friends.
The district attorney did not file charges because he was unable to determine who started the altercation.
Four months later, Harding and five of his friends beat up another man at a bus stop. They told police the single victim attacked them. This time, the district attorney filed charges and convicted him. Harding received a three-month sentence.
Kaegan Hamilton, a writer for the Seattle Weekly, knew Harding as the rapper called “Doe Boy.”
Far from repentant, Harding has bragged about his exploits in rap songs posted on his MySpace page.
“When you look me in my eyes you see a coldblooded killer,” he sings in one verse. Another track has the ominous title “I Will Kill a Man.”
Also, there were about 20 black people who participated – or stood by and did nothing – in a beating at the Seattle Metro Bus terminal – all under the gaze of one video camera and three security guards. The recording revealed a lot of kicking and shouting.
In yet another recent incident, at least three black men stood outside a Denny’s restaurant in May 2012. While one worked the video and the other narrated, the third broke into the restaurant after he was denied entrance, causing extensive damage in the process.
In another case just last year, lesbian community activist and artist Kayla Stone was assaulted by a crowd of black and Hispanic people who taunted her with anti-gay slurs. The following night, they beat her up.
Almost as sensational as the black mob beating up a pregnant teenager is the case of the Seattle teenager who last summer was assaulted and tortured for several hours because he was white and his attackers believed the victim’s ancestors were to blame for slavery.
The victim told KOMO news: “They started bringing up the past – like slavery – being like, white people did this,” Shane said.
The attackers stripped off McClellan’s belt and started whipping his back.
“They said, ‘This is for what your people did to our people.’ They were like whipping me with my belt, my studded belt,” Shane recounted.
“They’re like, ‘Aw, white boy, what are you doing? You can’t hang out this late. What are you doing around here?’ They’re like, ‘White boy has no belonging – being out here at 2 a.m.’”
Shane added, “They targeted me for being white, and they made it very clear that’s why they were assaulting me.”
The victim’s father said the attack was nothing short of hours of torture.
“Put a gun to the back of his head and told him if he said anything they were going to blow his head off while they sat there and burned him with cigarettes on the back of the neck,” he said.
Both were arrested, convicted and sentenced – one to seven years, the other to five years and nine months. One was black, and the other was Asian. They said they were sorry.
No report of racial violence and lawlessness in Seattle can be considered complete without a mention of the biggest and nastiest bit of racial business in the history of that town. It’s an event that echoes today: the Seattle Mardi Gras Riot of 2001, where, for three-and-half hours, tens of thousands of people watched helplessly, and police stood by quietly as a race riot broke out.
The horrific riot became the subject of a Wikipedia page:
There were reports of widespread brawling, vandalism, and weapons being brandished. Damage to local businesses exceeded $100,000.
Much of the violence was perpetrated by black men against white revelers, and about 70 people were reported injured. Several women were sexually assaulted. One person, Kris Kime, died of injuries sustained during an attempt to assist a woman being brutalized.
For the millions who saw the photos or video, those images burned into the retina: gangs of feral youth beating, kicking, and pummeling male and female victims.
In almost all of the violent images of that night on TV and in the daily news- papers, the attackers were black and the victims were white. Thanks to our local media, this is the idea of the 2001 Mardi Gras riots that most people carry with them. The poster victim of Fat Tuesday, Kris Kime, was also white, and police now say the suspects in his murder are black. The fallout from all this is that many people assume the attacks were racially motivated.
Whatever the “fallout,” the one person convicted of murder that night, Jerell Thomas, served eight years before getting out on a technicality. Within a few months, he was back in prison for assaulting his girlfriend.
Today, people make videos of the site, which includes a memorial plaque.
For all the visible violence in Seattle, city officials are adamant that their town is safe.
Just look at the statistics, they argue.
That didn’t make sense to Nihan Thai, who was recently robbed and assaulted.
He soon discovered that nearly everyone else in his neighborhood had been attacked as well.
Earlier this year, he talked to KING-TV about the crime. He was walking home from the light rail station, he recalled: “I was literally ten steps away from the house. And I felt a hit on my right face and another hit on the back of my neck and on my lower back, and so as I was falling forward I felt hands grabbing my jacket and my bag.”
Two months later, not far from where Thai was attacked, another man was grabbed from behind, robbed and beaten. His name was Danny Vega, and he died.
Thai, like Vega, is Asian and openly gay. Before he died, Vega told police “he’d been attacked by three African-American males, all around 18 years of age,” according to the Post-Intelligencer. It was the 10th such attack in that area in two months, all near the corner of Martin Luther King Way and Othello Street.
All of the suspects in all of the crimes are black.
Police released a video of three black men who are “persons of interest.”
KING-TV reported:
“Thai started visiting his neighbors, they had a lot to say, and soon he realized he was doing his own crime survey. Thai knocked on 49 doors. Thirty-two people were home. How many of them had been victims of a crime since moving to the neighborhood? All but three.
Many victims told Thai they’d never reported the crimes to police.
“It happens to them so often that after two or three times they stopped reporting because they didn’t see any progress,” said Thai.
Thai’s survey was unscientific, but it did cause residents to raise the question of whether crime is going unreported in the south end.
Vega’s neighbors had a meeting soon after his death to discuss “this violence and how do we actually get to the root of it,” said Connie Burk of the Northwest Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of Abuse to KCPQ-TV. “And how do we actually change the conditions that allow this happen.”

 It has been all too often that attacks are covered up in attempts to deny the reality of the crimes that have become so prevalent under the " politically correctness " of the police and judicial groups in our "new" society.   The "hide your head in the sand" mentality has never worked and never will.  Convincing the bureaucrats of this is another problem.  Too many closed minds.    by wp
