    here in the real world if you do nothing at your job you get fired. so tell me why our president, most all of our congressmen and senators still have jobs?

    • OPG says:

      All these folks still have jobs and cushy pensions because Americans will not be inconvenienced by things such as protesting and demanding the ousters of these pigs. One would think we’d have outrage galore with all the scandals coming out of DC but, alas, apathy and laziness of Americans wins…must be the fluoride in the water.

      • MKH says:

        The reality is, most Americans are too consumed with Iphones, Ipads, reality tv, sports, movie stars and race, thanks to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Not to mention that as long as Americans continue to get the free handouts, they have no reason to protest. Only until the collapse happens and the freebies stop will America wake up, by then it will have been too late.

    Please explain to me why Social Security is constantly referred to as “an entitlement”. If that is so why are we paying for this entitlement with taxes out of our paychecks. Had the government kept their greedy paws out of the fund it would no longer be considered an “entitlement”. I would love to understnad this as it makes me so angry every time I read this. I am 81 years old and had hoped SS would supliment my income my days out. Looks like that is not going to happen. Would love to have all those taxes and put it into an investment program instead. Government at work, and not for the little people.

    • Val says:

      If you took all the $ you contributed to SS, it comes nowhere near the amount most people would receive in monthly allotments. And that included any $ it might have made from being ‘invested’. The average person gets back all the money they contributed to SS within the first several years. So, the rest of the money one receives is, therefore, an entitlement.

      I know SS will not be there for me and I truly wish there was a way to not pay in to it. Let me put it where I can control it! It’s MY money!!

  3. Allen Nielsen says:

    The Federal Reserve is printing $85 billion per month out of thin air. They then purchase the debt of the United States of
    America with this phony money. They therefore will end up owning our country having paid nothing of value for it.

    • Korvet says:

      Might I suggest term limits for one and impeachment for the other problem, and that might well take care of the entire problem.

  4. redy2die says:

    I keep seeing theses videos of the country s total collapse and how where going to end up like Cypress. Our money will be taken by the Goverment and our bank accounts will be unaccesable, no food, power, water , riots. I’m disabled and on SSDI and Medicare. I will not suffer as much as I’m suffering now. Would be better dead than slowlly die.

  5. Hishoney says:

    I am really tired of hearing that Social Security and Medicare are entitlement programs. I worked for 45 years and what they took out of my paycheck for these “entitlements” could have meant that I now lived in a very large house without any worry of paying my bills, let alone my doctor bills. Medicaid is an entitlement program. Most of those folks have never worked, or never given into any program what they take out. Stop coming down on us for what this government has done to us!

    • Dr. Trudy says:

      I sympathize with you, Don. It is terrible what so many US citizens go through. I don’t live in the USA, but I keep well updated with what is going on.
      So many horrible errors, misdirections, poor judgements and lies from the government side to their own people. This is unacceptable, especially to those who have worked so many years and paid their dues.
      It won’t take long or the USA will fall flat on its face and next be ready for the islam to take over…. Watch and Pray, I say.

  9. HITPICK says:

    ITS TIME THE GOVERNMENT STOPS PAYING OUT TO THE FORGRINE COUNTRIES AND ONCE THINK ABOUT THE OWN PEOPLE. THEY KEEP SPENDING MORE AND MORE AND THEY WON’T STOP. AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PAY FOR THIS, I’M VERY TIRED OF THIS AND THE GOVERNMENT WILL SURELY COME OUT OF THIS LIKE A ROSE ON THRONE AND THEY WILL NEVER GET ANY MONEY FROM ME, BECAUSE I DON’T GOT ANY. I’M ALSO DISABLED AND I;M TIRED OF ALL THIS HAPPENING,. BUT NEW WHAN THEY WOULDN’T GET THE ACONOMY BACKUP AND RUNNING INSTEAD OF ALL THIS CRAP ABOUT THE XL PIPELINE, THIS WILL NOT HELP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IT WILL JUST KILL MORE WATER AND LAN AND MAKE THINGA WORSE. PEOPLE BETTER START COMING TOGETHER AS ONE. AND STICK BY EACH OTHER RIGHT NOW, WE GOT TO SAVE OURSELFS, SO WE AREN’T BLOWN OUT IN THE STREETS, I COULDNt MAKE IT, WITH MY DISABLITIY. THIS ISN’T FAIR, AND I HAVE MY OLDER MOTHER WHPO WILL BE 90 YEARS,

  10. James says:

    all CAPS???? are you a 12 year old?

  11. Philip Dennany says:

    End the US wars of terror and aggression and have a real investigation into what really happened on 9-11 and prosecute the very real treasonous crimes that wrongly justified the US wars of genocide. We can get back only if we require our government cleanup.

  12. FUTURE RISE says:

    We all learnt, We all know, We all see this coming, whichever scenario it is or will be, Question is what we can do personally for ourselves, our family, our community and others around us??? Negativity is all around us, Fear is running wild, where should we run to, head to?? Information, sharing, predicting, role plays, helping each other is very crucial now….so let’s keep doing this. Alert ourselves, Alert Everyone but also, let’s look for a silver lining in all this, something which will help us, now and in the future. We are the last ones amongst the Machines, Survival, CommunitySurvival

  13. Ed from Las Vegas says:

    Yes I do agree with your opinion and the Fact is that the State of the Union today is a Sorry A… state of the Union the Fat LAZY A… politicians they become RICHER while taking care of their buddies and they Cut Down already the Cost of Living Increase with the “new chained CPI’ and are thinking to cut down more our Social Security Checks but for them they JUST GOT A BIG RAISE while the Rest of Middle Class America are barely making it .. time to FIRE all those Crooks politicians that are for Reup..

  14. What a Joke says:

    YOU have no solution! You repeat the same tired cliches about a population turned into welfare kings and queens, about governments offering a decent wage as a check on worker exploitation, etc. Nowhere do you mention that about $12 trillion of that debt was acquired buying Wall Street’s ‘toxic waste’ and most of the rest fighting its wars. Nowhere do you mention that the biggest reason for the unemployment is because peoples’ jobs have been sent out of the country so investors and corporate CEOs can keep racking up their paper capital gains? (Where they going to spend all that money, huh, when the Chinese say ‘we have enough of your debt, thanks. If you ever learn how to make something we need, something we don’t already know how to make for ourselves thanks to all those factories and skills you sent us, give us a call’.)

    Enough of your drivel! Sign me out!

  15. Dave says:

    Interesting, that, as we are ready to descend into a nation of unbelievable poverty and anarchy, some people are still thinking that 9-11 was caused by our own government and not the hateful terrorists from abroad. I guess the recent Boston bombings were as well? You can’t have it both ways. Step back, lose your biases and prejudices, and take a look at what is going on around you.

  16. Genetta Ameijide says:

    It’s time to impeach and remove from office the president and the vice-president; and throw H. Clinton out of office. Since they “do not know” what is going on in the government and what the people under them are doing, then they are unqualified to hold office, Get rid of them and others who “don’t know”, and are under suspicion of wrong-doing themselves. I’m tired (and have been) of a government that does not serve the people of the USA, but only want power to do as they please and to use their offices to “get rich” at the expense of the people. Expense is defined as “a drain on one’s finances.” Throw them out as an example to others seeking a government office for personal gain.

    • Troy says:

      And the person(s) before Obama were in on the game and the person after Obama will be in on the game. The system has been broken (a long time ago) by a small group of people behind the curtain throughout the history of this country. Get ride of those who are rigging the game now and change the system so their kind doesn’t get back into power and you will have a just system.

  17. Trish says:

    What we don’t know can hurt us: Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luk 21:36 Bible prophecies

  18. necole says:

    When i was younger our neighbor had told my sister and i .. We would end up having another Depression.. Can believe it .. the fact remains people looking for work.. Obama wants to support over 11 million illegals and yet us as taxpayers are supporting them !! We have the technology and SUV’s people are driving around today that they didnt have back then.. So yes i can see this happening as scary as this article may sound.. With politicans spending and giving away money out of thin air..

  19. shane says:

    If we don’t rise up and take out our now communist government,and replace it with our constitutional government that our forefathers intended for us then we are doomed.WAKE UP PEOPLE,it’s time to take a stand against this tyrant of a government.

  20. tax payer says:

    It is time we as citizens , workers and taxpayers were heard . I mean really heard. We are tired of the socialites in Washington running this country in the ground. If these people (if you can really call them people) like Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton ,Barack Hussain Oboma , and others who are living so high on the HOG that a flee could not reach, if they had to live on the same income that most Senior citizens live on and had the same health care benefits , they would get off their lazy good for nothing behinds and get these problems in this free country fixed. Because if they don’t fix this economy , I’m afraid we will not be a free country much longer. I pray the government officials start to listen to the decent honest hard working citizens of this country .

  21. Genetta Ameijide says:

    I am 70 years old. I started working when I was 12 years old when I started woeking and paying taxes. I am disabled. If I could live without help from the government, I would. It makes me angry to hear how the elected people (senators and representatives) are making hugh salaries–much more than our soldiers). Our soldiers are the ones protecting our country and our elected reps. are stealing it. Make the reps make as much money as our soldiers, and take away their privileges,( traveling to other countries for example). Then just maybe they would really start doing what they were elected for—to work for the people who elected them.

  22. Rory says:

    I just want to point out a few things about the table in the article. Before we had things like Social Security, Medicare, etc. we had as a bad if not worse of a poverty problem especially among senior citizens. Yes, we may have the highest corporate tax rate in the world on paper but that is simple and misleading statement. Many of our large corporations because of offshore accounts and loopholes in reality only pay federal income taxes of 10% or less. Sometimes even zero. It’s the small and medium sized businesses that face the 20 and 30% rates. They are the ones who should get on the government and make their big brothers pay their share.

  23. Well folks Ive heard them all over and over again,like Fox news but NO ONE HAS COME UP WITH THE SOLUTION. Here’s mine, AARP I know they helped put that thing in office that is destroying our country,but about 38 MILLION members get on them,almost a 3rd of our USA population,what kind of a VOTE that would be coupled with some TEA Party people and a hand full or Republicans if any left,might be enough to get that man out and his BACK UP BOYS, IRS,Attny Gen,Treasurer,etc. I know its a long shot but we must try,just get on the Seniors about there Soc.Sec,Medicare etc.and AARP is doing nothing about saving this for them,they MIGHT WAKE UP !! Ginrich said it best,CLEAN OUT WASHINGTON,the whole bunch,start NEW we might make.Its a long shot but who wants to learn Chinese ??

  26. Tom Cleary says:

    The state of the world , is the hope of the world. Sad but true. There is a strangeness in human behaviour, that seems to preclude the bulk of humanity of reacting in a truly positive manner to information only.
    Only react to bloody action. Now the snakes are out of the bag, The Fed,
    Is being exposed, for what it is. Take a warning, bone up , on the Feds . Be warned, as there is lots of action poised.
    It’s not too late! It’s a question of will.

    This is so true. It is sad that so few realize how bad of a situation we’re in. Even sadder how ignorant politicians are. Andrew Jackson wasn’t the best president in many ways, but there is one quality in him I will always commend: He ended the first central bank we have. If only there was a president who could end the second….
