The Economy is Getting Better? Don’t Believe It, It’s Time To Prepare!

Don’t believe the elite media and the Obama Administration’s claims that the economy is getting better, it isn’t. The employment rate today is about 64%, compared to the official unemployment figures slightly under 9%. Bush was roundly criticized when only 400,000 jobs were added per month, today Obama is celebrated when a couple hundred thousand are added, not near enough to keep pace with those entering the job market for the first time. Gas prices are approaching an all-time high again, and Obama claims no silver bullet can change that. The truth is that official policy can go a long way to getting us back to cheap energy, which this administration has fought and even tossed up road-blocks every step of the way. Housing is still in the dumps, and the Dems are still taking steps to keep people in homes that they couldn’t afford to be in to begin with, also due to Democratic policy.

Here is a great listing of indicators which clearly show that things are only getting worse, not better. The silver bullet for our economy will be to retire Obama next November.

If the economy is getting better, then why is the average duration of unemployment in this country close to an all-time record high?

US Foreign Aid to Countries Holding Billions in Treasury Securities?

Speaker Boehner has not yielded on increasing the national debt limit without corresponding spending cuts. He has agreed to meet Obama on the links on Sunday, we’ll see if anything gets worked out I guess. I hope it doesn’t. Anything that Obama agrees to will likely be bad for our country.

The larger issue here is that we are giving foreign aid to countries that are handling large chunks of our national debt. This list is simply astounding. An even larger issue is that we don’t have the extra funds to be tossing around willy-nilly anymore.
