They know this :http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-15/guest-post-brewing-generational-conflict
They are borrowing money that is supposed to be loaned to small business and investing it in stocks, which in turn drives up stock prices. This is a QE driven economy and these stories start to circulate every time there is even a rumor of the fed turning off the faucet. The worst thing is that all that money that was on the sidelines is still and always has been on the sidelines since the last "soft landing." (crash) Most of the 7500 points in the Dow are backed by money printed by the fed for stimulus. I can't understand why people can't understand that the simplest possible explanation is the explanation. To all the close to or already retired folks out there, get it while you can. I think back to the mid 90's when Clinton robbed the SSI fund to balance the budget and create his so called (surplus). He did that so he could "fix" SSI for good. Well I keep thinking back to then trying to remember all the sacrifices made by 40 somethings at the time to sure up "their Social Security." The kind of sacrifices that justified the average person taking 300,000 in benefits in exchange for the 100,000 they may have contributed. The problem is that they voted for the politicians that made the promises that can't be kept. I don't think anyone should be left on the street or left to go hungry, but I don't think that I should pay for a guys heart pills when he just spent 40k on a new knee so that he can keep driving his cigarette boat at the age of 78.  Medicare and Obamacare will bring an end to the USA because of debt. If we had never started Medicare, we would not have Obamacare. If you went out and refinanced your house the day you retired so that you could buy a yacht that cost 2k a month to dock, that's fine it's your money, but don't whine that you can't afford your prescriptions and need a f**kin doughnut hole fixed. Put a hole in that yachts hull. When the whole thing comes unwound because politicians can't seem to be honest, it will be average hard working people that will go to work and use common sense financial plans (like getting your house paid for and not treating it like a slush fund) that will right the course. What made America great was that every generation wanted to leave the next generation a little wealthier. Parents wanted to leave something for their kids... Well responsible people did. Politicians  seized the chance to take credit and decide how that earned wealth is passed along. Now that the peace, ,anti establishment generation is in charge with 80% of the wealth in the country, they Loooooooooooooooooooove their government now. In fact they want the MAN in everything. The most successful generation in the history of the world (pre boomers) left their pot smokin hippy socialist the keys to the kingdom and they couldn't be less interested in passing it on, In fact, they want to keep their party going, give a bunch of it to little Hodgee in Africa so they can feel good about themselves and dip into my kid's because they owe them for leaving them such an awesome school system that we don't use.

The dollar – and the USA – is toast

Obama has done it. He has brought America down. It only took him just over four years. The Republicans could have stopped him. They didn’t.

How did the nihilistic left succeed in destroying America? Simple. They learned just a little of the capitalism they hate, and they drove your nation into outright bankruptcy.

Why America is Special

 

click to enlarge

  Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to nothing to do with this world, yet then say that the USA one of the lost nations of Israel? In addition, that if we do not obey God, our nation will be destroyed by him? Which scenario is it, God involved or Satan’s world?"

 

I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (One of the divine Godhead that became Jesus) personally walked with them, talked with them and instructed them how to live in a godly lifestyle and have life forever. God had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent has those same plans with their children.

Then sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s Laws. Remember there is only one biblical definition of sin. "Sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) Without the law, one cannot sin! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7) When Adam and Eve broke God’s laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." ( Rom 6:23) Therefore breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to mankind.

I leave the news alone ... too much "chaos and drama" most of the time ... and boring the rest of the time!!  At least, if I want to know/learn something worthwhile, I have the quietness of the Internet!

De-stress yourself: Swear off TV 'news'

I decided to come clean and admit that late last October I made the decision to get back on the TV wagon again right after the Nov. 6 election. It was the second time over the past three-plus decades that I made such a decision. During the Jimmy Carter era, I had also given my brain cells a chance to get sober by striking TV news from my life, cold turkey.

I credit Dr. Andrew Weil with both of my decisions. Weil said that if you refrain from turning on the television set for a week or two at a time, it will dramatically reduce your stress. Since I’ve had considerable firsthand experience trying it, I can assure you he was right.

My current abstinence includes the once last refuge of serious television journalism, Fox News. It’s very sad what has happened to Fox over the years. The network that started out as a genuine alternative to America’s socialist media is but a shadow of its former self.

Much of the airtime at Fox is now filled with boring or irrelevant shows, anchors who are careful not to rock the boat (you do remember Glenn Beck and Judge Napolitano, don’t you?), guests who religiously cling to establishment talking points and automaton contributors whose chief function is to act as sleeping aids for bleary-eyed viewers.

In a spirit of full disclosure, I feel obliged to admit that I’m not 100 percent on the wagon. I do still catch a few minutes of Fox here and there, but more often than not I go several days at a time without subjecting myself to any TV-brewed “news” at all.

GOT ABOUT AN HOUR TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY. IF THIS DOES NOT MAKE YOU MAD, YOU ARE NOT AN AMERICAN.

After America Collapses, What Comes Next?

By Bob Barney

    The following video is worth watching.  The Bible tells us plainly that the USA is going to collapse and as a people, we are going back into slavery. To understand this, we have to understand who we are in the Bible. The USA and England are the lost tribes of Joseph, one of the lost tribes of Israel. The name "Israel" is actually "owned" by Joseph. That name was given to his children by Jacob (Israel) himself. The Jewish people have no right to that name! They are the nation of Judea. That is what the Bible says. Every expert of the  Bible knows this.

God warned us that during the End Times, our nation, along with England, Canada, Australia and the nations of northern Europe would again become "slaves" of the Assyrians. Assyria is modern day Germany.  Also, in Revelation, God tells us that the end time beast government would be a revived Holy Roman Empire, led by the Church in Rome!
