So Obama wants to violate the Antideficiency Act with a payday loan??

"Sources inside Goldman Sachs have leaked an email indicating that President Obama has had secret meetings with Goldman and Co,“in order to arrange a new debt ceiling, or more accordingly a new line of credit.”

The email goes on to say that this would be “almost like a payday loan.”"

"30 Statistics About Americans Under The Age Of 30"


#1 The labor force participation rate for men in the 18 to 24 year old age bracket is at an all-time low.

#2 The ratio of what men in the 18 to 29 year old age bracket are earning compared to the general population is at an all-time low.

#3 Only about a third of all adults in their early 20s are working a full-time job.

#4 For the entire 18 to 29 year old age bracket, the full-time employment rate continues to fall. In June 2012, 47 percent of that entire age group had a full-time job. One year later, in June 2013, only43.6 percent of that entire age group had a full-time job.

#5 Back in the year 2000, 80 percent of men in their late 20s had a full-time job. Today, only 65 percent do.

#6 In 2007, the unemployment rate for the 20 to 29 year old age bracket was about 6.5 percent. Today, the unemployment rate for that same age group is about 13 percent.

#7 American families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.

#8 During 2012, young adults under the age of 30 accounted for 23 percent of the workforce, but they accounted for a whopping 36 percent of the unemployed.

#9 During 2011, 53 percent of all Americans with a bachelor’s degree under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.

#10 At this point about half of all recent college graduates are working jobs that do not even require a college degree.

#11 The number of Americans in the 16 to 29 year old age bracket with a job declined by 18 percent between 2000 and 2010.

#12 According to one survey, 82 percent of all Americans believe that it is harder for young adults to find jobs today than it was for their parents to find jobs.

#13 Incomes for U.S. households led by someone between the ages of 25 and 34 have fallen by about 12 percent after you adjust for inflation since the year 2000.

#14 In 1984, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older was 10 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger. Today, the median net worth of households led by someone 65 or older is 47 times larger than the median net worth of households led by someone 35 or younger.

#15 In 2011, SAT scores for young men were the worst that they had been in 40 years.

#16 Incredibly, approximately two-thirds of all college students graduate with student loans.

"#17 According to the Federal Reserve, the total amount of student loan debt has risen by 275 percent since 2003.

#18 In America today, 40 percent of all households that are led by someone under the age of 35 are paying off student loan debt. Back in 1989, that figure was below 20 percent.

#19 The total amount of student loan debt in the United States now exceeds the total amount of credit card debt in the United States.

#20 According to the U.S. Department of Education, 11 percent of all student loans are at least 90 days delinquent.

#21 The student loan default rate in the United States has nearly doubled since 2005.

#22 One survey found that 70% of all college graduates wish that they had spent more time preparing for the “real world” while they were still in college.

#23 In the United States today, there are more than 100,000 janitors that have college degrees.

#24 In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresseshave college degrees.

#25 Today, an all-time low 44.2 percent of all Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 are married.

#26 According to the Pew Research Center, 57 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24 year old age bracket lived with their parents during 2012.

#27 One poll discovered that 29 percent of all Americans in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket are still living with their parents.

#28 Young men are nearly twice as likely to live with their parents as young women the same age are.

#29 Overall, approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents according to Time Magazine.


#30 Young Americans are becoming increasingly frustrated that previous generations have saddled them with a nearly 17 trillion dollarnational debt that they are expected to make payments on for the rest of their lives.

And this trend is not just limited to the United States. As I have written about frequently, unemployment rates for young adults throughout Europe have been soaring to unprecedented heights. For example, the unemployment rate for those under the age of 25 in Italy has now reached 40.1 percent."

"

Youth unemployment rates in these countries are upwards of 40% to nearly 70%. The most recent figures published by the Italian government show yet another record high in youth unemployment.

An entire generation is now coming of age without being able to leave the nest or have any prospect of earning a decent wage in their home country.

This underscores an important point that I’ve been writing about for a long time: young people in particular get the sharp end of the stick.

They’re the last to be hired, the first to be fired, the first to be sent off to fight and die in foreign lands, and the first to have their benefits cut.

And if they’re ever lucky enough to find meaningful employment, they can count on working their entire lives to pay down the debts of previous generations through higher and higher taxes.

But when it comes time to collect… finally… those benefits won’t be there for them."

Applying for Obamacare......

"She asked for personal and financial information, as well as employer information, and promised the data would be kept private and secure, as mandated by law.

She asked for date of birth, a Social Security number and information on whether the applicant planned to file taxes, would be filing jointly, had dependents or was being claimed as a dependent.

The applicant was told he would be sent instructions in about a week on how to purchase health insurance, with no obligation to buy.

The woman then asked for his name, address and phone number a second time. She also asked if the applicant would like to designate someone to assist him in the future, such as a lawyer or family member. He declined.

She then asked for his name, address and phone number for a third time.

The woman then apologized, explaining that the form she was following kept asking her for the information. As the session progressed, she would often stop to explain she was filling out the same information again, but retrieving it from other parts of the form. She was apologetic and courteous.

Did he need health insurance? No. Did he want to see if he could get a better deal? Yes.

Was he under emotional or physical pain that caused daily pain? Was he a U.S. citizen? Did he want help paying his last three months of medical bills? Did he have children? Was he a student? Was he a foster child? Was he once a foster child? Was he Hispanic? Or another minority?

What was his employer’s name and address? What was his salary? Was it his only job? Had he changed jobs in the past year? Did he have other means of income? Did he have any payroll deductions? Was a change in income expected? Did he need to cover other people?

Was he an American Indian? Was anyone in his family covered by a government health plan, such as Medicare? Did he have health insurance? What was the name of the provider? Was it a Cobra plan? Was it a retiree plan?

Would he give her permission to sign for him under penalty of law?

Then she read a lengthy disclaimer.

The applicant was told his eligibility would be renewed automatically. He was also told that if he did not agree with the estimate he could appeal.

Once again, she asked for authorization to sign the application.

The woman then asked for the applicant’s employer ID number. He asked if that meant the number the IRS uses on tax forms. She did not know. He gave her the contact info for someone who might know the number, and she was satisfied with that. She then asked for the employer’s address, again.

Was he eligible for coverage provided by his employer?

Did the employer provide a plan that meets the “minimum value standard”?

He asked her what that meant. She did not know. So they skipped the question.

Did he smoke?

What changes was his employer planning to make to the employee health insurance?

Was his employer planning to stop providing health insurance?

Was his employer planning on changing the premium?

What did the employee currently pay for his health care?

She asked again if the applicant was an American Indian or Alaskan Native.

The woman asked again if the applicant would like to designate someone to help him apply for health insurance and act as his authorized representative.

At the 55-minute mark, the woman on the phone said she thought they were almost finished.

The applicant asked her if he would find out today what his estimated costs would be for the four plans.

The woman congratulated him on finishing the application process. It would now be reviewed.

She told him they are processing a lot of applications, and “don’t worry” if it takes a while.

So the applicant asked when he might expect to hear from them.

She said the application would be processed, and he should hear from them – by Jan. 1, 2014."

So much for having insurance in effect on Jan 1, 2014...

Hey Dave, got to admit that list had some interesting facts- the one that really caught my eye was that 60% of young people voted for Obama. What do you make of that? Aren't young people supposed to be more educated than ever today. Something else, don't young people generally follow their parents as far as party preference(at least initially). Just curious, how would you explain that?

There is at least one liberal on The Five. I can't think of his name. He is pretty well known, I think. I have definitely seen liberals on Fox during debates on various subjects. I don't watch Fox much, but I have definitely seen liberals on there. Oh! Juan Williams is on there. I don't know which show. I get my TV news on ABC. I don't know why. It's incredibly left wing. Just habit, I guess.

Those young people who attend college are listening to left wing professors spew their liberal agenda. In the beginning, they are too worried about their grades to challenge them. By the end of their second year, the students are pretty well brainwashed. The youth of today don't know any different. This will be all they know. That is why it will be relatively easy to make them socialists. I was pretty liberal when I graduated college. Thank goodness my parents got me straightened back out. Whew! Dodged THAT bullet.

I usually watch CBS. But there is not much diff in ABC or NBC, either. The thing that bugs me most about fox is that, even while broadcasting a news story they will throw in an obvious right wing viewpoint. Now, I am not so naïve to believe that other networks may not have their own agenda- but at least they don't make it so obvious!
