Well obummer at it again. Now he's saying he could've been Trayvon Martin. He's trying to start a civil war, and hopefully it won't happen. He's also trying to divide the country by race. Saturday will be a day of violence across the US. Mark my words. This prick won't be happy until he is king.

It's just a dream that everyone of every race would realize when they are being played for suckers. The piece of garbage in the White House needs to be dragged out for a public flogging and then thrown out of this country.

Cities going belly up is nothing new. After the 2008 debacle, one would have suspected more than what is actually occurring presently. Well the total damage has yet to fully materialize. Detroit, as far as I view it, was a “given” for bankruptcy. They were on the brink for years including during the years of good growth. As for California which cities are you referring to? This will be interesting to watch and see which of them rebounds to a secured economy within a particular timeline.

Remember when republicans were so fearful of the economy’s state affaire? Well they still are !
Right Wing cries too fast, too fast, too fast, slooooow down..“It Is All About The Economy Stupid”
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid. Republicans “Chicken Little” is dying. Serving red herrings will return to the menu for their herd.

Insurance Premiums’ come a tumbling down. Individuals and families applying for 2014 Health Care are discovering their premiums at a 50% discount or more. N.Y. State as one example, of many states, has already approved the discounted premium cost. Citing an example of an individual that presently pays $1,000 per month will be able to obtain that same insurance coverage at a premium of $308 per month.
Obama’s administration followed up with their annalist of the CBO’s numbers, a bipartisan agency known as the Congressional Budget Office, did not take into account the sliding scale that is offered by the Health Care Bill. Adding a 10% to 18% greater premium savings to the individually insured, which will include additional discounts for incomes as high as $94,200 for a family of four.
Recent CBO report failure to project the accelerating decreasing debt provides credit to the Obama’s administrations Health Care cost projections. accuracy.
“Individual Mandates” written into the Health Care Bill is stimulating the insurance companies into a frenzy of competition. Factoring in, a wave of newly uninsured youthful clients.
Immediate reaction from the republicans extremist within their House is pushing their Bill to remove “Individual Mandate” from the Health Care Bill as it presently exist.
Fortunately democrats hold the Senate and Executive Branch and success of the republican extremist is not likely.
Individual Mandate’s value was demonstrated by N.Y. State. N.Y. State required that all applications for the 2014 Health Care Insurance be accepted. However they excluded the Individual Mandate clause. Needless to say the results were that the frail and sick of health applied as the youthful healthy citizens declined.
N.Y.’s experiment illuminates the value of the “Individual Mandate” clause. Republican’s House extremist seeking to sabotage, our Health Care, should be duly noted for what actions will be required by the voters of 2014.

This shows how out of touch Washington is, Thomasville Furniture just laid off another round of people. Surveys show that China is going to take the top spot in the world economies.

Thank you for that info. These two will make good subjects for study. Observes the subtle differences. Excerpts from the “Record” STOCKTON - If there's a right way to go about municipal bankruptcy, Stockton may prove to be the poster child. If there's a wrong way, look to San Bernardino.
Now that Detroit has taken the infamous title of the largest city filing bankruptcy in history. How will they handle their bankruptcy? Given that California’s cities that are flirting with bankruptcy are small cities to the least no more than a village.
Other problems
Vallejo, Stockton and San Bernardino aren't the only California cities in financial crisis.
• Atwater (Pop. 28,626): Bankruptcy avoided with union concessions last year.
• Azusa (Pop. 46,678): A downgraded credit rating by Moody's and Standard & Poor's.
• Compton (Pop. 97,156): Deficit hit $40 million in 2011. The city no longer gets a bond rating.
• Fresno (Pop. 501,362): Despite cutting work force by 25 percent, the city has a $16 million deficit this year.
• Hercules (Pop. 24,455): City's credit rating fell seven grades in 2012.
• Mammoth Lakes (Pop. 8,296): Resort city filed for bankruptcy last year, then withdrew its petition.
• Monrovia (Pop. 36,857): S&P cited "substantially weakened general fund."
• Oakland (Pop. 395,817): High crime, low revenue and $19 million shortfall in coming fiscal year.
• San Jose (Pop. 967,487): Eleven straight general fund deficits and "long-term structural" budget problems.
• Vernon (Pop. 113): California's smallest city was subject of a scathing state audit over bad investments.
Source: Record wire services
On April 1, a federal judge accepted the city's Chapter 9 application - giving Stockton, population 296,000, the label of being the nation's largest city to ever enter bankruptcy. But, indirectly, the court also stated that the city had done what it could to avoid the designation.
San Bernardino struggled for months with defining its fiscal status, the city council was split over what course to take, it skipped AB506, a recall of the city's elected leadership is under way and dissolution as a municipality has been discussed.
The Southern California community, population 210,000, appears to have a long wait before its bankruptcy eligibility is determined.
Stockton and San Bernardino have been described as test cases for other cities in California and the nation. At least 10 other communities have been identified as facing serious financial stress, much of it linked to the economic recession and the companion foreclosure crisis.
Stockton on last report is on the mend and returning to stability.
Article supports what I was saying. The full damage from the aftershocks of the Great Recession are now materializing. Does not say anything about pensions as no doubt they would be one of the factors as there are many other factors that contributed to the negative issues of their economics.
