What a joke. Idiot Biden should be taking a nap.


Obama's Budget is $1.7 TRILLION in Deficit again. We need Trillions in Cuts but a BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT is actually more important for our future since scumbag pols like Obama will continue to dig the hole deeper unless prevented by the Constitution.

U.S. Postal Service reports $2.2 billion loss

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- The U.S. Postal Service continues to hemorrhage money, with a loss of $2.2 billion in the most recent quarter.

The national mail service said Tuesday that it expects to have a cash shortfall and reach its statutory borrowing limit by the time its fiscal year ends in September. That means the agency could be forced to default on some of its payments to the federal government.


Welcome to Obama's World of Debt Hurt.

Obama helps mexico with wildfire but refuses people he calls the "ENEMY" in Texas

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama will visit Texas on Tuesday, with stops in El Paso and a fundraiser in Austin, but he won't feel the love -- at least not from unhappy Republican lawmakers who see the administration's refusal to designate the wildfire-battered state a disaster area as the latest slap in the face to the very Republican Lone Star State.

'Burn a Bush’

Michelle Obama invites violent rapper Common to a poetry reading

First Lady Michelle Obama has scheduled a poetry evening for Wednesday, and she’s invited several poets, including a successful Chicago poet and rapper, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA “Common.” However, Lynn is quite controversial, in part because his poetry includes threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the “burn[ing]” of then-President George W. Bush.

Back in 2003, First Lady Laura Bush held a poetry evening, and she invited several poets to reprise the work of Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman. Although none of those poets had urged violence against a president, Bush canceled the event after left-of-center poets protested and threatened to disrupt the event.

Poverty Explodes To Record Highs Under Obama


1-in-7 Americans are now considered to be in poverty, according to a report from the AP, based on upcoming census figures.

2009, Obama's first year in office, saw a record jump in the poverty level from 13.2% to 15%. The poverty level is defined as living at $22,025 or below for a family of four.

Also under Obama, Child poverty has jumped from 19% to 20% and among the 18-64 demographic, the level jumped from 11.7% to 12.4%.

The problem for Obama is that the best argument he can make regarding the economy is that things might have been worse had he not done what he did. The reality though is that things are actually bad, as these numbers show.

CBO:$10 trillion jump in debt under Obama budget


NEW YORK ( CNNMoney.com )-- If President Obama's 2011 budget were put into effect as proposed, the U.S. federal government would add an estimated $9.8 trillion to the country's accrued debt over the next decade, according to a preliminary analysis from the Congressional Budget Office.

Of that amount, an estimated $5.6 trillion will be in interest alone.



IMPEACH!

The United States of Inequality

In 1915, a statistician at the University of Wisconsin named Willford I. King published The Wealth and Income of the People of the United States, the most comprehensive study of its kind to date.

King was somewhat troubled to find that the richest 1 percent possessed about 15 percent of the nation's income.(A more authoritative subsequent calculation puts the figure slightly higher, at about 18 percent.)

This was the era in which the accumulated wealth of America's richest families—the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, the Carnegies—helped prompt creation of the modern income tax, lest disparities in wealth turn the United States into a European-style aristocracy. The socialist movement was at its historic peak, a wave of anarchist bombings was terrorizing the nation's industrialists, and President Woodrow Wilson's attorney general, Alexander Palmer, would soon stage brutal raids on radicals of every stripe. In American history, there has never been a time when class warfare seemed more imminent.

That was when the richest 1 percent accounted for 18 percent of the nation's income. Today, the richest 1 percent account for 24 percent of the nation's income.
