Welcome To The Fall Of The Roman Empire, a.k.a. The Banana Republic Of America

John Williams of Shadow Statistics is an excellent source of info when it comes to the real unemployment rate for The Banana Republic of America. The federal government’s bogus unemployment figures are a joke because they ignore big chunks of the BRA population. Taking those people into account, Signore Williams came up with 23.3% unemployment for the BRA for September. And when this mess inevitably deepens (how could it not?), that 23.3% will more than double.

“Our dollar is going down rapidly as we
speak.”—Ron Paul

“We are going to go into worse conditions than what we saw in 2008.”—Gerald Celente

“Egypt offers a window into the coming dystopia. The wars of survival will mark the final stage of human habitation of the planet. And if you want to know what they will look like, visit any city morgue in Cairo.”—Chris Hedges

“Our country’s vital signs are tanking—not just from the monetary area, but from a liberty standpoint as well. We are going down the
path that other failed governments and institutions have gone down historically, and I don’t see it turning around.”—The Patriot Nurse


“When you offshore so many middle class, high-productivity, high-value-added jobs, you are essentially giving away your own gross domestic product. You’re giving away your tax base, and you are also giving away the consumer economy because people no longer have the incomes to support a consumption-driven economy. At the same time, you are launching all these multi-trillion-dollar wars and have no way to finance them.”—Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Welcome to the fall of the Roman Empire, a.k.a. The Banana Republic of America.

Time to end corporate welfare and make these capitalist pigs pay their fair share.

many of the families of fast-food workers must rely on taxpayer-funded safety net programs to make ends meet.”

The cost of providing this public assistance: nearly $7 billion a year.

Meanwhile, adds the National Employment Law Project in Super-Sizing Public Costs,
America’s seven largest fast food empires — McDonald’s, Burger King,
Wendy’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Sonic, Domino’s, and Yum! Brands (Pizza Hut,
KFC, Taco Bell) — last year tallied $7.4 billion in profits.

The seven CEOs who orchestrated this impressive bottom line together collected $52.7 million in 2012 executive compensation.

Fast food execs, in effect, have essentially built a business that pivots on public subsidies. These execs don’t pay their workers a living wage. They rely instead on taxpayers to carry the load. And they rely on a myth — that fast food operates as a low-margin, low-profit industry — to hide what’s going on.

    I’m ready to get this thing started…I understand people like Doug Hagmann say another day is more time…..but when the gov. didn’t pass a budjet and raised the debt ceiling, Mr/. Hagmann said. “we are just kicking the can down the road.” Well the same is true, get it started so we can end it, the longer we drag it out the more suffering there will be…..Though, being a Chrisitan, and watching my entire life…I must say now sure seems close to the end times…but that my opinion….if you don’t like it, I don’t care…I AM AN AMERICAN AND HAVE FREE SPEECH

    Corporations are the problem? No government is the problem with it’s draconian regulations, taxes and mandates that prohibit corporations being able to be productive and innovative in the US. So it no wonder they relocate overseas. But now many corps and businesses are getting around the worker issues through automation. Machines work 24/7, don’t require healthcare nor unemployment and consume nothing more then maintenance and electricity cost along with some petro products in the form of lubricants. Thank’s to the progressives many jobs if not relocating overseas are cumming back through automation, no workers need apply except some maintainers and technicians.

    They say it will create other jobs but I really don’t see them appearing. And capital that could be applied to creating other jobs are instead going into the pockets of the pig bureaucrats who end their carries well heeled from insider trader and manipulation along with pensions funded by the squeezed taxpayers.

    Corporations, big financials and bureaucrats dance hand in hand in the jig called K-Street cronyism.
