Mexican President Congratulates Reconquista Stooge Gov. Moonbeam Brown




Politicians are a quirky bunch.  They say one thing; then do another.  Mexico’s president stood beside Gov. Moonbeam Brown and lectured the United States on justice for his citizens, our resident illegal aliens, and the need to be inclusive.  Mind you, he just kicked little Honduran Maria and her teddy bear’s ass out of southern Mexico.  I guess some animals are more equal than others.

President Pena Nieto then congratulated his libtard stooge on his complicity in the upcoming reconquista.  California is Mexico’s Crimean peninsula.  CNS News reported the following:

Pena Nieto was welcomed by Gov. Jerry Brown, who played up his immigration credentials in a speech that highlighted the close cultural and historical ties they share across borders.
"It wasn't very long ago that the governor of California was outlawing driver's licenses for people who were undocumented from Mexico," Brown said. "That's not the law anymore."
Brown signed a bill into law last year that will enable immigrants to get driver's licenses next year. He said he got the message after a visit to a Monterey artichoke field where the workers yelled "licencia, licencia."
During an upbeat speech embracing the ties between Mexico and California, Brown didn't entirely gloss over a relationship that has, at times, been fraught with tension and he referred to past ethnic problems.
California voters in 1994 passed Proposition 187 that sought to ban immigrants who are in the country illegally from access to social services including health care and education, though it was reversed by the courts.
Hispanics have now become a force to be reckoned with in California. They now make up the largest of any racial or ethnic group in the state, though their voter registration numbers still lag behind whites.


I’m sure California libtards will welcome illegal aliens at the polls, if it’s not happening already.    All that’s left is raising the Mexican flag over the state capitol building.











One out of Six French "Citizens" Support ISIS





France has huge Muslim diasporas.  There are places Westerners should not go.  What’s even more disturbing is one out of six French “citizens” support ISIS.  That is roughly 16% of the population.  That number is nothing to sneeze at.


The organization that conducted this poll is ICM Research, Palestinian Center for Public opinion.  So keep that in mind.

Mexico Doing a Job the Obama Administration Refuses to Do



Mexico is doing a job the Obama administration refuses to do.  They are deporting illegal aliens on their southern border.  Apparently, they have enough nannies, gardeners, and toilet bowl cleaners in their country.  Mexicans can ill afford competition in their homeland, or the United States. 

WASHINGTON — Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation.


Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year.


Those numbers stand in stark contrast to the deportation of minor immigrants from the United States: None of the more than 60,000 Central American minors detained this year have been deported.


According to a Department of Homeland Security spokesman, those minors — who are estimated to total as many as 90,000 by year’s end — must first make their way through the legal system, which has seen significant backlogs, because they qualify to apply for asylum status.



What, no thumb sucking libtards protesting the inhumanity of sending back poverty stricken, war ravaged urchins?  Is Mexico devoid of self-loathing citizens who can’t wipe their own ass?  That is unheard of in the United States.  No wonder they’re a third-world country.  They don’t have enough first-world assholes to undermine their sovereignty.  Maybe we should export some of our libtards down south to do the job Mexicans refuse to do.


Wal-Mart to Provide Low-Cost Primary Healthcare




Wal-Mart  is a godsend to the poor and middle class.  This company has become the one stop shop for affordable goods and services.  Come to find out, they’re offering primary healthcare in small markets where this service is needed.  And you wouldn’t believe the cost.


Walmart's stressing that it's designed its clinics to be customer-centric. The clinics are open about an hour longer than at competitors like MinuteClinic; at one of Walmart's Texas clinics—staffed by nurse practitioners in a partnership with QuadMed—the hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
And in line with its usual branding, Walmart's touted the low prices available in its clinics: $40 to get a walk-in check-up, and even lower costs for employees.
"For our associates and dependents on the health plan, you can come and see a provider in the Wal-Mart Care Clinic for $4. Four dollars!" Jennifer LaPerre, a company official, said last week.
"That is setting a new retail price in the health care industry," she added.


Wal-Mart needs to provide that service and price in Charlotte, NC!  I’m talking from personal experience.  Forbes Magazine  ranked the Queen City 6th most expensive in the country.  I do believe these vultures need a little competition.

What's Better, Germany's 1933 Enabling Act or U.S. 1946 Administrative Procedure Act?



The biggest threat to a republic is centralized power.  Washington D.C. has been on that quest since its inception.  The Supreme Court, under Marbury v. Madison, granted itself judicial review.  Nowhere in the Constitution do these powers exist.  They just took it and no one challenged them.  Gradually, the federal courts used precedent over principles to dictate policy and stomp on States’ self-determination.

If that’s not bad enough, Congress delegated its constitutionally mandated power to legislate.  The 1946 Administrative Procedure Act consolidated regulatory agencies under the executive branch.  This law granted unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats rule making and adjudicating powers.  Under an unprincipled and contemptuous president, such as Barack Obama, these agencies have been used to bypass the legislative process; not to mention violate the principles of separation of powers.

 Here is how President Obama has handled the regulation state during his tenure:

The analysis by the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS), an independent federal agency that monitors the government’s rule-making process, found that regulatory delays at OIRA spiked in 2012 as the administration put controversial rules on hold until after the election.
But the same can’t be said this time around with the congressional midterms approaching in November, observers say.
“I don’t think the Obama administration is willfully delaying regulations right now — at least not for the benefit of members of Congress running in November,” said Sam Batkins, regulatory director at the conservative American Action Forum.
OIRA is currently reviewing 24 rules and has already completed reviews of another 70 rules, putting the agency on pace to cycle through close to 125 rules by the end of the year.
Some say the tempo of regulations points to a schism between President Obama, who is focused on carving his legacy in Washington before his term expires in two years, and congressional Democrats, who are consumed with keeping control of the Senate. 
“There is certainly a cost from President Obama’s point of view to slowing down the amount of regulations,” said James Gattuso, who studies regulations at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “I don’t see any reason why he would want to do that.”
Shapiro, the former OIRA official, suggested President Obama has “less incentive” to protect Senate Democrats this time around than he had to protect himself during the 2012 campaign.

That’s because Obama doesn’t need Congress to push through his agenda.  He has federal bureaucracies to do his dirty work.
The 1946 Administrative Procedure Act was created to ensure a 4th branch of government didn’t exist.  But putting it under the executive branch ensures dictatorial powers.  I’m reminded of Germany’s Enabling Act of 1933.  Hitler praised this legislation:

Just before the vote, Hitler made a speech to the Reichstag in which he pledged to use restraint.

"The government will make use of these powers only insofar as they are essential for carrying out vitally necessary measures...The number of cases in which an internal necessity exists for having recourse to such a law is in itself a limited one." - Hitler told the Reichstag.

He also promised an end to unemployment and pledged to promote peace with France, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. But in order to do all this, Hitler said, he first needed the Enabling Act.

A two thirds majority was needed, since the law would actually alter the German constitution. Hitler needed 31 non-Nazi votes to pass it. He got those votes from the Center Party after making a false promise to restore some basic rights already taken away by decree.

However, one man arose amid the overwhelming might. Otto Wells, leader of the Social Democrats stood up and spoke quietly to Hitler.

"We German Social Democrats pledge ourselves solemnly in this historic hour to the principles of humanity and justice, of freedom and socialism. No enabling act can give you power to destroy ideas which are eternal and indestructible."

This enraged Hitler and he jumped up to respond.

"You are no longer needed! - The star of Germany will rise and yours will sink! Your death knell has sounded!"

The vote was taken - 441 for, only 84, the Social Democrats, against. The Nazis leapt to their feet clapping, stamping and shouting, then broke into the Nazi anthem, the Hörst Wessel song.

They achieved what Hitler had wanted for years - to tear down the German Democratic Republic legally and end democracy, thus paving the way for a complete Nazi takeover of Germany.


Let’s see, Germany's Enabling Act or our 1946 Administrative Procedure Act.  How does that song go?  Potato…potato…

Gov. Perry Indictment Funded by Soros





Nazi collaborator, George Soros, can’t seem to stop his thuggish ways.  He once fingered Hungarian Jews for property confiscation, now; he’s behind another fascist front group whose out to tarnish the reputation of Gov. Rick Perry.
In case anyone missed it, Gov. Perry asked a public official to remove herself from an office that investigates political corruption.  Rosemary Lehmburg refused to resign her position after her drunken driving conviction.  She was also abusive to police officers and made a spectacle of herself.  Any person with an ounce of integrity would have stepped aside.  But of course, she’s a democrat, and integrity isn’t a resume enhancer.
Governor Perry used his constitutional powers to veto funding for that office.  Then steps in the Soros funded, Texas for Public Justice, and another corrupted Austin jury pool hands down an indictment that carries a maximum 99 year prison sentence.  What a load of crap.
And do the mainstream media report who’s funding this charade?  Of course not, except Fox News:

According to a Media Research Center analysis, from the moment Perry was indicted on two flimsy counts by a Travis County, Texas grand jury on August 15 through the morning of August 20, the Big Three broadcast networks – ABC, CBS, and NBC – have run 24 stories totaling 38 minutes and 34 seconds across their morning and evening broadcasts.
 In all that coverage, not one single story mentioned that the group responsible for filing the complaint against Perry in June, Texans for Public Justice (TPJ), is part of a “progressive” coalition that has received $500,000 in funding from prolific left-wing billionaire George Soros

Did we expect anything different?

Texas Prospers Despite Washington D.C.




If it weren’t for Texas, the Obama administration would have nothing to brag about, if they have anything to brag about at all.  Heaven knows, the Anointed One’s economic philosophy is antagonistic to prosperity.  In his mind, the only good business is a government sanctioned business.
Take a look at the chart above.  Contrast Texas’ economic results compared to the rest of the country.  We should emulate the Lone Star States model.  They are prospering despite the idiotic policies of Washington D.C.
Governor Rick Perry outlined the factors that made Texas the envy of the country even during the height of the Great Recession.  Here is the video:

"Londoner" Rapper Suspected of Foley Beheading



U.S and British intelligence believe they know who the ISIS monster is who beheaded American journalist, James Foley.  The suspect is a 23 year old “Londoner,” Abdel Majed Bary.  Fox News reported the following:

U.S. intelligence officials are not commenting publicly on the reports, but a well-placed source told Fox News that Bary's Egyptian-born father was extradited from London to the United States in 2012 for his alleged connection to Usama bin Laden and the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa.
Bary traveled to Syria last year to fight with ISIS, the source said. 
The Sunday Times and Sunday People identified Bary as a member of a group of at least three British-born ISIS fighters known among former hostages as "The Beatles."
The Sunday Times reported that MI5 and MI6, Britain's two major intelligence agencies, had identified the man who did the brutal deed, though he had not been publicly identified.
A counterterrorism source told Fox News that the investigation was moving forward and slowly eliminating individuals of interest. The source also told Fox News that the FBI had opened a crisis file shortly after Foley was kidnapped in northern Syria in November 2012 that included signals intelligence and interviews with former hostages.


Without a doubt, the civilized world is going to have to take the fight to ISIS.  This time there can be no Gitmo.  We cannot warehouse evil at this grand scale.  These people will have to be dealt with on the battlefield.  Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening with the current U.S. president.

Homeland Security Advisor: America is an "Islamic Country"




And as we watch the Islamic horror show in the Middle East, we must remind ourselves that we have our own problems here in the U.S. courtesy of the Obama administration.  Homeland Security has been infiltrated with Islamists.  Mohamad Elibiary, one of Obama’s advisors, tweeted the above nonsense.

Thankfully, we have one Muslim who has rejected this absurdity.

The Blaze reported:

A source close to Elibiary told the IPT, however, that the Homeland Security adviser meant to say that he feels there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution and the American system that runs contrary to Islam.

Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, rejected the theory.

"His entire attempt to repeatedly say that 'American is Islamic' is pure deception in the context of an Islamist ideologue like him who has not only never critiqued Islamism but rather continuously advocates for it," Jasser said. "In fact it is not. American Islamists like Elibiary have consistently rejected debate with other anti-Islamist Muslims about the threat of Islamism and the way to separate Islam from Islamism.

"Why? If they lose that debate, his entire raison d'être inside the U.S. government ceases to exist."

Elibiary also compared criticism of Islamism, or political Islam, with "segregation era standards," and invoked the memory of the "separate & unequal doctrine" that marked that era.

Elibiary's defense of Islamism ignores how Islamist luminaries such as Sayyid Qutb – whom he previously praised – advocated forcing non-Muslims to enjoy an inferior legal status under the "protection" of the Islamic state.



Our government has been infiltrated at the highest levels.

Mark Levin: Two Bad Elections and Look What's Happened to Us.

Mark Levin:  They're at war with us and our pathetic president is playing golf. He's playing golf again today. He's hooked on golf like drug addicts are hooked on drugs. He used to do pot, he used to do coke, now he does golf. Unbelievable. And these pictures are sent all over the world. Every hellhole where these cockroaches live and function and rape and destroy they see it! They see him laughing five minutes after he gives that pathetic commentary. On the golf course. And he's supposed to represent us. 


He pretends he's Lincoln. Lincoln! What do you think Lincoln would do under these circumstances? You think he would tolerate it? He thinks he's FDR Do you think FDR would tolerate this? He's a nobody when the history books are written. This isn't about firsts. The presidency doesn't exist for him, the presidency exists for us. 



When a fellow American is so horribly abused and the other captors, it is said they used to beat the hell out of him because he was an American and his brother was in the Air Force. This poor guy. And this family. And have your son decapitated when you want to reach into that television screen and put your hand around that piece of crap's neck who is doing it to him and squeeze the freaking life out of him and we can't reach him? Bullcrap! And the Brits, to their credit, they think they know who he is. And when they know who he is our pathetic president should put a $25 million bond on his head. Cockroaches have been known to turn on cockroaches. Because that's what they do.



Good lord, I tell you what. Two bad elections and look it's happened to us as a people. Look what's happened to us. Look what's happened in the country. Look what's been done to the presidency. Look what's been done to our government. Look what's been done to our military. Look what's been done to our border. Look what's been done to our economy. Two freaking elections.

Austria is not Immune to the Jihad





Austria isn’t immune to the jihad. About 130 residents have fought alongside Islamic militants in and near Syria.  Most of them are foreign nationals, mainly from Turkey, Russia and the Balkans.  Forty were actual citizens.

Reuters reported the following:

The subject is at the top of the news agenda in the neutral Alpine republic after police arrested nine people this week who prosecutors said were believed to be on their way to Syria to join the fighting.

The suspects had mostly come to Austria as young people and got political asylum that could be revoked should they be convicted of joining a terrorist organization, officials said.
All nine have been remanded to investigative custody.
Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said support for radical Islamists was on the rise in Austria and called for closer European cooperation to address the issue.
"We need to close ranks across Europe in the fight against terrorism and jihadism," she said, urging a policy of zero tolerance.
Roughly half a million Muslims live in Austria, representing about 6 percent of the total population.


That’s about 6% too many.

Revenge of the Third World




The United States isn’t the only first-world nation inundated with unwanted immigrants.  The whole third-world is on the move.  Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Great Britain are flooded with people seeking to escape poverty, war and pestilence.  This massive amount of humanity has caused a problem.  What are they to do with all these people?

In France, migrants are rioting near Calais.  Most are from Asia, Africa and the Middle East.  They are trying to get to Great Britain.  Here is a description of the chaos:

More than 51 east African migrants desperate to reach the “El Dorado” of the UK were injured in ethnic clashes early today in Calais over access to lorry parks, in the second night of rioting near the ferry terminal.

Charity workers say the authorities are “overwhelmed” by a recent increase in the numbers of migrants in Calais which now totals 1,300. The clashes involved Sudanese fighting Eritrean and Ethiopian migrants, with sticks, iron bars and stones. The violence prompted local authorities to send in riot police on Monday, but they failed to quell the battles which drew in 300 people overnight.




The massive amount of humanity has a detrimental effect on the indigenous population.  These third-worlders will fail to assimilate.  They’ll bring the same prejudices and beliefs that made their native countries hellholes.  Take a look at France.  Muslims, whose beliefs are antagonistic to Western civilization, continuously riot.  There are no-go zones in Paris and other cities.  These enclaves are a danger to national security.

As of now, twice as many British Muslims are fighting for ISIS than the British armed forces.  One day these so-called citizens will come “home.”  Does anyone believe the jihad stops at the British shores? Worse, they have passports that grant them access to the rest of the world.  Isn’t that lovely?    

There is some good news.  European youths are aware of their elders’ betrayal.  They are beginning to speak out against this EU suicide pact.

Miami's Palestinian Leader Plots the Demise of Jews





Its bad enough we allow peoples from around the world to immigrate to the United States whose values and culture are contrary and antagonistic to Western civilization.  But to have the federal government fund their war on us is reprehensible. 

Domestic terrorist have wormed their way into taxpayer coffers.  They know all the right words to use.  They know who the tools are in our government and the gullible suckers who buy into their lies.  Sofian Zakkout, a Palestinian leader in Miami, knows how to play the game.  This man has played everyone for fools.  Jewish organizations believed him an honest broker for peace, when in fact he plots their demise.  Can anyone say Taqiyya?   

The Blaze reported the following:

Zakkout served on the US Commission on Civil Rights–Florida State Advisory Committee in 2002-10. In 2005, the FBI attended an event organized by Zakkout’s non-profit, the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA).  Jeff Green of the FBI’s Miami office explained there: "We just want to let the community know we're part of the community like they are. We protect the rights they have. Events like this help us to promote a greater understanding of community and law enforcement.'' 

The Department of Homeland Security awarded $70,000 in 2007 to an organization Zakkout founded, American Muslims for Emergency Relief (AMER). The Miami-Dade County Corps Council awarded Zakkout for his “outstanding” service. Miami-Dade commissioners appointed him to the Community Relations Board and the Asian Advisory Board. Former Broward County Mayor Kristin Jacobs appointed him to the Broward County Diversity Advisory Council.  As of 2010, his bio informs us, he was an active board member at Miami Dade County Citizen Corps, Miami-Dade Crime Watch for Citizens, and Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers.

Zakkout boasted in 2011 that “The Justice Department and other government agencies have put my organization’s name on their list of organizations that they are going to work with.”

As for Jewish organizations: He took part in J Street South Florida’s 2012 Passover Seder. He is co-chair of the Jewish-Arab Dialogue Association (JADA). He spoke at Temple Israel in Miami.  He co-sponsored an “Interfaith Dialogue” at Temple Sinai in North Miami Beach.  At the same synagogue, a rabbi lauded Zakkout in a sermon, no less: “I know you work very hard to build understanding and respect between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities, so again, thank you.” 
 

Recently, this noted arbiter of peace, held a pro-Hamas rally where the participants cheered the demise of Israel and the conquering of American Jews.  He posted these very sentiments on his Facebook page along with a statement that America was contaminated with Jews.



The only people contaminating America and Western civilization are people like Zakkout.



Foreign Jihadists Trying to Recruit Ferguson Rioters




Jihadists are salivating over the prospect of recruiting disgruntled Americans, particularly blacks, over the Ferguson riots.  They want us to believe racism doesn’t exist in Islam.  All peoples, according to them, are viewed equally.  Here is Great Britain’s leading Muslim mouthpiece:


All of the jihadists interviewed said Brown’s death confirms their beliefs that blacks are seen as second-class citizens by whites and especially by the police. “I think that blacks in the U.S. will look more towards Islam,” said Anjem Choudary from Great Britain, co-founder of the banned “al-­Muhajiroun” group. (Choudary’s teacher, Omar Bakri Muhammad, wasbarred from Britain and is currently in a Lebanese jail for his alleged support of jihadist movements in Syria and Iraq.) “The only way of life today that does not look at race is in fact Islam. Islam only distinguished people by whether they are Muslim or not. The color of their skin does not play a role,” Choudary said in a phone interview.


Obviously, that’s not true.  Islam is a supremacist ideology.  Muslims, to this day, engage in slavery.  Here is an excerpt from The Sword of the Prophet quoting a tenth-century Islamic writer’s culinary aphorism on the two major sources of slaves:


The people of Iraq have sound minds, commendable passions, balanced natures, and high proficiency in every art, together with well-proportioned limbs, well-compounded humors, and a pale brown color, which is the most apt and proper color.  They are the ones who are done to a turn in the womb.  They do not come out with something between blond, blanched and leprous coloring, such as the infants dropped from the wombs of the women of the Slavs and others of similar light complexion; nor are they overdone in the womb until they are burned, so that the child comes out black, murky, malodorous, stinking, and crinkly-haired, with uneven limbs, deficient minds, and depraved passions, such as the Ethiopians and other blacks who resemble them.  The Iraqis are neither half-baked dough nor burned crust, but between the two.






No racism there!  Even black Muslims are considered inferior.   Al-Qaeda treated their black brethren with contempt and second class status.   FrontPage Mag   published the following observation:


Robert Fowler, a former Canadian diplomat, witnessed up close this Arab racism against black jihadists in AQIM when he was an AQIM hostage for 130 days in the Sahara Desert in 2010. Fowler was on special assignment for the United Nations when kidnapped with another Canadian diplomat in Niger. He recorded his experiences in his book A Season In Hell: My 130 Days In The Sahara With Al Qaeda. Fowler noted that “there was a big gulf in the AQIM between those who were black and those who were not,” observing that Arabs, primarily Algerians, were the AQIM leaders, while blacks and young Arabs composed the rank and file.

“They preached equality, but did not practise it,” records Fowler. “Sub-Saharan Africans were clearly second class in the eyes of AQIM.”


Black Americans are well advised to stay away from this hateful “religion.”

There is only one way to deal with ISIS and that is to kill all of them.  Fox News analyst, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, and others have rightly come to that conclusion.

The way you deal with Islamic State, these bloodthirsty, blood drunken terrorists, is to kill them, keep on killing them, until you kill the last one and then you kill his pet goat.

Old Farmer's Almanac Predicts Refriger-Nation Winter




When a farmer makes plans for next year’s crops, he doesn’t consult Al Gore or a climatologist.  Hysteria, hot air and hockey stick graphs will not suffice.  What he needs is a time tested prognosticator that has an accuracy rate scientist like James Hanson of NASA is envious of.  God knows he and his ilk have been wrong so often, it’s become an embarrassment. What this steward of the land consults is the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

And what kind of winter are we going to have?  According to Editor Janice Stillman, it will be a “refriger-nation.”  All I have to say is thank God for global warming.  Otherwise, we’d be in an ice age.

And what factors contribute to The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s success?

The almanac, which has about an 80 percent success rate in its forecasts, employs modern technology but still uses the "secret formula" that founder Robert Thomas devised in 1792. By combining the study of sunspots, prevailing weather patterns and basic meteorology, the almanac's weather staff comes up with a long-range forecast. The temperature deviations are based on 30-year averages compiled by government forecasters.

Sunspots?  Are they trying to tell us the sun has something to do with the earth’s temperature?  Somebody needs to inform these man-made global warming fanatics.

Student Arrested & Suspended for "Shooting a Dinosaur"




 Just when you think you’ve heard it all, another libtard shakes the cage of stupidity.  Alex Stone, a 16 year old student, was arrested and suspended for writing a short story about killing a dinosaur with a gun.  I kid you not. 

Stone said in his "status" he wrote a fictional story that involved the words "gun" and "take care of business."
"I killed my neighbor's pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business," Stone said.
Stone says his statements were taken completely out of context.
"I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have "gun" in it. But a pet dinosaur?" said Alex's mother Karen Gray."I mean first of all, we don't have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he's not even old enough to buy a gun."
Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words "gun" and "take care of business," and police were then notified on Tuesday

I believe the teacher should be suspended for not exercising common sense.  Do we really need people like that around children?

Census Bureau: 35.4% Americans on Federal Welfare




Townhall.com reported the following disturbing statistic:

109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded "means-tested programs" -- also known as welfare -- as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.

But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.


That doesn’t count the “non-means-tested programs” or in other words entitlement programs.

North Carolina Teachers Have it Better Than They Think




If you live in North Carolina, chances are you’ve heard the hue and cry about how impoverished our teachers are.  According to every libtard organization that infest this state, educators are practically spit on and kicked around.  Here is a local rag outlining their abuse.


Pay for the teachers who educate the state's roughly 1.5 million public school students ranks 46th in the country, above only Mississippi and West Virginia among 12 Southeastern states, the report said. Five years ago, North Carolina teacher salaries were in the middle of the state rankings.

One out of nine teachers earn the lowest base salary of $30,800 because there are few meaningful raises until the fifth year on the job, the report said. The North Carolina average teacher salary of $45,933 last year was nearly $10,000 less than the national average, according to the National Education Association.

That sounds pretty bad doesn’t it?  But it’s not, considering the median income for a family of four in North Carolina is $45,150.  So actually, experienced teachers make little more than the average Tar Heel family.  And as far as base salary, hey, everyone has to learn their trade.

As for that 46th ranking in the country, the median household income in the U.S. is $51,371.  Now let’s take a look at the map below.  Here is what $100 is worth in each state.  It seems to me teachers in North Carolina are squawking about nothing.  But what do you expect from a democratic constituency.
