Income Inequality - Sponsored By Hillary Clinton......

Income inequality - Sponsored By Hillary Clinton.
Nobody knows more about making the rich richer and the poor poorer than Hillary Clinton.
Her family has been at the forefront of that activity for decades.
Along the way she has made herself incredibly wealthy. That is what public service is all about. She is happy to do it.
The super rich have made it clear. They are with her.
Bernie Sanders had to hang out with football stadium full of people to raise the kind of money Hillary raises in an elevator ride.
Hillary wants you to believe she is raising that money so she can help the poor people. You know....The poor people who give her no money of any kind.
Those are the people she is fighting for. Not the people lining her pockets with outrageous sums of money.
Hillary is out to raise a Billion dollars. BILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!
Where is that money going to come from? Not poor people.
It is no coicidence that the rich people who give the most money also reap 100% of the benefits.
It is the best government money can buy. Minority rule. How all great Democracies work.

71% Think The Economy Is Rigged.....

The results of 8 years of Barack Obamas hard work.
The Bush economy was completely rigged.....
But don't worry because Obama will fix everything.
See....all fixed.

No Fireworks In Hartford This Year.....Enjoy a Bus Ride.....

For 35 years there have been fireworks in Hartford.....But this year there will be nothing.

They are short $120,000.00.

There is no money.  None.

I mean when they needed a $600,000,000.00 to build a busway (so people could flock to Hartford and revitalize the economy.....which nobody actually does) they found the money.

When Hartford needed $63,000,000.00 to build a baseball stadium (that nobody uses...... because it is never completed) to entertain the hoards of people flocking to Hartford......They found the money.

But $120,000.00 to do what they always do.......Sorry the money just doesn't exist anywhere.

The good news is the State of Connecticut did find money to give top executives at Uconn hefty raises.

Well.....Anyway.......Enjoy the 4th of July at your house.  Light a sparkler or something.....Yay America......

Hillary Knows She Is Dishonest........

Hillary knows she is a liar.

Hillary knows that you know she is a liar.

Hillary has had 25 years to convince you she is not a liar and she has failed miserably.

But don't worry......In the next 5 months she is going to get it all straightened out. Keep the faith.

Pat Summitt

Pat Summits death is a huge loss to the world of sports.
Woman's basketball exists in its current form because of Pat Summit.
Without Pat there is no WNBA. Without Pat woman's basketball is just another sport nobody pays much attention too.
Pat made it all very relevant.
Connecticut is Uconn country and everyone knows Uconn Woman's basketball reigns supreme.....But that is only true because of Pat Summit.
Uconn has won the last 4 national Championships. That was made a lot easier with Pat Summit retired.
When Pat was coaching winning Championships was a lot harder to accomplish. When it was accomplished (and Pat was coaching) it meant a lot more.
In Connecticut Pat Summit was the villain. Everyone hated her with passion. Tennessee was the mortal enemy. But it was all based on respect.
The Boston Celtics were better because they played the Los Angeles Lakers. Bird had Magic.
Uconn was better because they played Tennessee. Pat had Geno.
Ali had Frazier.
Sports is always more interesting with great rivalries and Uconn Tennessee was one of the greatest of all time.
There was no greater disappointment then when Tennessee stopped playing Uconn. Geno was left unchecked to dominate the sport.
Knowing the Uconn Tennessee rivalry will never again be is very sad.
Rest In Peace Pat. You were one of the all time greats.

Elizabeth Warren Is A Fraud.......

Elizabeth Warren is a complete fraud.
Supposedly she is a champion for progressive causes.
But when Elizabeth had her chance to step forward and support Bernie Sanders (also a champion of progressive causes) she decided to pass. Elizabeth stood on the sidelines and said nothing as Bernie fought the fight by himself.
Elizabeth knew her corrupt Democratic Party was never going to let Bernie win. If Elizabeth came out and endorsed Bernie it would mean she would be irrelevant once the general election rolled around. Elizabeth doesn’t want to be irrelevant, not when she could be vice president instead.
Better to sell out all your beliefs and convictions to corporate Hillary (and get power) than stay true and end up on the sidelines with Bernie.
So now that Bernie is out of the way Elizabeth is all about Hillary Clinton. Hillary is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Elizabeth and Hillary……. together with arms raised to the sky. Two people who never got along (or agreed on anything) are now suddenly buddies.
Hillary needs Elizabeth and Elizabeth needs Hillary. Hillary is out for Hillary and Elizabeth is out for Elizabeth. Nobody is out for you. Democracy at its finest. Hillary will sell you out in a hot second and apparently Elizabeth will as well.
Politicians with convictions…….That is what our country needs.

Social Security Has 18 More Years Till It Runs Dry.....Get Ready To Pay The Price.....

In 18 years the Social Security Trust Fund runs out of money.
When corporate America sent all the jobs overseas they doomed your Social Security to death.
They told you it was going to be a great thing. They told you it would help the economy. They lied to you.
They took all the benefits and they left you with a large problem. Now you will pay the price. Pretty awesome huh?
These are the choices they are giving you......
You can get less benefits. Or you can work more years. Or you can pay higher Social Security taxes.
Or....if you like...... you can pay higher social security taxes AND get less benefits.......and work more years.
Any questions?
No where do they offer the option of bringing the lost jobs back from Communist Red China. Bringing the jobs back would shore up your social Security too. That solution fixes everything.
The United States has lost 3, 200, 000 manufacturing jobs since 2001. That is 3,200,000 workers no longer paying into Social Security.
Now you have to make up their shortfall. Since there is no incentives for your wages to go up it will take you longer to do it too.
See.......You get completely screwed every which way you turn. But hey.....At least you still have a pension. Oh wait.....Never mind.

US Sends TWO Aircraft Carriers To South China Sea......China Not Pleased.....

This weekend Vladimir Putin will be visiting Communist Red China.
To send a strong message the United States has deployed TWO Aircraft Carrier Strike groups to the South China Sea.
The two groups will be doing joint exercises this weekend in a show of overwhelming strength.
Operating two aircraft carrier groups together is not something that happens very often.
Most times One Aircraft Carrier is enough to send a strong message.
But Communist Red China has become such a military problem that the United States decided two Carriers would be even more impressive.
The Communists are not pleased. Not pleased at all. They are down right huffy about the situation.

NRA Blocks Research.....Which blocks The Truth.....

What the gun crowd hates most of all is the truth.
There is nothing worse than the truth. That is especially true when the truth is at complete odds with the fake make believe narrative the NRA has created.
So what you do is you hide the truth...... you prevent the truth....... You confuse the truth.
Whatever you need to do to misdirect the conversation.
If they say guns make you safer........ but research shows this is not true, than you just need to prevent the research.
That is exactly what has happened.
Nobody is better at blocking the truth than Republicans. Republicans hate the truth more than anything and are more than happy to prevent it from coming out.
Conducted by a team headed by Arthur L. Kellermann, then at theUniversity of Tennessee, the study investigated the consequence of firearms in the home. Drawing from statistics in the Memphis, Seattle and Cleveland metropolitan areas, Kellermann found that “keeping a gun in the home was strongly and independently associated with an increased risk of homicide … by a family member or intimate acquaintance.” Even after controlling for such factors as illicit drug use, criminal records or a history of domestic violence, the risk was found to be almost three times higher than in homes without firearms.
This was a blow to the NRA because “it saw that would not help them sell more guns,” Rosenberg observed. Kellermann’s paper, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1993, noted that “protection from crime” was the most commonly cited rationale for having guns in the home. Forced entry by an intruder accounted for a tiny subgroup of real cases, though it loomed large in the fears of homeowners. “A gun kept in the home is far more likely to be involved in the death of a member of the household than it is to be used to kill in self-defense,” Kellermann wrote. “In the light of … our present findings, people should be strongly discouraged from keeping guns in their homes.”
The NRA attacked the Kellermann study for its methodology and findings, but the impact on research funding was far more effective and long-lived. A generation of researchers was discouraged from entering a field in which grants were hard to come by and the political push-back intense.
It’s widely supposed that Congress enacted a “ban” on federal funding for gun violence research in 1996. That isn’t quite true, says Mark Rosenberg, a gun violence expert who was head of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at the time. But the truth is even more demoralizing.
the NRA goaded Congress in 1996 into stripping the injury center’s funding for gun violence research – $2.6 million. Congress then passed a measure drafted by then-Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Ga.) forbidding the CDC to spend funds “to advocate or promote gun control.” (The NRA initially hoped to eradicate the injury center entirely.)

Trump Wants To Ban Muslims......But the Killing Won't be affected......

Donald Trump doubled down on his ban Muslims to solve the mass killing problems in the United States plan.
For Trump clearly the problem is Muslims and not guns, or mentally unstable people getting guns.
Here is the thing..........
If all the Muslims in the United States weren't here Adam Lanza still would. The 25 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School would have still been gunned down. Adam was not a Muslim.
Dylan Storm Roof would have still been here to kill 9 people in Charleston South Carolina in 2015. Dylan was not a Muslim.
Elliot O Roger would have still been here to kill 6 people in Isla Vista California. Elliot was not a Muslim.
Aaron Alexis would have still been here to kill 12 people in Washington DC. Aaron was not a Muslim.
Wade Michael Page would have still been here to kill 6 people in Oak Creek Wisconsin. Wade was not a Muslim.
James Holmes would have still been here to kill 12 people and wound 70 more in Aurora Colorado. James was not a Muslim.
Jared Loughner would have still been here to kill 6 people and wound 14 others in Tucson Arizona.
Omar Thorton would have still been here to kill 8 people in Manchester CT. Omar was not a Muslim.
Jiverly Wong would have still been here to kill 13 people in Binghamton NY. Jiverly was not a Muslim.
Steve Kazmierczak would have still been here to kill 5 people and wound 16 more in Dekalb Ill.
It is nice to pretend the only people out killing are the Muslims.
Unfortunately it is just not true. Muslims do kill people. Christians kill people. Jews kill people. Everyone kills people. The problem isn't this religion or that. The problem is easy access to guns. The problem is mentally unstable people can get guns whenever they want.
Donald Trump is just making himself look like more of an idiot.

Orlando Massacre......Crickets From The NRA.....

It has been awful quiet from the NRA………
I only hear Crickets……They must be hiding under their desks. They are such a bunch of cowards.
Normally the NRA has a lot to say.
But really what is there left to say?
They can’t say armed guards would have prevented the Orlando massacre………. because there were three armed guards there. They acted. They shot back. Still didn’t matter. 102 innocent people shot anyway.
Once again we see guns do absolutely (positively) NOTHING whatsoever to keep people safe. It is a fantasy….. not a reality.
This all could have been prevented too. 49 people are dead today who don’t need to be dead. This event was as predictable as the sun rising in the east.
In 2012 (after the Sandy Hook tragedy) Republicans (and the NRA) could have allowed Assault weapons to be rebanned.
If they were banned this tragedy would have been very different. The killer used an assault weapon. It was like shooting fish in a barrel.
If High Capacity magazines were rebanned this could have been very different.
The killer used high capacity magazines. Pop….pop…..pop….pop…..pop….pop….pop…pop….pop….. It was easy. 102 shot out of 350 there.
If People on terrorist watch lists were not allowed to buy guns this could have been prevented. This killer was investigated twice by the FBI.
But the Minority Gun Crowd (and the Republicans) would not allow any of it.
Republicans tell you all about how they are the ones keeping you safe. They tell you this as they provide the terrorists with all the weapons they want.
Go ask the 350 people at the Orlando night club how safe the Republicans kept them.
Meanwhile Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the country. Unfortunately this killer was born in the United States. He is a US Citizen…… not a refugee. Banning Muslims from entering the united States would have done nothing to prevent the 102 people from being shot.
Banning assault weapons…….Banning high capacity magazines………. and expanding back ground checks would have prevented a lot of what occurred. Trump left all that out of his speech.
Remember the good old days when the worst shooting was Columbine. That was 13 people killed and it took two shooters to do it. That is because in 1999 there was an assault weapons ban. Once the Republicans let the ban expire (in 2004) the massacres have gotten worse and worse. Now we are up to 102 people shot. 49 people killed from 1 shooter…….. as opposed to 13 people from two shooters. Who would have thought Columbine would one day be the good ol days.
That is Republican progress for you. They are looking out for you.

3.46 Million For Lunch With Warren....Poor People Need Not Apply.....

A multi Billionaire agrees to have a fancy two hour lunch with a multi millionaire. Then he donates the millionaires money to charity. That is how Warren Buffett helps the less fortunate.
He is not going to go volunteer at a homeless shelter. Don't be stupid. He isn't even going to talk to a bunch of poor people. I mean who wants to hang out with poor people. Certainly not Warren.
It is a fancy steak. Two hours of blah blah conversation with a millionaire who worships you. Then into the limo and on your way.
The next day from coast to coast will be headlines of how charitable Warren Buffett is. What a guy. He ate a steak. Amazing. Didn't even have to break a sweat. Didn't even have to write a check. It is good to be rich. Perhaps he cut his own steak.....That would be something.
So see ya next year for another charitable lunch with another millionaire. If you are looking for Warren (before that) he will be on his private plane......Not hanging out with you.....Or poor people.

USA National Security For Sale To The Highest Clinton Donor.....

For Hillary and Bill Clinton EVERYTHING in the United States has a price tag on it.
Whatever it is you want can be yours if you donate enough money…..If the check has enough zeros than you are good to go.
There is NOTHING more important than the National Security of the United States……… and that is why it is for sale by Hillary Clinton.
Do you want to be on a National Security board? Great than just donate a bunch of money (to Hillary) and you are in. Not even a problem.
You have no qualifications to be on the National Security committee?……. Well who cares? As long as your check clears than you are good to go.
Line up to get your National security clearance and you are in. Have fun. Oh but don’t talk to the media. There is freedom of the Press in the United States but if the press asks too many questions just threaten to have them arrested. Just like in a communist country.
When it comes to being total Scum bags there is nobody who does it better than the Clintons. NOBODY!!!!
Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff.
The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later.
A prolific fundraiser for Democratic candidates and contributor to the Clinton Foundation, who later traveled with Bill Clinton on a trip to Africa, Rajiv K. Fernando’s only known qualification for a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB) was his technological know-how. The Chicago securities trader, who specialized in electronic investing, sat alongside an august collection of nuclear scientists, former cabinet secretaries and members of Congress to advise Hillary Clinton on the use of tactical nuclear weapons and on other crucial arms control issues.
Fernando’s lack of any known background in nuclear security caught the attention of several board members, and when ABC News first contacted the State Department in August 2011 seeking a copy of his resume, the emails show that confusion ensued among the career government officials who work with the advisory panel.
“I have spoken to [State Department official and ISAB Executive Director Richard Hartman] privately, and it appears there is much more to this story that we’re unaware of,” wrote Jamie Mannina, the press aide who fielded the ABC News request. “We must protect the Secretary’s and Under Secretary’s name, as well as the integrity of the Board. I think it’s important to get down to the bottom of this before there’s any response.
Fernando himself would not answer questions from ABC News in 2011 about what qualified him for a seat on the board or led to his appointment. When ABC News finally caught up with Fernando at the 2012 Democratic convention, he became upset and said he was "not at liberty" to speak about it. Security threatened to have the ABC News reporter arrested.

Tesla's are Dangerous....Shhhhhh Don't say anything.

Shady Elon Musk.
He will fix his dangerous Tesla's but only if you agree not to tell anyone his car is total crap.
Telling people the front wheel might fall off your tesla (sending you careening to your death) will be bad for sales. So it is real important to keep quiet.
So you agree to shut the hell up and he will fix it for you.
regulators are looking into reports of a flaw in some Tesla models that could cause the driver to lose control of the car.
They're also looking into reports that Tesla (TSLA) has been asking owners to sign non-disclosure agreements before the automaker would pay for repairs.
The agreements reportedly required that vehicle owners don't say anything to anyone about the problem, the repair or even about the agreement itself.
Tesla did not immediately comment.
Owners have complained both to NHTSA about front suspension components failing on Tesla Model S cars and on the Model X SUV. These parts help attach the wheel to the car and could cause the driver to lose control if they fail.

Obama Wants Credit For The Economy....Just don't look at the Details Of What He Actually Did.....

President Obama is frustrated that you still think the economy sucks after all he has done to save it.

You just don't understand.......

“If you ask the average person on the streets, ‘Have deficits gone down or up under Obama?’ probably 70 percent would say they’ve gone up,” Obama said, with some justifiable exasperation — the deficit has in fact declined (by roughly three-quarters) since he took office, and polls do show that a large majority of Americans believe the opposite.

And this is where Obama tries to confuse the topic......

There are two things.  

There is the Deficit..... which is how much money the government spends over and above what is brought in through tax revenue.

There is the National Debt....Which is the total amount of money the government owes.

When Obama took office he spent money like a drunken sailor and the Deficit exploded to absurd levels.  Over 1 trillion dollars a year at one point.  

In the later years he has spent less money but the budget is still in deficit.  So technically Obama is correct......The deficit (that he exploded) has come down.  But the reality is it is not really saying a lot.  It is like an alcoholic drinking 15 beers on Friday night and then on Saturday night only drinking 6 beers and acting like somehow that a great accomplishment.  It is still all bad.

The real problem is the National Debt.  It took 42 presidents 232 years to rack up 10 trillion dollars in debt.  It took Obama less than 8 years to almost double that.  By next year the National Debt will be 19 Trillion Dollars.  Obama has spent more money than every president in history combined.  When he was done (and the countries credit card was smoking) everyone still thinks the economy sucks.

But Obama doesn't want to talk about the National Debt.  He just hopes you got confused on his deficit point and are ready to move on.....Oh and thank him.

Top 1% up 188% since 1979......

Trickle Down Economics.

Give the rich people all the money and watch it trickle down to the poor people.

1979 to 2013.

Top 1% income up 188%  (WOWEE!!!!)

Upper Income Households up 63%  (Nice!)

Middle Class Income up 18% (LOSSSSERS!)

Lower Income up 18%  (LOSSSERS!)

Thank you Ronald Reagan, and George HW Bush, and Bill Clinton, and George W Bush, and Barack Obama.

Everything worked out great.  The rich got all the money.  Spectacular.

Military Losing Jets All Over The Place.....

The flying military is having a tough month.
May 26th....Two US Jets collide.
June 8th......Two more US Jets collide.
Plus the Thunderbirds lost a jet.
Plus the Blue Angels lost a jet (on the same day).
6 lost jets in less than 3 weeks.....Not good.

Trump hates Teleprompters.....Pay no attention to his though....

Trump is getting ready to give a speech using a teleprompter.
Here are all the times Trump made fun of using a teleprompter.
Trump says one thing.......Than he does the opposite.
He does this over and over and over.....

Hillary's Involvement In TPP......None Of Your Business....

Hillary Clinton helped design the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement (when she worked at the State Department).
That is the agreement that will send millions more American jobs overseas to slave labor.
That is the agreement that candidate Clinton insists she is against.
That is right.....She is against the agreement which she helped create......Wink....Wink.
You have the right to know what she said about the agreement and what she did about the agreement.
After all the government works for you. There are supposed to be few secrets in an open democratic government.
Unfortunately Barack Obama does not agree with that assessment. He will not let you know what Hillary was up to. It is none of your business.
By Law Barack has to tell you though......and he will.......Right after the election next November.
Once the decisions are made you can have all the information you want. Until then you can mind your freakin business.
Sincerely Barack Obama.

Women Still Getting Obese.....

Women are still not reading my posts.
They are still consuming High Fructose Corn syrup and they are still getting fat.
The experts are perplexed. Is it genetics? No...No it is not. It is just High Fructose Corn Syrup.
This is not hard.
If you don't want to be fat than don't eat High Fructose Corn Syrup. Not complicated at all.
Here we can do this together.
Go to your cabinet. Pull out the salad dressing. Flip it over. Read the label. Does it say High Fructose Corn Syrup? If it does than throw it in the trash.
Pull out the barbecue sauce. Flip it over. Read the label. Does it say High Fructose Corn Syrup? If it does throw it in the trash.
Pull out the loaf of bread. Flip it over. Read the label. Does it say High Fructose Corn Syrup? If it does throw it in the trash.
Pull out the soda. You don't need to flip it over. Just throw it in the trash.
Pull out the cookies. Flip them over. Read the label. Does it say High Fructose Corn Syrup? If it does than throw it in the trash.
See how easy this is? You look thinner already.
Keep going. Don't stop. Read the label on every food item you consume. If any of them say High Fructose Corn Syrup than do no put them in your mouth. Ever!
Now when you are done not eating all that High Fructose Corn Syrup you will need a new smaller bathing suit.
You're Welcome!

D Day (Repost)

June 6 1944,

D - Day.  (Operation Overlord)

There are not many single days in the last 100 years that affected the course of world history. 

June 6, 1944 was definitely one that did. 

That was the day the world decided whether it would be Free or Fascist.  

If you don’t know the story of D Day, you should.  Your life (and the world map) exists in its current form because the events of D - Day were successful.

World War 2 had been raging for 5 years.  The United States had been fighting for 3. 

The Americans had battled the Nazi’s across North Africa and defeated them.

The Americans battled the Nazi’s across Italy and defeated them again.

Those battles were the easy part of the war.  Now it was time for the hard part. 

The Allies needed to find a way to get onto the continent of Europe.  That meant crossing the English Channel and Landing somewhere along the occupied French coastline. 

The Nazi’s knew the invasion would be coming.  That was not a secret but they didn’t know when, and they didn’t know where. 

Hitler had spent 3 years constructing the Atlantic Wall.  This was considered an impenetrable set of defenses stretching hundreds of miles along the coast. 

The Germans were expecting the landing to be around Calais, because geographically it made the most sense. 

There were three conditions that had to be met for the invasion to go forward. 

1)      There needed to be a full moon because paratroopers were jumping in the middle of the night. In 1944 there was no such thing as night vision goggles. 

2)      It had to be low tide.  The Nazis placed tons of beach obstacles meant to sink incoming landing craft.  In low tide they would be visible.

3)      It needed to be relatively clear because planes could not operate in poor weather conditions. 

If any of those conditions were not met the invasion would have to wait.

When the D Day landings began (at Normandy) the Germans were confused and thought it might be a diversion.  First it was taking place at the wrong location and second it was raining.  This confusion (and delay with reinforcements) was critical to the success the Allies achieved.

The Germans were also sure the invasion would be led by General Patton.  General Patton was Americas best General.  He also scared the heck out of the Nazi’s.

The Nazis best General was Rommel.  It was Rommel who was in charge of defending the French coast line. 

Rommel led the Nazi’s in North Africa and Patton kicked his behind.  Because of this butt whoopin the Germans were positive it would be Patton coming across the channel.  The Americans knew this and used Patton as a decoy in the weeks leading up to the invasion. 

Patton actually played no role in the D - Day landings.  As a stroke of luck Rommel was back in Germany when the landings happened.

The actual invasion was the largest amphibious operation ever in history. 

The sheer size and scope of the operation was enormous.  156,000 troops landed on 5 beaches (Code name - Utah, Omaha, Gold, Sword, Juno) across 50 miles (in one day).  There were 5,000 ships, 50,000 vehicles, and 11,000 aircraft. 

It was like nothing ever attempted before or since. 

If it failed (and the allies were repelled back into the sea) the entire war could have been lost. 

Today everybody thinks the United States winning World War II was a forgone conclusion, but at the time it was anything but.

The total number of dead or wounded (between all of the Allies) was 10,377. 

The United States had 1,465 killed.   To put that in perspective, in the Afghanistan war (which has been waged for 12 years) The United States has lost just over 1000 soldiers.  D – Day had more then that in 1 day.

When June 6th ended the Allies had their foot hold.

By June 11th the beaches were secured and an additional 326,000 troops landed (with over 100,000 tons of equipment). 

The fighting raged on for another year.  By August 26 1944 Paris was liberated. 

On May 8th, 1945 Germany Surrendered and Hitler was dead.  That surrender was only possible because D Day was successful.

So as you go about your day (today) and feel you have it tough, just remember….. if you were not squeezed on an overcrowded Higgins boat…… wet….. sea sick, and heading towards Omaha beach (on this day 69 years ago) you really have nothing to complain about. 

It is because there were young men on those boats (who sacrificed everything) that we can complain about trivial things today.
