Are you better off than four years ago? Not according to these stats

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Are you better off than you were four years ago? Your liberal friends would sure like you to think that President Obama has made America a better place during his time in office, but on radio this morning Glenn listed some stats that show how America is really doing after four years of fundamental transformation. The number of unemployed Americans, people receiving food stamps , the federal debt, americans in poverty, gasp prices, and more have all skyrocketed under this administration. Meanwhile, middle class incomes, home values, and U.S. competitiveness have plummeted.

The facts:

    no no where not better off. and i know that, i cant got all the thangs i did 4 years ago

  • landofaahs

    Yes. Because I shorted everything obama attacked. I bought gold and silver. But the future is not so good. Only those connected to obama will do better as time goes by because of his riggernomics. That is rigged economies to pay off those who support him. A rigged economy.

    Right now I can state plainly, I see the devaluation of my money every time I go to the store; four years ago the shoulder bag I could fill with groceries for $30.00 now takes nearly $45.00 to fill.

    Items that I get, single meals and such for one person, are getting smaller in size and weight; while prices fluxuate almost daily. Thank God that my grandparents taught me to stock ahead, the stories of the great depression sunk home with me indeed.

    Hopefully this November we will see Obama out of the White House.

    What should be going up is going down; what should be going down is going up…so this November lets raise the voters coming to the polls so we can lower the current admin to a single term and put them out the door.

    This November speak clearly and vote: FIRE OBAMA.

    Become connected comrade – begin live the new American dream – all is good yes? – all are equal and have enough to eat, what more can we “the peasant class” ask for. We must learn to trust completely, our wise leaders and not rock the boat. On with progress – on with the good life….

    Unfortunatly for me gold has been out of my price range; I have enough that is invested right now to get by and hopefully we will have Romney in the office next year.
    My main concern is what Obama and the Democrats will try to cram through in a lame duck session to ensure the economic collapse, and a Middle Eastern or even World War, to dump in Romneys lap as he comes into office.
    I posted about the negotiations for the Blink Shieks release on Thehill.com this morning; and man you should see the firestorm I have touched off. Nothing can be finer than liberal trolls flaming bright into the night as the truth hits home.

    I agree the the “entire” White House Staff needs to be washed out of there and we decent people need to keep it clean!

    My grade school daughter asked me this last April…
    “Dad I have a question for you. There is a New Book in the School Library called the ‘Obama Book’, it says how he is the Greatest President there has ever been… (small pause) I don’t believe that because things are worse somehow. But, what I want to know is why is the Library Lady Keeping Two Lists? One List is for kids that check out the Obama Book, and the other one is for kids that are NOT checking it out. What should I DO?”
    I told her to Check Out the Book and bring it home so we could discuss what’s in it. She came back the next day and said that she checked out the book, but they would not let her take it out of the Library (she did mention multiple copies available to kids). Then she kinda freaked me out by saying, “Dad remember those things you told me and brother to watch out for, like when they say stuff that we know isn’t true! Well It’s In THERE! Doesn’t Lying make him the Worst President Ever? It also says that he Made All Kinds of New Jobs, but lots of people we know don’t have jobs now.” She stopped and went into her own deep thoughts for a moment and then ran off to play. I know Parents Influence Their Kids Thinking, but I couldn’t help but wonder if I Totally Influenced Her Thinking -or- If She Was Doing Her Own Critical Thinking. But, I was Relieved to Know that She could tell lies on her own at the age of 10, and Believe That the Truth is much better!

    Deep within their lair the Koch Brothers cackle with evil laughter.
    “Is that all master?” Charles sneers.
    “Yes my son,” a hooded figure calmly states. “These are all the statistics I have just pulled out of my ass to fire up the Glenn Beck fan base.”
    “Those Beck acolytes don’t even know what the word biased means,” chuckles David. “They will never notice that these were Republican stated facts on a Republican politicians website.”
    “Your right my child. Those Republicans are way too stupid which is why it is so easy for me to manipulate them,” the figure says while pushing back his hood to reveal his horns.
    “Satan I love you,” the Koch brothers say in unison.

    According to these stats, it is clear that Obama should be voted OUT!. Why doesn’t Romney keep hammering at these stats openly to the public? The media won’t touch these results one iota while they will nail Romney at very opportunity. Get Romney to expose these stats at ALL the debates coming up and let’s see Obama and Biden squirm their butts off.

  • Matt Driscoll

    I am not sure why there are quotes around Obama book because it is not a real book. Please stop telling lies. It would deserve quotes it it was real but your quotations are pointless because this book, and probably this story, is just a figment of your imagination.

    As the Federal Reserve continues to print money, as the debt continues to climb, as the deficits are spiraling out of control and as inflation is on a serious rise, anyone who says they are is either a complete moron, completely naive or both. You want to see one of these fools, look down this forum at Matt Driscoll, he is a perfect example of how dumbed-down the people in this country are. Look at the shit that drops out of his pie hole…

  • Matt Driscoll

    Just like you think only progressives are evil. Nice try buddy getting caught up in your own sentence. By the way lets have a little compassion for other opinions on this site. A wise man once said:

    I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

    Thomas Jefferson

  • Matt Driscoll

    I can’t tell what your stance is friend.

  • greywolfrs

    Actually, I find your first statement comical. Since I am a Libertarian, I view both sides as morons, unfortunately for you, left wingers are so dumb, they supply WAY more material.

    Why would you quote Jefferson, since you left wing idiots hate everything he stood for, he was an anti-federalist, the very antithesis of “progressiveism.”

    Nice try, but we are not buddies, friends or pals, you would do well to remember that.

    $30.00 in 2008 had the same buying power as $32.23 in 2012.

    Nice try. I’m sorry your Hamburger Helper and Hungry Man Pork BBQ went up a bit in price. Any consumer website would also tell you to buy in bulk friend. Meals for one are a terrible investment. I bought a 20 lb. bag of rice the other day for 7.99. That is probably the cost of one of your meals for one. You should focus more on being a smart consumer during these impending times. Stop spending your money on Beck approved Goldline. I understand those TV dinners are real appealing especially when eating one in your wife beater and live streaming the 700 club.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Nice try troll, I am not a wife beater nor watch the 700 club. You understand nothing and dare to make accusations of me; tell you what, if you have any proof of my so called ‘wife beating’ (especially as I have no wife), then call the authorities and send them out.
    I am calling you out on this one troll, put up or shut up. I will not tolerate such threats and claims made against me.

    wife beater

    757 up, 405 down

    a very tight, white tank top that is ribbed in
    texture. this style of shirt is usually found on overweight white guys
    hailing from the trailer courts. unmistakeable markings of bbq sauce or
    chew spit on the front and smelling of old style beer and excessive
    perspiration. the wearer can be found at any type of festival which
    involves his toothless relatives working the carnival rides.

    Woah. Sounds like Glenn Beck acolyte rhetoric to me. Why don’t we just string him up by a noose while we are at it and let the coon dogs nip at his ankles. Listen your subtle racism is getting old. How can you support Restoring Love and then spout hate like this. Utter hypocrisy.

    Facts are facts Sir, regardless of who posted them previously. Which of these are you disputing, because most of them come from your beloved Chicago thug administration. Also missing are the total employment stats which show that fewer Americans are employed now than when your hero took over the helm, which is a better indicator of our economic health than his desperate claim that he has “created or saved” 4.5 million jobs, what ever that means.
    To these stats you should add our decline on the 144 country Economic Freedom index from #3 in 2000 to #18 in 2010. Economist Richard Rahn describes the index:
    “The main components of
    the index include the size of government (taxing and spending), legal systems,
    property rights, sound money, freedom to trade internationally, and regulation
    (including credit markets, labor and business regulations). The report says it
    “uses 42 different variables derived from sources such as the World Bank to
    measure the degree to which the institutions and policies of 144 countries are
    consistent with economic freedom.” It is published by the Cato Institute in the
    United States, the Fraser
    Institute in Canada and a network of institutes in
    78 other countries”.
    Are we better off under Zero? Not a chance! Good luck as you flutter around your fantasy land, I hope you’re socking away a lot of gold to help you cope with Zero’s coming Weimar Republic-like inflation! You’ll need it!

    Obama in 2008: “if I don’t fix it in 3 1/2 years I’m done.” consummate liar. Who would even remotely think we are better off? Gas prices double, home values plummeted, unemployment highest in decades, retirement accounts diminished, US household wealth down 38% just for starters. The only ones I can think of that may be better off are government/union workers and those on the government dole (and I’m not talking about those unable to do for themselves). Give me the job creator any day over the food stamp/welfare/dependency president thank you. Romney/Ryan November.

    Its true, Rome went through this same type of upheaval that the States are experiencing today. And, like Rome – our collapse is imminent – that is, if our political elect do not come up with a better game plan. Here at home we are split right down the middle, with each side traveling in opposite directions. We can only be pulled apart so far, before we break. Then, to add to the tension, our foreign policy is elementary at best and today, we have both parties pointing their fingers at each other claiming, they are not responsible for the latest round of mayhem in the Middle East. The expression – Absurd – is all that comes to mind. We must come up with a better way, to find the solution that the greater majority of our people can agree for our futures course, or frankly, we have no future.

    My way of looking at this is – “if you can’t beat-em join-em”, I know that sounds like a sell-out, but that way at least, we won’t be killing each other in the streets. It also means, the streets most likely will be cram-packed with sparsely dressed homosexuals sporting their latest tattoo on their derriere. And No – I’m not joining in the bizarre behavior that far! Maybe just sit back in bewilderment at what the hell we’ve become!

    I’m reminded of my youngest daughter in something that happened years ago. It wasn’t until we used reverse psychology that things turned around in favor of our wishes. You see, she had this boyfriend that was one big asshole, to put it bluntly, anyway, the more (we her parents) attempted to get rid of this guy, the more she held on to him, even though she, for the most part agreed with our thinking. Imagine??? – anyway – We decided after many a heated debate, that we would allow her to make up her own mind and deal with whatever consequences developed. In a matter of probably less than a month this dude was history.

    Vote Obama this November – lol

    Matt,
    Man that is really low, cutting down a 10 yr old because she is Honest and Intelligent… We discuss politics, play intellectual games (and they earn their wins, i.e.; Scrabble, Upwords, Clue, etc.), I teach them Martial Arts & Swordfighting for Self Defense, I teach them to Respect Elders, and Many More Good Moral Habits! No Matter How Bad Things Get. My Kids Will Have A Better Chance Of Survival… And I believe the Best Gifts I could have given them is the Freedom of Creativity & the Ability to do Critical Thinking at very young ages (starting around seven years old). When my kids go to other kids houses to play, spend the night and stuff; the other parents ALWAYS Say How Wonderful & Respectful They Were. Some even say that they wish we could swap children, And that is All Them when they are away from Mom & Dad!!! My Children have been taught to Lead by Example, and Not Become Mindless Lemmings. *Note: We have Not had TV, Cable, or Satellite Television Services for Over a year, and Family Time has Never Been Better.
