Why Hillary Clinton is not ahead

Hillary Clinton can not put Trump away, because of her dishonest dealings throughout the years. Her attacks on Trump seem to lack teeth. Most voters don't care about:
  1. ...if Trump called a cute little fat girl fat.
  2. many times he has been married
  3. ...if he paid taxes or not, that is up to his accountants, and the IRS
  4. ...if he thinks Rosie O Donnell is a pig.
  5. ...if he went bankrupt. It is not against the law
  6. ...what he thought about Iraq 12 years ago. He was a civilian, and not privy to all the information
  7. ...who his contractors hire. He has no say in that, or he would be an employer
  8. ...if he likes John McCain (his comments were taken out of context anyway).
  9. ...where he thinks Obama was born
  10. ...if Al Sharpton likes him or not
  11. ...if he builds a wall or who gets mad about it or who pays for it
  12. ...what other countries think about Trump
  13. ...what people think about banning potential terrorists from the country
  14. ...if people don't like that he believes jobs are more important than more welfare
  15. ...if Hollywood people leave the country
People do care about:
  1. ...if Government officials sell access to their office
  2. ...if government contracts are awarded based on the amount of contributions
  3. ...if they ship money in secret to other countries
  4. ...if our country's secrets are not secure
  5. ...when the fix is in to protect candidates from criminal prosecution
  6. ...if the candidate is healthy enough to serve

National Health Insurance


           A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

           Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

           U.S.                      90%

            England               15%

            Canada                43%

           Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

Business experience in the White House

           The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is a real-life business, not a
government job.  

Here are the percentages.

           T. Roosevelt.................... 38%

           Taft.................................. 40%

            Wilson ........................... 52%

           Harding........................... 49%

           Coolidge......................... 48%

           Hoover ............................ 42%

           F. Roosevelt................... 50%

           Truman........................... 50%

           Eisenhower................ .... 57%

           Kennedy......................... 30%

           Johnson.......................... 47%

           Nixon............................... 53%

           Ford................................ 42%

          Carter............................. 32%

           Reagan........................... 56%

           GH Bush......................... 51%

            Clinton .......................... 39%

           GW Bush........................ 55%

Obama..................... 8%

           This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:
only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

           That's right!  Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?

           How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should have been in an employment line.

Welfare "salaries" by state

Can't  you hear students telling their teachers they want to be welfare recipients when they grow up ?


The Cato Institute released an updated 2014 study (original study in 1955) showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states.

According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.

Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.

Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:

1. Hawaii : $60,590

2. District of Columbia :$50,820

3. Massachusetts : $50,540

4. Connecticut : $44,370

5. New York : $43,700

6. New Jersey : $43,450

7. Rhode Island : $43,330

8. Vermont : $42,350

9. New Hampshire : $39,750

10. Maryland : $38,160

11. California : $37,160

12. Oregon : $34,300

13. Wyoming : $32,620

14. Nevada : $29,820

15. Minnesota : $29,350

16. Delaware : $29,220

17. Washington : $28,840

18. North Dakota : $28,830

19. Pennsylvania : $28,670

20. New Mexico : $27,900

21. Montana : $26,930

22. South Dakota : $26,610

23. Kansas : $26,490

24. Michigan : $26,430

25. Alaska : $26,400

26. Ohio : $26,200

27. North Carolina : $25,760

28. West Virginia : $24,900

29. Alabama : $23,310

30. Indiana : $22,900

31. Missouri : $22,800

32. Oklahoma : $22,480

33. Louisiana : $22,250

34. South Carolina : $21,91

As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession.

Hawaii, DC, and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there.

Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job ?

Time for a drastic change . . . America is virtually bankrupt.

Note that California is $18.50 an hour.

Are we nuts or what ? How do we undo this type of stupidity ?  This is crazy !

Salary of retired United States Presidents -- $180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate                                 -- $174,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of Speaker of the House                     -- $223,500 FOR LIFE

Salary of Majority/Minority Leader              -- $193,400 FOR LIFE

Average Salary of a teacher                            -- $40,065

Average Salary of Soldier, DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN   -- $38,000

Think about this !

Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year FOR LIFE

She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year. PLUS she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader, the fact that she has become rich while in office notwithstanding.

That's $803,700 Dollars a year  - - - - FOR LIFE  !

including FREE medical which is not available to us . . . the taxpayers.

She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out every year !

I think we found where the cuts should be made !

If you agree, do something with it.
Wake UP America !

Unless you really don't care that your country is bankrupt at the likes of these people !

Lists: Things we trust more than Hillary Clinton

Album Review: Softengine – We Created The World

Album Review

Band: Softengine
Album: We Created The World
Year: 2014

Softengine is a Finnish alternative rock band that represented Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark, with their song "Something Better". They released their debut album We Created the World in October 2014. 

They look like a boy band and these guys are all youngsters but this is a great debut album. Nearly every song is really good. It does lack a huge song that you can’t get out of your head but consistency counts too. The songs tend to build in complexity and intensity to a big chorus. Sound like something you might hear about The Killers, huh? Softengine compares to them or maybe 30 Seconds To Mars. The singer’s voice reminds me of Brendon Urie of Panic At The Disco! If you like those bands, surely you would like this.

Here is the list:
1.             Our New Age ★★
1.             This a whiny intro-song that is unnecessary.
2.             Broken Reflection ★★★
    1. This could be a Panic At The Disco! song
3.             Yellow House ★★★
    1. One of the singles
4.             Phone Call From Unknown ★★★
5.             The Sirens ★★★
6.             What If I? ★★
1.             Yeah, kinda whiny but it is ok
7.             Narcissus ★★★
8.             Something Better ★★★
    1. Probably the best song here
9.             In Disarray ★★★
10.          Circle ★★
11.          Our Life, Our Love ★★★

Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army

A boy named Harold

Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him.

Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward. And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?

Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors.

It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of general and flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a major general killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.

While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The vice president wasn't there either. Neither was the secretary of defense. Flags were not even lowered to half-staff.

Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was at best a thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone.

Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown's funeral! Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.

When Margaret Thatcher, one of America's staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan's partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.

When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House. 

But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, Obama ordered all flags be flown at half mast. And, then Muhammad Ali.

There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.

This pretty much summarizes how Obama and most liberals view the US military. 


No wonder most "REAL" Americans hold Obama in such contempt, especially members of our Military.

And the only difference between Obama and Hillary is that she doesn't play golf.
