Goodbye Middle Class

[Flash-forward to 2015 >>] We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year. Let that number sink in for a moment.

A More Prosperous Time – 60 years ago!

[Flash-forward to 2015 >>]   We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percentof all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year. Let that number sink in for a moment.

You can’t support a middle-class family in America today on just $2,500 a month – especially after taxes are taken out. And yet, more than half of all workers in this country make less than that each month. In order to have a thriving middle-class, you have got to have an economy that produces lots of middle-class jobs, and that simply is not happening in America today.

You can find the report that the Social Security Administration just released right here

A.H. Trimble - Emergency preparedness information for disasters and grid-down

AHTrimble header image

              { written Tuesday 10/20/2015 }

AHTrimble.com is a prepper website.

Well, more accurately…it is a website dedicated to providing people with emergency preparedness information. And that emergency preparedness information is applicable to emergencies, disasters, and grid-down events.

I hope that is pretty straightforward.

However, you will notice that I produce a lot of seemingly non-preparedness articles. Let me share with you that; first, I consider those articles to be directly related to emergency preparedness. Second, I think there is considerable value to those articles when viewed in a larger context.

I have various on-going “series” of articles that show up on the site from time to time:

  1. Things that make my head explode
  2. Interesting events in US history
  3. Economic Warning!
  4. Heads up!

At first glance you might wonder why I divert to those various seemingly non-prepper topics. But, I see it as one in the same; or, at least part…

As Reported By Brendan Bordelon for National Review:

In a press release sent to reporters late on Tuesday, Judicial Watch announced its intent to file a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against NARA for withholding an indictment written by Hickman Ewing, Jr., the deputy independent counsel and prosecutor investigating Whitewater, in 1996. The agency admitted it had found the records in March 2015 but is withholding the documents, claiming their release would constitute an unwarranted invasion of Clinton’s privacy.

“Judicial Watch has confirmed the existence of draft indictments of Hillary Clinton for her lies and obstruction in the Whitewater bank-fraud investigation,” the group’s president Tom Fitton wrote in the statement. “The Obama administration is refusing to release these records out of concern for Hillary Clinton’s privacy. Hillary Clinton’s privacy cannot be allowed to trump the public’s interest in knowing more about whether she obstructed justice and lied to a federal grand jury.”

USS Theodore Roosevelt Navel Station Norfolk

Big Stick Blog

INDIAN OCEAN (October 22, 2015)– This October, Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN71) will celebrate many birthdays with cake and festivities on the aft mess deck as they have every month since going on deployment in March. However, this month holds a special place for two birthdays that all Sailors aboard the ship celebrate. Oct. 25 will mark the 29th anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Theodore Roosevelt while Oct. 27 is the 157th birthday of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States and the ship’s namesake.

“I think it would be nice if people took the time to learn about Theodore Roosevelt because I think most people would find something interesting or relatable about him,” said Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Brian Flood, a Naval Heritage Coordinator for the ship’s enlisted surface warfare program.

There are certainly volumes of literature written about Theodore…

Rearranging the Deck Chairs on the Titanic

On the Democrat side we are witnessing the Clinton restoration and America is heading for a sequel to the Golden Nineties when character didn’t matter and White House interns were fair game. Hillary, after her original courageous testimony concerning Benghazi summed it up in “At this point what does it matter?” continues doing her Whitewater stonewalling routine to the applause of her devotees.

The handwriting is on the wall and we may have truly reached the tipping point where whoever wins the Democrat primaries wins the election. Eighteen States have voted Democrat in six consecutive elections with 242 electoral votes. University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato said the hurdle for Republicans doesn’t look any better if you count the underlying votes by citizens, not just the electoral results. “Democrats have also won the popular vote in five of the last six presidential contests,” Sabato said. “The demographic shifts heading to mid-century are all pro-Democratic.”

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

Last week I offered five simple solutions that could turn this ship around.

First, jettison the Empire to save the Republic

Second, declare our energy independence.

Third, end the de facto amnesty.

Fourth, end the centrally planned welfare state.

Fifth, grow the economy instead of the bureaucracy to bring back prosperity, opportunity, and hope.

Does anyone realistically think the two headed leviathan in Washington will implement any of them?  No matter who is elected the bureaucracy will maintain full speed ahead into the iceberg of collapse.  In other words these fixes may be easy to propose however they are impossible to implement given the current toxic climate in Chicago on the Potomac.

Look at the Planned Parenthood scandal for an example of how degraded our society has become.  Secretly produced videos clearly show Planned Parenthood leaders laughing and joking about harvesting the organs of babies and selling them for profit. …
