    What do they expect? Indicators are the economy is tanking. The economy was such that young men are living in their parents basements. They have been programed to be lousy fathers and husbands. Marriage has been cheapened to the point that a woman does not expect the father to help raise a child. Single mothers do not want to spend the days waiting in food lines carrying a child. It is common sense that birth rates are falling. That everything for the 1% is biting them where it hurts. They asked for everything they get. I don't have a dog in the race, to old to raise children. The campaigns for the government to raise children is a complete failure. In fact all of their programs are a complete failure because they worry about consequences after the horse left the barn.
  2. What women are supposed to spend their hard-earned money on: Hair. somehow a basic, low-maintenance, natural-color hairdo is never in style, because other women can't make money "doing" it for you... Nails: nail polish, glitter, acrylic nails, all that stuff is available at the dollar store (for <$1) if you want to bother with it, but somehow to be "in style" requires a sizable bi-weekly outlay of cash and a standing appointment with another, emotionally manipulative, hard-selling woman who takes sexual pleasure in "doing" other women's nails... Professional oil changes: you didn't realize you needed all kinds of maintenance like having your blinker fluid and muffler coolant replaced (the $150+ "upsell") but if you don't get it done now, man, you're not going to be able to drive your car next week.
  3. When Factory Jobs Vanish, Men Become Less Desirable Partners >>> The study finds that, as men’s economic prospects decline, they marry less frequently. Once, men had good earnings, especially when compared with women. But now these men don’t earn much more than women do, and so fewer people are getting married, and more children are being born out of wedlock. Children are much more likely to grow up in poverty in households headed by single mothers. >>> They found that manufacturing declines significantly affected the supply of what they termed “marriageable” men—men who are not drinking or using drugs excessively and who have a job. >>> This made the men less appealing to the women, the authors suggest—so there were fewer marriages. >>> Yet women didn’t give up on having babies entirely. Plenty of young women are still getting pregnant, but they’re no longer as likely to have married their partner when they do, the authors found. >>> “You don’t want to marry a man who is in all likelihood not economically viable, because it’s not a free lunch,” Autor said. ... These patterns seem to hinge on whether men are making more money than women, the authors found.
  4. Fleet of Presidential Choppers to cost $20 BILLION!!! You would think America didn’t have any economic troubles, and the government could waste whatever money it wanted to on anything. President Obama’s has ordered a fleet of 23 presidential helicopters — ObamaChoppers — that will cost taxpayers an incredible $20 billion. That’s $20,000,000,000,000.00. Although the program won’t deliver the ObamaChoppers until 2020 — typical military-industrial complex delays — they’re named after the president because he ordered them. It also was a no-bid contract. The U.S. government has been trying for decades—and burning through billions—to replace Marine One, the president’s helicopters. Will it finally get it right this time? Each helicopter will probably cost at least $400 million. The entire project, to build at least 23 helicopters, has been estimated to eventually cost between $10 billion to $17 billion. By comparison, the project could pay the combined defense budgets of Finland, Norway, and Sweden for one year ($16.9 billion). The passengers for this enormously expensive helicopter fleet? The President of the United States and his entourage. The first president to fly regularly in helicopters was Dwight Eisenhower. Eisenhower faced a two-hour commute to and from his summer home in Rhode Island, a commute that could be shaved down considerably if taken by helicopter. In these early days of the Cold War the president needed to be moved around quickly—the president could not be stuck on a ferry for an hour in case the Soviet Union launched a nuclear attack. The South Lawn of the White House was designated as the official presidential helicopter landing pad, and official flights to Andrews Air Force Base began. A Marine Corps helicopter squadron, HMX-1 (“The Knighthawks”) is responsible for flying and maintaining the fleet of presidential helicopters. The current Marine One helicopters are derivatives of the Sikorsky Sea King helicopter, which was phased out of the U.S. military during the 1990s. Those currently flying were built somewhere around 1975, making them only 14 years younger than President Obama himself. In 2002, the U.S. government solicited proposals for replacing the Sea Kings with a new, modern helicopter. In the wake of 9/11, with concerns about terrorist attacks against the president, the call went out for a helicopter that could fend off a terrorist shoulder-fired surface to air missile and keep functioning in the wake of a nuclear attack on Washington, D.C. In 2005, the Department of Defense announced that the team of Lockheed Martin and the Anglo-Italian helicopter giant AgustaWestland had won the contract to build 28 presidential helicopters. The helicopters would be known as the VH-71 Kestrel. (The “V” stands for “VIP Transport”) The tab for a new helicopter fleet will likely top $20 billion, including $3 billion spent between 2005 and 2009 on a program that was later canceledThe new contract will buy 23 SIkorsky helicopters at an estimated cost of $400 million each – about the cost of the Air Force One 747 jet Duplicate choppers fly as decoys whenever a president takes off from the South Lawn; others are flown to Obama's travel destinations in advance Just one company bid on the project, raising questions about whether the Navy got a fair price A former senior Pentagon official said for the price, the new aircraft should have a 'solid gold toilet ... except that it would add too much weight' The Department of Defense awarded a contract on Wednesday to a Connecticut company that will build a fleet of helicopters to replace the Marine One fleet that ferries U.S. presidents short distances. The contract, given to Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, will cost an initial $1,244,677,064 'for the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the Presidential Helicopter Replacement program. ' For that price the U.S. Navy will get six test aircraft and all the necessary research & development. The Pentagon made a similar attempt to replace the aging fleet of Sikorsky choppers, spending $3.2 billion on a landing pad to nowhere. Adding in the likely $17 billion price tag for the new project – a number estimated by the Congressional Budget Office – the $20 billion total makes the fleet the most expensive helicopters ever built.

  6. So we all know about the government shutdown ... And we know about the debt we are in, yes, mostly to china. But we owe money to other countries as well. I think our days as a country are either limited or have already been over. We know how we do not have any money what so ever. But did you know Oct. 17, if the shutdown keeps going on like this, we are no longer going to have the "important functions" operating. (Military, police, etc.) We are 14 Trillion dollars into debt. (or more) And last year the government carelessly passed budgets on "Treadmills for Shrimp" and "Cow Farts". (I wish I was joking) Any way, the shutdown might be more than just a shut down. I think congress has given up on us. I think that we no longer have a government, whatever we have left is trying to delay chaos. Think about it, if I am right, once word gets out that the government technically does not exist, it is going to be a free for all. The good thing about them owing money to many different countries is also a bad thing. They are going to fight over this large piece of land. There is going to be a war. We the people against the government, against each other, against ourselves, against the world. Hell on earth. All because one guy could not pay his bills on time. (the USA)
