…that’s right kiddies.

The number of the day is 1.7.
What, pray tell does that number mean?

Well, let me put it this way. That number means America is screwed.

That number by itself is insignificant, so let me throw in another number; 1.

1.7 to 1, to be precise.
That “my friends” is the number of takers vs. makers.
Yes. In that order.

Here’s a break down of the numbers:

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

Go read the rest.

…comes from Alan West in reference to Dear Leader.

“If President Obama had told the American people the truth, and if the liberal progressive media had not hidden the truth, would he have been elected President in 2012? When you consider the monumental lies surrounding Obamacare, Benghazi, and the fact that al Qaida is not decimated or on the run, if the truth had been told, the election results could not have been the same. Assuming of course we have integrity in the election process, but that’s a different story…”

…this is a great video with Megan Kelly and Ben Shapiro talking about the morons at Rolling Stone and their “income inequality” meme that you will not hear the end of until after the election, so let’s get out ahead of the stupid.

Lesbian dance theory? Don’t worry, you’ll get the reference when you watch the video.

…once again, Bill Whittle is all over it.

…sure does explain a lot about liberals and their punitive motivations.

JFK Death Spawned ‘Punitive Liberalism’

By George Will

“He didn’t even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights. It had to be some silly little Communist.”   — Jacqueline Kennedy, Nov. 22, 1963
 She thought it robbed his death of any meaning. But a meaning would be quickly manufactured to serve a new politics. First, however, an inconvenient fact — Oswald — had to be expunged from the story.
 
So, just 24 months after the assassination, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., the Kennedys’ kept historian, published a thousand-page history of the thousand-day presidency without mentioning the assassin.
 
The transformation of a murder by a marginal man into a killing by a sick culture began instantly — before Kennedy was buried. The afternoon of the assassination, Chief Justice Earl Warren ascribed Kennedy’s “martyrdom” to “the hatred and bitterness that has been injected into the life of our nation by bigots.”
 
The next day, James Reston, the New York Times luminary, wrote in a front-page story that Kennedy was a victim of a “streak of violence in the American character,” but especially of “the violence of the extremists on the right.”

Obama to hammer home shutdown message at construction company –

President Obama will hold a series of events in the coming days to highlight the consequences of the government shutdown.

The events will hammer home the White House’s argument that it is Republicans who are preventing the government from reopening, White House aides say. They will also portray Speaker John Boehner R-Ohio as unwilling to buck a “faction” of the Republican caucus.

On Thursday, the president will appear at a local construction company that has benefited from federal loans. While there, he will highlight the real-world consequences of a shutdown, while casting blame for the crisis at the feet of House leadership.

…granted, there’s plenty of blame to share, but I lay this squarely on the shoulder of Obama. He and his Democrat Party wanted exactly this, betting on the media locking their collective lips squarely on Obama’s ass. The level of ass sucking by the media is unbelievable. They are a disgrace to the profession of reporting the news. They’ve become Obama’s personal propaganda arm, and the Congress wants to make sure that they are the “only ones” authorized to be journalists. What an absolute failure of government, and the liberal media again, give democrats a pass.

It was the Democrats who held a super majority for two years and still have yet to even pass a budget hello!. It was the Democrats who then wasted $800B on Obama’s “Stimu-less” despite 80% of the people opposing it. It was the Democrats who then cut the military budget by $400 Billion, or 25% of their operating budget during war time, in 2010. It was the Democrats who then passed Obamacare behind closed doors, and told us to pass it to find out what’s in it, despite the American people opposing it. Make no mistake, the Democrats own the Fiscal Cliff and just like Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, Bill Clinton & George W. Bush—Obama will also get credit for the economy & tax rate under his watch.

Republicans have only one choice: to hold him accountable.

Day 2 of the government shutdown, and look out the window. The sun is still shining, and the sky is still blue. The birds are chirping.

The Great Government Shutdown is not that big a deal, even for the government. The federal civilian workforce includes 2.9 million bureaucrats. Out of that, only 800,000 are being furloughed, or just 27%. Even for these workers, the shutdown just amounts to a paid vacation for a few days.

Just like the overballyhood sequester, average Americans won’t notice any change in their lives at all. But for those you who are offended and indignant by the shutdown, or who know somebody who is, I can tell you how to fix it.The Real Reason for the Shutdown.

The government is shut down for only one reason. Barack Obama and the Democrats wanted a shutdown. That is because Obama and the Democrats are so certain that the public will blame the Republicans. And they are certain of that because your dopey neighbors keep telling pollsters that the Republicans are at fault.

Liberalism Radicalized: The Sexual Revolution, Multiculturalism, and the Rise of Identity Politics

By Kevin Slack

Abstract

Beginning in the 1950s, a more radical form of liberalism emerged in the academy that sowed the seeds for the sexual revolution and multiculturalism. Neo-progressivism mobilized the New Left of the 1960s, transformed American politics, and continues to dominate the cultural and political conversation today. It combines what neo-progressives call personal politics the idea that American citizens have a right to all forms of self-expression and cultural politics the idea that cultural groups are entitled to special status together as the twin pillars of a new identity politics. As a result, citizens today have more, not less, freedom from government in the realm of sexual expression, and the American electorate has been fractured into various groups.

In the past two decades, a new, more radical form of progressivism has taken over American social and political life, even finding its way into the White House. Fresh instances of this new progressivism appear every day. For example:

  • At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, progressives officially supported same-sex marriage as a civil right and unofficially rejected the word God in their platform;

  • President Barack Obama, labeled the “First Gay President” by Newsweek for his support of gay rights, has instructed the Attorney General of the United States not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act; and

  • Vice President Joe Biden has said that discrimination against transgendered persons is the “civil rights issue of our time.”[1]

Sooo, how are those cuts going to be worked out in the Army?

Here’s a good clue.

Just like the last time a Democrat gutted the military, it’s going to be very, very painful.

This may even prevent the US from projecting its power abroad. That’s what they want you say? Maybe…

Unit overhaul: 10,000 soldiers must move

The Army will inactivate 194 units as part of a massive organizational overhaul slated to take place over the next four years.

The cuts are part of a comprehensive effort to shrink the active-duty force by 80,000 soldiers — bringing the force from a wartime high of about 570,000 to 490,000 — and reorganize the Army’s brigade combat teams.

On June 25, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno announced the Army will cut 10 BCTs and reorganize the rest by adding a third maneuver battalion to most of the infantry and armored BCTs and boosting the engineer capabilities in each.

Under the Budget Control Act, the Army is required to cut$170 billion between now and 2020.

The Army also will relocate, convert and move various detachment- and platoon-level units through corps and component command headquarters, said Army spokesman William Layer.

There also are plans to “adjust” personnel levels at Army schools, garrison headquarters and training facilities at 36 installations. This includes increasing the number of personnel assigned to the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention program, he said.

Our Republic will cease to exist if this isn’t stopped. This is not an idle threat. Our freedoms are at stake here. America will fracture over this.

Passage of the Amnesty Bill Will Spell the End of Our Republic

Guest post by James Simpson

On Monday, June 24, 2013, the U.S. Senate passed a cloture motion (which ends debate) on the Schumer-Corker-Hoeven Amendment to the Gang of Eight’s horrifying illegal alien amnesty bill – mislabeled “immigration reform.”

The true purpose of this amnesty proposal is to capture future votes for the Democratic Party. Those who do not acknowledge that blatantly obvious fact either suffer from some debilitating mental illness or are working for the other side.

On rare occasions, even the Left admit the objective. Eliseo Medina, the honorary Chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, and International Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), said in 2008:

…If we reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. Can you imagine if we have …even two out of three, if we get 8 million new voters… we will create a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle.

The “governing coalition for the long term” refers of course to the “permanent progressive majority” Democrats have fantasized about for decades.
