Here's just the first 16. It gets worse from there.



#1 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%231) In December 2008, 31.6 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, a new all-time record of 47.7 million Americans (http://www.fns.usda.gov/pd/34snapmonthly.htm) are on food stamps. That number has increased by more than 50 percent over the past four years, and yet the mainstream media still has the gall to insist that “things are getting better”.
#2 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%232) Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans (http://dailycaller.com/2012/12/09/food-stamp-use-reaches-another-high-in-september-47-7-million-participants/) was on food stamps. Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on food stamps.
#3 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%233) According to one calculation (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/23/Exclusive-Food-Stamp-Recipients-Outnumber-Populations-Of-24-States-Combined), the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
#4 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%234) According to one recent survey, 55 percent (http://money.cnn.com/2012/12/18/news/economy/government-entitlement-aid/index.html?iid=HP_LN) of all Americans have received money from a safety net program run by the federal government at some point in their lives.
#5 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%235) For the first time ever, more than a million (http://www.nlchp.org/view_release.cfm?PRID=148) public school students in the United States are homeless. That number has risen by 57 percent (http://www.nlchp.org/view_release.cfm?PRID=148) since the 2006-2007 school year.
#6 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%236) Median household income in the U.S. has fallen for four consecutive years (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/things-are-getting-worse-median-household-income-has-fallen-4-years-in-a-row). Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.
#7 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%237) Families that have a head of household under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent (http://lrfuller.wordpress.com/2012/10/10/the-generation-that-never-stood-a-chance/).
#8 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%238) The percentage of working age Americans with a job has been under 59 percent for 39 months in a row (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/unemployment-is-not-going-down-the-employment-rate-has-been-under-59-percent-for-39-months-in-a-row).
#9 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%239) In September 2009, during the depths of the last economic crisis, 58.7 percent (http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/data/EMRATIO.txt) of all working age Americans were employed. In November 2012, 58.7 percent (http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/data/EMRATIO.txt) of all working age Americans were employed. It is more then 3 years later, and we are in the exact same place.
#10 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2310) When you total up all working age Americans that do not have a job in America today, it comes to more than 100 million (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/there-are-100-million-working-age-americans-that-do-not-have-jobs).
#11 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2311) According to one recent survey, 55 percent (http://washingtonexaminer.com/55-percent-of-small-business-owners-would-not-start-company-today-blame-obama/article/2509069#.UGS10FG7lAy) of all small business owners in America “say they would not start a business today given what they know now and in the current environment.”
#12 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2312) The number of jobs at new small businesses continues to decline. According to economist Tim Kane (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/we-are-witnessing-the-death-of-small-business-in-america), the following is how the decline in the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration (http://www.hudson.org/files/publications/Kane--TheCollapseofStartupsinJobCreation0912web.pdf)…
Bush Sr.: 11.3
Clinton: 11.2
Bush Jr.: 10.8
Obama: 7.8
#13 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2313) The U.S. share of global GDP has fallen from 31.8 percent (http://acrossthestreetnet.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/the-cost-of-kidding-yourself/) in 2001 to 21.6 percent (http://acrossthestreetnet.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/the-cost-of-kidding-yourself/) in 2011.
#14 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2314) The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row (http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/06/a-look-behind-the-u-s-decline-in-global-competitiveness/).
#15 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2315) There are four major U.S. banks that each have more than 40 trillion dollars of exposure (http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-coming-derivatives-panic-that-will-destroy-global-financial-markets) to derivatives.
#16 (http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%2316) In 2000, there were more than 17 million (http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/data/MANEMP.txt) Americans working in manufacturing, but now there are less than 12 million (http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/data/MANEMP.txt).

Blame Bush X 74

Increase taxes massively and spend double that amount and let the next guy worry about the tab.

Yes, we can see how well that is working now, after four years of it.

It's 2035.

America has now been conservative-free for ten years. Thanks be to Obama I. The last of the 70, 80 and 90 year old conservatives have been quietly removed to camps in Alaska where no one has heard from them in years; they were fed three nutritious meals per day, provided Yoga, then visitors, then given a course in why they must go to sleep for their crimes. They were told their deaths were necessary so that the rest of society would not be impeded. Over seveal months, all the seniors were herded into a large, cavernous steel building and over a period of weeks, with big band music playing, were told to breath in . . .

Sex Fest 2035!

Similar to the Roman Colliseium, the festival centers around a massive orgy (based upon the return of the legions, bringing slaves and enemy booty), Sex Fest takes place each year, led by the Great Liberal Leaders, who take part. Sex Fest kicks off with 10,000 virgins slaughtered around the nation, the blood drained off and used as lubricant for the festival. There are no age requirements! Sex Fest is part of the Great Liberal Tradition of Letting Go, reaching one's true sexual potential, so that maturity is reached early. Each Sex Fest participant is given a participatory DVD whereby they return to their government-sponsored home (a dome, using non-fossil energy) where a goverment-based video camera maintains protection 24/7. From the moment you wake up, the video camera protects your life and allows the Great Liberal Leaders to monitor and assess your living standards andon some days, asking why haven't you masterbated today? Letting Go is coming up soon!

The Great Adoration
Religion, abolished in 2022, has been replaced with Adoration. The Great Liberal Leaders are adored monthly by the throngs (after the Sexual Advent) when the masses walk into the public square and adore the First Great Leader: Barack Obama I. His photo is broadcast onto the sky and everyone begins crying, wailing, holding their arms up, tears streaming down their faces in complete and utter sublimation to this Great Leader. Leader Obama was the first. He gave us this beautiful life. He is the God-Man. Obama. The First. Praise him. Bless him. Tonight, we will attend the Great Orgy and his photo will be placed on display so that when everyone reaches Blessed Orgasm (hopefully at the same time), we then reach Adoration. There is no greater feeling, than sexual release while worshiping the Man who gave us this So-great life!

In Obama's name we pray, Sex-Fest amen!

( Use protection folks! Obama I always asks that you wear the Great Liberal Leaders chosen condom: The Obama Great Release Condom, which gives support, and can now be picked up at all Sex Fest locations including Adoration Centers and Orgy Retail locations. $79.99 )

Wait until 4 years from now, today will be "the good old days".
