Shocker: States that voted for Obama have most income inequality

. . . and of all those red states, Washington, DC is the most unequal!

I’m shocked! Just shocked!

Frances Martel reports for Breitbart, March 10, 2014:

The top five states with the highest income inequality rates all voted to reelect President Barack Obama, though no state boasted a higher rate of inequality than Washington, D.C. This is according to a study released this week by MoneyRates.com.

The study used data from the Bureau of Labor statistics to measure how many times more money the top-earning income bracket of a state made than bottom earners. Researchers compared the top 25th percentile earner to the bottom 25th percentile earner and divided the sums into each other, then ranked states by number. California, in which a top 25th percentile earner makes 2.55 times more than a bottom 25th percentile earner, is by far the most unequal state, followed by New York, New Jersey, Michigan, and President Obama’s home state of Illinois.

In Washington, D.C., however, a top 25th percentile earner makes 2.6 times the amount of money a bottom 25th percentile earner makes, which represents the biggest gap in the nation. Maryland and Virginia both make the top ten group of biggest gaps in income, and Maryland experienced the largest gap increase in the past decade of any state: 12.05%. Breitbart News has previously reported that eight of the 13 wealthiest counties in the U.S.A. are in the D.C. region. Texas and Louisiana are the only red states in the top ten.

The state with the least income inequality is South Dakota, where a worker in the top 25th percentile makes only 1.89 times the money someone in the bottom 25th percentile makes. Maine and Vermont, both blue states, follow suit. Iowa and New Hampshire, at seven and eight on the list, round out the blue states in the study with lowest income gaps. Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, and Nebraska also are among the top ten most equal.

Richard Barrington, the researcher who published the report, explained on MoneyRates.com that the research points to two findings: Democrats are more sensitive to income inequality because it is more prevalent in states that elect them, and economic inequality is not necessarily a bad thing for the state’s economy. Barrington explains that, since “people in states who supported Obama are experiencing more income inequality than people in other states,” and those people also tend to vote Democrat, the Democratic Party has an incentive to vocalize concerns that Republican constituents deal with less often.

Barrington them completely rejects what those Democrats are arguing: that income inequality is a problem that must be solved. “[D]ifferences in income are a natural condition of a capitalist society,” Barrington writes, adding that the study corroborates the claim that “incentives created by income inequality make the economy more dynamic,” and that “a reasonable degree of income inequality is actually good for a state’s prosperity.” He notes that the median worker in more unequal states makes more money than the median worker in other states.

Opponents of the President’s crusade against income equality have long argued that wealth redistribution solves no economic problems, using evidence from the President’s own policies to prove that policies that require wasteful government spending actually increase the gap between the rich and poor. Government spending has caused an internal devaluation of the dollar that suppresses wages. Pro-corporation tax loopholes and globalization have done even more to increase the wealth gap, increasing corporate profits while tearing the floor out from under the American laborer. Economic policies are not the only thing coming out of the Obama administration that has contributed to income inequality; a study by the union Unite Here concluded that the Affordable Care Act will actively make income inequality worse by cutting wages and weakening employers.

Nonetheless, the White House is determined to make income inequality a pivotal issue for years to come, with President Obama calling it “the defining challenge of our time.” Press Secretary Jay Carney denied that the Obama administration’s policies damaged income inequality when confronted with the question, suggesting instead that the uptick in the wage gap began under President George W. Bush. Not all on staff stuck to the message so strictly; one pollster publicly described income inequality as an issue that was “a bit overhyped.”

Hollywood Hypocrisy: Leftist “celebrities” who send their sons to military schools

Leftwing Hollyweirdos have only contempt and hatred for what’s best about the United States — the Founding Fathers and their ideological legacy; capitalism and the free market that foster economic prosperity everywhere in the world, including countries like China which, ironically, are ruled by the communist party; and the best and most powerful military in the world.

And yet, when they find themselves unable to cope with unruly and out-of-control sons, guess where the “celebrities” send them!

To the “oppressive” military schools and academies to learn self-discipline and order.

What rank hypocrites!

Rosie O’Donnell

Parker & Rose O'DonnellParker & Rosie O’Donnell

O’Donnell’s adopted son Parker made the decision to go to military school on his own, to the dismay and in spite of his America-hating mom. O’Donnell said:

“How do you really piss off your really left wing and peace-loving mother? You join the military. Parker was like, ‘Mother, I’d like to serve the Nation.’ I’m like crying, ‘Serve me instead!’ … He chose on his own. He actually begged to go to a military academy. And I was like two years of ‘No way.’ Truth is, since he was a little boy, that’s his area of interest. The same way I love Streisand and Bette Midler and entertainment, he can tell you any general in any war, what kind of tanks they had, what the battles were like. So I finally gave in and truthfully, he’s excelling and he’s very happy.

Cher & Elijah Blue AllmanCher & Elijah Blue Allman

From an account in the National Enquirer:

Elijah Blue Allman is the son of Cher and rocker Gregg Allman. Elijah and Cher weren’t close as he grew up. After attending boarding schools and military school, Elijah formed a rock band but soon got hooked on smoking heroin, painkillers, and alcohol. He’s been in and out of rehab “several times” but claims to have last used heroin in autumn 2008.

Elijah and Cher are presently estranged from and not even speaking to each other. Cher refused to even attend her son’s recent wedding.

Madonna

Rocco Richie & MadonnaRocco Ritchie & Madonna

Madonna reportedly is considering sending her “wild-child son,” Rocco, to military school after he was snapped brandishing a booze bottle.

Madonna’s ex, British director Guy Ritchie, reportedly hit the roof when Madonna posted a photo on social media of their 13-year-old son Rocco holding a gin bottle next to friends holding vodka bottles. An “insider” says Guy thinks Rocco is completely out of control, but Madonna was at her wits’ end over how to rein him in.

Knowing that Rosie O’Donnell had some problems with her kids, Madonna called Rosie for advice. Rosie told Madonna she’d sent her eldest, 18-year-old son Parker, to Valley Forge Military Academy for high school, and it was the smartest move she’d ever made, according to the source. Parker went from being sullen and belligerent to respectful and motivated in no time.

The insider says, “Madonna told Guy that Rosie suggested sending Rocco to military school, and he’s all for it. He’s fed up with Madonna’s lackadaisical parenting style and wants Rocco to have more structure.”

Attention Occutards!

Occutard: Spoiled brats that blame hard-working, successful people for magically causing the failures of their own lives. Occutards have been coddled by their parents from birth and given everything they want without being expected to work for it. Now grown, they expect the government to arrive in place of their parents and provide everything their hearts desire for free. Furthermore, they believe that camping out in front of a random bank/government office will accomplish this goal. Can be heard regurgitating Marxist slogans, demonizing “the rich”, whining about the inequities of life and condemning “evil corporations” for destroying their “fair chance”. Occutard camps allow them to return to their natural state of not bathing, defecating/fornicating in public and participating in drum circles. Their ultimate goal is to create the occutard utopia in which the nanny-state plunders money from the productive members of society and “redistributes” it to them, removing any necessity to ever work.

King County adopts $125 fine for outdoor urination, defecation

Seattle Times: Seventeen cities in King County have local laws against public urination and defecation, but until today, no county-wide law against it existed.

To cover the unincorporated, rural parts of the county, the Metropolitan King County Council has adopted legislation to make public urination and defecation a Class 2 infraction that could result in fines of up to $125, according to a news release.

The ordinance applies to people over the age of 12, and makes any area “generally visible to public view,” such as “streets, sidewalks, bridges, alleys, plazas, parks, driveways, parking lots, vacant land and buildings open to the general public, and the doorways and entrances to buildings or dwellings and the grounds enclosing them” off-limits, regardless of how badly you have to go.

“I believe that this bill is a very common-sense solution to an issue that has been challenging the communities in King County’s unincorporated areas,” Councilmember Kathy Lambert, the ordinance’s sponsor, said in a statement. “It is an additional tool that the King County Sheriff’s Office can use to encourage people to modify their behavior. I introduced this legislation after hearing from many concerned citizens, and I’m very pleased that the Council has taken seriously its responsibility to govern in the unincorporated areas.”

Note to Occutards: Keep you pants up!

Today’ Lesson: Class Warfare. It’s Really Quite Simple

And we must give credit to the man (Satan’s Spawn) Who has made all this possible. Just think in 5 short years he has set back race relations 50 years, destroyed the futures of at least 2 generations of Black Americans. Yes you know who, So let’s give it up for President Lucy.   

President Lucy.

President Lucy.

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And the folks who are paying for the free stuff  want the free stuff to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

Now the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff  that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So the people who are GETTING the free stuff  have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff   by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
We have let the 
free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.

Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?
The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
The United States officially became a Republic in 
1776236 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.
ELECTION 2014 IS COMING
A Nation of Sheep Breeds a Government of Wolves!

I’M 100% for PASSING THIS ON !!!
For all our sake 
PLEASE Take a Stand!!! 

Obama: Gone!

Borders: Closed!

Language: English only

Culture: God, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!

Another Obama scandal: State Dept covers up employees’ prostitution and drug ring

CBS News: U.S. State Department Cover-Ups Range From Prostitution Charges to Drug Rings

http://washington.cbslocal.com           June 10, 2013 9:44 AM

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Uncovered documents show the U.S. State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal behavior ranging from sexual assaults to an underground drug ring.

CBS News reports that is has unearthed documents from the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), an internal watchdog agency, that implicate the State Department in a series of misconducts worldwide.

The memo, reported by CBS News’ John Miller, cited eight specific examples, including allegations that a State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” with foreign nationals hired as embassy guards and the charge and that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the report says was “endemic.”

Former State Department internal investigator Aurelia Fedenisn told CBS News, “We also uncovered several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”

Often times, other DSS agents were simply told to back off of investigations of high-ranking State Department members. Fedenisn told CBS that “hostile intelligence services” allow criminal behavior to continue.

In one such cover-up, investigators were told to stop probing the case of a U.S. ambassador who was suspected of patronizing prostitutes in a public park. The memo states that the ambassador was permitted to return to his post despite having, “routinely ditched…his protective security detail” in order to “solicit sexual favors from prostitutes.”

A draft of the Inspector General’s report on the performance of the Diplomatic Security Service, obtained by CBS News, states, “Hindering such cases calls into question the integrity of the investigative process, can result in counterintelligence vulnerabilities and can allow criminal behavior to continue.”

Fedenisn was part of the team that drafted the whistleblower report, and CBS News reports that two hours after the charges were reported, investigators from the State Department’s Inspector General showed up at her door.

A statement to CBS News states, “It goes without saying that the Department does not condone interference with investigation by any of its employees.”

New York Police Confiscating Firearms from People Taking Anti-anxiety Medication

Yep folks inch by inch they are coming. Is anyone else besides me tired of playing by the rules? You know we’re the good guys and we don’t cheat.

Frankly I am so sick and friggen tired of it. They just trample EVERYTHING that is decent and right that is in this world. They lie, cheat , beat , and yes even kill for their agenda. How bout we start drawing a line in the sand and say you better not cross this or I’m gonna bop you UPSIDE the head. I’m sorry but

the marquis de queensbury rules simply don’t apply anymore.

I forget who said it But it went something like this.

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”  

This story grabs me by my gut and makes me want to hurl. HIPPA, Dr. Patient ——privacy, civil rights. Where is the outrage.?—————–

Government increases “onerous activity” to confiscate legal firearms.

The New York State Police are suspending the handgun permits of people in the state who are prescribed anti-anxiety medication, according to Jim Tresmond of the Tresmond Law Firm in Hamburg, New York. Tresmond Law specializes in firearm litigation.

“We are representing a client right now who is impacted by this onerous activity of the government,” Tresmond told WBEN, a news talk radio station in Buffalo, New York.

“We were flummoxed by this whole matter,” the attorney said. “The HIPPA act is supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening. It’s a gross invasion of our privacy rights.”

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Tresmond said the New York State Police are responsible for taking action against legal firearms owners. “Based on information the county received from the New York State Police, they’ve suspended the permits. The State Police instigates the proceedings.”

Section 9.46 of the NY SAFE Act of 2013 authorizes therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to report patients they determine may engage in conduct that may result in harm to self or others. If a determination is made that the person in question poses a threat, the provision permits the government to confiscate firearms. The provision is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment and the legal standard of probable cause.

Experts said many mental health providers will likely ignore the provision.

NY SAFE was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013, and was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo the same day.
