Are you better now than you were 4 years ago?

I woke up to the overnight alphabet networks all on script, blabbering that today is the first day of the Democratic National Convention and that the Dems’ message is that the POS should get another 4 years because Americans really are better off than we were in 2008. Never mind the fact that as the DNC begins, the national debt of the United States of America just hit the $16 TRILLION mark.

Or if we don’t feel we’re better off,  brainiac Nancy Pelosi tells us we’re at least better off than we WOULD HAVE BEEN if the POS hadn’t been elected 4 years ago. Did you get her amazing feat of counter-factual might-have-been logic? Me, neither. But then I’m not a brainiac!

FOTM is taking our own poll.

The first poll asks if you are financially better off today than you were 4 years ago. Being “financially better off” means the following:

  • Are you making more money than 4 years ago?
  • Do you have more in financial assets (savings, stocks, 401k/IRA/pension retirement funds) than 4 years ago?
  • Is your house worth more than 4 years ago?
  • Are your expenses for basic necessities (food, gas, housing, clothing) less than they were 4 years ago?
  • Do you pay less taxes than 4 years ago?

The second poll asks if you believe America is a better country than it was 4 years ago. By “a better country” is meant the following:

  • Americans have a greater sense of unity and brotherhood with each other.
  • Americans are more optimistic about our country’s future.
  • America is a stronger country than 4 years ago.
  • The world thinks better of America.
  • You believe your children and grandchildren will have a better life than yours.

Thank you for taking this survey! 😀

I just don’t think I can make myself watch it; I don’t want to hurl. Hardnox reminded me of a saying my brother has. “You can chrome a turd, but all you’ve got is shiny shit.” Ain’t it the truth??

Yup, turd coated with sugar is still just a sugar-coated turd.

I haven’t had a pay raise since 2008 (in fact, making less money now); house value, savings, and investments in the tank, and paying more for electricity, gas, food, ammo, etc.

But hey, at least Government Motors is alive and well!

We are retired and on a fixed income. Our home is paid for but its value is about $100,000 less than it was five years ago. Our 401 lost one third of its value. I know that we are still far better off than most but we have always been middle class and always will be. Our utilities, gasoline and food prices are all higher. Our property taxes are two and a half times greater than the real estate tax for a comparable home was ten years ago. Oh no, we are not better off. Spiritually, emotionally and morally our… Read more »

Perhaps the grand finale of the DNC will be the entrance of the Keystone Cops who will cart all the ne’er do wells off in a paddywagon. Those watching will think it’s just the Democratic response to the Clint Eastwood chair episode and wait for the curtains to part again and there will be the ne’er do gooders all saying, “just kidding”. After about an hour or so the atmosphere will become euphoric, “It’s over, it’s over”
:Free at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone got any better ideas?
