Are you better now than you were 4 years ago?

Rate this post

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! 😀

  1. 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??

  2. 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!

  3. 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 country has fallen into an abyss and that may be even more damaging than our economic woes.

        Thank you Thank you!! I want my country back too! And I appreciate the time and effort you have put into this website! It’s wonderful….and….btw…the recipes look super delicious…I’m going to try most of them!! I just don’t understand why some people on the left can’t see what’s going on around them! My step-son is furious with me because I won’t agree with him on his “love” for Obama. Needless to say…we’re not talking. I’m hoping after this election that he will see the truth. I pray every night that God will open people’s minds and hearts to see the truth and that they will vote for the right person…Romney and Ryan. I love listening to Ryan speak. I want to go see the movie 2016. Hoping this weekend to go see it. Btw, you must be a Lord of the Rings fan! 🙂 So is my husband. I have my big girl pants on and am willing, ready and able to fight the good fight for our freedom!! I love this site!!

  5. Welcome FLO, glad to have a fellow conservative patriot visit the site.

Thanks for all your hard work getting out the facts! BTW my real name is Sally, but you can call me Flo! 🙂 Just don’t call me a dim a rat!! hee hee

  6. 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
