Hillary and Co. are in full court cover up mode. For five long weeks they went out of their way to advance a knowingly false narrative without either concern for or outrage over "four dead Americans" (You know, Hillary, they do have names: Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods). Hillary in particular will hide her negligence, incompetence and disdain for the truth behind the dead bodies of Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods for as long as it takes.
0bama is a war criminal who signs executive orders that result in the WEEKLY "collateral damage" deaths of defenseless African and Middle Eastern children - none of them White, by the way - via drone bombings. Hillary's negligence and disregard for the officially documented security concerns of American military and diplomatic personnel in a known hotbed of Islamic extremism overseas caused their senseless deaths, despite the soon-to-be former Secretary of State's shrill rhetoric and tone during last week's congressional hearings on the Benghazi massacre.
The 0bama/Hillary media sycophants as well as their mindless enablers on the ground are not interested in the truth if it makes politicians like Hillary and 0bama look like the negligent and incompetent liars that they are. We have come along way from Watergate, a cover up where no Americans were murdered and at a time when citizens, politicians and the media as a whole knew better than to run cover for the President of the United States or members of his Cabinet who were engaged in perjury and obstruction of justice.

All of the political posturing to avoid blame for a potentially self-induced recession resulted in$600 billion in tax hikes over 10 years and little to no spending cuts. The $60 billion a year in targeted taxes on “the rich” is merely a drop in the bucket against annual trillion-dollar deficits. The big loser in the “fiscal deal” was the generation that will spend their lives paying down tragically enormous levels of public debt. This debt payment burden will be so large in a few years that the future economy will be slower, the Debt-Paying Generation’s lifetime earnings will be smaller, and the quality of this generation’s life will be lower than any prior generation.
The name “Generation Y” has been given to the generation of young working adults under 35 who have been hit the hardest by the crippled job market. This generation of workers faces a bleak future that will most likely be “permanently depressed” by economic policies fabricated for their rhetorical qualities rather than their merits in producing economic opportunity and upward mobility. Since 2007, the average income for those aged 25–34 has fallen 8.2 percent—a decline twice as large as the 3.9 percent decline for the rest of the adult population. Even now, unemployment for those aged 20–24 and 25–34 remains at 13.7 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively—a stark contrast to the 6.1 percent unemployment rate for the rest of adults. [More ...]
Will these fools ever realize they voted themselves into an irrevocable state of permanent economic depression and government dependency as the norm? I mean, if they are clueless now, what hope is there that they will come to the understanding that they gave political power to the ideological thugs and political goons responsible for their own economic misery in the near future?

Businesses have been waiting to see whether a second Obama administration will encourage the economy. During the fiscal-cliff negotiations, however, the president made clear that his goal isn't to get business going again but instead to expand government and redistribute income. He offered no real spending cuts and instead used the year-end deadline to divide America into classes—to the point of campaigning on New Year's Eve against higher earners. Though the president talks about fairness, his policies penalize profit and investment. This hurts aspiring Americans more than it hurts those who have already made it.
The more I educate and inform myself, the more distrustful I become of politicians of all stripes. The more ignorant, uninformed and unwilling to divest themselves of tried and proven policies those who place their faith in government become, the more foolish they look.

It was a matter of time but it's finally happened. The statists' obeisance to government has reached such a low point that they are now reduced to affirming with religious fervor that skyrocketing deficits, unsustainable debt, confiscatory taxes and the growing welfare dependence mentality don't matter because ... wait for it ... America is "too big to fail."
