Obama and Boehner meeting privately for "Fiscal Cliff" resolutions. Let's discuss... 2 men deciding U.S. future? Entitlements, what they are and are not. History: Banks entitled not people.

Over and over again we are hearing the words "Fiscal Cliff."   So funny how those words sprang up immediately after the election.  Yet during debates and pre-election coverage those two words were not formed together and that was less than one month ago.   Now all we hear are those two words in the media and from the government. 

We are hearing how Obama and Boehner are meeting in private to hammer out a resolution of the "Fiscal Cliff."

One side wants entitlement cuts and the other side wants raised taxes from what we hear.

Well lets first get one thing straight.  There are not really "two sides" there is one game being played with two teams that are stationed as "players" for the public.   The two teams are there to divide the public that is watching the game.  But when the public is not viewing the inside players lounge, they are not seeing how those two teams are actually one, the drama is just for show.   It is just like wrestling or a reality show.  It is all set up just for the "drama and show" of it. 

I have said this over and over again.  The left and right are there to make sure the public/citizens are divided and hate each other for what side they are on.   This way they get away with whatever they want to do.

Even the USA Wrestling organization has created a logo that shows the country divided with red and blue.  Yet wrestling is a laid out planned "who will win and who will lose" sport/game.   Doesn't that tell you something right there?  Can't you see it.....



Haven't you ever noticed no matter how much yelling and screaming ahead of any government laws to be voted on the "two teams" always get together and vote against the American public and do what is worst for the public?   Just think about past bills..... NDAA (govt. can kill/detain U.S. citizen on U.S. soil or anywhere now), Stimulus (2009), Bank bailout (TARP), etc.

Remember how much yelling and screaming of those bills, there was ahead of time by both "teams", yet all the team players on both sides came together to  push them through.

So be sure to understand that these "Fiscal Cliff" talks between Boehner and Obama are just for the game of it.  

But lets discuss that portion of the "game."   How in the hell did we get to this point of the "game" in allowing it to be between 2 men only?  How did we get to this point in allowing our future to be determined by 2 people that will affect 350 million?  

Let's think about that one.  Have we, "the public"  accepted that the game can be played on a micro level now that it is between 2 people to figure out?   NO, I don't believe we have!  I don't believe that we have as of yet allowed such a dictatorship to have that power (but we are close).

Now... all the media is throwing around the word "entitlements" once more in regards to the "fiscal cliff."   They are saying how entitlements to the public need to be cut.  

Last year I wrote about "Entitlements" and what they are and they are not!

Here is a little from that article - but I highly advice reading it for those who may not fully understand what Social Security is and how it is funded.  I have the history of it in the article.


BTW - from Social Security's website itself - shows  it has made 2+ TRILLION Dollars in excess than what it has ever paid out!
Every single person in the U.S. who works and gets a pay check are paying into Social Security.  Then on top of that all the money you paid into Social Security over the year you still have to pay full taxes on, even though the government took it for your "own good".  
Social Security was started in the 1935 by Roosevelt (yeah the same one of the Bretton Woods agreement and let the banks run wild and confiscated all the gold).   I am sure it was simply another way to get people's money out of their pockets and sold as a retirement nest egg that the government was going to keep safe for them.
Social Security is NOT a paid out benefit that comes from the government and has to be budgeted in!  It is it's own program that people are required by law to pay into.  It is NOT I repeat NOT an entitlement from the Government!
 
People need to fully understand it and educate themselves and not just allow the controlled mass media educate them. 

BUT now let's discuss what entitlements are and who are getting entitlements........

Question.... Who has gotten "free money" and has not had to pay a dime into a program to get that money over the last few years?

Let's think about that one.... including how the Federal Reserve had hidden trillions (16) in bailouts for the banks during the TARP time.  

So WHO is actually getting money and not having their taxes raised?  Figure it out yet?

Banks not paying back TARP money.  (This doesn't include the 16 trillion secretly/freely given out)

Fed audit reveals 16 Trillion secretly given to banks.

GE was given 140 billion in money (yep owns NBC and big media)
But what is even more infuriating about it all????  GE doesn't pay any taxes!  Outragous!

In fact you will find that all these banks and big corporations that get entitlements of Free money from the government and all of us... don't pay taxes! 

Yet... the media and the "game" of "Fiscal Cliff" that is being played is to stop the money that we have to pay into Social Security and Medicaid, etc... PLUS pay higher taxes. 

So... lets go over this....

Banks and corporations get entitlements and trillions of free money, they don't pay back and they don't have to pay taxes.  The government doesn't go after them nor do they hold them accountable.

Citizens of the United States that toil hard to pay their bills and not get kicked out on the street through foreclosure fraud of the banks and to keep their utilities on... besides having to pay into Social Security and other "entitlements" every pay check... are the ones the focus is on to cut the amount they get from what they have had to pay into AND get their taxes raised.

OH... what a country we live in!  Yet, people are not screaming and yelling about this.

Where is the critical thinking where is the common sense of Americans today?  

Why aren't people standing up and asking questions?

Do people really think the government (puppets) officials in Washington D.C. still work for the public's best interest?   They must, because they keep putting the same puppets back in office. 

When will people wake up to the game? 

The reality is... this "cliff" is not a fiscal cliff but it is a constitution cliff that we are at.  We are at the edge of allowing this country to go over the side of Democracy and become a dictatorship by allowing more control in fewer and fewer hands.  Now it is in the hands of two.

WOW.... I really didn't know when I became "awoke" that I would see the rest of the citizens being string pulled and led into the directions that are happening.  I didn't know that people would rather accept lies to what really is then to educate themselves on what is truth (which is not what MSM broadcast). 

So.... does in anyone really think this "Fiscal Cliff" game will end up with an advantage to the people... or the advantage to the banks and corporations?

Oh, one other thing that has outraged me..... those top CEO's of banks and corporations calling for "entitlement" cuts for the public....... 

Yeah... believe it or not.... small portion from article:

WASHINGTON -- The corporate CEOs who have made a high-profile foray into deficit negotiations have themselves been substantially responsible for the size of the deficit they now want closed.

The companies represented by executives working with the Campaign To Fix The Debt have received trillions in federal war contracts, subsidies and bailouts, as well as specialized tax breaks and loopholes that virtually eliminate the companies' tax bills.

The CEOs are part of a campaign run by the Peter Peterson-backed Center for a Responsible Federal Budget, which plans to spend at least $30 million pushing for a deficit reduction deal in the lame-duck session and beyond. 

During the past few days, CEOs belonging to what the campaign calls its CEO Fiscal Leadership Council -- most visibly, Goldman Sachs' Lloyd Blankfein and Honeywell's David Cote -- have barnstormed the media, making the case that the only way to cut the deficit is to severely scale back social safety-net programs -- Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security -- which would disproportionately impact the poor and the elderly. 

As part of their push, they are advocating a "territorial tax system" that would exempt their companies' foreign profits from taxation, netting them about $134 billion in tax savings, according to a new report from the Institute for Policy Studies titled "The CEO Campaign to ‘Fix’ the Debt: A Trojan Horse for Massive Corporate Tax Breaks" -- money that could help pay off the federal budget deficit.

Yet the CEOs are not offering to forgo federal money or pay a higher tax rate, on their personal income or corporate profits. Instead, council recommendations include cutting "entitlement" programs, as well as what they call "low-priority spending."

So... do you see who is actually entitled in this country and who is not?

  1. I occasionally peruse this site and also WRH and Ctr for informed America, but if you think that Social Security or Medicare are somehow expendable, you are crazy and if you think that the economic rights of working Americans are something to be bargained away, you must be working for people who don't work for a living. Anybody who is talking about "Fixing the debt" is either in the pay of Wall St crooks or a complete idiot. America's economic woes are caused by massive unemployment, not any concocted "Fiscal Cliff" which NPR was talking about months before the election trying to gin up fear.

    1. That is not what I am saying at all. If you read what I wrote last year too, you will see I say S.S. is NOT an entitlement etc. They have NO right to take it or cut it away.

      Sorry if my article is not clear to you. I am saying we the people don't get entitlements, we get what we have to pay into.
      The banks and corps are the ones who get entitlements, but you don't hear anything about stopping the free money to them.
