    America: Land of the Thief, Home of the Slave |Welcome to the Oligarch Recovery 

    “When they first come in my door in the morning, the first thing I do is an inventory of immediate needs: Did you eat? Are you clean? A big part of my job is making them feel safe,” said Sonya Romero-Smith, a veteran teacher at Lew Wallace Elementary School in Albuquerque. Fourteen of her 18 kindergartners are eligible for free lunches.

    She helps them clean up with bathroom wipes and toothbrushes, and she stocks a drawer with clean socks, underwear, pants and shoes.

    From the Washington Post article: Majority of U.S. Public School Students are in Poverty

    It’s a recovery so lopsided only Timothy Geithner or an oligarch could love it. Since 2008, U.S. economic policy has concentrated on funneling as much money as possible to billionaires, keeping the poor alive and submissive through government programs, and squeezing the middle class to death while at the same time holding out the carrot of hope that things will return to how they were before (they won’t).

    The latest evidence of this monumental cultural theft was highlighted yesterday in the Washington Post. Here are a few excerpts:

    For the first time in at least 50 years, a majority of U.S. public school students come from low-income families, according to a new analysis of 2013 federal data, a statistic that has profound implications for the nation.

    The Southern Education Foundation reports that 51 percent of students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in the 2012-2013 school year were eligible for the federal program that provides free and reduced-price lunches. The lunch program is a rough proxy for poverty, but the explosion in the number of needy children in the nation’s public classrooms is a recent phenomenon that has been gaining attention among educators, public officials and researchers.

    A “recent phenomenon.” Call me crazy, but that isn’t what you’d expect five years into a so-called economic recovery.

    “We’ve all known this was the trend, that we would get to a majority, but it’s here sooner rather than later,” said Michael A. Rebell of the Campaign for Educational Equity at Teachers College at Columbia University, noting that the poverty rate has been increasing even as the economy has improved. “A lot of people at the top are doing much better, but the people at the bottom are not doing better at all. Those are the people who have the most children and send their children to public school.”

    Again, this isn’t a economic recovery, it is theft. Until we can admit to ourselves what the idiots and thieves in power have done, nothing will change.

    “When they first come in my door in the morning, the first thing I do is an inventory of immediate needs: Did you eat? Are you clean? A big part of my job is making them feel safe,” said Sonya Romero-Smith, a veteran teacher at Lew Wallace Elementary School in Albuquerque. Fourteen of her 18 kindergartners are eligible for free lunches.

    She helps them clean up with bathroom wipes and toothbrushes, and she stocks a drawer with clean socks, underwear, pants and shoes.

        Or let Us ALL be rich. This planet has plenty and could blossom under sane and not psychopathic care. Presently We have far too much evidence of psychopathic choices being made, from GMO’s loosed without everyOne’s informed consent, all the nanoparticulates of toxic metals along with biologics being sprayed upon Us without that same consent, fake “news” at all times – Baltimore? Give Me a break! – and all the push to stamp down on Humanity.

        So, what if We used the three things We now have that We didn’t ever in history, that make it possible to put down the accounting for Our energy (money system)? (Well, at least the history We are given…) Robotics, the interweb, and free energy. Yes, I know personally that electrogravitics drew energy from the aether along with offering gravity control. It’s been in black projects since the 1950’s. Energy from the aether is clean, free, available anywhere 24/7 energy.

        What stops Us from sharing awareness that We CAN choose to do things a whole lot better than We are doing them now.

        Withdraw consent from systems that promote psychopaths to power.

    REAL State of the Union… 

    World Affairs

    10. Millionaires have made millions, billionaires have made billions
    9. Thanks to the Fed, corporations have been borrowing cheap money and buying their own stocks. Only reason why stock market is up 200%
    8. New Home sales are down 65% from the peak, and yet house prices are bonkers, thanks to smart govt/bank policies 
    7. Full-time jobs are being replaced by multiple part-time jobs, and hence the illusion of “more” jobs
    6. 70% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, but hey stock market is up
    5. Unemployment down because of the way we count. Labor participation rate lowest since the 1970s. For men between 24-54, unemployment is over 20%
    4. Successfully created student loan bubble, subprime car bubble, housing bubble, stock market bubble, junk bond bubble and Fracking bubble. All ready to burst within two years
    3. US govt debt grew by $7 trillion in 6 years. Now…
