    According to the big 0, terrorists aren’t Islamic and religion has nothing to do with it…

    In that case the police didn’t have anything to do with Michael Brown’s death.

    I rather be an alive ‘Bitter Clinger’ than a dead sucka.

    That quote is about seven years old…

    The full quote (from 4/6/08)
    “You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    The Full Quote:
    “We’ve got a couple of folks who are heading out to Pennsylvania to go door to door with us. And the question was: What kinds of questions should I expect them to get? … The places where we are going to have to do the most work are the places where people feel most cynical about government. The people are misapprehend—I think they’re misunderstanding why the demographics in our—in this contest have broken out as they are. <b?Because everybody just ascribes it to “white working-class don't want to work—don't want to vote for the black guy.” That's—there were intimations of that, there was an article in the Sunday New York Times today that kind of implies that it's sort of a race thing. …

    "Here’s what it is: In a lot of these communities in big industrial states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, people have been beaten down so long, they feel so betrayed by government, that when they hear a pitch that is premised on not being cynical about government, there’s a part of them that just doesn't buy it. And when it’s delivered by—it is true that when it’s delivered by a 46-year-old black man named Barack Obama, then that adds another layer of skepticism. (Audience laughs.)

    “But— so the questions you’re most likely to get are going to be: ‘Well, you know, what’s this guy going to do for me? What’s the concrete thing?’ And what they want to hear is—you know, so we’ll give you talking points about what we’re proposing: to close tax loopholes and roll back, you know, the top—the tax cuts for the top 1 percent. Obama’s going to give tax breaks to middle-class folks, and we’re going to provide health care for every American. You know, we’ll have a series of talking points.

    “But the truth is that our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there’s no evidence of that in their daily lives. You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio—like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years, and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration. And each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate. And they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or, you know, anti-trade sentiment [as] a way to explain their frustrations.

    “Now, these are in some communities. You know, I think what you’ll find is that people of every background—there are going to be a mix of people. You can go in the toughest neighborhood, you know, working-class lunch-pail folks, and you’ll find Obama enthusiasts. And you can go into places where you’d think that I’d be very strong, and people will just be skeptical. The important thing is that you show up and you’re doing what you’re doing.”

      Notice that Obummer’s promise was NOT TO BRING BACK JOBS! He promised to kill the jobs associated with coal and to make energy costs sky rocket. This will kill what ever heavy manufacturing jobs there are left in the USA.

      His spoken promise was more taxes on the upper class and Obummercare. As Working Class America has since found out Obummercare means sky rocketing costs for a lot less medical insurance or complete loss of company paid insurance if you work for a small firm.

      The real statistics show the real unemployment has skyrocketed under Obummer. Remember this doesn’t even cover the new grads who can not find work.

      U-3 = proof given to workman’s comp looked for work in last 4 weeks

      U-6 = Workers discouraged short term because there are no jobs
      (If there are no jobs you can not produce proof you went on a job interview.)

      Shaddow Stat – long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994 by Clinton Admin. to hide the number of jobs shipped to China.

      ……………..
      Back to Pennsylvania
      Pennsylvania was the nation’s principal producer of ships, iron, chemicals, lumber, oil, textiles, glass, coal, and steel. Although it is still a major manufacturing center, Pennsylvania’s industrial leadership has diminished steadily during this century….

      The largest industries in 1998 were services, 30.0% of earnings; durable goods manufacturing, 12.2%; and state and local government, 9.7%. From 1997 to 1998 the fastest growing industries was services. In other words burger flippers and store clerks.

      Most of the decent jobs have gone to cheaper labor either illegal immigrants or H1B visa holders. Obummer’s ” anti-immigrant sentiment”

      …there was little knowledge among fellow employees about H-1B visa holders and how they are used. They didn’t know that offshore outsourcing firms are the largest users of H-1B visas, or exactly how this visa facilitates IT job losses in the U.S.

      “I think once we learned about it, we became angrier toward the U.S. government than we were with the people that were over here from India,.. “because the government is allowing this.” Computer World

      All the industries I highlighted have taken a major hit from EPA regulations or from Clinton’s ratification of the World Trade Organization — Obummer’s “you know, anti-trade sentiment” — and Clinton’s sponsoring of China in to the WTO. In return for China’s campaign contributions, Clinton hand China our technology, including the technology to build nuclear war heads and lob them at the USA. As one Chinese general threatened, to “rain down nukes upon Los Angeles”.

      After China’s nuclear espionage, a campaign finance scandal, and two crises over Taiwan, Bill Clinton’s China policy has been venal at best, treasonous at worst. He is responsible for China’s rise as a militant, nuclear armed threat to the United States. China has grown from an agrarian backwater into the world’s third largest economy on Clinton’s watch. While or yearly trade deficits with China have risen to 70 billion dollars a year, they have been the world’s fastest growing economy. China has become a colossus precisely because of our trade deficits.

      With their new wealth, China has sought military parity with the United States. They have been aided by President Clinton and corporate America. US companies spent over 100 million dollars lobbying congress to pass the China Relations Act. Most of that money went to buy congressional votes with campaign donations.

      A few American stockholders have profited immensely from modernizing China’s armed forces. Still more US companies have built factories in China. These factories and plenty of cheap, docile labor earn huge profits for these investors. Protecting these profits is Clinton’s China policy.

        The bitter Clingers have finally figured out they have been screwed by the US Congress and their Transnational Corporate buddies.

        Obummer PROVED he is in bed with the transnationals when he appointed Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric as Jobs Council Czar.

        That’s the same GE that announced it “is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing“. “General Electric Co.’s health-care unit, the world’s biggest maker of medical-imaging machines, is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing to tap growth in China.”

        An article in the Huffington Post shows how GE has been sending tens thousands of jobs out of the country….

        As the administration struggles to prod businesses to create jobs at home, GE has been busy sending them abroad. Since Immelt took over in 2001, GE has shed 34,000 jobs in the U.S., according to its most recent annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But it’s added 25,000 jobs overseas.

        At the end of 2009, GE employed 36,000 more people abroad than it did in the U.S. In 2000, it was nearly the opposite.

        Remember the US government mandated a switch to twisty light bulbs? Well GE shut down the factories manufacturing the incandescent bulbs here in the USA and now manufactures the twisty bulbs in China. So much for Obummers “green Jobs”

        Back in 1979, there were 19.5 million manufacturing jobs in the United States.

        By 2011 there were only 11.6 million.

        That represents a decline of 40 percent during a time period when our overall population experienced tremendous growth.

        We used to have the greatest manufacturing cities on the entire globe. The rest of the world was in awe of us. However Since 2001, the U.S. has lost 42,400 factories — and its technical edge.

        Something has gone radically wrong with the American economy. A once-robust system of “traditional engineering” — the invention, design, and manufacture of products — has been replaced by financial engineering…. Wall Street created money it did not have and Americans spent money they did not have….

        America’s economic elite has long argued that the country does not need an industrial base. The economies in states such as California and Michigan that have lost their industrial base, however, belie that claim….

        For American manufacturers, the bad years didn’t begin with the banking crisis of 2008. Indeed, the U.S. manufacturing sector never emerged from the 2001 recession, which coincided with China’s entry into the World Trade Organization. Since 2001, the country has lost 42,400 factories, including 36 percent of factories that employ more than 1,000 workers (which declined from 1,479 to 947), and 38 percent of factories that employ between 500 and 999 employees (from 3,198 to 1,972). An additional 90,000 manufacturing companies are now at risk of going out of business.

        Long before the banking collapse of 2008, such important U.S. industries as machine tools, consumer electronics, auto parts, appliances, furniture, telecommunications equipment, and many others that had once dominated the global marketplace suffered their own economic collapse. Manufacturing employment dropped to 11.7 million in October 2009, a loss of 5.5 million or 32 percent of all manufacturing jobs since October 2000. The last time fewer than 12 million people worked in the manufacturing sector was in 1941. In October 2009, more people were officially unemployed (15.7 million) than were working in manufacturing.

        When a factory closes, it creates a vortex that has far-reaching consequences. The Milken Institute estimates that every computer-manufacturing job in California creates 15 jobs outside the factory…..

        So today, most of those formerly great manufacturing cities are decaying, rotting hellholes. Progressives insisted that globalism would not result in a “giant sucking sound” as millions of jobs left America.

        But that is exactly what has happened and Obama’s Jobs Czar is leading the exodus.

    Yes, free trade has destroyed the working class males in particular.

    And this was supported by nearly the entire GOP and DNC leaders. All Presidents starting with Ronald Reagan supported ‘free trade’. The Bilderberg gang cooked up ‘free trade’ years ago.

  7. Gail Combs says:

    It would seem the “Bitter Clingers” are not as dumb as Obummer thinks and despite the MSM’s “OH look a squirrel!” tactics have figured out what is important.

    Confidence in Race Relations Tumbles

    Blacks, Whites Agree Obama Hasn’t Improved Race Relations

    REPORTER: Mr President, why does your administration have such trouble calling out Hot Salamis for what they are?
    BO: I will not get into that game. You know as well as I do that the overwhelming majority of Salamis are PEACEZZA loving Salamis.
    REPORTER: But what about the PEPPERONIS of America or the CAPICOLAS of Europe and the SUCUKS of the Middle East, what would you call them if not Hot Salamis?
    BO: They have nothing to do with Salamis, they are FERMENTED SAUSAGES.
