99ers and HR 589 Supporters Ignore It and It will Go Away?

CBS Sunday Morning did a piece outlining the age discrimination in reference to the long term unemployed, which has become predominant throughout the United States.  The piece was indeed an affirmation of what we 99ers already know and that is that the bulk of our numbers is baby boomers. 

Anyone who cannot see that the majority of the 99ers are the victims of an intentional culling is ignoring the facts.  When we were intentionally removed from the workforce it was because we had reached the tops of our pay scales, were reaching the age that the insurance companies would just as soon be rid of us, and on the brink of retiring as a part of the baby boom. 

In the piece on Sunday Morning one analyst indicated as a fact that many of us will never find work again and those who do are going to see a drastic reduction in their standard of living.  This has been a cold and calculated act that has intentionally targeted a segment of the population that counts in the millions and it is being ushered past the view of the general public as “just one of those things that happens.”

It is not just one of those things that happens.  Never in the history of our country has any group just been callously removed from their place in society.  In fact it has been an ongoing mission in this country literally since its inception to include more of our diversity into the American dream.  We 99ers have had our American dream taken away and are now being told that we need to just accept this outrage and learn how to forage in garbage dumpsters to survive.

One commenter on FOX made the statement that we cannot afford the baby boomers.  It is as if all the years we paid into the system now account for nothing.  They have taken our jobs, our standard of living, our homes, and now are working on taking our pride. 

The gentleman interviewed on the Sunday Morning program as one of his last statements said, “This is still the best damn country in the world.”  The fact is this man had not made it to being a 99er and in all reality I suppose some of these fools will go to the grave with their lips permanently attached to the arses of their oppressors.  

The statistics on the broadcast showed that laid-off workers finding a new job in reference to their age as follows:  Under the age of 34 – 36% found new jobs, in their 50s – 24%, and past the age of 62 – 18%.  This is not just evidence of age discrimination, it is proof positive.  And remember at present our so called representatives are pushing to raise the retirement age from 65 to 67 as they are saying that the elderly are more than capable of working until that age.  I guess they are adjusting the facts to suit the whims of the corporate elite.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are showing losses again as a result of sub-prime mortgages at the same time the CEOs of those companies are being given record bonuses with the top six executives earning more than $35 million since 2008.  And yes there is new talk of additional Wall Street bailouts even as gluttonous profits are being realized in the stock market.

Remember the estimated theft of wealth from the American people by the international banksters is now at $26 trillion and counting.  This is enough money to balance our budget, pay off our debt, and put every 99er back to work at his or her old job and pay scale.  It is so plain to see that everything gone from our country now lies in the vaults of the international banksters who stole it.

Meanwhile, a sheriff down in Florida came on CNBS and literally threatened shoplifters with 30 years in prison as he said they would be prosecuted under the RICO Act.  In the CNBC piece it was admitted that a majority of those stealing out of the stores were poor people stealing something to eat.  The sheriff made it clear that these thieves would not be tolerated. 

So if you steal a can of soup from a store because you are hungry, you are looking at 30 years in a forced labor camp.  But if you are a thief among the corporate elite that steals a trillion dollars for no other reason than to put it with another trillion you stole yesterday, the RICO Act does not apply. 

The Racketeering (RICO) Act was originally written as a mechanism for taking on the mafia.  It deals with fraud, coercion, and insurance scams, you know like when people are forced to buy insurance they do not want at the point of a gun.

As soon as the fraud that was being committed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and AIG was discovered, investigation and prosecution under the RICO Act should have been automatic, as this is exactly what the act was designed to deal with.  The fact is the international corporate mafia not only is above the law, but owns the law and routinely uses it to attack any politician that tries to show any measure of integrity. 

99ers and middle class we must get united and stop this outrage.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, history will judge us through our grandchildren who will look back on our inactions with shame and disgust.  Every day we delay the inevitable makes that inevitable that much more undesirable.  We must break out of this conundrum and face the facts. 

The fact is this crap is not going to stop until we the citizens of the United States stop it.  And yes we must be prepared to use physical force if necessary as those at the top in the Federal Reserve, who have been stealing our nation’s wealth with their monopoly money machine, are going to have to have their heads physically pulled out of the trough, as they have become so gluttonously obese in their excess that the only thing left on their bodies that will move is their mouths that continue to cram more in.

This whole situation is an abomination.  We must stop it and stop it now.

God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

  1. Henry, I read your articles everyday. Actually it’s one of the first things I do when I wake up. I agree with everything that you have written, I feel the same way. I may not always have a comment but I am always thinking of a solution. Frankly I am currently at a lost. How do we fight this problem?!! What is the most effective way?!! I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    I read that the age to collect Social Security benefits may be increased to 69. While I certainly do not want to work til I drop, the sixties is no longer elderly by a long shot. People are taking better care of themselves and living alot longer. I am 56 and though I feel the clock ticking, I feel that I have at least 15 years until I am newly elderly.

    But you are correct, the government is trying to kill us, to render us obsolete. They want to eliminate food stamps, unemployment benefits and all forms of public assistance. With age discrimination, the job market is all but hopeless. And yet we have to wait until we are at least 62 to collect. They are trying to force us over a cliff and with your help we will fight back!

  2. I appreciate your viewpoints, Henry. Your statistics are indeed proof positive as to why after 3 years and 2 months I haven’t been GAINfully employed. I guess now that after a year without UI here in CA, hocking nearly all I’ve got for the last 14 months, riding a bike for a week when my truck blew up, I’m headed for dumpster diving and soup stealing. I will humbly yet passionately state that my purpose is to feed a 7 year old daughter first. I would love to have 5 minutes alone with that FLA sheriff at any time during the 30 years I could spend away from my daughter if he had his way. F^&* that A$$HOLE! His salary should be paid in Almighty Centavos. I’m sure he is adept at foraging for roots, tubers, berries, mushrooms, Miner’s lettuce, etc…

    Not sure if the news made it national but we have a wonderful former Contra Costa County sheriff who headed up the Narcotics Task Force. He is accused of diverting evidence and reselling it on the street. You know, safe things like meth, pot, xanax, steroids, etc…good people, huh?

    If you’re going to think in this country, then combine thought with sense, sensibility, and the First Amendment, it seems life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness will surely be challenged if not compromised. I believe I speak for many when I state that domestic tranquility is not what I enjoy today. I thought all those words were for our lives and our PROSPERITY! 26 trillion makes me want to play a little game called “Cowboys and Crooks”. It’s time to saddle up and take it back with a hell of a lot more than words. The way I see it, stealing from old people, the working class and CHILDREN is a hell of a lot worse that shoplifting. The international corporate garbage should be watching their backs- I just might be the guy jumping out of a dumpster, hitting them over the head with a can of soup, and robbing them. Oh well, in our judicial system there’s always the insanity plea- I’ll just tell them my name is RICO. Anyone selling a horse?

  3. OBAMA NEEDS MILLIONS OF UNEMPLOYED TO JUSTIFY HIS ILLEGAL OBAMACARE. AND TRY TO GET RE-ELECTED BUT IM VOTING HIS ASS OUT. AND THAT PICTURE OF THAT TEA BAGGER WITH HIS HEAD IN THE SAND SAYS IT ALL. IM VOTING OUT OBAMA AND IM VOTING OUT EVERY TEA BAGGER!!!!!!! IM VOTING IN EVERY DEMOCRAT EXCEPT OBAMA. AND I AM A PROUD CONSERVATIVE. I AM AN INDEPENDENT CONSERVATIVE WHO HAS MADE UP HIS MIND FOR 2012 TODAY.

  4. The more i read the more it sounds like our government is committing genocide on the citizens of the U.S.A. via a slow torturous death…
    Everyone knows what happens when you corner a rat…. and we are ~ close to being rats…

  5. I think it is time to show this failing joke of a government that “WE THE PEOPLE” aren’t going to be taken as suckers anymore…..It IS time to march and protest and show them that this government is a complete joke. Obama has the right to make it all happen too but he was an accident like a child born not on purpose, best part of him ran down the leg! It’s time for ANARCHY….just like the Egyptians did and other countries are doing. The problem is that AMERICANS have no backbone and are more or less sissy’s and do nothing but talk about it……LETS ACT PEOPLE……revolt!
    John

  6. It truley amazes me that our government will spend a billion dollars in a matter of days launching cruise missles into someone else’s civil war but won’t help our own citizens by keeping a paultry life line up and running. Sad times we live in.

  7. IF WE keep sending jobs overseas there will eventually be 50 million out of work, THAT’S obvious. AT THAT POINT anyone older than 30 will be considered over the hill because all the jobs will be service related and be taken by the young healthier population.

  8. WHEN WE GET OUR 14 WEEK EXTENSION , IT IS GOING TO BE SPENT IN 5 MIN ON FOOD, RENT AND OTHER NECESSITIES SO … W T F???????? WHATS REALLY GOING ON IS WE ARE BEING TREATED LIKE CHILDREN IN A HOUSE WITH TWO DRUNK PARENTS WHO NEITHER WILL LISTEN TO REASON AND THESE DRUNK PARENTS HAVE THEIR ARMS CROSSED IN SEPERATE ROOMS WHILE WE ARE NEGLECTED AFTER THEY HAVE BANKRUPTED THE HOUSE AND WE ARE GOING TO BE LEFT IN POVERTY THROUGH “”NO..FAULT..OF..OUR..OWN.
    WE ARE 99ERS WE HAD TO QUALIFY THRU WAGES WE EARNED BEFORE WE WERE “””LAID OFF””” THIS ISNT A HAND OUT. THIS IS WORSE THAN THE GREAT DEPRESSION. GIVE US OUR((( EARNED))) EXTENSION OR ((((ELSE))))DAMMIT!!!!!!!!!

  9. If someone needs to steal food to stay alive more power to them. Let’s not forget the trillions of dollars of profit retail stores have made from these very same people. This country is already ruined. The federal reserve and big business have seen to that. So go ahead you idiot lawmakers put someone in jail for stealing food and spend more to jail and house and feed them in jail than it would cost to give them some food. You are all fools. But then again that’s why you have the jobs you do. Mindless careless egomanical so called figures of authority. Shame on this whole country.

  10. President Obama launches his 2012 campaign. Now is the time to ask him why should he be re-elected? Now is the time to make certain demands like creating anti-age discrimination laws, and creating more and/or stronger incentives to hire the over fifties. Now is the time to demand that jobs stop going overseas or if they are in this country to stop hiring foreigners. Jobs that were outsourced should be sent back to America, to help it’s citizens not foreigners. If the Republicans are creating obstacles, stand up to them with no more compromises. Listen to what is really going on with the unemployment problem. And dare him to say the word “99er”.

    1. He will just dodge the question! This wimp need to go!!! And, he had the nerve to tell Gadhafe (sp) to go??? WTF??? IDIOT!!!

  11. I agree that the 99ers are facing age discrimination. Let us then rally together and demand that the government provide employers with incentives to hire over 45 experienced mature workers who need a job. The president is just shy of being a baby boomer…can he not imagine how difficult it is to be rejected, improvished, in debt and homeless at this age? Does anyone really get it this days or is it a stick your head in the sand and thank god it is not your situation. What happened to looking after people who through no fault of their own are in dire straits. It seems that it is just another day for many who are working and although they see that their friends, neighbors etc are suffering they just don’t want to push for a decent remendy for the 99ers. Sometimes people just need a bit of hope to help. I suggest that someone contact all of the media outlets to tell the real story…..

  12. 2012 C H A N G E is coming to america.
    O B U M A
    AND THE TEA BAGGERS
    ARE GOING TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE .
    SINCERELY YOURS
    AVERAGE JOE .

  13. Henry was kind enough to post a video I made here on this website under 99er videos, Rise Up Stand Up Get Up… This video is only for the purpose of showing people that if we want action taken by the anyone we have to be the first to do it. Take action 99ers Rise Up Stand Up Get Up… Our jobs will be taken over by machines and robots plain fact, Our food and water supplies will be regulated, the middle class and poor will be eliminated slowly. Conspiracy to lessen the population has started at full speed. It doesnt hit home with many until they are in our situation. God bless you all and Im ready to stand by any of your sides and fight till the death if that what it takes. One Love One People One World…

  14. Again the Republicans are being blamed…for months they have said they will approve HR589 if an offset is found……Aid to Pakistan should be cut off in full, as should all aid to other terrorist supporting countries…The auto makers paid back all of their loans with
    a good rate of interest…certainly there is PLENTY of money to offset….But Obama and his ilk care only about getting reelected and are lavishing large funds on illegals to get their vote…take care of the long time suffering unemployued Americans first !!!
