Dumbing Down U.S.: ObamaCare is the Affordable Care Act, you Dummies!

The Morning Consult survey (published by New York Times) discovered how stupid U.S. citizens have become regarding ObamaCare-Affordable Care Act (ACA).

35% think ObamaCare-ACA is two separate policies, or they aren’t even sure what it is!   The survey also showed that the younger and poorer an adult is the more ignorant they are of the mandatory healthcare program!

And here’s something interesting, people who call themselves republicans are the most likely to understand what ObamaCare-ACA is!  Is this why they’re so adamant about repealing it?   Amazingly 45% of respondents didn’t known that republicans were trying to repeal it!

By the way, there are plenty of examples showing that ever since Barack Obama coined the term ObamaCare the general public has been totally confused about it.

ObamaCare Death Spiral, December 2016: “UNCERTAINTY ABOUT FUTURE GOVERNMENT FUNDING”

Dumbing Down the U.S., December 2016: “THIS IS A BOMB DROPPED ON US!” “I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!”

Obama Legacy: “…a severe recession…”

On Nightly Business Report oil analyst John Kilduff essentially bitch-slapped the Obama regime’s optimistic claims about the economy (and despite reports that “Obama has presided over America’s biggest oil boom ever“), specifically using demand for oil as a gauge of how bad the economy was during the last few weeks of the Obama regime: “…it had reached such a low level……in demand that you would see during a sever recession.”

The crashing oil industry began under Obama’s watch, but Trump regime haters take heart, Kilduff also warned that economic and environmental policy changes in China could result in a huge shutdown of industry causing demand for world oil production to crash by 900-thousand barrels per day!  Meaning it’s likely the oil industry crash caused by crashing demand, which is caused by people and industries not having enough money to buy oil products, which is a sign of a suck-ass economy,  will continue under Tump.

OBAMA LEGACY: TRADE DEFICIT AT RECORD LEVEL?

Pharma Phail: Study says RX kills your immune system!

Monash University and University of Melbourne (both in Australia) released results of a study showing that prescription drugs use shuts down your immune system, specifically your MAIT cells.

Mucosal Associated Invariant T cells are one of your body’s early warning devices, they identify dangerous invading microbes.  The study found that prescription drugs (RX) prevent MAIT cells from working properly.

And don’t forget, most prescription drugs are made with chemicals from the oil industry: “… Pretty much all drugs use some sort of plastic product or carbon-based polymer at some point during the drug production process. Which is fancy way of saying ‘high value oil-based product.'”Christopher VanLang

Obama Legacy: Trade Deficit at record level?

07 February 2017 (13:55 UTC-07 Tango 06) 19 Bahman 1395/10 Jumada l-Ula 1438/11 Ren Yin 4715

U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis revealed that the past four years of the 2nd term of Barack Obama did nothing to reduce the trade deficit between the United States and the rest of the world:  “For 2016, the goods and services deficit increased $1.9 billion, or 0.4 percent, from 2015. Exports decreased $51.7 billion or 2.3 percent. Imports decreased $49.9 billion or 1.8 percent.”

But wait, the devil is in the details and Donald Trump can’t blame China as the data shows the trade deficit with the country he loves to hate (along with Mexico) actually declined: “The deficit with China decreased $20.1 billion to $347.0 billion in 2016. Exports decreased $0.3 billion to $115.8 billion and imports decreased $20.4 billion to $462.8 billion.”

Who can we blame? We could blame Obama for not being anti-oil like so many of his blind faith followers think he is.

According to the data, the overall trade deficit increase (for the entire Gregorian year of 2016) came mainly from the drastic U.S. petroleum industry cutbacks in production, and massive layoffs (as I’ve documented on BlindBatNews), in an effort to force the price of oil back to record highs: “Exports of goods decreased $50.5 billion to $1,459.8 billion in 2016. Exports of goods on a Census basis decreased $47.9 billion. * Industrial supplies and materials decreased $28.2 billion. o Fuel oil decreased $6.5 billion. o Organic chemicals decreased $3.8 billion. o Other petroleum products decreased $2.9 billion. * Capital goods decreased $20.1 billion. o Drilling and oilfield equipment decreased $3.7 billion. o Other industrial machines decreased $3.0 billion. Net balance of payments adjustments decreased $2.5 billion.”

The other culprit was the evil banking industry (Wells Fargo anybody?): “Exports of services decreased $1.3 billion to $749.6 billion in 2016. * Financial services decreased $7.3 billion. * Charges for the use of intellectual property decreased $4.4 billion. * Other business services, which includes research and development services; professional and management services; and technical, trade-related, and other services, increased $5.2 billion.”

Just remember, this all happened under Obama’s watch.

OBAMA LEGACY: MUJAHIDEEN RE-TAKE MORE OF AFGHANISTAN

“…give us some breathing room…” : U.S. federal/state/local government Shenanigans, December 2016

Incomplete list (due to internet access problems, come on why won’t anybody donate to BlindBatNews?) of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for December 2016:

Political activists known as The Koch Brothers laid off 81 people, now that the undemocratic presidential election is over.  At the same time they announced they’re creating a new for-profit communications company.

Alaska:  The state’s low tax collections (due to oil industry cutbacks) got a big boost from the new legalized marijuana operations.  December was the second month of Mary-Jane tax collections with the state raking in nearly $146-thousand USD! Buds are taxed at $50 per ounce, and the junk is taxed at $15 per ounce, with the grower being responsible for the tax payments.  

Colorado:  Garfield County Library District laid off eight people due to a $1.2-million USD crash in revenues (that’s what happens when you put all your hopes into the oil industry and then they reduce local operations by 45%).

Florida: Orange County was surprised when tax collections from tourists crashed by 3.5% in December. Local news reports say December is usually a good tax collection month for Orange County.  The city of Miami reports continued crashing of hotel tax collections, and of course city admin continues to blame it on fear of the Zika virus.

Georgia:  The overall tax collections for December 2016 were stagnant at 0.7% compared to December 2015.

Illinois: Peoria County warning of as many as 40 layoffs as part of their budget for 2017.  The new budget also raises property taxes.  County chairman Andy Rand indicated they didn’t expect any short term economic recovery by saying the austerity measures were meant to “…give us some breathing room over the next four years.”

Louisiana: Tax collections from tourists dropped 3.5% in December.

Massachusetts: Once again, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to kill jobs, this time warning of at least one hundred layoffs in 2017, due to a taxpayer funding shortage of $100-million USD!

Nebraska: For the past six months state level tax collections have been far less than what the predominantly ‘christian’ government ‘experts’ expected.  Actual tax collections came in at $51-million short of what was projected, proving their economy has not improved.  

New Jersey: The evil city of Newark forces janitor services company United Services to layoff 41 people.  In July, United Services filed a lawsuit claiming the city failed to pay for services rendered!

New York: Tax-sucking military sewing contractor The Resource Center issued a shutdown WARN, 57 Buffalo jobs lost by March 2017.  The town of Hempstead shutting down the 20 years old East Meadow Senior Center because the property owner now wants $9-thousand per month in rent (for the past 20 years the rent was free).

Ohio:  Tax collections failed to meet government budget ‘expert’s expectations, for the 5th month in a row!  This is another sign that Ohio’s low unemployment rate is fake.

Pennsylvania: 520 Jobless Center employees could join the unemployment lines before Xmas! Local news media blames it on disputes between Democrat and Republican politicians.

Tennessee:  Wilson County reports four straight years of increased sales tax collections, local news reports didn’t explain why.  However, at the state level it was reported that overall sales and corporate tax collections were up, mainly due to “substantial one time” corporate tax payouts.   

Texas: State tax collectors reported that tax revenues for the twin cities of Bryan-College Station were up for the year, but down for December.  The increases came from sales taxes, and the decreases were caused by the oil industry shutdowns. 

Vermont: Taxpayer funded, Bernie Sanders founded, drug-free music venue 242 Main finally shutdown after 32 years of lack of funding and lack of ticket sales. (probably would’ve made money if it offered free drugs instead of being drug-free)

Virginia: The city of Danville reports increased tax and fee collections for the year. City admin admitted that part of the increase is from cash strapped property owners finally making payments on past due taxes.  

Washington DC: The federal government’s budget deficit hit $28-billion in December 2016, double what it was in December 2015!  Obama regime’s new legacy as The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December. Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons, and are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media. Meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

“…is Grinch making these decisions or human beings…?” : U.S. High Tech/Communications shutdown December 2016

More proof you brick-n-mortar store owners can’t directly blame the internet/high-tech competition for your demise. Incomplete (especially because of my internet troubles) list of U.S. internet/high-tech/communications job destruction announcements in December 2016:

Fairpoint Communications began their planned elimination of of 153 jobs in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont!

Alabama: Sitel shutting down their 15 years old call center in Covington County, 4-hundred jobs gone by Spring 2017! Sitel execs gave no explanation which pissed off the mayors of two cities directly affected by the shutdown: “We were really shocked!”-Becky Bracke, Mayor of Opp

“…is Grinch making these decisions or human beings…?”-Earl Johnson, Mayor of Andalusia

California: San Francisco advertising company AdRoll ‘rolled’ 29 of its employees by suddenly laying them off, despite reporting record level revenues.  AdRoll execs claim the layoffs were needed to expand the company.  Once again, DreamWorks Animation eliminating jobs, this time 170 people in Glendale to be pushed to the curb (on top of 2-hundred jobs eliminated elsewhere)! Blame it on DreamWorks new owner NBCUniversal.  Semiconductor maker Atmel issued a layoff WARN for its San Jose ops, 45 jobs gone by February 2017.

Florida: Tennessee based marketer, call center operator and job outsourcer Sitel issued a shutdown WARN for their Pompano Beach operations, 804 jobs gone by the end of February 2017!

Illinois: Chicago based jobs company Challenger, Gray & Christmas reported that employers increased job killing by 25% compared to November.

Minnesota: Seagate suddenly laid off 155 people in Shakopee, due to crashing demand for hard drives!

New York: NYC based Associated Press laid off 25 people. 

Pennsylvania: Comcast issued a WARN for their Lancaster operations, 78 jobs gone by May 2017.

Washington: Spokane based internet retailer etailz eliminating at least 8% of its positions due to selling out to New York based Trans World Entertainment.

Tech/Communications shutdown November 2016: GRINCH CONDUCTS MASSIVE “ORGANIZATIONAL DOWNSIZING”, MERRY XMAS!

U.S. Banking/Retail/Service sector destruction December 2016: “I AM FIGHTING….AN UNWINNABLE FIGHT.”

Obama Legacy: Mujahideen re-take more of Afghanistan

02 February 2017 (13:27 UTC-07 Tango 06) 14 Bahman 1395/05 Jumada l-Ula 1438/06 Ren Yin 4715

Obama’s own Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reports that after eight years of Obama policy in Afghanistan the Mujahideen (specifically the Taliban) have actually become stronger and now control 43% of the country.  This revelation comes a few weeks after Barack Obama ordered the deployment of additional Marines to Afghanistan, right before Donald Trump was swore in as the new President of the United States.

OBAMA LEGACY: RECORD 95-MILLION + UNEMPLOYED & NOT COUNTED!

Obama Legacy: Record 95-million + unemployed & not counted!

13 January 2017 / 22:27 UTC-07 Tango 06 (25 Dey 1395/15 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/17 Ji Chou 4714)

Obama regime creates new legacy as the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a record 95-million 102-thousand U.S. citizen, ages 16 and up, are Not In Labor Force during December 2016.

Not In Labor Force refers to people unemployed for various reasons and who are not looking for work.  Those Not In Labor Force people are not used to calculate the ‘official’ unemployment percentage as reported by main stream news media, meaning the number of unemployed ‘Mericans is much higher than ‘officially’ reported.

High Tech Fail: Idaho’s low tech paper ballots ranked one of most trustworthy for U.S. elections!

08 January 2017 (13:51 UTC-07 Tango 06) 19 Dey 1395/09 Rabi ‘ath-Thani 1438/11 Ji Chou 4714

The University of Sydney, in Australia, recently published their study of the U.S. voting system (done with the cooperation of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University), or systems since there is no standardized system of voting across the United States.

The latest and greatest electronic voting systems failed to boost the election integrity of the more populous U.S. states.

In fact, Idaho’s old fashioned mainly paper ballot system helped The Gem State earn the second highest ranking for election integrity in the United States (behind tiny Vermont)!  Keep in mind that the logistics of casting and counting votes in Idaho is delegated down to the county level, also realize that even though Idaho is considered one of the best for election integrity there were several cases of documented vote fraud.

And time for another reality check, the United States as a whole (once considered the leader in world democratic ideals) is still ranked among the lowest for election integrity in the ‘western’ europeanized world (once known as Christendom), along with the United Kingdom.
