Sarasota, FL ( August 12, 2013) - The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) based in Sarasota, FL, headed by Chairman Frances Rice, filed Articles of Impeachment against President Barack Obama with the following language.

We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.

It ended in 476 and 1776 the same way this will - violence. Violence is the only thing psychopaths understand.

It's finished. Every previous generation has a story to tell the next generation about how great America used to be. I remember hearing one from an older guy who told me that in 1973, when he started at the company were were at, if he didn't like his job, he could quit that morning and go down the street and start another one that afternoon - full time with benefits I would add. To get a job at that same company 10 years later, there were 200 applicants for 1 job but it was still full time with excellent pay and medical and dental benefits. When I was a kid in the late 60's every factory had an employment office and help wanted sign out front. Jobs that supported families could be gotten right out of high school. Training was on the job provided by the employer for free.

The reasoning is that better unemployment data means that the Federal Reserve will begin to "taper" its monthly $85 billion quantitative easing, which is the only thing holding up the stock market. As I've said in the past, it's like we're all watching a dreadful horror movie, but we're locked in the movie theatre and can't get out.
I call it "Bernanke's Frankenstein". Also, as Vince has noted, interest rates have been going up as the data gets better. So there's really no way out that I can see.
Although changes are being slowly introduced, state-owned banks have long been allowed to lend only at low, regulated rates barely above the inflation rate, with the total value of loans controlled by quarterly quotas. All over China, these loans go overwhelmingly to large state-owned businesses, government officials and politically connected individuals, who then relend the money at much higher interest rates to small and medium-size businesses in the private sector that need money to grow.

Arthur Burns (Burnseig) - appointed by Richard Nixon
Alan Greenspan - appointed by Ronald Reagan
Ben Bernanke - appointed by George W Bush

You want to know who ruined the economy, look no further.
In his book Six Crises, Nixon later blamed his defeat in 1960 in part on Fed policy and the resulting tight credit conditions and slow growth. After finally winning the presidential election of 1968, Nixon named Burns to the Fed Chairmanship in 1970 with instructions to ensure easy access to credit when Nixon was running for reelection in 1972.
Nixon was a piece of shit.
Although Burns opposed Nixon's decision to close the "gold window," he "'assured the President that I would support his new program fully,' notwithstanding his reservations about the gold suspension."
Burns was a piece of shit.

Now it is crashing and burning and the citizens will get what they deserve for their lack of vigilance.

I remember when Bernanke got nominated by Bush. He said something to the effect that he would do his best for the President. It was disgusting to watch that groveling sycophant.

read Robert Fisk’s The Great War For Civilization if you get any time.
We touched on a few facets of it. When you get a chance it worth the time to consider some
facets going forward. No accidents in politics even before redbone and selective ignorance disorder
of the so called true faith of the red and blue scroundrels as Quigley muttered in acedemic parlourance.
He lamented the facade. As you note the shift is only left or right coast for our own good of these
current ordered ones. As we noted education is worthless once you own the past and true on citizens will get what
they deserve for their lack of vigilence. The Book is very clear on that even if your village, useful, or cherful.
The millstone indeed is heavy H.

…. You won’t find the following info in the ACA. It’s in the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993 (OBRA 1993) – a federal statute which applies to Medicaid, and, if you are enrolled in Medicaid, it will apply to you depending on your age.

a) OBRA 1993 requires all states that receive Medicaid funding to seek recovery from the estates of deceased individuals who used Medicaid benefits at age 55 or older. It allows recovery for any items or services under the state Medicaid plan going beyond nursing homes and other long-term care institutions. In fact, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) site says that states have the option of recovering payments for all Medicaid services provided. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) site says at state option, recovery can be pursued for any items covered by the Medicaid state plan. …

Your estate is what you own when you die – your home and what’s in it, other real estate you may own, your bank account, annuities and so on. And even if you have a will, your heirs are chopped liver. Low-income people often have only one major asset – the home in which they live and, in some cases, this has been the family home through several generations.

So what this boils down to is: If you are put into Medicaid – congratulations – you just got a mandated collateral loan if you use Medicaid benefits at age 55 or older! States keep a running tally.

Most Americans have never even heard of the Ogallala Aquifer, but it is one of our most important natural resources. It is one of the largest sources of fresh water on the entire planet, and farmers use water from the Ogallala Aquifer to irrigate more than 15 million acres of crops each year. It covers more than 100,000 square miles and it sits underneath the states of Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming and South Dakota.
Unfortunately, today it is being drained dry at a staggering rate. The following are a few statistics about this from one of my previous articles...
1. The Ogallala Aquifer is being drained at a rate of approximately 800 gallons per minute.
2. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, "a volume equivalent to two-thirds of the water in Lake Erie" has been permanently drained from the Ogallala Aquifer since 1940.
3. Decades ago, the Ogallala Aquifer had an average depth of approximately 240 feet, but today the average depth is just 80 feet. In some areas of Texas, the water is gone completely.
So exactly what do we plan to do once the water is gone?
We won't be able to grow as many crops and we will not be able to support such large cities in the Southwest.
If we have a few more summers of severe drought that are anything like last summer, we are going to be staring a major emergency in the face very rapidly.
If you live in the western half of the country, you might want to start making plans for the future, because our politicians sure are not.

The way the Fed boosts asset prices for stocks and bonds is by buying up bonds and pushing interest rates down. But now that interest rates have about doubled in 4 months people will be getting worried that the Fed is not in fact all powerful. Going up as fast as it is I don't think faith in the Fed lasts till the end of Sept.

In some areas of Kansas the water is gone completely too and so are the towns in those areas.

My grandparents farmed in Nebraska and we made annual trips there in the 1960's and 1970's. During those annual trips, we drove around the countryside and every year it was pointed out who got irrigation installed. Over 10 years it went from mostly non-irrigated to mostly irrigated. They say irrigation isn't needed to grow corn in eastern Nebraska which is true but yields are a lot better. The aquifer tends to run dry where the water is needed the most.

Just one more data point of the coming dark age. Though I believe many more will hit first.
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Water levels in the Ogallala Aquifer, a vast underground reservoir, have dropped significantly in sections of Kansas since last year, according to the Kansas Geological Survey.

Rex Buchanan, interim director of the Kansas Geological Survey, recently completed an annual tour of the 1,400 wells that tap into the Ogallala in western Kansas. He said overall levels dropped about 3.5 feet in January 2013 compared to last year. Declines in January 2012 averaged 4.25 feet, he said.
Buchanan said even in a normal year, the aquifer only recharges at an annual rate of about a half-inch. But users in some sections are pumping water out at a rate of two to four feet per year -- sometimes more. That rate only increases during periods of prolonged drought, such as the one the region has been experiencing for the past year.

"There's no question about it, we're running smack dab into the limitations of the aquifer itself today and the demand placed upon it by those pumping wells," said Mark Rude, executive director of Groundwater Management District No. 3, which governs water resources in much of southwestern Kansas, said
