BarbsBlog Posts Bullshit!!!

This page was made by me to comment on a blog post that pissed me off and replies to it are moderated. I made my own without the filters because I WANTED TO COMMENT!

Before I get started on this page I'm going to have to make a few things clear.

This girl "Barb" has a Wordpress blog and through my searches for information on new laws, government related issues and the Occupy movement I found one of her blog pages. I must have just gotten lucky though because it contained about 5 posts and they were all decent reads.

I was impressed enough with her that I both subscribed to her feed and shared her blog with many of my friends. I'm not so impressed now though.

Below is a copy of what I got in her email yesterday. It disgusted me so much with the Archie Bunker stereotype attitude and the purely negative one sided, impotent and demeaning, senseless, slandering and shameful way that it accuses people in need and even goes on further to insult anyone attempting to give them any form of support,,,

Back to the point, I opened that email about 3 times before I could bring myself down enough to actually read it beginning to end. I don't know where this... woman, got her colors from but she shows some serious signs of someone that grew up or created for herself some kind of strange environment. Her way of seeing the world that I live in, I think the one that most of us live in is scary beyond doubt.

I read her .... and I see visions of mass extermination, smiling barbara's standing over them gloating and squealing with delight

I had better get off that topic right now, but first one of the other things I had to say before we get to her post...

Why am I so offended?

I'll have to take you back to a place in time. This is the year 1967 and to this day I have only shared any of that time once in writing, I'll do it here again I guess though...

It was 1967. My father owned a construction company. It was called The American Rock Lath Company INC. It was a real company and it was incorporated

We at that time had all of the potential to become a very well established and upper middle class American family.

I was 6 years old at the time.

In October that year my father went to the dentist to have a tooth extracted. Because of the A.M.A.'s regulations the dentist at that time had to give other medical professionals a cut from the cake and my father was told to go from there to the hospital in the next city and get a shot of antibiotics.

He was very healthy and never knew a thing about being ill or weakness, he also thought that if it was all that important then the dentist could have given him the damn shot then and there. He went back to his work to do what he did best instead, he after all did have his employee's to look out for and to contend with.

That night he came home and I sat on his lap with him for the very last time in my life.

He quickly got an infection in his blood that quickly moved into his heart. Bacterial Endocarditis was what they called it. The rest from there on was him suffering, them cutting out pieces of his heart, us living off of nothing, everything being sold for next to nothing and then in the end it was April, the first nice day of the year and he died.

The story is not about that though. It's about this...

I think it was about 15 or 16 months long going through this. In the end I fukkin knew what poverty was. We had 12 children living in a 2 bedroom house. I slept on the bathroom floor or in the bathtub (when it was my turn). A large bag of white rice was ten to fifteen cents. We ate once a day on most days and we waited for that rice and we ate it and it was good. The other food we were too scared to eat. I wouldn't eat the good side of a rotted tomato.

I'm not talking about those fucking years anymore and I'm kind of pissed that that barb chose to talk about that life on her silly little blog, in her own special way!!!

Here's her half rotted tomatoes for you to eat from if you want to. I did comment and you'll easily see that my words are not hers, nor are her words mine!!!

The Real Welfare America: Food Stamps, up 8.1% in the past year

Has it occurred to anyone else that the enormous gulf that SEEMS to run between left and right, between Liberals and Conservatives – but not necessarily between parties – is a deliberate ploy, employed well by the progressives throughout the twentieth century to manufacture a gulf, class warfare and attempt to polarize WE-THE-PEOPLE? WE are the power source in our Constitutional Republic! Yet the left and the liberal Democrats, led by President Obama, insist they know how to fix everything that is wrong with America. They know better, but of course, they cannot DO anything alone, so they want more and more money, more and more “Regulation” to advance their agenda.
Ironic, huh?
In spite of its mantra that implies the Liberal Democrats are the party “of the people,” strangely, it is this mindset that has produced the “social reforms” that were to “lift the burden” from the people. However, in retrospect, these social welfare programs have done nothing but perpetuate slavery in the name of compassion! It seems clear the liberal left does not apprehend the difference between the hand up and the hand out!
So … does the liberal left ELITE, the ones in power who want to control every facet of our lives – what we eat, what we do on the internet, how we pray, what our clergy may or may not say from their pulpits, what medical procedures we may or may not be eligible to receive … Yup, THIS is the Liberal left! Do they have a … a PLAN? NO! Have yo0u seen a real plan come from the White House? NO … no plan! No budget in over 900 days! But … he does want 4 more years to finish his destruction of our nation and the disembowelment of our US CONSTITUTION.
The progressive movement born under the reign of Woodrow Wilson, slowly and deceptively has succeeded in replacing our liberties with a poor substitute for “security.” Food stamps replace the FEAR of no food. Medicaid replaces the FEAR of sudden illness. While these needs may be real, the GOVERNMENT is not designed to carry this burden, but rather to make resources available for those who wish to help and second, to publish the programs designed to help. The programs, however, must be supported and run 100% by the public, not the government.

Food stamp rolls have risen 8.1% in the past year - Thanks Obama!
WSJ – Nearly 15% of the U.S. population relied on food stamps in August, as the number of recipients hit 45.8 million.
Food stamp rolls have risen 8.1% in the past year, the Department of Agriculture reported, though the pace of growth has slowed from the depths of the recession. MORE HERE

Executive Summary
Today, the Census Bureau released its annual poverty report, which declared that a record 46.2 million persons, or roughly one in seven Americans, were poor in 2010. The numbers were up sharply from the previous year’s total of 43.6 million. Although the current recession has increased the numbers of the poor, high levels of poverty predate the recession. In most years for the past two decades, the Census Bureau has declared that at least 35 million Americans lived in poverty.
The following are facts about persons defined as “poor” by the Census Bureau as taken from various government reports:

  • 80 percent of poor households have air conditioning. In 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning. You got that load of crap from, and it is just a load of crap! Read this “Since the 1970’s, the amount of electricity used by residential air conditioners has dropped by about 15 per cent per decade, thanks to improvements in such things as coil designs, compressors and circulation systems. Indeed, today’s most efficient air conditioners use 30 to 40 per cent less energy than models sold 10 or 15 years ago.” [link] I couldn't get great quotes, but I found this one after over an hour searching...1970 ranged from US$4066 to US$4329 now it's $750 - $1000 for at least 40% more efficient and The minimum wage in 1970 was $1.60. A new car cost $3,800 and a new house cost $23,400.00. The average annual income in 1970 was $17,550.00, right now the average annual income is broken into groups and not so easily defined, but $65,317 is the Mid range found on Using those numbers then that $4,000 lower priced air conditioner would have been equal in cost to purchasing one for over $12,000 if you were to count the hours spent earning the money that you took from your earnings to pay for it. Instead though, you can buy a better one now for about $750, which reflects about a 7 month savings of all your earnings for that amount of time and today it's not even a 5 day work weeks take home pay. You should not compare values of products that have gone so far down in value that even the poor can now enjoy them to a time when only the wealthy had the option to own them. Do you remember in 1976, the digital watches? They were about 4 to $6,000. Does owning a digital watch make you part of the "higher class" if you own one now? It did then, didn't it?"
  • 92 percent of poor households have a microwave. “I don’t own one, but I’ve thrown many away. Counter space is worth more than 1 $40 microwave and that fad ended over 10 years ago. Please stop[ counting accumulated trash as a sign of wealth. You Only mock yourself when you do that Missy.”
  • Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more cars or trucks. “That is not true! It may be true in rural area’s where a vehicle can be kept on the property and there is room enough to keep a not so well working spare, but most people live in or near the cities and there is no way a 6 family house that’s occupied by about 12 adults and 4 or 5 teens that have driving privileges can park on that property or the streets surrounding it 17 vehicles and you damn well know it!”
  • Nearly two-thirds have cable or satellite TV. “Our Government paved the way for cable TV to take over almost all access to media through television Many rules were imposed and many court cases fought here is a list of a few. In the end we were guaranteed that we would not lose our access to educational programming, local programming or the news media. In short, as a result of the political ass-kissing done through our elected officials the final agreement was that everyone can have and should have cable access or the equivalent because they need it. They especially need it if there are children living in the home to be used as part of their education.”
  • Two-thirds have at least one DVD player, and 70 percent have a VCR. “DVD player $14.99 all day long at, VCR’s $5 at Salvation Army, Goodwill and Free from neighbors, but who even wants one anyway?”
  • Half have a personal computer, and one in seven have two or more computers. “Computers are as good as free these days, you shouldn’t count them as a sign of wealth, I just gave away 2 last week myself and have given away more than 30 in the last 7 or 8 years.”
  • More than half of poor families with children have a video game system, such as an Xbox or PlayStation. “If you count out-dated equipment and kids fiddling with thrown away junk, then I’ll let you have that number!”
  • 43 percent have Internet access. “IMPOSSIBLE! 43% of the poor do not have internet, unless you count the library cards that they use to access the net with.”
  • One-third have a wide-screen plasma or LCD TV. “Are you jealous? They don’t even sell CRT anymore and LCD pays for itself every month in the energy reduction. You should read ALL the reports, ya-think???”
  • One-fourth have a digital video recorder system, such as a TiVo. “VCR’s are NOT a sign of wealth or prosperity, unless you are using them to look for accusations and most of them are given away free as part of the service that comes with Dish Network.”
  • But 51% of Americans are too poor to pay taxes??? pfft, 1% OWN 99% of everything and they are too "good" to pay the taxes that support what they own and the other 99% pay to support pretty much only their interests!
Judge Judy Exposes Reason #376 Why “Poor” People Should Pay Taxes, Too (VIDEO) Talk about “misappropriation of funds!!! lol “Judge Judy never addressed anything of the sort. She addressed a 21 year old male college student who receives college grants and sleeps with a woman almost 50% older than him and admits that the sex and conversations with her more than paid his way into her bed. Judge Judy never said a word about poor people at all.”
Gotta love this video! He has no clue! NONE!
Few Americans know poverty as the World knows it. Surely, a "neighbor" can help meet the need.
For 2009, the survey showed:

96 percent of poor parents stated that their children were never hungry at any time during the year because they could not afford food.*
83 percent of poor families reported having enough food to eat.*
82 percent of poor adults reported never being hungry at any time in the prior year due to lack of money for food.*
Other government surveys show that the average consumption of protein, vitamins, and minerals is virtually the same for poor and middle-class children and is well above recommended norms in most cases.
*NOTE: Government food programs in schools are mandatory. Those numbers were published to support that program and no parent in his or her right mind would say publicly that their children go hungry or they would risk having them removed from the home!
Television newscasts about poverty in America generally portray the poor as homeless people or as a destitute family living in an overcrowded, dilapidated trailer. In fact, however:
Over the course of a year, 4 percent of poor persons become temporarily homeless.
Only 9.5 percent of the poor live in mobile homes or trailers, 49.5 percent live in separate single-family houses or townhouses, and 40 percent live in apartments.
Question: 4% + 9.5% + 49.5% + 40% totals 104%, right? While we’re on that subject. It is correct to assume that 9.9% (the homeless and trailer-park trash scum with the nintendo’s, microwaves and plasma TV’s that have the satellite dish and 1 or 2 computers with the internet, Tivo and the VCR’s, well about just less than 8 out of 10 of them also have air conditioners, huh?
42 percent of poor households actually own their own homes. If the bottom 25% of Americans make $22,500 or less each year when 31 years ago they made $17,550 and a house cost $23,400 then, but it costs $221,900, you are actually going to say that out of the 104% that you used above, the 9.9% already live nowhere or in a trailer park, so then the other 93.1%, out of them the 42% of the whole can be counted, right? I think when you removed the trailer-park trash then that brought your 42% up to the count of about 50% of the renters and the guys living in luxury and “well kept apartments”, own their own homes, right? Something’s wrong with your math here Cookie. Again... if 4% are homeless, 40% live renting in apartments, 9.5% in trailer homes then you already counted 53.5%, if you take 42% away from that then all you got left is 4.5%. Are you kinda sorta saying that only 4.5% of Americans that live in a house or town house rent and the rest own them? What about the cities? Isn’t that where you have the highest concentration of families? They don’t have many townhouses or single family homes in the cities, but the ones they do have you say that all but less than 5 out of 100 of the low income people living in them actually own them? Only 6 percent of poor households are overcrowded. More than two-thirds have more than two rooms per person. You show me a family of 4 (that is considered the average size now) with an 8 room apartment and I’ll bake you a cake... pffft!!!!!!!
The average poor American has more living space than the typical non-poor person in Sweden, France, or the United Kingdom. *NOTE: In France they don’t rent, all but 06.9% OWN THEIR HOMES! In France they get their education For FREE and my friends in Sweden brag that living conditions there are better than here and they laugh about our lies and politics. Actually though.. Everybody laughs about our blow-job president, Bush’s Grandfather helping Nazi Germany, rumors of Bin Ladin’s family being rescued only days after 9/11 and our own president making oil deals with them, they laugh most about idiots just like you that strive to feed the lies that turned our great nation into what it’s become today too....
The vast majority of the homes or apartments of the poor are in good repair. The term “good” and “repair” do not work together in the same sentence, the word “vast” is meaningless without a point of reference and whole cities are left almost abandoned right now. Why don’t you sell your bullshit to Detroit, go there face to face with the people and say your little story?

  Your comment is awaiting moderation.

I found your blog a few days ago and subscribed to your feed. I was pretty excited by the information that you seemed to have posted opposing government propaganda.

Now though I read this post and it is quite full of that type of propaganda.

You left way to many holes in this and I mean in just about every aspect of it.

For one, even the numbers are way off. The increase in food stamps recipients reflects only the amount still deemed eligible, but it fails to address the issues of newer regulations that forced those in need out of the program.

Another were the numbers on air-conditioners. You state an increase from 36% to 80% since 1970, what you failed to look at was the comparison between the two times you used. In 1970 they were just starting to become affordable and only the upper class citizens could afford them. Today however you need to pay $40 to dispose of a unit through local waste management facilities (this is an actual figure from an incident that happened 5 years ago), also today you can get them free on Free Cycle and through many other means like the giveaway’s in local newspapers. When was the last time you heard of anyone offering to give away a case of baby formula?

You claim vitamin equivalences, but that’s just about as bogus a claim as anyone can make. ALL tests show the exact opposite. The real results are that healthy foods cannot be afforded and are quickly being substituted with $1 double cheeseburger specials from fast food restaurants and other lower cost, yet very high in fat foods. You know the ones I’m talking about? When you watch the news at night about how the poor are stuffing their faces with junk food and getting obese and it’s all their own faults. The segment between the Burger King, Wendy’s and McDonald’s commercials that offer the “value meals”. Or the 7-11 Special on Grab 2 for just $2 that offers two big bags of chips and 2 huge soda’s (months supply of sugar & fat for less than the cost of 1/5 a trimmed raw chicken breast at Walmarts Grocery section)
Oh and the 96% of the parents that say “openly” that their children never went hungry… LOL, 100% of them know Damn well that if they did admit their children went hungry they would be removed from the home.

You find some extra time on your hands in between your accusations against those who are suffering in this economy then email me. I’ll give you my phone number and we can talk about the truth, beyond that. I’m posting you on my site and showing others what kind of people they might find themselves really facing hidden between the lines of offering truth and the rest of the what-eva’s!!!

“Whole page saved, whole page will be posted, keyword “FunkingDave + idiots” on Google to read it tomorrow night when I’m done looking up your numbers BABE!”

Reason #5) Record Number Of US Kids Face Hunger and Homelessness

A report released by National Center on Family Homelessness finds that one in 45 US children (1.6 million) are homeless, the majority under the age of seven. The Christian Science Monitor reports, “The number of homeless children in 2010 exceeded even the total in 2006, when thousands of families displaced by hurricanes Katrina and Rita produced a historic spike in homelessness.”

It doesn’t stop there. According to recent figures released by the USDA, 17.2 million American households (14.5 percent) are "food insecure,” one of the highest recorded rates since surveys were first conducted in 1995. As a result, 16.2 million American children – one in five-- face the threat of hunger. According to emergency room doctors in cities around the country, this is leading to a dramatic spike in malnourishment in babies.

Over the summer, the Boston Globe reported on shocking levels of infant malnourishment in Massachusetts. Doctors at the Boston Medical Center (BMC) reported seeing “more hungry and dangerously thin young children in the emergency room than at any time in more than a decade of surveying families.” Pediatricians in other large cities, including Baltimore, Little Rock, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia, have also seen a rise in infant and child malnourishment since 2008.

BMC doctors also warn that “rising chronic hunger threatens to leave scores of infants and toddlers with lasting learning and developmental problems.”

The Globe likened child malnourishment and hunger among Boston’s poor to levels seen in the "developing world."
