Even Worse Than We Thought?

***It amazes me that there are still so many die-hard Obama sympathizers who try to explain away his utter failure of a presidency, and even more ludicrous, acknowledge it but blame it on Bush. That borders on psychosis, in my opinion. There is a great article over at American Thinker that posits that Obama's economic record is even worse than we thought.

Now, six years later, the degree to which Barack Obama has failed, as seen in the data, is quite staggering.
Consider the wealth gap.  According to a report from the Pew Research Center, in 2014 upper income households had almost seven times the wealth of middle class households.  That is the largest gap between these respective groups in the three decades the Fed has collected such data.  Yes, it's even higher than the "Evil 80s" under Reagan. 
Uh, that wasn't supposed to happen!

***Rutter-in-Chief identified in pedophile's lawsuit. Why doesn't this surprise me? You Clinton worshipers - honestly, aren't you just a little embarrassed?

Bill Clinton identified in lawsuit against his former friend and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had 'regular' orgies at his Caribbean compound that the former president visited multiple times

  • The former president was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, a financier who was arrested in 2008 for soliciting underage prostitutes
  • A new lawsuit has revealed how Clinton took multiple trips to Epstein's private island where he 'kept young women as sex slaves'
  • Clinton was also apparently friends with a woman who collected naked pictures of underage girls for Epstein to choose from
  • He hasn't cut ties with that woman, however, and invited her to Chelsea's wedding
Notice where this article is from - the Daily Mail. You really don't expect OUR media to cover it, do you?

1. Keep track of spending.
2. Create a budget.
3. Pay down credit card debt.
4. Focus on retirement.

As the writer says, this all seems pretty obvious, but a surprising number of people aren't doing it. We were pretty late to the party, but we're getting our financial house in order now.

***  Love it. :-)

47 years

Two of America's brightest young ski prospects were killed Monday when an avalanche struck the Austrian Alps slopes where they were training for an international competition.
Ronnie Berlack, 20, of Franconia, N.H., and Bryce Astle, 19, of Sandy, Utah, died in the incident near the Rettenbach glacier near Soelden, the venue for the annual season-opening World Cup races. Four other skiers who were practicing with them managed to ski out of the massive slide and emerged unscathed
Prayers for their families. 

“God...has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Eph. 1:3, emphasis added).
Christians hold a dual citizenship. We are citizens of earth, but, more importantly, we are also citizens of Heaven.
It's been said that some Christians are so heavenly minded, they're no earthly good. But usually the opposite is true. Many Christians are so enamored with this present world that they no longer look forward to heaven. They have everything they want right here. The health, wealth, and prosperity doctrine has convinced them that Christians can have it all, and they pursue “the good life” with a vengeance.
Despite the prevalence of such thinking, the old Negro spiritual well says, “This world is not my home. I'm just a passin' through.”
