I really wish I could hear these questions being asked to our "leaders" everyday till they answered them. But our "free Press" has not got the courage to ask these.


#1 The U.S. dollar has lost well over 95 percent of its value since the Federal Reserve was created in 1913. The Fed has failed time and time again from preventing big financial bubbles from being created and then eventually bursting. About the only thing the Federal Reserve seems to be good at is creating more government debt that the rest of us have to pay for. So what possible justification is there for allowing the Federal Reserve to continue to issue our currency and run our economy?
#2 Ten years ago, the “employment rate” in the United States was about 64%. Since then it has been constantly declining and now the “employment rate” in the United States is only about 58%. So where did all of those jobs go? Is this what we can expect from “globalism”?
#3 Thousands of dead birds are falling out of the sky and millions of dead fish are washing ashore all over the globe. So does this mean that there is something seriously wrong with the planet?
#4 If the U.S. economy is getting better, then why did the number of Americans filing for bankruptcy rise another 9 percent in 2010? Why won’t our government officials be straight with us and tell us the real truth about the economy?
#5 Would a failure to raise the debt ceiling really “have catastrophic economic consequences that would last for decades” or is U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner just blowing off a lot of hot air again?
#6 If 71 percent of the American people are against it, and only 18 percent of them are for it, then why in the world are our representatives in Congress overwhelmingly in favor of raising the debt ceiling again?
#7 Will a combination of extreme weather, soaring agricultural commodity prices and rising oil prices lead to a devastating global food shortage at some point in the next few years?
#8 In Algeria, hordes of young people are throwing fire bombs and are shouting slogans such as “Bring us Sugar!“ Are these the kinds of food riots that we should expect to see around the globe as food gets tight this year?
#9 Over the last couple of years, lawmakers in at least 10 U.S. states have introduced legislation that would allow state commerce to be conducted with gold and silver coins. Could this be the beginning of a new trend?
#10 When German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that Germany will do“whatever is needed to support the euro” is that supposed to make all of us feel better about the stability of the failing European currency? If the Euro does fail, won’t that cause another financial meltdown like we saw back in 2008?
#11 Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs. How in the world could we allow that to happen?
#12 According to a recent Gallup survey, 7 out of every 10 Americansbelieve that religion is losing influence in the United States. So exactly what does that say about our society?
#13 Now that the State of Illinois has passed a 66 percent increase in the state income tax, how long will it be before other states start passing draconian income tax hikes?
#14 Shouldn’t we be at least a little bit concerned that China has developed a new ballistic missile that can completely destroy a U.S. aircraft carrier nearly 2,000 miles out to sea? Has China become a military threat that we need to start taking very, very seriously?
#15 In 2006, no U.S. banks failed. In 2009, 140 U.S. banks failed. So did things get better in 2010? No. In 2010, 157 U.S. banks failed. Do does that mean our financial system is getting healthier or does that mean our financial system is coming apart at the seams?
#16 On January 1st, the very first of the Baby Boomers started to reach the age of 65. Now more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will be turning 65 every single day for the next 19 years. So where in the world are we going to get all the money we need to pay them the retirement benefits that we have promised them? Isn’t the Social Security system essentially one gigantic Ponzi scheme?
#17 According to a shocking recent survey, 40 percent of all U.S. doctorsplan to bail out of the profession over the next three years. So how in the world is our health care system going to continue to function if that happens?
#18 Why is the federal government spending approximately 6.85 million dollarsper minute if our founders intended for us to have a “limited central government”?
#19 Should we be glad that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency want to lower the amount of fluoride in our drinking water, or should we be furious with them for poisoning us with super high levels of fluoride for all of these years?
#20 The U.S. trade deficit with China during the month of August alone was more than 4,600 times larger than the U.S. trade deficit with China was for the entire year of 1985. Do you think perhaps we should all not be buying so much stuff with “made in China” stamped on it?
#21 If the federal government stopped all borrowing today and began right at this moment to repay the U.S. national debt at a rate of one dollar per second, it would take over 440,000 years to pay off the U.S. national debt. So does anyone out there actually still believe that the U.S. national debt will be paid off someday?
#22 1180 new snowfall records were set in the United States just this past week. So does that mean that global warming isn’t true after all?
#23 If the U.S. economy is getting better, then why are an all-time record 43.2 million Americans now on food stamps? Are middle class Americans being impoverished by design?
#24 What in the world will a “security perimeter” around the United States and Canada actually look like? Are our leaders slowly trying to turn North America into another version of the EU?
#25 How in the world can Facebook be worth 50 billion dollars? Is Goldman Sachs trying to pull a big joke on all the rest of us?

The answer to question 16 is most people put in about 5 million dollars into the social security system,with compounded interest.They only receive about 150,000 in benefits.Where is the rest at?

The value of Facebook is based on all that personal information being suddenly available.

I cannot remember if it was Facebook or Hotmail/MSN that was hacked last year and the information put online. What was interesting though was that the list of those who had downloaded the information was also placed online...it almost exactly mirrored the Fortune 500 list of top businesses.

Everytime you add an app to your Facebook page you agree to have your personal information shared. Once Facebook becomes a publically traded company how do you think they are going to make money?

Farmville?

you may want to review your math...............

if this was posible then why wouldn't you put away the required 6.9% of your own paycheck and you would magically have 5 million to retire with????????????

please do the research before making claims.

Some quick math-

50k x 7% = 3500 + 3500/year at 40 years with a return of say 7% interest per year compounded yearly = $800,000

So not quite 5 million but a hell of a lot more than you would get from the government.

Oh well, that social security must have another purpose than actually going for retirement of the citizens.

Hmmmm, where is all the money that went in? Oh, they have a huge room of file cabinets with worthless IOU's

And someone was saying?
