From Rick Congress:
It's important to look at the political and economic trajectory of the USA over the last 50 years (it's possible to go back farther,but does it matter?). Year after year income inequality has grown as industry was shut down and/or went overseas and high paying working class jobs disappeared, leading to the shrinkage of union membership from a high of 35% in the 1950s to something less than 12% (and most of that in government services). Even though only 35% of the workforce was organized during the peak years of the AFL-CIO, it forced many employers to offer higher wages and benefits just to keep the unions out...Then there's this from JTA:
The share of taxes paid by the rich and big business has gone down. Surveys show a decline in social mobility. All in all the standard of living is lower than decades ago and is getting lower and the amount of wealth concentrated in a few hands is staggering...
There's more: The infrastructure has been allowed to collapse. Privatizations schemes which rip off the public and give no benefit for their fake "services" are promoted: For profit prisons, youth detention camps, mercenaries disguised as "security firms" operate (as we know) in Iraq, Afghanistan, in this country, and who knows where else...
What's my point? For the last 50 years everything has been going to hell. The rich get richer. Everyone else gets poorer, real democracy declines, corruption is now public policy, America is the world's warmonger state and low income youth are the cannon fodder. With no jobs, many "volunteer" because of lack of options. The Democrats are just as responsible for all of this as the Republicans...
At least 139 of the Forbes 400 are JewishNow let's move along to this from Jewish Achievement Blog
By Jacob Berkman · October 5, 2009
I've spent the past couple of days buried in Google, going through Forbes' recently released list of the country's 400 richest citizens and trying to figure out who is Jewish.
This list is by no means an exact science. But those who we considered Jewish were those who were of Jewish descent or those who openly identified as Jews either personally or in thier giving. There are a number of folks on this list below that we were unsure about, and they are denoted with asterisks.
Some quick stats: We are reasonably certain that 139 of the richest 400 Americans are Jewish, including 20 of the richest 50. Those top 20 control some $211.8 billion in personal wealth.
During Jewish American Heritage Month in May, we honor our Jewish countrymen. Their numbers are small, roughly 5 million or 6 million in a country of more than 300 million...So it's clear that the higher Jewry and its (overwhelmingly Zionist) "achievers" (most prominently in subversive and salacious Hollywood and mass media, in the American consumer-gouging and notoriously worker-exploiting garment and retail industries, and additionally, in the political realm) have risen in America, the further and faster America has declined.
Jews built the majority of our great retailing institutions like Macy’s and Bloomingdales. Even today, more recent names such as Home Depot and Costco have their roots in Jewish merchants.
Our garment industry, with names like Levis, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and others, changed the United States from a country in which garments were made by hand, one at a time, into the world’s leader in ready-to-wear and high fashion...
The three largest broadcasting networks — ABC, NBC and CBS — were built from the efforts of two visionary Jewish entrepreneurs, David Sarnoff and William Paley. Sarnoff in particular saw the potential to convert “wireless,” then used for ship-to-shore communications, into a “broadcast” medium distributed via a “network.”
The technology for making movies was invented by the non-Jewish Thomas Edison, the Lumiere brothers and others, but it was Jewish entrepreneurs who saw the potential to create an industry, making feature-length films, distributing them internationally, and building and sustaining the studios. From that arose the vital role played by Jewish movie producers, directors and actors.
So many of the most important U.S. newspapers and book publishers came from or were shaped largely by Jews — notably The New York Times, the Washington Post, Random House, and Simon and Schuster. And in winning 51 percent of the Pulitzer Prizes for non-fiction, we confirm the importance of Jews in news reporting.
Is that proof that Jewry, infamous for its subversive hatred of Christianity, contempt for Christian moral authority, and disdain for the "soft" peace and prosperity-loving general Christian and Western civilization ethos, caused the decline of America? Not in and of itself, but a pattern is clear: Jewry has been thrown out of countries the world over for centuries, and unless its endless conflicts and "pogroms" are all the fault of its "goy" surroundings and not its own pathological behavior and racist religo-ideology (a fantastical assertion and mathematically minuscule possibility) the preponderance of evidence suggests Jewry (and its lowlife Gentile Left-Right Zionist-sympathetic collaborators) are indeed the decisive component in America's steep decline, and have been for quite some time.
Indeed, the reality of Jewry's pernicious role in America is additionally confirmed by the strong case that the Israel lobby was the primary instigator of America's deepening Mideast conflicts, starting with the Iraq war and escalating almost daily -- conflicts which have accelerated America's destructive militarization, its loss of moral authority the world over, and its domestic political decline to what is now a break neck pace.
The case is strong and clear: acting as the trojan horse for Judeofascism, organized Jewry's rise in America, pitilessly driven by insatiable greed and a fanatical compulsion for subversion, pathological conquest and blind destruction, not only correlates with America's decay and steep decline, but shares a decisive causal relationship with its downfall, as well.
