Seven Things To Think About in the Coming Election

This from Wynton Hall:
1.  Every day, the U.S. government takes in $6 billion and spends $10 billion. This means that every day the federal government spends $4 billion more dollars than it has.
2.  The real unemployment rate is a jaw-dropping 11 percent.
3.  Every fifth man you pass on your way to work is now out of work.
4.  College graduates are now 34% less likely to find a job under Obama than they were under President George W. Bush.
5.  Every seventh person you pass on the sidewalk now relies on food stamps.
6.  The ravages of the Obama economy now mean that more Americans live under the federal poverty line than at any time in U.S. history since records have been kept.
7.  Under President Barack Obama, every fifth child in America now lives in poverty.
A few years back I read about an Ethiopian immigrant who wrote back home about all the poor, fat people that lived in America.

When the government opens up the buffet line don't expect lots of self-restraint when it comes to tying on the feed bag.
