BarackObama's "Change We Can Believe In" - Oh yeh?

-A picture is worth a thousand words.  In the video below the picture is worth over 31 million Americans suffering from unemployment.  Officially the unemployment fugres stand at 9.7 percent but as we all know and most media reports the true figure is at 17 percent when taking under employment into account.  Real figures need to be put out by this Administration  which would be a change from previous Administrations.  But then again, that would be "change we can believe in".

Below this video will be another change we can believe in - more homeless Americans as reported by MSNBC.

For a larger view(suggested) here

And if unemployment isn't bad enough - now see how it affects homelessness.
Homeless men and women stand in line to be searched before being bused to local churches serving as shelters in Riverhead, N.Y....

And our government is saying we are coming out of the Recession.  Instead of "change we can believe in" I would like to just hear something "I can believe".

  1. Very sad commentary but I guess it parallels the quality of our leaders ie. sad

    It does not take much in the way of powers of observation to see that anger against what we called “the Establishment” in the 1960s is rising. A good deal is correctly focused on how banks have looted the taxpayer; a lot of it is more inchoate but if anything even more virulent: anger about downward mobility, about the rising gap between the rich and everyone else.

  2. Try watching this Obama...

    William Black On Why "Recurrent Crises Will Get Bigger And More Disastrous" And Why All Talk Of Change By The Administration Is Just Posturing

    The ever insightful William Black sits down with PBS' Paul Solman to note that most of the too big to fail banks are currently insolvent, that mortgage fraud is pervasive and lender complicit, and that unlike in previous systemic crashes, not only person has been indicted for the trillions in mortgage fraud perpetrated. "At this stage we have zero convictions, we have zero indictments." But the most damning indictment from Black: that Congress managed to extort FASB to change their rules just so that the big banks would continue to appear healthy and solvent, even as unworthy execs made tens of billions in bonuses.

  3. Cars: The latest form of affordable housing

    At the precise moment that President Obama was proclaiming how well his stimulus package worked, a news story crossed my computer screen saying that 10% of Los Angeles County's 50,000 homeless are now sleeping in their cars each night. Multiply that number of car-dwellers to include the whole nation, and that's a lot of people who will no doubt sleep -- albeit behind the wheel -- more soundly tonight knowing just how much better off they are than our President thinks they would have been.

  4. Keep talking, keep smiling....
    why would anyone be frustrated by your sit back and watch policies...

    Terry Hoskins] used a bulldozer two weeks ago to level the home he'd built, and the sprawling country home is now rubble, buried under a coating of snow.

    "As far as what the bank is going to get, I plan on giving them back what was on this hill exactly (as) it was," Hoskins said. "I brought it out of the ground and I plan on putting it back in the ground."

    Hoskins' business in Amelia is scheduled to go up for auction on March 2, and he told Fuller he's considering leveling that building, too.

    too bad you did not do the same for your bankster buddies....
