78 Percent Of U.S. Workers Are Living ‘Paycheck To Paycheck’ And 71 Percent Of Them Are In Debt

78 Percent Of U.S. Workers Are Living ‘Paycheck To Paycheck’ And 71 Percent Of Them Are In Debt:

Are you living paycheck to paycheck?  Is so, you are just like most other hard working Americans.  As you will see below, 78 percent of full-time workers in the United States say that they are living paycheck to paycheck.  That is the highest figure ever recorded, and it is yet more evidence that the middle class is under an increasing amount of stress.  The cost of living is rising at a much faster pace than our paychecks are, and more families are falling out of the middle class with each passing month.  Unfortunately, this is something that the mainstream media really doesn’t want to talk about these days.  Instead, they just keep having us focus on the soaring financial markets which are being grossly artificially inflated by global central banks.

When I came across the numbers that I am about to share with you I was actually quite stunned.  I knew that things were not great in “the real economy”, but I didn’t expect that the number of Americans living paycheck to paycheck would actually be rising.  But that is precisely what a brand new survey that was just released by CareerBuilder is saying…

Seventy-eight percent of full-time workers said they live paycheck to paycheck, up from 75 percent last year, according to a recent report from CareerBuilder.

Two-Thirds of Americans Say This Is Lowest Point in US History They Can Remember:

In new poll, a majority say they can’t remember a time when their levels of stress over healthcare, the economy, and social divisions were higher

A majority of Americans surveyed in a study of stress levels, released on Wednesday, said they consider the present day to be the lowest point in U.S. history, and indicated that the future of the nation is a major source of stress in their lives.

Out of 3,440 respondents surveyed in August by the American Psychological Association, fifty-nine percent said they can’t remember a worse time in the nation’s history. The people surveyed included Americans who had lived through World War II, the Vietnam War, the September 11 attacks, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Former CIA Agent Philip Giraldi: Pandering to Israel Has Got to Stop

Pandering to Israel Has Got to Stop:

Pledges of loyalty to Israel are un-American
By Philip Giraldi

Most Americans have no idea of just how powerful Israeli and Jewish interests are. Two recent stories out of Kansas and Texas illustrate exactly how supporters of Israel in the United States are ready, willing and able to subvert the existing constitutional and legal protections that uphold the right to fair and impartial treatment for all American citizens.

The friends of Israel appear to believe that anyone who is unwilling to do business with Israel or even with the territories that it has illegally occupied should not be allowed to do business in any capacity with federal, state or even local governments. Constitutional guarantees of freedom of association for every American are apparently not valid if one particular highly favored foreign country is involved.

Russia’s strategic bomber to remain unrivaled for decades: Russian general

Russia’s strategic bomber to remain unrivaled for decades: Russian general:

Russia’s upgraded Tupolev Tu-160M2 strategic bombers will remain unrivaled in terms of technology for the next 40 years, says Russian Colonel General Viktor Bondarev, who commanded the country’s air force until recently.

Speaking to Russia’s TASS news agency on Wednesday, Bondarev, who chairs the Federation Council Defense and Security Committee, said even the first generation of the Soviet-era aircraft could still hold its ground against similar Western designs.

“For example, the strategic Tu-160 missile carrier is still unrivaled in the world and so many technologies will be incorporated in it when its production is resumed that it will remain a super-new plane for another 40 years,” said the Aerospace Force ex-commander, who led the force for two years before resigning in September.

H/t reader Squodgy:

“When the USSR collapsed, courtesy of the U.S. funded Obama led Mujahideen, Reagan called for openness.
The US generals visited Moscow to see their Russian aviation opposition, only to discover the TU-160 swing wing “BLACKJACK” was capable of Mach 2.
Yet their own North American Rockwell swing wing B-1 Bomber failed to reach Mach 1.
British genius Barnes Wallis came up with the concept, which was successfully incorporated in such brilliant flying machines as the Grumman F-14 TOMCAT & the BAe Panavia TORNADO.

Now, it seems the U.S. will be trainling behind for 40 years.
