There were 45.3 million Americans living in poverty in 2013, according to new Census Bureau numbers — a statistical tie with 2012. That’s more than the entire population of California, estimated at just north of 38 million in 2012.http://dailycaller.com/2014/09/16/census...n-poverty/ I think the number is much higher than this blink.gif

Poverty defined : " is a state of lacking enough allowed free time to just be natural and live a natural life without total toil to survive . "

By Gleaning free natural growing food ,, and clean natural flowing water .


Poverty is a man made situation , brought about by greed of a few .

we all live impoverished by that standard of thinking .

I'm just saying what's true is all .

The Fed Chairman has some words of encouragement for the tens of millions of Americans who live at or below the poverty level, including that threatened with extinction class, affectionately known as "the middle." Her message? get rich.

Welcome to dear leader Obama's America. Enjoy your stay, if you can find anything to be positive about that is.

She only said that because someone else already had dibs on, "Let them eat cake."

Well here's some good news İmage

Quote: A new survey shows that 155 new billionaires were minted this year, pushing the total population to a record 2,325 – a 7 percent increase from 2013.

Credit goes to the United States – home to the most billionaires globally – where 57 new billionaires were recorded this year, according to the Wealth-X and UBS Billionaire Census 2014 released on Wednesday.

In reality, while that is commonly attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette, there is no record of this phrase ever having been uttered by her.

Yes the Credit does go to the U.S.

with what was thew profit made ?

I doubt it was the Oil Brokers ,,, right ?

Shot down in the Snow , they laid frozen until a mass grave was dug ,,
the bodies piled in it , and covered over

took about a week for those murdered at Wounded Knee to finally be buried

They had been impoverished by the U.S. Gov't's constant attempts to run them down and kill them off ,,,

they made a run for the Canadian Border to escape the U.S. Calvary's attempt to
capture and imprison them ,,,,

When they ran out of food , and on the verge of freezing to death ,,,,

They surrendered to the U.S. Calvary ,,,,

run on a march to wounded knee ,,,

where after two days ,,,, they were executed .


Everyone who has ever been at protest to the policies of the U.S.

has suffered like treatment .

These Natives were impoverished by those policies

Made by Man ,,, protected with weapons and soldiers ,,,
these policies that impoverish are held dear to the hearts of the heartless .

Where once , a people walked and gleaned their livelihood from nature
free of Charge ,,,,

Now stands the Market Place Known as Wall Street ,,,

where Global trade of natural resources is conducted

The Gov't of the time of wounded knee , promised a new world order of plenty
for everyone ,,,,

Then turned to genocide to those whom they gave that promise .

yes I know it is history

yes I understand your comment of me living in the past , is how you excuse
that past .

But get the point will you ,,, that History of the past , should clear up for you ,,,

WHAT IT REALLY IS .

it is not a President that cures or causes anything

it is the way people here THINK that causes poverty .

Right now ,,, today ,,, the Policy is to threaten people in the middle east

We see people dressed in robes with scarves over their faces ,,, making threats and
beheading people ,,,,

Are you positive that they are REAL TERRORIST on a REAL agenda ?


or are they hired Shills working for the Western Gov't's to induce
in peoples minds that there are Monsters out there that the U.S. must KILL

for the World to be safe ?

who is the monster ? The system that created the poverty and murdered at wounded knee ?

or some Muslim ten thousand miles away ?

who has the drones ?

F_CK THE GREED of Oil brokers

They are the true Monsters

It can only get worse, because dementia is on the rise and so will be the health care costs.

6th leading cause of death - 10.9 million unpaid care givers.

Quote:Along with being mentally and emotionally devastating, early onset dementia often leaves families financially destitute because it strikes during the victims’ prime earning years.

You've made a remarkably astute observation.

The disease is expensive to manage, too.

It makes me wonder if the affected patients in nursing homes are counted in the poverty statistics. I don't know the answer. Nursing home patients are left out of some government stats.

The disease can be reversed, but it's not likely this knowledge will become widespread enough to have much of an effect, if any, on the general population.

Here is a video about coconut oil and also a more concentrated compound can be quite beneficial.





Watch this video for a real treat on how a personal favorite music list can wake up people with dementia.

To BAG:

Yep, and there is a 20 year lead up (leeway time to tackle this problem) to dementia and due to lack of funding and research, no real progress had been made.
