What if we were to put it all in perspective?


The population of Earth is about 7.125 billion (2013).  So, Ebola death toll tops 4,900 as virus spreads: WHO

Homeostasis will be achieved.

Next up…. Global Warming-Climate Change

More on the bifurcation fallacy to follow.

This is “hope”? Well worthless “change” is mostly all that many have left…


50% Of American Workers Make Less Than $28,031 A Year

…and to think, further “fundamental” decreases in earnings is coming via “Immigration Reform” a.k.a.” AMNESTY” making certain the  ineligible “class”receives less than 57 cents of every dollar they earn. While they also support others, having more disposable income when figuring in the value of their food stamps, rent and housing subsidies and all the other government benefits. Corrupt government and election fraud has its consequences. If the Average pay:is $43,000 and the Median pay is $28,000 annually, maybe more on assistance means more under government control? So why not flooded America with even more unskilled and low income invaders? (Looks like the agenda is showing — just as it always did).

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog,

The Social Security Administration has just released wage statistics for 2013, and the numbers are startling.  Last year, 50 percent of all American workers made less than $28,031, and 39 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000.  If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make $20,000.  So the fact that 39 percent of all workers made less than that amount is rather telling.  This is more evidence of the declining quality of the jobs in this country.  In many homes in America today, both parents are working multiple jobs in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Our paychecks are stagnant while the cost of living just continues to soar.  And the jobs that are being added to the economy pay a lot less than the jobs lost in the last recession.  In fact, it has been estimated that the jobs that have been created since the last recession pay an average of 23 percent less than the jobs that were lost.  We are witnessing the slow-motion destruction of the middle class, and very few of our leaders seem to care.

The “average” yearly wage in America last year was just $43,041.  But after accounting for inflation, that was actually worse than the year before

American paychecks shrank last year, just-released data show, further eroding the public’s purchasing power, which is so vital to economic growth.

Average pay for 2013 was $43,041 — down $79 from the previous year when measured in 2013 dollars. Worse, average pay fell $508 below the 2007 level, my analysis of the new Social Security Administration data shows.

Flat or declining average pay is a major reason so many Americans feel that the Great Recession never ended for them. A severe job shortage compounds that misery not just for workers but also for businesses trying to profit from selling goods and services.

Average pay declined in 59 of the 60 levels of worker pay the government reports each October.

And please keep in mind that “average pay” is really skewed by the millionaires and billionaires at the top end of the spectrum.

Median pay in 2013 was just $28,031.02.  That means that 50 percent of American workers made less than that number, and 50 percent of American workers made more than that number.

Here are some more numbers from the report that the Social Security Administration just released…

-39 percent of American workers made less than $20,000 last year.

-52 percent of American workers made less than $30,000 last year.

-63 percent of American workers made less than $40,000 last year.

-72 percent of American workers made less than $50,000 last year.

I don’t know about you, but those numbers are deeply troubling to me.

It has been estimated that it takes approximately $50,000 a year to support a middle class lifestyle for a family of four, and so the fact that 72 percent of all workers make less than that amount shows how difficult it is for families that try to get by with just a single breadwinner.

The way that our economy is structured now, both parents usually have to work as hard as they can just to pay the bills.

But there was one group of Americans that did see their incomes actually increase last year.

Those making over 50 million dollars had their pay increase by an average of $12.8 million in 2013.

For everyone else, the news was not good.

And of course this is a trend that has been going on for a long time.

Posted below is a chart that comes from the Federal Reserve.  It shows how real median household income in the United States has declined since the year 2000…

 

Meanwhile, the cost of living has continued to rise at a steady pace.

Needless to say, this is putting a tremendous squeeze on the middle class.  With each passing day, more Americans are losing their spots in the middle class and this has pushed government dependence to an all-time high.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans now live in a home that receives money from the government each month.  This is completely and totally unsustainable, but our long-term economic problems just keep getting worse.

Our politicians have stood by as millions upon millions of good paying jobs have been shipped out of the country.  Millions of other middle class jobs have been lost to technology.  This has resulted in intense competition for the middle class jobs that remain.

And at this point we are even losing lots of lower paying retail jobs.  For example, it is being reported that Sears plans to close 110 more stores and lay off more than 6,000 workers.  Sears says that the report “isn’t accurate”, but it isn’t denying that stores will be closed either..

In an email to USA Today, Sears spokesman Howard Riefs said the store count and closures “isn’t accurate,” but did not provide store closures or layoff numbers.

“As we stated in our (second quarter earnings report), we disclosed that we would be closing unprofitable stores as leases expire and in some cases will accelerate closings when it is economically prudent. And that we would consider closing additional stores during the remainder of the year,” Riefs said. “Make no mistake, we believe the store will continue to play an integral role in our transformation, however, if a store is not generating a profit, it is straightforward that the store should be considered for closure.”

No matter how many stores Sears does end up closing over the next few months, the truth is that our economy is a complete and total mess at this point.

Our politicians and the mainstream media are trying to put a happy face on everything, but the cold, hard numbers prove that we are not anywhere close to where we were prior to the last recession.

Because it is so difficult to find a good job in America today, I often recommend to people that they should consider starting their own businesses.

But thanks to the bureaucratic control freaks in the Obama administration and in our state governments, small business ownership in America today is at an all-time low.  It is almost as if they don’t want the “little guy” to win.  Every avenue of prosperity for the middle class is under assault, and there does not appear to be much hope that this will change any time soon.

And the truly frightening thing is that this is about as good as things are going to get for the middle class.  We are rapidly approaching the next major wave of our long-term economic decline, but that is a topic for a future article.

Biological Health Hazard, Fatal Respiratory Virus – Enterovirus 68 (EV-D68): New Jersey


Pandemic Hazard – Enterovirus (EV-D68): Disease Outbreak, Health Threat

Epidemic Hazard  – Enterovirus Respiratory Virus (EV-D68)
North-America- USA | State of New Jersey, Hoboken, Joseph F. Brandt Primary School 
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location:  N 40° 44.854, W 74° 1.804
Deaths: unknown
Humans Infected:  1
Human Population Affected: Pandemic – Disease Outbreak (Actual numbers now censored)

Biological Hazard in USA on Saturday, 25 October, 2014 at 05:42 (05:42 AM) UTC

A student at the Brandt elementary school in Hoboken has been diagnosed by a doctor as having a strain of the enterovirus, city spokesman Juan Melli confirmed on Friday evening. However, Melli emphasized that there were over 100 known strains of enterovirus, only one of which has been associated with deaths of schoolchildren in New Jersey and elsewhere. He could not say whether the child does or does not have the dangerous D68 strain. A letter sent home to parents on Friday said the school had been informed of the situation Friday morning, and the student had not been in school since Oct. 20. The letter said, “Please keep in mind enteroviruses are one of many common viruses that people come in contact with every day. The student is being cared of at home, has not required hospitalization or lab testing for enterovirus D68, and has not been in school since Monday…our school staff has already been in contact with Hudson County public health officials for recommendations to appropriately disinfect surfaces within our school.” The affected third-floor classroom will also be cleaned Saturday. The Brandt School educates children in PreK-3 through kindergarten. The virus has raised concerns because of young children who have died from one strain. Kids with asthma and other respiratory conditions are more susceptible.

Biological Health Hazard – Viral Meningitis Outbreak: California


Biological Hazard  – Meningitis (viral)

North-America – USA | State of California, Orange County,  John Wayne Airport
Bio-hazard Level: 3/4 High
Location:  N 33° 40.829, W 117° 51.613
Deaths: 0
Infected: unknown

Biological Hazard in USA on Saturday, 25 October, 2014 at 05:29 (05:29 AM) UTC.

2-year-old girl with possible meningitis caused Orange County Fire Authority personnel to briefly contain a plane Friday afternoon at John Wayne Airport. Firefighters at the airport were notified around 2:30 p.m. that a 2-year-old girl aboard WestJet Airlines Flight 1254 had tested positive for meningitis, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Larry Kurtz said. “There was concern about it (meningitis), but we did not diagnose it,” Kurtz said at the airport. “We were notified (by the airline) before the plane landed.” The girl had flu-like symptoms, a fever and some back pain. She was taken by ambulance to Children’s Hospital of Orange County, he said. Information was not available regarding where the girl lives. The plane was “contained” for about 20 minutes as paramedics treated the patient in consultation with the Orange County Health Care Agency, Kurtz said. Other passengers remained seated, he said. The girl is in “mild” condition and had “mild symptoms,” he said. She will be diagnosed by doctors, Kurtz said. If it turns out she has meningitis, passengers on the plane, who left contact information, will be notified, he said. The 2-year-old girl was discharged from the hospital later that night. Fire authorities said there were no public health concerns. The plane has been returned to service and passengers aboard continued on their way, Kurtz said. “As far as I know, they (the airlines) have not decontaminated it,” he said. Kurtz said there were 125 passengers plus crew aboard the plane. The plane wasn’t quarantined and passengers were held about 30 minutes, airport spokeswoman Jenny Wedge said. “We understand that a young guest was ill, but it’s not known what the illness is or was,” WestJet spokesman Robert Palmer said in an email to the Register. “Local health officials cleared the aircraft and the other guests.” Meningitis is a contagious inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, according to the website of the Mayo Clinic medical center in Rochester, Minn. The swelling associated with meningitis often triggers symptoms such as headaches, fever and a stiff neck. Most cases of meningitis in the U.S. are caused by a viral infection, but bacterial and fungal infections also can lead to meningitis, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Biological Health Hazard – U.S. Cases of Hemorrhagic Fever (Ebola virus): New Jersey


Epidemic Hazard  – Hemorrhagic Fever (Ebola virus)

North America  - USA | State of New Jersey, Newark, University Hospital in Newark
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location: N 40° 44.415, W 74° 11.445
Deaths:  0
Infected:  1

Affected: under-reported

Biological Hazard in USA on Saturday, 25 October, 2014 at 05:24 (05:24 AM) UTC.

The health care worker who had been under quarantine earlier today has developed a fever and is being evaluated at University Hospital in Newark for the possibility of Ebola, according to the N.J. Department of Health. The unnamed health worker had appeared healthy when she landed at Newark Liberty International Airport Friday, officials said, but she was was quarantined anyway because of her proximity to Ebola victims. Officials said the woman was a U.S. citizen who began her trip back to the United States in Sierra Leone, one of the three West African countries struggling to contain the outbreak of the deadly virus. She was the first airline traveler to be quarantined under the policy announced earlier in the day by the governors of New Jersey and New York. She is not a New Jersey resident. She spent her initial hours of quarantine in the small Quarantine Station operated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the airport, according to Donna Leusner, spokeswoman for the Department of Health. As of Friday evening, she had been transferred to University Hospital in Newark – one of the three designated hospitals for treating any Ebola case in New Jersey – and was undergoing a medical evaluation.

While federal policy subjects anyone who has traveled to West Africa report their temperature daily for 21 days after arrival in the United States, Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo jointly announced that any passenger who had contact with Ebola victims in West Africa would be placed under a 21-day quarantine, no matter how healthy they appeared. The move by the two governors came the day after a Doctors Without Borders physician was hospitalized with Ebola. He had flown in through JFK International Airport, and was healthy upon his arrival. His subsequent contracts and movements through the city became the subject of public health concern, triggering concerns about everything from the subways to a Brooklyn bowling alley. Newark-Liberty and JFK are among the five nationally-designated airports permitted to receive travelers from Ebola-affected West African nations. Christie said New York and New Jersey are going above and beyond the CDC guidelines. “Our states have to be the most vigilant and we’re going to be the most vigilant,” the governor said. Those ordered to undergo quarantine will be required to stay in their homes for 21 days, Christie said. He said a “more rigorous and appropriate” screening process is needed at the airports, since people can’t be counted on to voluntarily quarantine themselves. He cited the case of NBC Chief Medical correspondent Nancy Snyderman, who broke the Centers of Disease Control’s recommendation of voluntary quarantine and was seen shopping and eating in her hometown of Princeton. “You don’t have to hit us across the head more than once,” he said. Cuomo called it an evolving situation that requires as much caution as possible.

More Attemps to Insanely Deconstruct the World as We know it.


A Cultural Marxist Tries To Deconstruct Japan. Guess What, He’s American

(Excerpt)

The same forces deconstructing the United States are targeting the most successful ethno-state the world has ever known—Japan. The country politely insists on remaining a successful nation-state with one language, culture, and race, despite the relentless attacks which simultaneously deny and decry the uniqueness of the country. In the eyes of Cultural Marxists and globalists, this living rebuttal to multiculturalism cannot be allowed to exist.

A leading voice in the fight to destroy Japan: U.S.-born Jake Adelstein, a long-time resident in Japan. Adelstein [Tweet him] wages a war against the existence of the Japanese from his column at the English-language newspaper The Japan Times, which is helpfully slugged Dark Side Of The Rising Sun. The essence of a recent column was that the Japanese government is illegitimate because figures in the Cabinet “socialized” with activists whom Adelstein finds “disturbing.”

… The real target: Japanese nationhood itself. And the tactic to be used, as you might expect, is the suppression of free speech.

This fight is international, whether it involves Hungary, Japan, or the United States. It’s not just about a war on whites anymore. It’s about a war on all peoples who want control over their own destiny—and who think that citizens should decide their own fate, not globalists and their Main Stream Media lackeys.
