Our government lies to us.

Last week, the U.S. government published their usual weekly figures that reported 20,000 new jobs. Where? Unemployment rate lower. Prove it!

Only people receiving an unemployment check are counted; as soon as they cease receiving that valuable source of income they are no longer counted as unemployed. Even though they have no job.

Our national debt (money we owe) is over $23,100,000,000,000 as of Jan. 10 and growing. The estimated 5 million homeless Americans are never counted nor recognized.

In 1991, the Soviet Union went bankrupt. When will the United States cease to exist?
