Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming told The Daily Caller that, ever since President Barack Obama’s re-election last Tuesday, he has been advising Americans to play it safe financially because he believes the economy — and the state of the country — may soon get much worse. Fleming said he’s telling concerned constituents and business owners to “not extend yourselves in debt, make sure that you pay off things, don’t get into debt with credit cards, stay as liquid as possible. Don’t take risk, and don’t get into debt. You need to stay less vulnerable economically over the next

I still feel like I´m living in a nightmare. I´m still sick with anxiety and anger over the disaster that has befallen this nation on November 6.

Good cloth-coat Republicans don´t riot.
Rich Liberals don´t riot.
Rioters, ergo, will be Obama voters.

what´s "if country keeps going down the same path"! The country just voted for no
change! As far as riots are concerned, many
people don´t need a reason, they are always in readiness to justify their stand whether correct or not. Look at Chicago. People kill each other for no reason - ex. children
sitting on porches, or just out walking.

Don´t ever do what I did---make yourself sick over an election. My stomach is in a big angry knot. "I need a small vacation." Perhaps a self imposed news blackout might help me.

Things will get worse, but how do you play it safe, with the currency destroyed, and few alternatives. With democracy and those that are responsible and save in the minority, everything will be redistributed as fast as it is deposited in the bank.

fta: After Obama’s re-election, Fleming said now it looks like “the American people chose to continue down that road, despite the fact that we have other countries ahead of us, like Greece, that are suffering massively.”

Call me a pessimist, but there are enough people in this country who want "free" stuff and no responsibility that going down that roar (at least for a while) is inevitable. There are some people who, despite all evidence to the contrary, will continue to believe that they can live in this make believe socialist utopia that the Liberals keep verbally dangling in front of them. It is likely that they will need to see the utter devastation that such a course will bring before they realize that their utopia is simply a fantasy -- and even then, there will be some who will still believe that it is all Bush´s fault.

The best advice in here is to stay out of debt... and keep your powder dry, I might add.

Obama signed an exe. order a few weeks ago authorizing him to seize a bank if they´re doing business with Iran.That could be virtually any bank and who knows what he would do with the banks assets if he did seize them.
There´s no ironclad place for your money,except under the bed or house safe,which a lot of people have now.

Dodd/Frank was supposed to stop too big to fail but capitalone recently bought ing driect and nobody noticed.

Fleming is correct. I have been preaching the same thing to my family and friends for years. It´s time to be very frugal and debt-free. Of course as more and more people realize this it will probably curtail any recovery. If the people who still have some money to spend delay buying a newer car or taking the grandchildren to Disneyworld, etc. it will certainly be felt (and there are millions of us).

Believing that at some point in the downward spiral the "gimmes" will have reality slap them upside their heads is believing in a fantasy. Look to Greece for evidence. As near the bottom as their economy is, it´s the socialists, the "gimmes" that are rioting to stop any meaningful recovery efforts. Won´t be any different here. Changing this country´s direction, if it ever happens, will be a long, drawn out, violent campaign that lasts two generations, at a minimum. We´re out gunned by the majority of the media and our educational system and soon to be out numbered in population. My optimism died Tuesday.

It´s the looming inflation problem that will kick off the riots. Once it gets to the point where the average eater can only buy a couple buckets of KFC with his entire monthly EBT balance all hell is gonna break loose. If you don´t have at least six months of food and water and the means to protect it at the ready, I´d hurry to make it so.

It will be years before we reach the situation Argentina or Greece are experiencing. However, look for inflation, higher unemployment, and new fees (or higher fees) for government services. Probably like the Carter Years, but worse.

PS: I have heard some doctors have come up with a new way to make time for certain patients. For $100 a month, you can prepay for services. Puts you at the front of the line, instead of spending hours in the waiting room. I like it!

If the House does not cave & if the riots start America might wake up. There are 2 lines of thought: 1. Let the bottom fall out & riots begin or 2. Keep our conservative congressmen teaching the remaining listeners(young especially) what our Republic is & how it started. Romney´s campaign did not teach about our nation´s history or what would happen if we didn´t awaken. Late term abortions should have been explained on ads & Detroit,Chicato,NY & inner cities pictures should have been shown in all their ugliness. I think Romney did the best he could but it wasn´t nearly as patriotic as it should have been. WWI & WWII should have been presented & reasons America fought for freedom - it was not. We are not in charge & it is becomming very evident. II Chronicles 7:14

#4 I was at that same place last week. Feeling physically ill with the nervous stomach, plus I am recovering from a surgery too. I decided I couldn´t continue that way, so I did the only and best thing I could, and that is to remember that ultimately God is in control.

I believe everything happens for a reason, and we may not know the reason for this mess for awhile. So I have decided to concentrate more on taking care of my own and less on worrying about what´s going on with politics that I unfortunately can´t change.

We have to leave a lot of this in God´s hands, but still do what we can in our local communities.

This advice is completely 180 degrees wrong. If we are going to experience superinflation, and eventual devaluation of the USDollar, you want to owe as much as possible. Like wealthy Mexicans did when the Peso was devalued in the 1980s, the smart ones had debts in Pesos and assets in US Dollars. When the Peso went from 8 to $1 to 90 to a $1, their debts cost them 10cents on the dollar and their assets were 12x more valuable.

Gold would be a good asset, hard assets would be a good keeper of value (for sale at world market prices).

It is only cold comfort that those Obama voters who refused to consider the election choices, who refused to consider the recent history of the US, who refused to consider the core values of what makes America different from Europe....those Obama voters will be of the first to feel the effects of out-of-control inflation and unavailability of goods and services in the US.

He´s right. Once the "gimmies" run out of Obamaphones and other "free stuff" the riots will start. Hope they burn down their own neighborhoods first then the rest of us will have time to arm ourselves.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
