Now it’s serious. Obama and this kakistocracy have squandered untold TRILLIONS on wars against nations that didn’t do anything to us, in the pursuit of global domination. Further, untold TRILLIONS have been printed and given to Wall Street Banksters so that when they bet trillions and lose, there are no penalties for them, these “masters of the universe.”

You do understand that one trillion = 1,000 billion dollars?

Ah, but who will pay the bill?

Austerity is an all out class war on you by the aristocratic ghouls who run Amerika. Heads they win, tails you lose. This is not a representative democracy, but an out of control empire, and the bills are officially due. Consider this the real world price tag for criminal ignorance and immoral apathy:

…here’s a short list of some of the massive, national bi-partisan-created austerity cuts, according to the New York Times:

-600,000 food stamp recipients will be cut from the program

-Massive education cuts. According to President Obama:

“Once these cuts take effect thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off and tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids. ”

-12 billion in Medicare cuts (more to come after 2013)

-Millions receiving unemployment will see their checks cut by 11% (an average of 132 a month)

-Federal funds to state governments will be cut, creating even more deficits for states and municipalities, and thus more localized cuts (the states have already made austerity cuts of $337 billion
!)

Also, 700,000 jobs are expected to be loss
, while 70,000 kids are also expected to be kicked off of Head Start

And this is just for 2013.

According to the White House website
:

-$130 billion in “savings” [cuts] to Social Security, by implementing a “superlative CPI.”

-$35 billion in “savings” [cuts] to the retirement of federal employees.

– $400 billion in health care “savings” [cuts], much of it Medicare cuts.

Obama cynically fails to mention the words Social Security or Medicare in the above plan, choosing instead to write in code (“superlative Consumer Price Index”).
