US Federal debt increases by U.S Presidents:
Bush I 54%
Bush II 72%
Source: Congressional Budget Office
Republican debt increases ARE unsustainable. Better get about cutting the entitlements for which they are responsible -- e.g. phony credits for oil drilling, phony credits for corn ethanol, phony price increases for medicare prescriptions (i.e. requiring medicare to pay "market" prices for prescription drugs), reduced holding times for capital gains treatment on stocks & bonds, ad nauseum ~ Roy Conant

East Coasters: if you are evacuating TAKE YOUR PETS. Federal law says human shelters must have accommodation in place for household pets (one good thing to come out of Katrina). They may go into a kennel, but it is better than leaving them alone in the house or risking your life staying. Bring shot records, collar & tag, carrier, food, medicine and emergency contact info. Take a picture of YOU with pets (can keep it on Facebook) so you can prove ownership if need be. Good Luck.
Bloggers, and Facebookers, please repost this message. Thanks.

The following information comes directly from www.politicususa.com and it's very important to know:
Let’s start with President Carter.
On December 31st 1976 (Not Carter’s term yet), total nonmilitary personnel was 2,883,000. By December 31st 1980 the end of his term (minus a month), the total in nonmilitary personnel was 2,875,000.
Federal government nonmilitary employees shrunk by 8,000 employees under Carter.
On January 21st, 1981, President Reagan started with 2,875,000 nonmilitary federal employees.
By the end of Reagan’s terms the total number of nonmilitary federal employees was 3,113,000. That is an INCREASE of 238,000
Let’s move on to President George H.W. Bush.
On January 20th, 1989, total federal nonmilitary employment was 3,113,000
by the end of his only term, President George H.W. Bush had 3,083,000 federal nonmilitary employees on the books. That is a REDUCTION of 30,000 employees.
President Bill Clinton came into office with 3,083,000 and by the END of his TWO TERMS he reduced the number of Federal employees to 2,703,000. That is a reduction of 380,000 federal employees.
Now finally, President George W. Bush came into office with 2,703,000 nonmilitary employees and by the time his terms were through, the total nonmilitary federal employees on the books were 2,756,000, which is an INCREASE of 53,000 employees.
The small government, lean and mean political party, seems to be the Democratic Party. President Clinton reduced the size of the federal government’s nonmilitary employees by OVER 10%.
The “so called” small government President Reagan INCREASED the nonmilitary size of government by almost 10%.
In fact, Democratic president Bill Clinton reduced the size of the federal government employee size to PRE- REAGAN levels.
Clinton left office with 2,703,000 and Reagan started his term in 1981 with 2,875,000
The Reagan conservatives, in fact the entire GOP TODAY are trying to frame President Obama as a big government liberal but again, the numbers don’t lie.
By the end of 2010, the United States STILL has less employees on the books than we did back in 1980 even though the population has grown from 226,545,805 to approximately 330,000,000 in 2010.
TOTAL NONMILITARY EMPLOYEES IN 1980 — 2,875,000
TOTAL NONMILITARY EMPLOYEES IN 2010 — 2,840,000
We have 35,000 less nonmilitary employees under President Obama than we had 30 years ago.
So it comes to mind that those who claim to be Reagan small government conservatives and blame Democrats for growing government are either lying to the American people or are themselves willfully ignorant.

Shaycarl is a famous youtuber, so is KassemG, so are many other people. But the most famous of youtubers have one thing in common, a background in the entertainment industry. (they also have great personalities) All of which indicates that my channel will never be famous and willnever earn me a livable income.

Not feelin' it today. I woke up with a headache, the kind that comes from having a serious bout of sleep apnea during the night. It also affects my sinuses and gives me a nauseous/stomach achy feeling. On top of that my wifi wasn't working this morning. Well, it's not really "my" wifi but it is the wifi I use. It comes from a nearby business. To get online I have been at a fast food restaurant for a few hours today. I'll be going home soon. Fingers crossed that the wifi is back up when I get there. My headache is starting to subside, at least there is that.

How a person becomes homeless is a different subject of discussion than "why" a person becomes homeless. And it is discovering the "why" that leads to curing people of homelessness.

Social Anxiety has a lot to do with communication and the problems people have with expressing themselves. Typing is another form of communication. And it seems to me that the way to improve one's typing skills would be the same with improving verbal communication too.

Some drunk was on the property, he had fallen and hit his head on the ground so hard that part of his brain was exposed. An ambulance was called and they took him away to the hospital just moments ago. Do you know how he got so drunk? It's because people gave him money while he panhandled. DO NOT GIVE MONEY TO PANHANDLERS !!!

You know, I'm not really all that serious of a person - not all the time, anyway. Give this a try. It's fun for a couple minutes, and will easily impress small children and old people. Don't mind the vitiligo (a skin condition I have on my hands).

Homeless Plunges are great for teaching people about certain aspects of homelessness, they also help to promote empathy for the homeless, making people more inclined to get involved in helping the homeless to find a way off the streets.

Homelessness is nothing to play around with, the dangers are greater than you realize.
I just met these nice folks at the Burger King down the street. (Yay, BK now has wifi!)
This is the first in a potential series of videos I'll make for my youtube account - I'll call it something like "Random Homelessness Survival Tips". This video includes some basic information about how to get something to eat. If there is something you'd like me to make a video about, concerning homelessness, leave a message in the comment section. thanks.

Is being a homeless advocate really the best thing for me? Do I really want to defend every homeless person for everything they do? I don't think so. Mostly, when I've been advocating for the homeless, what I was really doing was advocating for myself. Instead, I think I'll call myself a homelessness educator.
