Update on America!

Everyone is asked to support our efforts to maintain and expand America's private sector industries and local businesses that create jobs for American workers. This week America marked the 50th Anniversary of the "War on Poverty" a program sponsored by the United States Government. I ask that you consider the statistics outlined in today's commentary and consider our efforts to create jobs and prosperity in America. The figures are from the United States Census Bureau and are listed on the United States Debt Clock which is posted on the front page of

The following numbers are for mid-January 2014.

There are over 317 million people living in America.
144 million Americans have full or part time jobs.
92 million Americans are not in the workforce. Of the 92 million, 47 million people are retired, 45 million people are working age and available for full or part time jobs.
More people retire every day than people enter the workforce.
14 million Americans are on disability.
The United States Census reports that more than 47 million Americans, working, retired or children that are living in poverty - which is below the federal income poverty guidelines.
In order to pay off America's $17 trillion dollar national debt, every man, woman and child would have to give the federal government $54,000 right now.

I know that a report like this is hard to believe and understand. However, from time to time it is good to take a look at what is happening in the U.S.A. and consider how much better life in America would be if our industries were restored and the tens-of millions of working-age Americans could be working and able to support themselves. Thanks for supporting our efforts to keep Americans employed. Kindly spread the word. Your participation is VERY IMPORTANT!
