The Dead Zone: Where America’s Greatest Talents Go To Die

The Dead Zone: Where America’s Greatest Talents Go To Die | unemployed-mbasmall | Economy & Business

By: Brooks Agnew |

The Obama administration is publishing nothing more than propaganda praising its own mythical success at creating jobs. If you have a job, you better kiss your employer’s ring every day. We are told by our government that unemployment is at a pleasant 5.1%, plus or minus a fraction or so. Anyone who ventures out during the daylight hours in any city or town in America knows this statistic is completely fabricated. It is a flat out lie. The real number averages 16.5% unemployment, which is a far more impactful portion than in our nation’s history, because this fraction affects rural and urban employment zones. It is also far worse than any administration since Herbert Hoover.

During the Great Depression of 1929, around one in five working age adults was out of work, but this was concentrated mostly in the major cities. Remember, in most cities of the 1920’s children were commonly employed at greatly depressed wages to work in sweat shops so gruesome, that most adults could not survive. Small towns usually had farms, refineries or mines that kept on providing jobs all through the depression. It’s called a depression, because prices and wages fall to incredible lows due to the collapse of the money supply by the central banks.

In modern times, banks utilize a fiat money system that can print billions of dollars every day out of little ones and zeroes. These counterfeited funds are injected into the bond market, shoring up the dollar and keeping stock prices from falling. The fake money is so cheap to borrow, that corporations take out loans to buy back their own shares in a fatal reverse mortgage game that allows executives to cash out without hurting their share price. This practice allows the insiders to escape and robs the consumer of buying power while the donor class walks away with all the money, leaving shareholders an empty bag of liabilities.

With the final repeal of the Glass-Steagle legislation and the passage of NAFTA by Bill Clinton in 1993, conditions for the perfect storm were set in motion. It allowed banks unfettered abilities to enter the securities industry using depositors’ money with which to gamble. With the collapse of Lehman Brothers and mortgage-backed securities, the entire world was sucked into a financial black hole within 15 years saddling the world’s top banks with more than $770 trillion in derivatives. As if matters could not be made worse, small businesses were also choked to death. The passage of Dodd-Frank made it illegal for banks to loan money to startup businesses. “If you can’t find a job, you can always make a job,” no longer applied as small businesses could never secure the funding to open even the smallest venture. Within a few short years, all venture capital was extracted from every town, every city, and every State to a central location where it is hoarded by the powerful central banks.

Now, you probably already know some of the actual unemployment numbers dealing with new college graduates saddled with billions in student loan debt. You probably already know high school graduates have been shouldered out of the way by illegal immigrants who will work for $2 less on the hour. You may even know that nearly 60% of black youth cannot find a job because they live in city plantations run for decades by Democrat politicians who use them as nothing more than a voter stable.

Well, there is more that you don’t know. Degreed men between 50 and 55 have a 25% unemployment rate, or are working one or two jobs in areas outside their expertise to keep their families fed. If a degree man is between 55 and 59 years old, that number goes up to 30%. But, if that man is between the ages of 59 and 64, that number shoots up to 50%. That age group in America is known as the dead zone.

Men between the ages of 59 and 64 are most likely to have their first major health problem. The unemployed male in the dead zone has no health insurance, which means they are very likely to be first to die due to lack of quality healthcare being made available. The “Self Pay,” adult male will often be made to wait 90 days or more for an appointment for something as basic as blood pressure medication. They are not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare because they are too young. They are deleted from the job market, because they are too old. Obamacare costs employers too much for employees over the age of 59. These highly experienced, healthy, degreed professionals have been forced into the dead zone by the Obama Administration.

The dead zone in America encompasses the greatest brain trust this world has ever known. Clean energy technologies, medical breakthroughs, and training expertise are all lost by design. These are the most successful problem solvers in history, but without money, they cannot help us. Without health care, they are likely going to die. They only want to know one thing. When does the revolution begin? When is someone going to step forward and enforce the law?

    “AMERICAS GOT TALENT” ……….but who cares as nobody needs it.
    Just like countless people in the 1929 depression were well talented, able and willing, they’re talents and skills simply weren’t needed nor desired.
    While watching the TV version of Americas Got Talent this week, I couldn’t help but make the metaphoric comparison to this articles subject. Some very talented, highly skilled and truly gifted contestants were discarded in favor of a much lesser talented jokester. Ironically the joker was totally silent, never saying one word, operating in total silence, yet appealing more to the majority of viewer mentality.
    Political America is very much typical of this same exact Hollywood TV scenario. Those who could really benefit America with their useful talents and honest aspirations, are rejected and routinely discarded, by those more attracted to and entertained by Jokers like pet goat George, Obama and Hillary, who operate in silence behind closed doors and secretively, avoiding public scrutiny till after the fact.
    It seems Hollywood has taken up residence in that BIG WHITE HOUSE.

    Great article, with useful information.
    Thanks Brooks Agnew & SJ.

      Obama reached the finest colleges, the Senate, and then the White House because of the color of his skin, and then spent 20% of his presidency and $100 million in taxpayer funds on vacation or golfing. He took advantage of the crooks who make up the insider-trading DC Crime Syndicate. Wait until we learn how much of the $400 million in smuggled Iranian cash he stuffed into his own “foundation.” You ain’t seen nothing yet.

        And to think that somebody once said that “crime doesn’t pay”, but history proves over and over it can make you filthy rich, get you elected and re-elected, and gets you a key to the White House front door.
        I do think it’s long past time to consider repainting the White House a different color as white is highly inappropriate as there are only deceitful political whores within.

        Great comment, Thanks.

    i guess the great part is… those who are marginalizing the 50-65 will find themselves in the same boat soon enough once the robot generation arrives in full force.

    Or the employed or financially secure 59-64 year old gets euthanized under the guise of medical practitioners trying to heal them of an illness.. Practitioners can be taught to kill and not even know they’re doing it. Just listen to all of the complaints about over population. This economy is being used as a weapon so why not the medical industry? Depopulation is depopulation. People should read the UNEP Global Biodiversity Assessment and quit underestimating those elite eugenicists behind that concept.. The IMF financed it.

    Your premise of the unemployed in this age group having no health insurance, so they die first is completely incorrect. If someone were to lose their job and company health insurance, and therefore had no income, they could get insurance through Obamacare and pay little to nothing for if. The people who get screwed are the ones with good jobs who have to pay outrageous premiums to defray insurer’s costs.

    • visionofficer

      That is a loan, not insurance. Any claims made against it must be repaid through estate liquidation, and the debt extends to immediate family; kids, wife, etc. A man could lose his home, retirement, etc.

    Hmmm—White men over 50 have trouble getting jobs. Racism, sexism, and ageism.

    Do not expect the group here to take care of you and do not let them take care of you. Invent things or invest in new innovations. The medical system is a toxic fraud. It has been twenty five years since I was supposed to die from not consuming the cholesterol fraud drugs. I am in this age group and in my first two weeks of kinder garden a Bolshevik styled supervisor lady tried to give me shaken baby syndrome. In today’s America they would first try to give you shaken baby syndrome and then they would get you drugged up with no biological testing. Its not so bad, yer nothing and I am still here you rotten communist pieces of crap.
