How to forward GOOD, FACTUAL Email … no Fake News

This Sunday morning, the first of October, a friend forwarded the following email:

BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW THIS?

 Core Competency
These numbers help explain why these last eight years were disastrous for the USA. I read the last item and then look at Trump’s Cabinet. No wonder Washington, DC is in a turmoil. Trump’s picks are bosses who expect their employees to work. These are Eye Opening Numbers. This is what bothers a lot of people about Trump. He won’t accept a can’t do attitude, or inexperienced, incompetent performance. He will get results; it just might not be smooth or pretty.
Here are some amazing stats: Make sure you read to the bottom. An eye opener!

1. These 10 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed!

California
New Mexico
Mississippi
Alabama
Illinois
Kentucky
Ohio
New York
Maine, and
South Carolina

  1. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.
    What’s the problem with that much support?  Well the average household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.
    To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40-hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

    3. Check the last set of statistics!!
    The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is: A real-life business not a government job.
    Here are the percentages:

38% T. Roosevelt
40% Taft
52% Wilson
49% Harding
48% Coolidge
42% Hoover
50% F. D. Roosevelt
50% Truman
57% Eisenhower
30% Kennedy
47% Johnson
53% Nixon
42% Ford
32% Carter
56% Reagan
51% GH Bush
39% Clinton
55% GW Bush
8% Obama
90% Trump
This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of the last administration: ONLY 8% of them have ever worked in private business!
That’s right! Only eight percent – the least, by far of the last 19 presidents! And these people tried to tell our corporations how to run their businesses?
How could Obama, president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?
Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”

Probably a good idea to pass this on, because we’ll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media, or from the alphabet networks.

===============================

(My comments)

That’s enough to make you mad! And… it is easy to want to pass it on.

(but is it true?)

I’ve been emotionally upset in the past when some ‘New information’ appeared on my computer screen.

I got suckered in and passed the information… only to find out it was FAKE NEWS…. (used to be called a Rumor).

Now, I check everything before I forward it.

The above information is factual. Here are just a partial list of resource information….

    Thank you for your comment. Many folks are starting to ‘wake up’… however, we have at least 2 generations of people who have been ‘traditionally educated’… and millions more that continue to wallow in our totally broken education system.

    I’ve relatives and friends who are teachers, their hands are tied. (I’d never last in such an institution)
