(CNSNews.com) – Americans who were recipients of means-tested government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released this month by the Census Bureau. They also out-numbered the total population of the Philippines.
There were 108,592,000 people in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011 who were recipients of one or more means-tested government benefit programs, the Census Bureau said in data released this week. Meanwhile, according to the Census Bureau, there were 101,716,000 people who worked full-time year round in 2011. That included both private-sector and government workers.
The next sentence is shocking but, in my opinion, not unexpected or unforeseen:
That means there were about 1.07 people getting some form of means-tested government benefit for every 1 person working full-time year round.
I have written, for some time, of the tipping point where the Parasites outnumber the Hosts.
Statistically, it appears, we are there.

(CNSNews.com) – The federal government raked in a record of approximately $2,472,542,000,000 in tax revenues through the first eleven months of fiscal 2013, which ran from Oct. 1, 2012 through the end of August, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement for August.
That is up about $285 billion from the approximately $2,187,527,000,000 in taxes the government took in through August of fiscal 2012.
Despite these record tax revenues, the federal government still accumulated a $755 billion deficit in the first eleven months of fiscal 2013. Totally federal spending through the first eleven months of the fiscal year was $3.228 trillion.
At the end of last year, the president struck a deal with Republicans in Congress at the to enact legislation that increased taxes. This included pushing the top income tax rate from 35 percent to 39.6 percent, increasing the top tax rate on dividends and capital gains from 15 percent to 20 percent, and phasing out personal exemptions and deductions starting at an annual income level of $250,000.
An additional 3.8 percent tax on dividends, interests, capital gains and royalties–that was embedded in the Obamacare law–also took effect this year.
And yet the DebtClock keeps rolling and rolling and rolling.
Again, the Obama Administration — which “promised” to be the most transparent in history — is proving itself the complete opposite: the most OPAQUE in history and the most strident in keeping information from the electorate.
From MotherJones (Of all places!):
In the midst of revelations that the government has conducted extensive top-secret surveillance operations to collect domestic phone records and internet communications, the Justice Department was due to file a court motion Friday in its effort to keep secret an 86-page court opinion that determined that the government had violated the spirit of federal surveillance laws and engaged in unconstitutional spying.
The violations and abrogations of our Constitution and Bill of Rights go on and on and on, one abortion after the other, and still you have to dig and scrape and pry and unearth to discover what’s going on in your very own back yard, your very own country!
Further, the American Media Maggots, like thousands of domestic cats, do their very best to paw the sand over the daily piles of steaming shit created and served up by Mr Obama in DC. They’re happy to do it. Overjoyed.
Then they become packed and bristling with umbrage and scarlet outrage when the obvious is pointed out: their mouths and faces are coated with years of old and cracked DC shit along with the fresh strands of fecal materials dripping from their very teeth.
Never before have I seen an American press so willing to become such abject coprophages for Washington DC. It is beyond disgusting. And never have I been so disillusioned by the American electorate for installing this pseudo-black American Destroyer not once, but twice — mostly because they want more Free Cheese.
This is detestable. Beyond shameless. I lack further abominable words at this point.
I say — and this administration proves me correct — that if you thought the political damage stemming from Washington is bad, just wait another week.
It gets worse.
Keep pushing, Mr Obama. I don’t think America will like what’s just over the horizon.
Gird thy loins, America. Be prepared.
