But, our Country is falling apart now much more so then it was back in the 1970s. Income inequality is the most severe it’s ever been. More than the Gilded Age. There are so many things going wrong today and no one in our government is even remotely seriously trying to fix any of it.
There are some 95 million people unemployed in our country today. Some are retirees, some are students. But the vast majority, according to the Wall Street Journal are eligible for work and looking for a job. That is a catastrophe.
Our unemployment rate is completely inaccurate. No one is lying or cooking the books, the government just has no way of knowing who is ‘actively looking’ for a job or someone who has given up. The unemployment rate went way down this month. Why? Because over 800,000 people in April were so discouraged they stopped looking for work. That 800K figure wipes out all of the new jobs created for the entire year. Why is this not taken seriously? The consequences of this will have dire longterm effects on our country and we shouldn’t be surprised when the government is overwhelmed by people needing money for food.
What’s even more disturbing is the Supreme Court. Are they American citizens? Do they have the best interests of the American people on their minds? It’s seriously hard to tell.
They approved of prayer in government meetings. Prayer that is almost completely Christian. Is our country not based on the separation of church and state? This decision is completely unacceptable. If you want to pray, go to church, synagogue or mosque not at a government meeting. This ruling take the U.S.A. one step closer to becoming a larger Iran.
Citizens United? Why don’t we just say it? The rich can buy elections and control the country. We don’t live in a democracy, we live in an Oligarchy. This is NOT what our Founding Fathers wanted for this country. I think if they were alive now they would be appalled at what goes on in this so called democracy.
