The majority of Americans are struggling and suffering

It’s the United States of Poverty. The American dream died when the middle class died. Wages have decreased, there aren’t enough jobs, and the price of basics have increased. This is not our grandparents America. Back then, anyone who was willing to work could live a decent, comfortable life. But not anymore. The America of our grandparents is dead. Homelessness is a huge crisis that the government completely ignores as if it will just go away. The government won’t do anything to help the millions of homeless Americans, but they’ll spend billions of dollars per day on illegal wars like in Syria. Imagine if billions of dollars per day were spent on making sure every American had a home to sleep in. There are people that work full time jobs and are still homeless, sleeping in their cars, because they can’t afford rent. Sad.

US sanctions on Russia will help crash the dollar

It seems like the US Congress and Senate are hell bent on bringing economic disaster to America. Oh they so badly want sanctions on Russia and overwhelmingly passed a sanctions bill despite large corporations lobbying against it. I don’t know if the Congressmen and Senators fully understand what they are doing. If the anti-Russia sanctions are not vetoed by President Trump, then according to various economists, the results will be anywhere from bad to catastrophic for America. That’s right, for America. Russia sanctions won’t be bad for Russia, they will be bad or catastrophic, depending on the predicting economist, for America. It could lead to the American dollar being dumped as the international reserve currency which would bring in the collapse of the dollar. The collapse of the dollar is something many financial gurus are predicting will happen which will be devastating to ordinary Americans. I can’t imagine that the

I’m not celebrating July 4th; We just aren’t free anymore

The 4th of July used to be one of the few holidays that I liked. Because of a not very happy existence from adolescence, I’m not a holiday person. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, to Valentines Day are all hard holidays that I try my best to ignore. The 4th of July however, was different. It was the Brexit of 1776. The best Brexit of all time in which the greatest country on earth was born. We were free from that awful murderous, elitist, nasty British monarchy. Our fonding fathers said hell to the no to monarchy rule and not being free human beings. No king or no queen was going to tell us what to do. We’re not going to stand at the foot of some castle and wave to people that think they are above everyone else just because they were born into a certain family. F no. We

Illinois is done

The state of Illinois is over with. It’s done. Kaput. Put a fork in it. It’s bankrupt. It can’t pay it’s employees. It hasn’t been paying medicaid providers. A court ruling ordered that the state pay the medicaid providers it hasn’t been paying. The only problem is, Illinois can’t pay. It’s a junk state now. It is $15 BILLION in debt while shelters for domestic violence and the homeless have closed. It suspended the lottery, because it can’t pay out lottery winnings. Pensions will likely be cut . People who rely or were planning on relying on pensions or state checks need a plan B, because you will likely be getting pennies on the dollar unless one of the failed mathematically incompetent leaders comes up with a plan to save the pensions. Yo, Obama, can you save your state? It’s been run into the ground and all analysts are saying
