Inequality Grows, From New York to All of America.

For baseball games, Yankee Stadium seats 50,287. If all the homeless people who now live in New York City used the stadium for a gathering, several thousand of them would have to stand. More people in the city lack homes than at any time since . . . It’s hard to say exactly.

Warren Buffet appeared on Bloomberg stating, “That the wealthy income has grown under this Congress and the gap between the rich and poor is widening”.  America doesn’t have a duty to produce jobs but it is their responsibility to take care of it’s citizens making everything fair from taxes we pay to our rights that is being taken away so we are not taken advantage of.   So my question to you is what do we do about homelessness in our country?  Congress is not helping, The wealthy is not helping, and Government programs for the homeless and less fortunate are being eliminated.

In God we Trust is what is written America on the dollar but if we all Trusted in GOD we would abide by his word to help our own not hoard riches for ourselves even in the bible days Jesus dealt with the same situations that is going on today being the rich want to hoard their money while keeping the ones who don’t have money without money.  What will happen when hospitals start closing down? Warning is given but people don’t listen until some real unfortunate situation happens to  them.  Are they ready for the war within this country.  Do they know who will back this war?  Probably different countries that don’t get along well with America.  While inequality grows war grows and grows and grows. What can be done to change this sick way of thinking?  Morals!!!! If every person would ask themselves if I looked at you and saw myself how different would the world be?

Wicked Games…… Welcome to Our Third World Country.

 

Happy Shutdown Week!!!!!!

While the government plays power games with our livelihood we sit and wait to see if they will make the best decisions for our lives.  What will happen if they don’t or what will happen if they never come to a decision how will it affect us???  First we took banks being bailed out and our taxes raised now a government shutdown and on top of that, People’s social security will be affected.  More people will lose their homes and their minds, What the goverment has done is set us up for failure.

Careers have been delayed. Indeed, jobs of any kind have been tough to find, potentially costing millennials hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost lifetime earnings.

The past five years rearranged their American dream.

Postponed and canceled home purchases will likely make it harder for millennials to build wealth, while significant retirement saving is out of reach. Unprecedented student debt hangs over recent graduates. Credit scores have dropped, and loans are harder to get.

Their Is a saying, If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, But if it’s broke let’s change it.

 

 

How profits help drive the war on Drugs.

In the decades since President Richard Nixon declared drug abuse “public enemy number one in the United States,” the nation has spent more than atrillion dollars on the “war on drugs” and arrested 37 millionpeople for nonviolent drug offenses.

Yet the rate of drug use among high school students is almost identical to what it was 40 years ago, and according to the latest report from the Centers for Disease Control, drug overdose rates are up.

So why pour money into a failed system? One factor might just be profit. During the Reagan administration, the government started incentivizing drug arrests by handing out grants to police departments fighting drug crimes. An arrest in a state like Wisconsin could bank a city or county an extra $153.

In 34 years in the Seattle Police Department, Norm Stamper learned about those incentives first hand, and he believes they are “corrupting the system.”

“What we have seen with this drug war are insane numbers of Americans being arrested for nonviolent, very low level drug offenses, in the tens of millions of numbers, and what do we have to show for it?” he asked on Tuesday’s PoliticsNation.  He said drugs are more readily available than when Nixon “first declared war against them.”

“Make no mistake, he was really declaring war against his fellow Americans. He was declaring war particularly against young people, poor people, and people of color.”

Stamper takes issue with the prison industry, which has seen major growth due to low level drug offenders, compared to relatively little growth from more violent offenders.

“The prison industrial complex, the law enforcement, drug enforcement industry, the cartels themselves, heavy street traffickers, are deeply invested in the status quo,” Stamper said. “They are very much invested in making sure, by protecting and expanding their drug markets, often times through violent means, that they will continue to reap the enormous, untaxed, obscene profits associated with illicit commerce.”
