I thought America was the greatest country in the world? Guess not. Why did I post this? I live about an hour from this city, I donate and do charity work in this city, But Ive never seen anything this bad. Hits close to home, I need to increase my donations and go over there and get some work done. That is America, for the super rich, and even the somewhat rich like myself, things seem to be great! But for the middle class, working class, and the poor working class, this is the future. I think its sick, and America needs to stop thinking its such a great place. Because fore lots of people, its not. For the super rich? Great? For the Semi rich like me? Sure, great. Upper middle class? Great. The Middle class is being destroyed, and the working poor are ending up like these people. IN the richest country in the world, this is beyond sick. And this is why I put so much money and time into charity work, not just because I grew up poor. But hey Murica! The banksters and military contractors need paid! Am I the only one who finds this disgusting?
