IT’S SO SIMPLE IT WILL MAKE YOU CRY!

When you suddenly wake up and scram into the night “IT AIN’T MY FAULT” and you would be absolutely right.  I have attempted many times before on my blogs that your desperate straights were brought on my forces you had no way to control.   No matter how many charts I throw up  , how complex my argument , it boils down to one simple fact.

THE SIZE OF OUR ECONOMY HAS DOUBLED IN THE LAST 30 YEARS.  WHILE OUR MEDIAN PAY HAS REMAINED  THE SAME.

Our median income today is around 46K and if wages had kept up with growth it would be 90K.   Of course had that actually happened the desperate straights we are supposedly in would not exist.

So where did all the money go?    It was made the growth  graph says it was but the middle didn’t get any of it.. It didn’t disappear so?  Of course it went to the top 1% .  Who already had all they could use, but they wanted more and got it.

Driving the common man  to desperate straights..  They sold us all the bullshit that pushed us into trouble.. They through crooked banking escalated  housing prices  to unseen and unmaintainable heights.. Then encouraged the masses to spend the increase in their house on things.. It was fun I guess to run out an buy that Mercedes or big boat or perhaps a second house… and then Kaboom the shit hit the fan.. This disease had spread world wide and crashed all together… It ain’t over yet.. Smaller games are played on the sidelines building little bubbles here and there driving up prices of stuff we need every day,  gas, food, clothes etc.

Now there theme song is WE HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS”  The means they built for us will not support a growing family , they won’t even support old folks on limited income… There is absolutely no way a family can logically think about  a decent education for their kids, they are lucky if they can feed and house them and get them some kind of medical care..

Retirement isn’t a word in their working vocabulary.  A view of life in the future probably looks like more of the same.. Maybe they can get use to it but not many of us can remember times like those that existed in the Great Depression.. It won’t be fun.

But we pulled out of the GD eventually by a combination of progressive programs and a big war.. We will come out of this one , the method is yet to be determined .  The power has to be yanked from the hands of the rich and corporations  and returned to people who are for the people.. I have told you how to do this before. Not real well received by all, but it is the only way I can see to bring them down..
