TransportationIn every one of those categories of American life, the federal government has reached in and grabbed power to manipulate, force, co-opt, and tax, probably more that I can’t think of at this moment. Has any of this changed America for the better?
Food / Farming
Banking / Monetary Policy
Land Use / Resources
Media / Communications
Business / Capitalism
Labor / Trade
Travel / TSA
I can’t think of anything that is better as a result, not one thing. Prices continue to escalate. Unemployment is no better, if not worse in a most places. In the town I live in, unemployment is still high. Tax revenues are down. County schools are scrambling to find money. Small businesses have closed, fled, or barely making it. People are on hold. Their choices more limited. Life is less hopeful. There is a pall in the air, an undercurrent of worry and darkness. I hear this and see this in the middle class around me, more than any other time in my life. People are going through the motions. Waiting and watching.
Which was the point after all. But this has been going on for years, long before Barack Obama came to office. However, Obama was intending to destroy the middle class from the very beginning. That is what communists do.
So what is better now, America? Anything? Are blacks any happier? Is anyone?
The communist / fascist / statist left is not happier. All I read and hear is more griping and yelling about how they want more. Never enough for communists. In fact they seem even more angry than before the Obama election, if that is possible.
Other than the favored corporate and banking industries, who is thriving? And are even they happier? It doesn’t seem so. No one seems happy, hopeful, or eager for the future.
