This article brings home the fact that there are over 50 million households in the United States that are having a time making ends meet enough to keep a roof over their family’s head while the mainstream media ‘feeds’ us bullshit about an already divorced half breed and her dysfunctional trailer trash family marrying into inbred ‘royals’ in England.
When will we get a clue that there is real suffering here in the States instead of pursuing entertainment that is meant as a distraction from what is really going down? With the Trump Administration proposing cuts to social programs left and right, the impact will be felt by America’s children. His entitled brat won’t ever have to worry about heading to his elite private school on an empty stomach, but millions of America’s children do just that!
I understand that Americans are ever ones for distractions, but there must come a time when we take off our rose-colored glasses and take a really good look around at what is happening and realize that all of us are headed in the direction of those who are already there; in deep, unrelenting poverty. How many of us can put together $500 for an emergency? A thousand? Why not? Because millions of Americans are working low wage jobs and with rents skyrocketing, how the hell can anyone save a dime? Millions more will soon be joining the ranks of those who have bottomed out.
And quite frankly, 50 million is not even close to what the true numbers are because the homeless were not included in this estimation, nor were squatters who live in abandoned, derelict buildings, nor were the people who live out of their cars or who live in RVs. Count them and the numbers are even more astounding!
But meanwhile, we’re somewhere looking teary-eyed at Meghan Markle’s stupid meaningless marriage ceremony since she’d already taken vows to love, honor and yada, yada, yada til death do her part with her first husband. If we are not distracted by fake African kingdoms, dumb ass amusement parks like Disney World, we are distracted by what inbred, redundant ‘monarchs’ are doing across the pond. Find some way to get tunnel vision so that you can focus on what will soon be impacting you!
