[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] i've lived allover the US. between my wife and I we've had 20 employers besides Ourslves (both of us have owned and operated businesses together and apart)this guys statements are dead on. something is missing. Our govt is broken at the political and the Bureaucratic levels. Seattle will actually GROW FASTER due to this new law. People will continue to leave chitholes to get better chances at making it. I have watched a state live in total denial about what it's actual problems are for a whole decade now, and not by choice. I just happened to be here in MS when our economy crashed. People have been leaving this area for three decades (25% decline in actual population)and the leaders of my local communities are lying to themsleves about why this is happening.. [i]What’s happening is both easy enough for a traveler to see and for an economist to measure. Median household income in 2012 was no higher than it had been a quarter-century earlier. Meanwhile, expenses had outpaced inflation. U.S. Census Bureau figures show that the income gap between rich and poor had widened to a more than four-decade record since the 1970s. The 46.2 million people in poverty remained the highest number since the Census Bureau began collecting that data 53 years ago. The gap between how much total wealth America's 1% of earners control and what the rest of us have is even wider than even in the years preceding the Great Depression of 1929. Argue over numbers, debate which statistics are most accurate, or just drive around America: the trend lines and broad patterns, the shadows of our world of regime change, are sharply, sadly clear. After John Steinbeck wrote The Grapes of Wrath, he said he was filled with “certain angers at people who were doing injustices to other people." I, too, felt anger, though it’s an emotion that I’m unsure how to turn against the problems we face.[/i] http://www.commondreams.org/view/2014/05/02 © 2014 Peter van Buren [/QB][/QUOTE]
