You have my complete sympathies. This isn’t the stuff we were promised as kids but it’s the reality we were handed. Apologies for the preaching earlier – again, easy for me sitting on this chair.
I thought about politics then I realized I can’t get up on stage without getting the willies, and I’d get eaten alive in the dog-eat-dog political world.
I think though we’re probably going to reach a point where “basic minimum income” might have to be a reality: job creation is happening but it’s all at levels that can’t even support individuals and certainly not families.
Small businesses don’t make the profit margins to support higher wages either. Large businesses are skirting paying taxes and the weight is felt by individuals, heads of households and small business owners instead.
That tax money is going into the pockets of politicians to play with and there’s nothing we can do.
Nothing. Death and taxes (and the wasteful politicians to go with it) will always be with us, whether ancient Rome, today or 1000 years into the future.
You have every right to be fighting mad, Scott.
