    Why is everything that isn't total shit expensive as fuck? You either live in a good area that is expensive as fuck, or you live in a shitty ass area...there's no so much in between anymore. The in between is a somewhat expensive place that's a block or two away from a shitty ass area.

    They try to "gentrify" neighborhoods but it's just making the rich richer and the poor poorer. They are basically forcing people that can't fit into that upper class into the very poorest.

    America = Fail...someone please fix it

    Let's see... America went wrong from the beginning because it was founded with a secret destiny written about by the Masonic founders of this country. But really, in 1913, when the Federal Reserve was created, is when we gave the bankers full reign over this country, allowing them to print money out of nothing to buy up all the politicians who are nothing more than figureheads for the people really calling the shots. Now there is nobody working for the people, and most people are clueless or preoccupied with sports and celebrity so everything is allowed to just happen because most people have been domesticated like farm animals and are already in their pens where their masters want them, chewing the cud and getting fatter and dumber by the minute.

    Frankly, I couldn't care less about a piece of real estate separated by imaginary lines on a map. It's more disheartening to see where humanity as a whole is headed.
  8. I understand your way of thinking, but why don't you make your own destiny then instead of complaining and comforming to their ways?

    I think when so much manufacturing went to foreign countries that was part of the problem.
    There used to be lots of factories that gave average people jobs. This apartment building was once a clothing factory, long ago.

    Most of out clothing now is NOT made in America. Even the official NFL jersey's and stuff, which could be considered pretty American are made in places like Guatamala.

    It makes sense to me, if we are going to be consumers, the money we pay for products should go back into out economy, and be available as wages.

    I won't even say too much about the oil situation, they are raping us, they know they can make the price high as shit because we're so dependant on it.

    How can you complain about high prices and in the same breath complain about using cheap labour for production?

    I was referring to the high price of oil, I didn't really say anything about the prices of goods such as clothing.

    Yeah, it's always been bad, you've just been told differently forever.

    I wouldn't say it's even getting worse, just getting better at being bad.
