Then Captain Capitalism same to the same conclusion.
This is one of the main reasons - and there are others - why I say both parties have been crapping all over this country for 40 years.
When I was in high school those who graduated could go straight to the steel mill. The starting pay was about $25,000 a year and if they stayed there they could make about $70,000 a year. With a high school diploma. These days, the mill is on the verge of being closed, which means my hometown (which has already lost 20% of its population since I graduated) will be devastated.
When I was 11 years old my father rented a two-story farmhouse with a basement with those big stone walls. Know what the rent was?
$65 a month. That was in 1967. And in that year my father bought a brand-new VW bug for $1600.
That's impossible today, because of inflation. And who causes inflation? The federal government.
My last year and a half in college I rented an apartment for $175 a month, drove a school bus and delivered pizzas. I had a used car (with insurance), my own phone, bought all my food and clothes - and still saved money.
Try that today.
And then the sonsofbitches and court-jester economists lie to us and say that exporting high-paying jobs and importing Chinese trinkets is good for the economy. And that importing criminal morons is a good thing, too.
People with IQs of 100 or less (which is half the country) are supposed to "retrain for higher-paying jobs" (which don't exist for them). No wonder there are adults working at fast-food places (it used to be adults were turned down at such places as being "overqualifed").
No wonder Trump is so popular. People have finally wised up to the fact that neither party is going to do anything for them - except piss on them and tell them it's raining lemonade.
