Exactly!! When he was campaigning I heard a lot about how he was going to support small business development. Want to know how my small business has developed? I have cut my labor force by almost half( from 18, down to 10) have sold one of my trucks, my service van, and some of my equipment. Now rather then spending my time expanding my business, I have to scramble to keep the 2 crews I have left busy. If something doesn't "change" and damn soon I'll be out of business all together. I dunno about anyone else's idea of development is but this isn't what I had in mind.
I was really hoping for an F.D.R. type turn around. We need a new deal, have any of you taken a close look at our infrastructure? I just don't understand why we are pumping billions into foreign countries and bailing out failed businesses when our country is crumbling before our eyes.
It's the same shit, the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and now our middle class has been sold to foreign countries all in the name of corporate bottom lines. See ya all in the welfare line lol
An interesting thing to note, something that's especially relevant to me, is that students are now taking on huge amounts of debt in order to put themselves through college, because middle/working-class families no longer have any money to support them.
The scary reality is that all these students who are going to be future leaders and innovators, are going to be financial slaves to the rich because of their debt (credit lenders). This gives the rich even more power and influence over the educated populous.
So far I've put myself through 2 years of college without racking any debt thanks to scholarships and work money. My funding magically got cut in over half however for next year, so I'm going to have to work my ass off, which is something I don't like doing because I already spend most of my time studying (3.75 GPA currently).
I originally was not going to go to college if it meant racking up debt, as I just do not believe in the abuse of credit except for emergencies, (it fucks you over in the long-run, as Americans have found out) Depending on how things go, I might have to postpone a semester or two just to save up money to attend.
At this point we really do need something revolutionary, but the problem is that with the way our political system works now, those who have been bribed can gang up and shoot-down down anything that stands in their way. In a sense, the democratic process is working against us because the majority are all corrupt
