USA, USA, USA!!! Everything is getting awesomer under our great Leader!

This parallels the recent news that US life expectancy FELL for the 2nd year in a row in 2016 (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db293.pdf). If this isn’t a wakeup call I don’t know what is. It’s despicable that our glorious leaders in Washington are doing everything they can to make a bad situation even worse.

As I see it, it’s the uber-wealthy in the US who’ve torn up the social contract and are using it for toilet paper. No need to have any loyalty to the US – just run it into the ground, and when it’s used up, move to Europe or elsewhere that still has a viable society.

Don’t even have to read past:

We all know our plutocracy cares so much more about the survival of the NRA and perpetual wars achieved by the MIC, than they do about our children.

Well, at least “we think the price is worth it”. Credit to Madeleine Albright for the phrase.

Sarcasm alert for those not familiar with my comments, mostly on other sites, most under my real name.

Does anyone here think that this statistic will prevent 95% of the voting electorate from supporting the two parties of the Duopoly in the next election?

Healthcare for children is secondary to voting for crooks and theives and murderers.

It’s actually “us” that they’re using for toilet paper.

And the government just enforced work requirements for Medicaid. Because full-time, secure jobs are so easy to come by these days.
