Good Day World!
Americans are pissed off.
Their not just a little bit mad about the direction the country is going…oh no...they’re furious!
According to a recent NBC/WSJ Poll, the difference between the “Haves” and “Have Nots” has become untenable.
There's a stark divide by income: 69 percent of Americans making $75,000 or more per year say they're confident and optimistic about their financial situation, compared with just 30 percent of those making less than $30,000.
No surprise then, that 62 percent of the respondents in the poll believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.
A plurality of adults feel angry because the American political system seems to be working for those with money and power.
There’s no doubt in my mind our political system is corrupt and owned by corporate America. So what else is behind the feeling that our country is sinking into a quagmire?
If you’re a Republican here’s the issues your fighting over:
"Stop Abortion"; "Enforce Immigration Laws"; "Defund Planned Parenthood"; and "Impeach Obama."
If you’re a Democrat here’s your issues:
"Fund Planned Parenthood"; "Equality/Human Rights"; "All Lives Matter"; "Get Big Money Out of Politics"; "Black Lives Matter."
Time for me to walk on down the road…
