USA, The Brokenest Country

Totham8147Old joke:
Someone with one foot in a bucket of ice and the other foot in a fire feels fine statistically.

New joke:
The USA is a wealthy country.
It has a diamond ring the size of a walnut on its pinky finger but has no legs so it must be doing quite well statistically.

Present reality:
The USA is a warped and ugly social disaster where 1% of 1% of 1% of the people have diamonds the size of walnuts on every finger and one the size of an AA battery hanging from each ear while 25% of the people have nothing.

I wont bore you with additional statistics, but the next time you hear about the great wealth of the USA you might want to blink twice before you get hit with the sparkle from a diamond and the stink of abject poverty.

In the mean time, you should read Peter Van Buren’s article Nickel and Dimed in 2016 “You Can’t Earn a Living on the Minimum Wage”
