Is this country really much worse off than it was 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 years ago?

    Or do we only live in the moment and pretend things worse today than they were yesterday?

    I think because the middle class keeps shrinking that it is worse off. As Americans do we always search for "what is wrong" and because as humans we are worriers, we only see the bad and not the good?

    What is better about this country from 20 years ago and what is worse?

    If I knew there was going to be a quiz I wouldn't have clicked.

    Once he makes this expression there is only one possible outcome, a quiz is not necessary. [​IMG]

    The rich are getting super rich and everyone else is getting poorer. I would say yes.

    Lever's power grows every day, he's been living in abject poverty on purpose to build up a tolerance for when the U.S. economy fully implodes and he can launch his attack.

    Do we as American citizens try to stop the money grab by Wall Street or are we just laying down? It seems like political action committees who control our government only work for the super rich. Why do we keep laying down for them and taking it? Our infrastructure (roads, bridges, hospitals, trains, health services and public schools) sucks in comparison to western eurpoean nations who we as tax payers have saved from having to arm themselves militarily for 70 years. Why do we as Americans keep spending almost half of our tax dollars on military defense when western europe and japan and korea spends just a fraction as much on their own military?

    Yes. Just think about renting a house or apt in the NY area or Los Angeles. Most service jobs slave wagers. Ability to be tracked 24/7 by the credit bureaus. Loss of freedoms. Millions and millions of illegals. The answer is fuck yeah.

    Then why the fuck are the lower classes taking it? I don't advocate revoultion or riots, but why are the have nots (90% of the population) taking this shit? At one point do the wall street raiders and money men figure out that they cant continue their rape of this country and not be afraid? Rome fell for much less abuse of the middle and lower class than we are currently living through today.

    I could give you some census/crime data to prove that the country is worse, but I don't want to be labeled as a racist. Actually I don't care about the label, I just don't feel like doing it.

    i'm talking about the loss of the American Dream and you go to black crime. that seems to be the fall back easy answer when the truth of our failing as the leader of the free world is too difficult to comprehend. why do people in this country always focus on black crime when our society's failure has nothing to do with black on white or black on black crime? blacks are such an easy scapegoat in this country. pick up a fucking book, would you?

    yeah, cuz there were no jewish gangbangers. 60% of all crimes in turn of the century new york were committed by jews. easy to blame the blacks and latinos since you are not one of them. if jews were as poor as blacks and latinos in new york today, they would still be committing most of the crimes (they still do commit most of the white collar crimes).

    feral? i worked with all races for many years and if i had to pick a race i thought were the friendliest and complained the least, it would be blacks. i lived in a 50/50 white-black neighborhood for many years and i was never once accosted by a black. i think you must just live in fear like a pussy and are afaraid of your own shadow, so you decided that blacks are your enemy, pussy-boy.
