Very gloomy but seems like reality wherever it is you are living. This is all thanks to 40 years of corporate interests taking over the political process. Beginning with Reagan and just spiraling out of control with each following Republican government; cleaned up a bit by Dems, Americans start feeling good again and vote back in the Repubs; all the while the NRA telling us to gun up because "they" are coming. Well, "they" are here now and the enemy isn't Mexicans or Blacks or Arabs, it's the next door neighbor. Take care of our children.
