USA is doing better economically then ever before, its more likely people don;t want to raise kids in this toxic liberal leaning society
there you go again mouse. what is it with you repugs anyway? we had a zero deficit with bill clinton running the show but you were all hot and bothered about him getting a blowjob as if you cared what he did to his wife hilary. that's right you were mad about that but the orange one is as foul as dog poo and you just love him for the economy that obama set him up to inherit.
Having recently retired from 44 years of hard work, I have to respectfully disagree. I was a hard working and skilled electrician who was taken advantage of by most of the companies I worked for. I could look around and see people making more money and accomplishing much less than myself. They would take my ideas and report them as their own. Many of those individuals were college educated engineers. They made at least twice what I did and did (in most cases) a lot less. Even so, I did well in my last job, thankfully and am able to have a comfortable retirement. One was a shrewd businessman who took advantage of my work ethic. He would give me all the hard jobs knowing that I wouldn't complain and just do my work. My observation is that the producers are robbed by the directors. The people who actually do the work are not compensated properly and hold no power.
In 1970 I bought an IHC Scout 4x4 for 3500 bucks new. In 1992 I bought a Ford short wide pick up for 15,000 new. Allowing for the a/c and larger size it was still 2.5 times the cost of the Scout. The 2006 impala I bought my wife cost 21000. Today they are over 30,000. Guess whose raises don't keep up with this kind of inflation. The problem is that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Our form of government can not survive in this kind of environment. It's sad because this country still has so much potential, but we are being attacked from outside and inside and our leadership quality has been diminished. As a result of lost wages, more and more intelligent young people avoid the trades. Whose going to install and trouble shoot when my generation dies off? An A.I.?
i'm sorry man. that sucks. mouse up there is likely not doing so hot himself since he's always here polishing trump's balls. the economy is good for those with money. not for average guys like us.
