America’s inequality;
“Rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”
Illumination of this can be viewed within our USA. Increasing wealth, disproportional to the impoverished who are unable to maintain an
equitable ratio in gains. Impoverished, at their best, stagnation of their share in laborers productivity. Increasingly eroding of their portions of share to their labors productivity. Increasing to the inequality and accelerating negatively to the impoverished.
Three decades of low wages, to the 90%, with a growth of 15%. Earnings increase to the 1% have been cruising at 150% increases as to the 0.1% are racing at 300% Greater acceleration of wealth accumulation has affected the wealth at the bottom.
Middle class bastion of secured wealth accumulation has been severely oppressed. Homes lost their values. Top 1% lost wealth but it was soon recovered. Middle class years later are just now experiencing a strangulated loss gain to their investments if not a total loss. Typical 1% held 225 times the wealth of the typical middle class household. Doubling the ratio experienced as they were in 1962 and 1983.
Prior to 2007 the 1% enjoyed accumulating 57% of the nations wealth. Producing an increase in capital income after 1979 some 7/8 while those in the 95% received less than 3% of the increment.
Consider for an example; Walton’s family of the Wal-Mart empire commands a wealth of 69.7 Billion. Compare this to the total wealth of the 30% of the entire population, of the impoverished within the USA.
“Good” middle class jobs have been eviscerated that required moderate skills, like autoworkers’ jobs, in ratio to the unskilled laborers. Where in at the top greater skill levels were required.
Polarization of the labor force. Collapse of good jobs has been in affect for the last 25 years. Wages have gone down, increasing disparity of inequality in favor of the 1%. Creating a downward spiral for the middle class laborer.
Presently as an example; Single earner of family of two children, in good health, manages to work 40 hours per week,{Presently Average working hours for Americans is at 34 hours} at a wage above minimum {$8.50/hr} Pays S.S. which reduces his earnings to $8.00. Yearly income is $16,640 for 2080 hr’s of labor.
Pays no income tax but his employer charges him $200 a month for health insurance, to cover entire family and employer picks up remaining $550 cost per month of the cost to health insurance. This results in a take home pay $14,240 a year. Luck on his side, finds an apartment for $700 month with all utilities included. Now this reduces yearly earnings to $5,840 to cover all family cost for the year. Add in a car with fuel, insurance and maintenance at $3,000 per year and what remains is $2840. Under $3.00 per individual per day. No entertainment and no buffer zone for accidents or lost of wages.
Along comes the “Great Recession” Safety nets cut! Miss rent due to loss wages and homelessness looms.
One Example of nets being cut and their affect; Many states cut child care. Average monthly child care for two children $1,433 per month to be subtracted from the $2,840 a month families income. Results in $1.30 per, person per day! Good old Walmart job.

The world is looking at what is going on with this Obama talking about chemical weapons again.
The Internationals tend to feel awe as what would come from US by portraying and labeling others again?
If they are not North Korea, Iran, or Axis-of-evil, who will be those again?
Obama has demonstrated distasteful and bad results everywhere, in views and activation of dramatic incidental situations, from Libya and now to Syria.
Now, Obama's saying to strike Syria based on chemical weapons issue makes the whole world nervous.
Obama looks like another big terror on the planet, to create drama horror in the pursuance of destruction of chemical weapons in Syria, like Iraq horror again.
Obama is exhibiting the Bush molded puppet by doing the same old Bush psycho drama by converting Iraq to Syria of using the same scheme of chemical weapons matter.
The whole world is witnessing another psycho horror Obama at work.
Obama is doing and acting as the Bush clone robot in trying to make another bad drama of the same old thing on chemical weapons about Iraq from the previous psycho Bush, by checking to chemical weapons in pursuit for destroying them in Syria, as If is another Iraq and Bush drama.
But, every US pursuit of chemical weapons has suffered large damages, and only can be viewed as the psycho drama of never-ending chemical weapons kind cycle drum. As of those days, to beat up the drum of striking that said Iraq will strike the world with silos of WMD (but where were any long range Iraq missiles to fire silos first), that US must destroy those Iraq WMD.
That is the terror drama going on and on from US, that the whole world is seeing again.
Yet, this is another psycho drum of drama on chemical weapons again.
But, Middle East had not been proven in the usage of chemical weapons by killing a lot of people.
US bombs and missiles had killed at least few hundreds of thousands people instead in the ME region, in the pursuance of chemical weapons issue, while ending up finding none of WMD in Iraq.
US gets many big damages today (including getting a bad name) in the checking and pursuit of attempting to destroy the WMD in Iraq, as it is doing the same thing to Syria now, like a repeated cycle.
As alike to Iraq case, there will be high doubts that US would end up with any good results about doing the same thing to Syria.
Obama has dug himself a big hole, by his exposition of dramatic psycho terror, by dong Bush drama deal.
Obama could not provide solid proof and prove concretely that ASSAD USED SARIN GAS ON THE 8/21 INCIDENT, as this may be another same Bush drama lie to strike Syria.
US does have a lot of psycho dramas---IT IS troublesome for Obama if he were to use ground troops, when Assad would not let US in to check, that people will be watching the tense drama again, like Iraq case.
Obama's policies are as Bush clone molded polices, as nothing is new but the drama kind of terror again.
Libya also had chemical weapons but hardly used them, yet it said it had destroyed them--the point is that chemical weapons had not been used much and killed much in recent times, but the missiles and bombs had killed lots instead, especially in the matters of chasing chemical weapons.
From what Obama had done so far in every policy, US already suffers damage in Libya in the Obama policy as US embassy was hit while there was another hit to Libya foreign ministry building on another 9/11, just a few days ago. Libya is still impregnated with lots of volatility of terror rebels like those in Syria,that could uprise to explode any time against US as well as the current Libya government.
US policies in the pursuit of chemical weapons ended up nothing good as all horrors and bad dramas, while this same thing again to Syria is trying to do it again by Obama, as if US has never learned by repeatedly doing the same thing, to want to have to take MORE DAMAGES--AND THAT is the way of Obama's in making terror dramas for getting more damages.

Well, outside of the lengthy post, there are many things that I agree with. Kerry and Obama are a couple of drama queens about the whole thing.

They have been trying to sell the Syrian intervention by trying to scare the public into thinking it could happen here which any thinking person highly doubts. It's nice to see that the public is not buying it.

Let both sides in Syria kill each other all they want. They have been doing it since they first learned how to throw rocks at each other many centuries ago.

The U.S. has too many problems that need to be fixed at home to bother with things that are none of our business.

they could have the weapons sent here. chemical weapons are easy to smuggle into a major port than nuclear weapons. you people just better watch out its gonna happen. when it does dont ask for government help we will have to go through diplomacy and and diplomatic solutions for months, while the terrorists are planning another attack or we get attacked waiting on congress to make a decision. do we have to wait on congress all the time maybe congress should get chemical or nuked

Why is Congress getting chemical poisoning or nuked such a bad idea?. They are only here to serve the global elite anyway. Geez, you seem to be such a real drama queen too.

You should not worry about anything. Big Bother (not a typo)is monitoring your phone calls, e-mails, traveling and even purchases
with your credit and debit cards. They have access to your bank account(s) and even your health records. Now that alone should make you feel safe. right?.

It's quite simple really. Leave other countries to their own business. If they want to have a civil war and kill each other, who cares?.

Just one more thing. You're expressing the very same and unfounded concerns that got the U.S. involved in almost a decade of conflict in Iraq.
