Disposable Americans: The Numbers are Growing

By Paul Buchheit

May 23, 2016 "Information Clearing House" 

As often noted in the passionate writings of Henry Giroux, poor Americans are becoming increasingly 'disposable' in our winner-take-all society. After 35 years of wealth distribution to the super-rich, inequality has forced much of the middle class towards the bottom, to near-poverty levels, and to a state of helplessness in which they find themselves being blamed for their own misfortunes.

The evidence keeps accumulating: income and wealth -- and health -- are declining for middle-class America. As wealth at the top grows, the super-rich feel they have little need for the rest of society.

As long as they can keep printing money they would be very foolish to not be able to gain more money, if they run low they can just order more, like a pizza, just with a more secure delivery person.

Just read the article, at least now I know I'm not alone living in squalor,  50% of the population appears to be in the same situtation as me. I truly see no way to work our way out of this, if they see us making more they will just take more. I read recently that the top 1% own 99% of the world's wealth. WTH???
