Answer me this

Recommended Posts

On a scale of 1-10 how bad do you think America as a whole has become.

1 being no problems at all

5 being good and bad aspects are equal

10 being no hope for a solution to our problems

Right now, I'd say we're at a 6.5, but we're trying to get to the 10 slowly but surely.

You asked how bad do you think America has become. I am saying that its the same as it has always been.

no. not the same in my opinion. I ve been alive for 36 years and I ve definitely noticed a difference. Seems to me especially over the last few years their have been many changes.

 

Do you care to actually answer the question?

Every decade has its same share of problems. None are worse than the other. You only know about more of them because of the constant need for a news story.

you re looking at the BIG things. I'm looking the small things. Take just about any Nicki Minaj's lyrics back 30 years in time and play it for someone. They would be embarrassed.

The big things are all that matter. If you want a number I'd say a 5. Everything is equal.

I'd give it a 7. However, I think it's just a pendulum swing that is in continuous motion. It will swing back the other way eventually.

If you want to look at the little things listen to Louie Louie and check out the old ratings for movies in the 70s and 80s.

I would say 8. My personal opinion is we are about to go into a depression like the one our great grand-parents went through. America is broke. We print more money which will devalue the dollar, and cause inflation. This has cause a money bubble ( a.k.a asset bubble ) This bubble will pop. If you keep inflating the bubble by printing extra 85 billion dollars a month and throw it at the stock market. Our govt has been and still does this. A couple of weeks ago the Federal Reserve said we might start cutting this out gradually, and the market went down 700+ points in three days. If we keep printing money, inflation will pop the Money bubble. If we stop throwing money at the stock market, the bubble will pop. We raise the intrest rates to stop inflation, this will also pop the bubble.

 

Look at how much greed is in our Capitilaism today. The government is printing extra billions and billions of dollars a month, and still the middle classes income is still STAGNANT. This alone will collapse the market.

 

Remember the 1920's in America are know in history as the ROARING 20's. We know what happened in the 1930's. Like I said the govt is throwing 85 billion into the stock market every month. The market better go up .

 

The American people already are seeing inflation. If you have been to the supermarket lately, to the gas pump, or simply opened up your utility bills.

 

As soon as somebody says. " SHOW ME THE MONEY" the market collapses. The government and the American people are broke.

Yep all of the vulgarity back then was from Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor.

 

9 - but not because of vulgarity or song lyrics.

 

But because our (we the people) karma is about to run over their (gov't) dogma.

8.5 Started to say 7.5 then remembered that for myself even local America is becoming worse. I see some signs of life but unless we become self dependent as America, Americans and individuals we are sunk. imo

I see us at about an 8.5 to a 9.0, although I pray it's just a swing that will sway back toward the middle, eventually, for my kids' and grandkids' sake. If it doesn't swing back toward the right quickly this country will implode, and freedom and democracy will become a thing of the past. I don't think that time frame is very big, either, and for somebody to say this country hasn't changed dramatically in the last decade is turning a blind eye to the truth.
