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.

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.  

 

 

Care to answer the original question?

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.
