    The richest country in human history refuses to create shelters for its most vulnerable, its mentally ill and unemployed and forces them to live in squalor on the streets of America and who are subjected to all types of harassment, arrest of are bussed out of town.

    The reason for the increasing homelessness in America is the economic system called Capitalism which refuses to build affordable housing and homeless shelters and has turned our Republic into a war criminal, warmongering, weapons dealing, lawless, greedy, corrupt Oligarchy and is also responsible for the destruction of our planet.

    Yes Connie, now Russia is expanding their "missiles" and "nuclear" capability; I bet the US will follow with an "arms race".

    Thus forget the "little" man as well the "needy". Yes this country has indeed become an Oligarchy of the "rich". They run the show; corrupt to the bone and no one "blinks"

    It is a terrible shame that the USA has so many and rich resources that access is obstructed or diverted. Prosperity is there and nothing has to be taken from anybody and nobody has to be forced to do anything. Simply follow what everybody thinks are the rules. The stock market has almost nothing to do with financing businesses which is what every American will tell you is what it does. The stock market has turned into a source of income independent of promoting businesses in the USA. If the USA would make the economy the national interest and eliminate actions not in the national interest prosperity would prevail and there would be money to take care of all needs. But money is not being used for business, money is used to secure and payoff paper transactions that have nothing to do with the economy. Billions of trades a day take place that have nothing to do with the economy of the USA yet the USA goes out of its way to facilitate this diversion of money from the national interest of the USA. Making products to sell and pay the bills is the national interest of this country. Not increasing the amount of money that the USA needs to borrow to operate. If the stock market did as claimed and money was invested in USA jobs producing industries the bills would be paid, prosperity would prevail we would become an example for the world and world peace would prevail. Make money go back to work instead of using money to secure bets on the outcomes of businesses. Money has to be spent to have any value or use.

    We are going to learn ,if Robert Mueller is able to complete his investigation ,which I doubt, that America has been compromised so long ago by so many bad actors that the depth of corruption is so far out of control that's it's just unfixable. That absolutely every GOP office holder has been elected through illegal means . They are all criminals. That so many billionaires have gotten that way through crime that they cannot be touched. Virtually all o f them re criminals. That in 2004 Ohios dieblod voters servers were routed through server in a basement of a bank in Chattanooga Tennessee. Where they were altered . That even the GOP primary was hacked . That Eric Prince ,brother of Betsy Devos , planning on building a secret police force and strip mining afganistan for precious minerals.

    So when all these billionaire criminals are exposed do you suppose they will bow to the rule of law? Or fight.

    They are going to fight like cornered rats. I will be surprised if there is not a civil war ,right here in America by next month.

    Al this shit is coming out . America has been taken over a long time ago . We are at he break point , now.

    Yes, other people are running this government than our elected people; everything is "corrupted' with money. For instance the NRA has now dictated the FL State government what they only can do related to gun protection. A "fat slob" NRA delegated woman by the name of Hammer sits in the FL congress and dictates what the GOP members can do.

    This country is taken over by the "mob" (Trump) as well a bunch of "brainless billionaires" who likely got their money via "loopholes" in the laws here. This government here is just easy to manipulate for them because most of them are as corrupt.

    Last several posts are sad but interesting. I agree. Corruption everywhere. If you're not corrupt you're not trying hard enough. I agree the potential depth of it all may mean it's too far gone.

    A best selling blockbuster book exposing much of the problem would be nice.

    Tony, I guess writing such will require at least 10 volumes with 1000 pages each. That is because "corruption" is everywhere in this country.

    Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United by Zephyr Teachout was quite interesting and well received. She wrote it in 2014 though, so it doesn't speak anything of Trump or Trumpism.
