Economy News Nightmare: 20 Things That You Should Not Read If You Do Not Want To Become Very Angry

Well I read them and no I didn't get anymore angry than I already am.


Original Source

Today America is very, very frustrated. In fact, we probably have not seen this level of anger in the country since World War 2 ended. So why are so many Americans so frustrated and so angry right now? Well, for most Americans it comes down to the economy. Very few things are more frustrating than not being able to find a job that will enable you to pay the mortgage and feed your family. Middle class Americans that do have a little bit of money are digging into their savings and investments at a staggering rate as they desperately try to keep their heads above water. Millions of other families that do not have a "safety cushion" are on the verge of losing their homes or have already been callously tossed out onto the streets by big, greedy banks. Meanwhile, our politicians continue to burden us with increasingly larger amounts of government debt and they stand idly by as our jobs and our industries are shipped overseas. So even though the mainstream media seems absolutely puzzled by the growing anger in America, the truth is that it is not a great mystery. The economy is an absolute nightmare, and if it gets even worse people are going to become even more angry.



I can't get any angrier than I now am. Is it possible for us to repair these problems and leave future generations with anything other than this disaster?

I bought that one, hook, line and sinker. All I can say is DANG, if only half of that was true we'd be screwed and I know there's more than half the truth there. Thank's for posting that, people have to become aware of this stuff. It's not looking good for us, although I'm trying my best to remain optomistic. I'm more than concerned about our immediate future.

Meh, in all honesty I'm sick of being angry and am ready to get in on the action of manipulating pathetic fools that are addicted to idiotic entertainment. It's not too difficult to ride the childish fads that keep on changing and develop a product that the fools will purchase by the millions. Don't be mad, guys. Play the game. Ultimately we have nobody to blame but ourselves, and I'm done with all that. So get rich if ya got the potential, else get out my way. No time for losers in this ever increasingly chaotic world.

#2 15 billion dollars: the total amount of compensation that Goldman Sachs paid out to its employees for 2010.


What does this mean exactly? It sounds like they're describing normal payroll. Are we supposed to be outraged by a normal business expense from a ridiculously huge corporation?

A trade deficit since 1976? Well Who is to blame for that one? I tell you our rulers owe us nothing and are not even patriots!

"Overall, Goldman Sachs received a $12.9 billion payout from the government's bailout of AIG, which was at one time the world's largest insurance company" www.usatoday.com...

I noticed the coke cans became smaller last year, they are 2 ounces smaller....My grocery bill has sky rocketed almost doubled. SO what does my family do? eat less that is what we do. My family is taking out our 401 savings, we have 10 years before we think we can retire and use social security as a secondary income, but that is of course not going to happen, because we are going to have to use our 401 plan to get by, and we all know Social Security wont be around in 10 years.... I saw all this comming, but how to stop the government, how to stop the government????
Perhaps a complete government overhaul of all new people? We could change this nightmare if more americans would believe in the power of their choices

Well, they may very well be a valid thing to be angry about. It's curious as to why the author of the article didn't report just that.

The unemployed people and those holding temporary/part-time jobs will be the most annoyed at the current government and media lies. However, we're all afraid of police brutality. Most of us are afraid of coming out fight. We're even afraid of committing suicide. So all of us will suffer slow and painful lifetime.

The real figures of jobless are being suppressed around the world not only in the United States. I'm a living evidence.
