Who decided that it would be a good idea to become so dependent on foreign oil? The average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States is now $3.80.
Who decided that it would be a good idea for the United States to have the highest incarceration rate in the entire world?
Who decided that it would be a good idea to allow private companies to run many of our prisons?
Who decided that it would be a good idea to put large amounts of "pink slime" into the school lunches of America's school children?
Cartel and their agents before our very eyes! Stirling
There simply is not enough money out there to keep all of the pension commitments that have been made. Something has got to give. In the end, millions of elderly Americans will likely be plunged into poverty as pensions disappear.
