T or F : The reason Trump won the election and will be reelected, is this?

I wish a buck was still silver

It was back when the country was strong

Back before Elvis, before Vietnam war came along

Before the Beatles and yesterday

When a man could still work and still would

Is the best of the free life behind us now

And are the good times really over for good?

And are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell

With no kinda chance for the flag or the liberty bell?

Wish a Ford and a Chevy

Would still last ten years like they should

Is the best of the free life behind us now

And are the good times really over for good?

I wish coke was still cola

And a joint was a bad place to be

It was back before Nixon lied to us all on T.V

Before microwave ovens when a girl could still cook, and still would

Is the best of the free life behind us now

Are the good times really over for good?

Are we rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell

With no kinda chance for the flag or the liberty bell

Wish a Ford and a Chevy

Would still last ten years like they should

Is the best of the free life behind us now

And are the good times really over for good?

Stop rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell

Stand up for the flag and let's all ring the liberty bell

Let's make a Ford and a Chevy

That would still last ten years like they should

'Cause the best of the free life is still yet to come

And the good times ain't over for good

    False. Things were much worse then. We've gone uphill. Cars now can last 20 years. Cars then might last 10 -- but the humans in them often wouldn't, because they died in accidents that today would be survivable. The cars today may be more expensive to fix -- but they're also safer. Before microwaves, someone might have known how to cook, but she didn't necessarily have the time, so single mothers often had to give up their kids for adoption, because they couldn't work and cook. Those were not the good times.

    It was not good for all, blacks couldn't vote in the south, women had few rights and would not be hired for important positions, many people faced discrimination, medical care was bad but affordable, you can't stop change.

    In the US:

    The richest 1 percent now owns more of the country’s wealth than at any time in the past 50 years.

    The wealthiest 1 percent of American households own 40 percent of the country's wealth, according to a new paper by economist Edward N. Wolff. That share is higher than it has been at any point since at least 1962, according to Wolff's data, which comes from the federal Survey of Consumer Finances.

    From 2013, the share of wealth owned by the 1 percent shot up by nearly three percentage points. Wealth owned by the bottom 90 percent, meanwhile, fell over the same period. Today, the top 1 percent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined. That gap, between the ultrawealthy and everyone else, has only become wider in the past several decades.

    In the United States, the distribution of that wealth is even more skewed toward the top than the distribution of income.

    The top 20 percent of households actually own a whopping 90 percent of the stuff in America — 90 slices of pie! That's exactly 4½ slices per person, nearly triple their “ideal” share according to Norton and Ariely's survey respondents. Their average net worth? $3 million.

    That leaves just 10 percent of the pie for the remaining 80 percent of the populace. The next 20 percent of households (average net worth: $273,600) help themselves to eight slices, while the middle 20 percent ($81,700 net worth, on average) split a measly two slices.

    Don't go feeling too sorry for that middle quintile, though — at least they get some pie. The fourth quintile of households gets literally nothing: no pie. But they're still doing better than the bottom 20 percent of households, who are actually in a state of pie debt: Their net worth is underwater, meaning they owe more than they have. Combined, the average net worth of the bottom 40 percent of households is -$8,900.

    Republicans gave the rich more than 80% of the tax cut, increased the deficit, and will claim the government does not have the money for social programs.

    About 2 years ago, as the debate over Republican tax breaks for the wealthy was near its end, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) insisted that the tax cuts didn’t need to be paid for – because they’d pay for themselves. They don't.
