    This is hard to believe: 76% of people live paycheck to paycheck

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/78-pe...141500006.html

    I mean seriously, what do people do with their money?

    And this is even scarier:

    https://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcom...ww.google.com/

    Half of people 55 to 64 have no retirement savings.

    Maybe instead of teaching "Diversity" in high schools, they should teach a class in basic economics.

    Maybe instead of poor people voting to raise taxes and lower services on themselves so rich people and corporations and bankers can get richer for really no reason at all, poor people should hire people to represent them to well...you know....represent them.

    Another thought would be to support unions, which worked to provide a retirement and living wages, establishing a middle class in this country.
