Americans Endure Suffering

Pain, despair and poverty reach fever pitch for unemployed workers

Randy Chase has lived in his pickup truck for months. Luckily, the tiny cab of his 1996 Nissan is easy to heat and that's a life saver in the sub-freezing winter chill outside of Denver. So, armed with a gas-powered generator and a small electric heater, the 57-year-old makes do.

Darkness Looms

U.S. institutions will be tested like never before in the 31 days until Biden's inauguration

It's a fitting end to a crappy year: White House officials are calling us in a panic about President Trump's erratic behavior. England is panicking about a possible super-spreading virus strain.

The USA is in the deepest financial crisis since 1919. And the typical person will get $600.00? Its better than nothing, but it will only go a short way. It will pay for a dental visit to fix a tooth. Maybe 2 new tires on the SUV. A nice snowblower. But won't get anyone out of deep financial trouble.

The Govt should cap credit card interest to 5% APR. Tell the card companies to be real careful who they issues credit to, as its unsecured and the govt won't bale out VISA or others for losses. That will bring down consumer debt load, monthly payments and deleverage all the credit card debt. The huge issue is the 21.99% apr on credit cards. Its ballooning debt. I have a 800 credit rating and pay off cards in total each month. The lowest rate I can get is 14% and yet the fed has 0% bonds and 3% mortgage rates. Over time, the 21.99% rates will bankrupt people who do not pay off balances. Students loans are going to be nightmares, to forgive them would only insult people like me that worked a real crummy abusive job during college to pay it off as I attended. Plus loans for things like music or art are not that vital.

11:43 who ya kidding? You never paid off your student loans.

And you don't have an 800 credit rating either.

Bull shut...the Democrats whined for years after the 2016 election that it was tampered with by Russian Interference...there was never proof. Mueller couldn't make the case. AND NOW...the Democrats are being given servings of what they dished out. They will be hounded thru the midterms, which they will lose. And then for the rest of th he Harris term, after Joe resigns. It's going to be quite a ride.

THE KANSAS CITY ATHEIST COALITION does not approve of the Mayor's Christmas tree. This is a violation of the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. The Freedom From Religion Foundation lawyers will hear about this unless the city subunits!

You know the Demoncraps cheated when one of 10 believe that the election was rigged so Basement Joe would win. Nearly a third of Independents believe it, too. Karma will be a bitch to the Dems in 2022 elections. The bastards will reap what they sow.

Romney is still butt-hurt that Trump won a presidential election (actually two of them) and he couldn't win one, and then Trump didn't put him in a cabinet position. What a RINO loser!

Have they declared me the winner yet? I won, by a lot, despite the fact the vote totals and the Electoral College say otherwise!

@4:21, 4:24, is high credit and a lack of student loans a thing you cannot comprehend? I too have high credit and paid off my student loans at 36 (still a long ass time though). But, I also live in a crappy little house and drive crappy old cars, because I don't want for more.

7:15, Mueller found that Russia had interfered in our election.

What he couldn't prove was Trump's collusion. He said they tried to collude but were too incompetent to make it work. That's hardly exoneration.

Even the Republican Senate said that Russia interfered.

"300,000 plan to attend Trump's Second Inauguration Rally on January 20th".
That sounds valid, that's about the actual total of the Popular Vote he received, discounting the effect of the Russian hacking of the Election System.

Outgoing Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday he saw no basis for the federal government seizing voting machines and that he did not intend to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations of voter fraud — again breaking with President Trump as the commander in chief entertains increasingly desperate measures to overturn the election.
