"THE UNITED STATES MILITARY INDUSTRY SUCCESS IS THE ENVY OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD! " The vast majority of the aircraft used by Canada are manufactured in the US. They call their front line fighter aircraft a CF=188. However, it is a version of our F-18 Hornet.
The GOPTaxScam was the straw that broke the markets’ back. Here’s why and how.
First, America is hugely in debt (known as “overleveraged” in econ wonkspeak).
There’s over $1.4 trillion in student debt, a number never, ever before seen in the US, and nonexistent in the rest of the world because we’re the only developed country in the world that makes students pay so much for college that they can’t attend without taking out loans.
Consumer credit card debt is over $1 trillion (the highest in history), because people have been using household debt (including low-interest of mortgages and car loans for a total of $13 trillion, a record) to maintain what was once a middle-class lifestyle, once easy with a union job.
This trend has been going on ever since Reagan declared war on working people in 1981 and began the process of destroying good union jobs.
As a result, wages have been flat or declining for over 30 years. Corporations, feeding off artificially low interest rates provided by the Fed, are also massively in debt. In fact, one of the most common hustles running over the past 7 years has been to borrow billions at less than 1% interest rate and “invest” that borrowed money in the stock market that’s been giving much higher returns than bonds.
That is assuming that what you have is the best you can do with your life. Many can be resourceful and rise above and improve their situations dramatically. Numan obviously was incapable, "hogtied" if will. Poor fella. :redface:
Thinking about it, a lot of our own experiences agree with the survey. I made a lot of business trips to California. We enjoy visiting, but would not want to live there. It was too expensive and too busy, too many cars and too many people and a general lack of politeness.
I retired from the Air Force in New Jersey. We were very happy to leave that place. The people were just generally rude.
We have friends and Mississippi and enjoy visiting their. We liked Florida, mainly because of the camp ground and weather. On the way to Florida we passed across the NE corner of Louisiana. They had a bad reputation for targeting out of staters and hauling you into court for relatively minor traffic violations rather than just letting you go and pay the ticket through the mail. We tried to avoid Louisiana, if possible.
