    1. ....the really untold story, as is so often the case in America, is the story of poverty. This is a country where politicians of both parties, with a few exceptions, talk about "the middle class"—not the poor. The New York Times reported Thursday on two studies, one from Columbia University and the other from the University of Chicago and Notre Dame, which both found millions of Americans have been plunged into poverty over the last few months. The Columbia study found the number of poor people in America has grown by 8 million since May. The Chicago-Notre Dame work found 6 million have entered poverty in the last three months. These numbers map onto existing inequities in our society, falling more heavily on Black Americans.

    One of the study authors put it simply: "These numbers are very concerning," Bruce D. Meyer of U. Chicago told the Times. "They tell us people are having a lot more trouble paying their bills, paying their rent, putting food on the table.".....

    2. This is how the "fake news" president "Makes America Great Again" (MAGA) in his four years of chaos when the Dow is skyrocketing but the economy is in free fall.

    On June 5 this year, he took to a White House podium and said the economy right now is like a rocket ship...just ready to soar into year end and into 2021.

    At the end of his reign, he should be "rewarded" with a one-way ticket to Mars to let him experience and understand the real meaning of soaring like a rocket ship. :)

    Congress does nothing because they can't do anything. They don't create wealth, and their handouts are paltry at best.

    Yes, they don't create wealth, but they suck up wealth like a black hole. :)
