54. You may not have lost your home

 

But many people were conned out of them by banksters with forged documents. It's called fraud and the attorney general looked the other way when it came to holding the banks accountable.

The comment makes NO mention of loss of private property rights. Yes you can own a home and if your lucky a bank wont forge documents and force you into foreclosure.

Many people loss their savings in the crash of the stock market. People believed that the stock market was a safe place to put their retirement savings. It wasn't but we were all told how great those 401k plans were. You might have been one of the lucky few who didn't lose out but many did. Many corporations have reneged on their retirement plans so that those people who thought they would get a decent retirement after working for 20 or 30 years for lower pay don't get anything. Corporations, and now the city of Detroit, routinely go through bankruptcy and end up better off then before while shedding the responsibility and contracts agreements to provide pensions for their retired workers.

We are not forced to labor? Really? We can choose to NOT work? If by choosing we starve to death, freeze to death or end up dying from a curable illness, is it really a choice? How is that a choice of any kind? And the wages these days are horrible. You try feeding your family by working 60 hours a week (if you can get the hours) as a waiter or retail sales clerk. You do not have a choice if you want to live. You must work at what ever job you can get. That is No choice, that is an ultimatum. You better work at a job or starve.

How do you know your vote was counted if you use a voting machine? There is no way to prove it wasn't simply ignored. Voting in this country is NOT a voice. It is a pretend action. We all pretend that the voting machines are not rigged. There is no evidence the machines are accurate.
