  1. Such raw truth is hard to find in the blizzard of agenda “news” these days.
    Thanks for the informative article Tom.
    It causes one to ponder things that some don’t want to be considered. Hopefully one day, those who are already poor, and those who are becoming poor, not only in these states, but all states will also have an epiphany and look up to see who controls the puppet strings, and why. Perhaps then the clarity of the realization that their racism, which unfortunately is almost genetically inherited now for some, has allowed them to be used to further the financial gain of a few. Not to be pessimistic but probably not in my lifetime, but hopefully one day……
    Live life, love everyone, just because it’s the right thing to do.
    Good day!
