New York born and Bronx raised, my friend Thomas opens up about the shift in the American landscape on many levels and how it has affected his life personally.
Real talk from a real man who hopes his words lets others know that they are not the only ones feeling the crunch in this ever changing world!

Can America Ever Return To Its Former Glory In The Eyes Of The Working Class?
This I’m sure is a show topic question that will evoke numerous responses for sure!
While many citizens of the United States of America will probably say that the days of U.S.’s former so called glory did nothing for them in the manner it did if you were a filthy rich investment banker who manipulated the retirement funds of those hard working middle class blue collar workers who gave their lives to you in trust to only find themselves with nothing to sit back on in their golden years, or a crooked politician who manipulated laws to favor the affluent business owners to receive kickbacks under the table.
They definitely have a point if they feel this way but the one thing that most will agree on is that this current version of the United States of America is NOT what it once was as it seems to be plummeting down into a bottomless abyss at the speed of light.
We all feel that we know what the causes are and most are not wrong in their assessments. The job market in the private sector and government level is simply horrible. Layoffs are not that rare occurrence that may happen briefly for a time for the few, but it’s almost guaranteed in the minds of the masses as most people feel that it’s a matter of WHEN it will happen as the fear of not having a job is what many wake up to everyday as they go to work fearful if the paycheck they receive this week might be their last.
Healthcare has been accepted as a force game of legalized gambling that is played between the insurance companies and the people that depend on them to trick them out of coverage through the fine print clauses as now most don’t have to go out to the casino to gamble anymore when all you have to do is roll the dice with these huge insurance companies in a financial game of Russian Roulette whose odds almost always favor these opportunistic predators in corporate suits.
Law Enforcement is seen more and more as the strong arm of an emerging Police State and those who formerly balked that such an idea could ever come to fruition now are beginning to sound like YouTube video conspiracy theorist as Police are viewed as one big violent gang to shake down the people into a passive subservience of the government that they work for. To serve and protect? Sure! They will do just that when your live in a favorable zip code and pay huge campaign donations to your compromised political officials.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness has become replaced with bare survival, oppression and the escape into a reality television show for a taste of someone else’s engineered and contrived happiness.
Even the last place that you would expect to be so compromised – our houses of worship and the so called spiritual men and women of God – are now being revealed to be profit driven instead of driven to live by the words of the prophets that make up the powerful words in the Holy Scriptures. We now in many cases provide our previous years tax returns to our churches so that THEY can make a projection on what WE pay to them while still living in the fear of living in such an unstable world while this holy shysters live high on the hog!
Racism has always been and will continue to be so but it stung a whole lot less when one could come home to their own community to feel a sense of love, camaraderie and comfort before going back out into the workforce with others who did not like them because of the color of their skin but was too busy looking forward to going back into THEIR isolate world. Now, those of us who were considered to be at the bottom of the barrel and undesirable are blamed for the sins of the affluent as the Fox News mentality wants to now “take their country back.” This state of disarray in America may just come from the divine order of balance that suggests that this land be returned to those who truly have the right to say that they want THEIR country back.
Hope is diminishing and resentment, the anarchist philosophy and a sense of doom is on the rise. As America becomes a carved out useless husk of its former glory the people are now waking up to the real picture of what has been going on right up under their noses for generations. The mighty oak tree appears to be toppling but we never paid the sound of the axe chopping away at its base because we once were too caught up in the abundance free money in the form of easy no credit check mortgage loans and home refinancing cash which was a set up to make the tree called America topple over as those who ran with the real cash deposited in in foreign accounts to live in a way that most could only dream of.
So why America’s former glory may not have been the most wonderful time for many of us, the few crumbs that we USED to have now are not even there anymore and that deficient past that we thought had so much to be desired now appears to be a Utopian dream that we wish could back even for a little while.
Who is truly to blame for this and do we have to bear some of the responsibility for not heeding the signs and adjusting our lifestyles accordingly for what we now see in hindsight as being the inevitable?
This is a conversation that is not only long overdue but it’s also a call to action to make some drastic changes in the way that we live and to utilize the legal rights and powers that we still have once we do!
Let’s set it off in a way that will cause the crooks in high places to run for cover in a rare display of the unified voices of WE THE PEOPLE!
I want everyone to chime in with their viewpoints and opinions in a politically incorrect manner to get our juices flowing to take action!
It’s not too late for the revolution to begin!
