Re: SUVs and pickups are just a lifestyle fad.
Some housing is cheap, however most of us can't even afford that, due to parasitic housing economics and practices by large real estate firms, will never be given the opportunity to purchase a house, and instead are forced to rent at 1 and 1/2 to twice the rate of a mortgage for the same property. and if you don't want it to be a disease ridden hole in the wall you're going to have to get two jobs and abused stimulants in order to minimize your sleep. And that still leaves you hopelessly in debt, therefore in constant danger of losing any stability you have.
So between staying alive and maintaining employment eligibility, there's usually nothing left. The artificial expense that creates the high prophit for some companies is bankrupting most Americans but we're not even allowed to file for bankruptcy anymore. The amount of money you'd have to owe in the US to declare bankruptcy is unattainable by the average American. It's pretty f***** over here for people who weren't born well off, or have too much integrity to hurt other people discreetly inorder to climb the ladder.
Morality and wealth have an inverse relationship in the USA.
If you're willing to be the most inhumane parasitic abuser of other people, while maintaining discretion and the illusion of decency, you can become wealthy in the US.
if you have any spark of humanity in you at all it will get in the way of the noxious actions required to become wealthy I the usa.
All the honest people are desperate ly poor here.
All the people in the middle class and up are more or less corrupt, the corruption increasing more self as you go up the scale.
Our systems of economics don't allow for anything else.
