It all sounds so apocalyptic but Dixie perhaps you should run for office. At least you can identify the myriad of problems and that is half the battle. Just think the everyday car mechanic will likely be a thing of the past too. Just plug in the sucker and the computer does the rest. Already I see a lot of smaller car repair shops closing down. And it will all be more expensive of course. Ever notice that the cost of car repairs and used cars have gone up way beyond inflation and the cost of living rates? Cripes you can't buy a decent used cars these days without handing over a small fortune. And the price of a college education has gone up so high one can't even discuss it properly. Which is why I get so pissed off when these spoiled asshole free ride black athletes squeal about not getting paid. And even a four year college degree doesn't really cut it these days for the most part does it? So that probably means more schooling and more bricks of gold needed to pay for it. The emergence of Walmart back when killed off so many mid line stores where back in the day employees could make a decent living, support a family, buy a house while climbing the ladder. Walmart practically has no ladder and is basically some pseudo-Chinese-Corporate cheap house (not really that cheap when you consider the crap you just bought lasted a full week) that has been a detriment to people and the overall economy. And now we are entering phase two of this corporation-alienation kill local retail jobs syndrome with Amazon getting their robot hands on more and more things. Speaking of automation and robots maybe I am being paranoid but this whole new technological wave scares the living daylights out of me. I picture a horror science fiction scenario where the robots take over and kill us all. Like Porky the Pig said "That's All Folks." The economy continues to ROT for so many people. And like the above Dixie posts so many people have NO money to speak of and their future is riddled with anxiety. Good jobs are scarce. Opioid use has gone through the roof. And it is plain and simple white people are not happy. True happiness for white people is just a distant memory at this point. The difference these days from the past is the prospect of hope and a better society seemed at least plausible back then. Today that idea sounds like something out of a fairy tale.
