LAST NIGHT'S STATE OF THE UNION WAS A TREMENDOUS SPEECH THAT OUTLINED THE CHANGES FOR THE BETTER THAT HAVE OCCURRED SINCE HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION TOOK OFFICE OVER 3 YEARS AGO.

WHEN I VOTED FOR HIM I HAD A FEELING THAT FOR ME IT WOULD BE A BAD THING AND SO FAR IT HAS TURNED OUT TO BE JUST THAT.

BUT FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS THE WORLD IS A BETTER PLACE AND IT HAS MORE HOPEE THAN I HAVE SEEN SINCE I WAS BORN SOME 54 YEARS AGO.

THE CHILDREN AND ESPECIALLY THE GRANDCHILREN OF GEN X HAVE THE HOPE THAT WAS STOLEN FROM US IN THE EARLY AND MID 80'S BECAUSE SOMEONE IN THE PYRAMID DECIDED THAT 20 AN HOUR AND 6 WEEKS OF VACATION WAS TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THE WORKERS TO HAVE IN 1980.

SO THEY BLEW UP THE WHOLE THING AND SENT IT TO SOUTH KOREA FIRST AND JAPAN...NOW CHINA..AND GUESS WHAT IS NEXT

VIETNAM AND SOUTHEAST ASIA..

SO NOW 20 DOLLARS AN HOUR ...$40 YEARS LATER..AFTER TAXES IS BARELY ENOUGH TO PAY THE RENT AND USED CAR PAYMENT NOT TO MENTION TAXES AND INSURANCE..UTILITIES AND ROAD TOLLS

I MEAN ONE WAY TO PHILLY ON THE TURNPIKE IN YOUR CAR IS NOW $$$$$WTF!!!???

SO $20 IS NOTHING AND THERE WAS A TIME IN THE 80'S THAT I THOUGHT 10 AN HOUR WHICH IS 20K A YEAR WAS ALL THE MONEY A SMALL FAMILY WOULD EVER NEED

INFLATION OF THE CURRENCY

SO MANY SUICIDES AND DRUG OVERDOSES OF THOSE BORN FROM 1965-1978 NOT TO MENTION DIVORCE OF 80 PERCENT YES 80 PERCENT.

THE FE THAT SURVIVE ARE HUSBAND WITH 3 JOBS AND WIFE WITH 2 TO PAY DAYCARE.

THOSE FEW BOOMERS THAT GOT A PENSION ARE THE BABYSITTERS..AND THOSE ARE THE "LUCKY" KIDS"

AS THE PRESIDENT SPOKE I FELT GREAT THAT I VOTED FOR AND CAMPAIGNED FOR FOR HIM. AND TO SEE THOSE IN THEIR 20'S AND 30 NOW..THE MILLENNIAL AND EARLY GEN Z HAVE JOBS AND HOPE AND THE YOUTHFUL ENERGY TO WORK and can get by making 15-20 an hour and the wife making the same or more if she is a nurse

THEY HAVE THE HOPE.REAL HOPE THAT AN 18 YEAR OLD IN 1983 LIVING HERE IN FAYETTE COUNTY COULD NEVER HAVE AND THE SERVICE ONLY TOOK SO MANY

VIRGINA MARLYLAND FLORIDA TEXAS OKLAHOMA AND SOME WENT TO ARIZONA AND CALIFORNIA

THE FEW THAT SURVIVED ARE NOW BACK HERE AFTER THEY SOLD THEIR HOUSE IN ORANGE COUNTRY BOUGHT FOR 150k AND GOT 550K MOVED BACK HERE AND GOT A HOUSE WITH LAND FOR 150K AND INTEREST TO LIVE ON

BUT ALOT DIDN'T AND ARE POOR IN PUBLIC HOUSING NOR ARE DEAD

THE LIVING ARE BEING THROWN OFF THE LITTLE HELP THEY GET COS HEY ITS THE REPUBLICAN THING TO DO

I ALWAYS CONSIDERED MYSELF INDEPENDENT BUT TO VOTE ONE HAS TO REGISTER SOMEWAY TO VOTE IN A PRIMARY.


I AM HAPPY FOR THE YOUNG FOLKS AND THE HOPE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS LEADERSHIP HAVE GIVEN THEM

BUT THOSE OF US EARLY AND MID GEN X THAT ARE STILL HERE IM SURE "THEY" WANT US DEAD COS WE REMEMBER THE "OLD WAYS" AND IF YOU STUDY HISTORY THAT FACT IS A NO BRAINIER.

YES THERE IS EXCEPTIONS...BUT THE RULE IS EARLY GEN X IS TOO "YOUNG" TO RETIRE" AND TOO OLD TO START OVER. AND THE FEW THAT ARE STILL ALIVE ARE BEING DENIED FOOD AND BASICS TO EXIST.

THOSE THAT LIVE IN THEIR CARS ARE BEYOND NUMBERS YOU ALL WOULD EVEN BELIEVE..AND ITS SAD...ANOTHER 10 YEARS AND ENOUGH WILL BE DEAD SO IT WONT MATTER

IT IS A BIG WORLD AND THERE ARE ALOT OF OPPORTUNITIES ......

OK..BOOMER
