Facebook and Twitter are part of an industry? Neither one generates a viable product and survive on annoying and intrusive ad placement. Google, Amazon, Linked-In... social, not valuable or capable of sustaining economy wherever they moor themselves. More- cancer than the answer.
People- there are more than $700 TRILLION in derivative debts outstanding BESIDES the fiat money created out of QE. It's OWED money. By whom? YOU!!! It's a mathematical formula-- give money to big virtual nothings because they wouldn't exist if left to compete in free enterprise arenas, mesmerize the masses into thinking they are relevant through social pressure and psychopathic exploitation, hold them responsible for the debt for generations to come.
We need family-sustaining JOBS and CAREERS, not aliens like Bezos and a Silicon Valley colluding with Wall Street and driving us like cattle towards permanent indenture. WAKE UP.

There are still many smaller US based companies that actually produce high quality goods that are exported ( believe it or not) and they do cost more. But how does this happen? WE buy those lower quality goods for less up front cost and fund the overseas buyers to purchase OUR goods while we continue to consume "table scraps" from them. It does not have to be this way.

Because I am busy, I have the paper delivered on the weekends. Love relaxing and reading the Sunday paper.
Online payments are prey for hackers, though using cards is getting dangerous in stores. I use a green dot card.
As far as fantasy football, whatever, LOL
Again, we see US manufacturing growth fall to oversees countries. When is the public going to learn that Big Box Stores are the cause of your dwindling economy.
Let's support Small Neighborhood Business. It's what got us here in the first place!!!!!!!!!!
What if the grid goes down, or major infrastructure is destroyed, or the satellite system is destroyed by some unforeseen solar burst? Seems we are very dependent on intangible products.
Just a thought.
