Where have all the flowers gone? Do we need a personal support story forum? I know it is depressing but you can't give up. We need the 99 Tell us your personal struggle. A synopsis of why it's just becoming too hard. We need stories to match the opinions. We need to share our common bond.

Gentrification is a big problem for the long-time residents of a neighborhood. Ghettoization is also one. Both create domestic refugees galore. I'd been caught in both types so I felt them firsthand.

Corrupt money of politicians/business eelites from overseas are oppressive here in the U.S. Corrupt practices of politicians/business eelites here in the U.S. are oppressive in creating both ghettos and gentrified neighborhoods here in the U.S.A.

''Much has been made of the conflict between Bannon’s Christian nationalism and the transnationalism of Trump’s more establishment aides, particularly his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. And Bannon may well get voted off this gory reality show entirely before long (or maybe, given current legal troubles, it will be Kushner). Given these palace intrigues, it’s worth underlining that when it comes to deconstructing the state, and outsourcing as much as possible to for-profit corporations, Bannon and Kushner are not in conflict but in perfect alignment.

''Under the cover of this administration’s constant cloud of chaos – some deliberately generated by Trump, much of it foisted upon him by his incompetence and avarice – this shared agenda is being pursued with methodical and unblinking focus. Trump and his cabinet of former corporate executives are remaking government at a startling pace to serve the interests of their own businesses, their former businesses and their tax bracket as a whole. For instance, within hours of taking office, Trump called for a massive tax cut, which would see corporations pay just 15% (down from 35%), and pledged to slash regulations by 75%. His tax plan includes a range of other breaks and loopholes for very wealthy people like the ones inhabiting his cabinet (not to mention himself). The healthcare plan he has backed will cause approximately 23 million people to lose coverage, while handing out yet more tax breaks to the rich.'' - from this must read article by Naomi Klein ...

''While Americans endlessly battle each other over seemingly important choices like Clinton and Trump or Democrats and Republicans, it is clear that the majority of the population has little understanding of how the U.S. government operates. Yet, for those who pay the price for the apathy and confusion of the general population of the West, it often becomes stunningly obvious that neither presidents nor political parties in America represent any discernible difference in the ongoing agenda of the Deep State and the rest of the oligarchical apparatus. Indeed, that agenda always marches forward regardless of who is president or which political party is in control.'' from

The ''flowers'' are still here but new blooms are inhibited from springing up here due to the way the forum is being used OR .. should that really be: NOT Used?! At this time when The USA's 99% are looking for ideas and concepts that the Corporate MSM will NOT go near,this forum can be so much more IF TPTB here can widen the accessibility of this ...
