What Is This Country Coming To When A 7 Year Old Girl Can’t Even Have A Lemonade Stand Without Getting Shut Down By The Cops?

What in the world has happened to the United States of America?  Once upon a time, young boys and girls across this great land of ours could set up little lemonade stands and make a little bit of extra cash without fear of being raided by the cops.  But those days are apparently gone.  In the town of Tulare, California one little 7-year-old  girl recently had her lemonade stand shut down by authorities because she did not have the proper business permits.  So what in the world are authorities doing running around shutting down lemonade stands for?  Don’t they have anything better to do?  After all, if your car is stolen these days you are very fortunate if you can even get a cop to come out to the scene.  But apparently stopping a little girl from raising money so that she can go to Disneyland is a top priority in the town of Tulare.  So now what is this little 7-year-old girl supposed to think about trying to live the American Dream?

16 Signs That The Rich Are Getting Richer And The Poor Are Getting Poorer

Never before in American history has so much wealth been concentrated in the hands of so few.  Once upon a time, children throughout the United States were taught that America was the land of opportunity where anyone can make it if they work really hard.  But today the system is designed so that wealth flows into the pockets of the rich as the rest of us struggle feverishly to stay above water.  The once great middle class that did so much to define America as a nation is slowly being squeezed out of existence.  For tens of millions of ordinary Americans, the American Dream is rapidly becoming the American Nightmare.  The labor of blue collar workers was once the engine that built the United States into an economic powerhouse, but today many of those workers have been replaced by robots and computers, or their jobs have been shipped overseas by greedy corporate executives.  Those who are in a position to exploit advances in technology and third world labor pools are becoming exceedingly wealthy, while the rest of us are left wondering why it seems as though we are working harder and harder for less and less.  The sad truth is that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.  A very small percentage of Americans are sitting on massive piles of cash while an increasing number of Americans are having to rely on government handouts just to survive.  So is this a good thing for America?

Welcome To The American Dream Blog

Welcome to the American Dream blog!  So what is this site going to be about?  It is going to be about trying to wake up as many people as possible.  A generation ago, our parents and grandparents could take a prosperous future in the most powerful nation on earth for granted.  But now that has fundamentally changed.  Now the U.S. government, state governments, the big corporations and American consumers have piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world.  Not only have we completely mortgaged the future of our children and grandchildren, but we have also brought the U.S. financial system to the brink of complete destruction.  The U.S. dollar, once the most stable and most powerful currency in the world, is now dropping dramatically in value and is in a death spiral.  Unemployment is spiking all over America, and in some areas it is now next to impossible to get a good job.  Millions of quality jobs have been shipped overseas and they simply are not going to come back.  It seems like each year we set another record for mortgage foreclosures and another record for personal bankruptcies.
