8. The stress is coming at us from all angles. Financial mostly (health "care", education, food,

our new "tax plan," insurance rates, day care, utilities, vehicles, etc.) In conjunction with wages that have stagnated for decades. It like Liz Warren sez: It's rigged. And from Carlin: The real owners don't want educated people. They wasn't them just smart enough to run the machines, but not capable of critical thinking. "It's the American Dream. Cause you've got to be asleep to believe it."
Throw in normalized gun violence, opioid epidemic, undermining of our institutions by a Russian asset and his handlers, flaunting the Rule of Law by same, the constant propaganda of Faux News (the real "Fake News" and hate radio, kids in cages, the willful destruction of the environment, the neglect of minorities, indigenous peoples, veterans, immigrants and two incomes not enough to make ends meet....And we're allegedly the richest country in the history of the World so how can all this be happening?
Yeah, wonder why we're stressed.
