As I have been talking to people all over the United States, I have asked everyone I have spoken to about their income and most, " Not All " people have indicated that their medium salary is less than $30.000 dollars. In most cases their salary is less than $22.000.00 dollars. I do not know how these polls are conducted but my figures are from the horses mouth so to to speak. There are people living off of their life savings and with family pitching in to help. I have no idea what will happen when this source runs dry. If you are in this group leave a comment so the rest of America will see they are not alone. I can only imagine what will happen if things don't change pretty soon and I pray that things will change. I personally think our government officials are out of touch and the greed bug bites them on the hind end! I live in Dobson, North Carolina. I wish there was a way I could raise a few million dollars so I could give so many families cash money so they could help their plight and in some cases, such as mine, I would have the money to start a business to hopefully create jobs to help those that are able to do any kind of work they could perform. The only reason I would include my name in this is the fact I know I'm not greedy and would have a fund put back so if the business that was started was failing I could go into another venture. I have had a business before and was doing very well until I had to compete with tha likes of Wal-Mart and so forth! I did keep my employees until the last day of operation because they were loyal employees and if my business was going to fail I was going to take them with me to the end of the journey. I wasn't going to make cuts to lower the bottom line which is what some people call business decisions. They drew their last paychecks the day I drew mine. By the way My salary was the same as their's. If you know and trust someone in or around your community I would encourage the haves to do the same for the have nots if there is anyone that is known to have the capability of running a business and who is srong enough to resist greed. A loving, giving trustworthy person or persons is the key to making programs like this a success! This could be a small first step to bringing our country out of the economic mess we are in. Next on my list would be to attack NAFTA, " The North American Free Trade Agreement " as this has been a disaster! I am a member of a small church that doesn't have but a very few members but we were able put 6 gift bags together and were able to help 6 families have a happier Thanksgiving! We were very proud to be able to do this. I know some people find it hard to trust people so check out what happens to money you may donate. With the right people involved in these organizations they can make a big difference! If you think these are good ideas leave your comment. If you have some other ideas leave these comments as your comments could lead to helping others in need also. This is just something to think about and when these ideas are succesful if you have participated you would not believe how good you would feel! Have a blessed day, oldtincan!
