    The Wake-Up Call

    The Wake-Up Call

    Even a welfare recipient can save money to the side. Someone who recieves SSI or SSD as well. Saving money has never been easy for a majority of people. The truth is every single person should have a retirement account. You don't have to put $100 in your Roth IRA. Perhaps place $10 or $8 per month, $5 or $3 is easier. Because of the internet individuals type blogs online to inform others how they manage their dollars. These people are known as financial bloggers. Bloggers can be useful. I've seen content creators on YouTube make a career discussing finances. If you're not starting off so great, watching YouTube videos can help you to manage your money. One example: How to pay off loan. Another example: How to keep up with your bills. There are also apps that prove to be effective in everyday spending. Much to anyone's surprise we humans do get old. That is why we need retirement. Once our bodies weaken, it could prevent us physically from working. I hope this will convince people. Don't beat yourself up if you're not able to afford your bills.

    Healthcare Our Obstacle

    Healthcare Our Obstacle

    There are very good reasons to have free healthcare. People in the United States cannot afford the prices out of pocket. The biggest problem is the insurance companies. Insurance companies don't look out for their consumers. They never have and never will. The Americans are not stupid. We have opened our eyes and ears to the truth. Health insurance corporations are not here to help us in our time of need. Keep in mind their goal is to take money from us. Oftentimes, a person will make a call to have their coverage paid for, asking for assistance to cover the cost of his or her medical bill, only to be told the it will not be paid for. What is the point of having insurance if you are left to pay out of pocket each time you visit the doctor? On the news, a woman died before she could get to the hospital. The men who drove the ambulance refused to place her inside the vehicle. They refused because she was uninsured.

    Expense to the Highest

    Expense to the Highest

    Due to the economy's inflation, prices went up after our imports were taxed. After that, globalization has been turning into a complex issue. If we look further into this problem, we can decipher how things work. International corporations from all over the globe need money. Not just for profits, but to put currencies back into their nation's economy. When a nation makes a trade, they have to pay for the cost. If the supply and demand are not met, it could be disastrous. Politicians and congress will have to ask or negotiate with business owners, and convince these imports. Keep in mind traders have to be paid back in return. Yes, we have the T.T.P. organization for this job. The T.T.P did not always provide the best options. Their methods often work as a balancing act. One example: New Zealand, who ships their imports to Australia, would be the one to pay the minimum cost. If the required cost cannot be met, Australia's prices could skyrocket at a severe level. Then, New Zealand could also have to deal with a surge in prices. High costs can lead to limited spending power out of the citizens' hands. New Zealand's economy will not always suffer because of Australia's mishandled on pricing. This is where T.T.P can come in, to rectify the problem. Every other form of organization, such as activists and workers' unions, will have to pitch in. It's going to be hard to find solutions. This will take time and effort. Every person from all political sides need to step in.

    Political Opinion: GOP Party

    Political Opinion: GOP Party

    In the beginning of US history, the Republican Party was about helping the citizens first. But now in 2019, I have been hearing on the news: GOP is jumping ship. I can't help but to wonder, did they even think about their voters? Before quitting their jobs, did the GOP stop for five minutes in their spare time of the people? The people who relied on them to make better policies, so that owners could keep their small businesses up and running? Conservative parents and non-parents who wish to see more job opportunities in their local neighborhoods? With the debate on gun control, republicans have run away out of sight, leaving us scratching our heads, pondering how they failed to act upon something serious and heinous. Do not get me wrong, I am part of the Independent Party. I am not in favor of conservative ideals. I am just worried where this country is heading. A small percentage still try to help the US in any way they can. There was an article on the news of a female senator in the state of Oregon. She sent the cops to go after a group of republicans, because they refused to show up to decide on a bill about climate change. If you ask me, thats pretty nuts. Politicians should be more competent than this. (R-M) Susan Collins herself is another culprit herself. When a young woman walked up to her to ask what will be done about the school shootings, Susan vaguely said she did not have much to comment. Granted, there is not much she could possibly talk about, but the American people do have the right to know if they will be safe. (R-TX) Will Hurd marks as the fifth republican of Texas to leave during a time there was a crisis. He goes on to say: The reason he left congress was because of Trump's inaction of handling gun policy. I understand it's a way to object against our president. But wouldn't it make sense to stay and band together, to come up with an idea of their own? Try to push the idea until it gets approved? Sure, creating new laws takes a certain amount of time before anything is decided. I don't want republicans to take over the White House. I just feel the GOP is not going to be able to get back up after they have fallen. It has been hard for the GOP to defend for Trump, after so many terrible comments from the president himself. The public opinion is wavering, and not a single sign of hope is tangible at this point. It breaks my heart the GOP has decided to forget about the people who voted for them into office, after placing all their trust to get certain things done. By leaving their seats, the republicans are leaving America behind.
