US life expectancy drops for second year in a row - CNN
For two years we have been told America is booming, it is supposedly the richest country in history right now.
But just look at this diabolical report.
Just also look at where the malaise of poverty and early death is most rife, States that are consumed and addicted to Trump and his disgusting party.
The seven lowest life expectancy states in America (Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Arkansas) are as close to making no difference to being Trump's top 7 States.
Desperate people putting guns and religion ahead of their health, education and well being, and that ignorance being exploited expertly by Trump/GOP.
This, for me at least, is an addiction, a disease, people believing that someone like Trump can better them, when all the evidence is showing is he is putting them further and further into poverty, while giving all the goodies to the already wealthy.
The wealth gap worldwide is for me the greatest crime in history, but nowhere is this crime more obvious than the US, and nowhere is it more repulsive and treated with such ambivalence.
But most of all ponder the following, how in the name of christ can the supposed strongest and wealthiest economy in the history of mankind have a decline in life expectancy in 2018?
With the monstrous advances in technology, of wealth generation, of medicine, of vaccinations, of lack of wars, it is just obscene and it is immoral.
America is eating itself alive.
