Promises, Promises was a great musical on Broadway. Promises, promises… A few for some, many for naught. How many are kept ? Hundreds more forgotten.
Hyperbole donald promises the world, metaphorically, insults almost everyone who didn’t vote for him or had any competence at all. “you’re fired” was just transposed from la la TV land.
America was full of promise, until djt won the electoral College… Promises, promises for 188,000 thousand dead. Kids in detention centers. Violence on the streets. When you lose, promise us you’ll leave the White House in January.

America has misspent financing for ‘luxury’ rentals way beyond the means of too many. Apartments used to be called “garden” or “efficiency.”
As a Senior I am still paying market rates for my rent which amounts to 90% or more of my income. Being frozen in situ, I have no choice. I was on the “waiting List” of a Princeton management company for 5 years.
Last year, they told me I was on the wrong list and had to re-apply. I was approved for a mortgage about 12 years ago, but almost all of those funds and my “security deposit” was applied to my rent in this Covid-19 crisis.
Money is being made here but not by me.
Now, I know I am insecure too.

Economic imbalance is the core of the problem.
Solipsism is the result of this economic chaos from the 1-10% trickling down to us. It has only gotten worse because money and billions grow on their own just sitting in off-shore or private banking accounts.
Elitist snobs are pervasive in the Senate, Incompetents drive the Cabinet and djt’s brain.
Disinformation, fake news pops out of his head in all directions.
Then the networks carry his tirades as “news.” C’mon !!!!
