    .The results are in: Nobody trusts anyone anymore

    For nearly 20 years, communications group Edelman has been gauging the public’s trust in key institutions like business, government, and the media. You don’t need a survey of more than 33,000 people in 28
    countries to know that there is an anti-establishment mood sweeping the globe, but the numbers are even more stark.

    In short, there has been a “global implosion” in trust, Edelman says. This year’s survey recorded the largest-ever drop of trust in business, government, the media, and NGOs. A majority of people in two-thirds of countries surveyed now distrust these institutions, with all-time low levels of trust recorded in a number of places.

    Season Standings for the NPL (National Party League)

    GOP Fasicsts 1-0
    DNC NeoLiberals 0-1

    Sorry only two teams allowed in this league. Which do you root for?

    • EdgarHF

      NPL is also known as the National Patrician’s League

      • Dosido3

        How about I don’t join the league? My grandfather was right when he said “vote the bums out”. Sometimes he says “vote the bums out, they’ve had their turn” when he was feeling chatty. I’m on the VTBO team.

          I will no longer be voting for the lesser evil , I can promise you that .

    Newborn baby dies in frigid cold after being found with his homeless mother at Portland bus stop .
    http://usuncut.com/class-war/n

    Portland has also seen the deaths of four other homeless people by hypothermia so far this year, for an average of at least one homeless person freezing to death in Portland every four days, as of this writing. That’s more hypothermia-related deaths in a span of less than three weeks than Portland has seen over the last five years, combined.

    One of the most widely covered hypothermia-related deaths was Karen Lee Batts, a 52-year-old woman who died of exposure shortly after being evicted from her apartment for owing just $338 in late rent.

    Portland is in the midst of a punishing shortage of affordable housing. The Portland Housing Bureau reported that rents had risen across the city BY AN AVERAGE OF 34 % between 2010 and 2015.

    Capitalism , ain’t it great ?
