  • America, and its problems, make it hard to love

    The Patriot Ledger - 11/24/2012

    The United States is a hard country to love right now.

    Economic growth has been anemic, too many Americans are looking for work, others are watching their real incomes fall, and the middle class is seeing its purchasing power decline. Income inequality is at historic highs; the ever-widening gap between low wage earners and the few who earn millions has been amply documented.

    And if you pay even the slightest attention to the news, between now and the end of the year you will hear the term “fiscal cliff” until you are numb. The term describes several big events set to occur at the end of this year. But even an agreement to keep us from heading over the cliff won’t do anything about the worst problems plaguing our country.
