In a free country we should be able to say Merry Christmas without fear of offending others. Our right to say this should be respected as we should respect the freedom of speech of others.
Despite the oppressive Political Correctness disease that is sweeping our country (led by the main stream media), we are still blessed to live in a time of such abundance. Never in history has even royalty had the
luxuries that most of us have today. Even Americans that live in
so-called “Poverty” are well above the world’s average income level.
The worldwide median income is about $9,733 per household according to Gallup.com
or $808 per month. The US Poverty level is $24,250 for a family of 4 according to HealthCare.gov which is $2020 per month. In addition, they get earned income credit, food stamps, health care benefits and more, worth an estimated $1,000 per month. So Americans in poverty live over 3 times better than the average citizen of the planet earth. According to Euro News, 48% of the worlds wealth belongs to 1% of the population, which includes Americans in Poverty.
According to the Global Rich List, ....a family of five living just above the poverty line in the US is actually “the one percent” compared to the rest of the world.
But as the planet becomes more globalized and socialized, the lower income citizens will increase and the higher ones like us will decrease, moving closer to parity.
So for now, we should give thanks and appreciate and protect our country. While charity is good, we would not borrow money to provide for strangers, which is what our country is doing when we bring in immigrants and let them get on welfare, food stamps and free health care.
