A Tale of Two Americas: Where the Rich Get Richer and the Poor Go to Jail

'This is the tale of two Americas, where the rich get richer and the poor go to jail.

Aided and abetted by the likes of Attorney General Jeff Sessions—a man who wouldn’t recognize the Constitution if it smacked him in the face—the American dream has become the American scheme: the rich are getting richer and more powerful, while anyone who doesn’t belong to the power elite gets poorer and more powerless to do anything about the nation’s steady slide towards fascism, authoritarianism and a profit-driven police state.

Not content to merely pander to law enforcement and add to its military largesse with weaponry and equipment designed for war, Sessions has made a concerted effort to expand the police state’s power to search, strip, seize, raid, steal from, arrest and jail Americans for any infraction, no matter how insignificant.

Now Sessions has given state courts the green light to resume their practice of jailing individuals who are unable to pay the hefty fines imposed by the American police state. In doing so, Sessions has once again shown himself to be not only a shill for the Deep State but an enemy of the people.

First, some background on debtors’ prisons, which jail people who cannot afford to pay the exorbitant fines imposed on them by courts and other government agencies.

Congress banned debtors’ prisons in 1833.'

Not only are U.S. citizens going to jail,  we are dying sooner.

Life expectancy in America has declined for two years in a row

JUST as Americans headed home for the year-end holidays, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued its annual report on mortality—which had no news to celebrate. According to the report, published on December 21st, life expectancy in America fell in 2016, for the second year in a row. An American baby born in 2016 can expect to live on average 78.6 years, down from 78.9 in 2014. The last time life expectancy was lower than in the preceding year was in 1993. The last time it fell for two consecutive years was in 1962-63.

Other statistics suggest that this alarming trend is caused by the epidemic of addiction to opioids, which is becoming deadlier. Drug overdoses claimed more than 63,000 lives in 2016. Two-thirds of these deaths were caused by opioids, including potent synthetic drugs such as fentanyl and tramadol, which are easier to overdo by accident and are becoming more popular among illegal drug users.

I saw on streets of Belgrade book of Moore, Michael wrote a book about that  "Dude, Where's My Country?". New York: Warner Books ( 2003 ). Black humor.
We believed in Michael Moore and his struggle for justice for poor . I hope so he is lost his moral authority in USA and UK. Thanks God, in Serbia there no more his movies, in book stores there is no more his books...

How about going to jail for failing to pay child support? That's a nightmare for many. Sure a lot of them probably aren't good dads, but the court and the mothers come up with some figure including all kinds of things the man might not agree with paying for. Talk about modern day slavery. Don't like vaccines or formulas? Too bad. The perfectly innocent and righteous mothers and courts will force you to pay for them through a shitty j.o.b. (just over broke) And try getting better work while bogged down in the court system. I swear it's the root cause of half the crime in this country.

To add to poseidonlost,  some states will not let you renew your driver's license if you fall behind on child support.  So if you get caught driving without a license, back into the system you go.

Oh and guess who was/is in the business of processing child support payments
