There are more issues, of course, ageism, poverty, gangs, drugs, police violence, and on and on it goes.  These are just a few that have had a lot of media coverage and then die out.  Because, the government can wait until everyone has to go back to their everyday lives, such as they are, and nothing changes.  Not really.  Not not where it counts.  Think minimum wage as the politicians vote NO, and then vote YES  to the outrageous raises they vote for themselves.  We don’t get to vote.  Remember that.  THEY VOTE for themselves.  We the people, have NO VOICE AT ALL.
