Since it a no brainer that this topic will be addressed during TPS, an article from The Guardian

Earn minimum wage in the US? You can afford to live in exactly 12 counties

And R’s complain about people using snap and other forms of assisted living or what they call handouts

There is also another People’s Summit going on. In a much smaller scale.

But it is also important as Perriello has a primary coming up.

As a Canadian who supports the NDP, our socialist party, I applaud the efforts of everyone connected to the People’s Summit and wish you great success in your many projects. To fully understand what happened in the 2016 U.S. Election., I would suggest to Winnie Wong, Bernie Sanders and others that they read the important article, “The Data That Turned the World Upside Down” available from the Stanford University, Stanford Public Policy Program via the Internet. The article in detail describes how Trump used the services of Cambridge Analytica against the American people using Psychometrics. To prepare for the 2018 mid-term elections in the U.S., everyone who cares about democracy needs to examine the actions of this company as it likely will again be used by the Republican Party in 2018.
