Sometimes I just want to shake people and say:
HEY! While you've been distracted by orange Hitler and Kung Flu, your life savings is evaporating, your livelihood is in serious jeopardy, and everything you want to better your life is increasing about 15-20% a year with no end in sight while your salary increases ~5% if you're lucky.
