    While everyone is complaining, who is doing something about it?
    While everyone is getting poorer, many are getting richer. Most of these places or others will be full. How? Just like everyone is making money in this corrupted country, money laundry or drugs. It is easy really. Everyone knows it but no one is willing to do something about it.
