    Pete,
    This is why it is up to the individual to help their fellow man and not have the government do it for them! No one especially politicians should have the power to dictate how we help out the less fortunate among us. There will always be various levels of wealth from the guy with the penthouse to the guy living in a mud hut. Unfortunate but that's the reality of it.

    I dont know if this has much to do with the topicof this thread but,,, that hasnt stopped me before.

    1 dollar! Used to be worth 4 SILVER quarters.. that was 1 dollar.

    Now,, those 4 silver quarters are worth approx. 13.00 dollars.

    Our promissory note from the Fed, last time I heard, is worth about .04 cents...

    The day is very close, where we will have to define what "Money" is..
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    I couldn't agree with you more.

    Most of those people who live in penthouses are porpers compared to those who live in castles. 3 or 4 hundred million is chicken feed to them. But they do use those porpers to further their agenda.

    The schism between wealthy and poor is not the issue it is the increase in the size of that schism, just take a look at how incomes were distributed back in the good ol days when your nation was born when it really was the land of opportunity:

    The closer a Gini figure gets to 0, the more evenly a country's income is divvied up. The closer they get to 1, the more of a country's wealth goes to its rich. Note: the colonies have the lowest number of the bunch by far.

    Nah. We'll just arm RK and his fellow bikers with guillotines and they can take care of the situation for us.

    i got three nice young dogs, a '95 tacoma with topper, good friends and good grounds. i am leaving today with a rusty 870 20 ga. for the www.greentreehuntingclub.com/ to close out the season.

    if i am not one of the 85.....i can only assume that "trickle down" is working like a "flash flood" for this old preachers son!
