    yeah, it is bad, and “coming to a neighborhood near you!” and congress thinks a $2.10 increase in minimum wage will actually amount to a *real* tangible difference when minimum wage is so low? Let *any* of those bastards try to live on $7.25 and hour and just rent an apartment. forget a car, electricity, heat, and food. what a joke…

    I registered on the givegetnation.net to see how that works, waiting for a e-mail confirmation/activation. The data from the US Census of the growing disparity is more proof that the state or better this civilization is a failure! Couldn’t believe how little of the money actually reach those it was supposed to help and from “non profits”, what a joke.

    I used to donate regularly to charities. But when you learn that the “administrative overhead” is so high and is oftentimes paying for yahts and fancy cars, it takes all the meaning out of it.

    What I found so interesting about the articles is how the American paradigm is being shattered. I don’t blame just the “politcal rights” as alleged in the article, corporate America has exported as many jobs and businesses as they can.

    Capitalism and civilization are at fault. Having to “buy” everything for out existence is wrong, it turns every living human into a wage slave, and it turns the planet into a wasteland.

    I’m still convinced that there must be a better way for humans to live.
