PRIORITIES

“Don't tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I'll tell you what they are.” - James Fricke

"The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich." - John Berger



(The graphics were created last year, thus more up-to-date info could be included, but you get the point...and hopefully others who cheer vulture capitalism do, too.)

4. Just the tip of the iceburgh

Don't get me started on football coaches making two or three million dollars a year (Nick Saban makes $45 million in BASE salary over the next 8 years-what does Alabama pay their teachers?). Go beyond that to the freak show society we live in today. If you're weird and crazy enough, you can get a reality show about you. We laugh about Honey Boo Boo out-drawing the Republican National Convention but that's just sick. In the words of Monty Python, One of the corssbeams has gone askew on the treadle!
