I want to know if it's GMO!

It's our right to know.

It's a simple addition to food labels.

What harm could that do other than give consumers more information?

More information. How is that bad?

I would vote Republican if...



Our country has been driven to the right so hard for so long, 1956 Republicans are to the left of today's Democrats.

A Scary Fact.

It took humans 200,000 years to reach a population of one billion. That was in about 1800.

By 1960, we topped 3 billion.

Today, 55 years later, we're at 7 billion.

This is not our parent's or grandparent's world. Our children will be living in a very different world than we live in now.

Until I see empathy and compassion in capitalism, I'm all for moving a bit towards socialism.

We hear about "the entitlement generation" and how people these days are leeching off the government. In my mind, the government is for the people and of the people. Therefore, the people should benefit. If some surfer dude eats lobster while on welfare, he is offset by a dozen single moms supporting their kids.

Americans deserve entitlements. We deserve safety nets and we've earned it.

I've worked my entire life and have never needed unemployment or welfare but I want to know that my kids have that safety net if the company they work for moves their job overseas and leave them high and dry.

In my kids' lifetime, our population will probably double. It's time we started to care for our children and our planet. Profits be damned.

100 yrs ago my grandmother was afraid commercial flight would destroy heaven.

If too many planes flew through the clouds.

Maybe there's some truth to that. Has anyone gotten in to heaven recently?

Scientists warn about climate change and our response is... No! It can't be. 'Think about the impact on profits!

Not OK

I could see that the white man did not care about each other the way our people did.

He has grown with me.

Over the years, Jim Carrey has gained my respect.
.
This topped it off. Great comedian, great philosopher.

There is more time between the Stegosaurus and T-Rex than between the T-Rex and you.

Man = Meteor

Let's cut Corporate Welfare to Social Welfare levels!

Corporate welfare costs our country way more than social welfare and it effects far fewer people. Both are paid by us, through taxes.

Corporate welfare supports people who earn upwards of 200 to 300 times what the workers for these companies earn.

Many of these companies have workers that earn so little that they need social welfare to get by... even though the corporations are posting record profits.

This is double dipping.

Our taxes pay for corporate welfare and social welfare. Yet, these corporations make profits from underpaid employees. Record profits during these years that our country is struggling.

Forget my thread's title. It should be... "Let's cut Corporate Welfare".

Our priorities are so screwed up...

We cut entitlements but not military spending.

Increase military spending but cut support for veterans.

Cut spending on the nations infrastructure but boost corporate entitlements.

The Land of the Free has the highest proportion of it's population behind bars than any other country in the world. Mostly in private, for profit, prisons.

Throw drug users in jail but let CEO's that defraud our country remain free and and able to keep their jobs.

...there are many more examples of how we are not who we pretend to be.
