29. 50 million in poverty, nearly that many on food stamps, 50,000 people a month being

yanked out of their homes while we file over a hundred thousand more foreclosures, 1 in 4 seniors with NO income other than an insufficient social security, 24 million people on the November BLS report state they want a job, and the latest JOLTS report says there are 3.3 million jobs available. Meanwhile we are paying $40 billion a month to wealthy people to keep their assets propped up, in hopes that their largess will tinkle down upon us. And kids are leaving school on Friday, won't eat 'till they get back Monday.

No need to advocate violence. It's being perpetrated on us already. And just because one is accused of advocating violence, that doesn't make the accuser a friend. Maybe they are just naive. Or maybe worse...

Malcom X said "Anytime a shepherd, a pastor, teach you and me not to run from the white man, and at the same time teach us don't fight the white man, he's a traitor, to you and me."

I am peaceful, respectful, and if it is part of a strategy that makes sense, even though the cost is high, I'm down for it. But when it's no longer time to be nice, or if it's just some naive fool's idea that it's how their world should look, then they are likely untrustworthy, as far as I am concerned.

The vultures screwed up when they killed the Twinkies, I think
