138. If Only.
That could happen. If only. Our differences are natural, there will always be more generous folks than others. There will always be different colors, and those who don't have the same desires. It will always be what is used to scapegoat or divide people. The elite know this, they spend a long time planning it, since they're so effing rich they don't have to occupy their time working like we do. Hard to organize, hard to even keep up with what's going on, when one works 40-60 a week, or may have a family to fit in when not working, or may be just too tired after all that to do more than pass out on the couch to prepare for the next work day. Corporations make daily demands of all of us for things they mostly benefit from. We get paid by them, so we comply. But we watch as years go by and 'belt-tightening' sees pay stagnate, inflation adjusted.

Hence the need to add more hours of work elsewhere, if you're lucky enough to find those jobs in this recession. Productivity in America at an all-time high, highest in the world. Yet I debate those who say an American worker making over minimum wage may be overpaid. When you advise them of billions going to the top brass, they defend THEIR right. They are the enablers among the masses. Keeping what minds have spare time given the above schedule/lifestyle occupied with propaganda 180 degrees the opposite of what they need. An attempt, even as flawed as it is, to make HC affordable, which the vast majority of Americans will benefit from, gets spun into being a catastrophic descent into tyranny. God help them. They don't get it. They're mislead by those Nazis. Again. Nazi = Not-See. They hope they do 'not see' what is being done to them.
