52. OMFG - POOR PEOPLE DON'T HAVE INTERNET

Sorry about the caps - but no, EVERYONE does not do business online. Poor people don't have internet. People with no credit cards do very little online shopping. Many of the poor can't even get a bank account. Many of our elders do not do business online. Not everyone has broadband, even is someone can afford it, it may not be available - rural communities often don't.

The PO's current problems are largely the result of having to "pre-fund" something like 70 years of health and retirement benefits - a burden imposed surely with the intent of destroying the system. Because a publicly funded method of communication is anathema to our Corporate Overlords.
