And, why is that our reality? Because here in the good ol' USofA we must give
great returns to those who DON'T WORK: investors. What are we teaching our
children? "You must work for nothing so that some stockholder can retire

When you hear some men talk about their love of country it's a sign they
expect to be paid for it.
