    of all that is wrong in America....minimum wage, rigged elections, income inequality, unaffordable tuition, lack of health care.....the list seems interminable. If the American people can be given credit for anything it's their ability to tolerate abuse.  What I want to know is  --  what will it  take to get them off their a+++s to put an end to the abuse....all of it?

      One's on Medicaid, works two crappy part-time jobs, and wants out of the dead-end relationship she's in but can't leave her boyfriend because she can't afford her own apartment; and the other works four crappy part-time jobs, is constantly stressed out, and has no time to enjoy life because she's always got to work. Both vote Republican because "Obama goes all over the world apologizing for America - I've heard tape of him doing it!" and "He's going to take away our GUNS!!!!" (Actually, now the gun-nut conspiracy is he's just going to ban the ammo).

      F***ing amazing.

      I vote we run Rick Scott out of Florida on a high-speed rail.
