    50% of Americans are not hurting.....enough.....yet.

    In time, the scale will be so skewed, that apathy might be conquered.

    Until then, apathy and fear keep the worker bees in line.

    Truth be known, I am afraid to protest out of fear of retaliation ending up harming my grandchildren.

    I have read too many books about life in 20th century China I guess.

    Lists.  You get put on lists.

    Someone has to frame resistance in a way that makes resistance cool, even fun and safe.  Non-compliance seems like the best form of resistence, imo.  It can be subtle even undiscernable.

    For example, imagine all the employees at a McDonald's store working at an unhurried pace regardless of the size of the lines?  All smiling, all working, but not at the usual warp speed.  What is management going to do, fire them all?  No one person in this scenario can be deemed a ring leader.

    We could call it the SLOW'N DOWN movement.  All workers in all fields could join in, as most are now doing the jobs of 2 or more people.

    Just a thought.

    Perhaps that ad group that advertised a Book Burning Party to help save the Troy Library can help?

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
