    and therefore power concentrated into the hands of a very few who appear to be in ideological lock-step. None are liberals. It's all robber barons and their pet government agencies and congresspeople.

    We have been conditioned to not make suggestions of violence, but this situation isn't going to be chnaged by petitions and "please and thank you".

    The PATRIOT act will be used against those who might seek to do something effective: they'll be called terrorists and smeared in the conservative media.

    I think they have completely taken over, we're their cattle and we're highly replenishable so none of us really matter.

    I also think they want to wipe out 3/4 the human population because they are unneeded.

    Spray tons of carcinogens into the ocean to hide petroleum spewed from a hastily-drilled hole from a greedy corporation, but don't smoke pot.

      We might do things like barter with each other, figure out ways to power our homes with solar power.  What if we just refused to play?  I hear Wall Street's noticed a lot of us are pulling our money out, and now they're becoming alarmed.

        but I'm lucky to have a home and live indoors.

        I get very agitated hearing about those rich fucks who make millions of dollars a year not being much brighter than me.

        I have spent my life working with the poor, like an idiot.

        All along I should have been positioning myself to cater to the rich. THAT'S where the money is.

        I still like the feeling of "helping the poor".

        Doesn't pay the bills but I feel like I'm doing the right thing.

        •  You ARE doing the right thing, and that still (0+ / 0-)

          counts for everything, doc.  You feed not only your own soul, but ours too.  As long as one person, just one, is still out there in service to doing what's right, there's still hope.
