|Brutal truth that some would like to hide but must be revealed. We can not hide our trash behind the garage forever. The many must wake up before it is too late once again for another civilization tottering on the edge.|

|The clich'es will continue until the sightless see the light, just about the time the lambs are gone and the wolves are looking them straight into their eyes. Patrick|

|It's them Fat Cats that are to blame for all of today's trouble and woes
They have been living off the fat of the land for too long now, while the dispossesed and starving die on our streets without even a whisper

|Only the ignorant can possibly be blind to the two-tier systems that are now in place in our "socially advanced" societies: the haves and the have-nots. And it is self-explanatory how the distinction comes to be and why - yet you paint in vivid Goya here scenes of Revelation that need to line the corridors of power in the hope that, in passing, relevant eyes might witness their own ugliness in the mirror... xx|

|Some would say, "Devil take the hindmost," and "To the winner go the spoils." False promises do not house and feed people. Communism doesn't work. As long as we have property rights and hierarchies the problem will continue.

|You have to go back to The Thirties to find Americans truly furious at the suffering of the poor and forgotten. And our character and nobility of purpose has degenerated ever since. Please add my indignation to yours. I praise your fury.|

|We need a renaissance,
the rebirth of altruism,
an inundation of wisdom and
Light into the desiccated soul
of modern greed mongers ...
Fiery like an evangelist

|I think that there is a lot of bad press given to the wealthy; perhaps they are an easy target or it could simply be envy. The truth is, that without the wealthy, our government and charities would not be able to function. Even though the percentage paid may not be the same in certain cases, the wealthy DO pay huge amounts in taxes which support the less fortunate. Capitalism does not keep the wealthy from paying taxes, it simply gives us all the right to forge forward and create a means of gaining wealth. The responsibility for caring for children is with the parents. Having children that parents have no means of supporting or expecting others to take on that responsibility is wrong. If I go out and bust my butt to make a good living, I should not be punished or have my wealth stripped from me to support those who were not as inventive, did not work as hard or sacrifice as much. I agree that fixing problems does lie with each of us and that we should not wait for others to handle it for us. Good job, Lori.

|I have been in a lot of places in my seventy years, Lori, and I have never seen starving children on the streets or anywhere esle. I'm not saying there isn't any, I'm only saying I have never seen them. No children in this country starves because of the fat cats as you seem to suggest, it is usually neglect from their parent(s).|

|Well said and a strong voice hopefully not crying in the wilderness. It is indeed sad that in countries like yours and mine we can spend billions on defence, billions on research for aerospace, billions to bail out big industry, billions on world relief but little children still roam the street cold and hungry.

Fattened upon the starving lamb.
