A succinct summary of where we are John Jay.

The aggrandized weak are a source of power for the privileged, who provide for them with the wealth they take from us. It is not a steady, sustainable state.

We have had enough of this.

sDee:

no, it is hardly a sustainable state, and as more people "... vote for a living ..." in becomes increasingly unsustainable.

the only question is, when do we hit the streets with pitchforks and burning staves.

john jay

p.s. always nice to hear from you, sDee.

john jay

to everybody:

these god damned little security things are a royal pain in the butt.

my goodness, what irritating damned things.

sDee

And it is always nice to stop by and find insight in your words.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." Benjamin Franklin"

john jay
