exactly. Succintly put and easy (I hope) for anyone to understand. These comments by Chris Rock

I respect way more than the video about how not to get your ass kicked because it is not about NOT getting your ass kicked at all.

It is about HOW the PERSON in CHARGE handles their self.

That is the issue.

substitute sexism for racism and females for black people and it all becomes really, really clear.

Reads like this =

Sexism is not our fault or our problem to solve. We are the victims, not the cause. I'm tired of females being told it is up to us to end sexism. If we had the ability, it would have been ended long ago.


bravenak, excuse me for this but, I have to jump off your post to point out how the two overlap.

Thank you for understanding.

The Billion Dollar a Month Club: A Runaway Transfer of Wealth to the Super-Rich

Our national wealth has grown by an astonishing $30 trillion since the recession, but most of it has gone to people who were already wealthy.
We are living through a massive redistribution of America's net worth to the beneficiaries of a financial industry that has used cunning and money and power to impose their version of economic "freedom" while deregulating any policies that might have stopped the incessant transfer of wealth.
It's getting worse, by the year and by the month. President Obama's claim that "We've recovered faster and come farther than almost any other advanced country on Earth" applies largely to the people whose wealth accumulation has dramatically pulled up the averages. The evidence is staring us in the face, but the super-rich are only watching their portfolios.

<snip>

The rest of us own a smaller and smaller share of a nation that we, and our ancestors before us, all helped to build. Unprincipled members of business and government have taken away the financial regulations and progressive taxes that once protected the majority of Americans. It has been argued that a Financial Speculation Tax might be the best approach to stop the wealth transfer carnage. We have to do something. The splitting of our society is nearly beyond repair.

Military healthcare (TriCare) is supported by Tax Dollars. If we are not healthy enough to

work and make enough money to support our Military then the House Of Cards will cave in on itself.

We all need to support each other.

We all need the same HealthCare.

How hard is this to understand?
