There is no doubt that the poor have been getting poorer and the rich have been getting richer much more rapidly in recent years.  The biggest problem is that the rich can afford to buy off the politicians who are policy makers, while the poor cannot buy anyone off because they are struggling to buy food, shelter, and other essential items for bare bones living.  It is a vicious and unending circle of survival hell.

The anti-drug stance of the United States costs big bucks.  And the underground economy brings in big bucks, with no tax liability at all.  It is difficult to sympathize with a country that spends so very much on a drug war that was obviously lost long ago, and one whose economy is upside down.  Not only is this anti-drug money being spent in huge amounts, year after year, also huge amounts of taxes are not being collected or paid out on the marijuana industry alone.

In terms of philosophy, all movement is yoga, all breathing is yoga.  A simple awareness of such is all that is necessary to start a daily yoga routine.  Humans unconsciously make movements to reduce stress or to flex muscles.  The human brain is a marvelous thing, it is programmed to keep the body healthy and demands food, sleep, and exercise when it is needed.
