I had a brilliant rage published on Helium.com; but they disputed my fiery rhetoric and deleted the article.  Oh, yes, they did.  I shall try it one more time.  Let’s get a new system that is fair and actually works.

The greed of this world is not right.  We no longer have to accept it in any way.  We all have the capacity for change and growth.

 

Improving the world starts with us.

The poor, the crazy, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the destitute, all these have their special place among the lowest of the classes.  Their numbers grow, but dispassionately we say, the poor are always with us.  Yes, the poor are always with us, so I guess that makes it okay.

The two families are neighbors, one the property owners and one the sharecroppers.   Two charismatic soldiers and their families, one white, one black, bound together by need, weather, circumstance. They came home from World War II to  the Delta country of Mississippi, a rich farmland, coveted by black and white farmers alike.  The soldiers became friends; their time in the military had equalized them.  They came back from the war different men.  The problem was that society had not become different.

The United States economy is precariously balanced on the price of a gallon of gas.  Heating, cooking, and driving are all dependent on this factor, the price of a gallon of gas.  If the money boys could figure a way for people to eat gas, they would be thrilled.  They have to make do with profits on fuel and heat; and those profits are huge.   Of course the price of food is bitterly attached to the transportation cost of goods.

It’s time to find valid recycling options for plastic. What kind of world makes things that can’t be disposed of? There’s a pretty little tree outside my house and it has a plastic bag hanging toward the top. I can’t get to it and it’s been there awhile, two years I think. Storms, wind, and time don’t seem to be doing anything helpful in the way of getting it down. So the bag’s got a grip on the tree and I have to wonder – will it be there in twenty years? Fifty years? Plastic bottles start breaking down after 700 years, but bags take a bit longer, 1000 years just to start the process.

High speed trains themselves are an enormous cost. If Dick Cheney’s Halliburton had been in the train business, Republicans would have been very efficient cheerleaders for such an enterprise; and this fair country would be slathered with train tracks.

Society has evolved into a prison state. The poor, the unwanted, and the great unwashables are put out of sight. The true predatory criminals are usually not caught. They are too smart. This system is set up in favor of the great white collar criminal, a badge of honor in these United States. If there is no specific law against a thing, money can be made from it until the barn doors are nailed shut.
