Yep, that high school diploma is worthless if you don't know how to get on the dole.
Fair market!? You are either a numb working stiff or an absolute idiot if you're willing to pay that rate.

maelstrom. Your syntax is worse than remedial. Obviously you must be pointing three fingers at yourself when at the same time you castigate those who obtained a "Worthless Diploma." The only theme point note worthy.

carlo Poliak, you are either basking in the sun within the realm of the elite or, you are only fooling yourself until time catches up to catch you trying in the middle.
Embrace total defeat. There is no way you can afford gas, food, 2.3 kid average family, armored SUV to get through the ghetto and onto the grocery store, and health insurance. Prepare yourself for government warehousing while jumping through the hoops and filling out forms. The perks are good, if you can establish an amicable relationship with a doctor, his secretary won't slam the phone on you when you call with your Medicare card in hand.

maelstrom. Your rational is "Helter Skelter!!!" I am a commoner...whom the aristocracts resent when they dare to tread on their turf. I become involved pragmatically and I will commit my self as a candidate for the district (3) house of rep seat 2008 and have the solution to your concerns. I will "give no mercy" to these aristocract clowns, for "they will show me no mercy," since they are in collusion with the shadow govt. connections that controls the U.S congress. The best representatives "money can buy!"

You can either hang out at the main topix links including, Top Stories, US, Offbeat...
or write some javascript to serve up a convenient link to top stories at each of 50 states and District of Columbia.
Start here-http://www.topix.com/city
It would require a lager array but I think it would be possible to write a script to serve up the link to any city in the USA but, those forums are sparsely populated, not much chance to engage with anyone.
Good luck with your campaign but don't invest too much of yourself in it, the guys at the country club have already decided who can contend and not.

malestrom. Your diplomacy advice is thoughful. "Damn the Torpoedos, full speed ahead." Check the dictionary description of "involved." Negative encouragement. I am determined...Regardless of consequences.
