I would say it is our worship of capitalism. A woman has a baby,gets 6 weeks to bond and then right back into the workforce she goes.Momm and dad both work to pay bills and to buy all the latest crap to keep up with everyone else. To much emphasis put on material worth while the parents both work all week with the kids spending more time with non family and being raised by day care attendants and teachers. That is what is wrong with our country. Everyone has been brainwashed to beloeve that money or material things are worth more than time with the family and that assets are equal to character.

First step is to toss the t.v. Television is nothing more than a tool by the Globalists to keep you on the treadmill of materialism. It's amazing how much crap I "don't" buy now after sending back my satellite equipment.

It costs 3 times the amount to live than it did 10 yrs. ago. There are many couples who work two jobs! It's bullshit but it's true. It's not to keep up with everyone else. We work just to survive and to have a small amount of fun. We spend almost nothing on entertainment. We have Internet but not aNy kind of tv hookup. We have a small savings. We help the kids with their kids. We don't have an expensive car or house or anything else! That is what's wrong with the world, greed on the richest part. They have tons of money but keep charging us more for lesser value. People have to have faith in our Lord to get through this life. Everyone's going to die unless they're raptured, so I don't know why they want to get us and keep us down by raiding our bankbook!

Just keep in mind that wherever you shop and spend your money....you support however they pay or treat employees. It is a good idea to check all that out and if they are ruthless, quit shopping there.

America is a very wealthy country filled with poor people. While most people do not want to admit the truth it is a fact Americans are becoming poorer and poorer. Most people THINK that they are in the middle class but the reality is they are poor. The top ten percent of people as defined by income own ninety percent of all wealth. Income disparity is the number one long term problem in America.

Child poverty in America is second only to Romania.What does that say? Denmark, Norway,Sweden have the US beat in most areas. Go Google it. The US is 85 out of 150 countries on the Global Peace Index, even. The US IS number 1 in percentage of imprisoned people, though.

That hits the nail on the head. The system is maintained by the the workin people. They are the ones that obey the rules, work to survive, are proud of what they have and who they are. The wealthy take credit and the politicians make false promises. There are many people in this little ole area that think they are better because they have more than they need to get by and outshine their neighbor when in fact most of it was earned by parents or grandparents before things got skewed. If they had to start from scratch they wouldn't have any more than the average joe or in many cases not as much. Those people turn my stomach. Will it get better? If you're middle aged then probly not in your lifetime. Could it get worse? More than likely. The children are the key to fixing the future. Teach them the evils of money and material things. Teach them responsibility and compassion. Don't jump on the sports band wagon. It will run you ragged and break you. As long as we follow along then those at the top will keep right on dreamin up ways to get our money and make life more difficult.

The US has the most prisoners. Because those other countries but their offenders to death or dismemberment. They won't house a prisoner unless they want to torture them with a slow, torturous death by starvation and dehydration! Most countries have many poor and few rich. Once they have the money, they have the means to keep others in control. Norway was on the news about they were the happiest people. Lol!

If the children are the key to fixing our future, then we are all screwed. We have too many parents who spend too little time with our children. This is due to the fact that parents do have to both work and YES sometimes two jobs. We have too many parents that have not been taught to be parents themselves. The drugs do not help at all, they make the parents of today spend even less time with the children. Our society has become a ME ME ME society. How are they supposed to teach the children? Why have the schools taken Home Economics out? The parents have to know how to be parents first! Government has taken away our rights to put the fear into our children by not allowing us as parents to spank our children to teach them right from wrong. I said spank NOT beat! Now the children sit there and say, "We don't have to do what you say because what are you going to do if we don't". We don't have control over our own children anymore. I respected my parents. Where is the respect now? That has been lost along the way. All I can say is God help us all!

And Christians don't have their radical terrorist nuts? Not all Muslims are radicals. Not unlike the Pilgrims who left England because they didn't like the Church of England. Many muslims live in America seeking to practice their religion the way they want.

Some radical Christian nuts: Westboro Church, Jim Jones, Paul Jennings Hill, David Koresh-Waco, TX massacre, Eric Rudolph, Scott Roeder, James Charles Kopp, all Christian Terrorists.

...and your point?
