1% Vs. All

“The head of a typical public company made $9.6 million in 2011, according to an analysis by The Associated Press using data from Equilar, an executive pay research firm. That was up more than 6 percent from the previous year, and is the second year in a row of increases. The figure is also the highest since the AP began tracking executive compensation.”

When the gap in income between the rich and the poor in a society increases, culture and the society in general deteriorate, communication, progress, and national pride crumbles. The poor retract from society entirely and the wealthy (although smaller in numbers) control the majority of political decisions through monetary contributions.

This is happening in America and around the world right now. It needs to stop or the consequences will be dire.

Religiously Poor

Image

“The lord is all you need” a common phrase in social circles throughout the United States and the world. As it turns out, you need food water and shelter to…As it goes with most impoverished societies in America one common theme seems to arise, a culture of ultra religiousness. Every image of a home in a poor neighborhood and any look inside the life of the poorest Americans yield images of Jesus on the cross, mother Mary and wall hung bible verses. This illustrates a theme of ultimate benevolence, that god or Jesus will always save you. That you don’t need money or food or clean water or work but all you need is Jesus. There is a major paradox here. Does the poverty stem from being overly religious? Or do the poor become over religious to deal with the poverty? Either way you look at it there is a missing piece and a lack of motivation stemming from this notion that all events in life are predetermined by some higher power. Why work if you were already destined to be poor?   

Bon Bon fire

Sunday evening bon Bon fires at the Villa. When you have 4 guys and two dimes with the car pulled into the back yard carrying railroad ties over a fire..there are bound to be frisky extrapolations that bring even the burliest of games into the meadow. . The everest screwdrivers rarely burn brighter than the figures. Sketchy as a pizza for $4.00. The mad library is stupid high. You don’t look high at all. You walk a little high that’s all but pick me up something. Walk off the earth. Haussen house takes 45 minutes to get 0 drinks. I’ll drive over a few trees. Hatch hit me up but not when I was there, her grandparents have a sin valley but I doubt we’ll go. You have to be very vulnerable to catch it. If you do a backflip doogie off a double story deck theres two diamond Mexicans waiting to take you by the hand. Make you glad you came.
