Actually the poorest person I know, who is a single mother disabled ex-military and often has to move house due to failure to pay their rent, and often doesn't have a working car, bought herself a huge flat screen plasma TV which is far more expensive than anything we have, or would want.

I suppose it's a question of priorities. I figured she would get it repossessed quickly but it never happened. I guess she watches a lot of TV. Oh and wouldn't you guess it she's a Republican basically --- but doesn't vote.

And she probably thinks it's getting her high def, which it mostly likely is not.

And can you imagine how much marketing research money they spent to set up a "high-class" Wal-Mart? And how many consultants who told them there were people who would love to shop there?

Oh my goodness - a fortune. I think I posted about something they were doing with their fashion division along those lines. I'll have to see if I can find it. It was fall-down funny to hear these trendmeisters talking about WalMart.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
