Ratings and Comments

Mike, Norwalk

The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, with all its welfare state tenants and other non-charitable enforced canons, does in fact (proven over, and over, and over again etc., etc., etc.) create and increase poverty. It also creates a system of slaves. As a general rule, anything you unceasingly finance and invest in (especially when it is presented in a religiously moral justification) it will increase. Finance and invest in poverty, it will increase.

Bruski, Skaneateles

Says it all.

Robert Edwards, somewhere in the USA

Tolstoi wrote many a word which this refutes.
