It Just Doesn’t Make Sense

“…Freedom lies outside the walls, outside the pattern of society; but to be free of the pattern you have to understand the whole content of it, which is to understand your mind.

You may call me an idealist
You may see me as a fool
But I’ll just never understand
Why some folks seem to need to be cruel

“Everybody’s doing it”
“We’ve always done it this way”
So many lame excuses
For making some else’s life difficult today

We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying.  According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year.  Let that number sink in for a moment.  You can’t support a middle class family in America today on just $2,500 a month – especially after taxes are taken out.  And yet more than half of all workers in this country make less than that each month.  In order to have a thriving middle…
