    I don't know whether you've taken a look around lately but the "successful" have basically reached the point where they have a free hand to do whatever they want. No one "created" a permanent poverty class. A lot of ignorant people are making illinformed decisions because they are ignorant, not because anyone is manipulating them.........................

    The poverty rate has been 12-15% since the 60s, and the begining of Welfare in America. No ghetto in America has been changed despite being Democrat strongholds for all that time. Democrats need poor people to stay poor, so they can get votes.

    Yes when government doesn't force terms than it is a negotiation.

    As long as unions are bared from negotiating representation there should be a min wage.

    Even if what you said was taken as 100% true, it in no way changes the fact that ignorant individuals are of their own free will opting to make bad choices............................

Does it go to the Treasury?

    Good evening, Jack.
    I'm sorry but I don't have any idea about the answer to your question.

    Good evening, Polgara.
