    Crunch the numbers Muhammed.

    It's cheaper to teach a man how to fish.

    Telling a man he has to purchase a fishing licence to fish is the same as sodomising someone without giving him a reach around.

    I hate to tell you this, but some barbecue orders just went through my office.

    Buying power isn't cheap, gotta create lots of hate, rage and then steal from the successful and buy power from the masses - isn't cheap man!

And the fact that it already has the highest prison population in the world also supports this theory. But let's see if the people agree with me
    Feeding and helping those in need should be our top priority. As a country, a society and as people. Why did we spend so much? Because the way our country and the world works people need help.

    Because people can be poor, out of work, struggling financially, etc, but I'm just spit-balling here, I guess. I heard there was like this economic crash in 2007, nasty stuff apparently.

    I personaly cant wait for China to go through that exipiriance (again when considering what happend in the late 19th century and the early 17th century).
    The people aren't really living the dream though.

    That is correct, but WHY do people need help so much? I believe Slaves need help, free people can help themselves.

    People need help because people are greedy

    And they will. Just don't be in the grocery store doorway as they're coming out after helping themselves.

    You pretty much took the words right out of my mouth.

    I don't have any ironclad proof, but I'm sure that it has something to do with the elimination with extreme prejudice of two fine dogs.

    That, plus you can bet that the Illuminati are tied up with this in some way.
