    Oh is it? So basically you agree, the poor cannot be liked by decent, honest people, only politicians?

    Is there a particular reason we have to like/dislike the poor? How about we leave the poor alone and the poor leave us alone. We exist in paralleled realities anyway.

    You said...only politicians like the poor. That means they should be what? Disliked? As for you leaving the poor alone, It sounds silly really because they make for a critical mass of the elecorate as opposed to the Rich. And policies of both sides along with political activism actually reach these opposing worlds.

    Now as for Parallel worlds, you should really get out get some fresh air.

    I asked you if the "Jesus" part was out of place? If you believe that it was simply some leftist manipulation in order to hijack Jesus? Just a question.

    Communist Romania was churning out subsidized bread for the masses, the belief being if the common mass had bread they might not rebel, it was also compulsory to be employed, mainly for piss-poor wages, most of the good quality items being produced including the best of the Beef, Pork, milk, cheese crops etc..etc.. being sold off to Soviet Russia to pay off the war debt for being liberated by Soviet Russia, Ceausescu managed to clear the debt in record time but at the cost of the peoples health, when the collapse came the country was well and truly up the river without a paddle, the effects still linger even some 23 years later.

    Maybe that bread shop should stop expecting me to pay for my bread AND someone else's bread too. Maybe that bread shop can put some limits on its handouts if it's worried about going out of business.
