as things get worse for most, things get better for some

Of course, the guy looks kind of bored and not surprised because this is the way it’s always been. There’s nothing new under the sun.

The poor get poorer and the rich get richer. The thing some don’t realize is that these two things work together. The rich get richer by making the poor poorer.

The same thing: peddlers of false hopes depend on the hopelessness of people… their frustrations, fears, and failures.

As our desperate hunger for truth increases, so does the availability of lies, half-truths, and fluff. A starving man will eat his own shoe!

I’m looking for people who are discovering or rediscovering solid truth. No empty calories. Solid food.

It seems to be getting scarcer and harder to find. As are searchers!

Meet other amazing searchers at The Lasting Supper. Pull up a chair and meet us. You’ll like us.

    This is built into the political, religious, and economic systems. The cycle of good financial times for a short period for most and then bad for most and good for a few will continue as long as we continue to have the same systems. This is built into the system. This is built into Free Market Capitalism is we want real change we need a new system that is not built on getting riches and power on the backs of others. Free Market Capitalism was decided upon by those who knew they would never be wage slaves.

  2. I agree. It is a human problem.

    I want to apologize for how poorly the comment above was written. I have severe carpal tunnel syndrome as a result I’m using dictation software. It doesn’t always dictate accurately. Which is why and other forums regularly at it after I post things.
