Subject: RE: BS: Walmart Workers Strikes...
Bobert... it's not just a matter of pay...

it's a combination of pay, inflation, a society based on waste... but mostly the accumulation of wealth & resources by a small group (corporations & greedy individuals) at the expense of everyone else.

the 1% is the new "aristocracy"... with all the perks & sense of entitlement that goes with such arrogance... the "little people" are those they need to keep up their sense of superiority.

national health care should be part of our national security... it hasn't escaped the notice of our armed forces that the young people that they hope to recruit are not all in the best of shape.

I think what we need is more respect for individuals... not this back biting, scapegoating crap we have now...
