The Waltons, of Wal-Mart fame have the collective wealth equal to the bottom 30% of us. And they spend their time (and obscene wealth) on figuring out ways to avoid paying taxes.

What the hell do wealthy folks need with so much wealth that they'll never use in their lifetimes or the lifetimes of their offspring? We're living in an oligarchy now where my neighbor's children eat from my garbage cans (I took them some fruit and rice under cover of darkness) and I care for plenty of young pregnant women who have no health insurance except what the State (fortunately) provides. Thank you, Washington State.

I care for women who live in grand houses and I care for women who live in one room apartments downtown. Women with nannies and women with food stamps.

It's going to be insanely hot today. I'm heading south to a beach park where Felix can get in the water. My neighborhood is going to be packed today with inebriated sunburned revelers and I'd just as soon be gone.

I don't think capitalism is working that well. Honestly, it seems to have some huge faults in it.

And you have truly and goodly cared for me my darling friend. Also a reason I don't shop at Wally-World.

Don't you know that the Waltons are a bit short for buying an entire country.

Dear Ms Moon-right?


Ellena-they may own a country. We just haven't been informed yet.
