    Back to what I was sayin
    We need $50 teeth (that are) just as strong as the adult teeth
    We're not sharks, so we need to make that happen so people can eat and talk properly
    Too tough?

    Hippy defender here: we're about taking care of people not destroying them : we want our civilization to trend in that direction. Let's make a mission to support and enable human migration, and other behaviors that have been the hallmark of humanity. Big Universe small planet short life we can do it join the hippy movement we are one bro

    And most of the time the hippies were stoned on their asses and incapable of leading water down hill. Slackers without the ambition.

    They were much maligned in a deliberate propaganda campaign. There were lots of ambitious groups that fed the needy, protested the war, got involved in local politics, and made a difference.

    Here's another one most people are unaware of: Selling corporate income tax credits. They get tax credits, but balance sheet shows they don't owe taxes (because business didn't do so hot that quarter), so they sell their tax credits to other companies. How does stuff like that happen? Apple bought USD 6M in tax credits in OK alone. Kraft 'acquired' USD 4M That could make taxes for people a whole new ballgame, but who would pay for American infrastructure (not Apple and Kraft).

    Here's another one that popped today:

    Virginia Democratic candidate for governor in Virginia, Ralph Northam has COI investments. Seems they live by a different set of rules.

    The United States has tons of social problems.

    I'm glad that I'm not American in this regard.

    First of all the American government is quite oppressive and there are tons of Americans in jail.

    In America compared to other countries even the smallest crime will land you straight in jail.

    Also American jails are highly overcrowded because there are tons of Americans incarcerated especially in California.

    Also in United States if you are born poor then you most likely will die poor.

    Also income inequality is very huge in the United States compared to other countries. Some rich Americans own half the planet while other Americans have almost nothing or are incarcerated in jail.

    So like I said I'm glad that I don't live in the United States because then I would have been homeless, very poor or in jail.
