It is often said that a society can be evaluated by how it treats its weakest members.  Certainly the issue of the relations between the sexes will never go away, but even more important is how AmeriKKKan society treats our children.  It is a national disgrace IMHO that a single child should go to bed hungry at night while the rich gorge themselves at the deepest trough in history.

As with most of the other posts I have made to this blog, I will add more to this list later, so please check back, or post a reply if you are concerned with this issue.
