    It is a sad situation but money rules. American politicians care more about money then they care American people. The price we are paying is a lot more than a few holes in the road. I like your comments.

    Too many folks think it's an "either or" scenario.

    You can be rich and have a loving family!

    You can be rich and believe in God!

    There's a real difference between living and "getting by". Financial security means freedom and having options.

    That's the key to life, Readmikenow.

    Do a good job, and get rewarded.

    Do it for the money, and you'll never be much good.

    I also believe that family, faith, a clean earth, peace, humanity etc are more important as well, but work gives value to the symbol of money. The creator is more important than the created symbol.

    So you don't believe in having money for luxuries, travel, going to fine restaurants, and pursuit of the finer things of life. So you believe in living a very rudimentary existence....hmmm.

    "Money can't by you love or happiness".

    I've never met anyone who was broke and happy about it.

    Love & happiness can't put a roof over your head or food in your stomach, pay your medical expenses, or transportation. Money is a required to sustain

    I certainly agree Audrey,also have money failed citizens before ?

    Yes , notice. when the Great Depression reached its nadir, some 13 to 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half of the country’s banks had failed. 

    Many committed suicide

    Well said but people who are poor have just a good of a chance of getting better educational opportunities because they can get financial aid.

    I'd say 25% to 30% of the worlds population lives without money, cars, heat, A/C.

    I'm in Honduras right now, and people are as poor as dirt.

    Yet at night I hear laughing and music played for free.

    You've been sold a set of false ideas.

    Love.family/friends DON'T put a roof over one's head, provide food on the table, or offer a socioeconomic cushion for hard times. MONEY DOES THAT! Family/friends can desert you but money NEVER does!

    Very true Brandon , money is valuble but limited, like a table game of poker chips , those chips only hold value between you and the players at the time the game is played , once the game is over , the chips have no value at all, money is the same.

    Ec 2:11 But when I reflected on all the works that my own hands had done and on all the hard work that I had toiled to accomplish, I saw that everything was futile a chasing after the wind.there was no true value under the sun. King Solomon words.
