    .45 cents a day
    will feed this young
    boy for a day..........
    ...............................
    ...(pondering this state
    ment)......................
    ...............................
    if that is true then why
    are some still starving?
    .45 cents? that's enuf
    to feed a child for a...day?
    .........(I'm pondering).....
    a snicker bar which is supposed
    to "satisfy you" leaves
    me unsatisfied....all the ****
    time...when...I...need...a...meal...
    and those cost .65 cents a day....
    and what if a mind is hungry?
    then....we in trouble because
    a book cost quite a bit more than
    .45 cents......does that
    mean some will.....starve........
    eat out of the garbage can of
    someone elses thrown out
    chewed and spit out on the side
    of a broken plate knowledge....
    how long were we going to back
    doors to eat/get scraps?.......some
    of us still starving....some of us still
    going to back doors...minds falling
    through trap doors...................and
    (mind pondering)..........................
    .....................................................
    ....(insightful moment to look at the
    nature of capitalism)........................
    ......................................................
    ....remember Y2K....Capitalism fueled
    many to get paid off of some folks
    fears...some were deceived into thinking
    they were hungry and bought books
    on how to combat....the inevitable....
    .....duped into thinking that stomachs
    were so empty that they bought
    survival books for 19.95....14.95
    on QVC....hunger distorts common
    sense.........satellites that pick up
    conversations thousands of miles
    away/are hung millions of
    miles away....and the world is gone
    end because a digit was taken out
    somewhere/somewhere..............
    .........45 cents to feed a child?........
    how does that divide into a BILLION
    dollars? food for everyone...instead
    of a plane no one can see on a screen
    .......(pondering)....what a stupid statement.
