All over the world, it's the same

over the past ten years of extensive traveling in dozens of countries and talking to hundreds of people, i've come to what should be a perfectly obvious conclusion that it shouldn't take someone with a genius iq to grasp...

on the one hand, there are zillions of people on this earth - afghans, emiratis, jordanians, saudis, egyptians, greeks, italians, macedonians, serbs, bulgarians, kosovars, austrians, germans, the french, the british, the scots, the irish, the poles, the dutch, the belgians, the argentines, the chileans, the brazilians, the salvadorans, the costa ricans, the hondurans, the mexicans, the guatemalans, the panamanians, the ecuadorans, the colombians, the dominicans, the canadians, the singaporeans, the japanese, the malaysians, the vietnamese, the chinese and, yes, the americans - who all want to be able to live in peace, feed and clothe their families and make their way in this world as they so choose... on the other hand, there are a very few people scattered across those same countries and the rest of the world who are totally committed to sucking up all of the wealth and resources that could be enjoyed by ALL and making sure that those other zillions of people live their lives strictly on the terms laid down by those few...

my question is this... when are we going to tell those few to f**k off...?
