'Helping' the poor and sharing some of the mindless, degrading work that the poor have to do are TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS.

: Like Frog, my wife was a court appointed attorney for abused and neglected children for five years...

: Court appointed attorneys for the poor do more than sympathize with the poor -- they improve their lives in real, concrete ways that are far more meaningful than cult-like Trostkyites handing out leaflets on the street corner and blathering on a electronic chatboard.

Your good intentions are good---but they are also CHARITABLE. I am interested in a society where everyone HELPS THEMSELVES instead of waiting for liberals (who enjoy some of capitalist society, while impugning the rest) to 'help' them like parents.

Don't you get it?

P.S. As far as 'blathering on a electronic chatboard' goes---why is it OK for YOU to do so, but it's somehow NOT OK for me?
