This is a piece I wrote years ago about society and it's treatment of the "lower classes" of society.I felt like sharing it with STP.


You program us with your one track minds,
you model us from infancy to be good,
little soldiers in your war against poverty.

You strip us of all self-sufficiency,
and feed us your chemical products.

You change our rights to accommodate your,
political fashions and trends while ignoring our humanity.

Children cry out in the streets from hunger,
and you turn your backs on them.

You shun and attempt to dissuade those that would help them.
You cast out and criminalize those of us who dare to think
for themselves.

Since when are self expression and individuality crimes?
You assign us numbers and dehumanize us so you can sleep at night,
when you oppress us and steal from us.

You exploit us unfairly to buy your second house and your 5th car,
while we beg in the streets for stale bread.

You tell us what to eat,what to wear, and who to love.

What right do you have?

You force us to learn your ways to fulfill your needs and wants of us.

What about our needs,our wants?

You reward the immoral with riches,making them richer still while
punishing the moral for suffering in poverty.

You lie,steal,kill and wage wars in the name of profit,
yet we’re the criminals.What have you become?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
