Just another sad american day
Out in the library lobby I put up the notice that bus fares are being raised a quarter per ride. A little later I heard on the radio a small town librarian bitterly complain about her crappy health insurance. She was asked if she thought healthcare is a right. She didn't believe it was and bizarrely connected this to how unfair she found it that people on welfare got better healthcare than her.
The polarization is now fully complete. We did not expect to end up here. But there are now only two kinds of people in the world:
Those who believe that the rich have an unfairly large share, and those who believe that the poor do.
