Minimum wage should be $20 an hour.
Health, vision, and dental insurance should be a single-payer system.
Minimum voting age should be 16.
Defense budget should be drastically cut. And a moratorium on wars should be made, by the president and by Congress, for the next 40 years. No more wars.
Money that is being spent now on the costs of war should be used to lift those in poverty, those unemployed, and those counting on social security.
Wall Street and big banks should suffer the imposition of having to pay at least $1 trillion dollars to those in poverty, those unemployed, those counting on social security, and those who were ripped off by their white-collar criminal conduct.

No human being needs to make more than a million dollars a year. No one needs more than $100 Million fortunes. There is no use for exorbitant private wealth. Reagan was WRONG. Money doesn't "trickle down". These bastards are hoarding it for themselves, not reinvesting it back into their communities.
Also make it that you cannot pass down more than $10 Million to your heirs. All the rest must go back. I know the rich cocksuckers will try to hide their wealth even more, but that's exactly why we need a more stringent IRS agency that makes it their agenda to close these loopholes.

No it won't . In America, at least, there is a huge, passive, stupid, helpless, frightened population, which has been brainwashed since Reagan to accept the inevitability of severe poverty, hunger, constant economic crises that hurt only people who are wage slaves, government inefficiency, irresponsibility and blatant corruption. Average (most)young people are more poorly educated than ever, and bred to breed in minimum wage jobs or, after ruinously expensive but partial 'higher education', better paying jobs that are insecure and increasingly less remunerative with fewer benefits, or simply to coast in 'upper level' poverty. They accept it as the way it is, the way it should be and there's always new corporate overwhelming propaganda to distract and confuse them. There's no way to organize such zombies.

Welfare was originally designed to help those who encountered extreme tragedy, such as the death of a wage earner. Now many parents, regardless of their economic status, are incapable of raising self-sufficient kids. Day care centers that teach life skills need to be available to all. Teachers and principals should be allowed to discipline all in a non-physical way.

All people should be guaranteed food, housing, and medical care. These things did not "destroy" the USSR. It should also be very hard to fire people. This idea that the key to everything is "hard work" is nonsense. Productivity improves, which means fewer people are needed every year to produce the same stuff, and thanks to media, nowhere is this more true than in services. It is childish magical thinking to assume that technology will always afford those laid off people something to do. We need a revolution in thinking in society.

I agree with and know the truth of [R49]. S/he will change nothing of course, the 'Net is addictive as are its various forums.
I also agree with . I think suicide should be available to everybody. Only reasonable restrictions should apply. Perhaps physically healthy people should be forty five to apply; they should be subject to reasonable examination and perhaps a waiting period but if found of sound mind, killed painlessly and quickly in a comfortable medical facility (or with a medical professional present and helping at home). I would have chosen to die at forty five, so long as it could have been under comfortable and painless circumstances (I am 60 now and regret my life every day and I suspect I am not alone).
Anyone of any age should be able to die with dignity and without pain if they are terminally ill, or afflicted chronically with an extremely painful condition. There would be choice, of course. Some who chose to live as long as possible regardless of pain or debility should have that right.
I would lower 's age for automatic or at least encouraged 'release' to 65. Again such a person could chose to live on, but after an examination of their health, likely life span 'naturally', their finances and likely stresses and suffering resulting from them, they should when the news is bad, be advised to end their lives surrounded by loved ones if any, painlessly. Life gets worse for average people, no matter what anyone says. Personal suicide attempts often fail, or result in damage.

Secondhand smoke is only dangerous if you're around it on a regular basis. A whiff of it may be annoying, but it's no more dangerous than many substances with which you come in contact all day long.
For that matter, you can't be "allergic" to secondhand smoke, though it can create respiratory problems in some individuals. Allergies involve the body reacting violently to the presence of certain proteins; there are no proteins in smoke. The same with perfumes and deodorants.
No one with peanut allergy has ever died from airborne peanut molecules. Rules on airplanes (no peanuts served, setting up "buffer zones" around rows where peanut allergic people are sitting) are in response to customer requests, not genuine medical issues.

Most life insurance policies have a contestability period. If a death occurs within a certain time frame - usually two years but can be between 1 and 3, depending on the state and type of policy - the insurance company can ask for more information or decline to pay.
That includes death by suicide. Some have suicide exclusions, though most states don't allow lifetime suicide exclusions, only that the contestability period apply for suicides, too.

In reality, JPII was busy going on his world adulation tour, butting into Polish politics, and spouting archaic right-wing ideologies instead of paying attention to real concerns (rampant pedophilia, for one). He undid any "liberal" progress (actual "Christ-like" love thy neighbor stuff) made during the time of John XXIII. His reign was twenty-six years of hype and despicable policies.

1. Using exposure (leaving an unwanted or sick infant outside to die) as a method of getting rid of problem babies is a good idea. It's not like they're really people until they reach about four months of age. The Greeks would use exposure with infants up to a year old. That seems a little extreme. But culling makes very good sense, and the cost of keeping the malformed and unwanted things alive is just not justifiable.
2. Undoubtedly owing to cultural rather than biological reason, a greater proportion of African Americans (and I'm biracial) than other groups are dishonest and irresponsible.
