I really wonder if some people understand the idea of having enough.
There is a documentary out there about the richest building in America on Park Avenue, NYC only really about 100 blocks away from some of the poorest communities in America in the South Bronx which includes the same Park Avenue.
How much do you need?
I admire the Bill Gates and Warren Buffets of the world who work for positive change. I wonder if Trumpcare passes that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will start to have a lot more projects in America.
Do you need to have millions uninsured for some more profits? Do you need to have people with preexisting conditions go into bankruptcy for medical conditions again and again? Or die young.
This is a rich country with incredibly rich people and corporate welfare. If you doubt it see sports stadiums and the politics of leaving cities.

May we have a saner tomorrow.
