The same thing killed the economies of a lot of smaller cities. When my parents were kids, suburban people routinely took the trolley downtown to shop. The center of the city WAS the mall, with large department stores and lots of specialty shops. Over time, crime rose, taxes rose, and the city experienced several riots. And suddenly nobody wanted to go near the city. Shopping malls sprang up as a cheaper and safer alternatives to downtown shopping, and downtown businesses went under.
Sadly, you simply cannot provide the medical services in this country that you can in the third world. If these charities opened free clinics here in America, the cost of insurance and litigation would bankrupt them. In the third world, you can help a penniless man dying in the street and there is nothing lost if you fail. In America, that penniless man is millions of dollars of potential liability. Helping him and failing could ruin your life.
"Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words—go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet." There comes a point when a people are no longer open to receiving what you have to give. It's possible that this country may simply be at that point.
"You could get the kiosk and the stupid burger machine and still have more than enough work for those 5 people." Huh? 5 people do a variety of jobs. Take one of those jobs away, and the variety can now be done by 4 people. It doesn't matter that the machines can't do *every* job. They are still replacing man-hours of labor that can now be cut from the schedule.

"What if you were allowed to vote only because it didn't make a difference? What if no matter how you voted the elites always got their way?" You mean like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLJZWNfd47U

Bush, Nixon worse than Carter?!? People sure have short memories.
"the only people it keeps from gaining access to lawfully provided firearms are the impoverished and disadvantaged" That is the segment who votes for these morons. It's only fair that they should suffer the consequences of their decisions.
Your are being intentionally dense. The topic of this article is government forcing the religious to participate in same sex marriage. And you jump in and claim it has nothing to do with religion. You are a liar.

Does Hillary Clinton Take Us for Idiots?

Does Hillary Clinton Take Us for Idiots? She has seen Americans elect and re-elect her husband, elect and re-elect O, and vote for her in the primary. That do you think?
