    "A foundation in Germany has analyzed the social justice records of all 31 members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), ranking each nation in such categories as health care, income inequality, pre-school education, and child poverty.

    "The overall performance by the United States — which boasts of being an egalitarian society — outranks only Greece, Chile, Mexico, and Turkey.

    "Actually, three of those countries performed better than ours in the education of pre-schoolers, and Greece did better than the United States on the prevention of poverty."

    Another example of the economic and political inequality built into this system that won't change by "choosing" between Mitt and Mutt next November.

    Good. I'd like to see us lower but it's a start.

    Lower?

    40% of all births in the US have only one parent in the house.

    How much further into the abyss must we sink?

    It's a call to stop "choosing" between candidates pre-selected by the 1%, of the 1%, and for the 1%.

    So far I am leaning write in. The only hope the GOP has of drawing my vote is if Boehner and company get tough on the deficit and debt.

    We know the GOP doesnt have the stones so there you go.

    I didn't say I'd like to see more one parent households. 'Social Justice' is just a re-branding of 'socialism'. It has been re-branded to make it more palatable to those of us who value freedom.

    'Social Justice' can kiss my ass.

    Move to Mexico.
    Take Mitt and Mutt with you.
    Good riddance.

    I dont disagree per say.

    I just took the conversation to the heart of social engineering. A point that shows there can never be justice.

    I live in the UK, you fucking moron. I don't need to 'move' anywhere. I live in a country that values 'social justice'... and you know what? They're in the fucking tank.

    Stop fucking whining.
