    We are paying too many people to ignore their responsibilities.
     -- John C. Davidson, Mount Vernon, Oh     
    A three fold cord is not soon broken. The money changers broke the back. Paying for protection becomes persecution with an underlying motive. The " middle " lifts the bottom to service the top, while serving itself as an independent. Many, many have the ability and are inclined to take up the trades when available. But if taught by an independent, they become rebellious, when the extra burden of the governing powers becomes apparent at the price of their back. Seen early on, one comes to understand where values originate. It is the morally independent, that they seek to destroy, that influences the mass rather than seclusion for itself. John C. Davidson it is a rigged game ! Seen very clearly from the inside out ! Since when does a government dictate morality ?
