It's also why our poorest state is wealthier than the UK on a per capita basis.

Not that I am calling you a liar, but I would love to see some statistics that show that, it sure doesn't sound correct.

Thank you for standing up and not posting that AC.

I know a "proper" caste system is wrong on several levels, but all too often there is a focus on the hardest to improve segment. We shouldn't be detracting from those with ability and resources by setting the bar where the kids with no love or help at home can reach for the general populous.

Abstinence from real time cable and a whole lot of missed commercials. Going on 5 years now. ~$16/month for Netflix and Hulu.

Sure there are some shows that I have seen adverts for that look cool, but I'm not forking out a premium cable subscription for 1-2 shows a month.

It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
