This isn’t about skepticism, however; it’s about ironies and outrages. In 2010, corporate profits grew at their fastest rate since 1950, and we set records in the number of Americans on food stamps. The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all American households combined, the effective tax rate on the nation’s richest people has fallen by about half in the last 20 years, and General Electric paid zero dollars in U.S. taxes on profits of more than $14 billion. Meanwhile, roughly 45 million Americans spend a third of their posttax income on food — and still run out monthly — and one in four kids goes to bed hungry at least some of the time.
I guess the saying ignorance is bliss goes out the door. Being a child no longer means being sheilded by blatant acts of greed and stupidity by adults. Sad.

I would like to add while children are having to skip meals or plain not eating we send money over sea's in the form of foreign aid at a break neck pace.....
