What intolerance!

What intolerance! And clearly this relates to the US, but be grateful that only in the US is there still the 18th century belief that poverty is self-inflicted.

Having said that, all those who subscribe to such mean-spirited judgements should remember that pretty much every one of us has had one or twenty or a hundred ancestors who would have fitted this category and yet who made their way beyond it and laid the foundation for a better life for all of us because there were enough people out there who did not think in this intolerant, mean-spirited, judgemental and vindictive way.

A little bit of understanding, compassion and plain old-fashioned kindness goes a very long way.
