The concept of Equality has been conveniently adopted over and over by many causes that had nothing to do with Equality. Recently, the media has confused this concept by leveling Equality with the right for same sex marriage. In the past instead it was confused with everyone’s right to have an equal amount of wealth. Still, Equality is something else. Although many people want to pursue this ideal much confusion makes it much too blurry to materialize. It is not possible to Respect a concept that is not understood. For Equality to spread all over, it would take a Plan based on the most solid principles and one strategy led by a new and clear definition of the concept of Equality. The journey toward Equality would be like entering a labyrinth with the confidence to find the way out because of one compass that will help us to navigate and to reach the destination. Wavevolution offers that compass to navigate in that labyrinth which is our reality. Like in a "domino effect" the doors will open one after another and a mirrored light will show the exit.
Please don't perpetuate rumors; that's only a step above the local blat's scribe who starts them.

They look like good guys to me when compared to the field of republican contenders.
Not just do they get paid big bucks to raid the middle class, they also have prime health coverage, courtesy of the tax payer. Jet they don't want the average person to be insured, they don't want unemployed people to get any support.
These hoodlums are nothing but pundits to the super rich aristocracy. Billions are being spent to spy on everybody and everything, but there is no money for education, health care, the environment, infrastructure...
Keep education levels low, cause uneducated people are easily snowed and keep electing their own hangmen.
For a gym that represents a nationally known climbing equipment company, it needs to reassess what it's offering people for the price. -For a place to where people go to work out, water isn't readily and freely available. The one water fountain in the actual gym area has such poor pressure that you have to practically kiss the faucet. You certainly can't fill a water bottle. It seems if you want water, bring money and prepare to pay the water dispenser. -The layout of the building is such that an area to the immediate right of the entrance appears to be a climbing wall. There's texturized wall, bolt holes, and placement for top rope. Unfortunately in the time I've been coming here, I have yet to see it be used as a climbing area. It seems that they've placed weightlifting and work out equipment haphazardly through out this area. There isn't any climbing in this section, and the pieces of sub par equipment don't provide a more unique climbing gym experience .Rather, it seems to reflect a lack of focus when it comes to use of space and what people (climbers, I assume) are paying for. When their webpage proclaims 6500 sq ft of climbing, keep this space in mind.-And the routes aren't well maintained. The floor is littered with scraps of tape from routes that aren't even two weeks old. I'm not sure if the counter person is allowed to leave the desk, but I bet if he spent 15 minutes checking routes and replacing tape instead of dabbling on his ipad, it would make for a better experience.Having visited other northwest climbing walls (PRG and Circuit in Portland, Crux in Eugene, Stone Garden in Seattle, The Edge in Vancouver BC) I cant see how they can the same price or more expensive then these other gyms. It's worth it to look at these other gyms websites and ask yourself if Asana could do better for the amount of money they're asking for.TL;DR- Asanas space isn't used well, the routes aren't well maintained, and getting a drink of water can be a pain in the butt. They should know better.
This is cute, but a huge number of Americans consuming unhealthy diets do so because they live in food deserts where produce and unprocessed staples are either unavailable or a damn sight more than $1.50 extra per day.
Good for Latin America.
If the controllers have Hellary in mind for 2016 then they plan to have her ride the horse to the ground.
This will undoubtedly lead to a long gap until there's a similar gender president.

So where do the wealthy unhappy people go to ski and recreate?
The real definition of inflation is an increase in the volume of money and credit relative to goods and services.
When the volume of money and credit rises relative to the volume of goods available, the relative value of each unit of money falls, making prices for goods generally rise.
A business like McDonalds, deciding to raise its prices, does not cause inflation.
Raising prices will have its effects, however, in that some previous customers will refuse to pay the increased prices and some potential customers will refuse to become customers.
The buying decisions made by the customers will contribute to the business decisions made by the business owner.
And here's the rub:
Customers of fast food businesses want to pay low prices for the goods they receive.
(Note: the prices should be low, since the quality of the 'food' is low)
If they were willing to pay higher prices the business owners wouldn't hesitate to oblige them.
Unfortunately for the workers of these businesses, the low price demand of the customers coupled with high unemployment (which the owners prefer) , means that their wages will stay low, or their workload will increase, or they may get laid off, or the business may close.
The customers are the key here.
If they were interested in assisting the workers in receiving higher wages, they would support businesses that pay their workers more.
It's clear that this isn't their priority.
They're more interested in quantity than quality and more interested in cheap prices for goods than the workers being paid a living wage.
If this wasn't true, then the average consumer in the US wouldn't be purchasing so much cheap, marginal quality, goods, made by extremely low paid, abused workers in China, India and in other third world countries.
What goes around comes around.
Articles such as John's help spread the word.
With the following comments I don't mean to refute the article or anyone's comments, just offer my view on some data / facts / observations as food for thought.
DATA - Addition to the article's data:
... The majority of free-market countries implemented universal health care between 1883 and 1972. None of them have medical-related bankruptcies. Their average cost per person is 40% of the United States cost per person.
POLITICS - The topic of getting health care for all, universal health care, has absolutely nothing to do with the two major political parties. Neither party has a party platform that supports the establishment of universal health care, Improved Medicare for All. This topic of getting it is entirely in the hands of ordinary, average citizens in a united manner with unified (same) actions.
JOBS - Universal health care will help our economy be more globally competitive. The end result will be establish a basis for establishing (and recovering) more jobs and better jobs.
I looked up one time, quite some months ago, how many tens of thousands of Americans work directly for health insurance companies, much less those who work indirectly for health insurance companies. Although I don't immediately find the results of that research on my computer, I do recall it's a mighty big number. And I very distinctly recall those one-on-one interactions with individual American adults when I drove to Ohio two different years: one perhaps around roughly 2003 and the other around perhaps 2009. Each person was rather emotionally distraught about the topic of people losing their jobs.
BENEFITS - My experience with #3 causes me to not communicate nothing about the evils of the so-called parasitic health insurance companies. I prefer to communicate the fantastic benefits of universal health care, Improved Medicare for All, which will be the best universal health care in the world and provide these overall benefits:
....... Health care for all without the unnecessary hardships.
....... A stronger economy from less bureaucracy.
....... Better health from excellent health care access.
....... More freedoms for health care and life choices.

As usual these statistics are cooked.
If it makes you feel better believe the fantasy.
Reality has a way of breaking through eventually anyway.
"Obamacare is Obama's Gettysburg, that's what."
Bill, there is something to this idea.
Contrary to revised history, in both cases, the Commander in Chief and the Administrator in Chief are acting in line with the interests of the Business Class Elite.
Lincoln was following the direction of the Northern Business elite who wanted economic expansion into the South-with free land, free labor, a controllable market, a high protective tariff for manufacturers, and banking control.
This is still going on today, but now it's global.
Lincoln stated in his first Inaugural Address, in 1861:
"I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
The real reason for prosecuting the war was to keep the Union together and both prevent the South from trading with Britain while opening up the South to the unbridled expansion of Northern Business Elites.
Lincoln only added Abolition to the goals of the war when the increasing pressure from the abolitionists threatened the coalition supporting him.
As for Obama, like Lincoln he is following the direction of the Business Class Elite by in this case forcing the public to open their wallets and give the Insurance/Medical Cartel virtually an unbridled ability to expand their profits.
In this case Obama has used the plight of the poor as the excuse to allow the Business Class to fleece the public.
Lincoln, even if he wanted to at the beginning, couldn't use the plight of the blacks to push war on the South, since racism was as entrenched in the North as Slavery was in the South.
Most northerners did not care enough about slavery to make sacrifices for it, certainly not the sacrifice of war.
So Lincoln's original strategy was to force the South to secede through a shipping blockade and other tactics, thus creating enough justification for public support.
The slavery card was used later in the game.
Obama actually has an edge in the game he's playing out for the Business Class.
He's even got some ersatz resistance being performed by the other half of the Business Party.
This is just the same Con Game being played over and over again.
Very good John!
I've had similar thoughts when I gaze at these local monuments to disease and theft.
One has to wonder what those saints would say if they saw the wealth extraction perpetrated by the medical/insurance cartel, not to mention a bankster cartel with the gall to name itself Zion.
Kudos to you for describing this evil exactly as it is.
And the un-affordable Care Act is, as you say, a giveaway to the insurance companies, who, don't forget, donated massively to the current puppet's recent election.
Neither the medical cartel nor the insurance parasites are the least bit interested in preventive health care.
Follow the Money!
The big money is in disease, not health.
John, you obviously understand that:
All that needs to happen for evil to triumph is for good men & women to do nothing!
Keep it up. You're not alone.
