That is very noble of these three multi-million-dollar corporations to be concerned with those less fortunate than they or those working for them, by trying to put food on someone else’s table. We commend these companies for their efforts and dedication. Congratulations!
However, we wonder if those executives who are locked up in their gold cages away from the reality of life remember the last time they visited that real world — the world “normal” everyday people live in.
We wonder if those good-hearted millionaires are aware of or realize that 14.5 percent of U.S. households — nearly 49 million Americans, including 15.9 million children — struggle to put food on the table every day.
We all know that the shelves in the grocery stores are packed with all kinds of food, so food is not a problem here, but the lack of money to buy these products IS a serious problem.
Maybe what we need to do… correction, not we, but those elected officials that were elected by the people to represent the people and speak for the masses — what they need to do… to start with, is to bring all those American companies that are operating in foreign countries back home.
Let’s not fool ourselves! Those companies are making two big mistakes at once; they are taking jobs from American citizens (not the illegals, as they want us to believe) and at the same time are exploiting the citizens of that other country by paying them the salaries that are normal there.
In the United States they have to pay $8.00 an hour (soon to be $10.10 an hour) and over there they may pay $8.00 a day, if that much, which is pretty close to slavery in the real world.
But we don’t want to be the ones spoiling their fun of acting all generous at any time; but we feel that if they want to show the world how generous they are, they might do it with their own money and not ask the public to pitch in because we believe that the American people already pitch in every time they visit any of their establishments — after all, the days when you can go to an “inexpensive” fast food
restaurant with $5.00 and get change back are gone.
Charity begins at home, people! Let’s stop playing Santa Claus to the rest of the world and start being generous right at home, to our families.
Once someone mentioned to us how generous Steve Wynn is, so we started digging and we found out that every employee in the casino mogul’s hotel-casino (at the time he only had one) was forced to donate money from every paycheck, and if they refused, they would be on the black list when it came to favors, promotions or commendations. Steve Wynn
was not the generous one — it was his employees.
It seems like the American people are sometimes misled by influential individuals in office or by business executives with big corporations
who, with the help of the mainstream media, may be creating an infatuation with begging for money.
We all are living in a fantasy world that our country is the world’s wealthiest nation when that is no longer the truth: there are babies
in the United States of America going to bed crying because they are hungry, children are going to school with holes in their shoes or
perhaps no shoes at all because their parents cannot afford them or even many other items that may be considered “extras” — and that is a
But not to us. We should only be ashamed of electing the wrong people to represent us; those in public office are the ones that should be
ashamed of themselves for not doing their job: that of representing the constituents who trusted them and elected them.
Now it is up to the public, the citizens of this great nation, the voters and constituents, to stop kissing up to these public officials and start electing people who could represent everyone better than those who are simply making public service a career to serve themselves, their families and their friends.
It is time to bring the United State back to its citizens and elect people who would not have a problem responding to those very citizens who elected them.
