Evaluating Our Values

What does it say about the wealthiest nation on earth that

So far in 2004, 35 percent of Americans have had to choose between food and rent, while 28 percent had to choose between medical care and food. Others, forced to stretch their budgets ever further, are buying less expensive but often less nutritious food.?

What does it say about the values of a people willing to spend $150 billion dollars on a war of choice while estimated 13 million children are living in households that are forced to skip meals or eat less due to economic constraints.?

What does it say about an economic system when the laborers whose job it is to put cheap produce on the tables of others, go to bed hungry and cold in substandard housing often within sight and smell of the bounty in the fields they labor in?

Values anyone?
