trash we all pick up by StareDecisis trash we all pick up by StareDecisis
Sorta a series I guess you could say. This is inspired by the greed in this world, or perhaps just America. I find it sorta sad that America has alot of money whereas other countries maybe do not so. There is poverty in America and with this President it has much more chances of becoming even more prevailent. Working at the grocery store has taught me so much about humanity and moneys coexistence. I am sadly a penny collector. Pennies can add up. I am cheap because I sorta have to be. I am not rich. Many people leave their change after buying groceries, especially pennies, they do not care about the small change. Only problem is they put that money right back into the corporate grocery store. All the change adds up! But when it comes to big bills they want it all.
Other people, homeless, hungry, or third world countries, would love those added up pennies. Ask any guy standing their with a cup downtown begging for "change"
But when it comes to big bills we all get greedy. Money is what runs the world. Big money runs the people.

money money money...personally i hate it, but in todays world its a necessary evil. People dont even believe you when you tell them that you dont care about money!!!
Its become as default as breathing...pretty sad

Well thing is because in a sense we all do care about money. Take a look at if you had none what so ever...You might care about it then. Or at least not take it for granted when you happen to come upon some. We all use money, more than we should. I wish we didn't but its a sad fact. In the US we are sold the belief that the more NEW products you buy the happier you will be, the less bored you will be. But it creates a cycle, because there is always something new!!! I just wish the gov't and the corporations that support it were not so greedy. They could stop spending money on sending troops to god knows where searching for god knows what, and start sending money to AIDS funds they promised or schools that are left behind. And they can stop petitioning to lower taxes for the rich and give it to the dAmn homeless. :movingon: I get angry thinking about it, so best to keep this semi short.
I am glad you like the photo, I really appreciate the fav:D Always good to see like minded people around!

Hmm, thing is money is a subject that we could discuss from hours and hours. The problem lies withen us, do we have the courage to give up all worldly things we pocess? NO, its just that it sounds good when someone says that "One person can start a revolution", but i have kind of given hope on it actually hapenning in todays time. Things and people dont change, somehow i just cant figure how how people dont realize that all this technology and money and inventions we make dont do us any good, come to think of it, we have internet and space probs on Mars and we have people dying in Africa of hunger...just does not make sence.

exactly. Well put. I find it ironic that the country with the most money will lend its armies but won't lend its cash flow. Yeah we can but into peoples business when we feel it is convenient but we can't if its only convenient for them. Sad world. It does take one to start...but it s very hard to get a flow going...people are generally lazy, and I am not one to talk.

I like to collect up the change people leave and put it in a donation tin :D

I love the concept behind this photo, and well the photo itself is stunning! There isnt really anything more I can add to it haha, because you have said it all so eloquently with your picture! Great job! My only complaint perhaps is that it is a little close to the right hand border... :D But that is insignificant!!
StareDecisis Featured By Owner May 24, 2005
I know, I wish is was cut off a little bit differently on the border, but in the end I just kept it. I actually just ordered a print to see it in a 14by8 or whatever the size is, and it actually turned out pretty cool. Although In a bigger print, the space looks like it should have text, something pertaining to poverty or something. I appreciate the fav and the kind comments and critique!
