The Haves and the Have-Nots in Our Society

Society is basically groups of people. Some live together, others are co-workers, still others play together.

One of the things that hurts society in America is the huge financial gap between rich and poor. Something like 1% of America's population own and control 90% of America's wealth.

There are more 'have-nots' than 'haves' in the U.S. By far.

And the 'haves' want more.

Here's a good example. The NFL owners and players couldn't agree on a new collective bargaining agreement last week. And this is after two weeks of federal mediation.

In an internet interview, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson compared NFL owners treatment of players to 'modern-day slavery.'

Peterson, who is black, is set to make $10.72 million in base salary in 2011.

How many millions was that?

If that is slavery, sign me up.
