Easy for a Camel ?

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God - yeah right!

From a very young age, I suspected the above quote. I also was suspicious regarding "but the humble will inherit the earth."

Why - seemed like a great way of discouraging change and/or innovation in a closed system.

I have lately seen a plethora of online articles purporting to sing the values of family togetherness, enjoying the recession and making do with less (the recession has helped family time). I agree that family is good but the latest articles strike me a bit as propaganda.

It appears that the powers that be are shifting responsibility from the corporations and government onto the individual - who is going to shafted for a disproportionate piece of the pie. And that is not right.

Not reported in the MSM is real poverty- means making decisions regarding what you are going to eat that day (and in the US what medications you will use) - not whether you can afford camping versus a cottage. And I'm wondering why all these stories are coming out now.

Sorry but lets look at the stats. Less income means lower health care outcomes, lower education and more crime. The humble do not inherit the earth.

The fact that certain main stream media outlets are promoting this meme (story) in the new economic reality bothers me a lot.
