Don't try to tell me people are poor because they're lazy. This guy teetered and leaned into a dumpster pulling out aluminum cans, market price about 25 cents/pound, less than a penny per can. When's the last time you worked that hard for so little return? Times are hard, the gap keeps growing, and Christian hypocrite scolds who confuse wealth with virtue shun the poor instead of helping them. With enough resources to satisfy all of humanity's needs, why are so many people sick, homeless, hungry? It's not because the poor are lazy; it's because the rich are greedy. It's a distribution problem, not an issue of scarcity.
