Although the chart above is certainly a list of important things to those of us who are green ("greenies" as David K. affectionately calls us), there could be other lists generated by serious people of other persuasions.

The oligarchy that really runs this country wants a populace that is dumbed-down and apathetic. With our eyes off what really matters, guess who runs the show?
Have a Happy 4th of July weekend.
