money crush

While the so called rich alleviate their conscience, and tease the poor with pathetic little handouts knowing these people will just go back to the rubbish dump's to scratch for food in country that doesn't know the meaning of caring for their fellow man, the circus turns sour and the poor get trampled under foot.

At least 23 people were crushed to death today when residents of an eastern Indonesia town surged forward while waiting for 40,000 rupiah (£2) handouts from a rich family in an annual tradition, officials said.

The handouts were part of charity events marking the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan in the town of Pasuran, nearly 800km east of the capital, said local police chief Harry Sitompul.

Television footage showed women screaming as they were pushed into a fence by the crowd outside a home in Pasuran. At least 23 people were killed and at least eight others were in a critical condition.
Why does their god hate them?

The precepts of social decorum as we understand them, of the preservation of external decency, were consciously set by Lord Chesterfield, who was looking for a translation of les moeurs: "Manners are too little, morals are too much." The word decorum survives in Chesterfield's severely reduced form as an element of etiquette: the prescribed limits of appropriate social behavior within a set situation. I'm quite sure he has not read Lord Chesterfield's work and properly thinks he invented cigarettes.
