RR if you have food in your belly, clothes on your back and a roof over your head then you have enough, try sharing with others, one world, one people.
There you go "deciding" again.
The United States has shown the world what prosperity looks like. It is up to them to implement it. It is better to teach someone to fish, than to give them a fish.
The last person in the United States that starved to death was Terri Shiavo, and that was a court-ordered starvation.

Given the toxic nature of most industry and the unsustainable use of raw resource over recylcable goods, etc., consumerism is a threat to the health of the planet. Not so much the health of the planet, as it will survive long after we are extinct, but a threat to a hospitable environment for humans.
In addition relying on corporate logos and products for validation detracts from the integrity of the spiritual aspect of being. There's a great deal of money spent of deciding how best to manipulate the consumer and it comes to a roaring head of a infected pimple at Christmas.
You have voted clearwater for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have used all of your votes for this month.

Remember where the Christmas came from. YULE To celebrate the shortest day and the sun coming back and not the birth of one man who was suppose to save people.
Yule was stolen from us by the organised church.

Christmas, although named for Christ, is mostly a package of pagan practices and has less and less to do about Christ than it does about human selfishness. To those who make it about spending time with family and helping other, I commend you. You cannot put a price tag on that.
