I have just read the toys list suggested by the major retailers for Christmas presents for children. In today's world I have a much better suggestion than toys that will be quickly outgrown or the children will quickly tire of: I think cash gifts that can be saved for the child's future education, home, or other necessary expenses will be appreciated much more especially as he/she matures and the reality of the cost of living sets in. We are already a society of wealthy or poor. Half the population does not make enough money to pay taxes above the amount already deducted from their pay. I think that filling a toybox for any reason in our society is irresponsible and certainly not in the best interests of the child. Until we start caring about ALL of the PEOPLE AGAIN the majority of Americans will never be able to buy a house,save for retirement, or even afford cars. Until we have the majority of Americans earning a proper living our economy will remain as it is. Most citizens will live their lives stressed out about money and ultimately be completely dependent upon Social Security during retirement. We need to stop supporting the privileged few and tae care of the majority of the people. It as aways been the middle class that has been the foundation of our financial well being. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT MINIMUM WAGES PAY THE MINIMUM EXPENSES AND ALLOW SOME SAVINGS! THAT WILL BE THE WAY OUT OF OUR FINANCIAL HOLE!!!
