    People used to barter their goods and services before money came along.

    thats right eggplant there has always been a payment system,money is just another form of barter

    Collen,I am assuming that "coon" must be an animal, were not allowed to eat people here (our native Australians are often referred to by that name)......shame really!

    We had coon one time. It was very gamy and very greasy and stringy, was more like a bad pot roast, lol

    There's always welfare and food banks if you have no money. 

    Something had to be the root of all evil!  

    Money is not the problem. Initiative is. Why shouldn't a hard working person enjoy the fruits of his labor? Some people settle for the minimums in life and then curse those that attempt to do or have more than just survive life. We will always have those who feel they are entitled to the same "things" their neighbor 's have without putting in the same effort their neighbor put into their success. Stop complaining and move your asses. The probability of success is directionally proportional to the effort one makes to accomplish a specific goal. Put nothing in, get nothing out.

    pythonlover, nice to meet you too (hopefully I don't offend with some of my ...well slightly racist answers, all tongue in cheek)

    It is very sad how our society revolves so much around it. :(
