Check out this clever video from Hothouse Productions which asks kids to describe what a mathematician and baker are like based on their descriptions.

These kids are adorable though and their answers and insightful. Check it out!

lol. And what does a lobbyist look like? Usually greedy, mongering rich people who buy and get bought by politicians, right?

Well, I have my own cause. I am a home care worker by trade. I make less than $10.00/hr, and I can't buy politicians, I don't have enough money for me and my family, much less to do that. I refuse to get paid to be a drone.

I speak for the abused children, who have no money, because they're minors, and the parents are not going to allow their abused to have any money anyway. So what do I get out of this? Satisfaction that I am the voice for the voiceless, meek underdogs who can't do for themselves.

Darren, ".......the common denominator lies within humans." Exactly. If religion were gone they would…

People putting up religious symbols because they like them and think they're significant is tiresome.…
