America has no functioning democracy

This is really sick. Someone emailed me:
Money is the modern 21st Century American deity? What kind of society are we living in? I think Jimmy Carter is onto something. First time I have agreed with Mr. Carter in years. Flex is the key. Many things are changing... forever, not for better.

Forbes ::: "Every day we must remember that the vitality of our democratic system depends on us – Americans’ active engagement –" to which I will add American mainstream media seems hell-bent on distracting the public away from what the Obama administration is doing by grass-feeding the sheeple with Trayvon, Zimmerman and the Rolling Stone cover.

Another thing: Are you a "victim" of "stagnant pay"? I remember the days when employers freely dispensed OT and gave holiday bonuses. Those times have passed. "Stagnant Pay" is mentioned in a Politico article about student loan debt (don't get me going on that!)

Oh and by the way: take THAT, Rolling Stone!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
