"In Washington, D.C. it costs $7,000 in city fees to open a pushcart. In California, up to eighty federal and state licenses are required to open a small business. In New York, a medallion to operate a taxicab costs $150,000. More than 700 occupations in the United States require a government license. Throughout the country, church soup kitchens for the homeless are being closed by departments of health. No wonder so many people turn to crime and violence to survive." ~ Jarret Wollstein
Hello there. I'm Madeline Smith, and I am a writer of daily life, love, wishes and mystifications. I'm entirely fascinated with the human being mind, the way it operates along with why. I can be the first to admit that there is still a great deal to learn, so much to comprehend in this thing all of us call everyday living. One mind can't grow without the strength of other minds. We are what we are today because of individuals within our past. Their particular achievements, as well as failures, has drastically contributed to our drive and ground breaking intelligence. This is precisely why I enjoy writing so much, because it allows me to share with you my knowledge and encounters with others in expectations to fill in the gap of uncertainness in some manner.
