California Fires, Capitalism 

Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Gerard Butler's house burnt down, making headlines. One of dozens of houses they have or could buy in a heartbeat with their many millions of dollars.

Meanwhile exploited agriculture laborers and prisoners *putting out the fires* have to work for criminally low wages risking their life, cause they don't make enough to afford to not work.

Fuck capitalism.

Fixing the prison system _and_ fighting fires? IMPOSSIBLE! (muh 80M$ ?!?)
