Let Love

Okay what shall we do to get a sing along going? Who wants to start the song? Let me try since everyone is so shy.

Is this a good song? How about one from Paul Simon? "Many the times I've been mistaken and many times confused and I've often felt forsaken and certainly misused, but I'm…

Tax Cuts

Regarding the Federal government- there is not a spending problem, there is a revenue problem.


Now that the rich received an extension of the tax cuts- Democrats must constatnly ask:


Where are the jobs? The living wage jobs? Now that the doubt of whether or not Tax Cuts would be extended is gone.


Where are the living wage jobs?- if they don't come soon - bye bye tax cuts.

Now that the Republican's have been granted their "tax-cut" for the rich, please all democrats constantly on all forms of media remind them of the following:WHERE ARE THE NEW JOBS RICH PEOPLE HAVE CREATED?



You see the problem is not that there is too much spending, the problem is that those making billions do not pay enormous taxes and they should.

A joyful path to criticism

There are many ways to apprehend the abuses our economic system inflicts upon all of us. One way will be explored as I discuss the feelings most American people place upon leisure and idleness. I will borrow much from the 19th century Philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche; in fact I will paraphrase from his aphorism named, "Leisure and idleness."

There is something of the American lust for gold and the breathless haste with which we work for monetary gain,…
