SHADOWS OVER THE GLOBE
150 years after our own awful history, civil war rages in north Africa and the middle east. We can't know the implication of regime change in these strategic regions, but we know there will be legacy affects.
The opening salvo of our conflict will be remembered today with somber music, and an explosive re-enactment of the Confederate bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor.
Remembering history is crucial to a republic and while reenactment helps demonstrate and can bring maps and moments of military battle to life, nothing can approximate the extraordinary pain in the loss of 600 thousand lives over the course of our 4 year struggle. Nor can it heal. With our memories comes residual resentment. Shadows still.
The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has analyzed the House Republican budget proposal
and reports the plan to cut corporate taxes and to lower the rates on high earners will result in a revenue loss of $ 2.9 Trillion. By the way, if the GOP plan succeeds the tax rate on the wealthiest Americans will be the lowest since 1931. Is this how to recover from a recession that was created by the greed of wealthy investment bankers and corporations who pay little or no taxes already? Sorry-this all seems like foggy logic.
