SHARE Thursday, September 25, 2008 Trickle Up Poverty and the Paulson Railroad
The scare tactics that railroad decision makers into instant action with no time for responsible discussion are the way that the Patriot Act was passed. It's the method of a huckster.

If you listen closely, you might hear a sad death knell in the distance, and it isn't for the Palestinians. What we may be witnessing now is Israel's slow motion suicide.
SHARE Monday, February 23, 2009 The Stimulus and The Confidence Game
Forget the stop-gap teensy tax cut drivel and permanently eliminate the payroll tax on everyone making less than $75,000 a year as well as on the vulnerable small businesses that provide so many jobs.
