Jill Stanek’s blog featured some Aggie News, relating equine behavioral and biological phenomena to the abortion issue. Pharmer, being Pharmer, can’t pass up such hot issues as animal husbandry (that’s breeding livestock …ok.)
The United States is at a cross roads. Some of our representatives have gotten a hold of this idea. They have correctly recognized that social issues and economic issues of the United States are intertwined, and that the social issues have to be addressed in order for the economic issues to be resolved.
This is the reason:
The Advance of Human Civilization is fueled by the desire to alleviate human suffering and human need.
If the suffering and need are concealed or erased by killing the victims, there will be no advancement.
We can see this already happening in the countries with socialized medicine. They have decided to stop treatment, and/or kill off those who have too many difficulties, or whose existence is not seen as profitable for the society as a whole. You can see what has happened to their capacities for medical and others scientific innovation. Which country still fosters the most scientific advancement, so that the most gifted people of the world flock here in order to accomplish their aims? It is still U.S.
If we decide to kill people because they have unmet needs, we will cease to advance as a civilization. All sorts of innovations will grind to a halt. We will enter a prolonged depression and dark age.
Listen to the likes of Bachmann, Palin, Cain, West, and the ones who came before them. They have a gut understanding of the main point, given above, though they might not be able to express it in as few words.
These people have the charisma to convey a more hopeful future for humanity, and lead others to it.
This one is from Bellaire, Ohio…. where a morbidly obese man had become fused to his chair, in a matrix of his skin, feces, urine and maggots.
His girlfriend had undertaken to feed him by hand since he had become too big to leave the chair. The man apparently refused to accept medical help for an arthritic condition in his knees which had made it impossible for him to ambulate.
The individual, yet to be named was finally found unconscious by his girlfriend and was transported to a hospital in Wheeling, West Virginia where he later died.
Orlando Sentinel reporter Scott Powers was designated as the pool reporter to cover a Biden Fundraiser at Alan Ginsberg’s “Winter Park” house in Florida.
The reporter was confined to a closet by Biden staffers during most of the event to keep him from mingling with the guests, and was only let out to hear Biden’s prepared remarks. He was then confined back to the closet.
Jeffrey Immelt has a special position as Obama’s Liaison to the Business Community, and as Chairman of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
Immelt’s Company, General Electric is numero uno among U.S. corporations in Tax Avoidance. Their net payout on (5 billion in profit) to the IRS is Zero.
The company has managed to balance it’s financial statements of profit from the U.S. and abroad so as to be paying zero U.S. taxes.
These kinds of strategies are out of reach for normal U.S. taxpayers, and of course we are not serving on Obama’s special committees. So we do not have most favored Tax Status. Ronald Reagan had noticed such outsized advantages for large corporations and eliminated many loopholes, while drastically lowering the tax rates for everyone. In succeeding decades the large entities regained much of their preferential tax advantages.
In the last 8 years, GE has reduced US employment by 20 percent and has increased overseas employment. Cumulative overseas profits have increased from $15 billion to $92 billion in that period. Declaring profits in countries with much lower taxes than the U.S. is highly beneficial to the bottom line
