Dear followers, as we approach this Holiday season, during this time of reflection and hope, I’d like to ask your opinion. If you’ve logged onto my word press site or merely followed me around, where do you think I belong on the political spectrum? Join me in conversation.
Have you read the news lately? Obama has just released $10 Million to several States to create good paying jobs to enable food stamp recipients to get off ” the Public trough”. While that’s admirable, I wonder, why do we become conscious of the waste in this system and not look at the wasted money going to Big Agra , the folks who produce nothing and get the big bucks? These folks, literally have gotten a free ride on the backs of the poor and middle class, yet their supportive enabling program is sacred. Why? Why do we only shine a light on the poor? Their misuse of the “food stamp program”, is 1% according to the New York Times. Yet the poor , not those subsidized by the Middle Class, are scrutinized as a group and condemned as parasites.
Parasites indeed! Why not Stop the Farm Subsidy dole and enact more programs to help the Middle Class reclaim their stake in America. It’s a thought when Politics effects us.
We hear but we don’t listen. Bibi NETANYAHU won an overwhelming majority in the Israeli elections. Herzog and the left have an opportunity to become a vocal opposition. Bibi stated there would be no Palestinian State until there was peaceful cooperation between their two peoples. Sounds reasonable to me. The Arab platforms , vying for Knesset seats, representing 400,000 ARABS and minorities, won big time based on a platform of moderation. The Arab minority, just like Israel’s left, want to place the Economy first. They are no longer concerned with bombastic rhetoric, they want jobs and peaceful coexistence.
- We should be fearful that too big to fail has gotten bigger.
- We should be scared that big business and big Agra get tax breaks and subsidies as young people seek entrepreneurial jobs, because there is no place for them in the corporate world.
- We should be scared as we continue to subsidize fossil fuels at the expense of clean energy.
- We should be scared that $1 trillion in student loan debt exists.
- We should be scared that credit card debt and car loans may be the next bubble.

- So it’s not diplomacy driving our Country towards any deal with Iran, it’s all about the money, like most of our entrenched ideologies.
Dear Sn. Schumer and Sn. Gillrand: How can you help these young people? Thanks for your response.
Last weekend I attended a forum for Entrepreneurs at the NYU Stern School of Business . The Keynote speaker was Jonathan Wolfson, the CEO of Solarzyme, Inc. His company has been working on algae based energy and bio fuels for 13 yrs. As part of his strategy, he’s changed his product line to meet the needs of his investors and customers. Though his first love is alternative clean energy, he has not been licensed in America to produce this product. Flexibility, spanning 13 years , has been the “key” to his success! The “pay off”, Goldman Sachs became his investment partner!
Next year he will be opening a Plant in Brazil. When I asked, ” why not here”, he stated, he could not qualify for American grants or funding for his products. Brazil’s sugar beet farms, will provide the environment he needs for manufacturing his product. More…

First it was cigarettes, then it was fossil fuels and now it’s going to be the Banking industry whitewashing the facts to protect themselves from Regulatory change. We are dealing with slick con men, donning a look of compassion, while they conceal their true selves behind their
