Just a thought

I was back at Res. House today. Truly the homeless ones are (mostly) so precious. “They” could be any one of us. Many folks are but one or two pay cheques away from homelessness.

Orlando, James and Ben will join me here for lunch on Thursday (23rd). I am already brewing the fish soup.

I have some questions.

1) If Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama because they are both Black Americans (as some have said) ; are all the Caucasian endorsements of John McSame because he is a White American?

2) Why is the Right wing attacking Senator Obama, because he believes that wealth should be distributed in favour of poorer people?

Have not the Presidents since Ronald Wilson Reagan viz:-

40 Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1981-89 (Republican)
41 George Herbert Walker Bush, 1989-1993 (Republican)
42 William Jefferson Clinton, 1993- 2001(Democrat)
43 George W. Bush, 2001- 2009 (Republican)

Redistributed wealth in favour of richer people?

Just a thought.

  1. Michael,

    Your post points to the abject failure of wealth to "trickle down." It turns out that the formulation was a political trick to make the greed seem somehow noble. Like its twin compassionate conservative, it has shown itself to be a bald faced lie aimed at getting votes, pure and simple. Commentators on the right are trying to deflect attention from these facts. It is good that you keep them right before our noses. Thanks.
