Last week on Tom's show

Last week on Tom's show I heard callers comparing the trajic shooting in Florida with a burning of a brave young man supposedly by two African Americans. I did some research and found the original news cast. I'm including the link to the real story.

But this doesn’t there won’t be dead trees available to fuel electrical generators because there will be.  Many species of trees will die in the heat waves Obama’s inaction on Climate Change has brought us.  These dead trees will invariably be finessed into the definition of “waste wood” by politically powerful utilities like Domtar\WE Energies in Rothschild, Wisconsin and elsewh

obama’s “my son” comment regarding Trayvon’s tragic slaying was a distasteful attempt at redirecting Public emotion to support his campaign.

Don’t politicize people’s deaths – don’t even get close to it.  Their lives amounted to more than offering someone else, even the president, a tasteless opportunity to try to manipulate public sentiment.

A Capital Idea Part 113: A Model for Progress

I think I may be nearing the end of my capital ideas blog post series. I say I think I may be nearing its end, because new topics keep popping up. I want to endeavor in this post and the next few most likely, to discuss how to build a lasting social model for continuous progress in the economic and political realms.
