"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I just have a couple of issues to talk and ask about-
I keep hearing how Obama's yearly budget is so outlandishly high. The way I understand it, almost all of the yearly budget increases are due to the fact that we are now paying for the wars and other things. Is this true? If it isn't true what has enlarged it. If it is true, why in the world doesn't the democratic party get it out to the public better?
Just a thought I've been having - I see all the craziness of the right wing and extremists of all stripe, even global warming and the increasing disconnect between the rich and starving. I see all this as humanity emerging from childhood. Or even full into puberty (starting with things like the magna carta and the constitution). This analogy of a human life to the human race comes in very handy, it was used extensively by the original masters of science fiction and I think comparisons are very interesting. Does this need expanded on?
I love the show. You guys do a great job of cutting through to the real issues. I've watched them all for months on dish and being a 52 yr old disabled (by poor surgery) white guy that's watched this country go downhill since Reagan, you really do a great job talking about the important things from a logical and liberal standpoint. Thank you.
