It comes as no surprise to me that simple neighborhood networking and cooperative projects (Family Independence Initiative) incentive-ize and facilitate upward mobility, and cost-effectively reduce public service budget burdens. However, the urgent need for wide-area connection and real-time responsiveness (matching grants, training, SBA loans, insurance, etc.) is desperate, while it seems to me that the importance of public-private enterprise has been undermined by an extreme libertarian doctrine masquerading as "free" marketeer-ing. After the poverty programs of the previous decade lifted a significant percentage of those disenfranchised before the programs existed, mechanisms and processes have rusted and been corrupted, I argue, and now they lag behind demographic changes and have proved sadly ineffective against unanticipated economic crisis. Nevertheless, diminished capacity to lift hindrances, insure security (SSI) and defend rights of the greater number in deference to the unscrupulous privilegium (as demanded by the political right-wing) is, to be sure, a despicable policy.

fire and rainstorm are forces feeding budding recovery (reconstruction) and reinforced middle-class security (Affordable Care Act), might find flowering gardens of commerce if the good ground is tilled and tended and the fertilizer kept degradable [?]

after vacation and the Olympics, after school term begins and before new year the debt limit (Republican Elba), Bush tax-cut sunset (earned income credit?) and triggers (deficit reduction) will summarize a fruitful administration despite frantic opposition and distraction - but will better senses gist be got? workforce productivity (supply) is high and demand/consumption (labor - value) is low but economic glut feeds upon the suasible and weary.

racial profiling because of the criminal propensity of young men in communities of color results from imagining gone askew (historically), defining all criminality as arising from urban enclaves and the psychological dispositions therein - as if congenital and unmanageable - which seems at odds with our rightly optimistic vision of youthfulness in general. The "young" nation enters its mid-life? private prison system [?]

This week, leaders from around the world are meeting in Paris to work out the future of global climate action.

But, while our President is overseas trying to come up with climate solutions, Republicans back in the states are undermining him at every turn. And, their typical obstruction could pose a threat to the entire Paris summit.
