Obamanation: “Instead of QE, the Fed Could Have Given $56,000 to Every Household in America”

Again, money trickles up in our nation’s banking system. If you want to give money to “Wall St” banks you can route it through Main St and it will trickle up. This, together with a gov’t assisted bankruptcy that would completely re-staff “troubled” banks (including board members and hopefully major stockholders), also could have been done with the $16 trillion in bail out cash that Obama helped distribute. But it didn’t happen that way under the Democrats.

abortion. a pragmatic, secular view

Abortion has become in many societies a pivotal issue which locks those who support equal rights with those who wish to control others by religious/ultra conservative principles.

Many Western cultures allow abortion by choice, while a few, largely Roman Catholic, it would appear, do not. In some countries, abortion clinics have been the victims of extreme violence. Women still die in the hands of back-street abortionists as they have no other reasonable choice.

Lawful Orders

After the killing of Kajiema Powell, the second man to die from police actions in the St. Louis area in recent days, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson, in an error-filled statement, mentioned ‘lawful orders’. I’m paraphrasing, but he said something like ‘Mr. Powell was given a lawful order.’ It got me thinking. Where does that term ‘lawful orders’ come from?

Spanking as Discipline is Oxymoronic

Those who endorse, encourage and practice physical violence on children, politely known as spanking, conflate the word discipline with the word punishment and this is wrong. According to Webster's (New Collegiate 1977) the word "discipline" comes from the word "desciple" and means a follower of Jesus in his lifetime. "Discipline" is defined as training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character. To discipline means to guide or to teach.

Fruits of the military-industrial complex

1. Our country tries to use the military to solve a problem while the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff acknowledges "there is no military solution."

2. Surplus military equipment is sold to local police to be used against citizens.

World's billionaire population skyrocketing.

Fueled in no small part by environmental atrocities, war and generally being able to manage governments with money (and the $16 trillion the US Fed passed out didn’t hurt either). What is more, the number of those at the bottom of the income and wealth distribution are growing. All in all, it appears that social wealth – both cash, government fiscal health, as well as the health of the commons\environment – is being transferred up into the private hands of the few.
