December 23, 1776

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Robbin' the 'hood

It sure looks like they’re going to pass that tax increase on the middle class. Oh joy.

I keep hearing that they’re doing it even though they know it’s unpopular. 219 more words

For some time now, the big news has been centered around the abomination of the “tax reform” bill in Congress, a version of which has already passed the House and which will be coming for a vote quite soon in the Senate. Both versions cut taxes dramatically for the wealthy, increase them for the average worker, and perhaps most importantly, stand to increase our national debt astronomically, which will ultimately lead to the downfall of our economy. Just today it is reported that John McCain will vote for this bill. Blogger-friend Kevin Brennan has written a short, sweet and to-the-point piece that I encourage you to read, then get on the phone, send that email, in one last ditch effort to ensure your Senator that he or she will lose your support if they vote for the bill. Thank you, Kevin, for your work and permission to share!
