We collectively grieved for shooting of our children. But we gave scant notice to the 139 young Bangladesh roasted behind locked firedoors, sewing for $37/month courtesy of trickle down Bush tax cuts to overseas jobs.
Search me, I'm a crypto conservative who thinks that local serves local best. It's why I think all state representation - senate should reflect the man/woman; not a party. Governor should be by party because it is the source of collective policy.
It's the Amish mentality of consensus cooperative implementation of common universal need.
That's why I get the holy horrors when supreme courts allow undistributed dividends and union dues, and yes, organized crime money into the democratic process.
That gets to bedrock threat of one man, one vote, and the stink of a billion dollar pollution of our recent election lingers in lock down dead lock fiscal cliff force of ideologues.
The fiscal cliff corporate tax gift charity of Bush got splurged in Iraq and Afghan adventure where others who walk on two legs, just like us, grieve the 100,000 deaths we inflicted and generated generations of hate.
I'm an optimist. Future has to be better.
