4-3-11 Rueters photo--Demonstrators in Kandahar marched through the streets on Sunday-- 9 shot and killed the day before--the third day of protests against a Koran-burning staged by a Florida pastor. Every day, more senseless killing in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc., at our behest. 1
Democrat, Republican, or Independent, we need a politician who is truly conservative—knows how to conserve the public welfare, not just blow dollars, people, and resources up, in the name of democracy. In reality the liberal use of firepower only protects profits--of a very few, while damaging a great many at home and abroad.
oon approaches April 15. As by Supreme Court ruling our mega-corporations have now become mega-citizens, and can contribute unlimited wealth to our elections campaigns, Tax Day will have to become the common peoples’ voting day. In an open way we must say we will no longer immorally pay for unjust wars and their outlandish windfalls to the war industry. Contribute money with-held from the federal income tax government-supported war businesses, to local and national agencies that truly serve public needs.
God grant us the grace and courage for non-cooperation with evil. Help us convert treasure, into benefit, for all Your children.
We are scandalously over-invested in wealth protectors. [Click on any image to enlarge.]
If one discounts the social security trust funds, leaving the actual discretionary federal budget---
the graph becomes more stark.
Do not lay up for yourselves an earthly treasure. Moths and rust corrode; thieves break in and steal. [No banks, bombs or walls prevent it.] Make it your practice instead to store up heavenly treasure… Remember, where your treasure is, there your heart is also.” Mt 6: 19-21
