I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me. -
Simone de Beauvoir
"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there -- good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea -- God Bless! Keep a Big Hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along." ~ Elizabeth Warren (next Senator from Mass.)
Some content of this blog may be offensive to some readers. I question religious and political hypocrisy and many times that involves some profanity on my part. If you are offended by an occasional f-bomb this may not be the place for you.
Former Democratic Party activist. I'm a liberal with a capital L, but I'm no longer buying what the Democratic Party is selling. I live on 5 acres of sand and sagebrush in northern Nevada with the Love Of My Life, three cats and three dogs.
