Hi community, budget conscious, environmentally friendly friends/family of mine! (Christians, Buddhists, Humanists, etc - all of you)
I don't expect everyone to agree; I do want to share information prior to making decisions.  If you've read/heard before - sorry for duplication.

Bill Gross(a very wealthy person): "Of Course" the Wealthy Should Pay Higher Taxes, Corporations Too" (He is talking about top 10% or so/who control more than 50% of our nations' capital) on techticker, audio available.

Mother Jones also has a great article about our nation's monetary inequities.

Inflammatory use of "stupid"...Look at the numbers they tell an interesting story.

The House just voted to make huge cuts in this year’s budget. Poverty-fighting priorities (make up less than one percent of US budget) were sharply cut.

Now it’s the Senate’s turn to weigh in on the budget--and we’ve got to tell them to preserve life-saving funding. Cuts to these programs will have a real, immediate, and devastating impact on the world’s poor.
I just signed this petition asking the Senate not to make cuts. Will you sign it, too?

Together as ONE we can make a difference.

Thanks!
Love you all. Trying to stimulate thoughtful discourse
