Over 53% of our tax dollars go to War

Tax Day, April 15, is upon us with a vengeance and it’s not comforting to know that most of our funds go to fighting perpetual war bwo the Pentagon.

Especially with US schools, post offices, and court rooms closing for lack of funds! Either we-the-people are mad as hatters or the US government is trying to drive us in that direction while totally clearing out the US Treasury in the process.

As I groused repeatedly about the Bush-Cheney regime’s invasion of Iraq in 2003: with Jupiter the General retrograde at the time, the war would be a bottomless pit in the money department…was I wrong?

Well, this is a definite case of ‘sometimes you just don’t want to be right’.

And I stand by my opinion: Bush-Cheney didn’t go to war in Iraq or in Afghanistan in order to end terrorism – they invaded the Middle East on a misguided mission to promote it. And we see years later how the entire world is paying the price.

Dump Palin from Discovery nature show!

A wildlife-loving friend sent me this and I thought you might be interested in crimping the style of the Alaska-drilling babe they call Sarah:

Discovery Communications announced a new Alaska nature show starring Sarah Palin — the same Sarah Palin who escalated Alaska’s war on wolves and offered a $150 bounty for the severed front-forelegs of dead wolves.

The same Sarah Palin who fought against increased protections for America’s struggling polar bear populations.

And the same Palin who fought against the increased protections for the dwindling Cook Inlet beluga whales.

I’m troubled that Discovery Communications — known for their wildlife-focused productions — would choose to embrace such an anti-wildlife person as Sarah Palin to represent Alaska and the wildlife that lives there.

I just wrote to Discovery Communications urging them to dump Palin, and I am hoping you will too. It’s easy, just take action at ActionDefenders.org and please pass this message on!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
