Random Thoughts April 11, 2011

If you combine the latest “deal” that the President negotiated with the Republicans with the “Compromise” last December that extended tax cuts for the wealthy for two years, you can see that a policy of cutting taxes for the highest income groups and paying for it by cutting spending for the poor, the sick and the elderly is now the policy in Washington.

The Buffalo News reported yesterday that the local Tea Party leaders have failed to pay taxes.  Now we know where their anti-tax sentiments came from.

According to the NYT Student loan debt will reach a combined level of $1 trillion.  And you thought the days of indentured servitude were long past.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the ruling that stopped the Arizona Immigration Laws  that allow police to stop suspicious looking people and demand to see their papers.  The East Germanization of the U. S. will have to wait for the Supreme Court to allow the law to go forward.  The Supreme Court revels in overruling the 9th Circuit.

Larry Summers is back on the Harvard Campus.  Remember, this was a man whose arrogance was too great even for Harvard.

Zonker is going to the royal wedding.
