About Me

My photo

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

President Reagan and the Buffet Rule

President Reagan promised the eliminate tax loop-holes for the super rich. But instead, he raised taxes on the middle class and relieved the super rich of paying their "fair share" -- his words.

To the Right Wing, if President Obama tries to reduce the loop holes, it is "class warfare". When President Reagan promised to do it but it never happened, then it is a "forgetting". Like it never happened.
