Here's why we have a budget deficit. Rather than cut services to the poor (who provided the big business profits by receiving low wages and benefits), shouldn't we get the big boys to pay their share? After all, they get plenty of benefits from the taxes WE pay.
"For us let it be enough to know ourselves to be in the place where God wants us, and carry on our work, even though it be no more than the work of an ant, infinitesimally small, and with unforeseeable results."
-- Abbé Monchanin
