Tax ‘em hard

The conservatives will say the liberals want to give away the store, and the liberals will say the conservatives don’t want to give away anything. I am a lot older than any of the buffoons on both sides of the aisle, and I say they are missing, maybe not intentionally, but they are missing the real picture. The United States has over 400 billionaires. India, a poor country, has 56; the Czech Republic, a small country of 10.5 million, has 6 billionaires. All over the world, every country has its share of billionaires it has always been this way and as long as 1 percent of the world owns it all, it always will be. People die in the streets of hunger, as they have in India, and unless the governments of the various countries hit the 1 percenters for a very large income tax nothing will change.

Nice people

My husband was at the Howe Street Superette Friday morning when our car broke down. We’d like to thank the people who stopped and offered their help. It’s nice in this day and age to see that there are still nice people willing to stop and offer to help. Thank you very much to those who offered.
