After 15 years of platitudes about job creation, I doubt that any magic pill supported by multi nationals has anything in it for me. This proposal appears to treat Corporate Officers and Investors as citizens of the world economy whereas you and I barely have the rights of an American citizen. I refuse to support this culture of financial privilege any longer.

I am concerned about what I am not hearing from presidential candidates when asked if they would have invaded Iraq “knowing what we know now”.
No one is talking about how “what we knew then” included hundreds of thousands of The People, demonstrating in hundreds of rallies across America. Add to that the hundreds of thousands that demonstrated around the globe, and regretting having ignored the public is a big missing in the answers.
No one is talking about the plethora of polls, op-eds, blogs, letters to the editor and petitions that questioned the case for weapons of mass destruction (WMD). It is as though the only information available was given at the podium at the United Nations by a man who is now publicly upset by how he was misled.
No one is talking about the interpretation, ‘we found no WMD, therefore there must be WMD’. Somehow blocking inspectors was the equivalent of a guilty plea. Those who called for enforced inspections are not included in the answers.
No one is talking about the member of the diplomatic corps who had intelligence debunking the “yellow cake” threat, and that his CIA operative wife (and her entire cover organization) was outed in the process of making a case for ignoring his input. The fact that he was correct goes unaddressed.
Perhaps you can add to the list of “facts” ignored in the answers given. It does not appear that any presidential candidate will do so any time soon.

Why we mourn.
An Amtrak train traveling from Washington D.C. to New York City derailed as it rounding a curve in Philadelphia shortly after 9 p.m Tuesday night. Five crew members and 243 passengers were on board. Seven are dead and countless are injured. Officials will investigate, but the speed of the train and the condition of the tracks are the leading contenders for the cause of this tragedy.
What we demand.
Long on the schedule for May 13th has been a Rally to Rebuild America. #RebuildRenew is a public request for government spending on our disintegrating infrastructure.
