It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed and the treachery of their leaders.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

In the wars to protect the American dream of a righteous, compassionate nation, there have been heroes and there have been villains.

Today we have a hero:

Chicago Tribune: 1/31/2017: President Donald Trump fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates Monday night, after Yates ordered Justice Department lawyers Monday not to defend his immigration order temporarily banning entry into the United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world.

In a press release, the White House said Yates had “betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States.”

Sally Yates knew what would happen to her for her defiance of a leader who preached fear, a leader who would have us crouching behind a great wall, while innocent people of a religion are refused entry.

Sally Yates rose one brave voice of protest, a small voice in the scheme of things, but an important voice.

There will be more.

She follows in the tradition of our founders who defied the king and built America. There were heroes then.

How many of us today would risk our jobs to defend our Constitution and the people and the religions it was designed to protect?

How many of us will make excuses to ignore the ideals and ideas that made America special?

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal . . . whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.”

“. . . a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. . . “

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me”

Sally Yates is one who stepped forward. There were many more, and there will be many more, until cruelty and cowardice once again have been defeated by American compassion and courage.

Godspeed Sally Yates. May your name long be celebrated.

Monetary Sovereignty

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

ECONOMICS LAWS

•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money.

•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes..

•No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth.

•Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.

•A growing economy requires a growing supply of money (GDP = Federal Spending + Non-federal Spending + Net Exports)

•Deficit spending grows the supply of money

•The limit to federal deficit spending is an inflation that cannot be cured with interest rate control. The limit to non-federal deficit spending is the ability to borrow.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Progressives think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.

•The single most important problem in economics is the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Austerity is the government’s method for widening the Gap between the rich and the rest.

•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.

•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..
