Police fear that disciples of the rabbi, convicted of bribery, might lash out.04:00 27.11.15 | 0 comments
Gotta tell ya' \, you would like to see Israel spin down the slippery slope that the USA is currently "enjoying" and tell us that is the way to go. From the mid-thirties and into the seventies there were higher taxes in the US, most of it going into infrastructure, roads, schools, and other aspects of the Common. Factories could get their goods out to the markets quickly, people could get to thier destinations, and, in general, the country "worked". Then Reagan came along . . . a major bridge that spanned Minneapolis-St Paul broke. Everybody knew it needed repair, but the neo-cons, who didn't believe in public expenditures, or raising taxes to keep the roads and bridges in good repair were in charge. Who did the neo-cons blame--Big Government, of course. They built the bridge, they could maintain it! When "Wisconsin" was in place, at least in one town in the North, it resulted in more grief than can be recorded her. Men and women in their late fifties, many of them recent immigrants were placed in sweat shops, earning wages at less than minimum wage, some of them told to work at tasks that the industrial doctor did not allow them to do. That's just one thing. The program was discontinued because it wasn't working. It was one of those projects created with draconian rules that were meant to keep it going so the sponsors might keep makin' money offn' the govermint. You call that a failure of the system?! Get an economic life, dude, and start livin' with the people. Israeli businessmen are outsourcing production all over the place, leaving pockets of poverty in the towns where once people had incomes. That's the reason there is poverty, but all you can see is the money flowing into the bank. Lucky you, somebody is payin' ya' to spread the dribkes in HaAretz for all of us to read.
