new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

fault lines: the top 1%

al jazeera on the u.s. economy

  1. The wealthy and the corporations do not pay the same share of taxes as the rest of the country because of all the tax loopholes.  They usually end up keeping assets out of the country to avoid paying their fair share of the taxes.  What taxing the rich does is provide jobs for those who are not rich.  Government spending equates to jobs, it's that simple.  The government isn't taking tax money and hiding it away; they're putting tax money into wages for Americans providing social services.  All of what helped our nation grow, the manufacturing industry, has been outsourced overseas and left a large proportion of the population without a purpose.  Whenever a little entrepreneurial business pops up, they usually rely on China to produce their product.  This does not help the American economy.
