August 2010 Archives

Human societies exist on the basis of interdependence. When buying a loaf of bread, we must be able to trust that the producer of that bread used wholesome ingredients in an uncontaminated bakery. If we board a train or plane, we must be able to trust the competence of the driver and pilot. A breakdown in such trust and reliance, would quickly result in a failed economy for all. Societies are made of many groups, and such groups must cooperate and trust each other if that society is to reach its best potential.

Tom DeLay.jpgFormer U.S. House Majority Leader, Tom DeLay (R) of Texas, is scheduled to stand trial in Austin, Texas. The charge states he illegally sent $190,000 in corporate money through the RNC (Republican National Committee) to help elect GOP Texas legislative candidates in 2002.

TedStevens.jpgFormer Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska died this morning in an airplane crash. He lived a full life, and many will say he did much to expand the economy of Alaska through the use of federal dollars. For many Alaskans, Ted Stevens was a heroic political figure. All this true and said, Ted Stevens' way of governing, seemingly appropriate for his time in the Senate, is now one of America's greatest liabilities and challenges to overcome. May Ted Stevens and his way of governing rest in peace. The time for fundamental change is well passed due.
