Nick Ashford Died

I've known about the songwriting team of Ashford and Simpson since 'Ain't No Mountain' spilled from Diana Ross' throat like a river of want whose dam has finally burst.  Anyway, heard that Mr. Ashford passed away from throat cancer today.  My condolences to Mrs. Ashford nee Simpson, and their daughters.  Thanks for the music!

Not Trickling Down: The Percentage Of Americans In Poverty Now Equals China

Not Trickling Down: The Percentage Of Americans In Poverty Now Equals China

Not The America I Was Raised In. The people who created this condition and allowed to flourish are "world wreckers", to use the late Marion Zimmer Bradley's phrase. They're unconscionable. The good news if we take it that way, is there is really NO other place for the world wreckers and their families to run to. The world wreckers will leave people in starvation in ruin as they pillage the planet's resources and take up poisoning it with a vengeance and they will not be able to escape the toxic accumulations in the air, water and the food they eat. There will be no place off earth to run to because the people in power - the people who have been satisfied to throw a nation's working and middle class into poverty - have all but gutted science and space exploration to the point that it can't be resurrected again. The creative impetus and the national will behind those programs in the 60s is long gone, pissed away in favor of short term, high dollar returns.
