    Right now Trump could and should cut 10% of the federal budget, there is so much waste. A good place to start is congress and then get rid of PBS. Another thing to do is consolidate duplicate agencies, for example 126 departments and a gencies to ‘help’ the poor, why not one agency?
    Government is too big, greedy and seldom actually helps the people they are supposed to, instead fat cats make out and life long pols continue to milk the cozy system they set up for themselves.

    Does your 10% cut include the military?

    1. Patrick Fennell says:

      Yup. They can cut expenses by cutting out commercials and selling the golf courses. Congress is the poster child for government waste.

A Passover message: Resist the new inhumanity

Friday, Apr 14 - Why is this night different from all other nights? This night is different because it lights my way, in sharp relief, to an understanding that the plague of inhumanity to others only breeds an inhumanity in our souls.
