-Shared Taxes Makes Kindred Hearts- Sharing the taxes burden takes pressure off everyone from the individual to small businesses so we can all do our jobs, enjoy our opportunities and support the care of one another, without the presentiments of fear, without the resentments of anger, and respective of our economic standings. Were these sentiments understood by all, paying fair taxes would also lend respect to responsible corporate enterprises, the best of which would be more supported than those who decry their responsibility with empty words and tricky manoeuvres for their own special intersts.
-Free from Fear through Emancipation- Every sentient being should be free from fear and be able to revel in emancipation from such awful times our neighbours to the South are experiencing and may suffer for many years to come, or at least until patience wears thin and revolution becomes the only road to reform. Close to two-thirds of USA’s population, both Democrats and Republicans believe and support fair social entitlements, services, and a government that is in line with the needs of the people, not obsessed with corporate privilege. Even more perplexing, the same governments resorted to leaning so heavily on small business and its own struggling work force that impoverishment is now at hand.
I am confounded by any understanding of governments that have given so much tax privilege to the large corporate structures who in return, decimated jobs and factories in their own country shipping them off to foreign countries
-Care-Mindedness the Goal- ple underscores the potential for what all human beings can realise when hope and opportunity is at hand. Upon this I shall meditate whilst continuing to pay my taxes with a heart that knows the less fortunate of my country are being cared for and my efforts are part of that support. The simplicity you bring to the meaning of taxes and care-mindedness, could awaken many from their improvident slumber in these impoverished times of greed, despair and lack of enlightenment. I believe this to be what the Buddha meant by an awakening, that happiness can be achieved through human effort and understanding.
Reply to your Huffington Post entry 9/21 But Mark, taking a wish list to this congress is really just a way to avoid doing anything, and palming off our responsibility to a stale mate congress. The economy needs jobs now. Would you be willing to hire one person on a national hiring day? Now the responsibility for patriotism and love of country and for jobs is in YOUR COURT! And mine too and all of us.
There is a solution to the jobs problem and it could quickly put hundreds of thousands of people back to work. It is not pro left or right. It is not from any corporation, it’s outside the government control, it’s totally voluntary, works in about one week, and helps all with little sacrifice from anyone.
We all know that
National Hiring Day – This is a day that corporations are encouraged to hire new employees. Corporations are called on to put patriotism first and help their country in hard times. Those corporations that cannot hire, are asked to stop firing for that month.
“A friend … discovered that were all the large corporations … to hire .5% of their work force, most businesses with fewer than 50 employees to hire one employee, those with up to 500 add two or three, then the unemployment problem would be back down to the place where people would feel there is hope.” – TXfemmom
