Hi Dave, I always read your comments and enjoy them.. I usually agree with most of thoughts. However today you blame Pres. Reagan and his "Trickle Down Economics". You seem to blame him for the problems in our larger cities in Michigan , when in fact same cities have been run by Democrats for over the last 40 years..go figure... Rod

Hey Rod, thanks for your thoughts. I always appreciate feedback, pro or con. Trickle-down is not something any party can control. It affects Republicans as well as Dems. It is a state of mind, a deep philosophy that the 1% have fostered, thinking "we know better than you people and your politicians what to do with your money." If all the money flowing into government is funneled away in tax cuts for corporations, little is left to run the basics of government like police, fire, roads, etc. Then to top it off the corporations move their companies and their money offshore so it cannot be taxed for the good of the country. It really doesn't matter which party is in power, if the big money is gone, they -- and we -- are screwed. That's what is going on in Michigan now -- worst in the nation. The GOP is in charge but they can't run the state with no money because of a philosophy that started with Reagan. Worse than that, they don't, or refuse, to recognize why!
