"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

How goes it Coldie?

Looks like the Dem primary shall get interesting the coming months. I am afraid however it will bring about a bigger division than from which they began. That new Socialist Party is looking more and more interesting.

That's the truth. I've been buried of late with work and family issues, almost no time to READ much less write but things are settling down somewhat. I'm also trying out a new operating system that I haven't quite mastered.

Having said all that I have been following the latest developments regarding our impending assault on Iran. In fact, that will be the subject of my next post-- hopefully in the next few days. Stay tuned.
