1. Austerity in Europe is a topic that hopefully, President Obama will discuss in the State of the Union

Address in a few weeks.

The US Treasury has bailed out the financial institutions twice now, under both Bushes.

The 2009 Stimulus was not enough. We need our second bailout only; big enough this time.

The true test is coming: Austerity or an appropriate stimulus. Which one will the President project. The GOP projects austerity even though they know it will bring the working 90%, further down.

Printing money: American cannot get the hoarders out of the Cayman Islands. That money is not coming back.

Is America in a decline? I will be watching the voting record of Democratic lawmakers. And listening to the speech of the President very carefully.

3. K&R. This was a great, great interview.

I'm looking forward to hearing more from Kucinich now that he is free from his time-consuming work in the House.

He is a visionary and deserves a better forum from which to influence American thought than the House.

I think that Kucinich should form a digital think tank. We have some good digital sources of news. We need even more scholarly input. We need a think tank that produces articles and speakers who are effective and not right-wing. I think it could be done using internet resources and volunteers. The Huffington Post started out in that kind of direction but was soon waylaid.
