3. I don't begrudge the WH even 54 trees. Fox does. My target is the Imperial Presidency in general.

And the sense of entitlement that seems to pervade the Executive and Legislative branches.* Especially during war time and a recession. And especially when taking from poor people seems to be the only way anyone in Washington can think of to cut spending.

The plutocrats have been shifting wealth from the poor and the middle class for about thirty years now. The transfer of wealth has been massive and relatively speedy. There's hardly anything left and they're still taking--and from the very most vulnerable to boot.

When is enough enough?




*Maybe the Judicial Branch, too, but, so far, I have not heard of excesses there.
