This is a continuation of our discussion of the final versions of the House and Senate Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (sic) bill. Those are now the law of the land, PL 115-97.
48, 49, 50!
We’ve been counting our days since the Pesach (Passover) Seder. 50 days after we were freed from Egypt (Mitzrayim- a place of narrow straits), we were waiting by Mount Sinai (sorry- NOT in the “Sinai Peninsula”, more likely in Saudi Arabia, near an active volcano), to receive the 10 Commandments. Where the words were seen- yes, seen. I admit, until I saw the effects of a rocket plant explosion in Henderson, Nevada, I had no idea you really could see “sound”. Not surprising that those in attendance were totally awed…
Uh-oh. We thought it was bad enough that criminals could hack into our cars and planes. We knew that these computers we love to play while we drive or fly had downsides. But, we forgot to account for the fact that our car alarms and ignition devices are also controlled by these electronic units.
Here’s a contrarian view to what so many politicians want you to believe. We must provide a social safety net for the poor. We must find a way to educate parents – and to find a means to let them have enough time- in between their two and three shifts of (part-time work)- to spend “quality time” with their kids. We must fund early childhood education.
We’ve been counting since the Pesach (Passover) Seder. 50 days after we were freed from Egypt (Mitzrayim- a place of narrow straits), we were waiting by Mount Sinai to receive the Tora. Sorry, folks, this was more likely NOT in the “Sinai Peninsula”, but found in Saudi Arabia, near an active volcano. As I wrote yesterday, we saw AND heard the words of the Supreme Being (you can get the idea by studying this rocket plant explosion in Henderson, Nevada).
