The GOP Wants It Both Ways

     During the past few months the Republican Party has come out with some interesting policy statements. Here are a few examples:

      On July 3rd Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia delivered the GOP response to President Obama's weekly radio address. His entire discussion concerned the national debt, “one of the most dangerous threats confronting America today.” He went on to say, “At some point we have to say 'enough is enough'” The entire address is available on youtube.
     On July 11th Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona said, "You should never have to offset [the] cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans."
     The very next day Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, backed up Senator Kyl's statement with the following, “So I think what Senator Kyl was expressing was the view of virtually every Republican on that subject.”
     Apparently this is the official position of the party: We can't afford to do whatever is necessary to prevent layoffs of teachers, police, etc., or to aid the unemployed, but we can afford to cut taxes for people who make campaign contributions to senators.
     As always, Republicans continue to attempt to “starve the beast.”

     As we have seen, the Spirit always builds on what has come before; nothing appears out of nothing. If a construct with reference to an object in physics or chemistry is inadequate or incorrect, it will soon be replaced by new and more accurate constructs. The original “hard” object is still available for further transcendence and transformation. A construct with respect to a strictly mental construct, e.g., morality, justice, love, etc. is hard to refine because its referent varies from user to user.
     Constructs – The spirit Runs Through It.
