….. The Summer of 2013
Summer recess for the Congress is a time for senators to languish with their constituents‘. House leadership of the Republican Representatives has rewarded us with the most dysfunctional House in the nations history. Republicans offers a mere token representing leadership. Bipartisan passing Obama’s policy on reforming student loans. 392 to 31. The 31 remain in their dysfunctional ideology of their making, sipping their tea, as progress passed them by.
Luke Messer representative of Indiana praised the student loan deal as a triumph of both policy and politics. Hoping this will appease the anger and disapproval of the constituents’ towards the House’s infamous lack of leadership.
Messer goes on to say ;“It’s a great victory for taxpayers, because taxpayers won’t be forced to subsidize student loan rates that are arbitrarily set by politicians,” Mr. Messer said.“This, I hope, opens the door to potential compromises on some of the other big issues that we have before us that we have to deal with in the next several months. This proves Washington can work.”
Such solemn devotion which was lacking when they allowed student loans to double in interest payments. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Mass. was the principle advocate for having student loans fixated to the interest rate that the Treasury loans to banks. Something Messer and his colleagues continuously rejected. Now as the fact of up coming elections and facing their constituents they become solemn in their desires for this bipartisan leadership to continue unto other issue in the fall.
Some constituents find this too little too late. Others take a wait and see as 2014 approaches.
Will these representatives finally suppress “Austerity” and render support to the middle and the improvised? Promises, promises, promises of the politician.
Questions will haunt them on the issues of immigration. Why have Republican Representatives have no plan on immigration as the Senate has passed an Immigration Bill back in June?
Overhaul of the “Austerity” driven tax code again strangulated by Republicans Representatives. What’s the problem?
As Obama demonstrates the effective fast reduction of the nations debt; Why does the Republican Representatives find this budget unacceptable?
Obamacare has recently be evaluated as successful through out the nation. Benefits have emerged, on a Republican water downed Health Care system, that they now continue to obstruct its implementation.
Why on the same day Republicans Representatives pass the student loan deal they abruptly return to shot down the proposal for a $44.1 Billion funding bill on transportation and housing, that would aid the impoverished with jobs and housing. Republicans Representatives prefer cutting aid to our improvised from the normal allocation of $3.3 billion to $1.6 billion level which is lower than it was first introduced by President Gerald R. Ford!
Representative Hal Rogers, the Kentucky Republican who leads the Appropriations Committee, stated that the House could not pass spending bills that complied with overall financing levels set in its own “austere” budget plan. Republicans desires for “Austerity” is now politically publicly admitted.
This explains the reluctance for our graduates. All of the Republican proposals demanded higher interest rates tied to inflation rates or political desires.???
Republican Representatives for “Austerity” will have a warm summer greeting.

….. The Price Of Inequality
People from around the world heard the shot that crippled the financial markets. Shot originated from our Wall Street! Suspects were the Banks to big at fail.
Years of 2007 to 2008 exposed the flaw of the means and ways the USA defined their GDP. Foreign nations discovered that Inequality measurements were not represented.!
.. Symphonizing of the siphoning of wealth from the improvised lower classes to be horded by the 1% minority. Orchestrating with fine attentive desires of greed. Filling their coffers’ treasuries and outsourcing their horde for safe keeping from the Tax distributing environment of their beloved nation.
Melodies of bankruptcy erupted across the nation for over 8 million families homes. Tuning with increasing unemployment. Enveloping all within the finical ballroom. Students waltzing with tens’ of thousand of debt with no work available. Alas as the bell tolled for them at midnight, as they returned to their homeless rewards.
Millions more would soon accompany them with lost savings and defunct pensions. Safety nets that once retained them from such desolation, were sold to the highest bidder of their political domains. Strongly suggestive signing calling for the forced retirement to the improvised laborers.
Americans dreams of secured homes sold for less than its hard earned purchase. Vacancy was the norm through out the nation. Disrepair and lost of upkeep to properties festered on the infrastructures of a once proud majestic nation.
After shocks from the Great Recession will continue to affect this molding Nation until at least 2018 before complete repairs can be considered accomplished. The Price Of Inequality was merely illuminated for a brief moment in time, of the cost of inequality. Inequality has been eroding this nation for over a century. Inequality in the past 40 years has accelerated similar to the years before the 1929 Great Depression with similar results.
Within the bastions of the horded wealth, the symphony played on. Rejoicing in the price of inequality. Distributions of wealth being divided up with the 1% receiving one fifth of the nations income with the largest share to be rewarded to the 0.1% to the tune of 33% of the national income would be transferred to their coffers due to their wealth of assets. Some of which is rent control of national resources, politics and of course the media. Some assigned to continuously orchestrate the tune of A La Propaganda.
Tunes that are required to distract any observation of siphoning as was occurring during the years of 2002 to 2007, to the tune of 63% of the National Income to the 1%.
Alas had this been more evenly distributed the ballroom would still be overflowing with celebrations of prosperity for one and all.

No, that is untrue when not specifically referenced.
Assumptions such as that have no basis in fact.
Half the post here do not respond to the original post.
Besides, Galt does not care for religious education and most certainly does not approve of taxpayer subsidies for same. That goes for Roman schools and other religions, as well as the born-again types. Also applies to any subsidies for home-schooling of any kind.
Do what you want, but pay for it yourself.
"John Galt"
Agreed, the government should not be involved nor pay for in any way, in education provided by religious organizations. In my case my children attended parochial schools, I picked up the tab. I will admit that federal dollars filtered into the system. I wish they had not.

The Bar-Kokhba Revolt
(132-135 C.E.)
The Bar Kokhba revolt marked a time of high hopes followed by violent despair. The Jews were handed expectations of a homeland and a Holy Temple, but in the end were persecuted and sold into slavery. During the revolt itself, the Jews gained enormous amounts of land, only to be pushed back and crushed in the final battle of Bethar.
When Hadrian first became the Roman emperor in 118 C.E., he was sympathetic to the Jews. He allowed them to return to Jerusalem and granted permission for the rebuilding of their Holy Temple. The Jews’ expectations rose as they made organizational and financial preparations to rebuild the temple. Hadrian quickly went back on his word, however, and requested that the site of the Temple be moved from its original location. He also began deporting Jews to North Africa....
==========
Cassius Dio: was an historian from a leading family of Nicaea in Bithynia who was born around A.D. 165. His name may have been Claudius Cassius Dio (probably) or Cassius Cio Cocceianus (less likely). His father, M. Cassius Apronianus, was proconsul of Lycia and Pamphylia, and legate of Cilicia and Dalmatia, according to T. D. Barnes, in "The Composition of Cassius Dio's 'Roman History'," Phoenix, Vol. 38, No. 3.(Autumn, 1984), pp. 240-255.
Cassius Dio was named praetor by Emperor Pertinax (r. 193) and Barnes thinks he served in this office in 195. He was Roman consul twice, perhaps in A.D. 205/6 or 222, and then again in 229. Dio was a friend of the emperors Septimius Severus and Macrinus. Dio served his second consulship with Emperor Severus Alexander. After his second consulship, Dio retired from political office and went home to Bithynia,
Cassius Dio wrote a history of the Civil Wars of 193-7 and a history of Rome from its foundation to the death of Severus Alexander (in 80 books). Dio's history was written in Greek. Only a few of the books of this history of Rome have survived. Much of what we know of the writing of Cassius Dio comes from Byzantine scholars. The Suda credits him with a Getica (actually written by Dio Chrysostom) and a Persica (actually written by Dinon of Colophon, according to Alain M. Gowing, in "Dio's Name," (Classical Philology, Vol. 85, No. 1.(Jan., 1990), pp. 49-54).
----------
Hadrians ravage-
In the city of Jerusalem both Herod the Great and the Roman Emperor Hadrian built on a monumental scale. Directing public works little more than a century apart, the two monarchs built in a similar style and with a common – Roman – technology. In the later Hadrianic period material from the earlier Herodian constructions was reused, resetting the distinctive "Herodian" blocks in new locations.
Both potentates wielded vast resources but an order of magnitude set them apart. For all his grandiosity, Herod was the client king of a minor kingdom; Hadrian was master of the Roman world at an apogee in the empire's fortunes. Among the resources at the emperor's disposal were the legions, the most effective instrument of construction, as well as destruction, in the ancient world.
Differentiating the works of the two sovereigns is neither easy nor, in the context of current politics, especially sought after. In some quarters, Herod – the half Jew – is viewed in a poor light, but then Hadrian, the nemesis of the Jews, is castigated as a vicious tyrant:“may his bones rot” is an injunction found in the Talmud itself. Much of the material written about the temples of Jerusalem fails even to mention the edifice built by Hadrian.
It all goes along with the Maccabees, Simon, Jonathan, Judah..Herodd on up to Jordons King Hussiens(1999) and Faisel of Iraq (1958),
