Harmonious

 
     I just want to remind everyone that Moses's 2nd wife was probably Black. See Numbers 12:1--she was a Cushite, an Ethiopian. His first wife, Zipporah, was a Middle Eastern Midianite, more closely related to the Israelites? So, some people in this world need to get a grip.
       How did Moses meet her? Maybe she left Egypt with them. Exodus suggest some other people attached themselves to the Israelites and their God and left with them.

Real Help for the Middle Class


If our leaders REALLY wanted to see salaries raised for the middle class in general, the so-called "working class" in particular, they'd do this:

GIVE A TAX BREAK TO CORPORATIONS THAT HAVE A HIGHER AVERAGE WORKER TO CEO SALARY RATIO.  Those that insist on paying their skimming CEOs exorbitant salaries wouldn't get the break.

Immigration may irritate some workers and have them think that's the sole problem. It's more the refusal for those at the top to take less so that their workers could have more. (That's what feeds into paying immigrants lower wages.) It really isn't like CEOs "deserve" it like they & corporations claim. It's because one company jacks up CEO salaries, then the others follow suit and it comes to be expected. Then a corporation that wants to stand out jacks it up even further, etc.

A Very Grand Canyon


There may be larger canyons around the world, but ours is very grand.  The kids & I recently went to the less-travelled North Rim, which is higher in elevation.




We also saw Roosevelt Point on the North Rim:



Here's a picture from October, 2010, when I took them to the South Rim:


(Both times, my husband had either work or study obligations.  But he & I went to the South Rim a few years ago for our wedding anniversary.)
