Whether you say Saint Nicholas, St. Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Santa Claus or simply Santa, you’re referring to the fourth century Greek bishop whose love, devotion and generosity to the less fortunate is mimicked throughout the world especially during the Christmas season. A season when selfishness is momentarily curtailed to celebrate God’s precious gift by mimicking Saint Nicholas’ unconditional and never ending love for the poor, sick and needy. So don’t allow the love and compassion resurrected during this Christmas season to fade away. than exists in the remainder of the world? We have a tax cut which mostly goes to the segment of the population that is doing the best in our economy and leaves out folks like we have in Macon. A city where not so many of us get up into the $75,000 $250,000 range they call the “middle class” and to corporations, which have never done as well as they have in the past four or five years. They have billions of dollars in cash reserves and paying an average tax rate of 19 percent. The big multinationals pay nothing in taxes. Tell me again why they need a tax cut on top of the deductions that aren’t being taken away?
And today the news is that these same big companies,
who also own the entertainment empires and ISP’s, have been given the right to control what we’re allowed to see on the Internet, slowing, charging extra for, or even banning/blocking content that they don’t actually own themselves, or just don’t like. In other words, they really will be able to make our reality what they want it to be exactly as it is done in Turkey, Egypt, Venezuela, Russia, and everywhere else except places where individual liberty and freedom are still paramount.
