View Full Version : Shameless self promotion
I've got an exclusive (e-mail) interview with Sen. John Edwards regarding poverty over at Facing South:

Very poignant message-
(Thoughtful questioning done on your part...congrats on the interview.)

Good stuff! Thanks.
"And we all pay a steep price when the American dream no longer seems attainable to every citizen."
Well that's definitely happened, a loooong time ago.
How about a Gore/Edwards ticket for 2008?
The platform could be, "It's time to save what is important. Planet Earth and humanity."

Good stuff. Pretty amazing that the so-called mainstream media seems to ignore the hell out of Edwards. Maybe because he makes so much sense?

yeah, good interview. i was pretty lukewarm on him in '04, but i've been impressed with him since. if hillary doesn't run (which i still think she won't)(although everybody else being so positive she will is eroding my confidence on that point) then i think he'd be one of the frontrunners in '08.

if hillary doesn't run
if she gives a flying f*ck about her party/country/planet she won't. and i _think_ she does.

I totally agree. If we acknowledge that he makes sense, then we'll have to do something about it!

Very interesting interview, thanks!
On the same topic, we just returned from 10 days in Toronto. My impressions apply only there, of course, but in general there seemed to be a much smaller difference socioeconomically between the rich & poor. I skated extensively around the city, and could not find any poor neighborhoods. I'm sure they exist, but normally they aren't that hard to find. I also didn't see any obvious ultra-rich neighborhoods. Again, they probably exist, but these kinds of differences are just far less visible in Toronto.
Health care is free, and just as good as that in the US according to my doctor. Toronto has THE best public transportation in the world. There really is no reason at all to own a car, which is very expensive.
There are neat, clean, nicely kept-up schools all over the city. They are so good even the suburbanites move into town to take advantage of them.
Income taxes are higher (38% I think is the top bracket) and you hit the top bracket sooner. They don't have a monster military machine to pay for. Sales taxes are 14%. Otoh, there's no FICA or Medicare withholding. Propety taxes are far lower than they are in Knoxville.
Mortgage interest isn't deductable there, so housing is far cheaper than any similar city in the US, or even Knoville.
The total effect seems to be a more even transfer of both educational opportunity and basic support services to the less affluent.
