Fellow Arizonans and other interested friends -
 
Can you believe the level of fear-inspired, selfish insanity gripping our state today?  Our governor has already removed thousands of people from the Medicaid lists (some of whom have died as a result), and now she wants the president to allow her to remove hundreds of thousands more, in addition to cutting-off the funding of therapy services for people who are seriously mentally ill.  At the same time, she has the unbelievable brass balls to push for increased tax benefits for corporations - because everybody knows that corporations need business incentives more than sick, struggling people need medical care.  
 
Just this morning it was suggested on the news that a good way to help balance our state's financial crisis would be to close down a lot of schools.  After all - who needs 'em?
 
I know that Arizona is horribly in the hole, not unlike a lot of the rest of the country.  And if you ask me how the deficit should be made up, I don't have the answers either.  But I have studied karma and dharma and the Golden Rule for most of my life, and one thing I do know is that we should not do it this way.  No, no, no! 
 
I think the discussion should begin with realizing what we should not do, since that is so much clearer than what we should.  We need to start there and work forward, instead of creating a group karmic debt that will take much longer to pay off than any monetary debt ever could.
 
I have a question that nobody else seems to be raising.  Somehow there exists a fund of one hundred ninety million dollars to pay individuals who have won the Powerball jackpot.  Yet, at the same time, the states are claiming that no money exists to keep schools open or to provide medical benefits for the most vulnerable among us.  Doesn't anybody else think there is something surreal about that picture?  It's like there is no connection between the government's left brain and its right. 
 
What about us?  Do the two sides of our brains connect?  If they do, we need to speak up.
 
Please share this with any media outlet that you think might be interested.  We face a threat of moral bankruptcy that will generate far worse penalties than any bank could ever impose.
