    Israel has a govt comittee actively discussing the impact of consolidation of wealth, and a wealth tax bill is moving.

    Here in the US, not so much.  

    I think there is some hope in the notion that social movements in Arab North Africa will look at the Israeli protests and might realize they are more similar than different from each other.

           May we take a "leef" from her speech and recreate with flair a situation that would push aside obstructionism and get our country moving again?  Just as in Israel, the rents, the financial system is crushing the ordinary citizen, families it is happening here as well.  The parallel between "security situation" being used to frustrate what the domestic crisis needs is the same.  

               We need to push back and resist these boulders running downhill from DC and the state houses that add more to our burdens.
