OPINION AND EDITORIAL
AMERICA’S FINANCIAL CRISIS: THE NEXT LEG DOWN
By Mike Whitney


June 05, 2009

Editor’s note: Mike Whitney is a financial writer based here in the Sky Valley. His work has been published both in the U.S. and abroad. The following analysis of America’s current economic struggle is reprinted here with permission.

Collapsing home prices and credit markets continue to put downward pressure on consumer spending, forcing the Federal Reserve to take even more radical action to revive the economy.

May 15, 2009

Special Guest editorial to Sky Valley Chronicle by Sibel Edmonds, Former FBI language specialist

For this piece I am going to break with tradition and start with an appropriate quote from a living current senator, John Kerry: “It’s a sad day when you have members of congress who are literally criminals go undisciplined by their colleagues. No wonder people look at Washington and know this city is broken.”

"A nation's greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members."
Mahatma Ghandi

"Any society, any nation, is judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members -- the last, the least, the littlest."
Cardinal Roger Mahony in a 1998 letter “Creating a Culture of life”


Last month The Farm - a Christian ministry based in Snohomish known for years for reaching out and helping the less fortunate - did something so sweet, so thoughtful and so caring it should restore confidence in the heart of the most hardened cynic in the basic goodness of human kind.
