Today is also the 220th annniversary of the Treaty of Canandaigua.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Canandaigua

The Treaty of Canandaigua is a treaty signed after the American Revolutionary War between the Grand Council of the Six Nations and President George Washington representing the United States of America.

It was signed at Canandaigua, New York on November 11, 1794, by fifty sachems and war chiefs representing the Grand Council of the Six Nations of the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy (including the Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca and Tuscarora tribes), and by Timothy Pickering, official agent of President George Washington.
The treaty established peace and friendship between the United States of America and the Six Nations, and affirmed Haudenosaunee land rights in the state of New York, and the boundaries established by the Phelps and Gorham Purchase of 1788.

It was the second diplomatic agreement entered into by the United States of America under its current Constitution (the first was the Treaty of New York, made with the Creek Indians in 1790).

The location in Canandaigua of what was then a Seneca village is now a city cemetery.

14 richest Americans made more than entire food stamp budget

Trickle down works so well, eh? More like golden showers
1789, anyone?

http://www.alternet.org/economy/it-happened-again-how-14-people-made-more-money-entire-food-stamp-budget-50000000-people


For the second year in a row, America's richest 14 individuals made more from their annual investments than the $80 billion provided for people in need of food. Nearly half of the food-deprived are children. Perversely, the food stamp program was CUT because of a lack of federal funding.

In a testament to the inability -- or unwillingness -- of Congress to do anything about the incessant upward re-distribution of America's wealth, the richest 14 Americans increased their wealth from $507 billion to $589 billion in ONE YEAR from their investment earnings. As stated by Forbes, "All together the 400 wealthiest Americans are worth a staggering $2.29 trillion, up $270 billion from a year ago."

Billions of dollars of wealth, derived from years of American productivity, have been transferred to a few financially savvy and well-connected individuals who have spent a generation shaping trading rules and tax laws to their own advantage. It's so inexplicably one-sided that the 2013 investment earnings of the richest 1% of Americans ($1.8 trillion) was more than the entire budget for Social Security ($860 billion), Medicare ($524 billion), and Medicaid ($304 billion).

"Go to the Supreme Court, win $25,000!"

From "Lancaster OnLine" a few months ago....

"Go to the Supreme Court, win $25,000!"


The East Earl owners of Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. on Thursday received a $25,000 Heritage Foundation prize for taking their religious liberty fight to the Supreme Court.

Norman Hahn, founder of the 1,053-employee kitchen cabinetry firm, and his family, pro-life Mennonites, are challenging the government's requirement that they cover emergency contraception in their workers' health plan. They say paying for the pills and devices would violate their religious convictions.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday.

The conservative Heritage Foundation also awarded the Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship to David Green, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby, a chain of craft stores that also sued over the contraception mandate.
