True Value 

Politicians allocate resources to where they perceive worth in order to acquire and hold power for themselves, by buying votes from the greedy, the uneducated and the deluded.

A nation directs its resources toward what it truly values rather than what it says it values.

The U.S. is the wealthiest nation in world history. Though only 5 percent of the world's population resides in the US, in 2009, the U.S. military budget was almost as much as the military budgets of the rest of the world combined. The U.S. has over 300 military bases here and all over the world - there's a list on Wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_military_bases).

U.S. schools are so deprived of funds that they are shedding teachers and opening only four days per week instead of five. Supplementary educational programs are being cut.

Could Americans please stop saying they value education when what they really value is war?

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
