Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Six years after the recession ended, many U.S. states are hard
pressed to balance budgets because of a sluggish recovery and their own
policy decisions. The fiscal fragility raises questions about how they
will weather the next economic downturn.

A majority of states are making cuts, tapping reserves or facing
shortfalls despite an improving national economy and stock markets at
record levels, according to Standard & Poors and the Nelson A.
Rockefeller Institute of Government. State revenue hasn’t rebounded to a
prerecession peak adjusted for inflation, and other factors are putting
pressure on budgets.

Alaska, Oklahoma and energy-producing states saw receipts fall with
global oil prices. Kansas overestimated revenue after tax cuts, while
New Jersey faces a shortfall thanks to unfunded pensions. Even some
Republican governors have championed tax increases to avoid further
diminishing services curtailed during the 18-month recession, the
deepest downturn since the Great Depression.  - Bloomberg Business
