That is referring to the Spirit of Jeremiah.........Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah was a "Being" before he was conceived and before God breath into his infant body
the royals and nobles adhered even more firmly to tradition and archaic law. As it would turn out, their intractability would cost them everything that they were trying to preserve.
Calonne finally convinced Louis XVI to gather the nobility together for a conference, After giving his presentation, Calonne urged the notables either to agree to the new taxes or to forfeit their exemption to the current ones. Unsurprisingly, the notables refused both plans and turned against Calonne, questioning the validity of his work. He was dismissed shortly thereafter, leaving France’s economic prospects even grimmer than before.
As for raising new money, the only system in place was taxation. At the time, however, taxation only applied to peasants. The nobility were tax-exempt, and the parlements would never agree to across-the-board tax increases.
in 1786, the French government, worried about unrest should it to try to raise taxes on the peasants, yet reluctant to ask the nobles for money, approached various European banks in search of a loan. By that point, however, most of Europe knew the depth of France’s financial woes, so the country found itself with no credibility.
The monarchs of the Bourbon dynasty, the French nobility, and the clergy became increasingly egregious in their abuses of power in the late 1700s. They bound the French peasantry into compromising feudal obligations and the upper class refused to contribute any tax revenue to the French government. This blatantly unfair taxation arrangement did little to endear the aristocracy to the common people.
France’s Debt Problems
A number of ill-advised financial maneuvers in the late 1700s worsened the financial situation of the already cash-strapped French government. Aggravating the situation was the fact that the government had a sizable army and navy to maintain, which was an expenditure of particular importance during those volatile times. Moreover, in the typical indulgent fashion that so irked the common folk, mammoth costs associated with the upkeep of King Louis XVI’s extravagant palace at Versailles and the frivolous spending of the queen, Marie-Antoinette, did little to relieve the growing debt. These decades of fiscal irresponsibility were one of the primary factors that led to the French Revolution. France had long been recognized as a prosperous country, and were it not for its involvement in costly wars and its aristocracy’s extravagant spending, it might have remained one.
All ships rise with a high tide........no one wants to stop the wealthy from succeeding.....the wealthy will always make money(assets).... that why we need government...to make sure everyone else makes Money (assets) too........Its should never accumulate at the top like it does under Republican policies

I worked hard ...to get what I have....that is just American.....My problem with conservative policy is that it give everything to the top end and take it from the middle class and the poor......They will have to answer to Jesus for that
That's what gets me....why did Bush almost hide off to the left.....If that had been me....I would have an arms length of the current President
