We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
You hear the canard every day - "taxes kill jobs." It is no more true than the business about "clean coal," but someone believes that if you say it often enough people may start to believe it (Goebbels anyone?). This article takes the argument apart and proves rather conclusively that it is demand that creates jobs, not some millionaire sitting around wondering what to do with his excess non-tax dollars.
