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.
Freshman congressman Allen West (R-FL) has discovered something even the Chinese didn't know about: a giant Chinese navy! His solution: build more ships!

In fact, the comments may be the best part of this posting.
