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.
Like most of us, Obama could learn a great deal from Lincoln, especially in the way the Emancipation Proclamation came about. Radical abolitionist thinking increased across the North until Lincoln's middle-of-the-road approach was clearly hopeless. The #OccupyWallStreet people aren't abolitionists, but they're also not restricted to New York City any more. In fact, a group will meet tomorrow, Saturday, October 22, to plan Occupy Norristown. See you at 2pm at Steppy's in East Norriton, 2912 Swede Road (just north of Germantown Pike).
