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.
The drumbeats get louder and louder. The propaganda war against Iran gets nearer and nearer to a real war. We're "shocked" that Iran shot down one of our drones flying over their country. Imagine if an Iranian drone had been flying over Iowa! This all has a deja vu feeling: weapons of mass destruction, etc. Orwell would have loved it.
