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.
Charles M. Blow in the Times today writes about the overwhelming anti-intellectualism of the Republican party. Last week Senator Rubio, when asked the age of the earth, said we'd have to ask the theologians. According to Gallup, 58% of Republicans believe that God created man in his present form less than 10,000 years ago. Only 16% of Republicans worry a great deal about global warming. The party is being taken over by fundamentalist Christians and appears headed for the same fate as the dinosaurs.
