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.
Matt Taibbi explains what's going on with the Federal Reserve and the National Debt. In 1933 Franklin Roosevelt went on the radio and explained the bank holiday. Will Rogers said he explained it so well even the bankers could understand. Try to get your local banker or Republican to read Taibbi. If you read him, you'll even understand Quantitative Easing, sometimes called QE 1 or QE2 and so forth.
