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.
CEO salaries continue to soar, and their size relative to that of the guy on the shop floor is gigantic. In a bull market, stockholders don't criticize such a thing.

Meanwhile the United States has passed even the United Kingdom in economic inequality.
