(4 comments) SHARE Tuesday, August 2, 2022 Biden Would Rather Crash Main Street Than Wall Street
Biden's plan for lower inflation is laughable. The plan is nothing more than Reganesque supply-side economics, which is the root of our long economic nightmare. It is just another slush fund of corporate giveaways and money for nothing for nothing to corrupt political cronies.

A government that does not serve the people is not a democracy. We have to demand peace. When the politicians don't want to face the music and be held accountable, they take us to war. Then they tell consumers to DROP DEAD!

SPOILER ALERT: "Don't Look Up". It's a satire about climate change, politics, and a lot of other stuff.

The following is an excerpt from a longer article I wrote in January 2015. President Obama had announced in December of 2014 that the war in Afghanistan was over for the U.S. and NATO--- responsibility was being turned over to the "Afghan forces", President Obama said.

"Two systems are before the world. One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other we may be proud to call the American system"

The authors of The Hidden History, The Secret Origins of the First World War claim that it was Great Britain that started World War One, and not Germany. It is a convincing story. The authors George Docherty and James MacGregor call their book a conspiracy fact.

In 2005 Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenkowas dubbed " the last dictator in Europe" by President George W. Bush's Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. A better nom de plume for Lukashenko would be the Last Stalinist of the Soviet Union.

Liberals have made "liberal" a dirty word. They cannot hide behind the identity of progressive. There is nothing liberal or progressive about making bargains with the corporatists, fascists, and the corrupt power elites. It is time to bury the putrid body of the liberal class. It has already become a biohazard more dangerous than any virus.

According to study after study, such as the Rand Corporationand the Annals of Internal Medicine, show that the Veterans Health Administration provides the best healthcare, has the best medical outcomes, the shortest wait-times, and does so at the lowest cost of any other large healthcare program anywhere. The VA healthcare system (VHA) has only one mission: to provide the best healthcare.
(14 comments) SHARE Monday, August 26, 2019 Reply to Paul Craig Roberts' Question: "Is White Genocide Possible?"
I find it offensive, dangerous and ludicrous for Paul Craig Roberts (PCR) to portray white people in the USA as an endangered species. His article "Is White Genocide Possible? ", and similar such articles, feed the paranoia of white supremacists, white nationalists and fascists. The former, white genocide, is fantasy; the latter is a real and present danger to the US.

During the 20th century the US has failed to honor its word on many agreements, such as the broken 1950's Geneva Agreements that led to the Korean War in 1950, and the Vietnam War that lasted for decades after World War Two. It is estimated that as many as 8 million people were killed in those two conflicts.
