What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Barack Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

I published my response to Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize on The Huffington Post:

Ironically, the most hypocritical statement (which most likely quite by accident is also the truth) I have ever heard from an American politician, comes from Mr. Steele, the head of the Republican Party, who has probably given us valuable insight into how the 2010 and 2012 elections will proceed and shape-up when he states this so very obvious, basic, elemental and fundamental political truth in asking this question:

"The real question Americans are asking is, What has President Obama actually accomplished?"

Are Democrats and Obama actually so stupid that they do not see what most people see; or, are they just so much a part of this rotten and corrupt capitalist system that they are just playing their assigned role by their Wall Street masters in stringing the American people along in playing a game that they are not even aware they are a part of?

That a warmonger like Barack Obama was actually nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, let alone receiving it, even though he couldn't deliver the Olympics to Chicago, is like we are living inside of a freakish, bizarre Gore Vidal novel... no doubt Barack Obama "winning" the Nobel Peace Prize has provided Gore Vidal the motivation, impetus and material for his next, and final, novel.

We should tell Barack Obama to cherish his Nobel Peace Prize; but, unless these dirty imperialist wars for oil actually end--- he can forget about taking home our votes.
