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.

Minnesota Democrats and Republicans working together to kill people and wild rice

Minnesota Democrats are working with Republicans to push legislation resulting in more pollution from sulfide mining. Everything that hurts or harms people and the environment is hidden behind "jobs, jobs, jobs."

With all the talk by politicians about about how everything they do is about creating jobs, I wonder why there is so much unemployment and poverty in Minnesota?

And with the few jobs that are actually created, Affirmative Action isn't even enforced.

Over one-hundred years of mining has left us with poverty, pits and pollution... the wealth leaves with the outside owners of the mining operations who stuff their pockets and couldn't care less what kind of environmental, health, social and economic mess they leave behind. Once again, a few profit and everyone else suffers.

Racist Democratic Minnesota State Senator Tom Bakk whose campaigns are bankrolled by the Minnesota Indian Gaming Association and the mining companies is the ring-leader of this push to introduce destructive sulfide mining in Minnesota.
