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.

The American people are thoroughly fed up

Obama admonished people to, "...stop your grumbling and put on your marching shoes." What a worthless, two-faced, hypocritical demagogue Obama is. Obama has never marched for anything. Let's see how Obama and his crooked and corrupt Chicago crowd handle those who put on their marching shoes in opposition to Obama bringing together the G8/NATO warmongers trying to shove austerity measures down our throats to pay for their dirty imperialist wars in mid-May.



In fact, people are fed up with Obama and his Wall Street agenda.

In fact, people have put on their "marching shoes" to protest Obama's Wall Street agenda. Just ask anyone:

How is Barack Obama's Wall Street war economy working for you?

The struggles in Wisconsin are far from over. I just traveled across Wisconsin talking to people.

The struggles in Michigan continue.

Now people have occupied Wall Street.

In another week, on October 6, demonstrators will hit the streets of Washington D.C.

Everyplace people are on the move because they are fed up.

I would encourage people to watch these YouTube videos with author/activist Michael Parenti explaining what is going on:

What we need to consider is an anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist commentary that could be used to further educate the public about the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations which seem to be spreading to other cities across the country including pointing out the need for organized labor to become involved, and the need for those in the streets and labor to come together to build a political party advocating at the ballot box what is being demanded in the streets as we work towards a General Strike.
