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 racist execution Troy Davis

The racist execution of Troy Davis proves how bestial and barbaric this entire system has become. There is no longer even the pretense of justice left. How hypocritical for Obama and most Democratic Party elected officials to have remained silent in the face of such an injustice. One more example of how racism, corruption and attacks on the very basic democratic traditions we hold dear are destroying our country. An innocent man was allowed to be legally lynched in the racist state of Georgia as those who could have stopped this execution remained silent. Tells us a lot about how rotten this government really is.
