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 fiscal cliff fiasco

In this "battle" surrounding the "fiscal cliff," the Democrats are hiding their true Wall Street agenda behind this phony facade of "economic populism" these over-paid muddle-headed foundation-funded middle class intellectuals like Dean Baker, Robert Reich and Paul Krugman have created for them using George Lakoff's "framing" methods embedded in red-baiting and anti-Communism in which financing militarism and wars play no part even though the largest and most overwhelming part of the federal budget goes directly to financing militarism and wars instead of being designated for human needs--- all intended to try to keep people from stampeding out from under the Democratic Party's "big tent" which prohibits the entry of movement builders unless they will submit to holding up the Dumb Donkey's settling for what the sparrows leave behind.

The one and only reason a "fiscal cliff" exists in the first place is because the cliff has been created from years and years of funding militarism and dirty imperialist wars.

Like any garbage dump turned into a "park;" the "fiscal cliff" is a Wall Street creation.

The United States Senate voted 98 to 0 for the National Defense Authorization Act... how much has been allocated for people's needs? Kind of makes it easy to figure out how your Senators voted, eh?

What a score: Wall Street 98; the people 0.

Wall Street profiteers, the merchants of death and destruction versus the people's needs.

Wall Street investors go to the bank; the people get pushed off the "fiscal cliff" unto the sharp rocks below.
