It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

We need to beat swords into plowshares.

A program for real change...

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.

Three women members of the progressive PKK murdered.

Progressives around the world are mourning the deaths of the three courageous women members of the PKK.

Have you noticed few media have reported that the PKK is the Kurdistan Workers' Party?

I know a number of members and leaders of the Kurdistan Workers' Party.

I participated in a demonstration organized by members of the PKK in Montreal where the Montreal police beat the hell out of everyone including the women and small children being pushed by their mothers in strollers.

A group of cops charged towards me as they were swinging their billy-clubs clubbing little kids trying to get to me when a cop leading this attack on peaceful protestors demanding the release of Abdullah Öcalan shouted out through the loudspeaker: Leave that guy carrying the black briefcase alone--- don't hurt him, he is an American.

I guess these racist bastards called cops thought because of my darker complexion I must have been a Kurd, too.

One reason why Abdullah Öcalan, a hero and leader of the Kurdish people, is still in prison in Turkey--- held under the most inhumane conditions--- is because he reads the views of Professor Immanuel Wallerstein whose views I frequently post hee on my blog and post on facebook.

Like the brutal Montreal police, most likely acting on orders of some kind of joint CSIS and the CIA taskforce, who viciously attacked a peaceful demonstration that was predominantly women and their children, I have no doubt it was this same sleazy grouping who murdered these three leaders of the progressive Kurdistan Workers' Party.

No doubt Barack Obama had the names of these three women on his "hit list."

Shameful and disgusting. Very sad.
