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.

Politicians and pork chops; its buyer beware.

Politics in this country is packaged a lot like pork chops... a couple good ones are put on the top of the "specially priced family pack" to suck you into buying them. When you get home you find nothing but fat and bone hidden on the bottom of the package to add weight.


But even the chops looking good on the top of the package are most likely loaded with all kinds of bad things from hormones and anti-biotics to all kinds of other drugs.


The pig was most likely a Monsanto GMO although we aren't told this.


Wall Street money employs Madison Avenue to package politicians in much the same way the local supermarket packages its pork chops in "family packs."


Chances are you wouldn't buy a "family pack" of pork chops if the bad ones were placed on top of the package and the label stated: "These pork-chops have been pumped full of contaminated water to add weight and are a danger to human health; they could make your dog sick."


The Wall Street bribed politicians will tell you whatever you want to hear to get your vote but once elected its a different story... all you end up getting is what the sparrows leave behind.
