It's time to claim our Peace Dividend

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.

Health care for the Wall Street crowd and the politicians they bribe is a divide and profit proposition.

Democrats and Republicans, working under the guise of bi-partisan unity, have successfully used the divide and profit method for decades.


Here comes Hillary Clinton after never having supported single-payer universal health care or the better national public health care system now touting what is purported to be health care for children... a health care program that doesn't even universally cover all children--- division upon division all to secure greater profits for doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies at the expense of health care for children and everyone else.

All the foundation-funded outfits just love this piecemeal approach to health care because it assures them job security employed at very lucrative paying jobs.

The real solution to this health care mess is a National Public Health Care System--- everyone in, nobody out; publicly financed, publicly administered and publicly delivered... just like public education. And put the doctors and all health care professionals on the public payroll, too, just like teachers.

No money Clinton and her Republican friends will say.

Well, just end militarization and these goddamn dirty imperialist wars and use the wealth of our Nation to finance the creation of a National Public Health Care System instead of wars... beating swords into plowshares is the only way to go.

Take the profit motive out of health care completely; health care for All the people not profits for the few.

In the process of creating a National Public Health Care System we create over twelve-million new decent and good-paying jobs.

No other program offers the American people so much... free health care, decent jobs and improved lives for less than the cost of this insane militarism and Wall Street's dirty wars.

Health care, according to the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is a human right.

Stop falling for this "divide and profit" crap being dished out and shoved down our throats by both Democrats and Republicans when it comes to health care.

No wonder Albert Einstein advocated socialism; capitalism is the epitome of insanity--- especially when it comes to health care.

Didn't know the great scientist Albert Einstein was for socialism with one of his reasons being the need to end the capitalist health care system? Well, read on:


And Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. obviously had no use for Wall Street's capitalist system and the for-profit capitalist approach to heath care either:


This from another blogger:

Martin Luther King and Health Care

As I remember his fight for human rights this weekend, I came across this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I could not have said it better myself:

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhuman” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Health is a human right.
