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.

Trump's hypocritical empathy... a pretext for barbaric and savage bombing.


Trump says he attacked Syria because he felt so bad about the dead children.

Yet, Trump has turned Syrian refugee families with children fleeing this war away from the United States.

And Trump's empathy for children did not extend to the dozens of children he murdered in air strikes in Mosul, Iraq.

Trump's empathy did not extend to the eight year old girl murdered by U.S. Navy Seals who attacked Yemen.

There is nothing worse than this hypocritical empathy used in order to carry out this kind of barbaric savagery against a country which has never done anything to harm us.

I would point out that Trump probably killed these children in the first place as a pretext for attacking Syria.
