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.

Paul Ryan lies about health care just like everything else.

Republican Paul Ryan is running the biggest scam about health care I have ever heard. I don't think we have ever been subjected to more lies and misinformation.

Paul Ryan claims we only have two options:

1. Do nothing. Stay with Obamacare.

2. Repeal Obamacare and go with the Republican scam.

There is an alternative: a National Public Health Care System, the only way to fix this mess.

More lies and slanders against North Korea coming from Nikki Haley

I post this, what U.S. Ambassador to the United Nation's, Nikki Haley, said about the leader of North Korea because it shows how these Wall Street imperialists attribute bad things to others which could easily be said about someone like Trump, which would be more accurate in making such a statement; not that truth has ever mattered in carrying out Wall Street's imperialist agenda.

Here is what Nikki Haley said about the leader of North Korea:

"We are not dealing with a rational person,"

"It is an unbelievable, irresponsible arrogance that we are seeing coming out at this time (the testing of missiles- A.L.M.)."

Donald Trump is the real nut job.

The fact of the matter is, North Korea, even with its missile tests, poses no threat to anyone; while Donald Trump and the U.S. government pose a threat to everyone including ourselves.

North Korea has never attacked anyone.

North Korea has 24 ballistic missiles and has conducted two nuclear weapons tests; compare this to what the United States has done and continues to do.

Let us be very clear about Korea, North and South.

If the people were left to decide their own destiny without U.S. interference, there would be one Korea and it would be a socialist Korea by democratic choice.

The United States oversaw and directed a massive slaughter of Communists in southern Korea at the end of World War II on a scale of the barbaric slaughter and savagery the CIA carried out in Indonesia.

The United States has isolated North Korea and imposed a succession of thoroughly corrupt and politically repressive governments on the people of South Korea.

In my opinion, it is foolish for North Korea to be wasting its limited resources on weapons and it should not be testing nuclear weapons because this is harming themselves without providing any real defense. On the other hand, anyone who thinks North Korea has no right to be testing these weapons should be among those doing everything possible to stop the Wall Street imperialist agenda which intends to try to bring an end to socialism and prevent the re-unification Korea.

After all, whose Navy is going to be using the new JeJu Naval base; and for what purpose?

The United States has refused to negotiate nuclear non-proliferation treaties and nuclear disarmament. Israel has nuclear weapons no one wants to talk about.

It is time for an international peace movement to muster the strength to force all countries to end the nuclear arms race and insist on beating swords into plowshares. It is time for the peace majority to be heard from.

I challenge anyone to dispute what I have said here.
