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.

"Great Decisions" the forum used by those in power to educate the business community

The other night I attended the "Great Decisions" meeting at the Lake Travis Community Public Library; the meeting was intended to discuss immigration and why people leave their country.

When I mentioned people were leaving their countries because of capitalism, colonialism and imperialism a right wing bigot viciously attacked me calling me uncivil and the microphone was grabbed out of my hand to prevent me from explaining with examples.

One more example of this great bastion of democracy.

Facebook, the billionaires' idea of what constitutes democracy

Facebook prevented me from posting and commenting on other pages... then they extended this censorship to my own Facebook page.

So I closed my Facebook page completely.

Facebook made the outrageous claim that my posts and comments violated their "community standards" but arrogantly refused to say how I violated their "community standards."

Democracy and debate

The mainstream media and the hacks employed by the Democratic and Republican parties are striving to make sure dialog, discussion and debate is confined to the parameters they dictate.

In order to solve our problems we will need to get beyond these dictated confines.

Where does the real threat to humanity come from?

The real threat to peace and democracy comes from the fascist cabal of Trump, Pence, Pompeo, Steny Hoyer and Elliot Abrams... and Wall Street's two parties, the Republican and Democratic parties both defending and implementing Wall Street's imperialist interests are the main threat to peace in the world today.

Stop the attack on Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua

Trump, Pence, Pompeo, Bolton, Steny Hoyer choosing to work with Elliot Abrams have made it U.S. policy to bring down the people’s governments of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.

The Wall Street Journal has openly stated this to be U.S. policy.

This is criminal; the threat alone is a crime for which Trump and this entire cabal of Fascist warmongers should be impeached.

There is something very sickening about these liars and crooks entangled in their own web of lies and corruption of their own making trying to dictate to others what kind of government they need in order to be “free.”

Trump has proclaimed socialism to be his enemy.

We need a full and honest discussion about why Venezuelans, Cubans and Nicaraguans have chosen the road to socialism and rejected capitalism.

And, as part of this discussion we need to consider why we should get rid of capitalism and get on the path to socialism... we need a full and open public discussion about capitalism and socialism.

Only capitalist corruption could saddle our country with the likes of these deceitful, lying, corrupt fascist, warmongers like Trump, Pence, Bolton, Steny Hoyer and a human being as sleazy and creepy as Elliot Abrams with his blood drenched hands.

Rescind and withdraw recognition of Juan Guaidó!

Hands off Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua!

No coup in Venezuela!

End the sanctions and embargoes!

Solidarity with Maduro, the only legitimate president of Venezuela!

Solidarity with the peoples and their governments of Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua!

Read for yourself the front page article from the Wall Street Journal about what these imperialist monsters have planned... circulate this for discussion... is this what you want being done in your name?
