S S & Medicare Are Part of the Solution, Not the Problem

Let me try to make this very simple.  Social Security and Medicare are not part of the problem.  They are part of the solution.  They are NOT part of the deficit.  Cutting them will not make the deficit less.  Cutting them will reduce the revenue side of the equation and make the deficit bigger.  Everyone […]

NATO’s War on Libya is a Progaganda Fest

By Peter Phillips Cynthia Mckinney is on a Truth Tour describing the corporate media lies regarding NATO’s intervention in Libya.
