Speaking Truth to Power Since 1981
We want peace, we want our children to experience growing old and having a future. We need to fight for our future.
“… It has become challenging to keep up with all the ways in which the president has not only embraced, but expanded and institutionalized, George W. Bush’s most radical policies.”
“A hard look at Sanders on foreign policy issues shows that he is a progressive poseur, a phony, a conservative Democrat, and not a socialist by any means.”
(And Hillary is a Hawk)
“The attack on Kosovo is hardly the extent of Sanders’ hawkishness.”
Unfortunately Sanders is a darling of AIPAC. (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) And when he isn’t telling constituents to shut up when they ask about Israel, he is openly supporting military genocide and ethnic cleansing in Palestine
“Unions can’t fix every social problem, and ought not be expected to do so, but to win the loyalty and trust of working people, labor has to embrace and act on the principle that if it’s a social justice problem, it’s a labor issue.”
“Bernie has baggage. He supports a trillion dollar boondoggle, the F-35 fighter/bomber, which cannot even match the performance of the previous bomber costing 80% less. (The definition of profiteering.) He is also supportive of drone strikes which are known to kill an average of fifty innocents per strike. He condones illegal settlement-building and attacks on Gaza by the IDF.”
