Washington Post editors want America’s bloated defense budget increased. So do some of its contributors. America’s business is war. Without end. Ravaging, destroying and pillaging one nation after another. Doing it for wealth, power and dominance. While vital homeland needs go begging. At a time America’s only enemies are ones it invents. Annual congressional national defense authorizations are the tip of the iceberg. America’s defense spending constitutes a black ...Read full article...

Economic Recovery in America? US Poverty Report Contradicts GDP Claims
