I find the lie that America tells itself and the world, that we care about our children, particularly heinous and pernicious.  By any measure the U.S., as a society — of course you love your children — doesn’t give a damn about the next generation. We should be ashamed of ourselves. That we do not care for and nurture our young is a serious national character flaw. One that will shape our future in ways great and small.

It is the intention of the Republican Party to see that America’s heritage of national forests be sold for a pittance, or just given away to a small group of corporations. This is so shameful I am amazed that that is not the lead story of the news cycle. But the corporate media doesn’t really seem to think the issue is of much importance, so it doesn’t get much coverage.

Finally, the real truth with regard to Nuclear weapons and the Middle East.  Take note of the date of the report 1987.  It is now 28 years later without absolutely NO constraints having been in place on Nuclear Weapons development throughout that whole time.  What does that tell you about Bibi’s concern for a nuclear free Middle East?
