I can't stop thinking about Barack Obama's first state of the union address last night, given on the day that Howard Zinn has died. Governments lie. We bailed out the elites, Wall Street, with trillions of our tax dollars and with no consequences. Next? The people must continue to pay; discretionary spending (the people's needs) will be frozen beginning in 2011, education cut, health care cut, women's and children's needs put aside. However, the war chest will continue to grow unabated. Change we can believe in? Quelle mensonge, mon vieux. What are you going to do about it?
Thank you, Howard Zinn, for being one of our most important teachers of peace and war resistance.
