Ronnie Reagan, George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Jon Ellis (JEB) Bush and Bernie Sanders are ALL on the same page when it comes to Gaza, wars of choice, capitalism and the military-industrial complex.
If you want more war, then vote for the corporate core: Republicans support the Fortune 500 and brag about it… and the Democrats support the same cons and used to lie about it. But this week, Obama and the Democrats threw us under the bus. checkout the rest:

Salt and Terror in Afghanistan
by Kathy Kelly
In late January in a room in Kabul, Afghanistan, I joined several dozen people, working seamstresses, some college students, socially engaged teenagers and a few visiting internationals like myself, to discuss world hunger.

Taking Action Against War In Washington, DC This September

Old-fashioned carnivals were dominated by an all-pervading hucksterism; midways featured barkers, shills, rigged games of chance and skill, and not infrequently defrauded customers — “short change” is a carny term. They also featured titillating freak shows, geek acts and museums of the outré and forbidden. Our midway, on the other hand, will satirize deception while inviting all participants to summon up their inner geek, that secret freak who hides behind the mask of what is called normality. We will turn grifting into gifting; otherness becomes creative self-expression. Man base design by Larry Harvey and Andrew Johnstone.

A new Black Panther documentary is about to hit theaters nationwide. And that's a good thing, because Americans generally doesn't wake up to anything unless they see it in a movie first.
In this light, check out this free documentary on the life and death of Fred Hampton, leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party who was murdered by Chicago police on Dec. 4, 1969 in collusion with the FBI's COINTEL program. Peoria Black Panther leader Mark Clark was also killed by police in that infamous raid.
