Iraq's humanitarian emergency has reached a crisis level that compares with some of the world's most urgent calamities.
Senators, presidents, citizens and yahoos listen: These Iraqi people did not do a goddamned THING to us. People (especially Americans) need to know what is happening to these good people, and get busy helping them while prosecuting those who caused and continue this gigantic misery.
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
