    that we don't have a massive WPA-style program that makes homes energy-efficient?

    •  So many projects (10+ / 0-)

      good projects that would result in good jobs and good results... but we spend trillions on wars and terrorists... and in my opinion, doing the bidding of big corps who have international "interests".

        commited to harm the US.
        Why does no one ever ask why?
        The US commits coups and installs brutal puppet fictators who as long as they are friendly to US interests (corporations), they are given a pass.
        The Shaw, Saddam, baby Doc, Gaddaffi, ect.
        But when the dictators change the rules, they are taken out.
        By our military.
        Sorry if this sounds insensitive, but those who sign up because they love their Country are just cannon fodder for the corporations. Butler laid this out so many years ago.
        When they are hurt, it is very difficult for them to get treatment.
        Joann mentioned our troops in Africa.
        Funny how so many Countries convienently start having a terrorist problem right where the corporations are going after a Countrie's resources.
        Our Congress gives away OUR taxes to so many foriegn counties, but then say they do not have enough money to help our citizens.
        Why are we giving Israel $3,000,000,000/ year?  
        What does Israel do for us in return?  
        This is madness.
        What Obama has done since he took office is disgusting.
        Dropping bombs on innocent civilians who are no threat to us. How many countries are the CIA, JSOC in now?  
        Over 80.
        That isn't defending the US.
        Thst is terrorism. If another Nation did what we are doing, that is what we would call it.
        Not prosecuting war crimes makes sense, because he is doing the same things.
        Shame on him.
        I did not vote for him this time.
        He made so many promises in 08, but kept very few.
        Would Romney be worse?
        Probably, but thst does't let Obama off for his war crimes.
        This Nation has been at war since I was born.
        And it isn't really war. It is invading Nations for the coporations.
        We pay the bill, they keep the profits.
        Great diary.

        Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?
