Does America Really Need Its Own Holocaust?
20 Oct 2008
Modified: 04:20:15 PM

STOP THE PRO-WALL STREET NAZI FASCISM OF THE MCCARTHYITE MCCAIN – PALIN HORSE!

Investments in infrastructure and in energy-conserving retrofitting of houses, businesses and government buildings would engage hard-hit construction firms and their employees while contributing to the long-term growth potential of the economy. Investments in literacy, education and health care reform would increase the productivity of American workers and businesses.
