Wake ‘N’ Bake: Lies

WWH - Today’s lesson is the result of my reading something on Alternet this morning (Monday) about the GOP’s “4 Biggest Lies About Jobs (And Why Obama Must Repudiate Them).” Apart from being dubious that “repudiate” is

Where Were We for the Genocides?

President Obama said if the U.S. did not intervene in Libya it would become a stain on the conscience of the world. In my opinion there is already a stain on the world conscience. So I have written a new poem.

Where were we for the Genocides?
Disease, Starvation, Meltdowns, who decides?

A Warren Run Would Change Everything
