With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

A LOOK UNDERNEATH THE MYTHOLOGY OF AMERICA



BBC documentary looking into the extent of poverty in America that has grown out of control to become an issue that U.S political parties blame each other for, rather than providing solutions. 40 million Americans are classified as being in poverty.

It would have been nice if this piece had mentioned Obama's war spending as an example of misplaced priorities.  The more than $10 billion spent every month in Afghanistan would go a long way to help folks back home who don't have the money for food, health care, or a place to sleep at night.  Otherwise it is an excellent documentary and I appreciate the outrage that you hear in the voice of the reporter.
