President Obama: Reject Warnings of Tyranny

“This is a startling video clip because in it US President Barack Obama bluntly confronts the reality of the current US conversation in which up to 30 percent (according to one recent poll) believe armed rebellion will be a necessity in the near future.

The American Hiring Paradigm Is Broken

That’s up from about 36% in 2006.” Continue reading
