First Edition

Welcome to the first edition of the newly titled blog, “America’s RAW Deal.” “RAW” is WAR spelled backwards, where war should go so peace can go forward!

Peace has NEVER gone forward in America! If you doubt it, please see my book, “America’s Oldest Professions: Warring and Spying” at http://tinyurl.com/n9ew856heck . I spent about a decade doing the research to write it, and I did not rely on school books or the mainstream media that give a varnished history of our nation.

Or you can see what people like David Swanson, co-founder of World Beyond War (http://worldbeyondwar.org/ )  said about the book: “This deeply moral, highly readable, and urgently necessary book, which provides a wealth of new information even to a reader like myself who writes on similar topics, takes us from the birth of the United States to the Barack Obama presidency.“  Or what a WWII Veteran said about it: “Dr. Brumback gives us a penetrating exposé of an America in the late stages of an addiction. The toll of death, destruction and human misery from its habitual warring and spying is mounting.”

I will be posting many more blogs about the RAW Deal, but since war is so depressing, for this first edition I will start by quoting some  humor about America’s politicians,. They are, after all, partly responsible for America’s endless warring.

What Some American Humorists/Comedians Said About Politicians
