http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwpSh66aEUwv Since we’ve released the video “American Workers Vs Multi-Billionaires” the response has been overwhelming! It’s seems once again we touched a nerve and spoke to the hurt of millions of working class Americans that are tired of being manipulated by Fox News and Billionaire puppeteers.

Looking Towards An Odd Future…

Was It OK For Beyonce, Usher, and Mariah Carey To Perform For The Qaddafi Family?
