Mr. Blair was the junior, but an important key player, in the decision to invade Iraq, and he, as Britain's Prime Minister, took his country to war based on lies.
Companies are not hiring workers and expanding the workforce, but are insisting that employed workers do more.
Juliet Schor of Boston College says in the report, "We do know that we had massive layoffs. The workers who are left are doing much more work, and so we're seeing a lot of anecdotal evidence of rising stress, burnout, and unmanageable kinds of schedules for people."

Media Matters is still trying get $35k to run an ad on The O'Reilly Factor next week to tell Fox News fringe audience that they are a bunch of idiots.
Quote from the Media Matter email sent out yesterday afternoon --.
It was no surprise to us that Fox News left its viewers largely in the dark about the fact that its parent company, News Corp., donated an unprecedented $1 million contribution to the Republican Governors Association, a campaign operation that aims to elect Republican governors and defeat Democratic candidates.

He thought Discovery Channels' environmental programs were so bad that he had to do something about them. And so yesterday, he did, with a gun and the threat of bombs that would blow everybody up, he went to the Discovery Headquarters Building and got everybody's attention!
Tony Blair, a politician who I once admired, who came to the office of British prime minister with the promise that he would drive the final nail in the coffin of Thatcherism, that selfish-take-care-of-me-the-hell-with-everybody-else social policy of the Conservative politician Margaret Thatcher, has published his memoirs. For 700 pages of fantasy, lies and excuses, he received an advance of four million British pounds ($7 million). The book is titled, "A Journey."
Tony Blair claims in his memoirs that he got drunk to cope with the stress and he cried "for Iraq war victims."
So he says -- He was a stinking crying drunk? He admits to no war crimes.
The Rolling Stone reports -- "It seems Better Off Dead icon Cusack was idly tweeting; and he rattled off this thing proposing the construction of a “Satanic death cult center” outside the Fox News building. The full tweet --
