The Battle For The Future Of America

RightHandMan watched John Stossel’s “The Battle for the Future of America” last night and today asked me to give it a look.  It was definitely revealing as Stossel examined our current economic woes from unemployment to unions and the contributing factors driving our economy into a ditch.  It was outstanding and I recommend that people take time in their day to watch all three parts.  Trust me it is worth it!
