Welcome to United Workers Solidarity.
if the tea party is a grass roots political revival, why haven't they tried to reform wall street? follow the money. ------------------------------------------------------------------
Wall street produces goods and services, Wall St is the made of the public. Play if you like without being put in jail if you choose to not participate. The government produces nothing and will put you in jail for not financially participating.
You really need to get passed your envy of those who work harder and save more.
The biggest hitters on Wall St don't make anything, they just move money around while making a profit.
His curious use of syntax suggest that the OP you quoted is not a native speaker.
Could he be one of those filthy foreigners who come here to steal our jobs and suck up resources only to funnel them outside the country, and bleed us dry?
The Koch Bros. are reportedly funding the tea party...they'd be biting the hand that feeds them.
Also I'm wondering if it's possible to find that photo of the black woman that post about the ford company mentions.
I have seen that as well. Scientologists, and many ex-scilons, often support corporate fascism.
Then they claim that their views are "libertarian".
Doesn't look like it.
Can't find much trace of Mattie Woodson since. Surprising, as you'd think she would have earned celebrity of some sorts.
Apparently involved in Detroit labor at least until 1945.
I've found just a handful of references to that newspaper article (most are copypasta) and all seem to claim it was "never seen again".
Detroit Times was a Hearst paper. It could be that the picture never ran, or that they pulped the paper before it was sent out for delivery,
so there might have ever only been a few copies in existence.
I would think that if there were any surviving facsimiles, that the attempt to censor it would have gone viral. If not back then, some time since.
Gut feeling is- the photo and the newspaper may be apocryphal. Or the photo was taken, but never seen.
the only photo I can find from the March itself:
Joe DiBlasio's "head" stone.
Mattie's stained dress could be buried here:
that's really sad, a picture like that from that time would be poingent for multiple reasons.
Enjoy your iPhone
But this is the kind of "big government" they like...
"We are in your law, fixing liberties."
I've always wondered what "easter eggs" various pissed off interns may have slipped into the laws. It's not like our legislators actually read any of them.
Walker gets phone pwned:
Now, why on earth would Scott Walker want to talk on the phone with the editor of an online site in Buffalo? Well, he wouldn't.
But what if said editor pretended to be David Koch of the famed Koch Brothers? Well, that's a different story altogether, apparently! And so Walker, believing himself to be on the phone with his patron, seems to have had a long conversation about busting Wisconsin's unions.

Funny (I'm actually laughing out loud as I type.....thanks for noticing that), reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon by Chas. Addams.
View of a slave galley (ship)....everyone pulling their oars in misery.
Except for one guy with a big smile on his face.
One miserable guy to another: "I can't stand his attitude."
Edited to add: I can't stop laughing.
And your punchline is brilliant.
"The kid on the left is a Scientologist."
they should so use this picture and caption....
(and no, I'm not blind to the look of desperation behind those smiling eyes)
the essence of comedy
I don't have an opinion. I just read all that and am at the beginning? Better pack another to make sure.
yea herro is a dick!
BTW we have some Cox here too and they are cocks.
We need checks and balances. If workers can't organize, they'll get totally raped while the fat cats game the system to get even fatter. And that's the path toward a system of hereditary wealth and a fixed aristocracy. Me no wants.
On the other hand unions are self-serving and prone to corruption.
So we need unions with transparency. We need management with transparency. I don't mean constant monitoring and "stats," but basic awareness of the company's finances.
And we need to kill the fucking leadership woo the MBAs are taught. CEOs are not worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year. I went to high school with these guys, so trust me on this.
public service salaries are lower than private salaries
My son works for a county. If he were to do the same job in the private sector his pay would be a minimum of 2 to 3 times more than what he is making now.
Deputy AG, or the Brothers "Grimm"?
Agreed agreed agreed.
Well I wasn't expecting this. Smith and Williams on Fox telling the truth about Wisconsin:
Care to show some dox? Unions negotiate. When a contract is signed between a company and a union it, in a sense, means that this is a deal is made that both parties can live with. Unions in the last five years have made huge concessions to not only to stay working but to help the company survive, while the CEO's collect millions of dollars in salary and bonuses.
I stand corrected: I just received this from my son:
Just like we needed tough bank regulations back in the Savings and Loan crisis of the 80s and 90s. The industry learned from that and major institutions would never over-extend themselves with too much bad debt.
Lol, rightwingFaggots perplexed to find themselves hopelessly outnumbered on a PROTEST forum.
During the Bush years and the Dems were in control of the Congress, pressure was put on the banking industry by Congress to give lower income families greater access to mortgages. They did so knowing full well that many of these mortgages were going to be bad. They also knew that the housing market was good and if they foreclosed on a home that they wouldn't have to worry about selling it. But the economy took a dump and far more people defaulted on their mortgages than what was expected.
So who's at fault, Congress or the banking industry? Or could it be the Federal Reserve who kept lowering interest rates?
Lol, blameitonAcorntech while omitting a few details:
adjustable-rate mortgages resetting
predatory lending, and speculation
overbuilding during the boom period
risky mortgage products
high corporate debt levels
financial products that distributed and concealed the risk of mortgage default
bad monetary and housing policies
inappropriate government regulation
banks entering into the mortgage bond market
Is there a 'Broadcasters Union' that Fox people belong to?
Yes, and there are two related but separate issues driving the conflict in Wisconsin, one being concessions from the unions, many of which they have already made, the other being the right to participate in collective bargaining, thus the accusations of union busting.
American Federation of Television and Radio Artists
AFTRA is a national labor union that represents over 70,000 performers working in public and cable television programming, radio broadcasting, sound recording, audio books , voice overs, voice messaging, interactive games, internet technologies, digital media and other new media.
There are many subcategories that these performers fall under including; actors, journalists, hosts, announcers, comedians, disc jockeys, voice over artists, non-broadcast, dancers, singers, recording artists, royalty artists, and many more.
I'm wondering at this point, that Fox upholds the unions because they themselves belong to one, or more of them?
