The Ghost of Reagan…..

 An interesting article about the effects of Reagan’s infamous firing of all those Air Traffic Controllers.  I wonder what the effects will be 30 years from now from all these Republicans and their insatiable quest to demonize all public service and/or union jobs?  What will our country look like?  One thing for sure, I’ll think twice before flying again.

What Are They Thinking…..

Is this really the strategy the New and Improved Republicans  want to go with?   I wonder, just how do these businesses and corporations think their companies have been built without the working class?

I think the Republicans are showing their arrogance and ignorance in a big way and the end result is not going to be pretty.

Deja vu?

The U.N. has passed a resolution for no-fly zone for Libya.   Notice who has veto power and which countries obviously did not join the party.  Is this a positive step to end the current conflict or is it just one more step closer to all out war in another Arab country?   What are your thoughts?

Signs of a new grassroots movement – this time without the tea?

Actually, if working people would collectively join in this group – they would be stronger than the current unions.   And there is not one damn thing GOP elected officials to do to get rid of a grassroots movement – unless they want to get rid of their own Tea Party at the same time.
