Colorado Springs Union Printers Labor Day event a dead ended march by SEIU to a locked up Democratic Party office building!

Dead_End Good grief what a pathetic event I just attended at today’s Labor Day rally to try to build support for Obama’s health insurance reform’ project! It had all the usual local area Democratic Party tied people out there, and they marched us, after an insipid talk-to rally attended by about 50 people, straight down Union to the abandoned and deserted offices of Mark Udall, in a locked up building fronted by an utterly empty parking lot. The staff for this guy didn’t even have the energy to open up the building for us upon the rally’s arrival!

It was DP poisoned, dead ended organizing by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) at its worst, and the dead end locked up building symbolized perfectly where Obama will lead this crowd in the long haul. To a dead end for any real reform taking place very soon.

This ‘rally’ was utterly underlined by the no-show DP hack, Udall, and the anemic attendees that came out to give their support to …. what? …’health insurance reform’? Now just what is that and what happened to single payer as a goal for real reform as opposed to encouraging a rabid herd of profiteers to still take their profits off the sick and maimed? This was one of SEIU’s 6 Colorado State recent rallies BEHIND the Democratic Party machine they so hope to get a few crumbs from. One such crumb is now called ‘insurance reform’. Forget about American health care reform altogether, or at least keep it hush-hush!

How about these 2 signs for none-inspirational de-motivation for health care reform activists?

Health Insurance Reform ’09 – We Can’t Wait!
(and the even worse:)
Reform Now- Insure People, Not Profits …?

 
Notice the emphasis on INSURANCE put out by these Obama-Lites of the SEIU? They were rallying us to be keeping INSURANCE at the helm of the delivery of American Health Care, even if more than a few of those who chose to attend the event hardly realized that! Very sad and no wonder the Union Movement in the US is dead, dead, dead. Nobody will get inspired by these union hack goals and their insipid rewrite of any decent goals for organized labor to focus its energies on.

The American public is sandwiched in between Right Wing kooks and not even liberal hacks, but flag waving centrist bureaucratic hacks from and allied with the Democratic Party. Thank you, SEIU, for next to nothing here. You are simply not Change that Works, but simply more of the same rotten old dead-ended business unionism that leads to disorganization of the workers you claim to speak for. Change has to be fought for and not compromised into zombie-like existence by hacks like yourselves. It will take much more than this to accomplish REFORM.
