‘Labor Day’ in a country that hates Laborers? What’s with that?

We just got past the nation's so-called 'labor day'. There is no more meaningless Holiday around though since our country's corporate elites actually hate laborers and think that they are the bottom scrapings of society and should be treated like shit.... ALWAYS. They do not want laborers (called workers by many) to have either a minimum wage, or what the elites label 'entitlements'. Think I am making that all up? Then go to the Wall Street Journal's Saturday edition immediately before this years' fake-oH!'labor day'. There, the corporate criminals that hang out in loads at the US's leading capitalist publication, the WSJ, headlined THEIR idiotic question of 'Are Entitlements Corrupting Us?' ... the 'us' meaning not them! See their real views about LABOR at Are Entitlements Corrupting Us? Yes, American Character Is at Stake. 36851

“Invest in America” speak-out at Lame-Bone’s Office Tomorrow

Instead of his lame-ass "town halls" like the Tea-Party ones he held for health care, remember those? The one at a Country Club on the far edge of town that started after the bus stopped running on a Friday evening, no more bus service till Monday morning? Working Class need not apply? Then they filled the hall with a Republican Party strategy session before the "open to everyone" Town Hall? And the Republicans stayed for the "open" Town Hall, making sure nobody else could come in? Yeah... THAT old Pig tactic. This Speak-out is outside his Luxury Office Suite, where anybody with a million-dollar annual income and a campaign contribution check has easy access. Again, Poor people, workers... need not apply. Unless the Punk can prove that he actually does own one square inch more of the streets and sidewalks than any other citizen, there ain't Jack they can do about it. Bring stereo equipment, something with microphones and amps. Make sure every TeaBag sellout who works for him can hear what the REAL people have to say. 10:30 tomorrow morning, Thursday 24 Feb 2011, at Doug Lamborns congressional district office in Colorado Springs. MoveOn.org is sponsoring, and this is an info blurb: 23209

From last Friday’s action, some pictures, some linked commentary

The linked commentary isn't about the bus lack-of-service, it's to fellow local activist Loren Wirbel made a short documentary film just showing a FEW of the multi-gazillionaire "defense" plants around town. You know the ones, our Magnificently Superior Business Experts at City Hall made the command decision for us to give them Tax Exemptions that would make Reagan blush, to draw them to a Strategic Location where they were going to come anyway. So they get local services on the local dime far disproportionately to what they actually paid for. It's bad enough that We The People have to subsidize Corporate Welfare Cheats like Lockheed but they're also Corporate Warfare Daddy Warbucks types who make their money from other people DYING. Deathmongers getting a free ride from our Wise and Noble and Ever So Much Better that us City Hall. The rest of us paid our fare, but we don't get the ride. That's not fair. By the way, that last line isn't complaining, it's telling the Ayn Rand worshipers that they're complete Liars when they say stupid shit like they're actually a Free Market where everybody has a chance. Lying... Cowardly... PUKES. A swarm of Parasitic Slugs in search of

Reid asks: Why would Hispanics Vote GOP, GOOPers upset

Like, Jews voting for Hitler. Seriously, it's THAT obvious. The GOOPers actually are getting all bent out of shape because somebody pointed out that a) They've made official oppression of dark-skinned people a Platform Priority Plank ever since the only Good Republican was assassinated at Ford's Theater in 1865. b) A lot of us swarthy folk have actually noticed that fact and c) Calling people Racists for noticing that their Get Outta Our Party! "big tent" has a "No Coloreds" sign at the door, and the only bilingual sign on the tent is at the back door and says Servants Entrance, is kind of Stupid. OK so it's REALLY Stupid. They gun a man down, actually make him lay down on the concrete face down, THEN shoot him, Oscar Grant in Oakland California, the GOOP notice only that people of color say that it's a racist crime, and the GOOP do as they always do, and Back The Badge, say that the Colored Fellow deserved to be shot for talking back to Uniformed StormTrooper Thugs who believe and state that they're "The Law" in their own persons.

Doug Bruce on video mouthing off about “illiterate peasants”

When Rivera shot off his own foot saying something similar, at least he wasn't running for Mayor (can't, term limits) To be fair, the "Illiterate Peasants" he was referencing weren't the Bus Riding Public who incidentally are the Working Class who support him and the rest of the Parasite Class. They're seasonal labor Farm Workers who quite literally feed his fat piggy ass and those of his Parasite Class comrades. The ones who, like him, feel that the bus service and the people who ride the bus to WORK, mostly, are extraneous and needn't be considered. One attitude spills into the other and then back again. "5000 Illiterate Peasants", compared to your similar indictments of people riding the bus? When Mayor Rivera said something similar, the "illiterate peasants" with whom I was riding the bus and discussing this same issue (Before the Big Purge of bus service) were a retired lady, with really bad health problems that come from aging, and a SCHOOLTEACHER who is blind from birth. I personally can't drive because of my neurological problems, similarly, from birth. Mayor Lyin' el had said that only bums and winos ride the bus. You could tell right there that he wasn't running

Work in a capitalist society does make people sick

In a previous commentary here at Not My Tribe ... I wrote that there was scientific evidence, as well as everyday common sense evidence, that work as defined and dished out by our upper crust bosses under capitalist society in America makes people sick. I was amazed that such a simple and easily verifiable observation provoked so little intelligent discussion by our esteemed readers! What gives? 5785

Working

One of America's great socialist leaders, Studs Terkel died last week during the pre- election hoopla. What made Studs Terkel stand out from all the other Americans of lesser stature was his respect for the average working person as a human being. He proselytized on behalf of the common people, even as American society increasingly began to devalue those who actually do the work of society, as opposed to holding up high those that are profiting from the work of others. 5425

Sarah Plain, um, Palin

Someone forgot to tell Cindy McCain that the fashion word on Sarah's big night was "populist." Cin's half-peeled banana outfit was examined by the couture analysts at Vanity Fair and the numbers look like this: 4644

Higher food prices now being driven by higher fuel prices

We can now see the first effects of the world energy crisis, as local grocery stores are creeping their prices of basic foods upward. The dollar stores also are not exactly dollar stores these days, and never will be again. There are two reasons for these price hikes. 3157
