RNC cries uncle, the Koch takeover is complete

It’s official now, kids, the Republican party is now the party of plutocracy, a fully-owned subsidiary of Koch Industries. If these guys have their way, it’ll be welfare for the wealthy, socialism for the social register.

Education for Empowerment

I have just returned from a ten-day session at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, in a limited-residency graduate program in Labor Studies; the study and education of workers in this country is THAT important a topic. In this program I have studied Labor Law, Labor and the Media (neither of which is our friend), Labor Research (to attain information on those corporations that take from us and leave us little), and Labor History ( so we can learn what working people had to fight through so that we can get the benefits we have right now).

You can’t always count on the “left liberal news media” or the “full of radical professors” school system to tell us working people the real story of us and our movement; that is left to us to tell our stories honestly, and to make a stand for our rights and for our children. I urge everyone to enter a Labor education program of any sort, and empower yourself with knowledge-and put it to work.

100 years ago, the U.S. invaded and occupied this country. Can you name it? – The Washington Post

The nation’s occupation of Haiti ranks with our Viet Nam adventure, and our time in Iraq. Our government must accept the reality of the time.

A prudish view of the body

John Oliver Mason:

A prudish view of the human body is an insult to God, who created the human body in its glory.

If the GOP tries to sink the Iran deal, it won’t be the first time – Salon.com

This is the same as when Richard Nixon, who called anti-war demonstrators “bums” and treated them like traitors, contacted the Saigon government and told President Theiu to not agree to a deal with Hanoi and the VC being negotiated by the Johnson administration; the idea was to undermine the peace negotiations so Humphrey wouldn’t get elected in that close election of 1968.

THIS is from the same party that supposedly LOVES the military and is SO super-patriotic, the same party that calls honest dissent teason, and they don’t mind undermining the government and endangering our military personel, so long as it keeps them in power. Should we try to DISBAND the Republican party if it acts like this?
