"Union Hoodlums"


The Workers of the United States of America, known as "Union Hoodlums" by FOX news, and it's followers. The Working slobs of our ripped off Republic are still at it in the Mid-West. These images are from yesterday.

This despite the declaration of "Victory" by Wisconsin's republican governor Walker. Victory over the peoples right to collectively bargain. You know the play by play by now. I'll just say that I'm still encouraged by this amazing, and unexpected awakening by regular folks to the reality that they are screwed.

Totally screwed, and the Ownership class ain't finished &&^%ing them up the %%# yet!

Again to my dumb founded amazement that the People have turned on these evil greedy bastards, and are actually trying to save their own lives.

They want their country back.

The country where they used to have a job, a house, and food, and schools to send their kids to. They'd like all that back if ya don't mind.

The Ownership Society, as President Bush called his class, is telling them they have to return to the poverty of pre-world war two America. Also they should consider themselves lucky they're going to get 'even' that.

For some reason folks aren't happy this cold, and grim prospect.

This is starting to get interesting. If only Obama had been elected.

Stay Tuned.

America

by Walt Whitman
(1819-1892)

Center of equal daughters, equal sons,

All, all alike endeared, grown, ungrown, young or old,

Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,

Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,

A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chaired in the adamant of Time.

Next they'll be calling them "terrorists."

Like that old commie Michael Parenti says, a lot of the dwindling democratic attributes of this nation come from trade unionism and working class activism.

I'm very glad to see this uprising. If it continues and spreads nationally, the official response is liable to get ugly, as in tanks rolling down Broadway: class warfare waged openly, by the ruling class against all others.

As a part-time pacifist I hope you're wrong about that. On the other hand as back just before the Civil War it may take something big, and awful to change things here.

They send the tanks after us the game is up for business as usual. Folks will have to take sides. I'd say the Ownership Class, and the Tea-baggers are out-numbered 95 to 1.

Eh, the other 4% will be sitting it out in Canada.

Still having numbers don't always work as we see in Lybia. Yep interesting times.

I just spoke with a woman who lives in Minnesota, who's visiting her relatives here. She says that a supporter of the protesters managed to record a phone conversation with Governor Shitheel in which he acknowledged he'd considered planting agents provocateurs among the protesters in order to provoke violence and justify a crackdown. The only reason he didn't was because of the potential political consequences (even the cops support the protesters). Shows what kinda guy he is.

Oops, make that Wisconsin. Us coastal dwellers tend to mix up those flyover states.
