Pause to remember a great man

With Zeyad's original post on this topic now buried and with February coming to a close, we should pause and reflect on one of the giants of the American labor movement. Many of you may recall that A. Philip Randolph founded the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters in 1925, when a black Pullman car porter was required to work at least 400 hours a month to qualify for a paycheck, but less known is that Randolph and his brothers struggled for 12 years before their union was recognized in 1937.

Budget deal cuts benefits to some vets: Heartless or painless?

(MORE)
The November 15th column in the Toledo Free Press made hay with stories of doom from outside Toledo. In the story a unnamed developer (some source) stated that some businesspeople and suburban partners (again who and how many?) are concerned about the new Toledo Mayor Collins. Ironically most of jobs in the businesses the developer quoted were low wage unlivable jobs.

The Politicians Are Playing Games

Both political parties in this country are playing games with the American public. They feud and fuss with each other for public consumption, to try to make us believe they have real differences. They are both the same, controlled by corporate contributions. The Democrats and the Republicans are supported by the same interests whose only interest is in dividing the American people so they can keep their own power. If the public would unite for the common purpose we could topple the powers that are controlling the political process.

Let's Set Our Priorities Straight

Been doing a little arithmetic and found some shocking statistics. As of January 1, 2013, the population of the United States was 316,809,000. The defense spending of this country, approved by Congress, is $638 billion. The SNAP, food stamp, spending is $78 billion. That equals out to $2,013 dollars for every man, woman, and child for spending on defense. SNAP amounts to a spending of $246.21 for every man, woman, and child. The amount being spent for defense outweighs the spending for SNAP by a nearly 9 to 1 ratio.

Why All The Socialism, Obamacare, And Mandates That Force You To Buy Health Insurance?

Ever wonder how all this Socialism and mandate stuff with Obamacare got started? What ever gave Obama the idea he could force you to buy insurance? What makes him think he has the right to subsidize poor people’s insurance with your tax dollars? What Socialist model did he get all these oppressive ideas from?
