Question for those against unions: "What is the Chamber of Commerce"?

Answer: It's a UNION of Business Owners.

Next Question: If the Owners of businesses can unionize, why can't the Workers?


Just heard this from Norman Goldman on his show on WCPT. Chicago AM Progressive Station.

As he said, it's a great way to get them thinking.

Scary: Did Hillary really laugh about getting a child rapist off?

This has bothered me since I heard of it a few days ago. I promise, I skipped ALL the Right Wing blogs on this article and went to Daily Beast.

Thanks to WiKiLeaks, Americans can discuss Alarming new trade deal

David Cay Johnston

Wikileaks last week again pierced the veil of official secrecy that surrounds global trade negotiations. The peek it gave us should alarm everyone.

Big Business and national governments wanted to conceal the terms of the proposed Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) while keeping consumers, unions, environmentalists and the vast majority of businesses in the dark. Thanks to Wikileaks, they failed.

Hello Utah Dems..I need a little information, if you would be so kind

The spouse and I have just come back from trips to Bryce Canyon & Zion Nat'l Park, and have

fallen completely in love with the area, so much so that we feel we may have to live near

there (or the Canyon lands) for at least PART of the year (we're nearing retirement)

so we'd like to know if there are ANY at least somewhat liberal places near there -- places

where we won' have Mormons proselytizing us as neither of us is very religious.

A point of irony is, I actually have Mormon cousins who were raised in Utah..I last saw one

a few years ago and he was hopelessly conservative and racist. The rest of our

family are not Mormon and were raised in the Northeast part of the country and are liberal.

What's a star crossed lover to do?

More Workers convicted of Animal Cruelty at DiGiorno Cheese Supplier

By Vandhana Bala

WBF Rough Handling 06.jpgTwo more workers have been convicted of animal cruelty following an undercover investigation by Mercy For Animals at Wiese Brothers Farms in Wisconsin. Crescencio Pineda and Misael Monge-Minero were caught on hidden-camera viciously kicking and whipping cows, beating them the face and body, and using machinery to cruelly hoist sick or injured cows into the air. They have been ordered to pay a total of $1,322 in fines.

The undercover video footage led to the conviction of two other workers at the facility a few weeks ago. In total, four workers have been charged and convicted of cruelty to animals at this dairy factory farm. At the time of the investigation, Wiese Brothers was a dairy supplier to DiGiorno brand frozen pizza.

Watch the shocking undercover video that led to the convictions here:

What's especially ugly, not to mention bizarre, is hearing the abusers call the cows "cunts" and "whores" while they beat them.
