Trump, America's Biggest Troll

NO Friend of Workers... NO Friend of Unions... NO Friend of Railroads... How or Why some would support this troll is unimaginable. When it comes to wowing workers, Donald Trump is an absolute magician. Through some mysterious sorcery, he has convinced millions of American workers that he is their true friend, fighting hard for them, even though he and his appointees have taken one anti-worker action after another—dozens of them.

The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa

The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa By David Macaray | CounterPunch | Following is an article from one of our favorite magazine journals, CounterPunch, a periodical chocked with deep-seated investigative reporting that speaks to progressive politics and civil liberties. Lately there has been so much hype surrounding the the life and death of Jimmy Hoffa. The Martin Scorsese Netflix movie “The Irishman” attempts to chart the events of the day Hoffa disappeared in a way that you somehow yield to them not as a flight of fancy but as the reconstruction of an established truth. This author felt necessary to put facts into perspective, removing Scorsese’s glamorization of one-time Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa and identifying the union and it’s leadership for what it was - corrupt, anti-democratic and dirty.

This Is Why America Doesn’t Have High Speed Trains

A decade ago, the US was promised high-speed rail—so where is it? In 2009, US train enthusiasts received some of the best news since 1886, the year the country finally agreed to use the same rail gauge nationwide. US president Barack Obama had a plan to revitalize the floundering US economy—and rail was a big part of it. Not since the days of 19th century railroad tycoons had there been so much opportunity—or cash—for US trains. Some 39 states leapt at the opportunity: Between them, the District of Columbia, and Amtrak, nearly 500 applications competed for the roughly $10.1 billion total pot available for rail projects. (Approving them all would have cost in the region of $75 billion.)

Bernie Sanders on Joe Rogan

Bernie Sanders interviewed by Joe Rogan, who does more for democracy than CNN, MSNBC and Fox News put together, showing us how utterly useless and obsolete corporate media has become. A real conversation, a genuine addressing of America’s issues and solutions unlike the snarky tweets and demonizing rhetoric from the narcissistic orange menace.

Workers Memorial Day 2019

Preventing workplace deaths will take a lot more than ceremonies and mock funerals and roses. It will take more than cleverly crafted slogans and meme’s or eye-catching tee shirts. It will take the insistence of workers to insure that there are more inspectors, more enforcement, more penalties, and more involvement by administrators. It will take workers actively organizing, at the polls, in the workplace and in the community if we’re going to be successful in realizing our goal, the end to workplace deaths and illnesses. It will take the open opposition of our government and our department of labor who currently embrace a philosophy of less – less regulation, less enforcement, less fines.

Health and Safety Study, Summary Report
