Labor unions need to do more of this
“The one-day strike is being sparked by opposition to requests by ExxonMobil to obtain an exemption from millions of dollars in local property taxes”
Hundreds of East Baton Rouge school employees voted Tuesday night to walk out of work on Oct. 31. Instead of going to their schools, the employees plan to head downtown
The Democrats have already put over $60 million dollars into the Texas Senate race between Beto and Cruz, a race Cruz will easily win. If the Dems were smart they would have spent this money on competitive senate races in Nevada and Arizona, or on party building within red states. As much as I despise Cruz, he will win and other democrats will lose due to the waste of resources in Texas
We’re tracking how much U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke are raising in their Senate race.
I’ve heard some ridiculous arguments regarding teacher strikes and wage increases, asserting that because teachers get time off in the summer, it’s justifiable to pay them less. To that I say, what about Congress? In 2018 Congress is expected to be in office less than half of the work year! Talk about freeloaders. Never let a politician try to tell you about the virtues of hard work. Worst yet, Republicans demonize the working poor and scoff at the idea of minimum wage increases, all while they plan their next paid vacation on the government dole.
It’s a lot more than your average American worker.
“While profligate Pentagon spending doesn’t make the world more peaceful or more democratic, it does guarantee that the US government will be cash-strapped when it tries to fund vital public programs.”
The US military budget sucks up an enormous amount of resources without making the world more peaceful or democratic. Here are a few ways we could better spend that $717 billion.
Here’s the right-wing long-game strategy.
1. Secure a Wall Street-friendly Supreme Court for a generation by seating Kavanaugh
2. Create a major recession starting in 2019
3. Impeach and remove Trump. Replace with Pence
4. Blame Congressional Democrats for the 2019-2020 recession
5. Use recession to win Presidency, Congress, and 34 Governor Mansions
6. Constitutional Convention to re-write the document as billionaire oligarchs desire. Democracy effectively dies
7. Implement extreme Fascist policies
(Please note that Step 6 removes any possible path to a peaceful revolution).
Here’s the deal. Either Democrats win big in 2018 and 2020 or it’s not going to be good for 99.5% of the population.
The Republicans pitch for re-election is that they won’t investigate Trumps corruption. So much for drain the swamp 🤷🏻♂️
It’s not a short list.
