1. Why We Need a True Left Rather than the “D”-Party (Hedges & Street) ***

… one that starts organizing from the ground, allying with people in need, boosting them, and growing a political movement from there rather than bickering about a twittering corrupt president in a totally corrupt upper structure that he is a natural product of.

Illegal Aliens! Heeeeeeeelp!

aliens-bsw

Certain low wage workers nowadays are labeled illegal and non-human. They are referred to as “illegal aliens”. A label based on them working north of our southern border as opposed to south of it, even though the same business owners either employ them south of it or north of it with the exact same result: that they get the work that makes them richer done by people desperate enough to work for starvation wages under terrible working conditions.

This creates a justified worry among American-born working people that the jobs they need are taken away or hurtfully reduced in wages and benefits, destroying their American Dream. However, the flip in responsibility is brainwashed into their minds by claiming these even more desperate fellow workers from the south TAKE their jobs away, rather than that the business owners (and/or their CEOs) GIVE them away.

Have you ever been able to TAKE a job that wasn’t offered to you?  Continue reading “Illegal Aliens! Heeeeeeeelp!”

This speech that goes over so many things really deserves a special place.

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses — to be Shot Dead!

You may have heard of the young woman who tried to cross the border and was shot in the head for it. It’s now death penalty for crossing a border without a visa. That’s the America of today. And she is not the first or the last.

What a contrast to the preceding centuries of America’s existence, when immigrants were invited by the millions to cheaply build our canals and rail roads, to work our mines and factories under deplorable conditions, to speed up the growth of our country and our industrial revolution, not to mention the wealth of the infamous robber barons and their growing rigged economy, built to make them rich and the rest of us poor — a system that lasts until today and is getting worse again.   Continue reading “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses — to be Shot Dead!”
