    Corporations started beating back the working class (union workers) back in the 60′s. Demonized unions. To the point where many young people had little to no idea about what unions were about. The merge between many progressives (many of them also unaware of the history of unions) and labor the last 10 or so years has been a beautiful evolution.

    I keep thinking about how to engage the older union members in our country to inspire the youth. Documentary, commercials about how these folks were able to pull themselves up by their boot straps because of unions, fair wages, collective bargaining.

    Middle class so beat down. Banksters etc happy to keep it that way. Does not leave much time to be keeping tabs on your elected leaders and government. Too busy figuring out how to pay the bills.

    Met a former (laid off) GM worker the other day who was applying for a job at Wal Mart (really) where his eighteen year old daughter was working. You have heard those “I’m so happy to have a job” stories on Npr “So happy to have a job, any job” This represents the recovery. Yikes.

    Have been wondering for two solid years why Obama team has not come out with a Government Works Program? A new “WPA” Guess he kept believing his team

    Feingold over Walker. Not even a contest. Think the folks that voted for Walker were forced to take their heads out of where the sun never shines.

    And ever since the invasion we have heard the same unsubstantiated claims about Iran repeated on all of these outlets. Not only allow guest to repeat the claims about Iran, Terri Gross and Rachel Maddow repeat those claims themselves. Oh we have come along way baby.

    Cole, Ritter, Jason Vest of the Nation, El Baradei (Niger documents forgeries in early March of 2003) many others out in front of the invasion questioning the validity of the intelligence.

    The Rehm show has had Juan Cole on 2 times . Don’t think they had him on before the invasion. I believe she had Scott Ritter on before the invasion

    Rachel Maddow had Cole on

    More interviews with Prof Cole

    Not many MSM outlets had Cole on before the invasion when he and so many others were putting out very substantive reasons for questioning the validity of the WMD intelligence..”pack of lies”

    Our MSM was busy having Wolfowitz, Perle, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice, Feith, Ledeen, Reul Marc Gerect, Micheal Rubin, Chertoff…repeating all of the deadly false WMD intelligence on their programs. How often did you see or hear Cole, Hersh, Ritter, El Baradei on any of these news outlets?

    Why would Risen feed this critical story through the bloody New York Times. You remember the very msm outlet that allowed Judy “I was fucking right” Miller to use false intelligen­ce about WMD’s in Iraq stories to fill their front pages. Is Risen trying to help the NYT redeem themselves­?

    Why not feed this story through blogs and individual­s who were questionin­g the validity of the WMD intelligen­ce? Why choose the NYT to release this story through. The NYT is drowning in the Iraqi people and American soldiers blood. Feed it to reliable blogs.

    The only way for the NYT to redeem itself if to dig deep into the situation with Iran, focus on the NIE’s on Iran. Tell the truth about the I/P conflict and stop repeating what Israel and the I lobby tell them to report. Their only way to redeem themselves for the false WMD reporting
