If you're a Democrat, you've heard a constant stream of speeches from Democratic electeds decrying income inequality. Since most Democratic electeds supported and signed and still support and sign "free" trade agreements that help corporations offshore high paying manufacturing jobs, we must assume that all of their income inequality clap trap is just empty rhetoric. I must also assume that you are not serious about fixing income inequality because you are tickled, gratified and fulfilled by merely getting Democrats in name only reelected! The reason for my assumption is that way back in 2012, I circulated a petition demanding that our electeds stop signing job killing "free" trade agreements and rescind the existing ones that people like Bill Clinton foisted on us. Your response was so poor (62 people who cared) that I closed the petition out in disgust!
Today, a gentleman decided to tweet out my closed petition which gave me hope that at least one person cared enough about his country to bring it to everyone's attention. All it takes is one person of courage to get things started so I have decided to re-open the petition. If you don't sign my petition this time around, a petition that will help fix many of America's problems, I don't want to hear any whining about income inequality!
Sign My Petition!
Our political system is broken! The only way we are going to get the kind of transformative change that brings back the American dream is for us to fight for the issues that are important to us. You can help fight for the American dream by visiting my Listen Here! Page.
On this holiday honoring Martin Luther King, I want you to read a couple of articles that I posted on this website about Dr. King. The first one is about his close ties with and support of the Union movement. The second one is about The March On Washington where Dr. King partnered with unions like the UAW in his fight for social justice.
Martin Luther King had a dream but that dream wasn't of the world that we have today. His dream was not of mass foreclosures, homelessness, hunger, outsourced jobs and political greed.
On this day, I am asking you to please sign my petition.
In light of the issue mentioned in the previous post that is apparently just another legacy of the Reagan administration, I decided to delay the Buy Strikes for a couple of postings. That will allow us to use another activist tool that could remedy part of Reagan's 30 yr. siege on the 99%. I'm going to post one heck of a petition here in the next few days!!
