Sweat Shop Wages Thirty-Two Years Of Reaganomics – Continues With Obama As President


We are workers who need a living wage.

When Obama talks about economic numbers what he really is talking about is how well investors are doing financially; he never talks about workers and their ability to pay their living expenses or own their own home. When Obama gives his’ speeches on the state of the economy he’s being disingenuous what he doesn’t tell the American people is that there’s two economies the one he always refers to is the rich people the top 2%; he never refers to the working class where 98& of us reside. Obama refers to the top 2% because they line his’pockets with gold sad but true. I Am A Labor Trying To Feed My Family  Obama is a Blue Dog Democrat and when he gives his’ public speeches he chooses his’ words carefully to intentionally miss lead the American People. The President talks a good game; he even blast his Republican rivals to put on an act, but he agrees with them on many issues like Free Trade and expanding our military presence all over the global we have become the world police protecting the trade routes of the transnational corporations. The Free Trade Agreement have been a night mire for the North American working class because it forces the American worker to compete against workers in 3rd and 4th world countries where the people live in subhuman conditions, no running water, no bathrooms, the people are suffering from malnutrition and dying young from serious illnesses from the poor diet. Multiple family living in 12 X 12 rooms very crowded conditions, and dirt roads with no transportation.

These giant global corporations violate human rights, no labor laws to obey, no child labor laws, no minimum wage laws, no overtime laws, and workers aren’t allowed to organize. In fact the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United States Chamber of Commerce are behind this effort to take away all human rights from the working class creating  a Dictatorship Maxist Socialist World By Global Corporations. This classless society will have no human rights or any political muscle. Small business owners across North American should be outraged at these actions and small business owners should band together and leave the Chamber of Commerce because they aren’t defending your interest. Small business should come together and create their own social network to challenge corporate domination. Americans should be outraged. How Much Do Workers Earn In Third World Countries This will stock you the working conditions and their standard of living. These are sub-human conditions without any hope or human rights.

These workers have quotas they must meet meanings 16 to 20 hours days of work without enough rest, often sleeping in the factory to keep up with the demands of production, and if they fall behind schedule they ‘ll be beaten brutally by their foreman. Often these workers are cheated out of their wages, and they’re taxed unlawfully these global corporations rob these of their wages workers. These are crime that go unpunished and no one is ever brought to justice. They pollute the drinking water they contaminate the food supply they cause illnesses they even cause death, and where’s the world’s outcry for these innocent people. No one seems to care as longest as it’s not in their backward or effected by this directly.

Republicans Accidentally Vote To End Welfare-To-Work Requirements | Addicting Info


Republicans Accidentally Vote To End Welfare-To-Work Requirements | Addicting Info.

The Workforce Investment Improvement Act, a bill spearheaded by Republican Representatives Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Joseph J. Heck, (R-NV), and Buck McKeon (R-CA), would allow states to group state and federal employment/training programs, such as TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), into a single fund. However, this has an apparently unforeseen side effect–it would take away federally mandated requirements for the programs.

That is the result found, at least, by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. The CRS is sometimes known as “Congress’ think tank” because of their nonpartisan policy and legal analysis services.

The funny thing here is that it is generally the conservatives in the government that are screaming about leftists all wanting a free lunch. By trying to accomplish their government-consolidation aims, they have, in effect, done exactly what they try to accuse President Barack Obama of. Talking Points Memo points out the irony:

“I don’t think the TANF work requirements were what they had in mind when they were working on the Foxx bill,” says Elizabeth Lower-Basch of the Center for Law and Social Policy. “But it is sort of a collateral consequence.”

According to a brief written by CLASP, for the House Education and Workforce Committee hearing on the bill in June, the bill also “eliminates many of the requirements and mandates that governed the now consolidated streams.” The committee cleared the bill anyway.

That, of course, is exactly what Republicans are falsely claiming the Obama administration’s state waivers would do. In reality, those waivers are only on offer to states that can demonstrate that they have or will increase the number of people transitioning from welfare to work by at least 20 percent.

They go on to point out that, “The GOP’s legislation has no such safeguards. According to the Congressional Research Service analysis of the bill published this month, ‘[I]f TANF funds were consolidated into the [Workforce Investment Fund], TANF program requirements (e.g., work requirements) may no longer apply to that portion of funding because the TANF funding would not exist (i.e., it would be part of the WIF and thus subject to WIF program requirements).’”

A humorous situation indeed.

Fired Elections Officials Sue Ohio Secretary of State For Wrongful Termination | ThinkProgress


Fired Elections Officials Sue Ohio Secretary of State For Wrongful Termination | ThinkProgress.

Two Montgomery County board of election members are suing Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted for wrongful termination after they voted to allow early voting on weekends. Husted immediately suspended and then fired them for defying his state-wide directive restricting voting to weekdays only. Dennis Lieberman and Tom Ritchie, who have served on the board for a collective 28 years, filed the federal lawsuit Monday morning. Besides accusing Husted of wrongful termination, the two Democrats are asking for a temporary reinstatement as the Montgomery County elections board comes up against the September 11 deadline to hire new members in order to continue operations. Husted is currently grappling with multiple lawsuits against his office and is appealing a recent decision to restore early voting on the three-day period before Election Day.

Unhappy Anniversary: Republicans Have Blocked The American Jobs Act For One Year


Unhappy Anniversary: Republicans Have Blocked The American Jobs Act For One Year.

aldron on Sep 7, 2012 at 11:15 am

On September 8, 2011 — one year ago tomorrow — President Obama laid out a series of policy proposals known collectively as the American Jobs Act. The plan included stimulus spending in the form of immediate infrastructure investments, tax credits for working Americans and employers to encourage consumer spending and job growth, and efforts to shore up state and local budgets to prevent further layoffs of teachers, firefighters, police officers, and other public safety officials.

The American Jobs Act never became law, however, because Republicans opposed it from the start, blasting it as another form of “failed stimulus” that wouldn’t help the economy. (They ignored the fact that the first “failed stimulus,” the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, wasn’t a failure at all.) One month later, the GOP blocked the bill in the Senate, preventing the creation of more than a million jobs and the added growth that multiple economists predicted would occur if the bill passed:

–Moody’s Analytics estimated the American Jobs Act would create 1.9 million jobs and add two percent to gross domestic product.

–The Economic Policy Institute estimated it would create 2.6 million jobs and

Court Blocks Texas Voter ID Law, Citing Racial Impact – NYTimes.com.

WASHINGTON — A federal court on Thursday struck down a Texas law that would have required voters to show government-issued photo identification before casting their ballots in November, ruling that the law would hurt turnout among minority voters and impose “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor” by charging those voters who lack proper documentation fees to obtain election ID cards.

The three-judge panel in United States District Court for the District of Columbia called Texas’ voter-identification law the most stringent of its kind in the country. Gov. Rick Perry and the state’s attorney general, Greg Abbott, vowed to appeal the decision to the United States Supreme Court.

The judges’ ruling came two days after another three-judge panel in the same court found that the Texas Legislature had intentionally discriminated against minority voters in drawing up electoral district maps, citing the same section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Known as Senate Bill 14, the state’s voter-identification law requires voters who show up at the polls to identify themselves with one of five forms of ID, including a driver’s license or a United States passport. Those lacking one of the five types of identification must obtain an election identification certificate, a government-issued card similar to a driver’s license. Prospective voters would need to travel to a state Department of Public Safety office to get an election ID card, and, although it is free, they would have to verify their identity to obtain one, in some cases paying $22 for a certified copy of their birth certificate.

In its unanimous 56-page ruling, the federal judges found that the fees and the cost of traveling for those voters lacking one of the five forms of ID disproportionately affected the poor and minorities. “Moreover, while a 200- to 250-mile trip to and from a D.P.S. office would be a heavy burden for any prospective voter, such a journey would be especially daunting for the working poor,” the decision read, referring to the dozens of counties in Texas that do not have a D.P.S. office.

Mr. Perry and other Texas Republicans had argued that voter identification laws were constitutional methods of preventing voter fraud, and they believed the courts could not legally consider factors like poverty when determining whether a law complies with the Voting Rights Act.

Mr. Perry criticized the judges and the Obama administration. “Chalk up another victory for fraud,” he said in a statement. “Today, federal judges subverted the will of the people of Texas and undermined our effort to ensure fair and accurate elections.”

The United States attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., who had told the N.A.A.C.P. in July that the Texas law’s requirements amounted to a poll tax, praised the ruling. “The court’s decision today and the decision earlier this week on the Texas redistricting plans not only reaffirm — but help protect — the vital role the Voting Rights Act plays in our society to ensure that every American has the right to vote and to have that vote counted,” he said in a statement.

The wave of voter ID laws enacted by Republican-led state governments in recent years has created a polarizing debate.

Supporters, mostly conservatives, argue that such restrictions are needed to prevent fraud. While there is no evidence of significant levels of voter impersonation — the sort of fraud that would be addressed by ID requirements — they argue that it is just going undetected. But critics, mostly liberals, say voter impersonation fraud is rare and contend that the restrictions are a veiled effort to suppress turnout by legitimate voters who are less likely to have a photo ID card and who tend to support Democrats, like students, the indigent and minorities.

Mr. Perry signed the voter identification bill in May, but it had not taken effect because Texas and other states with a history of racial discrimination cannot make changes to their voting procedures without first receiving so-called preclearance, a requirement under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.

The case could add to pressure on the question of whether Section 5 of the act is still constitutional. The Supreme Court, which is already hearing an affirmative action case in its coming term, is deciding whether to review an appeals court decision upholding the Voting Rights Act in the face of a constitutional challenge by Alabama. Texas is also challenging the constitutionality of the law in the voter ID case, one of a handful of states to do so recently, including Florida and Alaska.

What Is Europe’s Problem?


February 9, 2012 in Uncategorized by Anarchadia

‎” It starts with “thou shall not kill”, then it is “thou shall not kill your neighbor”, then  ”thou shall not kill if that person has lots of money and resources to corrupt you”… and it finishes with, “God is with us, we can go and invade Iraq!”
– Christophe Alévêque

Many of us are too busy putting up with new false ideologies, Mass Media Disinformation, as well as our own lives, to be able to discern real information from that which is false. There is also the National versus Global “problem” (Countries don’t necessarily share the same News, even though they all belong to the same companies, through advertising and financing), which technically censors non-corporate mass communication and still divides the World, between Mass Monetarism and Non-Monetarism (I assure you, it even divides China). It’s all much more subtle now, because obviously the criminals of today, have had a lot of homework to study up on… and so do we!

Europe is being divided just as America, Russia, China, and mostly every other Developed Country in the World; except in America we are one of the least educated Countries in the World, so truth easily wears thin, and debilitates public opinion to the point of supporting the most phony crooks this World has ever set eyes on. Some say Fascism regained its power when Allen Dulles (a Nazi Supporter) assassinated Kennedy, after getting fired by Kennedy. Dulles surprisingly got his job back after Kennedy was killed, was on the Commission which investigated Kennedy, and helped start the career of George W. Bush. Others will argue that Fascism never left America, since the early days of Henry Ford (a nazi supporter). I personally think that Fascism is just a tool of all Oligarchs, whether they be Monarchs or the very rich hiding behind their Corporations, Trademarks, and Monetary Opportunists. Monarchies and Corporations function the same way… they are trademarks, backed by Capital Interest. When the English people speak about their Monarchy, they glorify it as an “amazing” trademark, which is good for stability… give me a break! They are just as amazing as Nike, who exploited enslaved children for 0.30 cents a pair of shoes, to then tell the World how much money they were making. “Amazing”!

The British Monarchy as well as the Austrian Monarchy were Fascist at some point, and some of them fully supported the Nazis. Edward VIII had to abdicated because he was a strong public supporter of Hitler. But nothing was said about George VI, and his personal ideologies. We can give them the benefit of believing in their personalized stochastic versions of History, or we can maybe imagine that the U.K Monarchy had to turn against Fascism. Fascism was unpopular in the U.K as well as the U.S (maybe because the money making War Profit Machine had already started). Hitler never bombed the British Monarchy, he said it was just to scare the Monarchs, but Fascism would have been advantageous to the already rottingly corrupt Monarchy, its Aristocracy and Bourgeoisie (remember Charles Dickens?).

Unspun News On Facebook Since 2010

Maybe this sudden change in Monarchs, had more to do with the “Business plan” in America which failed in 1933, and gave force to the War Loving FDR. The U.K knew that if America ever went to War against UK Monarchist Fascism (as was the Spanish Monarchy, backed by the Vatican, and Italian Government), the Monarchy would be obliterated by historical American sentiment against the U.K Crown. Strong feelings die hard. MI6 and the CIA might state a different story, but we all know who MI6 works for, as well as the CIA: Corporate Interest (not for the little guys and girls).

So in all this there is a trend, and even if we cannot prove it through judicial paper work (since America invented the paper shredder), maybe we can at least admit that the wealthy have been systemically greedy, as some public schools used to teach our kids (with Buddha, Robin Hood and Charles Dickens… the big movie studios are even going to capitalize on Dickens again, as did Sir. Charles for this year’s Charles Dickens anniversary).

Just keep in mind that Fascism resurfaced right after WWII, with the CIA backing Right-Wing Movements, while discrediting those on the Left (Hitler had done the exact same thing, when he won the elections of 1933). Here specialists will iterate the Communist Threat, except that Hitler was just as much against Communism as America was before/after World War II. What is the primordial difference between Fascism and Communism? None. Both were populist fronts used to sell weapons and make War. These Governments might have supported a few good ideas we can learn from, but they were just as murderous and opportunistic when it came to money as the Fascists were. In principle, Socialism/Christianity was for equality, and against monetary inequality, while Fascism is very much like Anarcho-Capitalism aspires to be today (the rich do as they please, which has been the case of Socialist Governments as well as Christian Institutions, the same can be said about Islam or any other Religion; they were all corrupted at some point or another by Capitalism).

Propaganda Due which existed from 1945-1976 helped Italy’s Right Wing pulverize the Left from 1976 to 1981, Propaganda Due implicates three international celebrities: Berlusconi, Sarcozy (who was his Lawyer), and Putin, who just like George Bush, must have been CIA assets, or at least on the same side (that of Fascism ever since Dulles, and maybe even before). The CIA also backed Right-Wing Coups with the Hollywood style Italian Elections of 1948.

Anyway let us skip forward to today. What do Merkel, Sarcozy, Berlusconi, Obama, George Bush, Margaret Thatcher, Reagan, etc… all share in common? They support the Right Wing, and are simply Centrist Populist Opportunists, who work for the Corporations, who in turn, work for the very rich (who puppeteer us all, it is the case of saying it, just look how old the British Monarchy’s Family Lineage is, these folks had to lie out of their asses ). Never forget that the Austrian Monarchy taught the U.K Monarchy not to go too far in the age of popular votes. The U.K Fascists had learned from their Ancestors mistakes, and were in full throttle to export it to America.

Angela Merkel and Sarcozy have been floating around together these last few months, on televisions saying the same thing: “More Austerity, cut public sector jobs”. They state that they are even ready to kick out Greece and Portugal from the E.U because of their own Fascism. And if anyone criticizes them, they say they are being affronted by the threats of Nationalist/Fascists. Maybe on TV those repeated lies work, but not near any critical-thinking minority (not all people have the time to identify when they are being lead into Fascism, no matter how rich and innocent they are, because Fascists talked about the poor all of the time, only to tax them more like they want to do on us today), enslave them, kill, ex-propriate and famish others. You know the drill! Its a natural recurrence in man, its Fascism!

Therefore when these Countries talk about Greece and Portugal’s debt (behind their backs on Mainstream Corporate Networks), the Fascists want to kick out Countries who refuse to remove more of their Public Sector. They always have wanted to replace Public Services with privatization and Big Chain Hotels, which will impoverish them. America used those policies these past 40 years and look at use we are the most indebted Countri in the World). While the E.U is ready to allow Countries like Croatia (which is an expensive tourist trap compared to Greece), into its Fascist Union. The European Bank is Centralized just like the FED, and even if these Unions broke up, it would actually make prices cheaper, while expanding the Black and Grey Market profits for those who can invest in them. It is common knowledge that those who invest in War get very rich.

And to conclude this rather long debacle I would like to speak of my opinion about France, since many Countries in Europe, Eurasia, South America, and Africa are facing the same threat:

The only reason Sarcozy is even credited as a good candidate, is because his only “real” competition is the Fascist Party itself. Same in Russia against Putin, America with Rand Paul/Ron Paul (currently Obama but he doesn’t have the popular support anymore), and et cetera. Anarchists all over the World are censored, even for what they have to say. Simply because true Anarchism in not for profit, it is a revolutionary evolution within the psyche of man, and has been around for thousands of years… which is a very different image from what most History books state. Anarchists are simply minorities who speak out not behind an ideology, but against oppression they themselves felt. Most Anarchists are pacifists, and are much more patient and peaceful than any of your Government Leaders or their Bankers. Truth is not that difficult to find, unless you have Julius Caesar types who think they can redominate this World, with “divide and conquer”. Divide and conquer works, but it needs War to kill competition, or else it is quickly attacked as a deceitful lie. And people in this World are sick and tired of seeing people dying and hungry, just so that a few assholes can take the credit for everything their billions of slaves have made.

‎” Religion is like any elite. You have the pope, who declares something. The Apostles listen and go out repeating the declaration of the pope, which they memorized. Then you have what is called the people of the church, who interpret what the Apostles told them, but still it is always memorized. Finally you have the “believers” (who ironically believe not what they have to say, but what they themselves memorized, courtesy of the church), who go out and indoctrinate people who have no means to think, like most of us (only because we are worked so much we are stupid and lower class, and must have nothing better to do). So then these stupid people are convinced that it is wise to repeat what they heard from “believers”. Those same “believers”, who had memorized what the Apostles said, who in turn had to memorize what the Pope declared. ”

Thank Senator Mark Leno for championing SB 810 at Senator.Leno@Senate.CA.gov. We do not want to tie up his phones. It is important to thank legislators when they champion our cause, and not just spank them when they do not.

Help Build a Stronger Movement – Order SB 810 Postcards, direct new people to our website, and consider becoming a monthly contributor to Single Payer Now.

Please order SB 810 postcards. They ask Governor Brown to pass SB 810. The legislation will again be introduced in 2013. Asking new people to sign a postcard is wonderful way to have a discussion about the merits of single payer healthcare. We add the names to our action alert list to keep activists engaged in the campaign for universal healthcare.
