It has no street credibility. Not even a demonstration...some civil disobedience...waving of flag and occupation of an office or two.


The Indy Dems have a hard time getting the message out. Fought the long hard fight against ""Right To Work"" and lost. Fought hard against School vouchers again lost. Been losing local and state elections so are in a state of flux right now. The people want to believe the Repubs fairy tales of mythical job creators. Problem now is in what country they are created in.

On this particular issue the Indy Dems need help from above. But those above are wearing two hats.

A way to get help is by taking peacefully to the streets with civil disobedience
to draw attention and embarrass the powers that be into some action.

I note where Carrier has huge federal contracts.

The vast majority of the workforce have been brainwashed. Thinking good paying union jobs are the reason they are being underpaid. Told, look at those lazy overpaid union guys who can't get fired need to taken down. Not that you need to brought up to the union scale.

This is a slow process taking many years to come to this point. Every time we pay a bill online go thru the self checkout lane order online more people lose jobs that will never come back.

Yep, that song came out in 1983.

That shows you how long we have been in decline.
