Joe Burns, author of the book, Reviving The Strike: How Working People Can Regain Power and Transform America. .

This is a must-read book, in my opinion. Joe is a labour lawyer with tons of experience and knowledge with regards to unions. I had an opportunity to interview him for my radio show. He talks about the lack of effective strikes in the U.S. Thom, if you are reading this, you might want to consider interviewing Joe for your show.

Check out my interview with Joe. http://bobcarson13.podomatic.com/player/web/2011-06-13T03_38_35-07_00

Kate, of Late

Kate of late has changed attire
to costumes and a hat much higher,
thus her flowing locks require
more control than in the shire.

The Queen shall have to have it changed.
Braided, coiled, rearranged-
a French Twist, Bun, or Pony Tail
won't fly away, or catch a nail.

Prince and Princess are quite normal
except for the exquisite formal
philanthropic gowns well spent
since they save a lot on rent.

Which is More Violent, The Bible or The Koran?

I am always hearing right wing Christian Republicans talking about how much more violent the Koran is compared to the Bible. What? Having read both the Bible and the Koran front to back I just did not see what they were talking about. Out of cuorisity I decide to do a quick analysis and see what I came up with.

A Day in the Life of an Educator

Tax attorney no expert

Last week Mr. Hartmann interviewed a tax lawyer who professed to be an expert on tax policy and the economic pros and cons of tax cuts v. tax increases. This clown's position was that taxes are too high, and we should liberalize deductions for charitable contributions so that non-profits can perform the role of government.

Puerto Rico needs help stopping gas pipeline which will destroy forrests

I'm trying to put the word out any way i can about this, i'll attach an interview on Democracy Now which will help you understand the situation and maybe youll help us and make some noise. We are an island with abundant sun, water and wind. We could easily be energy oil independent or at least greatly reduce this dependency at a fraction of the cost, both monetary and ecological, that this gas pipeline will produce.

breath and calm yourself because what you'll see there is disturbing.

Dominique, mon bon Pere

Operation Dominique has the hallmarks of a Texan plan to take over the Head of The World Bank.

1. Foremost, the fracas is constructed according to the textbook rules for creating an act of devastating discreditment, a device which has been used more than a century by the unsound financial community, against bankers who are often pushed to the brink and sometimes completion of suicide. The device has also been used to coerce disposition and control of personal assets, blocking the normal path to protection from extortion by virtue of law.

Republican Economic Conspiracy

If Republicans really are trying to inflict economic hardship on Americans in an effort to win back the white house (e.g. Congressional Republicans frustrating employment gains at the state levels) then I’m not sure it really exonerates Obama from successfully persevering with the economy anyway.

How do we export Houses

I perplexes me that if we are in a World Economy; how can we depend on housing to run the economy? Can't export them. Maybe we can sell them to foreigners like we have done with Office buildings, (meet your new neighbor Salem bin Laden, "W's" first business partner) Corporations, Hotels, toll roads, transportation operations (bus and trains in metroplexes ) and other US property and operations. Do we still own the Grand Canyon, Statute Of Liberty and other historical sights? One side bar, Rep.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

Thom plus logo

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
