Unconfirmed reports say that Koch Industries is already running job advertisements to hire Managers to help run State Owned Utilities. A major contributor to Scott Walker's election campaign, Koch Industries has yet to release any information on its new Utility rates. At this time, the impending sales price of these facilities was not being released by the Governor's Office.
Already stunned at having perceived a devastating earthquake minutes before it happened, what could be more climactic than seeing Mr. and Mrs. Evan Bayh on my television commenting from the site of the event at ChristChurch where they happened to have been visiting? Did I see that? Did you see it Barrett? Did you see it Baker and Daniels and Shoaff, as Evan Bayh did? How about thee, Helmke and Beams, Beers, Mallers, Backs and Salin, K.W. Maxfield, of Counsel? Or you, Morgana Fata, Ewing LeFay?
I used to manage at a resteraunt. We used to not let our waitstaff refer to the customers as customers. We made them refer to them as guest because we wanted to change the way they thought about our patrons. We wanted them to give good service just as if they were a guest in our home. Anytime we heard a wait person use the word customer, we would stop them in mid sentence and correct them.after a while they would stop using the word customer and started using the word guest. along with the language change , came a mindset change.
this IS a martin luther king moment--just read nichols in the nation and saw jesse jackson say we're all marching into DC ....
this is what i've been hoping for--honoring martin luther king's realization that the civil rights struggle against racism led logically to the civil and human rights for all races everywhere for economic justice. i seem to remember this as 'the poor people's' campaign' though i could be wrong....old hippies have long term memory probs added to their short-term ones--ha.
I contacted the AFSCME Wisconsin Online Action Center to let them know I support their struggle and they wrote back to say they could use help with donations if anyone is able.

Jackson Lewis presents itself as a reputable "national workplace law firm," yet under its polished veneer lies a for-profit unionbuster. In fact, Jackson Lewis is one of the oldest and largest union avoidance law firms in the nation. Jackson Lewis counsels businesses on labor relations strategies that prevent unions from entering the workplace. By operating in the shadows of corporate unionbusting campaigns, the firm remains virtually unknown to the general public.
Libertarianism is essentially a reactionary philosophy, in the sense of being contrary to the goals of the French Revolution. As Karl Marx pointed out to the anarchist Proudhon, it is impossible to argue that current arrangements (then or now) we find within society can be thought of as being neutral in respect to the quality of expressing either pre- or post- revolutionary political legitimacy.
For those of you not from the Bay Area or are waaaay too young to remember, Tuesday was "Red's Tamales Day." When I was a kid, they were great. I remember you would boil them (pre-microwave), peeled the "husks" off (actually it was paper and you'd boil them in the can) and it was great after school snack. As I recall there wasn't any real meat in them just a reddish sauce that pretended to be and sorta kinda tasted like meat but wasn't. But as a youngster, I didn't know the difference anyway so who cares?
Rather than a statement I have a question perhaps two of them. Is there such a thing as financial terrorism applied through fear and intimidation? Is the Republican Party a terrorist organisation?

I attended the Denver rally in support of Wisconsin workers, and against corporations taking over the country/elections, etc. It was a decent showing on a sunny day. Some good signs. Then there was the group of tea baggers with the drums and fifes shouting about not wanting their tax money going toward unions. I wonder how they will like it when the govt shuts down March 4 and they have no social security checks, etc.? Maybe they will get it then. The crowds began yelling at each other, so perhaps we'll get more media coverag
