Joplin, Mo., one year after the killer tornado ... a visit with some of the survivors, and stories of rebuilding

1 post / 0 new

CBS Sunday Morning had a story on the 5/13/12 episode about Ruben Carter, an employee of a gas station in Joplin, who saved the lives of 24 others with his quick thinking during the EF-5 tornado that killed about 160 people. This was one case where having a person being "underemployed" proved to be a life saver for those around him at a critical time. Lee Cowan reports for CBS :

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
