Liberal "progressives" are misinformed

Statism does not work never has and never will. Self reliance hard work and smaller government is what made the middle class and will continue to do so providing "liberals" and government will stay the hell out of the way.

Raising revenue by augmenting harassment of unemployed college grads?!

Management VS Workers = Why Conservatives Hate Unions - other than the FEAR of STRIKERS!

Those that fill in the R names while voting , will NEVER EVER get it till it hits them , and then , they will turn on fox news , and see that it was , those people's fault !


The Labor Trail: The Chicago Center for Working-Class Studies

Chicago has a rich industrial history with many working-class neighborhoods. The Labor Trail is a project of the Chicago Center for Working-Class Studies. There is an interactive map available on the Web site, labortrail.org, and the map can also be ordered in a printed version. It was completed with assistance from staff members of Chicago's famed Neberry Library, a private academic research and rare book library in the humanities.

"Many of (these) lawmakers have since either taken transparently political votes to cut clean energy programs or have denounced all clean energy grants as fraudulent."
