Michigan and Florida Unionists Picket DNC Headquarters
    #8282366 - 04/14/08 03:54 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A DNC picket line


My colleague John Bresnahan emails that there are 50-60 union members from Florida and Michigan picketing outside DNC headquarters right now.

They're complaining that the DNC's refusal to seat Florida and Michigan delagates will prevent dozens of union members who are delegates from attending the convention, and they want DNC Chairman Howard Dean to resolve the dispute.

Mike Williams, a Florida union member, compared the DNC's refusal to seat the delegates from those two states as similar to when a company locks outs striking union employees.

"We're getting locked out," said Williams as he and the other union members pickteted the DNC. Williams estimated that as many as a dozen building trade union members, and 30 union members overall, would be part of the Florida contingent to the Democratic convention

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

Is calling people 'stupid communist fuckwits' really a mature response?

'Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain and leave the Shroomery.' ~ Jim Morrison
