  1. “jobs” are the fraud of industrialized capitalism.

    Unions are the necessary response to corporatist greed at the expense of workers.

    But we know the model is wrong.

    The 200-year history of industrial capitalism based in fossil fuels is a bogus, short-sighted, greed-based idea, but you cant fix it overnight.

    It took 200 years to get to this sorry place. It will likely take calamity to bring people back in line with resources and reality (at least americon people, everyone else seems to be sweatin’ it for real).

  2. Well, that leaves recruiters as the “only game in town” for impoverished areas.

    I am beginning to think we need another draft…for Congress’ kids.

    Unemployment is actually a little higher in Socialist Democracies, like Germany, yet the people do not die the in the streets lik they do here. the Democratic Party has not represented the working classes for a very long time.

    The “economy” is certainly not working as it is. The “middle classes” are just now feeling it, though. The poor and working classes have been sufferig for decades. Now, they want to pass another so-called Free Trade Agreement with Panama, which will harm the peoples of both countries and help big mult-nationals.

    Screw NAFTA/CAFTA/PAFTA and the DLC>. Schmafta…

  3. It’s really too bad Kucinich only speaks during these one minute segues at the opening on Congress. Agreed, the US needs a forward looking industrial policy, but isn’t this “a little too little too late”? After all, the de-industrialization of the US has been going on for an awful long time. The many treaties that have left the US on the precipice of thirdworldization will have to be scrapped. Is this legal under UN charters? It’s nice to speak of bringing heavy industry (which creates jobs to sustain their faux “service” economy), but it’s not as easy as it seems. To accomplish this requires de-constructing US economic policy which has been in process for at least fifty years and perhaps longer.
