A discussion of race, politics, media and the like… What I see is what you get.

Absorbing the Pain…


A new normal. Or just the same class warfare where working class people fight each other for crumbs… When will we, collectively, get hip to the game being played on us?

The joke that has gone viral on the internet recently that sums up the recent economic unfairness goes like this:
“A public union employee, a tea party activist, and a CEO are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it. The CEO takes 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says, ‘Watch out for that union guy. He wants a piece of your cookie.'”
It’s time we start asking for our fair share of those 11 cookies…

The predators at the top, billionaires and millionaires, are pitting ordinary workers against one another. So we’re left with the bizarre situation of unionized workers with a pension being resented by nonunion workers without one. The swells are in the background, having a good laugh. – Bob Herbert
