There are very fine people on one side.

Funny how the ownership class here always demagogues and points to the 'evil foreigner'

as 'the enemy'.

Germany, Japan, Korea should have their own steel production, auto production, textiles, etc. Their workers do what is needed to produce, and should get a decent living from it.

The macroeconomic 'realities' tihat have been fetishised as 'organically occurring' and 'acting independently' are just ownership's way of saying that the same can't be said for American workers. While they're screaming, bellowing, murder mouthing evil foreigners who patriotic American workers 'should hate' for 'cheating America'.

Shitler was just showing hundreds of workers in a cage, waiting to get out. That's his 'stick it in your ass' statement to labor, here. Exactly like the ICE detention facilities. Most of those people are workers, too.

It's like one of those choose your own adventure books.

He covered all possible choices, placed his bets on black, red, odd, even.

And the wheel still came up on zero, house wins.

Like his family separation policy; there WAS no policy, and it was an Obama policy they were trying to end, and the bible told them to enact that policy, and there was NO policy.

I hope they get time and a half.

Typical for tRump, he has to rent a crowd. The memo the tradespeople got demanded there be no resistance to him. Free speech is only for nazis, gorka, spencer, anglin.

I notice from the memo that there was no end time listed for the event, but obviously they told the employees it was regular end of shift. Then shitler stuck around for hours afterward, getting his butt kissed by ownership and management, I guess.

He had zero to do with the cracker plant, though some state repugs had been involved in shoveling out the tax investments. When this thing was being proposed, planned, he was busy tweeting about birth certificates, cheating on wifey, stealing tRump u students' money, bankrupting casinos, you know, business leadership stuff.

He stuck around to stick it in labor's ass.

The whole thing was purposeful. Shows that he'll come into Labor territory,

and jerk all those tough construction workers' chains, threatening their paycheck. Make them stand in full sleeve high via osha mandated stuff, for hours crowded together. Obviously they'd be arrested by ss or cops supporting ss if they said, 'screw this, I'm leaving'.

Our taxdollars, and theirs, are paying for that Shell plant 'investment'.

Jee, I didn't even know that asshole was in the region.

Poor Beaver County.

The trades men/women trying to actually build the place, don't worry about them. The self made billionaire will pay them for the hours they had to stay on the jobsite, unpaid, after work, so he could have a photo op.

The checks in the mail.

Went to a Tisha B'Av gathering outside of ICE today.

At a non-descript newer brick bldg on South Side, by the Hot Metal bridge.

I'd like to thank the Interfaith Jewish groups who held the service and protest rally today.

The rabbis and the rank and file synagogue members took time to help others, including a lot of catholics. I was honored to participate, and thank them for speaking while my catholic hierarchy remains mum. (Not Pope F., but the ratzinger/jpII appointee, Bishop Zubic.)

It was a nice ceremony and activist event, one of 50 in the country.


I turned out for JVP's event backing moslems in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, right at the start of Rump's admin. When that shooter shot up the Tree of Life, some Islamic groups offered money, to stand guard during the Synagogue's services, whatever was needed. Now good Jewish people are helping catholics. (There are some protestant converts among the immigrants and refugees, but the population is largely R.C.)

Seems like the way forward. Work with all good people, for all good people, across traditional activist advocacy lines.

Yossarian: You don't stand a chance, kid, they hate Jews.

Clevenger: But I'm not Jewish.

Yossarian: It doesn't matter, they're out to get everyone.
