Leaderless Revolution

The leaderless world revolution and the armies are all around us just waiting for a trigger or tipping point to march and they are all leaders so how are they controlled? It looks, to me, like they have taken a look at history and have written a play book that has taken old tactics that worked and came up with new ones and with that they have added and use our new technology. What we are seeing is it is very hard to kill the snake when you cannot find its head. Brazil is a good example of a tipping point, upping the cost of public transportation that millions of low wage workers would have to pay and then humiliating one person by pepper spraying her in the face for no reason other than they think they can and get away with it. I wonder what the cops were thinking when they were pushed into the ocean up to their waists—power to the people. This is just the start of the Have All against the Have Some and Have Nots. For us, wage slaves, have a right to have a say and a right to an equal share of the world’s commons, such as our world’s water, oil, gold, food, trees—all the things that come from the earth and sky. We should have good air to breathe or at least a say on how good it is or how bad. Also our commons are things we support with our taxes, such as roads, parks, law enforcement, fire departments, schools, colleges—all these are owned by the people. When people get very rich using our commons then we, wage slaves, should be compensated. When the Indians of South America fight for their water, trees and way of life it is our fight also for we are all citizens of the world. This is what the International Workers of the World believed that we are in this together. The citizens of the world are not going to stand much longer the huge gap between the oligarchies 1% and the Have Nothings. Just look at Europe, the Middle East and now South America. So far, it has been rather peaceful, but the other Have Nots in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Africa. These people are waging war, shooting, bombing, and killing. How far away are we from this? After World War I, in the Bonus Army March of 1932, we worried about our soldiers coming home without good paying jobs and the soldiers were very angry with the state of our country when they came home. The government embarrassed these angry soldiers by greeting them machine guns, bayonets and tear gas as they went on strike for their promised benefits. Well, we have soldiers coming home with about the same situation as then. How do you think it will end this time? We have been at war for 10 years; some of these veterans have been fighting for more than one-third of their lives. Who is going to tell them there is nothing for them and they have to set up house under a bridge. So the Democrats and the GOP, who are bought and paid for by corporations and oligarchies, had better change their ways and sooner rather than later or we here in the good old USA could see a combination of what’s happening in Brazil, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq. Those people know how to fight. Then throw into the mix, the nuts who are already here and add the right wing nuts and you have a very toxic improvised explosive devise just waiting to explode and there is a trigger and a tipping point, and with no leader we have to take the initiative.

Post Workists and What it Means

To change the abundance of labor in the world is to put more money in the pockets of the laborer to buy the products their fellow workers are making. Otherwise, when there are more products than money, there is slump in the economy. Austerity policies, low wages and automation (robots) were also of concern in the 1950s when Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, took Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Workers Union, on a tour of a new engine plant. Ford gestured to a fleet of new machines and said, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” The union leader turned to Ford and said, “Henry, how are you going to get robots to buy your cars?” This type of change in the labor has created a new type of working class that swings from task to task in order to make ends meet while enduring the loss of labor rights and bargaining rights. They are called “precariat” workers, a group of workers who live on the verge of collapse due to the instability of the nature of their job…

GOP To Pick-off Remainder of Unions

The last bastion of organize labor is now on the west and east coasts, like New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Labor has mostly given up on the south and the middle of the U.S., is that because unions aren’t up to the fight? We have lost Detroit, Michigan and Wisconsin, which was the start of public unions. These GOP government control states, like govenors Synder and Pence have kicked our union butts. In California, labor has lost all of the rural counties, Orange and San Diego counties; and now San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles counties are our last strong holds. It would not take a lot to lose California. California has elected GOP governors before and with our new federal government now in place and with the Koch brothers, et al, and their money it could be done again. We, union workers, could lose it all. They have started on teachers’ union and they are still trying to break the postal workers union by forcing the pension funds to be funded 75 years ahead of pa…

Gig Economy

The Gig con, which sells people on a more flexible job without fixed hours. This sounds enticing to workers fed up with their 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs. Also, to people without jobs, and to people who have part-time jobs, and need more money. Gig jobs fill in many needs, but the rub is that these jobs or most of these jobs don’t pay into Social Security or Social Disability Insurance so when someone hits retirement age there is nothing to fall back on. Most have been told that Social Security will not have money for them because Social Security will be broke. This is a lie and a con job on the workers. Social Security will be OK if the federal government will keep its hands off the money we paid into it. They think it is their piggy bank. Then what if you get sick or injured on the Gig job, there is no healthcare. We know that we are running out of jobs here and worldwide. This is why we need the universal basic income and unions for all. At this time, the federal government estimates…
