War Profiteers Owe Veterans

Our soldiers should be factored into the cost of wars just like the machines of war, like bullets, missiles, tanks, airplanes, ships, guns—large and small, clothes and all the high tech equipment. All of which corporations get very rich from and all these things are replaceable for a cost. But, most all the equipment is useless unless you have a human soldier to use the equipment. So why is it everyone gets rich, including the politicians and lobbyists and the soldiers are left holding the bag, begging for jobs when they are discharged or looking for mental or physical medical help, and a lot of times having to turn to charity when homeless. The costs to care for our veterans should be paid up front by the war racketeers and put into a trust for when the soldiers come home from the corporate-sponsored wars from whom we buy the machines of death and destruction. This concept of banking for the future could be administered like union pensions. We spend billions on the countries we invade for oil and even spend billions on countries that we are just trying to buy control or friendship, like Israel. This money should be spent on our people in the form of healthcare, education, housing, job creation, food, among others, and this is not just our problem. This is a worldwide problem. The war profiteers should be the ones paying for the damage they inflict on the toilers of the world. Veterans should not having to depend on cupcake sales or begging in the streets to finish out their war-torn bodies, which can be mentally and physically damaged. Setting aside this money for veterans would be considered a cost of doing business, which the corporate-loving- GOP-backed war hawks should understand. If the money people don’t understand this concept, the toilers will wise up and there just won’t be humans to operate their war equipment—then what? Peace? If you don’t believe the GOP are war loving mongers, consider this: Jeb Bush has surrounded himself with the same policy advisors his father and brother had: Paul Wolfowitz, Tom Ridge, Michael Chertoff, James Baker, George Schultz, Poster Goss, John Negroponte, Stephen Hadley, Michael Mukasey, Meghan O’Sullivan, Otto Reich, John Hannah, Kristen Silverberg, Paula Dobriansky, Roger Noriega, Kenneth Juster, Robert Natter, Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Pierra Prosper, and who are the ones pushing to bomb Iran or confronting Russia—Republican war profiteers.

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…

Unions vs Associations & the U.S. Supreme Court

One of the great things about our judicial system is that if you are right or wrong anyone with enough money can get heard at the final stop in the court system. The U.S. Supreme Court and, this is good except when our unbiased Supreme Court is not unbiased, such as it is now. For now the injustices that are being imposed upon our citizens, women’s rights and union workers do not dare go to court for fear their case may end up in the Supreme Court with a final decision that is ruled against women’s and union rights.

We must get the Supreme Court back to an unbiased court. How do we do this? Keep a friendly president in office with a congress and senate that backs the president. In the meantime we will not have the legal process to help us so we will just have to work on winning the public’s opinion with the truth and the consequences of the GOP against the middle class and retired people.

Remember the Supreme Court giveth and Supreme Court taketh away.
