Is Trump the Silver Shirts' Leader

Will Donald Trump be the leader the right wing GOP has been waiting for to lead toady’s version of the America’s Silver Shirts? Silver shirts was based on Nazi Germany’s Brown Shirts. Trump has already gotten the support of the White Supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan and all the closeted angry racists of the GOP party. Remember, people laughed at Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini and said the two would never come to power. We all know the horror and terror they wreaked upon the world. If the U.S. doesn’t wake up this country could very well see the same thing happen here. The Silver Shirts were America’s answer to the Brown Shirts, same kind of ideology, same kind of entitlement over others and same kind of twisted propaganda that unsuspecting people fell for. There could be small revolutions fighting against terrorism—in all its forms, ethnic-type of discrimination, or even the young, disenchanted low-wage college people who have huge debts but low-wage jobs. The young who bought into the “American Dream” and did what they should have done to get ahead not realizing the oligarchies stacked the deck against them. And the young people who are victims of “poverty draft,” those who go into the military believing it is the only realistic option for getting a higher education, receive veteran benefits and better their lives, but the GOP refuses to pass any legislation to repay these government personnel for their service. Remember, most of these service members will come back trained in warfare so we here better have something for them to continue bettering their lives, like being in a union that will continue their upward mobility. If not, they will either end up on the streets or blindly following Trump and his Silver Shirt-types. The blame will ultimately be on the voters. This election could be the most important one in the last 60 or 70 years. Trump vs Sanders, one’s policies could last five to six years and one, like Sanders, could last for 100 years and save the country or even the world, like President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s. GOP supporters love their Medicare and Social Security, but they are so ignorant that they don’t realize these programs were not only passed by a Democratic president, but are considered socialist programs. The Affordable Care Act is a way to control or prevent insurance companies from gouging people, it is not Obamacare giving away free stuff. These people also think Trump is a good businessman. He is not. He inherited his wealth, but has failed to really build upon what his father gave him. Trump’s rhetoric on immigrants is ignorance at its most hateful. Everyone one of us is an immigrant to this country and our foreparents were greeted by the first Americans. It took all of us, immigrants and native born, to build this country to its greatest achievements, but its decline lies at the feet of the greedy GOP and the likes of people like Trump. All one has to do is look at history to make the right decision on who to support and who to vote for. I think our unions are slowly making the right decisions on these choices.

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…
