    had the courage to face jail, if nec, in order to fight for their fellow workers. Mother Jones spent many long months as an old woman in what she called "Military Bastilles", Big Bill Haywood, Ralph Chaplin, and most of the IWW leadership of the time, Eugene Debs, fed prison. The list goes on and on. The times we are living in require courage. Millions unemployed, losing their homes, dying without health care. If our leaders won't fight for us now, at least they need to get the hell out of our way.

    If there's a reason for the rich to rule, please Lord, tell us why. -Battle of Jericol, Coal Mining Woman
