  •  OMG. Could they be waking up? (4+ / 0-)
    shift resources away from Democratic Party support and into grassroots organizing, including promoting a "Second Bill of Rights" and a rally in Philadelphia on August 11.
    Now that's Change I Can Believe In.

    Perhaps the unions are realizing that Free Trade Job Outsourcing doesn't help working Americans?  Mayhap they don't like Bankster Chiefs of Staff?  Who Knows?  Maybe giving Lieberman - a NON Democrat - the powerful Chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee instead of someone far more deserving (such as Bernie Sanders) has finally woke them up?

    Next Up:  Banning Wall Street Predators from moving into the WH as Resident Lobbyists (as in no more Savvy Bankster Chiefs of Staff).  One can still Hope, right?

    I voted for Change. Not Three Chiefs of Staff from Wall Street Banks. Not Bernanke, Summers, Geithner, Holder, Simpson, or a Monsanto Lobbyist. Not more Free Trade. Not more Patriot Act. Not defending Wall Street's Savvy Businessmen.
