    to shed responsibility by corporations.      Until Democrats grow a set and pass Employee Free Choice Act  over the heads of Wall St, US Chamber of Commerce and Bernie Marcus this will only get worse.  

    America is turning into a sweatshop,   because of the neutralization of organized labor and implementation of trade policies that put the USA at a disadvantage.    Both Parties failed to do their job defending our economy,  and our good jobs.  Both Parties had a part in making China a growing economy at US expense.      

    The biggest threat to the USA comes not from foreign terrorists , but from the Wall St financial terrorists who will never squeeze enough from labor to become rich enough.    Corporatism,  and the pervasive growing acceptance of a culture of corruption and cronyism is another harmful factor.     We must hold those who are corrupt accountable regardless of their politics or wealth.    Corruption should never receive an "it depends" pass.  

    Labor unions must work harder from the top down to be seen as assets to the community,  and improve their public image.   The corporatist propaganda of thuggery that their pundits use needs neutralized.

    Victims of bigotry are the poorest, least influential members of society.......never the wealthiest, most educated, most overrepresented in high levels, and most influential. Bigotry hurts the least influential. To claim or say otherwise is absurd.
