    The phrase, "power to the people" fits these striking Wal Mart workers.

    On the other side of this equation you have power to the corporation.
    To the tea partiers/republican party which side do you think needs more power?

    Riiiight...that poor, poor corporation is soooo mistreated.

    Go ahead partier/republican and go stand with your beloved corporation and their cronies and see if they really give a rats ass about you and your family.

    The people striking are you. They're workers just like you.

    I'll stop now, you can go back to hating the unions.

    •  Therein lies the problem (0+ / 0-)

      There aren't many Republicans left in California to cross the picket line.

      Most of them moved to Arizona, Idaho or, um, Utah.

      There are, sadly, lots of unemployed workers who would jump at a chance to work at a Walmart.

        divided and under control through means of a shitty job or no job at all.

        When the bills are all due, food on the table is meager...yeah, pretty easy to make a decision to cross a picket line.

        It's all about control, with some over the top greed thrown in.

        Wherever there's money, there are rethuglycans.

        Traditionally California cities have been overwhelmingly blue, but the suburbs and boonies have been pretty red. However, this year it's different.

        Women, Latinos, African-Americans, poor and middle class people, and rich people with a conscience, won't be able to vote for a guy who lies so much and so often about issues which affect the well being of most Americans, that it's been months since we've heard a word about his poor judgement and (criminally) cruel choice to put his sick dog in a carrier strapped to the roof of his car for a long trip (which alone should be reason enough to disqualify him as a candidate for president, but you get what they pay for).

        BTW,

        REMEMBER SEAMUS ROMNEY!!!

        After being let out of the carrier, Seamus ran away. In November, many California republicans will do the same, crossing party lines to vote for Obama. Some of them will even register as Democrats next time around.
