  •  We need living wage laws all across America.. (12+ / 0-)

    The minimum wage has not kept up, and that's part of the race to the bottom...

    I want to live in a country where everyone has health care, food, decent shelter and a living wage law is one path. So is universal health care and a strong safety net for when people are unemployed or ill, etc.

    •  Move to Australia you Kenyan socialist! (9+ / 0-)

      Wait, that doesn't make sense...

      •  It'd be Easier and Faster. (4+ / 0-)

        --And that's taking into account that very few civilized countries want Americans moving in in any number.

        I had to become unique --literally-- among all 7 billion of us to qualify for Canada, since I'm not from a Commonwealth nation nor a close relative of a Canadian nor rich enough to bring them a business that would hire Canadians. You can't get in if you've ever had a DUI either.

        (Still disappointed that a needy relative anchored us here in the world's most powerful 3rd world society.)

          The U. S. is...

          ...the world's most powerful 3rd world society.
           
          Got that right.  There is a reason for this; we must
          understand it and be ready massively to resist when the next inevitable crisis happens.  The financial elites use the class, race, sex, etc. wars to disempower us, keep us subjugated and exploited.  We need to be very wily wise and outsmart them.  Don't let them use disttractions like the Black Blok to slander and discredit the real movement.
