    •  Some people hope the Dems will move to left (4+ / 0-)

      Or, more accurately, they hope that Dems will move back to where they were 30+ years ago.  Some people hope that president will veto KXL.

      Ray's hope of a massive strike is no more fanciful than those hopes are.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

        Keystone XL has... what... exactly to do with the BART transit strike, which I guess is nominally what this diary is about...?

          Oil companies and carbon extraction. It was the oil companies that ran the trolley companies out of business here, and the oil companies who gain from having crappy mass transit.

          If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
