Watch on as America reverses time…
The National Labor Relations Board is expected to issue a decision Tuesday that could have a big impact in American workplaces. At stake: Who is a supervisor? Labor activists are prepared for a definition that could strip workers of legal protections, including the right to join a union.
Soon they’ll have the strike breakers out and Jimi Hoffa will rise from…wherever the hell he is buried to save the day.
This both sucks and blows at the same time. What is happening to the America that our parents and grandparents fought for? Why aren’t we (America’s Disenfranchised youth) fighting this kind of crap?
Because we feel powerless to do anything. Its a New World Order for America and we just want to be happy, but every corner you turn around you see a new Stalinist/Maoist dictator trying to take you down (figuratively speaking of course). Its that simple, we’re afraid. In the sixties and seventies people thought, “Oh our own government would never detain an American citizen indefinitely for no reason whatsoever”. Now we don’t have that luxury. The new detainee act has firmly placed us all under a dictatorship where any dissent could easily be punished with life in prison and torture. I can only say one thing, what about our kids and possible grandchildren?
I wish their was some way to rally America’s youth to fight (and I mean fight like Malcolm X “By Any Means Neccesary” kind of fight) this kind of NeoMcCarthyiest Dictatorial EVIL that Bush’s administration has foisted upon us in the guise of protecting America, Without Liberty, Under Their False God, FOREVER! Ah-fucking-men.
Side Note: The Politics of fear seem to work quite well, maybe too well to overlook (Eye for an Eye? Fire with Fire?). Fear can be a great motivator, but how does one strike fear into the hearts of those that hold all the power? Perhaps with good old fashioned reckless abondone? Perhaps with a leader (a revolutionary not a political POS) that will guide us to taking back America? I dunno.
How much more are we willing to take? Its time to start shitting on the White House lawn. Its time to start standing in front of tanks. Its time to put our lives on the line so that our children can grow up in a free country like we did.
I just wish I knew where to start. So far all I can do is blog. But I feel that this isn’t enough. At the same time I selfishly guard my job and my lifestyle from all this crap by not intervening in any other way but blogging. I feel shame for that, but I just can’t jeopardize what my fiance and myself have worked so hard to achieve. I am at a loss. And frankly I am scared.
Any thoughts or help would be much appreciatred.
