That One  

I'd like to say that the candidates talked about union issues tonight, touched on how collective bargaining works or how the Employee Free Choice Act is a baby step toward equalizing the playing field between workers and employers, but nope, none of that. Instead, I got to see (thank you Tivo for letting me skip over it) a once great Democrat wallow in the mud with the anti-union forces against workers rights (yeah again Tivo, just writing that makes me want to take a shower). But nothing angered or pushed me further than this video clip:



I'm not sure how many of you reading this right now might have had this experience before, but let me tell you, talking about workers issues often gets me this comment. The condescending and patronizing, well, "that one" over there doesn't understand. Or "that one" doesn't know what it's like to work for a living, she supports unions...um, hello! Who do you think belongs to unions? Workers!

"That One". If you've ever organized, took a stand for workers rights, refused to walk into a Wal-Mart with a family member or friend, you've heard it. But I never expect to hear this kind of shit coming out of the mouth of a candidate for president, and ESPECIALLY NOT from a nominee of any party.

Seriously, this man wants to be president?

    Yep, that one made me do a double take, like I felt a really mean vibe going on at that moment.

    What the hells a plurk?

    Plurk is like twitter but with a timeline. I update my plurk and twitter using Ping.fm. It totally rocks.

    I also can follow other timelines that I'm signed up for on plurk which ends up looking more like a mapped time line than a scrooll as it does on twitter.
