My god. Thanks for following this, Mick. I wouldn't know anything about it if it weren't for you.

Sal Roselli might not be blameless, but this is Andy Stern's mess. Period.

Nell, what makes you so sure?

Great article but I have a bone to pick with you - You wrote that "The sacked officers have launched a rival union to raid the SEIU's ranks." What!?! As an IHSS homecare provider, I can tell you that SEIU raided OUR ranks by trying to take me out of MY union of choice. NUHW (the new union - National Union of Healthcare Workers) is *restoring* us to our original union.

When was the last time that *you* got more than 60,000 people to sign anything, let alone in 6 weeks with no paid staff!! No - this is not a raid. This is people staying with their local regardless of Boss Stern's attempts to take over our lives and sell us for his personal profit.

One more time - SEIU raided our union! NUHW is restoring our union. THANK YOU, NUHW MEMBERS AND WORKERS!!!

You wrote that...

Actually, no, I didn't. That was a quote from a story in the LA Times. Which doesn't necessarily mean I disagree with that characterization. Or agree with it.

I understand your passion but from the outside it doesn't look anything like that clear cut.

Zinn


  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton


  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
