Philippine Airline workers intensify protest actions (tags)
The Philippine Airlines Employees? Association (PALEA) today asserted that Philippine Airlines (PAL) President Jaime Bautista?s announcement that they no longer acknowledge Gerry Rivera and Bong Palad as union officers exposes union busting as the real aim of outsourcing. ?Truly a fish is caught by its mouth. Actually PAL is not just recognizing me and Palad as union officers but 62% of PALEA?s leadership and 70% of its membership who have been illegally lockout and terminated. Outsourcing thus is tantamount to union busting,? stated Gerry Rivera, PALEA president and vice chair of Partido ng Manggagawa (PM - Labor Party).

The Two Roads Out of Recession (tags)
Recent events in Washington, D.C. should provoke fear and outrage in the average American worker. As the jobs recession staggers on, politicians and labor leaders alike seem bizarrely distanced from reality, unable to advance any ideas that remotely correspond to the basic demands of those tens of millions of unemployed, under-employed, or poorly paid workers. Instead, what we get is President Obama's recent groveling to the corporate-dominated Chamber of Commerce, pleading with them to hire workers. The President's recent speech to the Chamber implied many dangers, which neither labor federation-- AFL-CIO and Change to Win -- bothered to point out. In fact, the AFL-CIO applauded sections of the speech, rather than condemning its sinister motives. If labor unions align themselves with the President's and the Chamber's pro-corporate path out of the recession, a workers’ road to recovery will be bypassed.

Billionaire Meg Whitman to Challenge Same-Sex Marriage Rights (tags)
Meg Whitman may be the most dangerous opponent the same-sex marriage supporters may face in 2010; she is a billionaire, she already has the strong support of her Republican base and she has the financial backing to campaign for governor.

ATTENTION: All admirable soldiers and police officers (tags)
Again, I will remind all admirable soldiers and police officers: CNN, CBC, and FOXNews has forbidden our truths to be broadcast in support of Justice for ourselves. WTC7. Zionist corporate medias are deliberately working to mislead our kids to have them willingly sacrifice their lives in further blind support of the real terrorists that committed the crimes of 911. As according to the FBI.
A Real One of All Things - Terrorism by the Bush Administration (tags)
Others too have come out with this, 'it looks like this last big terrorism bust, was actually a real one of all things’. It's too sloppy with the blatant ISI-Qaeda-ISI hanging all over it. The bushmob might actually go down on this one, if more evidence should arise linking the let escape ISI from 911 to carry on, with yet another attempt at murdering undefended Americans left dying forsaken.

No democracy or religion is going to vote in rights inferior to the supreme nazi zionist enemy. A "Jewish State" is a State where all GODLY people are treated equally with respect and honor.

Death to Our Enemies - A God Exclusive (tags)
Again, soldiers everywhere, my friends, CBC, CNN, and FOXNews Zionist demon liar broadcasters KNOW the bushmob did 911, but forbid US to communicate freely for Justice. Instead, they wish US to war against each other for their demonic pleasures. Instead of me needlessly slaughtering ignorant ungodly bushite dumfuks, let's support the FBI's conclusion, on who TRULY funded the terrorist operations of 911 to nab the REAL EVIL doers. Or, suffer more from the tyrannies of YOUR cowardice to stand up for yourself as worth something.
Immigrants Are Lost In American Politics (tags)
Over the past 25 years Americans have enjoyed the benefits of immigrants for cheap labor; now the Washington leadership, that has relaxed enforcement and has permitted over twelve million immigrants to establish residency in the United States, is now reversing direction because cheaper labor is now in abundance in Asia. Washington is acting to protect the interest of corporate America, however there are many ramifications, families that are now part of the American fabric, working with us, living with us and are now part of our society.

Ambassador of Death, Right-Wing Death Squads, Drug Smuggling: George Bush's Plan for Iraq. (tags)
Right wing death squads and a hub for drug smuggling is Bush's vision of democracy in Iraq all orchestrated by the ambassador of death, Negroponte. The old Iran Contra gang are all in place once again ready to flood the streets of America and Europe with cheap heroin from Afghanistan. The Bush administration's reluctance to hand Saddam over to the interim government of Iraq maybe based not on a fear of Saddam's military capabilities but on a fear of him telling what he knows about drug smuggling.

Why does Kerry sound like Bush? (tags)
According to the logic of the Democratic Party establishment and their mouthpieces, the only candidate that can beat Bush is the one that’s just as tough as Bush. As for people who actually want to see an end to Bush’s rotten reign--people who opposed the war on Iraq and Bush’s giveaways to Corporate America--they should keep quiet, while Kerry moves to the right to look for more votes.

Kerry catches tax cut mania (tags)
It is highly unlikely that tax breaks would spur much job-creating investment, since employers are reluctant to expand operations while facing overcapacity in almost every industry. Utilization of industrial capacity hit a 20-year low of 74 percent last year, and is barely higher today. Instead of adding jobs, employers are squeezing more from fewer workers, while allowing little or no wage growth.

UK Independent reports Republicans use E-voting systems to steal elections (tags)
If much of the worry about vote-tampering is directed at the Republicans, it is largely because the big three touchscreen companies are all big Republican donors, pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into party coffers in the past few years. The ownership issue is, of course, compounded by the lack of transparency. Or, as Dr Mercuri puts it: "If the machines were independently verifiable, who would give a crap who owns them?" As it is, fears that US democracy is being hijacked by corporate interests are being fuelled by links between the big three and broader business interests, as well as extremist organisations. Two of the early backers of American Information Systems, a company later merged into ES&S, are also prominent supporters of the Chalcedon Foundation, an organisation that espouses theocratic governance according to a literal reading of the Bible and advocates capital punishment for blasphemy and homosexuality.

DefenseWatch "The Voice of the Grunt": Loyalty to the Country Always (tags)
Like the Dixie Chicks, the Irish people aren’t afraid to sound off. Forever mindful of their hard fight for liberty, they don’t take freedom of speech for granted. And their stand-up-and-be-counted electronic media regularly – and righteously – go for their politicians’ jugular veins with a vengeance seldom seen in the USA these days. I suspect the reason for the difference is Corporate America’s control over our airways; the big guys are now shamelessly riding the same corrupting pork train as most Washington-based power players.
