This kid sings in Chicago. This song is about the folks with whom I grew up near the steel mills in Chicago...Interlake/ACME. Mostly Union men (mostly from the south or legal immigrants) living in those neighborhoods just trying to make a better life for themselves and the kids. These Union folks are generally God fearing patriots who love America. They are the folks Democrats forgot and clearly no longer understand.

RWW? Just some transplant clown who is all self important.
And "I'm" on his "radar". 🤣😎

Oh.. And notice how he hides behind some lame title?
Too cowardly to name himself. That show just how BS it is.
He's now gloating to himself that you even gave him the time of day.

That is so cute that you think that anyone would believe that Republicans stand up for unions, or the working class, or poor people.

I have my own gripes about Democrats not paying enough attention to workers issues, but the idea that Republican policies have been better for workers is simply laughable.

Once the Republican party was pretty pro-union, although there was a strong anti-union thread in there too, like the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947...but that all began to change in the mid 1980's. Starting with the Taft-Hartley Act and the beginnings of Republican opposition to collective bargaining the anti-union Republican movement grew, moving to right to work laws, then to the busting of PATCO, then to dropping any pro-union language in party platforms in the 1990's, until today when there is no group more hostile to unions than the current crew of elected Republicans.

Let's be clear the working people who support the Republican party today, who Josh Hawley references when he says, "...the Republicans are the working class party now.." are the working class who are working three jobs at low wages with now benefits...because Republicans busted the unions.

But let's be clear Barry Republicans can't be a "working class party" unless their drop their opposition to a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society, largely because that is who most of the working class in America is today.

But you can be a white, grievance laden party....which is just about all.

Steven Frisch

Nice song though...and the United Steel Workers endorsed Joe Biden for President :)

Don Bessee

Must have used a front end loader for that pile of bovine scatology @ 519. The unemployment and wage numbers pre covid (herd immunity in april is the headline in the WSJ and creepy grampa joe didn't do that) put the lie to talking points for lefties.

;-)

Walt

Who put unions to work Steve? Trump.
Who just stabbed them in the back? Biden.
I'm no supporter of unions. It's legalized extortion.
Think they are so damned great? Look at what the teacher's union is doing. They like their money for doing nothing.
They don't want to go back to work Any excuse NOT TO.
Funny,, PLENTY were happy to tell union greed to fuck off.
There was/is some program where people got money to take care of their elders. The "caregivers union" wanted a cut of that because taking care of old people was a union job.
Yet no union worker was there to "take the job".
Now what "union" has Herr Biden set up to get the pipe layers "union" back to work? "Solar panel squeegee boys"?

SEIU? Try getting ahold of a state worker...(Unemployment in this state is beyond fucked up.)

Repubs have been for the working stiff. Your side? want to give OUR jobs to illegals. Yup, that's real "worker friendly".

Walt

A song? Like the LIE Al Gore spewed forth about being lulled to sleep by Mommy singing the "union label" song?
So when does SBC go "union"?🤣

Gregory

When union membership became primarily public employee union membership, the domain of Democratic Party reptiles, of course the GOP couldn't compete.

I think it hilarious that Bezos is a'gin the unionizing effort plaguing Amazon... using by mail balloting. :)

Remember... Look for the Union Libel!

Walt

Just think Steve of the future union job losses.
Think Texas will piss away money on more "green" windmills?
A better snake oil salesman than you talked them into putting those bird blenders up.

Walt

Almost forgot.. The police union... ICE has had their balls cut off by Herr Biden.. Think that "union" is pleased? They sure miss Trump.
ICE is Herr Biden's door man down at the border.

You paying attention right wing watcher?(or should we call you stalker?)
Your new title is NC-"SS"..(Commie bastard)

Frisch has been eating the yellow snow: "...Republicans can't be a "working class party" unless their drop their opposition to a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society,..."
They aren't opposed to it, Frisch - they are opposed to it being rammed through with racist quotas and lowered standards.
It's the white leftys that openly believe that blacks and browns can't learn what whites and Asians can as well not being able to perform at the highest levels in employment.
Remember Frisch - "if you don't vote for Biden you ain't black" and "Not everybody in the community—in the Hispanic and African American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and/or inner city districts—know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that Covid vaccination at the Walgreens or at the particular store,"
Straight up piss-in-their-face white racist and you Dem clowns wanted him over Trump.
Own it, dude.

Don Bessee

The big lie is alive and well -

While defending Cruz, Trump Jr. never mentions Abbott by name in the tweet or the video he posted.

In the clip, Trump Jr. appears to be referencing the Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom when mentioning governors “flagrantly disregarding their executive orders.”

While arguably worded confusingly, Trump Jr. makes no direct mention of Abbott being a Democrat. He never even names Abbott in the video or tweets, but he does directly name Cuomo and makes reference to Newsom.

So - with all the talk of a 'right wing watch' I thought I'd do a search on the term and lo and behold:

Naturally there's a whole tab just for QAnon - I swear, if the left didn't talk about them almost no one else would.
Every Don Quixote needs his windmills.
One of these days I might even run into an actual Q adherent.
But it will probably be a RWW member on an undercover assignment.
I'll try to see if the Idaho chapter of RWW is in the phone book.
They probably meet at the Mormon Temple under a big photo of Mitt Romney.

Somebody needs to be watching these ass holes -

A California mother reacted Friday to a profanity-laced hot mic moment of Oakley school board members slamming parents over calls to have teachers return to in-person learning.

"If you’re gonna call me out, I’m gonna f*** you up," exclaimed one board member.

"They want to pick on us because they want their baby sitters back," added another before those on the Zoom call realized the meeting was open for all the parents to see and hear.

Robbery was planned by Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army with the goal of establishing a Black nation in the South called Republic of New Afrika

After his parents' arrests, Chesa Boudin was raised by Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn

“Unfortunately, the circumstances of this arrest, as shocking as they might be, do not represent an outlier in EDD fraud investigations. Law enforcement personnel are frequently discovering EDD fraud associated with violent criminal activity as well as drugs and weapons offenses. In some cases, it is clear that the EDD fraud is providing a direct catalyst for the violence or funding the means to carry it out,” District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said in a statement.

Reading Suggestion

"We are terrible at seeing power. Or in other words: power is great at not being seen.

Because power is a human universal, all thinking is within the field of some power. Thoughts that go along with the field are obvious and soar up instantly like birds. Thoughts that flow against the field are as slow and impossible as arthritic turtles.

The thought of studying itself is inherently foreign to power. Power does not want to know itself. The most powerful powers do not even think of their power as power. If power does know itself, it keeps that knowledge to itself; but mostly, it really does believe its own official myths. The real O’Brien is a rare figure.

The thought of studying its enemies, however, is very satisfying and natural. Power has to know its enemies—any competing power—to fight them; also, to demonize them. Every power structure which is found in the enemy is suffused with a malign glow, as if our doctrinal immune systems were warning us of alien coronavirus spikes. Ideally, this same structure is not also found in itself; if so, the two must be well-distinguished."

Reading 1228pm - Good catch Mr Suggestion - food for thought.

re Walt 1027am - The spinal-response liberal automatically discounts the message from an unapproved messenger. Now here is an opportunity for the liberal's advancement in critical thinking skills. Breitbart has reported/made a prediction about Biden's next autocratic policy. The Breitbart vilifying liberal can now note and check the accuracy of the reported policy initiative. Is Team Biden really trying to "censor vaccine skeptics"?

Reading 12:28 - Love it. 'The Prince' meets Marshall McLuhan.
Following the reasoning of this essay makes it ever more important to follow the dictum "the best govt is the least govt".
Less govt=less power leakage.
One thing that wasn't touched on was the fact the power leakage is flowing through people who seem less and less attached to reality than ever. Illiterate, toothless sod farmers in the 1800s might have been horribly uneducated as to the wonders of (then) modern science and the many literary masterpieces of the enlightenment, but they would have never confused rioters and looters of last summer with brave soldiers landing on French beaches on D-Day. They would not look at the pampered, over-fed and privileged brats throwing temper-tantrums on college campuses today as having any grievance of any sort near to what the little babies imagine.
It could be that the author would find that fact to be of little consequence in the larger scheme of things.
I did especially like the emphasis on the concept of power structures self-organizing. Large numbers of people working towards the same end don't have to get together in a basement at regular secret meetings. It doesn't have to be a 'conspiracy' in the formal sense.
Good stuff.

Bill Tozer

School reopening: Rather interesting watching the new administration dodge and weave waiting for the teacher unions to tell them what to say. There is no need for science or even looking at data or facts like that zero classroom teachers have died of C-19 due to the catching it in classroom. The one reported case was been debunked. They (our gov’t experts) don’t even bother to keep track of student to teacher transmission. Not even on their list priorities. Tracking such needed data and science to even discuss school reopening is not on any list. Not needed at all to make POLITICAL decisions. Gut political instinct rejects “the idea”.

Yes, we know, and we also know that the safest place for kids from the C-19 Pandemic is in a place full of their peers, aka, schools.

Interesting to watch because their political instincts is in direct conflict with the data and CDC. They have no idea, no plan. If there is a plan, nobody knows what it is because there isn’t one.

Yes, we all love vaccines and we know teachers are prioritized for the wonderful vaccine, but the question was (for the fourth time), does Biden believe teachers can go back to the classroom without being vaccinated? Yes, Toy Story was wonderful....and WTF is the plan????

First Political instinct is to lie.

I have never seen an Administration so discombobulated....even more than at Trump’s wildest moments. They are seriously don’t know what is going on.

Q: what is Biden doing for small business hurting because of the Kung Flu?
A: Joe Biden nominated the first woman to run the SBA.
Q: WTF are you talking about? What does that have to do with small businesses at the edge of shuttering theIr doors for good? BTW, Trump put in place the first woman to run the SBA... Linda Marie McMahon (née Edwards) followed by that wonderful Latina highly qualified Jovita Carranza.

Q: What’s happening with the Stimulus checks?

A: President Biden appointed a woman to run Treasury.
Q: no idea, eh?

“ Here’s one thing we need to keep in mind. Those who utilize fear as a tactical weapon are often themselves afraid. They may make their insouciant pronouncements as if they were confident of their positions, but how else do we explain the troops and walls in our capitol? How else are we to regard the attacks on a president now out of office and banned from social media? How else should we interpret a government that operates by executive orders and fiats? If these aren’t examples of anxiety, fear of failure, unease over their positions, and terror over their illegitimacy, then I’m not sure what is.

Those who seek to rule us are afraid of us. They are afraid we see through them. Worse, they are afraid we might find them and their programs laughable. Were it otherwise, they would resort to reason rather than intimidation, thoughtful dialogue rather than fear mongering.

Rush Limbaugh once said, “I don’t think looking at things through the prism of fear is going to accomplish anything.””

Bill Tozer

@ 9:13 am
Finally someone is talking about the minimum wage! Nobody said a word about the minimum wage under this month’s post “$15/hr Dumbth on the March”. Well, Walt did on the first comment but the thread was hijacked by the usual suspect(s) who wanted to talk about anything and everything but the topic at hand.
Objections to who are the dumbest voters (the voters in the Congressional District whose collective intelligence elected Marjorie Taylor Greene to the Congress )Trump, Trump, Trump, Covid-19, to Candid Camera, Trump, Trump, Trump, Green again, this is the home of White Nationalism...but crickets on the 15 bucks an hour for the 2.3% of working folks who are temporary minimum wage earners, the vast majority of which being high school kids and summer jobs for the freshman and sophomores returning home from college for the summer. Or, part time work to supplement other sources of income.

Ok,, got that off my chest. My control freak OCD lefty ways reared it’s ugly head again. A skunk smells it’s own first. An embarrassing lapse in my recovery from liberalism. Darn, you fall off that wagon and it runs over ya.

Ah hell, we all know what the facts say about minimum wage. Helps a few, hurts a lot more, and does more harm than good. The data is clear. Start with Dr. Thomas Sowell or Walter E Wliiams or The City of Seattle to scratch the surface.

Walt: Speaking of falling off the wagon (not me, knock on a wooden knucklehead), count me in to cover all costs for the beer, adult beverages, soda pops, and fufu liquids. Just cause I do not partake, does not mean I would ever deny someone their right to social lubricants. As the duck said to the bartender, “Buy the house a round and put it on my bill.” Now, to get the greenies to ya. Maybe a drone delivery? May be out of the area in Spring, but drinks on me....

Walt

Thanks Bill, I was thinking about your "dryness".
Yes, I may be a redneck in the sticks, by my going through a case of beer in one evening is long past. Being a bartender in a place one step above a biker bar in the middle of New Mexico cured me of that.
We will get the particulars figured real soon.

Bill Tozer

It’s all good. All my rowdy friends have settled down, especially the ones I have outlived. :).

“Being a bartender in a place one step above a biker bar in the middle of New Mexico cured me of that.”

Ha, what a drugstore cowboy. If Punch only knew when he labeled me “Biker Bill”, that the very first thing I thought was, “Biker Bar? I wish! If only Paul knew that from where I been, a biker bar would be at least two rungs up the ladder.” At least two big steps up. Lol. It’s all good. I more or less romance the times, the era, but not the “are we having fun yet” part. Lack of problems is a good thing.

Heck, I have settled down so much I believe I now suffer from Agoraphobia. What a time to catch spring fever. Biker Bill. Now, that’s really romanizing the gang that wore leather vests with the trucker mud flap looking lady on them, but with exposed breasts and pistoles hanging from the nipples....to the White House and Trump had a blast with them. Oh my. My people are good people. Love it. I usually have little problems with Irredeemables. That’s a step below deplorables and dregs of society.

Best story I heard about romancing and minimizing our past mistakes to make it magically appear better or in the best light was from a guy from Texas of all places. One day he decided to check out different places and catch a change of scenery. So, he grabbed the family and headed straight to California. He continued, “I called that a change of scenery, but the State of Texas called it unlawfully flight to avoid prosecution.” Funny guy.

Dryness? I am so dry I am a fire hazard.” Another line from the same Texas dude. He’s doing the dirt nap and life is so good today that I hope I never ever lose the attitude of gratitude. Our country calls. The distress signal has been spotted. Have a good one. Spring fever calls and the sap is flowing,

That's a relief... to do it by Air Gregory, it would take two roundtrips, and only 1 rounder could split fuel expenses 50/50 by my understanding of faa regs... for a total of 8 or nine hours of me flying.

Beautiful flyover country.

Gregory - FAA says if I foot the fuel bill, it counts as 'commercial'?
You'd still be out the hours on your airframe and powerplant, not to mention your own time.
Good grief.

BT 11:50 - "Spring fever calls and the sap is flowing."
It's calling here, too. But it's a long distance call. We still have snow on the ground and plenty more winter coming.
Our daughter in Tejas has 74 today.
Ah, well - towards the end of every season, you always wish it was the next one right now.
Patience, young grasshopper.

so 111pm

one can share the actual expenses split equally by seat... when flying. it isn't like a handshake deal with automobiles.

Yes, the FAA is anal retentive over the rules concerning flying and money changing hands by folks without a Commercial rating... when i bought the Bonanza it was with the expectation I'd pick up the rating (there are parts of the practical exam that require having retractable gear and a controllable pitch prop) but didn't get around to it. There's literally nothing the rating buys me except in cases like this.


there are hair raising workarounds that shady operators play with... for example, charter operations with bizjets are very heavily regulated, both he airplane and the pilot... but demo rides for an airplane being shown to a prospective buyer... practically no regs...


Time building by young pilots intending to work the airlines drove the regulations. Old farts like me with a Private Pilot rating who already have the hours required for an Air Transport rating really can't derive value from the logging of more time flying.

Not an airplane ride, but next stop Nevada City... Emery.. Your mail order maid and gardner are on the way. (The rest may be headed to the pot grows..@15 dollar minimum wage?)

Watch the socialist wokesters and blm further divide society -

One explains that “To be less white is to: be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with apathy, break with white solidarity.” Another simply urges the view: “Try to be less white.”

Responding to the scandal on his YouTube channel, Reform UK party leader Nigel Farage lamented that he had thought progress was being made against the “Black Lives Matter madness”, but that the Coca-Cola revelations were another example of the corporate world having “lost its marbles” as a result of the movement.

“So, to be less white means you’ll be less arrogant, less ignorant — I mean, the list goes on: ‘try to be less white’,” he said.

“And the inference here is clear, isn’t it? That white is bad; white means supremacist; white means you look down your noses at everybody else; white means you are guilty!” he continued.

“And this is what Coca-Cola is foisting upon their employees in the USA?” he asked, expressing his hope that it would not “cross the Atlantic”.

“Do you think it means that white people who are exposed to this suddenly think: ‘Ah, yes! I must become a better person; I must make sure I exhibit within myself no prejudice towards anybody.’ Or does it actually make white people really, really angry, and actually make them feel that society is now more divided than ever?”

And the Russian hoax was bad?

"Plaskett said, “As for what this new report is showing with regard to Roger Stone and other allies of the president, I think it’s solidifying that, in fact, the president was, in fact, not only an instigator but a planner of the attack on January 6.”"

Creepy grampa joe has had alzheimer's for decades -

Biden claimed he was once arrested for trespassing at the Capitol at age 21
Biden has been caught bragging about other arrests that turned out not to be true.

Right wing watch? Well people are sure watching the Left, and they are getting caught.

"Another day, another suspicious act committed by Democrats in the 2020 election. Joe Biden was declared the winner in Colorado in the 2020 election. But the number of votes for Biden was reportedly more than both Hillary and Obama received in prior elections, a lot more. President Trump surpassed both the Obama and Hillary record vote counts, which you would think would have won him the state since Biden had no game and no following, but instead the impossible occurred. Biden received half a million more votes than Obama and Hillary to set a record and outperform them all.

We wrote about these impossible results 10 days ago?

Can you say,,, FASCISM? And the Proggys have the brass ones to call us nazis?
https://dailycaller.com/2021/02/22/house-democrats-deplatform-fox-newsmax/#disqus_thread
"Two House Democrats sent letters Monday to a dozen television broadcasters suggesting that they stop airing Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network, a move which a Republican commissioner on the FCC called a “chilling transgression” aimed at deplatforming the conservative networks.


“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” California Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote in a letter to the companies.

“If so, why?” they asked."
