Ah May Day


No this isn't about ladies in long white dresses dancing around a pole with ribbons.



This is about workers who were treated like near slaves at the whim of their employers. This is about the robber barons of old who in these modern times have been resurrected from a by gone era to try and do the same shit they did back then by paying off politicians. This den of thieves thinks nothing of taking away the rights of average Americans while lining their pockets with the hard earned cash of middle America. Republican or Democrat they're both guilty. Republicans do it openly saying it's for your own good. Yes getting kicked in the nuts sounds like a wonderful idea too as long as you're doing the kicking.

So where are we in all this? I'd say in the very early stages. It will take awhile to remove eight state legislators from Wisconsin and it will be the governors' turn early next year. Many unfair laws in other states are in the process of being overturned. But exactly how much patience do people have? We're starting to see a bit of violence around the edges with fringe groups. And why is that you might ask? In watching one of those cartoon movies last night it hit me like an Acme anvil. Most if not all that is presented to us on TV and in the media gives a formula for success. And that is whoever inflicts the most violence wins and it doesn't matter if you're wearing a white hat or a black one. And sadly this is presented to the youngest viewers even before they learn to walk.
We truly need a third party in this country. One that is not bought and paid for by corporate America. A party that is funded by average folk like you and me. A party that represents the majority and not the top one percent. We do have the power if we just get organized and fund it and it wouldn't really take that much. But we need some leaders that represent us who are willing to say enough is enough.

Get out and enjoy the sun.

We definitely need another party. The two party system is our biggest problem. The people do not matter only the party. I wonder how many unions if any will survive the efforts to break them all but...

BBC said...

We shouldn't have any parties at all, other than camping and boating and ice cream parties.

S.W. Anderson said...

Have a third party with a large following and you'll end up with a greatly weakened, splintered government that can't get out of its own way, again and again. That's the Achilles heel of too many parliamentary democracies. Only they have an out, in that if the government falls the parties have to work out an arrangement, a coalition usually, and try again.

It's winner take all in our system, with two to four years of gridlock ensured if power is divided, as it usually is. BBC will probably cheer for gridlock, but that can be dangerous and costly, depending on circumstances.

What we most need is for the voting public to fund elections, as individuals and exclusively. Since that doesn't seem to stand a chance, it would help if we were to have strict one-person, one-vote rules. That means no more Electoral College; whoever wins the popular vote wins the election, period.

And, proportional representation would help. If Dems win, say, 56 percent of the vote in a state that has 10 congressional districts, Dems get six House seats, with the rest going to Republicans and/or others if any others competed.

I damn sure would, nothing can change until things go to hell.

I'll drink to your last statement Billy. Let's throw a party. How about one of those wild naked spiritualist parties with dancing around the fire.

I think the unions are ready to start fighting back. It's just a matter of getting recalls and referendums on the ballot.

You're right SW just look no farther than Canada.

Two parties, 197, the little guy is always gonna get screwed. I'm in favor of the latter because it'll provide more colorful characters. Entertain me, power-mad yokels.

One more thing: I am all for weakening the medical care that medicare supplies....as long as the entire house and senate agree to drop their lifetime guaranteed health care and join us on the phone...listening to the music while waiting to make an appointment we can't afford.
