Time for Labor to Assert Thier Rights

The Washington Legislature stopped labor rights legislation recently, believe it or not, due to an e-mail. It was a pretext, of course, so on the one hand they could say they were trying to look out for the rights of workers, and on the other hand they could actually do the bidding of their Corporate Paymasters and Bosses.

"Commoner" To Publish More Often

The "Commoner" web log and commentary will be posting more often as of this week, as our readers get informative viewpoints about the pressing issues of the day from the Party of Commons. We will also keep you informed about the Senate campaign of our chairman, Mark Greene, for the election of 2010.

Mark Greene will also be accepting legal assistant consultancy positions on a case-by-case basis to pay the bills for both himself and the Party of Commons, so if you need any legal forms or papers filled out, just contact Mark at mark@partyofcommons.com for a review of your case and a possible contract.

Mark, a veteran of the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard, is also seriously considering running for the local council as an interim position between now and the possibility of becoming a U.S. senator in 2011.

In other words, the public schools should basically be an adjunct of Corporate America, and if the schools don't toe the line in exactly the format that Gates and Company dictate, then the spigot of money from Gates' philanthropy, now, that the government has all but run out of money, will be cut off, as it was for the Seattle Public Schools from 2000 or 2001 until the recent grant of 7.2 million dollars this month.

As the pressure to bend to the will of corporations and moguls persists, the schools no longer inspire kids to be independent thinkers, but robotic drones, ready to go off and march to the orders of corporate field marshals such as Gates, Buffett and Ellison; thereby, becom…
