Workers need to stop buying into this big corporate lie. Hard work will not make you rich. Your boss is not your friend. The only true friend of the working class is the socialist, anarchist or the communist. Yet most of the flak that these groups get comes from the very people they are trying to defend and promote. The working man has no greater ally than the far left. Don't trust your boss, don't trust democrats or republicans. When you see someone waving a red flag, a black flag or a red/black flag thank them for standing up for you. Thank them for going to jail for you. Thank them for getting pummeled by the police for you.

Unions endorse candidates, but cannot fire employees regarding how they vote.....there is a difference. Again though, any liberal working for the Koch brothers obviously cares more about money than their convictions so deep down they are republican anyways.

gearsprocket: Unions do threaten their members.

Have you ever wondered why businesses are outsourcing and leaving the United States? It is because of liberals. It is because of the government, the lawyers, the environmentalists, and other anti business groups. It is because of you that business will continue to leave the US. Prices will continue to rise as the cost of doing business here increases. It is funny to me that you complain of jobs and then turn around and demonize companies.


"Liberals" are not the boogeyman. Look at this way: We have 2 competing groups. We have employers and the employed. The employed must sell their labor in order to live since they own no capital. The employers own the means of production yet produce nothing. The employed group is being trampled on in the name of profits, nothing more nothing less. The employer exists not to create jobs or benefit society; they exist to make a profit and they will do this any which way they can. The employed are inherently exploited because of the fact that their employers need for profit. The employed must do whatever necessary for their right to live (which includes having to work) and to be as free from exploitation as possible. This is a class issue, not partisan liberal/conservative BS. After all, even the libbiest liberal that ever liberaled is still a capitalist.

We just need to make sure that corporations follow the same restrictions as unions. the board of directors and CEO should be elected by the workers just like they are in unions.

jigger: madgonad: Socialism works great for the military, police, fire, and health care. For things that we all need or will need - socialism is the best way to efficiently provide services, reduce free-riders, and save money.

The military saves money? Police forces save money? Ok, if you say so.


It saves money over everybody having to hire private security.

Leeds: since many Americans are desperate for a job ..... they have to go along with what their bosses say

How many out of work people have bosses? I'd laugh if these two comments were a paragraph apart, but it's unsettling that they are back to back almost as though the author lost his train of thought mid sentence and just said fark it and kept typing.


Those actually aren't contradictory in the slightest. Currently many people who have jobs are very much aware that they can be easily replaced at any time since there are plenty of unemployed people with similar skills to theirs. They know that this is an employers market, not an employees.

Which is exactly how the "Job Creators" like it.

No, it's because they can pay people next to nothing there. Full stop. No other motivation is needed.

mekki: madgonad: mekki: How is this legal?

This may be free speech but it's extortion.

You could take a voter intimidation angle. That is a felony in many states.

Then why isn't anyone doing this? You would think a lawyer would take a look at this and start drooling over the potential class action lawsuit. But no one has budged.


I'm sure someone is. And if they start taking action right now, maybe it will get into court in time for the 2016 elections. The Koch brothers could keep this tied up in the courts for a decade if they really wanted to.

Not anarcho-communists or anarcho-syndicalists. There's many different schools of thought when it comes to anarchism.

FTFA: Unbelievably - coercing employees like this to support certain political candidates is not illegal. And it's just the latest example of how the super-rich have a lot more free speech rights now in America than working people do

The Russian press is now reporting on US politics more accurately than the American press. We're through the looking glass here.

It wasn't all that great when unions did it either.

What we need to return to one citizen, one vote. Everyone else from corporations to the Fraternal Lodge of Elks can go pound sand. No money from any entity except a citizen with a per-person cap of $10,000 per year in total political donations.

/problem solved
