Yes, the blog this comes from has a major axe to grind. Don't fucking care, the quote is brilliant, poignant, and a cautionary tale.
“When our children and grandchildren look back to assess our performance during this era, they will bitterly note that during a time when we should have been aggressively expanding public investment to employ all of our many unemployed people, launch bold projects for national renewal and progressive development, save our planet and light a rocket under our massively underutilized productive capacity to build a prosperous future for our progeny, ...

I just sent out an important note about tonight's "Live from the Coffee Bunker" show.  Did you get it?  No?  Then you probably haven't circled my Music Page yet!  Remedy that…

Fellow travelers: Know of any services that will alert me of low fares to Seattle WITHOUT requiring a specific date?

I have opinions on gun control, mental health, and public safety. And I've shared them with my senators and congresswoman, not just posted stuff on G+. Have you?

Nope, lol. I am promoting a charity concert  on that day with poet Alice Osborn. We are partnering with the United Way to raise money for the families and community of Newtown. We will be livestreaming if you can catch it. https://www.facebook.com/events/312169405551054/

Remember: If you're a media outlet and you're more concerned about keeping advertisers than informing your readers/viewers, there are always part-time bloggers who aren't afraid to call bullshit and TAKE your readers/viewers from you.

If that's the case, then I weep for the future.  So few people out there are truly plugged in these days, and sadly it's not currently enough to radically turn the tide against ignorance.  I know things are changing, but I'm worried that the change is happening too slow.

I'm torn on the whole "Right to work" issue.

On the one hand, I live in the land of the "you can't replace a light switch in your own house without calling an electrician" union.  I've played at convention centers where a friend was told he couldn't plug his boom box into a wall socket without a union member doing it for him (for $65 or something like that).  The kind of union where the "qualified professional" has to inform us that his parole officer won't let him carry a knife, so we need to cut the tail off that bowline ourselves.

On the other hand, Wal*Mart employees NEED a frickin' union.  So do teachers.  In many cases, it's not that the union members are overpaid, it's that the corporation is exploiting a labor force suffering historically high unemployment.

How is it possible that organizations that brought us things like "the weekend" and "sick days" are now responsible for the image of one construction worker actually shoveling while 14 overpaid guys stand around talking?

With Right-To-Work laws, there's logic on both sides.  Without them, you don't need to join a union to get a job– that's fair –but you still have to pay their dues if your salary's been affected by their efforts?  Sorry, but this sounds an awful lot like how Homeowner's Associations justify their shitty existence (we collectively bargain with the utilities… now cut your grass and paint your trim this color or we'll put a lien on your house).

It's hard to support anyone that smells like an HOA, and yet an unorganized labor force always leads back to the same place: sweatshops.

Maybe if we could strike down Right-To-Work laws and at the same time pass the Union Non-Douchebag Act of 2013, I'd be in a more comfortable place on this issue.

It's not about legality, it's about the huge power imbalance between the owners and the workers.  Right-to-work and other labor-bashing laws are designed to make sure everyone but the rich remain powerless.

I imagine the only food this pizza joint serves is SPAM, seeing as how they're spamming G+ with fake locations like this one.
