"Rob isnt a politician anymore"
He sent out a fundraising email for Jan Angel, he's set up a website to talk about issues, he's pimping Marilyn out anywhere and everywhere he can. If the dude's not running in 2016, then he's wasting a lot of time and energy, and making Randy Pepple look like a fucking moron.

"(1851 is his exact date—this growth becomes worldwide and does not slow until 1971, at the very moment the truce between labor and capital, the Golden Age of capitalism, comes to an end)"
I'm not sure how one could look at the most militant years of unionism that we've ever seen, particularly 1890 to 1930, and file those under the heading "Truce between labor and capital".

I'd like to join my fellow citizens of Centralia in our declaration of war, finally, on Chehalis. Your mints shall be ours, and we're taking the Yard Bird too.
