Cops should not be allowed to have unions. They already have the bosses on their side; they don't need one.
Jun 6 Linda J commented on A Quick Interview With Journalist Chris Hedges.
More Florida Democrats voted for Bush than voted for Nader. So you're going to have admit that Gore blew it. Not even his own party wanted to vote for him. Plus when the Congressional Black Caucus tried to get a recount, Gore didn't back them up. He let it go. Ralph did not lose that election for him; he lost it himself.

May 12 Linda J commented on Video Editorial: One Theory to Explain All the Bertha Troubles.
I am nostalgic for those slightly less absurd days BB (before Bertha). We can only hope Brett's solution is taken seriously.

@4 yes, if you're Jewish, you will not have a problem living in Israel. But Ethiopian Jews do seem to be facing some difficulties. http://www.usnews.com/news/world/article…

Really, though, who wouldn't want to live in a lively cosmopolitan bubble, ignoring the fact you are involved in the theft of the indigenous peoples land and the ongoing brutal repression to keep it.

Even Israelis sometimes do look over the apartheid fence though. Like when they go up in the hills overlooking Gaza while their air force bombs the shit out of the (mainly) civilians who live there (last summer killing over 500 children). http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/ju…

May 7 Linda J commented on Transit Is a Social Justice Issue.
Thanks for this new info, Dan. And for anyone who agrees that people should be organizing to get better transit, please check out the Transit Riders Union. Website: http://transitriders.org

Transit riders in this group were a major force in getting the current Metro low income fare. The membership makes the decisions democratically on how to work on getting lower bus fares and better service. It's a great group. Check out the website and join up! ;)
