We are multiple generations now with no experience with strikes, and I see a lot of confused, well meaning people who want to help but don’t know strike etiquette.

1. Never cross a picket line of striking workers.

2. Never purchase or take free goods from a company who’s workers are striking

3. Honk to support strikers if you drive by a picket line.

4. Join strikers on the picket line even if it’s not your strike, but follow their directions and defer to them while there.

5. Say “that’s great, the strike is working, the company should negotiate with their workers” whenever someone complains about profits lost, inconveniences or other worker-phobic rhetoric. Always turn it back on the company, who has all the power and money.

My amusement over the same sex marriage debate has steadily ebbed with each fucked up thinkpiece I see on the subject and I am now suffering from a severe deficit of chill.

The opposition appears to be focusing on six main issues:

1. Freedom of speech! (I must be allowed to censor gay kissing)

2. Freedom of religion! (My religious school must be allowed to discriminate even if it takes public money)

3. Parents’ rights! (I must be allowed to abuse my gay children)

4. Protect the family! (Gay people must not be allowed to have families)

5. History! (We used to discriminate and why quit when you’re ahead)

6. Tone! (Why are you so rude about me discriminating against you?)

If these arguments are taken literally they would appear to endorse the most heinous shit you can imagine, and since they insist they aren’t homophobic at all and only stand on principle, presumably they would back me up on this.

The same arguments could justify virulent sectarianism and all kinds of discriminatory measures, many of which have historical precedent, and minority religious groups that buy into them should be very careful, I think.

“Next Tuesday, McDonald’s workers at restaurants in 10 cities will walk off the job at lunch, waging the first-ever nationwide strike to combat sexual harassment.” 

– TIME’S UP

McDonald’s Workers Are Going on Strike Over Sexual Harassment

NEXT TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18th – SUPPORT THE STRIKE!!!

This Trump policy is NOT about security. The policy is a white nationalist dream come true. It tortures an ‘out group’, and it sends a message to racists in the GOP base that Trump stands with you.

Poor Senator Collins. Such a victim of circumstances…

Susan Collins now says her constituents are attempting to illegally bribe her with this campaign. 

Fasten your seat belt, Senator.                                                           You ain’t seen NOTHING yet.

Oh, it’s no bribe. It’s a threat.

Republicans know Kavanaugh is a rapey dude so they had a contingency plan. Sickening.

Botham Jean NEVER had a single ticket, a single arrest, a single conviction, or even a single behavioral note in college.

Not one. Ever.

For the police and media to attempt to insult his character and integrity today is a [predictable] disgrace.

Why are police investigating the victim and not the drunk cop who executed an innocent man?

Wow!

Criminalizing the victim.

Knew this was coming.

White ppl this is why Collin Keapernick kneels. Not to dishonor a flag r a anthem but to pt out police brutality and how they try to destroy the blk victims character after they have been unjustly killed. This is why he kneels

War makes money for lenders. The lenders create nothing. Their profits come from stoking conflicts.
