AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard Trumka delivered this fiery speech at the United Steelworkers convention in July of this year. Take the time to watch it. It is worth it.

Election Day is bearing down on us quickly and many people and organizations are working hard to elect their candidates. One such group is the Minnesota AFL-CIO  which has gathered over 500 delegates in Duluth this week to listen to candidates, pass resolutions, and get fired up for the remainder of this election cycle. Monday, September 15, delegates will take part in “Turn Around America” and will doorknock the city of Duluth, talking to union families about the issues and labor-endorsed candidates. WorkdayMinnesota has coverage of the convention.

I am reminded of an old Doobie Brothers tune, ‘Takin it to the streets’.

You don’t know me but I’m your brother
I was raised here in this living hell
You don’t know my kind in your world
Fairly soon the time will tell
You, telling me the things you’re gonna do for me
I aint blind and I don’t like what I think I see

Take this message to my brother
You will find him everywhere
Wherever people live together
Tied in poverty’s despair
You, telling me the things you’re gonna do for me
I aint blind and I don’t like what I think I see

Here is an excellent live version of the Doobie Brothers preforming performing, ‘Takin’ It To The Streets’, that I would like to dedicate to the brothers and sisters in Duluth.

My previous post about the new GI Bill noted that it was part of the 162 billion supplemental war appropriations legislation. It is unfortunate that it became part of the compromise to continue funding the occupation of Iraq. The human, societal, and economic cost of the occupation of Iraq continue to rise but it is sometimes hard for everyone to understand.

The folks at American Friends Service Committee and Antiwar.com released this short video that gives some meaning to the cost.

 

 

and here is a classic antiwar song, “War” by Edwin Starr set to images from the Vietnam era by YouTube user justine4444.

With summer like weather finally here its time to make hay while the sun shines. We have been busy working in the garden and clearing our heads of all the noise from the world events. I have put together a little music video of the results of our labor.

 

 

 

 

Stay tuned for the sequel!
