This is the May Day Tradition - a day for labor. This aspect of our American tradition is all but wiped out with unions disappearing. Today there are three groups rejecting the status quo and taking action.
- Immigrants are marching in the streets - questioning unfair treatment, detentions and intimidation.
- Dock Workers are closing Ports on the West Coast - questioning Iraq war continuance.
- Truckers are striking all around the country, especially in the East Coast.
Oh, and is it impossible for elected officials - including Democratic congress critters - to do the right thing? Rhetorical question.
But, pick any elected official today and question him or her about something that matters to real human beings - not corporations. Do it today, May Day.
