McCain Cons Workers

[There is nothing new, I guess about Republicans doing their best to con American workers. As the Krugman column below indicates, it has been going on since Nixon. This really gets to me personally, as I was a blue collar worker summers during my college days and really cared about my buddies and vice versa — construction, factory, waste product recycling. Not all that stuff was healthy or safe. I would not have been able to work to 74, had I continued as a physical worker. My back would not have made it. The rip off which Krugman predicts with an McCain election scares me stiff — particularly with his back up who is a featured speaker at anti-American parity conferences (The Alaskan Independence Party this year)

Let us hope that American workers are not yet again conned. Read Krugman for economic details. Ed Kent]


The Real Plumbers of Ohio
By Paul Krugman
John McCain’s strategy, in this final stretch, is based on
the belief that Republicans can still pursue plutocratic
policies while claiming to be the party of regular guys.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
