9/15-16 News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on September 15, 2022 by jcityboneSeptember 15, 2022 Tentative deal on the railway strike!
I’m in Vancouver and will be leaving with a group of friends tomorrow for a rail trip to Banff in the Canadian Rockies. Here’s good train news from south of the Canadian border.
Labor has been a fairly bright spot in the Biden Administration. Good for Bernie too.
Sounds like Biden needs to be checking in with Bernie more often.
How much dope was Byedone doing just to stay awake?
OK. Now, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Biden did something about the planes, and busses, being loaded up by governors of states, with deportees, being relocated without their knowledge or consent to blue states? Surely this lack of humanity is as criminal as it is beyond the pall of decency.
And Florida doesn’t even have a freaking border. What’s up with that?
We want pics of Banff!
That must have been a relief for your travelling party. What was the alternative?
Actually we were fine because it’s Canadian. But good for everyone in the US.
Call me skeptical. I worked in a Right-To-Work (make serfs) my whole working life. You would not believe the absolute BS I endured. So, I am watching this whole deal big-time. And Byedone pro-workers??? Really.
I would imagine DeSantis broke all kinds of laws. But to his faux populist friends, this was “funny” to his fan base. This is not to say that Martha’s Vineyard shouldn’t be equipped to handle such emergencies, but DeSantis wanted to get a pearl clutching laugh out of it. From what I read at TOP, it appears the community pulled together for now, but I would imagine the governor of MA will have to jump in, who isn’t likely to do anything given he’s GOP.
DeSh1tface is a showboating FRight POS who knows the formula to getting on POX. If he focuses on the Obama ugly digs on MV, he’ll score points. It’s that simple. 🙁
Perhaps MA and DC and NY and Chicago should empty their prisons, and bus the newly freed to Miami and Dallas. Think anyone would notice?
Nah, not Miami. Tallahassee.
DeathSentence following the Cult-45 playbook Rules for thee not for me.
Martha’s Vineyard is handling this, as respectfully as possible given the lack of facilities. This is no place for people looking for a new life, although if it weren’t soon to be off season, there would be menial service jobs available. I believe the plan is temporary housing at a military base on Cape Cod. Beyond that, Massachusetts will deal. It’s a solid state with a reasonable government, unlike some. The governor is GOP but he knows where he lives and what he needs to do to get another Republican elected, ever.
Hope you’re right about Baker. The next governor, if the Dem candidate prevails, will likely do more about this. I suspect the migrants will be on ferries to the Cape and they will process them there. +
Couple of real POS, but their crap always climbs to the top in our species. Ukraine…..we’re supposed to support a bunch of neo-Nazis, too?
Maybe support the vast majority of Ukrainians who are not neo nazis?
T and R x 2, jcb!! 🙂 Hopefully, this will be a somewhat peaceful revolt against the anti-labor horsesh!t that went into overdrive in 1981.
Notice Bernie says it’s time for the workers to evaluate the proposal, rather than trying to push them to take a deal by their corporate masters, who also are donors to many in the Democratic Party.
Gov. Greg Abbott trolls Vice President Kamala Harris by sending migrants to her home in D.C.
Not reported here, but David Segal, who was running for the congress in the 2nd district, lost. He lost to a hedge fund manager.
I’ve been on strike once and we ended up settling for way less than we demanded.
I got mine last weekend.
Hubster and I got ours. 🙂
I can’t get one until October 1 because of the monoclonal antibodies treatment I got when I had COVID. (it may have protected me but it didn’t alleviate any of the symptoms – I had brain fog for a couple of weeks off and on).
Finally got out of the CV retreat 🙂 and went to the movies last night. I saw a terrific documentary, “Moonage Daydream.” It’s about David Bowie, and what a visual genius he was, as well as a great songwriter/performing artist. I’m a documentary freak anyway so a good one is a treat. This one is a (oldie moldie phrase) mindblower.
Hooray for my native state!
Yeah the Trumpers think this is funny and we shirk our responsibilities when we think illegal human trafficking is an issue here.
