Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

The Truth is Out There. Whos Truth?

More About:

This post contains large amounts of a direct mailing from NUHW, the new, or rogue, labor Union, depending on your point of view. Even though they are 180 degrees opposed to what many SEIU members believe and support the coincidence in what was done by SEIU in response to Democratic support of NUHW is the exact opposite of what was decided by the MSEASEIU. 
I expect this post to p.o. some of the people I work with, many I call friends. Open discussion can only be a friend to Union Democracy, please take this in that spirit.

The cop who saved the day is a black man, not a white woman.

The cop who saved the day is a black man, not a white woman.

More military lies or just military incompetence?

This just in from the Daily Kos

The female cop who rushed into gunfire is no less a hero, for trying, but the truth is coming out.
The real hero was a black male.

Tell Limbaugh and Beck This is A Union Member

Sgt. Kimberly Munley

Sgt. Kimberly Munley is a hero, she did her job with no hesitation and risked her life to stop a massacre.
Thirteen Dead, thirty wounded at Fort Hood, Texas, on Nov. 5.

She walked into the scene and did her best, she shot the alleged assailant, Maj. Nidal Hasan, four times, and was shot in return. She is recovering from her wound and is in stable condition.

Her Union, AFGE, has a site where you can send your best wishes to Sgt. Munley. Just click here and send a Union sister a message. All messages will be collected and AFGE will deliver the messages to Munley on Friday, Nov. 20.

Munley, 34, is a member of AFGE Local 1920 and the mother of a three-year-old. She and her partner were the first to arrive at the Scene of the massacre, where Hasan allegedly opened fire.

AFGE President John Gage said Munley “acted with great heroism.”

Lt. Gen. Bob Cone, commanding general at Fort Hood, told CNN that Munley’s actions stopped Hasan cold and saved lives.

He said Munley is a “trained, active first responder” who acted quickly after she “just happened to encounter the gunman.”
Editorial comment: Officer Munley is one of ours. I wonder how Glen Beck feels about this Union member?

Picket for Workers at Narraguagus Bay Health Care Facility

This article has been reprinted from the Local 771 MSEASEIU website. I have taken some liberty with the formatting and presentation.

No pay raise in a year, management wants to make that four years.A three year contract with no raises is management's idea of a contract offer. (I wonder if they will guarantee their rates for residents for three years?)

The workers have the support of the town and on Monday, they picketed.

Tuesday, December 3, 2009

After pressure from workers, religious leaders, and the local labor council SEIU agrees to elections.

Santa Rosa, Calif.—Six months after trying to have Union elections the employees at Santa Rosa Memorial hospital get to choose between rival NUHW and SEIU-UHW or to have no Union.

The employees have been trying to form a union with the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW). The National Labor Relations Board today scheduled the union election for Dec. 17 and 18.
SEIU has spent a great time and effort resulting in delays to this election, claiming generally that the election would be unfair to the employees.
