I am grateful for the Labor movement, that the power of business owners has been balanced out so the benefits of capitalism are more fairly shared and so that the deplorable work conditions of past centuries are fading memories, but there are many future challenges to face together. May we always keep Labor strong!
I’m just going to say it. This talk we’re beginning to hear from Trump and his surrogates about a Muslim registry and internment camps is dangerously un-American horseshit. It’s historically ignorant, it’s hateful, and we must put a stop to it. We’ve been here before. We know where this leads.
As a non-believer, I disagree deeply with the religion of Islam. But if, despite all our efforts, the registry ever becomes reality, I will register myself and stand with my fellow citizens. The freedom of religion is one of our most sacred American principles, but it will die if we don’t protect it.
