    WHERE ARE THE UNION LEADERS?
    WHERE ARE THE THOUSANDS OF U.A.W. WORKERS WHO SHOULD BE IN THE STREETS AND ANGRY?
    WHY ISN’T THE AFL-CIO SENDING ITS LEADERS?

    I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THEIR SILENCE…NOR THAT OF THE 77 CONGRESSIONAL CO-SPONSORS OF HR 676!! WHY AREN’T THEY AT ALL THESE DEMONSTRATIONS? WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR?
    OH, AND AS AN ASIDE—

    WHEN IS MAX BAUCUS GOING TO BE CHARGED WITH RACKETEERING?

      PETRA MACHAR, I agree. We need to take to the streets in a big way.
      Here’s what John Conyers had to say about Single Payer and Barack Obama:
      May 30, 2008 Indiana University Southeast
      “Well, listen to Amy Goodman.” She’s got the tapes of him making some of the most brilliant remarks in Support of HR 676 that anybody has ever made, but he ain’t making them now.”
      The 45 second video clip is here:

    I was just at another site, in a comment thread where many were fed up with the way our need for real reform is being met with fake, watered-down solutions – kind of like our need for heath care! We were all writing Congress, but feeling that it does no good because we are not writing huge checks to them, and our competition is. So, I thought perhaps on July 4 we needed to organize a nationwide demonstration, vigil, just a being out in the street and showing that people really care about this issue, and that only real reform will do. July 4 would be good because many will be off work, but also, many will be vacationing. Good date, or bad date? I’m soliciting opinions. I came to this site and saw that these folks JUST HAD a national day of action, but I never heard about it, and I keep up with this issue pretty well. My notion was to agree on a date and then press PNHP, CNA, other unions, Michael Moore, MoveOn, and everyone else we can think of to publicize it and participate. Everyone!! Not just one organization here or there. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks –
