Women Of Color And Bernie

One of the great myths of the 2016 election was that women, and particularly women of color, did not support Bernie Sanders. This article, however, shows that to be a falsehood.   Yes, Women of Color Support Bernie Sanders. It’s Time to Stop Erasing Our Voices. from r/politics

Get Well Soon, Bernie!

Thanks for all the well wishes. I’m feeling good. I’m fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover. None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us.

Unions Are BACK!

From Jacobin Magazine: Americans Are Starting to Love Unions Again, “Labor union approval is now higher than at nearly any point in the last 50 years.

Interesting op-ed on the Washington Post site recently: Sorry, Mr. Vice President, it’s Harris’s race to lose in 2020 by Hugh Hewitt.

Amazing article over on Truthout.org by Marjorie Cohn.  This one I feel is a must read.  This could actually help turn things around for working Americans. The article explains how we currently have a system of “corporate socialism” benefiting only the rich and how a “democratic socialism” system would better meet the needs of the…
