Welcome back to Pottersville needs help if you can give it.

Kevin Drum is an anti-union hack

Kevin Drum’s Labor Contrarianism

My guess is that he want’s to go on cable TV to play the part of the anti-liberal liberal. There is good money in it.

And I lost all respect for Mother Jones when they failed to cover the Pittston coal strike. Imagine a magazine styling itself as Mother Jones and ignoring a coal strike and you begin to understand how our country went downhill.

Catholic bishops run our country

White House Openly Considers Caving to Bishops on Birth Control Coverage

We need politicians who can explain the concept of separation of separation of Church and State to the Catholic Church.

We also need a president who is not a women hating ogre.

The Way We Live Today

In Which My Mother Faces Homelessness at the Onset of a New England Winter

Obama gets the memo

Occupy protester hands President Obama a note

Mr. President: Over 4000 peaceful protesters have been arrested. While bankers continue to destroy the American economy. You must stop the assault on our 1st amendment rights. Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.

Crummell School: Heart and Soul of the Community

Crummell School: Heart and Soul of the Community

Rough cut of film about Crummell School: It’s history, importance to the community of Ivy City in NE Washington DC and what the community would like to see happen to it.

Mayor Vincent Gray, Chair Kwame Brown, are you listening?

Reopen the Franklin Shelter!

Attention Mayor Vincent Gray:

Statement from Free Franklin DC

The Franklin School building, owned by the city, has been vacant since late September 2008 when the DC government closed the homeless shelter that was housed there right before the beginning of hypothermia season. Despite promises that all of the residents would be given permanent housing, the majority wound up in other over-crowded shelters away from downtown, far from physical and mental health care and other needed services, or were put out onto the street. Three years later the city continues to break its promises to house and shelter DC residents, under-funding housing and shelter programs, including cutting $3 million from services for DC’s 6,500 homeless individuals and $20 million for affordable housing last year alone. The DC government refuses to ensure the most basic human right to housing for everyone in our community.

Reat the whole thing.
