By Sarah Jaffe, Religion DispatchesThe nation's largest employer has long been the Holy Grail for labor organizers, seemingly impossible to organize -- until now. READ MORE»
YES--THE WORKER IS WORTHY OF THEIR (LIVABLE) WAGES. After all, what too many Greedy and Selfish Managers and others forget IS that their employees are other companies customers--Once that domino of falling wages start--it is near impossible to stop. I know because I see it first hand, After all, I work at a fast food restaurant--Wendy's,--where the more money that the Middle class has the more they eat out--the more people eat out the more people restaurants like Wendy's can employ and keep employed in turn the more hours we work the more money we have to spend on our interests, personally I like movies, especially artistic ones and foreign ones, where I can get a different perspective of life that just the Hollywood/American Way of seeing things--which is neither wrong nor the only way of seeing things--and so on and so on and on . . . .
By the way, the adult Bible Class that I am in is studying the Book of Acts, where we are reminded that the Sadducee and Pharisees who were the two groups who once made up the Sanhedrin, the high Jewish court--which not only sent Jesus to the Romans to be Crucified, but also tried to prevent the start of the Christian Church--were (Sadducee=Rich Business men) (Pharisees - The Religious Establishment)--Today, we have the Unholy Alliance of Big Business(the Fossil Fuel Industries)--The Religious Right--United together in the Republican Party=The Modern Day Sanhedrin. The more things change the more they stay the same.
IN SUPPORT OF GREENPEACE--I would also like to share a portion of this e-mail-->
The President’s top drilling safety expert has called for a ‘timeout’ on Arctic drilling. We agree.
Tell President Obama to suspend Shell’s Arctic drilling permits.
Shell finally got its chance to drill for oil off the coast of Alaska this fall. It didn’t go so well.
A series of equipment, permit and weather-related mishaps along with general incompetence prevented the company from drilling as planned. The failure was six years and $4.5 billion in the making and only confirmed what experts have been saying all along — drilling for oil in the Arctic will never be safe.
But Shell isn’t stopping. The company intends to try again in 2013 and the decision about whether or not it gets that opportunity is being made right now. This is our chance to stop Shell from drilling in the Arctic next year and beyond.
Take action and help us send 50,000 messages to President Obama this week calling for Shell’s Arctic drilling permits to be suspended.
Tell President Obama to call for a ‘timeout’ from Arctic drilling and suspend Shell’s permits.
We know that safe drilling in the Arctic isn’t possible. Shell has proven it this year. And the President’s top drilling safety chief agrees, saying in a recent interview that someone outside the industry needs to call a ‘timeout’ to reexamine whether or not Arctic drilling is even possible using current technology.
That someone is President Obama.
This should be a straightforward decision given that Shell still hasn’t received the final go ahead for drilling from the Obama administration because one of its key support vessels has yet to pass inspection with the US Coast Guard.
The President needs to know that you are paying attention to what’s going on in the Arctic. Take action and send a message today. . . . .
