The US worker has never been so marginalized, devalued, diminished or stabbed in the back. One party idolizes the myth of "job creators" and the other parasitizes unions without giving back to them. We need a constitutional amendment ending corporate personhood, which includes eliminating the idea of money as speech that Citizen's United inflicted upon us, like a chancre on democracy.

The US worker has never been so marginalized, devalued, diminished or stabbed in the back. 

One party idolizes the myth of "job creators" and the other parasitizes unions without giving back to them. 

We need a constitutional amendment ending corporate personhood, which includes eliminating the idea of money as speech that Citizen's United inflicted upon us, like a chancre on democracy. 

Perhaps the Occupy movement will help us raise ourselves out of the morasse we've allowed ourselves to become enslimed in.
