"Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square f/the American home-but not f/housing. They are strong f/labor-but they are stronger f/restricting labor's rights. They favor min wage-the smaller the min wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity f/all-but they won't spend money f/teachers or f/schools. They think modern medical care & hospitals are fine-f/people who can afford them..." --Harry S. Truman

“I am a huge fan of Eleanor Roosevelt, and I have long collected portraits and mementos from her career ... She championed many causes that are important to me: civil rights, child labor laws, refugees and human rights. She drew harsh criticism from the media and some in government for daring to define the role of First Lady in her own terms... But her spirit and commitment were indomitable, and she never let her critics slow her down.” - Hillary, Living History

Labor rights lawyer: ‘Political winds blowing the right way’ to pass ENDA - "The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is set to be reintroduced before both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on Thursday. The legislation would put into place federal protections for LGBT people in the workplace, making it illegal to fire or otherwise discriminate against a person because of their sexual orientation or gender identity."

The Architect of America's Downfall | This is one of the best graphics I've ever come across. Ronald Reagan was the worst president in US history. Every horrible thing happening in America today, i.e.: Religion infiltrating government; War on drugs; Downfall of the middle class; Loss of labor rights; Class division; War on women; Belief that the poor are lazy -- lies about welfare queens; and so much more.

As co-founders of the United Farm Workers, he and Dolores Huerta fought for and won higher wages, better working conditions, and the right to unionize—giving more workers the opportunity to build a better future.
