Labor Day salutations from Happy Larryville, GN!
My goodness…Cone of Shame-stomping? Is there no depth to which some cats won’t sink?
Needs moar inter-species hate crime laws.
“Fighting Butchers” sounds like the name of a Schutzstaffel intermural fußball team…an impression enhanced by the sign-bearer’s quasi-toothbrush moustache. And the guy to the left of him looks like he works at an Orange Jooless stand.
an Orange Jooless stand.
I really don’t want to know what their ‘secret ingredient’ is.
Big shout-out to the goons from the American Federation of Musicians, Local 4, for threatening me and a drummer (both under the age of eighteen) in a dark parking lot forty-two years ago and thereby teaching me an important life lesson about unions. And their supporters.
Happy Labor Day, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
Happy Labor Day, folks.
Good morning, Sven!
Back atcha, Paddy.
Little cooler today--huge easterly winds here last night for about an hour--but so far today things is calm.
For no good reason, I was looking through some of my grandfather’s stuff and re-reading a book, The Inheritance, that his union put out on the 50th anniversary of their founding. This year it would have marked 100 years. Anyhow, the book is an outtake of a movie that they did in 1964 and I found it on youtube:
That’s the first part and the other 3 parts are available as well. It’s an interesting look back not just at unions but at the traditional immigrant experience.
But something else occurred to me as I was researching online some of the names that appeared in some of these books. For instance, lists of union members killed by employers or police during various demonstrations--was there other information available about their lives or the specific incidents where they were killed? In some cases, I got hits on their names; in other cases, nothing.
So my question: are we moving towards a time where if something can’t be found by a google search, it doesnt exist?
I think we are, Sven. I know that students use online resources exclusively, even when looking for books and articles. At the university , I’m not sure how many students even read physical journal articles as compared to their online versions.
I tend to agree with that; glad I learned how to do “analog” research, too.
How the hard-working, dedicated pizza box employment ad recruits TSA helps keep us safe:
TSA “officers”; what a farking pawthetic, condescending, expensive and liberty-infringing joke they are. But then, the same can be said for nearly our entire government.
I thought ‘twist and inspect’ would involve a blue glove.
A new groping technique?
What’s the motto of the TSA? ‘Grope and Hope’?
