The Lizard I think is already toast as a candidate. Crazy Eyes, not so much. She'll be running all the way to the end, either as a 'pub or some flavour of independent. And this idiot is less viable than Pat Paulson as a candidate.

But what does Roger think? I haven't seen that answer yet, and it does matter. That and how much the koch bros are going to pony up for campaign dollars.

The kochs will back the candidate most likely to stay bought, like scott walker. That kasich is talking compromise at the last minute will put doubts in their heads about that. Roger? I think he'll back the idiot from Texas, it's worked for him before.

He said again he hopes unions will compromise. :lol:

Hey, John. You don't get to offer "compromise" after you lose the battle.http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs23/f/2007/342/c/c/Flip_The_Finger_by_Brown_syndrome.gif

Message from Governor John Kasich:Though I would have preferred a different outcome tonight, the people of Ohio have spoken and I respect their decision.I’m grateful to all the volunteers who helped in this effort. You were essential and your work is appreciated. It was also inspiring to meet so many people who share our vision of recreating the jobs-friendly climate Ohio needs.In just 10 months, we’ve made significant progress towards getting Ohio back on track. We closed a record $8 billion shortfall while cutting taxes by $300 million, we improved Ohio’s credit outlook, we reformed Medicaid to control costs while improving services to the neediest, and we took job-creation efforts out of the hands of bureaucrats and entrusted them to private-sector experts that are already showing significant results. In fact, in 2011 alone Ohio has fostered more than 190 economic development projects that helped create or save more than 41,000 jobs and $2.4 billion in payroll, while generating $1.9 billion in new capital investments.I’m proud of our progress, but more work is needed.Despite tonight’s outcome, it doesn’t change the fact that Ohio's ability to create a jobs-friendly climate is impacted by local governments' ability to reduce their costs. Just as Ohio had to get its fiscal house in order—and make tough choices to do it—local governments must as well. Ohio must find innovative ways to help local governments provide good services and good value. According to the US Census, local government taxes increased 42 percent between 1999 and 2009, almost twice the rate of inflation. That’s an astonishing increase when, during the same period, Ohio lost more jobs than any other state except California and Michigan, population growth was flat, school test scores didn’t improve and personal income suffered. We can do better and we will.Ohio’s problems developed over time because too many people cared more about popularity than about making the tough—and sometimes unpopular—choices Ohio needed. Folks should know by now that that’s not my way. We won’t get Ohio back on track in a day, but our lives and our work aren’t sprints, they’re marathons, and we strive for bigger rewards than the fleeting praise of the here and now.We’ll keep moving forward, mindful of the lessons we learn, and we’ll restore the greatness of our state. I’m grateful for the chance to work with the people of Ohio on this mission. Together we can do it.Sincerely,JohnJohn KasichGovernor of Ohio

Me too. Balancing management power is critical to battling back against rich-get-richer-poor-get-poorer.Now all you union folks go out and participate in running your union. And all you non-union employed folks go out there and unionize.http://www.tristat.com/images/organize1.jpg
We are not sinners. We are not abominations. We were not born broken, and we do not need salvation. We have embraced our right to think beyond the boundaries of religion. We are living and loving our lives free from faith. -- Sarah Morehead

"There is power in a union."

That song has a fascinating history. The first song by that name was written by "Joe Hill," Joel Emmanuel Hägglund. Hill was a member and sometime leader of the International Workers of the World ("Wobblies"), which sought to form One Industrial Union Grand or One Big Union (OBU). His 1913 version of the song, also set to "There is Power in the Blood," was [link]advocacy for the OBU,http://www.folkarchive.de/hill.html[/link]. The IWW still presents itself as a [link]"union for all workers",http://www.iww.org/en[/link]. Its long association with anarchists cost it a great deal in credibility and lives of its members.





Hill's lyrics were powerful in a different way than the version sung by Billy Bragg:


Would you have freedom from wage slavery,


Then join in the grand Industrial band;


Would you from mis'ry and hunger be free,


Then come! Do your share, like a man.





CHORUS:


There is pow'r, there is pow'r


In a band of workingmen.


When they stand hand in hand,


That's a pow'r, that's a pow'r


That must rule in every land --


One Industrial Union Grand.

...


If you like sluggers to beat off your head,


Then don't organize, all unions despise,


If you want nothing before you are dead,


Shake hands with your boss and look wise.





Come, all ye workers, from every land,


Come join in the grand Industrial band.


Then we our share of this earth shall demand.


Come on! Do your share, like a man.

Hill's version was sung by Utah Phillips, modified to a better choice of words:








I cannot yet tell when the lyrics sung by Billy Bragg were introduced.





Another IWW song from the same era (ca. 1908) tells the same story in a different way: We Have Fed You All for a Thousand Years.
