1. Unions made the middle class. Republicans destroyed it.

2. My family was brought over by Rockefeller to work his mines

He told them the streets were paved with gold. He paid them in scrip. He mixed the italians with the Slavics hoping the language barrier would keep them apart. It didn't. Instead it made the two races inseparable on my part of the world.

When they rebelled at Ludlow, he called in the Irish mafia from Chicago. They burned nine children and four women alive, to make a point.

The miners rebelled. Mother Jones led them. REMEMBER LUDLOW became the battle cry. The Great Colorado Coal Wars started.

We won. Today, Democrats have forgotten. Labor is no longer a priority. When I was a kid, if the mine struck, the teachers would strike as would our grocery stores which were also union.

We need a new union movement in this country.

3. In case you didn't notice.

Our stupid labor leaders fell for Trumps bullshit. They actually thought Trump was going to help them. They just realized they were conned. It's not just Trump voters who are being stupid. Its like a fucking plague.
