A good Day of the Dead and All Souls’ Day to all. My offerings, and please talk to one another; there’s a lot going down here that may or may not resolve soon.

“There are no safe options for “rerouting”. @POTUS the #NoDAPL fight can not wait!” http://bit.ly/2e3986K
from wsws, and may i say ‘kiss my grits, and suck it, trumpka, you sell-out’:
“Both Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are committed to expanding oil and natural gas production in the US, regardless of environmental or cultural considerations, or workers’ rights.
Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, took a predictably reactionary stance on the anti-DAPL protests, claiming falsely that they were hurting workers in the area. Trumka released a statement defending the pipeline and attacking protesters for “hold[ing] union members’ livelihoods and their families’ financial security hostage to endless delay.”
Actually, it is Trumka and the lavishly paid union apparatus that hold workers and their families hostage to the profit motives of big business, not the protesters.”
World series championship, game 7: Go Cubbies! and phooey on the Wahoos! Score now: 5 to 1 Cubbies, top of the 5th.
“The Donald merely makes me nervous, while Hillary makes me want to take poison. It is the difference between an acid trip and death by sinus drainage. His truly great strength is that he is not Hillary. The election is really a contest between placeholders for conflicting interests, for different views of the world. Few would want either if there were another choice.”
