It is not very often that you hear a politician from any party get up and tell it exactly the way it is.
This speech is an exception to the rule.
These are extremely important times for working class families. Not only is the economy and unemployment doing terrible damage to the working class - the corporations are still taking more as we suffer.
Labor Unions play a key role now and will play a much more important role in the coming years. Labor is the only organized group still running interference for the American workers.
Most in the dwindling middle class are fast asleep but they are soon in for a rude awakening. The people are about to be pushed to the brink by corporate greed and organized labor will be sought after to bring the middle class back to life.
History repeats itself - you heard him say that "they want to bring us back to the twenties."
Well, the thirties followed the twenties and so did the resourgence of labor. That resourgence happened when the people were pushed down as low as they could go - just like what we see developing now.
