The Writer's Strike - Guest Editorial From KWW
The following is excerpted from a comment by Kitchen Window Woman of The Dishpan Chronicles addressing the Writer's Strike. It is eloquent and well written and for those reasons I asked KWW if I could use it as a post. KWW is a Vietnam-era Army Veteran and an esteemed member of The American Patriot Institute. She currently has an excellent post at The Dishpan Chronicles which examines why, what she calls the Three Blind Mice, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein, no longer deserve our support. I encourage all to go and read it.
The Dishpan Chronicles
I've always supported unions. I was born supporting unions, its in my Irish blood. I also have a distaste for those who don't do the work bagging massive, unimaginable profits. I think of corporate CEO's as parasites - they latch on and suck the lifeblood out of their host targets.
Its funny in our society and in your business the focus is always on the outward display - the star, the new release, the related products in the stores - when the many creative "little people" are the fascinating ones. I love the creative process and think that all who take part in the production of "entertainment" should be paid extremely well. Why award the useless big heads at the top for merely screaming,"feed me"? They need to be divested of their unearned power over others.
We have so many talented people here in the States yet we export jobs instead paying our own people a decent wage. We don't take care of our sick and our old. Why not subsidize medical training for doctors, nurses, and technicians and socialize medical care for all Americans? Imagine all of the care that could be given and all of the jobs!
The Bush fascists are working toward a corporate ruling class where everyone else is poor, worried, hungry, and dependent on participating in perpetual wars on foreign soil. What will happen when the only jobs left are in the military?
The Writer's strike is the prescription for an illness that effects all of us. We need to keep dosing the parasites with antibiotics until they die off.
Well said, Sister. Now, let's review.
