Labor Week

License To Kill
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Jun 22, 2014 - 4:58:02 PM

Catholic_Church_1.jpg
UNITED STATES—Religious rights - a thorny issue and one that often conflicts with our notions of justice and fair jurisprudence. When the law and religion lock horns, watch out.



  Great Leap Backward
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Feb 1, 2014 - 7:48:26 AM

Capital_Building_3.jpg
UNITED STATES—When we are evaluating governments, political parties, or organizations, just listening to what they say and how they portray themselves isn’t very useful.



Slave Trade
Point of View : Labor Week

UNITED STATES
Go to almost any business school associated with a state university in the United States, and you will be taught methods of analyzing businesses that allow to you maximize profitability for the enterprise.


  The Long Road To End Discrimination
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Sep 8, 2013 - 6:17:15 AM
Gavel_9.jpg
UNITED STATES—Again, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) crawls through the national legislature.


Re-Writing History
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Aug 23, 2013 - 11:07:40 PM

Capital_Building_3.jpg
UNITED STATES
History has always been an inexact science. There are always historians that are devoted to the truth, but they are very rare.



  Points Of Contact
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Aug 3, 2013 - 1:59:47 PM

Gavel_7.jpg
UNITED STATES—It is a shame, but nobody really debates anymore. It seems that people only like to get together with other people who agree with their decisions and prejudices so that they can slap one another on the back.



Priorities
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on May 5, 2013 - 12:02:02 AM
Gavel.jpg
UNITED STATESWe have got some pretty weird priorities in this country. Sometimes I think that this is because of historical coincidence and sometimes I am not so sure.


  Enterprise Equality
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Apr 7, 2013 - 12:56:20 PM

ENDA_MAP_2.jpg
UNITED STATESThe ENDA is currently being considered by the US Congress, again. Proponents say its only fair and opponents say it is grossly unfair. What does it really mean?



Hobbycare
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Jan 6, 2013 - 11:09:33 PM
HL_Condoms_Thumb.jpg
UNITED STATESAn Oklahoma based chain of stores called Hobby Lobby has publicly defied federal law by refusing to provide insurance that covers contraception.


  Disabled
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Dec 13, 2012 - 4:43:53 PM
disabled-thumb.jpg
UNITED STATESEvery time I think that we have hit bottom morally as a nation, some new horror unfolds and makes me reassess our position in the world.


Exceptional Politics
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Nov 1, 2012 - 12:38:44 PM

barrack-obama-mitt-romneyy-A.jpg
UNITED STATESDoes anyone vote for things anymore, or do most folks vote against things? In an increasingly polarized world, it is perhaps not surprising that many people vote according to what they fear rather than what they want.



  Presto Cogitation
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Oct 12, 2012 - 11:08:05 AM
America-A_1.jpg
UNTIED STATESWhat do you think is real and why do you believe it? Because you were told it by someone you trust?  Because it is consistent with other things you believe?


Aristocratic Prejudice
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Apr 28, 2012 - 6:17:32 PM
WASHINGTON-DC-A_8.jpg
WASHINGTON D.C.
We have now in this country a ruling class composed primarily of millionaires: 87% of top government positions are millionaires - 7 out of 11 Supreme Court judges are millionaires. What does this mean?


  Textbook History
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Feb 27, 2012 - 5:35:31 PM

textbook_1.jpg
WASHINGTON D.C.Remember a couple of years ago, when some people raised a big stink because some textbook publishers planned to cut Jefferson and Labor Unions from American History curriculum and replace them with Phyllis Schlafly and Prosperity Theology? It’s faded from the front pages, but what is happening on this issue?



Choices
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Feb 19, 2012 - 5:12:10 PM
WASHINGTON-DC-A_7.jpg
WASHINGTON D.C.
There is a controversy brewing at the state and federal level about church-owned enterprise employees and health insurance. What is it all about?

  Manufacturing Ignorance
Point of View : Labor Week
By Jessica MacGilvray on May 29, 2011 - 8:54:19 PM

WASHINGTON-DC-A_2_15.jpg
WASHINGTON, D.C.
As our great country becomes more and more polarized and divided, more and more simple truths become unacceptable to more people.



Starvation For Profit
Point of View : Labor Week
By Jessica MacGilvray on May 22, 2011 - 1:44:59 PM
IMGP1047ALFruit_Vegetables_Thumbnail.jpg
WASHINGTON, D.C. —The cost of food has doubled in the past two years. There are many injustices in this world, but few are so plainly wrong as the profiteering of food.

  Legislating Intolerance
Point of View : Labor Week
By Jessica MacGilvray on May 12, 2011 - 7:30:11 AM

IMGP0232AmericanFlagThumbnail_5.jpg
WASHINGTON, D.C.—
What if my sincerely held religious or moral belief made me unable to work with black people or with Hispanic people or women or Muslims?



Values
Point of View : Labor Week
By Jessica MacGilvray on May 7, 2011 - 12:37:48 AM
IMGP0232AmericanFlagThumbnail_2.jpg
WASHINGTON, D.C.—
It is interesting to compare the rhetoric and actions of groups like National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and Focus on the Family (FOF).


  Union Uprising
Point of View : Labor Week
By Jessica MacGilvray on Apr 24, 2011 - 2:06:15 PM
IMGP8703cProtestorsYellingThumbnail.jpg

Organizing Chaos
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on Jan 16, 2011 - 8:46:27 AM

Chaos_symbol-a.jpg
WASHINGTON D.C.It is no
surprise that government in the hands of people who do not believe in government does not work very well. They believe in profit.



  Oily Nightmare
Point of View : Labor Week
By Henry Meyerding on May 9, 2010 - 11:13:08 PM
oil-rig-A.jpg
WASHINGTON D.C.—The prospect of ruining the entire marine habitat of Atlantic Mexico and the Southern US is bad enough, but could there be worse damage?
