Republicans Speak

" Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."

~Abraham Lincoln, the first President of the United States to use the power of the federal government in support of striking workers.

I read Thom Hartmann's book just last month. He is a fantastic writer. Do you ever listen to his show on Air America? He is quite an erudite thinker and speaker.

Dang, but we do not have air america here, at least not on the radio. I know it's streaming on the web, but I haven't taken the time to figure out how to do that yet. One of these days soon...

I do read all his columns over at Molly Ivin's Working For Change blog.
