Warehouse workers in Illinois featured during The Poverty Tour filed a lawsuit against their former employer for wage theft.


Smiley:I hope one of these big box stores will step up and set a new standard.

West: The Occupy movement must have a strong labor component. It’s a moment of resistance.

We The Occupy Movement/ People must have a strong labour support and hold! If we do not act now at this time it will slip back into a plantation situation. This time it will not just be African American, it will consist of all races! We have already heard Newt Gingrich! The Time Is Now To Move!!!

Research the name Newt,  "A salamander, lizzard that scurries about the earth...slivering as a snake." Gingrich means, "A German descent name meaning battlement, to rule, house etc." You Are Your Name! Study...Research!!!

Right on the money! OR as option traders would say, right in the money! Thanks.

Thank You Penguin Board of Directors! Yes! We The People have to start doing our homework and not expect the answers to be dumped in our laps. Knowledge Is Essential and we must ask ourselves...."What Seek Ye?" I always said, "Life is like a game of chess! We must know what moves to make and know what action (pawn, knight, bishop etc.) to move.  Study the game and you can begin to master and strategize your moves in life in any given situation.... Thank You Again!

Francine & Umoja,

It would be nice for Shakespeare to come back and learn an additional lesson or two (courtesy of Francine), though I respect him and his works. Shakespeare had countless quotable quotes to his credit; one of them read "honey called by any name will be as sweet." Maybe he intended to add somewhere else that Newt and company were an exception to the rule ... :)  

;)...Yes! Can't get the smile off my face! Penguin Board of Directors...you are so right! I believe if some of the people in history would have checked out some of those names we would not be in the rut and repetition of negative history. We are given hints everyday in our life, staring us in the face and quite obvious most time! "If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...it must be a duck!" :) Lol!

Francine,

I agree on the duck thing. In any case, how come Shakespeare did not give Brutus a name less prophetic than the brute or brutal (Brut-Al) man the guy turned out to be! Shakespeare must have known that Honey as a name would not do for a man reeking with so much betrayal and treachery.

But, how about Bill Gates? You would have thought he would end up a 'gate man' in my 'hood. He turned around and decided to be the Number One gatekeeper to the world's treasury. He took out all the Bills (okay, almost all)! Maybe after all,  names are a product of two Ds; the duck thing and then doggedness.

Most Karens and Kareninas I know are very caring. At face value, Obama could have been an onomatopoeia for 'A Bad Man;' contrarily, most rational folks believe the president is anything but a bad man. I agree.

So, somewhere in-between "honey called by any name will be as sweet" and the skeptical opposite may lie some semblance of truth. We shall keep looking. We may yet find. Thanks Francine.  

"Smiling!"....:) "Honey"...yes!...Sometimes we have to go into the symbolism of a name or word or the etymology of a word (name) as you have done. Studying both to gain a full meaning."Honey" symbolically in Orphic tradition comes to "wisdom." Putting everything together, the symbolism, etytmology and intuitively it means; "sacrifice, suffering in order to reach higher knowledge. Totaling an spiritual exercise of self improvement." I call people "honey" all the time, because what I'm about to say or have said is truth. Although the person I passed it onto might feel offended. That's when it is used as a, sweetener. I address myself "honey" all the time! Lol!!!! Hah..Hah! Smile!... Selah!

As they say, "Truth is sweet to the taste, but bitter to digest." 

Thank You So Much...Penguin Board Of Directors! I am Honored and Humbled to have this Plato/Socrates moment with you! I am a lifetime student and protege of...Truth!
