BREAKING: Left-Wing Panel Finds All Woes Originate on Right

With the economy continuing to stagger and job creation not moving quickly, "working people are justifiably angry and frustrated" as they approach the Nov. 2 elections, says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

Trumka and Working America Executive Director Karen Nussbaum, New York Times columnist Bob Herbert, Eric Alterman, journalist and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and moderator Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the Nation, led a panel discussion—Which Way for the Working Class? Elections 2010 and Beyond—Friday afternoon in New York City.

Which way for the working class? The direction coming from this group is obvious: left, and then down.

They also discovered that Republicans are uniformly rich and evil, that Tea Partiers molest children before cannibalizing them, and that Barack Obama can cure lupus with his mind. Make sure that you read the entire article at the link. You'll love Trumka's parting shot:

we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.

Yes, kids... these people are, by definition, socialists.

Trumka wants to "re-establish" popular control over private corporations. RE-ESTABLISH, like in the way things use to be? When was that Mr. Trmka? Where is this idiot coming from?

I live in Venezuela and I wish Trumka's so called working class could spend some time down here and see first hand what socialism about and what it does to an economy. Unfortunately they've been conditioned for so long by our ( I hate this word )"progressive" politicians, media and school system, that I fear there is no hope. But giving up hope won't get us where we need to go. We conservatives must find a better way to package and sell our ideas.

I'm a first time visitor to Confederate Yankee but I will definitely be back.
