Two essays on the ISO

Why I Hate the ISO - one of the better written pieces I've seen from a sectarian, but no less detached from reality for it. (I show up in comments, but the discussion ends up mostly insults.)
Why I Am Joining The ISO - an eloquent statement from Paul LeBlanc.

I'll take this as a compliment, no matter how backhanded. FWIW, I work two shitty minimum wage jobs and read a myriad of news sources every day... so I fail to see how I'm "detached from reality." BTW, you may want to reflect on how such statements are typically used by the right and whether or not you want to parrot them.

Just sayin'. Thanks for the traffic.

"Secteriana" is a pretty boss word. Thought I'd send you this WSWS article, 100% snark free.

The "No" Vote at Ford

A backhanded compliment is exactly how that was intended. I don't think I have any traffic to send, but you're welcome to whatever there is.

I got a few hits from you. I take whatever I can get.

Ford Workers Lead the Way Forward

I found myself curious what the ISO had to say about the recent "no" vote at Ford- the first rejection of a national contract since 1982. I wasn't terrible surprised that what they had to say was... absofuckinglutely nothing. If anyone requires further proof that the ISO is not oriented toward the working class, they aren't being honest with themselves.
