For the sake of story telling, truthful story telling, one often gets thrown to the Apes, Better understood by reading the postings, “What sort of a King do I seem to you to be O strangers”,(click 20 on calendar) and It is time to put the horse before the cart for to long the cart has pulled the horse.” (click 21)
For this posting, this writer needed an antagonist in order to challenge the protagonist.
The antagonist in this story is, Alice Weick, the nurse from Dubuque, Iowa, employed by Finely Hospital. And fired from her job, because she exercised two First Amendment guarantees under our Constitution; namely freedom to speak and assemble.
Nurse Weick was more than a skilled nurse providing excellent patient care. She was also the V.P. of the Service Employees International Union, local 199, hereafter, SEIU. In said capacity her union represented 300 nurses. They were seeking a modest pay increase. In addition they wanted clarification of the language in the contract to qualify “just cause” discipline. A union attack on the “Right to Work” clause. That many employees are forced to sign. It is a condition of their employment where “Right to Work” laws exist. Meaning employees can be fired at anytime for just or unjust cause. And at anytime without notice. Even after an exceptional work performance evaluation. (Now you know why its time to put the cart behind the horse).
Just as a story has an antagonist it also has a protagonist. This story has several protagonist. They are your employer or Corporate America, Federal and State governments. And Capitalism, because it is the Sun which provides energy, and life to its subsidiary planets as they circle the work place. With that energy they smash and crush all attempts for employee economic equality.
Each must be considered the enemy of employees everywhere. Because their goal is to minimize your standard of living. Every aspect of your standard of living from wages paid, hours worked, overtime pay, environmental and work place safety, health care, vacation and retirement. And perhaps the most important, the opportunity to enter into a written contract. Obligating the employer to address and satisfy employee interest in their standard of living agenda. (Now you know why some like the cart before the horse).
Many people think that it is settled law that nothing supersedes the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In that, this posting is primarily about the First Amendment guarantee of “speech” and assembly.” One might ask, how could Nurse Weick lose her job? Easily, because it is only doctrine written on paper. Today, a doctrine not upheld by the courts. Why? Because it runs contrary to the tenets of Capitalism. Capitalism is about Production, Commerce, and Profits, hereafter, PCP. Anything that interferes with the nations PCP’s is absolutely secondary. Even if it is etched in the United States Constitution. And it is precisely what caused this writer to announce to his professor (posting “It is time to put the horse before the cart for to long the cart has pulled the horse) that the United States Constitution is not worth the paper it is printed upon. A position this writer holds today simply because of the firing of Nurse Weick and many such other incidents.
The founding father’s of the nations sinister economic doctrine considered Capitalism to have its origins from none other than GOD. This GOD instructed humans to be “fruitful” “multiply” “subdue” and have “dominion,” Genesis 1:28. With that in mind, rest assured that there is nothing that Capitalist, and its subsidiary henchman fear more than the power of employee speech and assembly. Equally assured, these powers will do anything not to allow the PCP’s to be disturbed. So if God, established an economic structure to subdue your quest for economic equality. Then this GOD should be considered the enemy of all forced to be underlings to these powers. So why do so many people pledge their allegiance to such a GOD who has sentenced them to economic inequality?
Of course, God has not establishes an economic order to subdue our quest economic equality. Nor is God the enemy of the people. And, we should pledge our allegiance to God.
Christ constantly preached economic and social justice. For it is written, “Therefore, all things whatever you would that man should do to you, do you even so to them; for this is the law….,” Matthew 7:12. As noted, workers pictured as the cart, have been forced to pull the bigger, heavier and more powerful horse. Pictured as corporate conglomerates and government oppressors. Who give those conglomerates the authority to deny the people fair an economic justice.
In reality the workers represent the more powerful horse. Because there are more of us! It is just that we are splintered in pieces and left weak. Trampled upon by the united oppressors of social and economic justice. Who appear to be the powerful horse.
It is long been time for the workers to do unto the oppressors what they have done to us. Force them the “horse” to pull the “cart” For it is the law of God, Matthew 7:12! “I am come to send fire on the earth; what will I do, if it is already kindled”? Suppose you that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you NO! but rather division,” Luke 12:49 and 51.
What does all this mean. Simply you can not expect the “horse” who has enjoyed luxury and ease to share those benefits without a horrendous struggle.
Generally, I write a series of postings covering a theme. This series started on December 18 and continued each day through December 22, 2007. I did this because many are caught up with the next presidential campaigns seeking to represent their party in the 2008 election. With the focus of the postings suggesting that nothing will change. No matter which party occupies the White House, or as I like to think of it as the peoples house. This will be the case until the people act courageously with boldness. Or the masters will stay the same, and the cart will continue to pull the horse.
All these sinister forces work against the interest of working people through out Tampa Bay and the nation. They really need to be understood and replaced. If only this writer, had the money to give his full attention to the writing of some books. Because so much is left unsaid, with these postings, that needs to be put into print.
In the meantime this writer is available to lecture on such topics. As might be expected this writer clergyman, is always looking for a few revolutionaries to make the horse pull the cart. There are tactics to be learned by the few or the many. Kindling the fire of Luke 12:49 is truly an art.
And of course available write for your publication.
