Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and ...
Amazon.com: Take This Job and Ship It: How Corporate Greed and Brain-Dead Politics Are Selling Out America: Books: Byron Dorgan by Byron Dorgan
MORE:>>




A Democratic Senator from North Dakota who is standing up for the American worker against the excesses of so-called "free trade" and "globalization" for which K Street corporate lobbyists write all the legislation?

Yes, as surprising as it seems.

Byron Dorgan has penned a book that rails against the tidal wave of corporate greed and excess that has submerged Congress in his book, "Take This Job & Ship It."

Dorgan is so outraged at the betrayal of the American worker by corporations and Congress that he even meets with the approval of pro-worker and "Hostile Takeover: How Big Money and Corruption Conquered Our Government--and How We Take It Back" author, David Sirota.

Dorgan believes that "Trade can't be 'free' when our small businesses and working people are expected to compete with exploited workers and slave labor in third-world nations that care little about the conditions in their factories and not at all about the pollution they generate."

A BuzzFlash reader recently sent us a lacerating critique of a patronizing and generally dismissive Washington Post review of Dorgan's book. What did the reviewer for the Post object to? Well, basically that standing up for workers and against the inequities and sellouts of a "free trade" system rigged against American working people, the environment, and dependent on the exploitation of workers around the world...well, the Post thought to be against such things is to be sort of a radical.

Standing up for the American worker and against corporations running our trade and economic policies is not a radical position at all. It is a position that returns the Democratic Party to its labor roots. It was the abandonment of such ideas and principles that allowed the working class, the underemployed and some of the unemployed, to be lured to the Republican Party by the Siren Song of wedge issues.

If we want to fix "What's the Matter with Kansas," we need to speak out on behalf of a fair and just economy, as Dorgan does.

The Bush plutocracy is not radical to the mainstream press, but standing up for wage earners is! That's because the corporate press is, well, corporate -- and Dorgan is arguing that America's legislative system is now, well, run by corporations, in large part.

So, the companies that own the mainstream media are part of the problem because they benefit from the inequities visited upon workers by unrestricted "globalization" of the NAFTA variety.

If you need an antidote to the Thomas Friedmans of the world who believe that the world is flat, Dorgan's penned the book for you.

As the publisher notes: "Dorgan pulls no punches and, most important, he offers a refreshing, bold strategy for putting our country back on track. America can once again be a booming exporter as well as a good trading partner with the whole world, but to mindlessly cheer on the loss of more than 3 million jobs (and that's only the beginning) is just plain folly. In the long run, the United States cannot help the rest of the world by impoverishing its own people and bankrupting its own economy. With a little courage and some original thinking, the negative trade balance can be slowed, even stopped and reversed."

Sounds good to us.

Why does telling the plain truth seem so bold and audacious?

Maybe because the Democratic leadership has spent too much time playing footsy with the K Street lobbyists.

Dorgan is just returning the Democratic Party to its roots and restoring its compact with the American worker.

He should be the Democratic Party's lead voice on domestic economic policy; John Murtha should be its lead voice on foreign military policy.

That's a dream policy leadership team for the Dems.
