Mothers

It will take 2 fronts to reverse what Free Trade Agreements and the tidal wave of non-immigrant guest workers are doing.

The first front is our mothers of America.

They did this during:

  • Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving

And now they are doing it in Washington, DC once again where it needs to be done.

American Workers Coalition – AWC – the American citizen, non-partisan, un-funded group that I co-founded with two other mothers, Barbara Birch and Marie Larson, is leading the charge in bringing the facts to our elected officials and their aides.

But they can’t do it by themselves.

They need people out here in our cities and towns, in our counties and all over our State.

People putting the pressure on their political representatives in Washington, DC, and on our political representatives here in Texas.

That is the only way that the change will happen.

I like this quote, it is reqularly repeated and would like to use it but I can’t find a good reference to support it. Is it a real quote, a mis-quote or what? can anyone help? PeterEastern 12:38, 25 June 2011 (UTC)


Harry Belafonte recalled in an interview with Tavis Smiley recently a story he was told by Eleanor Roosevelt. She related a public event when her husband, FDR, introduced Randolph and asked him, Belafonte recalled, “what he thought of the nation, what he thought of the plight of the Negro people and what did he think … where the nation was headed.” Continuing the story, Belafonte recounted what FDR replied upon hearing Randolph’s remarks: “You know, Mr. Randolph, I’ve heard everything you’ve said tonight, and I couldn’t agree with you more. I agree with everything that you’ve said, including my capacity to be able to right many of these wrongs and to use my power and the bully pulpit. … But I would ask one thing of you, Mr. Randolph, and that is go out and make me do it.

We can do this.

Watch this video and read the rest to see what has worked in the past, and it will work again in our future, and now.

Did you ever study the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire when you were in school?

Did you realize that the reason that we have sprinkler systems in our buildings now came about as a result of the Mothers of that era standing up and demanding it so that more of their daughters were not lost to senseless greed.

25 March 1911

Do you remember who stood up and demanded that Drunk Drivers were taken off of the highways of our country?

Once again, it was the mothers of our youth.

Three mothers are standing together once again.

American Workers Coalition – AWC – the American citizen, non-partisan, un-funded group that I co-founded with two other mothers, Barbara Birch and Marie Larson, is leading the charge in bringing the facts to our elected officials and their aides.

You do NOT have to be the mother of a tech worker to be concerned – eventually all jobs of all occupational groups will be sent to other countries where the wages are cheaper, or cheaper non-immigrant guest workers will be imported to lower the wages here at home by taking the jobs away from your children IF we keep on this path of Free Trade Agreements and non-immigrant guest worker visas.

Our mothers are now realizing that these companies are destroying their children’s future here in America by sending their jobs to other countries.

Our mothers are now realizing that these companies are destroying their children’s future here in America by importing non-immigrant guest workers to take these jobs away from the mothers of America’s children.

Here in Texas, the mothers of our Texas children are realizing that these companies are destroying their children’s future by sending their jobs to other countries.

Here in Texas, these same mothers of our Texas children are realizing that these companies are destroying their children’s future by importing non-immigrant guest workers to take their child’s jobs away from them.

And they are finding their voice.
