About me

Introduction I am a former autoworker who lived through the deindustrialization of the American mid-west and began a second career in media. My daughter recently moved to South Carolina to teach writing and literacy to children there. After I heard her reports on the social conditions in a state long dominated by right wing politicians, I was inspired to develop this blog and others that show the failure of conservative policies in red states like South Carolina, Texas and Kentucky. I was pleased to extensively tour South Carolina and to find that despite the poverty and problems, the working people there are warm and welcoming. I dedicate this effort to them and to all the un and underemployed, to those who've lost jobs, wages and benefits to Republican austerity and to small business people and farmers, who struggle in an ever shrinking North American market.
