How to speak Republican | Salon News

How to speak Republican | Salon News: "Frank Luntz is a Republican word doctor who coaches conservatives to talk to Americans about 'personalizing' Social Security instead of 'privatizing' it. ...In a phone interview with Salon, Luntz discussed his dissatisfaction with the way the White House talks about the war in Iraq, his impressions of Barack Obama, and his beef with the progressive netroots."

SSRN-Transnational Labor Citizenship by Jennifer Gordon

SSRN-Transnational Labor Citizenship by Jennifer Gordon

Over at Salon's "How the World Works", Andrew Leonard has a review of Jennifer Gordon's paper Transnational Labor Citizenship, which advocates for unions to drop their protectionist and anti-immigrant activities, instead focusing on organizing immigrant workers before they enter the U.S..

It's a good idea for a country where "pro-labor" has come to be more closely related with nationalism than internationalism.
