The International Assault on Labor

The ferocity of the assault against labor by the U.S. business class is illustrated by Washington's failure, for 60 years, to ratify the core principle of international labor law, which guarantees freedom of association. Legal analyst Steve Charnovitz calls it "the untouchable treaty in American politics" and observes that there has never even been any debate about the matter.

Another Day at the Office: BAPTISED!

My First Assault

While I have been called names, gestured at, and had false complaints called in, I have managed to date to avoid being actually assaulted. Today that record was broken, just a few weeks shy of my 3rd year anniversary.

On my last inbound trip this morning, a man boarded, put 20 cents in the fare box and said "I'm a little short". Per our policy and training, I stated the correct fare to the passenger but did not deny him boarding. He got angry when I wouldn't outright give him permission to not pay the correct fare, demanding his 20 cents back (it was in the fare box) and grabbing at my transfers.

At this point I did invite him off the bus. He bent down, shouted that I was "ignorant" a couple of times. I told him that I didn't say he couldn't board. He stepped back, displayed his middle finger, told me I was ignorant again and from the bottom step leaned back and lunged his head forward, spraying spit on me from chin to shin. As I grimaced and hit the EA (the extent of my reaction), he turned and left the bus.

I apologized to the passengers, telling them that I had been assaulted and needed to make a police report. Transit Police showed up within about 5 minutes, and field supervisors a few minutes later. By this time, Mr. Spitter was long gone. I helped my passengers transfer to one of my following buses, made my report to police and supervisors, and moved on.

My one over-riding thought during all of this (seriously) was: "I wish Adron Hall was here. I am so totally on-time at this stop!"

INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!

The presumption of innocence, sometimes referred by the Latin Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the principle that one is considered innocent until proven guilty) is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, recognised in many nations. The burden of proof is thus on the prosecution, which has to collect and present enough compelling evidence to convince the trier of fact, who is restrained and ordered by law to consider only actual evidence and testimony that is legally admissible, and in most cases lawfully obtained, that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In case of remaining doubts, the accused is to be acquitted. This presumption is seen to stem from the Latin legal principle that ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the burden of proof rests on who asserts, not on who denies).

HYSTERIA+PARNOIA

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland-area transit agency spokeswoman says additional security personnel have been added to the TriMet system following the death of Osama bin Laden.
Spokeswoman Mary Fetsch tells KGW-TV "we're all on heightened alert." She says additional uniformed employees have been looking for any suspicious behavior or items.
Another TriMet spokeswoman, Bekki Witt, was not immediately able to say late Tuesday night how many additional security personnel were involved or how long the increased presence might last. Witt says the increased security involves both buses and light-rail trains.

MEANWHILE BACK AT THE RANCH OF REALITY:
On average in 2009, 93 people were killed on the roadways of the U.S. each day.

THE CHANCES OF GETTING KILLED IN A TERRORIST ATTACK ARE ABOUT THE SAME AS WINNING THE LOTTERY-THE CHANCES OF GETTING KILLED ON THE ROADWAYS IS FAIRLY HIGH!

IMAGINE IF THERE WERE 93 PEOPLE GETTING KILLED EVERY DAY BY TERRORISTS!
AMERICA WOULD HAVE TAKEN OVER THE WHOLE WORLD BY NOW!

STUPID AMERICANS!
