A Match Made on Bald Hill Road

Justin Katz

The unions have made an honest blog of RI Future:

Working Rhode Island, a coalition of most of Rhode Island's labor unions, and RIFuture.Org, the State's premier political blog, announced a first of its kind partnership designed to increase the visibility of the labor movement in the online world. Through the partnership Working Rhode Island will use the RIFuture.Org blog to give an up close, first person account of the activities of organized labor throughout Rhode Island including the rallies, organizing efforts, contract campaigns, and legislative testimony affecting working people that often get overlooked by the mainstream media.

Yes. If one thing has been lacking at RI Future (especially since its ownership change), it's been the union point of view. If only the Poverty Institute could get in on the arrangement and the Projo's Political Scene could use RI Future as a source.

Comments, although monitored, are not necessarily representative of the views Anchor Rising's contributors or approved by them. We reserve the right to delete or modify comments for any reason.

At least this makes their Candidate for Governor poll that much more credible.

Just asking:

Do ...

Dues monies forcibly extracted from teachers paychecks go to the NEARI, and then

Some of which goes to "WorkingRI" and then

Some of which compensates Bob Walsh and then

Some of which also goes to RI Future and then

Some of which compensates Pat Crowley?

If so, does this help mask their total compensation from the rank and file?

Just asking ...

RI Future? More like RI Fuc&ed.
It never ceases to amaze me how the points of view aired on this wacked out blog, are so bizarre, so insane, that the only way one could come up with the viewpoints is first, by saying to oneself, "what is the dumbest, stupidest, most ludicrous thought I can come up with", and then, expressing it as something they truly believe.
RI Fuc&ed is a comedy site.

"RI Fuc&ed is a comedy site."

But the sad reality is the apocolyptic policies propounded by the maggots and leeches on that blog do indeed seem to foretell the true "RI Future".

I like meeting them on their own ground and making them justify their point of view.Some will engage honestly,but some others just snipe from the sidelines or give wiseass replies.Either way it keeps them from only preaching to the choir.
