Today in Labor History

July 17, 1944
Two ammunition ships explode at Port Chicago, Calif., killing 322, including 202 African-Americans assigned by the Navy to handle explosives. It was the worst home-front disaster of World War II.

Has the backlash against the state's oppressive Voter ID law that will likely prevent 758,939 registered voters from partaking in the November election not sufficiently stirred their interest in change? Apparently not, because Governor Corbett has chosen to have a Mitt Romney fundraiser create TV ads about the voter ID law, according to the Philadelphia City Paper…Corbett has used government funds allotted to prevent voter suppression to help cover up the voter suppression he is implementing. Positively Orwellian! Read more at wepartypatriots.com (click image to enlarge)
