In a Workers’ Self-Directed Enterprise, no separate group of persons—no individual who does not participate in the work of the enterprise—can be a member of the board of directors. Instead, all the workers who produce the surplus generated inside the enterprise function collectively to appropriate and distribute it. They alone comprise the board of directors. The workers collectively determine what the enterprise produces, the appropriate technology, the location of production, and related matters. They do this in conjunction with the surrounding communities at the local, regional, and national levels.
that's a good sign

when unemployment went from 4.7% to 10% and the destruction of $20 Trillion worth of financial assest owned by U.S. household- those where the good ole day, a useless war which none of the posters on this board fought in, Medicare Part D expansion that was never paid for, the theft of the middle class to give to the wealthy, yes! those were the days
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old Texas rancher whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her potential bid to be President. The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle..." Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle." The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain: "You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, she doesn't know what to do while she's up there, and you just gotta wonder what kind of #$%$ put her up there to begin with!"
I'm shocked, someone who actually knows whats going on, we are in the expansion phase of the economy and with low oil prices, the 10 year at 1.9%, the best jobs number in a decade commercial construction numbers looking very good etc. I don't care who is president the U.S. is doing better than in the 8 years of Bush, full time work numbers could be better, but have a republican explain to me why that is the case, the trickle down theory didn't work with Reagan or Bush in fact David Stockman who was Reagans OMB figured it out.
what was happening in the Taft-Bakersfield area by a company named CBI, Chicago Bridge and Iron and the building of storage tanks throughout that region nearly a year ago, now the refiners are using extra land that they have and building storage

Here is an indicator that I follow on trucking, from the ATA: ATA Truck Tonnage Index Unchanged in December, Up 3.5% for 2014
American Trucking Associations’ advanced seasonally adjusted For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index was unchanged in December, following a jump of 3.5% during the previous month. In December, the index equaled 136.8 (2000=100), which tied November as the all-time high.
Compared with December 2013, the SA index increased 5.2%, which was the largest year-over-year gain in 2014. For the entire year, tonnage was up 3.5%. ...
“Economic data was mixed in December, with retail sales down 0.9% and factory output up 0.3%, so tonnage was in-between those two readings, which are two large drivers of truck freight,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “Overall, 2014 was a good year for truck tonnage with significant gains throughout the year after falling 4.5% in January alone.”
Costello said that in December, tonnage was 10.2% above January.
“Freight volumes look good going into 2015,” Costello said. “Expect an acceleration in consumer spending and factory output to offset the weakness in hydraulic fracking this year.”
Trucking serves as a barometer of the U.S. economy, representing 69.1% of tonnage carried by all modes of domestic freight transportation, including manufactured and retail goods. Trucks hauled 9.7 billion tons of freight in 2013. Motor carriers collected $681.7 billion, or 81.2% of total revenue earned by all transport modG
