The AFL-CIO, the Greater Boston Labor Council, and other labor groups are headed to Dewey Square tomorrow to show their support for the Occupants.
At 10 am, incoming Massachusetts AFL-CIO president -- and Massachusetts State Senator -- Steven A. Tolman will visit Occupy Boston "as part of a national week of action calling for long-awaited and desperately-needed jobs for middle class workers," according to the group.
I've got to admit that I find the whole casino-gambling/slots business to be very messy. It challenges my libertarian instincts. I've managed largely to reconcile my libertarian positions on speech (I'm a near-absolutist) and in the realm of personal conduct (what J. S. Mill dubbed "self-regarding conduct") with my left-leaning positions on government's establishing a bottom floor beneath which no decent society allows any of its citizens to fall.
