Union Organizer Marco Rubio? Strange Fruit; Music in Schools Month
We Educate Miami
How ‘Strange Fruit’ Killed Billie Holiday. Holiday, who throughout her career called public attention to the devastating impact of white supremacy, drew the notice of the Commissioner for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. He ordered her to stop singing the song... (as reported in The Progressive https://progressive.org/dispatches/strange-fruit-caused-the-murder-of-billie-holiday-180220/) The song’s lyrics were shocking to members of Holiday’s mostly white audiences: Southern trees bear strange fruitBlood on the leaves and blood at the rootBlack bodies swinging in the southern breezeStrange fruit hanging from the poplar treesThe song's writer, Abel Meeropol, actually taught at a high school in the Bronx, New York, and churned out reams of topical songs, poems and plays under the alias Lewis Allan. He published a poem under the title Bitter Fruit in the union-run New York Teacher magazine in 1937. The later name change was inspired. "Bitter" is too baldly judgmental. "Strange", however, evokes a haunting sense of something out of joint, according to a Guardian profile (https://www.theguardian.com/music/2011/feb/16/protest-songs-billie-holiday-strange-fruit) Pop Quiz: What national politician—well known in this area—endorsed the union drive at Amazon? This week we were happily surprised when the workers received another solidarity message from a politician well known to our listeners. Can you guess who it was? Let’s read what was written and see how long we can keep mystery alive before you guess who it is. In the USA Today on Saturday, this well-known elected wrote: What our nation desperately needs is not more oligopolies like Amazon or hostile relationships; what we need is a more productive relationship between labor and management.Sounds like Bernie Sanders, right? Nope. Keep guessing. I will provide another hint. The person further wrote: One of my earliest political memories was marching the picket line with my dad in a Culinary Workers Union strike when he worked as a hotel bartender, and the lesson I took from it — all workers deserve respect — has stuck with me all throughout my career. Could it be progressive rookie Congresswoman “Squad” member AOC?You are getting colder. Give up? None other than our Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. If you did not get that pop quiz correct, it is certainly understandable: Tell us more about Senator Marco Rubio’s labor record: The Intelligencer (https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2021/03/marco-rubio-amazon-union-alabama-oped-woke-capital.html) reports: Over the course of his career, the Florida lawmaker has backed the AFL-CIO’s position in relevant Senate votes 8 percent of the time. For the average Senate Republican, that figure is 17 percent. Rubio is a co-sponsor of national “right-to-work” legislation (a policy that undermines organized labor by allowing workers who join a unionized workplace to enjoy the benefits of a collective-bargaining agreement without paying dues to the union that negotiated it, which has the effect of encouraging other workers to skirt their dues, which can then drain a union of the funds it needs to survive). Rubio opposes the $15 minimum wage, and supported all manner of anti-labor Cabinet nominees during the Trump administration. Just last night, he criticized Joe Biden for including a “bailout” of the pensions of millions of Teamsters, carpenters, builders, and other unionized trades in the newly signe

Allen Ellison: Meet Marco Rubio's Democratic Senate Challenger
Allen Ellison is a Democrat who's challenging Marco Rubio for his U.S. Senate seat in 2022. He previously ran for Congress against Rep. Greg Steube in 2018 and 2020. Here's why Allen is running, in his own words: "We have watched career politicians stand by and do absolutely nothing for our people. We have watched them fill this nation with hate through their divisive rhetoric, and we have watched them line their pockets at the expense of the American people, while our fellow citizens struggle to make ends meet. I say enough is enough. We are in desperate need for visionary leaders with fresh ideas who care about the issues that matter to all of us. It is an astounding and horrible fact that between 18 to 22 military veterans commit suicide every day. The causes for this tragedy are typically depression fueled by PTSD, survivor’s guilt, or low self-esteem due to unpreparedness for civilian life. We must support our veterans and end this crisis. Of the 61 million Americans living in the United States with a disability, there are 2.6 million living right here in Florida. Some leaders are trying to reduce your monthly benefits, while many Americans that have been deemed disabled by a physician are being denied year after year. This is not right, and we need positive change on this issue. My vision for our future is centered around improving the quality of life for all citizens. This means protecting social security, healthcare, the rights of women, veterans care, increasing disability benefits, making improvements to infrastructure and our educational system. It means creating good paying jobs, sustainable agricultural development and green solutions for a stronger, cleaner and safer environment for everyone to enjoy. It means bringing families back together and healing the social divide while conquering this pandemic." __ 🇺🇸 Allen's Website: ellisonforcongress.com 🇺🇸 Allen's Twitter: @AllenLEllison __ Check out our Patreon for more! ☀️ https://www.patreon.com/JENerationalChange __ ☀️ WEBSITE: https://jenerationalchange.com/ ☀️ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/JENFL23 ☀️ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/jenerationalchange ☀️ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/jenfl23/ ☀️ PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/JENerationalChange

Senator Marco Rubio on Proverbs 3:5-6 -- “Trust: Lessons from the Proverbs" - S1E65
The Rabbi's Husband
Mark’s friend, Senator Marco Rubio, joins him on the podcast today. The son of Cuban immigrants, Marco grew up in Miami and Las Vegas, entered public service as a City Commissioner, and was elected to the United States Senate in 2010. In his current role, he has become a leader on a variety of issues from United States support of Israel to immigration to Latin America, earning himself the title of a ‘virtual Secretary of State for Latin America’ from The New York Times. Having known him for ten years now, Mark considers him to be exceedingly well informed on any topic, and recommends that anyone who has anything cynical to say about politicians really should meet Marco. The passage he has chosen today is Proverbs 3:5-6.Marco begins their discussion by sharing his summary of the passage, his reasons for selecting it, and examining some of the key words from it as well as their translation. He and Mark then explore the themes within the passage such as trusting and leaning on the Lord and rationalization and accountability, and how these themes are experienced in society today. They also look at the difference between human and Godly understanding, the differing attitudes towards those with greater responsibility in our world, and the foundation the Bible provides for current laws and policies. Marco concludes the discussion by offering his practical advice derived from the passage, the ways in which he and his colleagues enhance their understanding of the Bible, and the lessons he has learned about mankind. As Mark states, in today’s episode, Marco shares ‘so many enduring observations…from four lines of a magnificent proverb’, and together they surface its many lessons and practical applications.Episode Highlights: Marco’s summary of the passage and his reasons for selecting it Some of the key words of the passage and their translation Trusting and leaning on the Lord Rationalizations and accountability Marco’s perspective on accountability in the Senate The difference between human and Godly understanding The differing attitudes people have towards those with greater responsibility Marco’s practical advice derived from this passage The foundation the Bible provides for our current laws and policies How Marco and his colleagues enhance their understanding of the Bible The lessons about mankind that Marco has learned Quotes:“Just be able to speak knowledgeably about any topic for four minutes and you’ll fool them all.”“I think it’s the first lesson of Judaism, and obviously it becomes the first lesson of Christianity.”“If you go through the Ten Commandments as they were handed down, why would you believe any of them if you don’t trust in the source of those commandments?”“It’s a guide book from the manufacturer.”“Don’t lean on your own understanding, because you’re going to fool yourself if you give yourself the chance. Instead, trust in the Lord with all your heart.”“Time and again, no matter how much the Lord has proven Himself, we constantly find reason to doubt that He’ll do it again.”“Very few bad people actually think they’re bad people…they just think of these fantastic justifications to do what they really should know is bad.”“If you have to sneak it in, then that means there’s something wrong with it.”“You can’t apply something you don’t understand.”“We live in the world of the Bible.”“What we all have in common is that we have something special about us…and…everyone wants to matter.”“Identify the gift that God has given you, and apply it to something meaningful.”Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not rely on your own understanding.
