"Which Side Are You On?" is a song written in 1931 by Florence Reece, the wife of Sam Reece, a union organizer for the United Mine Workers in Harlan County, Kentucky. In 1931, the miners and the mine owners of that region were locked in a bitter and violent struggle (called the Harlan County War). In an attempt to intimidate the Reece family, Sheriff J. H. Blair and his men (hired by the mining company) illegally entered their family home in search of Sam Reece. Sam had been warned in advance and escaped, but Florence and their children were terrorized in his place. That night, after the men had gone, Florence wrote the lyrics to "Which Side Are You On?" on a calendar that hung in the kitchen of her home. She took the melody from a traditional Baptist hymn, "Lay the Lily Low", or the traditional ballad "Jack Munro".- Wikipedia
Reece supported a second wave of miner strikes circa 1973, as recounted in the documentary Harlan County USA. She and others performed "Which Side Are You On?" a number of times throughout. Reece recorded the song later in life, and it can be heard on the album Coal Mining Women.
The song is referred to by Bob Dylan in the song "Desolation Row". It was also the inspiration for the title of Alessandro Portelli's 2011 book on Harlan County's coal mining community.
There are many versions of the song, but the most powerful version is this one:
Which side are you on? The oligarchy, or the people? Hillary or Bernie?
because it takes too long to write the accurate description: Andrea Mitchell, wife of disgraced Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, the man who was at the center of the massive deregulation and bailouts of Wall Street.
So everything she reports on that deals with Wall Street power, corruption, money in politics, she should clearly state that she is representing her husband's interests, which she has shown over and over again that she does, in fact, serve as an agent of the .01%

On Sunday, CNNs Jake Tapper questioned Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on her calls for fresh sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile tests. Tapper read out tweets by American journalist and former Iran prisoner Shane Bauer criticizing Clintons comments. "When I was in prison in Iran, whenever I heard Hillarys voice, my heart would sink," Bauer wrote. "All she ever does with Iran is inflame tensions." In response, Clinton said while she "appreciate[s] what he went through we have a very clear path we are pursuing with Iran," that includes new sanctions, if necessary. Bauer joins us to respond.
Bernie just pwned you just like he pwned your husband.
I would like to see Barbara Lee on the ticket.
How do you feel about that?
Personally, I have the giggles.
Illinois state law currently addresses only the recall of a governor, a provision voters approved in 2010 after former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested and impeached. Now, state Rep. La Shawn Ford, a Chicago Democrat, wants voters to also have the power to remove the mayor of the country's third-largest city.
In light of the unrest in the city, Ford said, "It's clearly the right thing to have on the books."
But what about mayors in other Illinois cities? What about state lawmakers? How does Illinois compare to other states when it comes to recalls? Here's a closer look at those questions and the particulars of Ford's measure.
All the fucking retards in America approve!!
A. Hillary Clinton
B. Bernie Sanders
