Charter Busing Workers to Fuel Political Discourse

Soon thousands of folks will be hoping on buses heading to New York for the "Biggest Most Important Climate Change Protest in History".   Every year or 2 someone makes this claim in the lead up to a protest and it rarely lives up to the hype.  I wish they were always accurate and every protest could make this claim with an avalanche of ever increasing dissent that actually changes things, but alas, it just ain't so.  Unfortunatly even if it is "the largest" what will be accomplished?  Will the hard workin' nose to the grind stone regular folks who can't afford to pay attention to such things ever know what happened?  How can you sway popular opinion when the masses don't know anything occured?  It's partially the fault of mainstream media, partially the falt of alternative media and partialy the fault of a system that indoctrinates wage slaves from very early in life to believe the best they can do to make change in the world is to pick a team, red or blue; stick by their team their whole lives regardless of the teams post game antics.  Regardless of whether the team gives a shit about the fans it blinds with false patriotism.
