Rant: Doesn't support jobs group backing coal terminal

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 20, 2013 

Regarding the Gateway Pacific Coal export terminal: I knew from the very first minute that I learned about the Alliance for Northwest Jobs and Exports that I believe it is a capitalist-front group primarily to strengthen and widen the division between real progressives in the movements for labor, environmental and social justice. I never bought it for even one second!
