Let's Get Our History Right

Ad copy running 'round the left side of the nets says:

FDR passed the National Labor Relations Act to protect workers.

Bzzz ... wrong. FDR passed such legislation to protect capitalists from their own excesses. That richer frat-boy didn't care so much about workers (though his wife did) ... but what did he get for trying to save his own class? They called him a traitor and have been trying to undermine his New Deal since.

Nu? What can we learn from this ingratitude in this season of Thanksgiving when we should be gracious? I dunno ... but I betcha we can learn something!
