Continuing on with the loathesome unions and their smarmy factotums in Congress, I give you unfree elections! That’s right, our Congress is giving serious consideration to amending the National Labor Relations Act to require that any vote authorizing a union be public. The Democrats want to remove your right to a secret ballot on union authorization votes. The unions can be trusted not to intimidate voters. Just ask Chief Panderer-in-Waiting Sen. Obama, who has vowed to sign such legislation if it comes to his desk, should the peons recognize in November that his is the Chosen One.
As Dr. Sowell notes in his article linked, when you can’t compete on the merits and are losing the game, change the rules. In this case, buy up members of Congress through liberal gifts of members’ dues to reelection funds.
I await a reporter’s question to Speaker Pelosi as to why she thinks it’s OK to remove a person’s right to the secret ballot. I expect one will not be forthcoming. Perhaps Speaker Pelosi can ask citizens of Cuba and Zimbabwe how the lack of secret ballot is working out for them?
March on, unions and your fellow travelers!
Always right, unless he isn’t, the infallible Ghettoputer F. X. Gormogons claims to be an in-law of the Volgi, although no one really believes this.
’Puter carefully follows economic and financial trends, legal affairs, and serves as the Gormogons’ financial and legal advisor. He successfully defended us against a lawsuit from a liquor distributor worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid deliveries of bootleg shandies.
The Geep has an IQ so high it is untestable and attempts to measure it have resulted in dangerously unstable results as well as injuries to researchers. Coincidentally, he publishes intelligence tests as a side gig.
His sarcasm is so highly developed it borders on the psychic, and he is often able to insult a person even before meeting them. ’Puter enjoys hunting small game with 000 slugs and punt guns, correcting homilies in real time at Mass, and undermining unions. ’Puter likes to wear a hockey mask and carry an axe into public campgrounds, where he bursts into people’s tents and screams. As you might expect, he has been shot several times but remains completely undeterred.
He assures us that his obsessive fawning over news stories involving women teachers sleeping with young students is not Freudian in any way, although he admits something similar once happened to him. Uniquely, ’Puter is unable to speak, read, or write Russian, but he is able to sing it fluently.
Geep joined the order in the mid-1980s. He arrived at the Castle door with dozens of steamer trunks and an inarticulate hissing creature of astonishingly low intelligence he calls “Sleestak.” Ghettoputer appears to make his wishes known to Sleestak, although no one is sure whether this is the result of complex sign language, expert body posture reading, or simply beating Sleestak with a rubber mallet.
‘Puter suggests the Czar suck it.
