So what have the unions been up to? That is, besides telling Obama that he should not count on their support in 2012? Man, that guy can annoy anybody.
Dread, awful, all-knowing-but-I-tell-him-stuff-anyway Czar,
Saw this on NRO’s Corner from Kevin Williamson:
One of the most disappointing experiences of my life was being picketed by the Teamsters, at a newspaper I edited in Philadelphia. The newspaper neither owned trucks nor employed drivers, but the Teamsters thought they were owed a contract, anyway, and picketed the newspaper and our advertisers. But the thing was, these clueless goons didn’t even have the courtesy to send actual Teamsters to picket us: They just paid a bunch of scabs from a day-labor center to picket us. Even Teamsters won’t hire Teamsters.
Classic – unions hiring cheap non-union goons to do their gooning. How effing lazy is that? Can’t even get their fat Teamster asses on the picket line.
Speaking of idiot unions, the UAW is considering a strike vote against Ford. Sure, strike against the only one of the Big Three that can actually raise money the old-fashioned way – in the marketplace.
Unfortunately, MC, the use of non-union rented protestors has been going for years. You may be surprised to learn this, but manypossibly mostof the protestors you see picketing at various places are temp jobs performed by non-union folks. This is why (a) it is ever harder to take unions seriously anymore, and (b) overall picketing has been a lot less rowdy and violent. They should follow the SEIUs lead and use union members in all their protests; thats the best way to guarantee some busted heads.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
