Victimization Mythology Used to Support Civilian Blitz of Gaza

If CNN and Fox News have convinced you that “up is down,” maybe it is time to accept that you are a danger to yourself and others.

Stupid Netanyahu is now intimating that the people of bombed out Gaza are building gas chambers, gassing vans, huge crematoriums and plan to overwhelm Israel, throwing babies onto bayonets and old ladies into crematoriums, all the while cheering the stench of burning human flesh.

Maybe the had reason.


Michigan Right-To-Work Bill Approved By Republican-Dominated House

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Legislature gave final approval Tuesday to a bitterly contested right-to-work plan limiting the power of unions, a devastating and once unthinkable defeat for organized labor in a state considered a cradle of the movement.

Unswayed by Democrats' pleas and thousands of protesters inside and outside the state Capitol, the House approved two final bills, sending them on to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. One dealt with private sector workers, the other with government employees. Both measures cleared the Senate last week.

It should be called the Right to Work for Less bill.

Define poverty. And what do unions do for the welfare of the overall State? They destroy it and bankrupt it!

Maybe lower wages, slightly, are what's needed!

Man, that's really magnanimous of you volunteering some of your wages to help the cause!

You miss my point. Pensions and all the other crap are killing competition.

I work in mfg and have no union/pension. I have a 401k that I control. It's optional. "Right to choose".

You union as#@&%es can go f*#k yourselves~ You are dead!

Translation: "Unions make those of us too stupid not to be in a union, or to organize our workplace, feel really stupid! And makes us post idiotic, emotional rants that would embarrass a 7 year old!"


Um, no. A 7-yr old would say that where is that in the Constitution? If they were educated anywhere other than Michigan, of course...

In a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, 18 Democrat senators and senators-elect have asked for “a delay in the implementation” of the Obamacare medical device tax. Like most of the significant tax increases in Obamacare, the medical device tax is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2013, conveniently after the 2012 presidential election.

Each of the 18 Democrat signatories voted for or supported Obamacare in the first place. And now they want a sweetheart exemption from one of its most onerous provisions. Even in Washington DC, that shows a lot of gall.

The signatories to the letter are as follows:

Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)

Kay Hagan (D-N.C.)

Al Franken (D-Minn.)

Herb Kohl (D-Wis.)

Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.)

John Kerry (D-Mass.)

Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.)

Robert Casey (D-Pa.)

Ben Nelson (D-Neb.)

Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.)

Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)

Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)

Patty Murray (D-Wash.)

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.)

Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) – (Voted for Obamacare in the House)

That would be the First Amendment...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

Why do we need unions today? I work in electronics manufacturing, competeing with Chinese workers and we have no unions. WTF? And I make enough to live pretty comfortably, for now, in Calif.

State/Fed Laws cover workers rights very well. There is no need for unions.

EDIT: Froodish, remember the pertinent word in that phrase. 'Peacefully' assemble. You know, like Tea Partiers, unlike union thugs.

Yes, thanks to unions.

Without unions, you can be sure those rights would erode.

And btw, unions, like many organizations, do overreach sometimes, but make no mistake there is a war on to completely abolish them.

What are you saying here Blue? That all union members are thugs? That because there are bad actors who are union members we should deny others their constitutional rights?
