Employer: Workers, please strive to go from bad to average. Workers: No way!

As posted at and, for a Canadian audience. But it speaks equally well to Americans. This tangent is a sequel to my blog entry just posted, which speaks to the power of the people in wrecking the narrative advanced by the liberal-left and/or their mainstream media division.

Unions joining anti-bailout mobs? Now we KNOW it’s just more extreme left-wing politics.

We’ve all made fun of the abject hypocrisy of some of the complete idiots in the occupied territories of New York and other cities in America, inasmuch as they are among society’s chief beneficiaries of the taxpayers and their progressive cowardly governments’ myriad social welfare programs.

Unions are moving left, welcome higher taxes, because they rely on gov; But…

…It might well be asked why so many CEOs and huge corporations are also happily supporting the Left, and donating so much of their and their shareholders’ cash to Democrats  —  even the most left-wing or progressive Democrats.

Union Member Was F—ing Polite. Customer Was F—ing Lying.

Another big union blindly defends a union member  —  this member accused by a customer  —  a passenger on a regional transit system (Toronto’s “TTC”)  —  who saw him urinating in public while on duty in full view of at least that one passenger.  Who of course complained.  Couldn’t happen on account of our members […]

Six-Figure Bus Drivers & Other Working-Class Heroes

Can we stop acting as if people who work for the government are the heroes of working people? Fine, we understand that Wisconsin public sector employees like the system that pays them an average of $76,500 per year, with splendiferous benefits, and are fighting like wildcats against any proposed reforms to that system.

Uncivil Unions

As Obama rakes in historic campaign contributions from Wall Street money, liberals claim Republicans are beholden to “the rich.” However that may be, it is far more true, and far less remarked upon, that the Democratic Party is the party of public sector unions.
