The trough that feeds all public sector unions is in dire straights. That trough, friends, is us… you and me. Let’s forget for the moment that these self-same unions, and their bought and paid for Marxist political hacks, are at the bottom of much of the economic chaos we find ourselves in. Let’s just deal with the situation as it exists now.
All across the nation municipal, county, state and federal service sector unions are doing their share of sucking the air out of the economy. It would be unfair to claim that the country’s woes are the sole province of the unions either… but the unholy reach of these unions into the highest offices of our government first became apparent during the 2008 run-up to the Presidential elections, particularly the goon-like tactics of SEIU in their unholy alliance with ACORN.
There were plenty of Patriots at these events surprising, I think, even the goons themselves as the Patriots stood up to them. We had pictures of goons caught in the act of being goons that went viral almost immediately. It was sort of funny though. In some of the clips I reviewed it was plainly not on the goons itinerary to pick on anyone that looked like they might fight back. Instead, they picked on women, old men and cripples.
Their unbelievably filthy, sexist, racist statements recorded on the spot and sent to computers around the world, including mine, have shaped the argument far more graphically than anything I, or any writer, can equal. The image of SEIU goons kicking a disabled black man on the ground generated a not-so-slowly boiling anger in Americans who were already in a citizens’ uprising headed by the emerging Tea Party Patriot groups.
The unions are now taking their goons on the road all over the country to try and intimidate your legislators. As Patriots we are going to have to supply the spine they may not have to withstand the onslaught. You and I are going to have to become even more active.
I’m not necessarily opposed to private sector unions per se. One of my sons is in a union. This particular union understands that the company must make a profit or there will be layoffs, no contract, no company and no union.
Therein lays the great difference. We saw what President Obama did to reward his union cronies from the first day he took the oath… between his grifting massive amounts of stimulus dollars to the banks most responsible for the mortgage crisis and his blatant payoffs to the unions, I don’t think we’ve seen a more totally morally bankrupt and corrupted government in the history of our Republic. This government has to go.
America can’t afford Barack Hussein Obama and the public sector unions’ price tag. And don’t think for a second we can’t break the backs of these unions… don’t listen to to the blather.
By the way, just in case one of your brain-challenged friends uses the time-worn ‘collective bargaining is a right’ argument that the unions have been spouting… there is no such thing… it’s a lie, it doesn’t exist.
