The eventual GOP candidate should promise to withdraw this lawsuit (if he/she has a backbone.)
As the author mentions - welcome to Atlas Shrugged America.
Germany in the 1930’s, now available in purple.
I asked a buddy of mine that worked at American Airlines about the necessity of joining the union in a unionized industry while working in a Right to Work state.
His response was something along the lines of “No you don’t have to but your tires don’t have to have any air in them when you come out to go home.”
Their communist chairman and the rest of their heavily-leftist board have cozied up to the Zero's administration since day one.
Guess there's no honor among thieves, eh? So much for all of those bundled contributions from Washington state leftist employees, not to mention agreeing to chair the President's Export Council, which operates as an advisory committee on international trade.
In addition to reading Animal Farm and 1984 please read the below book:
It Can’t Happen Here is a semi-satirical American political novel by Sinclair Lewis published in 1935 by Doubleday, Doran. It describes the rise of a populist politician who calls his movement “patriotic” and creates his own militia (the Minute Men or “MM”, paralleling Hitler’s “SS” ) and takes unconstitutional power after winning election - mirroring what Hitler was doing in Germany at the time of writing.
The Obama Administration is doing much more than this to support his union supporters in Washington State. There's also the issue with the KC-45 Air Force Tanker. The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) partnered with Northrop Grumman to win the KC-45 contract in 2008. EADS planed to build the tanker and other EADS aircraft in Mobile, AL.

The forerunner of the trans-Atlantic shift is the EADS research and development center in Mobile, Alabama. Roughly 90 US engineers are already engaged in research for the European plane maker. The current plans call for the tanker version of Airbus's successful A330 model to be assembled in Mobile, where Northrop Grumman, the company's US joint venture partner, will install the electronic systems. But the plans go even further than that.In late January, not long before the US Department of Defense awarded the contract to EADS, Airbus CEO Thomas Enders paid a visit to Alabama to lay additional bait. Should the Airbus and Northrop Grumman joint venture win the Air Force contract, he said, Airbus would also assemble cargo versions of the A330 in Mobile in the future.But this doesn't necessarily mean that Airbus will stop there. Once production has gotten successfully underway in Mobile, this provincial city could conceivably become Airbus' fourth-largest assembly site for passenger aircraft, next to Hamburg, Toulouse and Tianjin, China. "There are no such plans at present," says and EADS spokesman. Not yet, that is.
Obama canceled that contract as soon as he was in office. That screwed Mobile, AL out of a lot of jobs. Earlier this year, the KC-45 contract was awarded to Boeing (Washington State).

Boeing won the U.S. Air Force's $35 billion contract to build 179 aerial refueling tankers, Pentagon and Air Force officials announced Thursday.
The award starts with a $3.5 billion contract for tanker engineering and manufacturing development to deliver the first 18 of what are now called "KC-46A" tankers by 2017.
Boeing's 767-based NewGen Tanker competed against EADS North America's Airbus A330-based KC-45 tanker in the Air Force's third try at starting to replace Eisenhower-era Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers.
Northrop Grumman pulled out of the latest contest, saying the Air Force's criteria favored Boeing's smaller plane. But EADS North America said it could offer a better price, despite the size difference, because it no longer had Northrop's need for profit, Airbus is producing A330s at a higher rate than Boeing is building 767s, lowering costs, and existing A330-based tankers and refueling systems are closer to KC-45 than existing 767-based tankers and systems are to NewGen, meaning less development risk.
Analysts gave EADS the edge in recent weeks, after release of battlefield assessments of the two tankers reportedly showed a big advantage for the KC-45. The Air Force sent the assessments to both bidders accidentally, at first, and then shared the data again after learning that an EADS employee inadvertently looked at the Boeing information.
Then Boeing announced the plans for the Charleston, SC plant. Boeing planned to produce several products in SC. This was followed by the NLRB ruling.
Charleston Regional Business Journal, By Matt Tomsic, April 25, 2011
The National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint Wednesday, calling for Boeing to open a second 787 final assembly line in Washington state to remedy what it calls an illegal transfer of work to non-union facilities in North Charleston.
Boeing is building a multi-million dollar facility near Charleston International Airport to complement its first final assembly line in the Seattle area.
The board is pursuing an order to require Boeing to maintain a second assembly line in Washington state, though the complaint does not ask for the line in South Carolina to be closed, according to a news release from the NLRB.
This is one of the worst examples of unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding of special interest groups that Ive ever seen, Graham said in a statement emailed from his office. In this case, the (National Labor Relations Board) is doing the bidding of the unions at great cost to South Carolina and our nations economy.
The plot gets thicker! Obama has been making recess appointment to the NLRB which he knows will not be confirmed by the Senate!!
The Daily Caller, By Katie Gage, Published: 6:07 PM 09/16/2010
The Obama administration inserted former American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) attorney Craig Becker into the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) after Beck was rejected by the US Senate. Considering that he has refused to recuse himself on decisions the NLRB makes affecting his former employers and Big Labor friends, Beckers credibility is in serious question, while his bias is not.
Secondly, in a recent report to the United Nations Human Rights Committee, the Obama administration claimed that organizing a union in America is difficult and that that difficulty constitutes a human rights offense. The audacity of this claim is bad enough, but for our own government to make it on an international level is a perfect example of the great lengths to which the president will go to draw attention to Big Labors demands.
Obama is screwing the 'Right To Work' Red State South!! With an 'In you face' attitude, he is pulling every stunt in the book to support his union buddies!
And this story is not getting near enough coverage in the media!
Obama may have attacked the wrong industrial giant here.
Boeing is very savvy politically. Yes, they work both parties to gain favor and win contracts.
However, Obama is weaker politically right now. Boeing has enormous resources to use against Obama and other dims.
In short, Obama may have won some points with his union buds while seriously enraging Boeing and other large companies.
They thought they could “buy” Obama, but he does not stay BOUGHT!
