very disturbing - the Union take over of America is what obumbles promised the unions.
WE don’t need this ‘dream’ carried on: “SEIU! SEIU! SEIU!
This is no small matter.
Your 38 years of being a US Postal Worker bureaucrat has impeded your ability to make any sort of logical connection to reality.
They got where they are the old fashioned way ~ fear, intimidation, beatings, stolen elections, bribes.....
Time for a clean up, and if the FBI can't do it, somebody else will have to. Wonder where we can find patriotic red-blooded Americans to do that job?
Townhall perhaps? The TEA Party? Maybe the RNC national committee?
What about from the ranks of union members dissatisifed with what's going on. That's what FDR did. It worked. Time to do it again if we can get these anti-union jerkoffs out of the way. They'd rather have underground labor agitation replete with Commies than something more useful and normal.
The choice is you believe in American values and American rights or you don't.
While the concern and activities you reference occurred roughly as you relate, do you hold that they were successful and in fact removed communist influence from American labor unions or even public employee unions only?
From my considerable experience with unions since the 1960's, I would testify that the effort to rid unions of communists was no more than 50% successful at best.
My statement above on public sector collective bargaining is pretty definitive in my view... Once you understand that statement - there is no logical justification for public sector unions...
I’m familiar with FDR’s view on the subject. Not a crazy fan of him, but I’m in alignment with him on this subject...
You can post this and then have the nerve to complain about personal attacks. You really are a piece of work. And by the way I am a retired Social Studies teacher and you are the one who is clueless. The last time I looked Obama was for you union lackeys!
Man, you’re dangerous! :D How about posting a warning first? LOL!
Doesn’t surprise me one bit. He wants that UNION Label.
You make a good point - of course it would be ridiculous to think that the communists were eradicated and of course it would be naive not to look at the SEIU of today and not see that they are still communist statist radicals even if they were at one time eradicated.
Besides, there is no way in hell to make the case that to be anti government union is the same thing as being pro communist, as this 38 year veteran of the Post Office wants us to believe.
why don’t you two take it to the “private’ box - geeze
I don’t know who you expect to flame you on that point. Most everyone is in agreement with you. I certainly am.
State logic... Get flamed... Just seems to be the way of things...
The SEIU deal is a different kettle of fish.
Laborer's Union let down it's guard and SEIU started winning representational votes. You can tie that to the influence of the insurance company owned by the Tisch family who pretty well took over LUNA. it's analogous to Fidelity Trust's retirement plan salesmen opening up the ranks of so many Main Stream Protestant bodies to homosexuals ~ they pay well, have no dependents and die younger which actually reduces the cost of the retirement plans for "the others" substantially. Think that didn't sell well to churches with declining membership?
You're still going to have Democrats working in the government ~ unless you want to start stripping them of their civil liberties (which probably ought to be done in many cases just for general principles).
I have no doubt that there are still Commies in the government who are ready to step out and organize Communist led unions and they are waiting for the time to do that.
We also have those who are in the Conservative Movement who want us to believe that we will do well by eradicating unionism among federal employees.
They'd rather do that than privatize government agencies.

Uh no, most conservatives would be in favor of both remedies. The two are not mutually exclusive by any means. They would both be a huge improvement over the status quo.
DOES NOT HAPPEN, but your's is a special class of human.
>> I’m sure you called in begging for a refund of all your postage on your campaign literature after you lost. DOES NOT HAPPEN, but your’s is a special class of human. >>
WTF does that mean?
No wait. Never mind. I don’t waste my time with government union members like you.
You should focus on local and state unionization ~ that's where the big problems with the marching morons and Commie agitation has been.
Why don't you take care of places where there's a problem FIRST.
Never was a member. Just worked there telling them what to do.

I am against ALL public sector unions — yes, that’s PUBLIC SECTOR which means FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL. And ALL of them are a Federal issue because the STIM BILL bailed out state and local unions!!
And as the moderator (see my tag line) I asked all the candidates about this issue 8 days ago in fact, and I tied the state and local unions to Federal stim funds as a way to make it pertinent to the Presidential election, and all but one were expressly AGAINST ALL PUBLIC SECTOR UNIONS.
And the question, if I do say so, was brilliantly crafted.
I also think she’s deep into the sauce tonight. Her commie argument was simply beyond delusional. It has to have been chemically powered to boot.
They don't have the right to strike and haven't.
You struck first.
You started the personal attacks by calling him ignorant and an Obama supporter. Looks like you can dish it out but not take similar jabs in return. JMO.
I have yet to see anything of the kind out of you.
You didn’t read everything did you? Try again.
Have you watched it yet?
That escaped your attention I am sure.
How old are you?
I’m not 100% sure of the dates or details, since my parents were rather close-mouthed on the subject, but sometime prior to 1942, my father, who was a very low-level Federal employee, was strongly advised by someone with official status to lose an entire group of acquaintances who were (or were suspected of being) communists. He was working in DC and shortly thereafter transferred to the Midwest.
So, *something* did go down back then. I also remember being told that the entire family could be subject to Pinkerton investigations, at random, every few years. I was counseled before going to college (1961) to never sign any membership list of any organization.
Good comeback. Not.
What I read is your insult followed by your invocation of the personal-attacks rule (in response to what was a far MILDER attack than YOURS which preceded it).
Is “flaming hypocrite” a personal attack?
Because you’re a retired postal employee union-eer, I’ll add: That’s a rhetorical question.
Nice NOT knowin’ ya.
There's also a video today of him showing his awful grasp of current events / foreign affairs:
No I didn’t ..can you count?
We'd had two years of close contact with the USSR at the time (sending them food, ammunition and vehicles for the war) and Stalin's guys decided we were probably an unreliable ally so they began the big push to get their domestic Communist allies into the government to insure we stayed in the war.
This more recent business of pulling out of VietNam, Iraq, etc. before completion of the task at hand is not new in this country, and the Russians didn't wish to be eradicated by the Germans, nor did the Commies want to have to turn into Nazis (or go to the oven factories for reassembly into constituent atoms).
Next thing you know the US government had Communist union organizers organizing!
Roosevelt had a stark choice ~ give in to the American union organizers (from the AFL/CIO movement) or find himself answering to Communist dominated unions.
Stalin was pretty thorough. He had control of people like I.F.Stone for example. I.F.Stone managed to keep Communists in the US fully informed regarding Politboro positions on everything. People like David Axelrod's mother worked for I.F.Stone.
He grew up under the tutelage of a mother who was part of Joe Stalin's Communist Party propaganda and internal US communication apparatus.
That stuff continued on after the end of WWII.
There are people here who want you to FORGET what went on in the dark days of WWII. You'd better believe Obama and his Leftwingtard lieutenants want you to give up your concern over Communist infiltration of the federal workforce.
They were threating to strike when Reagan fired the air traffic controlers.
How ironic that you write “truth” when you are such a liar.
Take a good look at #2. You might imagine that’s directed at factory only unions, company sponsored unions, small locals in specialty trades ~ but it was originally designed to allow more socially acceptable unions to kick out the Wobblies and a wide variety of Anarchist groups pretending to be unions (remarkably like the “Occupy WS” groups today).
I still support him 100 percent. He says he supports the “RIGHT” for them to make fools of themselves. I agree. Who cares. We could not have had a better outlook on this. I say let them continue making fools of themselves until November 2012. I love it. Killing each other, getting arrested, making a mess, getting kicked out of places, stinking up the place. I love it!!!!!
Good, we agree.
It didn't take the Commies long to figure out they'd never take America by confrontation and force, their only hope was stealth, sabotage, agitation, dissatisfaction, and dissent. Communism was already establishing such a poor record that the news of it had to be suppressed, and communism had to disappear.
So the overt commies did just that, and their covert compatriots stayed right where they were and sabotaged away.
They have been incredibly successful, so much that most commies nowadays don't even know that they are commies.
Got doubts? Consider the fact that every environmentalist/climate change/cap and taxer is a commie tool or a covert commie working toward the confiscation by regulation of all private property. Environmental concerns are just a ruse, and the Alinsky method is always employed to create the crisis need for Marxist solutions that are never properly called "Marxist".
Certainly all unions need close scrutiny for communist infiltration, most especially public employee unions, and even if found to be clean, public employee unions should be forbidden by law from collective bargaining on monetary issues as their employers have no barganing rights at all.
You mean the strikers who got fired? Not everybody went on strike. Not everybody got fired. PATCO got decertified too.
Federal employees have no right to strike.
That is not name calling ~ I didn't call him ignorant, but if you want to, you are free to do that.
BTW, "ignorance" is remediable. Stupidity is different.
There were NO COMPLAINTS.
The Post Office department could create difficulties that could tie up most of Congress for months at a time ~ with NO WINNERS.
Be careful what you ask for.
Current US position: support the rebels against Khaddafy.
That’s hardly a policy. Or at least not a relevant one.
From who, I certainly heard a lot from my fellow citizens, and I seem to remember the term "going postal" having a specific origin.
I think we are going to fail to agree on whom should be directing a Constitutional agency, the people, or the union execs.
Public sector unions have caused much of the fiscal crisis and bankruptcy problems for European countries and yet you and Cain think public sector unions are ok?
It is a major philophical deviation from conservative view points and you lame reference to FDR etc doesn’t wash.
As nominee, the question becomes how many GOP House & Senate seats does he take down with him.
More and more it looks like this Emperor has No Clothes.
