WASHINGTON The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is ostensibly a public worker union. In truth, it is nothing more than an appendage of the Democratic Party. One hundred percent of its political contributions go to Democrats, and it works tirelessly to increase government spending and stop Republicans who want to reform state government.

This is what happens when workers aren't forced to participate.
Who in their right mind (besides libtards) would think government/teaching/law enforcement unions are a good idea? Have they made anything better besides retirees in Florida or Arizona who draw an obscene tax payer funded “retirement”?
The same goes for the media. What they’re doing has to be illegal. They’ve moved from bias into colluding with Dems and using their talking points to frame their stories.
How long ago, if ever, have the unions NOT been political?
You are soooooo correct. There’s got to be some way to legally curb the media’s colluding with Dems. There’s got to be some way it is illegal or unconstitutional.
If the MSM successfully incites CWII, I have a hunch they will be one of the first ones to be overrun and destroyed.
Are you sure which is an appendage of whom?
What would it take to eliminate this “union”? Seems like a good thing for some real public service-minded individual to make into a project.
Agreed. There of course has to be. There is really no difference now between what the DNC and the MSM say about 98% of the time. They’ve decided not to represent the views of a huge percentage of the country and have adopted DNC views wholesale, including almost the entire DNC terminology. “Undocumented immigrant,” “marriage equality,” “gender assigned at birth,” etc. They readily accept what Dems say by default, and attack Republicans who don’t go along with Dems.
Then on top of it, corporations are funding this political speech using money they’ve made off the American public. They’re basically buying advertising for the DNC.
I’ve started researching a bit into the legal aspects of this, but I have to think laws are being broken but it’s like with everything else, the Democrat and GOPe side have virtual impunity.
