Hum quietly to yourself: "Look for the Union Label"

Non-Union crews turned away from recovery effort.

People dying? People suffering? You wanna help? Great, you still gotta play ball.

I heard about that last night, this is the perfect billboard for stupidity and the reason I stay the hell out of any big cities in this state as much as possible. The Unions have yet trumped the needs of people in need because of greed. I believe we aught to make sure that all the relief they send down their is 100% Union Sponsored! Lets see how many Detroit Auto Manufacturers shell out cash and free labor for NYC and NJ?

How about limiting all food and fuel distribution to union grown products?

Hmmm, that means they get Milk and cheese from Happy cows in Cali only and no gas cause 99% of the farmers in this nation are private's and all of our gas has corn produced Ethanol!

Im sure the storm must have been created by Republicans cause it essentially whacked only the Left coast Wanabe cities and the rest of those effected have already pulled themselves out of the Emergency status for the most part. Let them pick and choose who will supply their relief, I hope they choke on those Union Labels cause thats about the only thing they will have to eat until the rest of the nation fixes them!

You can look for that Union label- but you better have a flashlight or candle to do it. News flash for Jersey, NY, Boston and Chicago- there is a whole country you seem to be unaware of. And despite what you seem to think, only 11.2% of the US workforce is represented by a union.

BTW, when you look only at the PRIVATE sector, removing govt employees that are union members, that number drops to 7.6% of the workers.

Ha...found it.



After the superstorm hit the northeastern U.S. Monday and Tuesday, the International Brotherhod of Electrical Workers reportedly demanding membership agreements from volunteer electric crews before allowing them to help restore power to millions of storm-crippled consumers in New York and New Jersey.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pledged Friday that he wouldn’t permit union interference with power restoration, but the governments of New York state and New York City have been silent on the matter.

The audio Hannity played Friday featured what he said were “union thugs” berating utility workers from Alabama.

“That’s who you hurt, scumbags! That’s who you f***ing hurt! Scumbags!” a loud voice on the audio recording is heard shouting. ”F*** all of you F***ing [unintelligible]! That’s who you hurt! You’re taking it from our families! Good jobs!”

“Go back where you came from! Look at her face! Scab! Look at her face, scab! That’s who you’re hurting, scab! You feel good tonight? Go home, you bunch of scabs! That’s who you’re hurting! Taking our jobs! That’s who you’re hurting, scabs! You’re hurting families!”

Hannity was outraged. “These are old people. They need heat. … Utility workers from Alabama, they get turned around,” he said.

“They get called scabs and scumbags by union thugs.”

“Who’s in charge here?” Hannity asked, after airing the audio clip. “Who is in charge that people from Alabama — utility workers that came up here to help — they get called ‘scabs’ and ‘scumbags’ and they’re turned back. Who’s in charge of this?”
But I'm a bad person because I'm conservative.:rolleyes:
