Liberals Like Bill Press Are Putting the Ass in EmbarASSment
And ya know what? I don’t give a flying flip!
Yes, President Obama still dominates the Jewish vote, beating out Mitt Romney 64 percent to 39 percent, according to the newest Gallup poll. But considering that Obama racked up a whopping 78 percent of the Jewish vote in 2008, this is a significant dip for him.
Among Jews, Obama’s current 64 percent to 29 percent advantage compares with a 74 percent to 23 percent advantage before the election in 2008. Thus, he is running 10 points lower among Jewish registered voters than in 2008, which is five points worse than his decline among all registered voters compared with 2008.
These numbers aren’t just notable because of what they say about Obama — the Republican Jewish Coalition notes that Mitt Romney’s 29 percent support would be “the highest level of Jewish support for a Republican presidential candidate in 24 years.”
You’ll excuse me if I find ANY support by the Jewish community totally incredulous. I would find it just as incredulous to learn there were German Jews who supported Hitler!
This is the guy who supports the very barbarians who would destroy Israel! The very same barbarians who worked WITH Hitler during WWII. This is the guy who has turned his back on our ONLY ally in the Middle East. And yet, there are American Jews who support him, overwhelmingly, by the look of the numbers. Are you freakin’ kidding me???? You dipwads may not stand with Israel, but this Christian does!!
I’m just flabbergasted! Evidently, some folks don’t know their own history. So when are y’all gonna start sacrificing your children to Baal again? Oh, that’s right. You already do with your support of the baby murdering DEMOCRATS! Silly me!
It’s no secret I have no fondness for unions. Yes, the unions did get a major smack down last week in Wisconsin, but with their mentality of “give me what I want, or I’ll destroy you”, this war against the thugs is far from over. The history of unions is long and bloody. Don’t believe me? Just “Google” it! Bing it! Whatever search engine you choose, you’ll come up with thousands upon thousands of pages of facts and figures. We no longer have a need for these brutes, and it’s past time for them to go. Take a good hard look at Detroit, and what was once a thriving city. Enter the unions to the car manufacturers, a constant of Democrat ‘leadership’ (they go hand in hand), and what you have today is the result. A third world country, smack dab in the middle of the United States. Was there ever a need for unions? Yeah, actually, there was. Was there a need for the violence that came with said unions? Not in my opinion, unless it was in self defense.
The worst are the very large national, and the government, unions.
What the late 19th, and all of the 20th, centuries brought us with the unions was loss of jobs in the U.S. Couple that with over burdening regulations of the government, and voila! Jobs in China, Mexico, Indonesia, etc. A trend that has been growing since the 1960s. If a company is paying out its profits to it’s employees, through the demands of the ever more greedy union bosses, that company will either go OUT of business, or move to where they can make a profit, and pay dividends to those who invest their own money in that company.
Enter Obama and his union thugs on the NLRB. Want to see more and more businesses closing their doors in the U.S.? Allow this unelected board of feckless weasels to continue undermining legitimate businesses. We no longer need such a board in this country. We have more than enough laws, passed through Congress (which isn’t their job by the way) to protect employees from ruthless ‘robber barons’. (Oh, and they weren’t really ‘robber barons’ either. Do your homework.) What we have here is corruption, in its purest form. Get rid of Obama…get rid of his minions. It’s just that simple! Manufacturing is just one example where the unions have destroyed businesses. Another example….public education. The unions don’t give a hoot and a holler whether your child is educated or not! Once upon a time, they really did. I got a pretty good education. Now days, ask any public educated high school graduate about something you learned in the fourth grade, and you get that deer in the headlights look.
Any honest business person supporting this regime deserves what he/she gets….run out of the country. And all you union members, whining about you need MORE? Be glad you even have a job! And grow up! You are not entitled to DIDDLY!
Unions Out to Divide and Conquer Workplaces
Unions suffered a resounding defeat in Wisconsin last week. They’re far from down and out, however. Unable to reverse their decline in membership under existing law, they are circumventing Congress and using the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to create an entirely new type of union. A new rule hatched by the Obama-appointed board, authorizes the creation of union cells—organizing a few employees within a company to gain a foothold—which will severely impact businesses.
Until recently, employees organized based on shared job characteristics—for example, all the hourly employees at a firm. The new practice allows micro-unions representing only a small minority of workers in a company. Instead of a grocery store’s employees having a union, the store could face separate unions for cashiers, shelf-stockers, and janitors.
The NLRB permitted this in its Specialty Healthcare decision last year, allowing organized labor to form unions by job title. A decision last month by one of the NLRB’s regional directors demonstrated just how harmful—and absurd—a policy this is. The regional director green-lit a union election at the Bergdorf Goodman department store. But most employees will not get to vote; only shoe salesmen will cast ballots. Not all shoe salesmen, however. Only those selling women’s shoes.
