Trash politics: Labor union

Mitt Romney's garbage man is starring in a new attack ad that features him at work picking up trash outside the Republican nominee's $12 million California mansion. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) labor union features the garbage man in an ad that juxtaposes him talking about how tough his job it with Romney's notorious '47 per cent' comments in which he says that 'my job is not to worry about those people' who don't pay federal income tax. In the ad, the garbage man states: 'My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up

Some people pick up trash.
Some people are trash.

Just how far out of context can they go with this stuff. Romney was talking about not worrying about trying to get them to switch their vote by offering tax cuts, nothing else.

Continuous dishonesty by the Administration and the President himself. Disgusting.

Way to go Richard. You've probably NEVER heard what Romney actually said, but you CERTAINLY don't understand what he was trying to say.

My dad always taught me that there was no shame in an honest day's work, and to be especially grateful to the guys who do the dirty jobs. Don't think my dad would've thought too much of this guy, though. He also taught me that you don't whine about your circumstances, you change them.

Anyone who can understand what he is saying is most likely voting for Obama anyway. If the director wanted to gain new supporters, he should have used subtitles.

With these garbage trucks there is no lifting involved. The cans are rolled to the truck and hydraulics do the rest.

I pay my garbage man to do a job. I am not going to go to the curb and say, "Great job, getting that automatic arm to pick up the can and dump it!"

No one needs to praise you for doing what you're paid to do. Be glad you have a job, period.

Whiny, pathetic liberals.

The Obama desperation smells far worse than anything good ole Richard's truck ever picked up.

I have never seen a garbage man hoist a can to dump it into the truck. The trucks have mechanicsl hoists that lift and dump those special cans (for which we pay a pretty penny each month).

Waste Management Co. picks up almost all San Diego County trash, including LaJolla. From its website:

Keep your children and pets at a safe distance from the truck. Our drivers love to see happy neighbors during their routes, but prefer that you stay on the front porch or in the yard - do not get near or climb on the truck whether it is parked or at work.

Nothing about hugging, but it is tough to hug from the front porch or the yard, especially when your house is on a hill above the road.

our local garbage collection guys do lift the cans. They did so in IL also. But when we lived in CA all the trucks were equipped with ''arms'' that lifted the cans. I also went digging around and found that the average waste collector makes approx $20.28 per hour in CA. Data I located didn't mention union membership or local pay variances. And they WILL NOT collect anything NOT in a can. That's a special collection at an additional cost.

I remember in Chicago that getting on as a garbage collector (particularly as a driver) was a job you could only get thru ''connections''. Don't know exactly how it works now but when we lived in the city you truly had to ''know'' someone...

He won't be picking up Romney's trash for long. Mitt should hire a private contractor and dump the union goon brand of service. Or better yet, hire somebody to check the trashmens' IDs every trip to make sure they aren't a threat.

Romney cares so little he has over $4 million on last year's tax return under charitable deductions. Just a greedy one-percenter.

And how much did all the Democrats in Congress give last year taken together?

The Democraps have hit a new low using Romney's garbage man in a hit piece. That fellow probably doesn't even know what 47% Romney is referring to.

He's lying about something he knows nothing about, if he doesn't personally know Romney.

A new low, even for the party of the takers.

Growing up, my brother always said he wanted to be a garbage man. Our neighbor was one, and he had the best house, the newest & flashiest car, a cabin-cruiser docked at a nice marina, and his kids had all the latest toys.

Oh my, my, my. Now Mitt Romney has LOST the TRASH-Collector vote? A pathetic union-whiner named Richard Hayes, who is Mitt Romney's PERSONAL garbage man, appears in an AD complaining about "No hugs", "No appreciation"? Boohoo! Must be a pretty MACHO trash collector, eh? Let this genius, Hayes, name ONE demonrat who DOES care about him and he may be worth paying attention to. BTW, WHAT does the $12m "mansion" have to do with Mitt Romney "not caring". Never mind..

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
