Trumka: Card check will happen
in second Obama term

Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/5/2012 5:08:26 PM

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka tells The Atlantic's Molly Ball that so-called card-check legislation will happen in a second Obama term: "[...] You'll see it," he says. "That's within the next term." How is that possible, without a Democratic House of Representatives or 60 votes in the Senate? Trumka smiles. His eyes twinkle. "There's another election between now and then," (Snip) The legislation would make it easier for labor unions to organize by abolishing the secret ballot — and was a top labor priority during Obama's first term. And it's one of the enduring sources of tension between the labor movement

As far as I am concerned, the unions have become another source of organized crime in this country!

Push button unionism won't happen in a Romney presidency, which is upcoming. Trumka is a Stalinist, a union thug, pure and simple. Bye bye, Lard Ass.

To summarize this proposal - Let's say you have 30 employees. One day a union thug shows up with union cards signed by 16 of the 30 employees (perhaps with the help of a little intimidation). Presto! You have a union. You cannot respond.

Then, you have to negotiate immediately with the thugs or a settlement will be imposed on your company.

The end of business as we know it.

Trumka is a short fat thug. He wants to take away the secret ballot. He has marched with Communists.

But tomorrow... I have power.

My vote... my vote...will cancel his vote.

Unions are against drilling for oil, making the steel that will go to construct the pipes and construction beams, and don't support transporation jobs because they're supporting Democrats who are stopping this activity.

It is because of guys like this and their dues payers that I will never have employees.

I grew up watching employees steal from my father, so when he offered to sell me the business, it was an easy - no thanks!

I learned all their tricks and would have caught them stealing and shirking in the first week. Impulse would have overrode wisdom, and they would have been all gone inside the first month.

If you want to run a business become a one man band. Contract what you can't do yourself and let someone else pay the thieves.

Card Check. Isn't that the Union thug rule where union rank and file members no longer have the right to vote their conscience in private on union matters?

Raise your hand in an open vote against the union and get it broken into an unrepairable mass of crushed bones and sinuew when as you get to your car in the parking lot.

Trumka reminds me way too much of Josef Stalin.

OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.

After Easter services at the Anglican cathedral in Sydney in the morning, Prince William and Duchess Kate changed clothes, collected George and headed for the Taronga Zoo, Sydney´s harbor-side menagerie of Australia´s wonderfully quirky wildlife.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
