UAW chief admits some mistakes in
pushing Prop 2 despite Snyder´s
warnings

Detroit News, by Daniel Howes

Original Article

On election night, Bob King knew what lay ahead. Last month´s rejection of Proposal 2 assured organized labor´s defeat this week in Michigan´s lopsided right-to-work battle, culminating a series of miscalculations by the United Auto Workers president and others. Barely a month after voters killed a proposed collective bargaining amendment to the state constitution, the right-to-work loss weakens his credibility with the union's major employers, imperils his membership and potentially slows the union's dues flow, say labor analysts and ranking auto industry execs familiar with the situation.

Comments:
Bob King did not read the tea leaves. I predict a transplant will open an assembly line in a city of Detroit brownfield.
S.E. Michigan is still a major nerve center in the auto industry, research and engineering abounds. Right to work is a godsend in Mi. Thank-you Gov. Synder and legislature.

Given the Hostess Bakers´ union and now the UAW, seems like the GOP has secretly been developing these union strategies for defeat, now that the Repubs burnished their record in Nov with the latest electoral disaster.

It´s hard to count how many times the article made sure to mention Bob King was speaking from Geneva, Switzerland. And doesn´t he look like he belongs in Switzerland more than Detroit. Sounds like he´s a far, far, far left commie who based his ideas of Republicans on the ones in DC - haha! Now if we can infiltrate DC with Republicans who know how to quietly get things done, we´ll all be better off.

It is not difficult to understand why the unions thought they could win in Nov. Just ram it down everyone. That is the message from the top. We hold the power, or we think we do, so fall in line. This is what we want for the selected few.... the rest of you just pay UP>

Non-reality-based structures, ideas and activities become unsustainable by the shear dead weight of their own foolishness.

Those who habitually deal in these fantasies are much abetted by all of the rhetorical devices which serve to prevent open and honest debate.

I would suggest that modern progressivism is a religion masquerading as a political party whereas Islam is a political party masquerading as a religion.

Both are equally dangerous.

Both treat those who come bearing hard questions as the enemy.

The reason the unions lost this battle is because they could not figure out how to stuff the ballot boxes for Prop 2 and the State Legislature only has a fixed number of ballots and they did not control them.
If they can´t cheat they can´t win anything. The lesson here is that all the Republicans have to do is stop the Democrats and there accomplices (the Unions) from cheating or expose them for the cheaters they are.

Next time a union bigwig wants to spew out points like ´we are for higher wages for our workers´ he had better check out the reasons given for the JFK airport security wanting to go out on strike and shut down an airport before Christmas. Sounds like the union guards aren´t even making minimum wage. How´s that possible Mr. King?

I am an AFP Tent Survivor. I was there when union terrorists tore down the tent.

The unions thought the could with prop 2 make union contracts the supreme law in Michigan. They failed badly and that is good.

Tuesday, union terrorists thought they could silence by terror opposition to Right To Work by destroying AFP´s tent. Well, the got the tent, but lost the war. Right To Work passed.

Now comes an even larger legal battle. Property was damaged and destroyed. People´s lives were put at risk. Police refused to come to our aid.

The terrorism and police refusal will be challenged in court. I hope we can send a clear message to unions to behave or face huge judgements.

This battle has only started. They have awakened a sleeping giant!

Someone explain to me why the union should automatically get a ´cut´ of every workers paycheck and exactly how that is ´progessive´.

May the UAW go the way of the United Steelworkers´ Union, which reacted to the collapse of the US Steel industry by going on strike.

There is a bubbling of unrest under the surface and it´s too bad the GOP can´t take advantage of it! Our school system has taught our kids that capitalism is a dirty word. However the reality is it´s just the word, not the ideals of freedom and free markets that our young skulls of mush disagree with. We need an articulate voice to teach them our conservative ways. Rush is right, true conservative when tried always succeeds.

*´barking at the staff´ Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ´pretty much everyone´ and made the hotel staff ´fed up,´ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline. [Snip] But the Obamas´ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama´s mother Marian Robinson has been ´barking at the staff since she arrived.´ Government security forces from both China and the U.S. started Thursday to screen

She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

Vice President Biden told healthcare workers that "patience and empathy" are required to deal with frustrated ObamaCare enrollees and that the president demonstrated saint-like levels of both during the rollout. Speaking to a conference of community health centers in New York, Biden conceded that enrolling in ObamaCare could be "tedious," and early problems with HealthCare.gov worsened the problem. "We didn´t help you much at the front end here, man," Biden said, adding that he wanted to recommend President Obama "for sainthood" because he maintained his patience through the early technical problems with the website. "The president and I were as frustrated as anyone

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational
