Will Barack Obama Strike the Last Nail in the Coffin of the American Labor Union?

The executive branch went forward with the automaker bailout without Congress’s approval. The Republicans in Congress demanded that union wages, benefits, and pensions be reduced in exchange for bailout money, and the United Auto Workers refused to cooperate.


The executive branch gave the same requirements, but instead of being a prerequisite, it’s a vague requirement they have to meet by the end of March. They have to prove to the Obama administration that they have made the necessary changes to return in time to profitability, and if he uses George W. Bush’s criteria, the necessary changes are reducing union wages, benefits, and pensions to match the foreign automakers with U.S. factories. Barack Obama has left it unclear what he plans to do, stating that he agrees with and respects the president’s decision, but also saying that the brunt should not be exclusively on the workers.

Bush Comparison Seen As Unfair to Dogs

December 16, 2008

eng_shoe_gb_bm_baye_719651g-1This is the question now raised in Iraq: If they throw shoes at your face are you a combat troop or a noncombat troop? The answer may be important in helping to guide President Elect Obama’s strategy of reducing but continuing the genocidal occupation that has made a shoeless journalist one of the most beloved, if little known, people in the world overnight.

A related dilemma is this: If shoes become weapons, were the metal detectors, searches, and bribes to phony journalists successful? This strikes me as a similar question to the following: if box cutters become weapons, were the nuclear arsenal, the missile offense shield, and the empire of bases successful?

Yes, in his final visit to Baghdad before America returns the idiot to a village in Texas, the leader of the free world had not one, but two projectiles launched at him.

Iraqi Throws Shoes At Bush During Press Conference

December 15, 2008

Huffington Post                                                           jump to most recent post


Shoe-throwing Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi, a reporter with Cairo-based network Al Baghdadia Television, had experienced first-hand the brutal violence that consumed Iraq last year, reports the Washington Post:

Zaidi, colleagues said, was kidnapped by Shiite militiamen last year and was later released.

In an eyewitness account of the shoe-throwing incident, Modest Bee reporter Adam Ashton reports that Bush and Maliki had just finished their speeches and were preparing to take questions from the Iraqi media, who “have never had a chance to ask a question to the American president” when “the shoes started flying.”

Streisand: Principles, My Ass, You Fucking Hypocritical Douchebag

December 12, 2008

I don’t know why so many people — INCLUDING, it seems, BARBRA FUCKING STREISAND — seem to have forgotten that George W. Bush is responsible for the indescribable misery — joblessness, poverty, orphaning, maiming, death — of countless millions.

He is a LIAR. He is a MURDERER. He is a WAR CRIMINAL.

And Barbra Streisand KISSES this douchebag? She eats DINNER with him?

This would be like Jane Fonda kissing Richard Nixon circa 1972. I don’t know why more people aren’t holding La Streisand’s feet to the fucking fire over this, but I, for one, am thoroughly disgusted with this self-righteous asshole.
