The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Can Barack Obama “weather” the Storm, The Union Takeover of his Administration BECAUSE HE SOLD OUT TO THEM IN THE CAMPAIGN!

Here is a prime example and better said than I could put it:

UNIONS ARE CRIPPLING OBAMA
The home “weatherization” jobs in the stimulus bill were subjected to Davis-Bacon wage regulations — a favorite of the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Department — under which federal Labor Department officials establish “prevailing wage” rates that must be paid. Why do unions like this system? Because the “prevailing wages” are determined in a way that guarantees they are usually more than the actual market wage, sometimes by large margins. All that finagling takes a certain amount of bureaucracy, however — and time, says Slate.

According to the GAO report:

The Department of Labor spent most of last year trying to determine the prevailing wage is for weatherization work, a determination that had to be made for each of the more than 3,000 counties in the United States.
As a result, the Department of Energy apparently weatherized only 22,000 homes under the program.
Another pre-existing program, which doesn’t have to comply with Davis-Bacon, appears to have weatherized about 100,000 homes.
That’s OK. It’s not as if speed was important last year in terms of putting people to work. Oh wait, it was, says Slate.

“If you allocate money to weatherize homes, the homeowner gets the benefit of lower energy bills. You right away put people back to work, many of whom in the construction industry and in the housing industry are out of work right now. They are immediately put to work doing something,” President Obama told attendees at a recent Town Hall meeting in Elkhart, Indiana.

Instead, a year was wasted on mindless, union-demanded bureaucratic attempts to disingenuously replicate the labor market. Did Obama not know this would happen when he allowed the stimulus to be Davis-Baconized, or did he not care? He knows and cares, but is too weak to stand up to the unions, says Slate.

Obama’s SEIU Supporters Physically Attack Non-Supporters of His Healthcare Plan at Townhall Meetings!

It appears that the MOB attendees at the townhall forums are actually there is support of OBAMACARE and not against it AND those MOB THUGS are getting violent.

It seems that Barack Hussein Obama and his OBAMACARE plan is receiving PHYSICAL support in the form of THUGS from the SEIU. That is the union you will recall that strongly pushed for Obama to be elected and donated in excess of $60 Million dollars to his campaign.

Reports from Florida indicate the hastily scheduled townhall with Kathy Castor ended badly, as predicted, because of SEIU thugs.
The event was conveniently held in a forum where only 250 people could fit. 1000 people showed up. SEIU members were given reserved seating that took up at least half of the 250 seats. As people came in who visibly oppose the Democrats healthcare plan, SEIU members barred access to the room.
Here is a report from St. Louis reagrding the melee that broke out when the SEIU thugs were attacking a man trying to sell Tea Bag Flags to the people attending Rep. Carrnahan’s TownHall Meeting.
Here you have huge SEIU members attacking peaceful protesters.
A white SEIU member attacks a black conservative….where are the calls
of racism? Notice when the police show up – The SEIU member cannot believe
he is getting arrested. I guess he thought when Obama told them to push back
twice as hard he would not get in trouble. I wonder if Obama will say the police
acted “stupidly” in arresting the SEIU member?
They arrested the SEIU idiot for his own protection.”

The question here is; Does Barack Hussein Obama know about this AND does he care? I guess we can add; Will Obama apologize for the actions of the goons that support his plan and dote on his every word?

Obama is in the Unions Pocket – Here is PROOF!

 According to the Washington Times on 12/18/2008

Gerald McEntee, AFSCME President,said this is how the Unions expect to be paid back for their support of Barack H. Obama and the rest of the Democrats in 2008! “The payback would be Employee Free Choice Act – that would be a vehicle to strengthen and build the American labor movement and the middle class.” 

What he really means is it would strengthen the union hold on American industry and commerce!

This of course would be detrimental to the worker and the employer while only a benefit to the sagging union roles in this country. The use of the “CARD CHECK” system of voting opens the doors for flagrant intimidation of workers to join a union.
