Who Do Unions Protect? These Guys, That’s Who

As you watch the screeching mobs of union thugs converging on the Michigan state capitol today, keep this story in mind. Remember those Chrysler workers caught smoking dope and drinking on their lunch breaks back in September, 2010? If not, here’s the story, presented for your viewing pleasure, from Detroit tv station WJBK

Now, an arbitrator has forced Chrysler to give these losers their jobs back. From Mediaite:

In 2010, the American automobile manufacturer Chrysler released several of its employes for negligent behavior after they were caught on camera drinking and possibly smoking marijuana during their lunch break. After many months of a union-backed arbitration process, however, Chrylser was forced to rehire the workers.

Unions give cover to the mediocre, and in this case worthless, employees that the excellent don’t need. No wonder they’ve required government coercion to extort money from the latter group of workers. Why should outstanding employees pay protection money to the union when they aren’t going to get high and/or drunk on their breaks? The answer is obvious, and also obvious is the reason that the opponents of Freedom to Work laws, which don’t prevent anyone from joining a union, are so enraged when these laws pass.

One thing that’s a tad confusion, though. I thought liberals were “pro choice?”

Barack Obama’s Idea of “Success” in Business

As we previously noted here, and Patricia Campion’s excellent reporting details, the idea that GM bailout was a “success” is like everything else touted by this lying, thieving Marxist crew; that is, it’s only by distorting the meaning of common English words that we can call what is clearly a disastrous failure a “success.” I hope you’re sitting down because I’ve got shocking news for you. Barack Obama is lying to you AGAIN.

Taxpayers lost, but Obama’s UAW buddies won. From the Heritage Foundation:

The bailout would have cost $26.5 billion less had the UAW been treated like GM’s and Chrysler’s other creditors. Instead, the Administration violated basic principles of bankruptcy law and transferred that money to the UAW—at taxpayer expense.

I suggest reading the whole report. It’s very illuminating. After you do, you’ll understand what Obama’s “shared prosperity” is all about. It’s not like he didn’t tell us before that he believes in “reward your friends and punish your enemies.” That is, after all, the Chicago Way.
