Reporting from NN on unions: How the URSCR, the most powerful union in America, is destroying our country
Here at the Netroots Nation convention in San Jose, CA, the presence of various American labor unions is in evidence everywhere.
The National Education Association tells us a sad story about how 300,000 American teachers have been laid off in recent years -- ever since No Child Left Behind decided to leave teachers behind too.
The Laborers' International Union of North America says that they are ready, willing and able to put our country back to work, "rebuilding America's energy systems, crumbling roads, bridges and transit systems." Isn't it time for them to finally start implementing our "Rooftop Revolution" and bring solar power into every home?
The Alliance for American Manufacturing demands the creation of more stuff that is "Made in America" -- and I have their key chain to prove it too. "Make corporations pledge to move jobs back to the United States where they belong." It's as simple as that.
The SEIU gave a Karaoke party here. I got to sing along with 2 Chainz -- and support American workers at the same time.
The unions here at Netroots Nation all represent good people, strong workers and proud Americans, trying to put the American economy back together again.
But there is one union in America that did not come to Netroots Nation.
There is one union in America that is doing everything it can to block our American economy from moving forward.
There is one union in America that goes on strike constantly, for months at a time, even though these strikes severely damage our country.
There is one union in America that bullies and threatens its members to keep them in line.
There is one union in Americ that misappropriates its members funds -- and even outright steals them if it thinks it can get away with it.
There is one union in America that is lazy, self-serving, corrupt, inefficient and determined to destroy the very fabric of our country whenever it can.
"What union is that?" you might ask.
It's the URSCR, of course. The Union of Republican Senators and Congressional Representatives. And Washington DC is their union town.
PS: I'm currently attending a workshop on "Red-White-and-Blue-Washing," wherein our good American jobs are being all shipped overseas and yet corporations try to make it appear that these jobs are being created at home. NOT.
Thanks again, URSCR.
Advertizements for myself: In these hard times of brutal (and illegal) corporatist ball-busting socialism-for-the-rich-only, I am doing whatever I can to make a spare dollar. Here are some of my current alternate-economy schemes that never seem to work -- but I keep hoping!
If anyone ever wants to hire me on as a travel writer (or war correspondent), "Have laptop, will travel!"
Need someone to help you throw out stuff? I'm really good at deciding what needs to be thrown out (starting with all those corporate-owned bums in Washington!)
Need an actor to play an older woman in your movie? Then I'm your man! I can portray all kinds of older women -- from judges, business execs and other insane zombies to bag ladies, cancer patients, kindly grandmothers and dying patients in rest homes. I've played them all. So send me a script and let's do this. Hollywood, here we come! Here's my reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C91uEYjLUXA
Are you a plaintiffs' attorney who is tired of writing those pesky personal injury settlement briefs all the time? No problem! I can write them for you. Years of experience. And pay me only if you win the case.
I recently got my Notary Public commission!
Need a Notary Public? Have seal, will travel. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll stamp your document, make it official and only charge $10. Of course if you live outside of Berkeley, I may have to charge travel expenses -- but am well worth it!
I also wrote a book about going on Hajj (also included as a chapter in "Bring Your Own Flak Jacket," but this book is cheaper -- but it's worth buying them both!) My book on the Hajj is so outstanding that I bet even Christian fundamentalists will love it!
