The Old, New NLRB: AmeriKa is getting depressing

In the latest low-rent underhanded tactic by a government gone wild we have the NLRB, the union's advocate in the workplace, putting the pedal to the metal to push through quickie elections in order to 'balance the ledger' so to speak, even though unions already win 60%+ of the time under the current rules which permits 38 days between petitions by unions and employee-decided elections.

Wny the rush?

Politics, of course.

Obama's appointment to the National Labor Relations Board, Craig Becker, who was stomped to death by the Senate, got his place on the Board temporarily via a "recess" appointment, a Constitutional process so bastardized it is now not even recognizable without dental records.

So, the clear mandate of the socialists is to ram a 10-15 day election schedule down the throat of business before Becker is tossed into the street like yesterday's coffee grounds on January 1, 2012, insuring unions election victories in at least 80% of all cases, the avowed intent of the current Adminstration.

The only sane member of the NLRB wrote in response to this "shoot them in the back" attack was as follows: “Make no mistake, the principal purpose for this radical manipulation of our election process is to minimize or, rather, to effectively eviscerate an employer’s legitimate opportunity to express its views about collective bargaining."

Bottom line: The entire US political process has lost total credibility. Next up? Revolution. I'll return for that.
