    The Obammunists don‘t care, Mr. Atlanta. Nor do they necessarily understand that their relentless anti-employer actions and rhetoric have done more to retard economic growth and job creation during the past five years than any financial crisis hangover could ever do. They ignore the obvious failed history of command-and-control economies at our children‘s peril.

    I believe the NLRB‘s general counsel‘s previous job was that of GC of the Operating Engineer‘s international union and a member of the Board of Directors of the AFL-CIO. That it hasn‘t occurred to the administration that these partisan fighters installed in policy making positions damage the public‘s respect for the rule of law is troubling, or maybe the current administration does recognize this but chooses not to care.
