  • Former NLRB Attorney

    Such a shame that an agency with a proud and hard-earned heritage of integrity and effectiveness acquired in both Republican and democrat administrations has descended to the level of functioning as a mere mouthpiece for organized Labor's radical wing. The NLRB today is no more than the dummy mouthing the philosophy of the West-Wing ventriloquists, bound and determined to disassemble the capitalist system from within. This is what America gets (and deserves) for electing a third-rate academic left-wing ideologue and his cronies. Makes one nostalgic for Carter's competence and Harding's integrity.
