    A courageous decision and completely apt. The General Counsel and the Board have, since 2009 been taking the attitude that "The law is whatever I say it is." They are usurping the legislative functions of Congress to slavishly serve their master, Obama.
    The arrogance and contempt that they display for the Constitution and for 78 years of Board precedent are breathtaking! But then, they are following their Master in the White House.

    Judge Kocol misunderstood the basis for the remand. The issue to be decided -- whether the other employees were laid off to get to one specific individual for unlawful reasons -- is not the same issue as the one that was settled -- whether the employees were laid off properly under the contract. I don't know why the judge did not see that and got so ugly at the General Counsel.

  • Dear ColorBlindJustice

    Dear ColorBlindJustice: Obama and his administration are judged by most people not against Jesus Christ, but against the competition, which is woefully lacking. Although I disagree with the NLRB on many recent rulings and positions taken, I will continue to support Obama because on balance he has more intellectual integrity than the entire GOP combined. Your prediction about 2017 is ludicrous. Wait until Amercia sees the new crop of Republican candidates for President. Alert: GOP is reloading clown car with fresh clowns. Just look at the current death spiral of the GOP over the budget with Cruz at the helm. Or, continue to blame the media and make other excuses. Either way, the GOP is swirling down the toilet.

    And the Obammunists wonder why businesses are afraid to invest, grow and create jobs. Well, they'll have their answer on Jan. 20, 2017. That's when the nation can get back to pro-growth policies free from mobbed-up regulators and the overbearing political influence of corrupt unions.
