The 2010 Union Voting Guide - Use at your Own Peril

 

Posted by CotoBlogzz 10-17-2010

 

 

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - There is a lot of truth in the old adage that "we should not judge a book by its cover." But what if we have access to the Cover, the Table of Contents and the Appendix? Can we get a good idea as to the contents of the book? In other words, using another adage "tell me who you associate with and I will tell you who you are?" and applying the latter to political elections, if we know the candidate's supporters, we should be able to have a good idea about how that candidate will govern. Take for instance Van Jones, Reverend Wright, the National Representative of the Nation of Islam's  Louis Farrakhan, the Reverend Al Sharpton,  terrorist William Charles " Bill" Ayers and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel all supporters of candidate Obama.  Should this not have been a good indicator, largely ignored, of the contents of the now Presidential Book?

In this context, we provide you with the 2010 Union Voting Guide - Use at Your Own Peril.  The caveat is largely supported by  President Reagan's Ultimatum to the Union, which in essence asserts that public sector organized labor is an anachronism in the 21st Century and an Albatross hanging over the US Economy and its ability to compete in a global economy.  In other words, if you want elected politicians to fight the Evil Twins: California's Triple Threat (Unions, Lobbyists and Parasitic Bureaucracies) and the the US Economic Triple Constraints  ( Card Check, Health Care Reform and Cap & Trade) vote the opposite of a Union Vote:

THE FORUM: Vote "Yes" for 23; support jobs

The California Air Resources Board acknowledges that "no direct public health impacts" are expected from Prop 23. The proposition delays control of greenhouse gas emissions, implicated in global warming.
