Liberals sell out unions

Communism began in America with the unions.

Unions largely delivered on promises of higher wages for the working class in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The average pay for a Union Pacific Railroad work is $93,000 a year.

That's almost as good as the $108,538 a year that federal employees average.

But with communists, people are disposable. So it was with the workingman. In the 1970s, communists worked to shutter factories. Red China now dominates manufacturing from pencils to penicillin.

Of course, this puts America in peril.

On April 28, 2021, Market Watch reported, "Right now, the U.S. has virtually no capacity to manufacture antibiotics. That’s because Red China currently controls roughly 90% of the global supply of inputs needed to make the generic antibiotics that treat bronchitis, pneumonia, pediatric ear infections, and life-threatening conditions such as sepsis.

"At the peak of last year’s COVID-19 hospitalizations in the U.S., these generic antibiotics—including azithromycin—were urgently needed to treat secondary bacterial infections. However, the U.S. faced a potential shortage, since the key materials for azithromycin and other drugs are supplied by Red China."

So, we became dependent on Red China for drugs and Red China subsequently unleashed a manmade virus upon us. 

But American communists defend this as the free market at work. Never mind that Red China uses slave labor to run its factories

Of course, to ship goods from Red China to New York, you need railroads. And after a couple of years of working mandatory overtime and the like, railroad workers want some relief. They are threatening a strike.

In the old days, America's Marxists would rally behind them.

Not this time.

Biden and his Democrats passed a bill in the House that sided with the Snidely Whiplashes who run the railroads. Only 8 Democrats voted against the measure, which drew 79 Republican votes.

The Guardian reported, "Railroad workers have expressed dismay at Joe Biden’s proposed solution to a looming strike that threatens to derail the US economy, which they say belies his image as the most pro-union president in generations.

"As a December 9 deadline looms for the long-running labor dispute between the US’s largest railway companies and their unions, Biden has called on Congress to intervene and block a strike that could cost the US economy about $2 billion a day by some estimates."

(In a $20 trillion-a-year economy, $2 billion a day is negligible.)

The story said, "Union leaders are unhappy that Biden’s solution appears to be the imposition of a settlement reached in September that has already been rejected by many for failing to address members’ concerns about pay, sick days, staff shortages and time off." 

I am sorry, but I cannot find in the Constitution where it says Congress shall set wages and time off for workers. Then again, I cannot find in the Constitution justification for 90% of what Congress does. We would be better off if Congress just named post offices and defended our border.

Biden stuck his nose in the railroad negotiations three months ago.

Kevin McCarthy told CNN, "First Biden told us that inflation was transitory, it wasn’t. He told us immigration was seasonal and it wasn’t. He told us Afghanistan wouldn’t collapse to the Taliban. Then he told us in September that this deal was all worked out. Now he wants the government to go into this? I just think it’s another - it’s another sign of why the economy is weak under this Biden administration."

That Biden sided with the company instead of the workers is understandable. Communists wrung everything they could out of the workingman. The communists move on to another group. LGBT-ers should take this as a warning.

They won't.

  2. Big deal. Liberals have been screwing unions for years. Union leaders have been screwing rank and file workers almost as long.

    But Republicans...
    They make liberals look like wanking amateurs.
    They're going to screw the whole country.

  3. It is a big deal. The rank and file do not necessarily walk in lockstep with union leaders. When anyone deliberately mistreats workers, whether union leaders, political leaders, or government hacks, they should be held to account.

    2. Spattered thruout every blog's comment sections are always these fishers for men, baiting their hooks with questions all composed to lure in the feeble minded.

      To what purpose, what result, what intended goal?

      Ask those being held captive by them, for taking the bait, getting hooked and reeled in, for the faked 'insurrection' event.

  4. I am very disturbed with this. This is the Establishment sticking it to Hillarie's deplorables. I have negotiated several agreements from the management side. Just sickening.

  12. Comminism did not begin in America with labor unions.

    Labor unions were, and are, the result of business exploiting it's vital labor in every which way business can.

    This business view of labor as merely another cost, that dimnishes profit, is the source of business that depreciate the value of labor, by whatever means neccesssry.

    Including importing labor illegally, legally, and exporting American jobs to, as an example, communist china, amongst many others.

    To tout this point of view on unions is in conflict with MAGA.

    Unions have been infiltrated by communists, racketeers, grifter politicians, uniparty instigators, etc., for decades.

    Those to whom business is as god play this game, of falsely accusing the very concept of union bargaining for their membership being a communistic activity inherent.

    The stronger a union is, the more this nonsense is touted by business.

    This current summoning of the wrath of government, to do the dirty work for business, is merely an example of grifter government's involvement in enforcing the will of business.

    The essence of all of this is greed.

    Union workers are not greedy.

    They do the work that makes the capitol of business worth anything, other than pieces of paper.

    Capitol has, in and of itself, no potency whatsoever.

    Capitol, however abundant, requires people, workers, both as producers and consumers, to have any value at all.

    Business can squat atop it's mountain of wealth, but, without people, workers, as both producers and consumers, business cannot even wipe it's ass with all that wealth.

    Your visual acuity, surber, as it often is, is feeble.

    You cannot see the forest, as you focus on the trees.

  13. Well, you’re right EXCEPT Unions are too just as greedy, which has only served to discredit their espoused credo of protecting workers.
    Unions came about as a natural reaction to enormous and egregious abuses of workers during the Industrial Revolution: sweat shops, filthy working conditions, inhuman hours, etc., by greedy management.
    But once politics got its paws on those Unions, they too became exploited for the potential influence of their membership in political machinations.
    But there had to be trade-off if they Union bosses were going to sell out the workers: more, more, more.
    So they became no better than the greedy management they were purportedly fighting: just as greedy.
    Our Founders always said that if this Republic was going to have a chance of succeeding, it would require a people of virtue and morality.
    Looks like greed won the day.

    1. Not just as greedy.

      Labor does the work.

      Even some managers do the work.

      Upper level management counts the beans and, to them, more beans are never enough.

      So, upper level managements seek to increase their share of the beans by decreasing the labor's share of the beans.

      The labor who make the beans possible, by doing the work.

      Increase the attractiveness of the products.

      Increase the desirability of the products.

      Improve the quality of the products.

      So, don't play the game of increasing profits by decreasing labor costs.

      Cut your own upper management comps before the workers.

      The workers earn their daily wages. Honestly. By working. Producing. Making things that all of your capitol cannot do squat to make, only labor makes, produces, provides products and services.

      Imagine what a pimp would have, without workers to do the work.

      Pimp would have to pimp their own holes......

  15. yor 90% figure is off. It's more like 98%+. Almost everything FedGov does is illegal as the constitution does not empower them to do it. That includes almost all domestic activity. The states established FedGov to handle regulation of interstate commerce, foreign relations and war. Almost nothing Congress produces is pursuant to the Constitution.
