Bits and Pieces
Union thugs (IBEW) from NJ and NY have decided the people of those states should be powerless and possibly die to preserve their special status. Florida power crews were told to “pay dues or stay home”. Crews from Georgia were turned away in NY for refusing to join the union…. Here and Here…… Is it any wonder why unions are becoming so despised by the majority of Americans? So many people in so much pain and the IBEW is worried about who belongs to the union? How selfish and inhumane, how callous they are being.
Governor Christie had to step in and threaten to enact an emergency order to stop the union abuses.
He would use his emergency-management powers, he said, to guarantee that nonunion crews could help restore his state’s electricity grid without interference.
“I’ve been on the phone with PSE&G [Public Service Electric and Gas Company], JCP&L [Jersey Central Power & Light] and the union, and they’ve all absolutely promised me they would never turn away a single worker whether they were union or nonunion, and I wouldn’t allow it,” Christie told reporters shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.
“I would invoke my powers under the Disaster Control Act to prevent that from happening, but they’ve assured me we don’t have to.”
….”I will crawl over ground glass to vote for him.” YEP, remember politics is all about showing up. Don’t get cocky!
Endorsements galore…”for that other guy”, the one I will crawl across glass to vote for…
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was ambushed by angry constituents during a visit to one storm storm-ravaged neighborhood of the city on Saturday.
‘When are we going to get some f****** help?’ one woman demanded of the billionaire mayor.
After six days without power, some New Yorkers are losing their patience with the response from the city.
The mayor’s surprise visit to the Rockaway, Queens, which was flooded out by the storm and then decimated by horrific fires, was greeted by angry residents who said they were only now beginning to receive aid.
‘There’s old ladies in my building that don’t got nothing,’ one furious man told Bloomberg.
The exchange, which left the mayor at a loss for explanations, was captured by a NY 1 TV crew who happened to be in the neighborhood at the same time.
As you all know the Marathon was cancelled but, the residents are still very much up in arms. When will people realize big government can’t keep the promises they make. Video at the link, bottom of the page
In the past four years, we have changed. We once supported President Obama. Obama made many good promises. Obama seemed non-partisan and willing to bring about change. He was charismatic. We were excited to see what would come of his administration. Sadly, Obama has failed us, instituting policies that have negatively affected us.
Because of this, Students For Obama has become Students No Longer For Obama. We have awakened to the President’s failures, and we feel that it is time for a change. It’s time to allow someone else a chance in the Oval Office. Obama doesn’t deserve four more years of reckless behavior.
It’s almost over, our local stations are non-stop political ads, it’s close in OH or BO wouldn’t be coming here so many times in the next couple of days….keep the faith and remember there are many ways to win..
