Union Head Admits Mistakes

In the interview, King twice said it is "accurate" to say Gov. Rick Snyder explicitly warned him that Republicans in the Legislature likely would push right-to-work legislation in the lame-duck session if labor ignored the GOP majority in both houses, pressed ahead and filed petitions to place Proposal 2 on the November ballot.

Flint — A historic site marker noting the sit-down strike in 1936-37 by General Motors hourly workers in Flint has been vandalized.
The Flint Journal reports green paint was found this week covering the gold letters on both sides of the marker. Some of the paint seeped on the bricks below the plaque. The marker is located on the campus of Kettering University.
A report was filed with Flint police.
David White, the president of the Genesee County Historical Society and director of archives at Kettering, said he noticed the damage on Tuesday morning. The marker previously has been vandalized. White says in 2010 someone put an asphalt sealer on both sides.

I've heard that it was union people who actually damaged this marker in an attempt to bring scorn on right wing zealots and Koch brother supporters. AFP personnel warned them that the marker would be damaged by paint but they poured it over the marker anyway. Others say the marker was in the wrong spot and should not have been that close to the site of the actual strike as it only serves to antagonize people. Main stream media is trumpeting this story constantly in the Detroit Free Press and other outlets, Fox news typically silent on this of course.

Global Union Federation, aka worldwide communism.

You see it in our politics with the president pitting the haves vs the have nots. Painting the picture of Capitalism as a scourge on the world.

The continued spread of socialism and communism coupled with the reformation of the US through expanded social programs and an overall dumbing down of the populous with inferior education and the promise of everything for free; coupled with giving up Constitutional rights in the guise of protection, opens the door for the transformation of the country and the death of the US as we now know it. The glorious communist promise starts out this way and ends in tragedy as history repeatedly tells us.
