Look for the union label

Knock your wife out, get the union to back you up. http://www.bcsn.tv/news_article/show/420465

something we can all get behind

All of us posting on Swampbubbles have varying opinions and sometimes argue(!) But here's something we might all be able to agree upon and get behind.

There's a little boy in Wisconsin (Beckett Roerdink) who was diagnosed with incurable cancer who will be celebrating his 4th birthday on September 17. He loves to get mail, so his Mom said it would be great if he could just get a bunch of cards in the mail. Even though your card might not arrive exactly on his birthday, please consider sending this boy a card. His address is below and a link to an article can be accessed by clicking on "Read More." Thanks!

That's our George

Think the growing number of post-trial Zimmerman incidents might cause his defenders to reconsider the frame of mind he was in the night he shot a teenager to death? Nah. To them he will always be a fine, upstanding man. Give that boy a gun and put him on the Ferguson police force!

Victory #2 for public employees

http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2014/09/teachers_win_union_refun...
COLUMBUS, Ohio—A statewide teachers' union will pay almost $92,000 to more than 2,800 Ohio teachers to resolve claims that union fees were illegally used for political work.

The payment, part of a settlement approved this week by a federal judge, comes after some teachers sued the Ohio Education Association and 11 affiliates contesting "fair-share" fees they had to pay between 2009 and 2013.

Move to amend has legs.....

... or at least that's what they tell me in their latest e mail. See besides daily talking points from Rove, Koch brothers, and Americans for Prosperity I also get daily e mails from MoveOn and Move To Amend which I guess makes me part of their groups also since I signed up for them just like Children Of Liberty.
But I digress. Here's what the latest e mail had to say in part- "Since September 2009 when we formed Move to Amend, on the eve of the infamous Supreme Court decision your support has grown this movement by leaps and bounds:

UT Professor doesn't practice what he preaches

Karl Rove will be speaking at the University of Toledo next week as part of its Jesup Scott Honors College Distinguished Lecture Series. UT’s College of Business sent out an email to its faculty and staff indicating it had nine tickets available to distribute.

Professor Dale Dwyer replied to everyone to whom the email was sent with the following:

No thanks. I have no interest in hearing that guy spew hate.

Interesting isn’t it? I guess Dwyer understands that he’s safe in sending a hateful response because it refers to a Republican.

Can you imagine what would have happened if Dwyer would have sent out the same response to an email about tickets to a speech by Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton? Al Gore?

And that’s just one part of the hypocrisy and irony of Dwyer’s email.

Driving tips

Before you strap yourself in, adjust the mirrors and start your automobile, make sure you are not carrying cash, have no energy drinks or air fresheners in the car and, most importantly, that you are white. Happy motoring!

Elizabeth Warren on Fighting Back Against Wall St. Giants

September 5, 2014

"In Oklahoma, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her brothers grew up in “an America that invested in kids like us and helped build a future where we could flourish.” But, as she writes in her memoir, A Fighting Chance, “Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

Public employees win one

Finally a victory for the hard working men and women of Michigan and possibly other states. http://www.freep.com/article/20140904/NEWS06/309040105/teachers-michigan...

Members of the Michigan Education Association should be able to resign from the union at any time, and not just during the month of August, an administrative law judge ruled this week.

Too many Blacks? Democrat Quinton Ross thinks so.......

Let me get this right, Dems wanted voting districts to include a certain number of blacks, white, hispanics, seniors, etc etc to make voting fair. Now there's a district that elects a Black rep each election and is now even bigger than before with more Blacks and they are screaming. Liberals make me laugh http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/09/01/supreme-court-red...

Please do not judge these kids.................

....by the color of their skin, but by their character. It's a total breakdown of parents and coaches when kids playing a sport that emphasises team work end up in a bench clearing brawl. They learn this from major league ballplayers, hockey players, and bowlers who exhibit the same behavior regularly.
