Are strikes in France harbingers of things to come in the US?
You can bet your bottom dollar that SEIU leadership is taking notes on how to paralyze a country into submission, as is currently happening in France this date. The labor action, led by the Confederation Generale du Travail, is a textbook example of how to force an existing government towards the lines of a Communist ideal. Sort of a ‘strong nudge’ effect. The focus of this political tug of war are the people of France. It’s always the people (including those who work for the unions) that end up getting the shaft. There should be a national betting pool here on which European nation will fail first. The big question would then in what denominations they want to get paid?
Whatever happened to that Gulf oil spill thingy?
It’s almost as though it never happened. Poof, no spill! This seems to be the attitude of the government and media even though much of the damage done by the Deepwater Horizon is yet to be determined. (I’m guessing the damage done to the reefs will take a very long time to heal over). Well, at least the government had the sense to lift the oil moratorium. Why they imposed it in the first place is a puzzle to me. I mean what was really accomplished except that some platforms high tailed it down to Venezuela? Really! So much of what is happening on Capitol Hill is now beyond the keen of the average citizen and I guess that is really what troubles me.
Is the race for governor in New York a joke or what?
How about that debate that featured Paladino and Cuomo along with a ragtag line up of hairballs and fringe supporters? Hope everyone caught it. What a circus. Better than the Comedy Channel even! Now while Cuomo will win the race hands down, it was refreshing to see someone like Paladino putting his neck on the line. I actually like the man. The problem is only wise-guys, insiders and crooks have the ways and means of getting elected today. It’s a shame to because it will be ‘business as usual’ once the elections are over. Count on more crumbling infrastructure, bad service and incredible waste from the new bunch of clowns that will soon take or continue holding office. Even Kristin Davis of the Anti-Prohibition Party made a good point about how she ‘delivered on time and didn’t have to keep a second set of books’ when she ran a prostitute service. Some day, perhaps a few honest Americans will wise up, run for office and clean up the mess left by the convicts currently in office. Can’t happen too soon for me!
