do you even read your own links? The article talks about people wanting change. Trump is changing things and your party is lost in the wind.
Lots has changed since that election. Tax cuts, manufacturing jobs growth, etc.
try to play along.

I was Union for 36 years, I voted Democrap twice for the POTUS.  Never ever again and I know lots of Union people that can't support that platform, not into bestiality and Planned Parenthood

But do you still do the door to door political pamphlet distribution as required by the union? Or do you just dump them in a trashcan, and hit the nearest bar like the rest of the union "workers"? Sorry, I deer hunt with a bunch of former IBEW guys, and they absolutely hate Democrats, and the unions that support them. On the other hand, they get their retirement checks from 3 different union entities. Wonder how much money the DNC skimmed off of that retirement fund?

Turtle, do you have any thoughts for people that work in right to work states? Some people go through their whole adult lives making a good living based on their ability to provide an employer a high level skill. They don't need a union boss. They have a set of skills that employers are willing to pay a premium for. They don't need a union, more likely, they are being courted by head hunters that are shopping their skills to other potential employers. What F'd up world of doom and misery do you live in?

Reminds of those mines that gave the workers housing and sold food out of the company store but never paid them enough to get out of debt for those things. People of course had to 'love' their boss.

Yep, sucking up to the corporate patron, drumpf. Hoping he hands out crumbs.


Just another unhinged incoherent post from the man hater Twerp.

Republicans love the working man.  They want him to keep more of his check.  So he can raise his family, feed them, get them good educations.   

That is how it has been in America for many years.

This won't be the first or last time that we have discussed this issue.  I've never had a door to door requirement, must be an IBEW thang

I walked informational pickets vs. GTE and Verizon.  I walked an active picket with UPS workers during their 1997 strike, in solidarity.  My retirement checks don't come from the Union, the pension I grew had nothing to do with my Union, not IBEW but CWA.  "The Union" is what individuals make it.  I was somewhat pleased when "the union" supported Bernie Sanders over the bloody pantsuit in 2016, I still voted for Drumpf like your IBEW fellow hunters. 

Maybe they "hate" their former union out of support for you.  If they hated during their working years then they could have declined membership and opted out of their Union benefits provided by their contract.  If they are ex-management or ex-craft says a lot where their hate came from.  It's a tough world for unions in a right-to-work state, I reserved my "hate" for the scabs that benefited from my contract that didn't pay dues while I did.  I pretty much loved my free medical insurance for my first 25 years and my 5 weeks vacation + 7 personal days [after 25 years] that my union and I bargained for.  I enjoyed the .88 on the dollar company match 401K. The days of unions may indeed be done, some unions decided to kill the goose that layed the golden eggs and some unions elected the wrong people at the top, they did it to themselves.

Oh, they hated the union, but loved the benefits for sure. They hated having to go door to door handing out voters guides. They hated not being able to get rid of bad employees, having a contract define and micro manage the scope of work on a project. They hated having a required number of higher paid journeyman to apprentices, that put their ability to compete for contracts at a disadvantage.

Whats a union boss? Well, it's not a shop steward, or a representative or president of your local. Lets say a union boss would be somewhere between Hoffa, and Obama.

Sounds like IBEW ain't what they project to the public.  Never heard any of that with CWA except getting rid of bad employees, I stepped down from leadership roles for that reason.  I didn't want to be the safety net for slugs, I hate slugs

Well the left is telling us we need to take guidance from the HS chirren so why not elementary kids as well. Makes perfect sense. Young children are emotional and incapabale of rational thought, often throwing tantrums to try and get their way.
Oh wait. The left has been taking guidance from elementary age kids

The seahawks were miserable with this crap.  They finally wised up and let the main purveyors.  When I seen the run over and sit down, just because a vet was getting recognized for valor, it was obvious what was going on.  Despite dewfreshplooeey claims otherwise, it is 100% about pissing on our Army, and our nation.  

I hope those loser players fully sh1ttank their new teams.

Here is another problem for the Democrats.  As long as Maxine Waters, a Democrat, keeps getting elected to Congress, the Democrats should have nothing to say about Republicans.  Here is her latest gem.

[Jy4zSIar_bigger]
Maxine Waters
 
@RepMaxineWaters
 
 

Trump, further isolating the United States, thinks he knows better than our negotiators and all of our global allies who agreed to the Iran deal. How long do we have to suffer his gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior? Impeachment is the only answer.

So Maxine thinks Trump should be impeached for negating Obama's deal.  What she doesn't understand is that because Obama signed that deal without Congressional approval, it had no binding impact on the US.  Obama is now learning that when you have a pen and you're going to use it, so is your successor.

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/06/06/democrats-it-scandal-set-to-explode-with-possible-plea-deal.html



The curious case of Imran Awan, which sounds like an international spy thriller, is entering its third act. Awan was a congressional IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer.

Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. A plea agreement hearing is set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Alleged theft of congressional equipment, massive data breaches of Congress members’ emails, likely espionage and more are all wrapped up in this case that involves data from 40 or more Democratic members of Congress.

Sources tell me that the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has been looking into this matter since well before Awan and his crew of Pakistani congressional IT aides were booted off the House computer network in February 2017.

Sources also say that investigators were particularly interested in whether anyone else in the congressional offices that all of these IT aides worked for was involved in alleged improper activity. This might include Rep. Wasserman Schultz, who was the Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair when she employed Awan. It might also include former Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., who employed Awan when Becerra was chairman of the House Democratic Caucus. Becerra is now California attorney general.

“The House Office of Inspector General tracked the Awans network usage and found that a massive amount of data was flowing from the (congressional) networks,” said Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa. “Over 5,700 logins by the five Awan associates were discovered on a single server within the House, the server of the Democratic Caucus Chairman, then Rep. Xavier Becerra of California. Up to 40 or more members of Congress had all of their data moved out their office servers and onto the Becerra server without their knowledge or consent.”

Becerra left Congress in January 2017. Before he left, Capitol Police wanted a copy of the caucus server’s contents.

Becerra presumably told Imran Awan that Capitol Police wanted a copy of the server. What is known is that Awan did produce a copy of a server’s data for Capitol Police; however, after taking a look at the data they were provided, Capitol Police determined they were given a copy of data from some other server instead.

“Capitol Police found that the image (the copy of the server contents) they were supplied was false,” said Rep. Perry, quoting a report from the House Office of Inspector General.

So the Awans had access to – in fact, were copying – all the emails, personal schedules and other data from the Democrats they worked for to this server and, according to other reports, a Dropbox account.

Imran Awan was also going back to Pakistan for long stays and, in fact, at times worked remotely from Pakistan. This is where the case leads to possible espionage.

Meanwhile, court hearings on the alleged bank fraud Imran Awan and Hina Alvi have been charged with have been delayed again and again. The last hearing took place in October 2017.

The delays came as Department of Justice prosecutors and defense attorneys have been fighting it out over a laptop found in a cubbyhole (what was once a phone booth) in congressional office building that has the username “REPDWS” (a computer used by Imran Awan that is the property of Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s office).

What’s on this computer we can only surmise, but it is clear that Wasserman Schultz wants the evidence kept out of court. She even publicly threatened the chief of the Capitol Police with “consequences” if the laptop wasn’t returned.

Meanwhile, a House Office of Inspector General investigation determined that Awan and his crew (none of whom underwent background checks to gain the IT positions they held in Congress) committed numerous violations of House security policies.

There is a lot more to come from this explosive case. Before this plea agreement hearing was set the biggest worry was that the government’s odd failure to prosecute Awan for alleged thefts of government equipment (some of which were found in a garage of one of Awan’s rental properties) and the many alleged national security violations pointed to a political cover-up.

Now it appears the plot is set for a riveting climax.

Of all the Democrats out in the public arena, DWS may be the most despicable of all of them.  She's a bully and an unbelievably partisan hack.  How she rose up through the ranks of the Democrat Party is both a mystery and a testament to the weakness of that party's bench.

Dems were trying to do a quick bury of this story back when it was playing out. 

Some indications that DwS was covering tracks for Awans high speed departure to Pakistan.

That battle over that DWS/Awan laptop has been epic.  

Funny how dems are so fast to try and redirect blame to Russians for hacking their systems.  They have zero discipline.  Just raping anyone and everyone.  Then when it comes back to bite them, someone else's fault.

When American citizens break the law and are sent to jail they get separated from their kids as well. If it’s a single parent the kids become wards of the State. Once again the Dems think illegals should be treated better than Americans
