    Still Flyin' - Labor, Lamebrains and Lib-tards

    in Politics

    So Labor Day has come and gone. One of many federal holidays, that which is the lowest of the low; a pathetic excuse to have a barbecue, get lit, then talk trash about those who don't share the views of organized labor. The Verizon vs IBEW/ CWA/ SEIU folks still at it, as are the Wisconsin Teachers' Union and their ilk (the one who had to bus in OUT OF STATE folk to help do their dirty work. The same WHINERS who wanted recall elections, which then (Thanks mainly to David & Charles) BACKFIRED! Topping it off, Ford truck plant's UAW already agreed to strike if no contract agreement is signed -- over TWO WEEKS PRIOR.

    The Professional Left are still up to their usual 'cover' routine.  Yet the fundamentally moronic gaffes committed by those whom they fervently support "don't count." Just another example of how they like to play the Critical Theory vs Critical Thinking (or Logic, as some have called it), yet spin and then minimalize or just plain denegrate whenever possible.

    There are some situations that are downplayed to the max. Dr. King's daughter Bernice said Lincoln signed what....?!? Indiana Rep Andre Carson (D) playing the race card YET AGAIN. These are some of the recent stories discussed on the Still Flyin' Over the Heartland Show.

    So ladies & menfolk... sit down, strap in & HOLD ON!

    (Note the similar theme shown of how the Verizon/Wisconsin Teachers' Union are quite similar; both involve a similar imagery [i.e. COMMUNIST icons], plus an overly large contingent of folk [i.e. those you couldn't get around if they were 4 abreast on their way to the Golden Corral buffet] on the picket line. Y'know, the type Marie Antoin, er... Michelle Obama doesn't like.)
