Nikki should talk positive. Tell the Unions that they have a 'good' home in Detroit and in NY. Just stay out of the rest of the country!

The Lesson of Dunkirk

I may be repeating myself , but Dunkirk was not a 'military' victory. It was a propaganda victory. The rescued British army was an army in name only. When they returned to England they had no equipment to speak of. With all due respect to the bravery demonstrated by the English, that any troops returned to England was a message about the sheer stupidity of Hitler and the Germans. But perhaps the RNC should be looking at the Battle of Midway. Five major Japanese aircraft carriers totally destroyed by two and a half US carriers. Those Japanese carriers had the suport of a major Japanese fleet which included battleships, cruisers and destroyers. The Us fleet had a rather minor escort of cruisers and a few destroyers. Not a single battleship. The result? The end of Japanese offensive action in the Pacific.
While there were, past tense, reasons for unions in the private sector; there has NEVER been a justification for unions in the public sector. In fact, unions in the public sector should be totally banned.
Would be difficult to list all the individuals for their acts of humanity, but I do believe that the commercial establishments do deserve at least an Honorable Mention by name. I did read about Chick-fil-A, and their personal distribution of 200 bags of sandwiches, but that was on another blog.
Michelle Malkin could have been constructive, and offer some corrective actions. 1. Lower the number that qualifies for poverty status, thereby improving the effect of the stimulus.Fewer would rate as 'poor'. And if one includes food stamps and other entitlements as income, then almost nobody will be 'poor'.Even better would be to use UN yardsticks for 'poor', in that case many of our 'poor' would classify as 'rich'. 2. Re-classify what constitutes the 'work force'. Anyone over 60 years of age no longer counts. Thereby the percentage of employed workers will increase. At the same time, raise the minimum age. 3. The Federal government needs to 'nationalize' more industries. The first should be the broom industry. And immediately apply its output to the unemployed in the workforce.SEIU would be glad to help in recruitment, especially since those would be subject to new Federal minimum wage dictates. Figures do not Lie, but Liars figure. The new mantra that has been fully implemented.
What are the odds that Jannie L. Blackwell is a BLACK, Democrat?
The good side is that it leaves more room for criminal trespassers to come for work. Illegal immigrants is now a no-no phrase.
In Washington, DC the Metro Gestapo would be arresting her.

A few words about 'Savings Bonds'. They began as a way to help finance our participation in WWI and WWII. A patriotic way to help. But then they morphed. For several years, every Federal employee was pressured into purchasing them automatically. Of course most complied. But would then, just as 'automatically', would redeem them at the earliest opportunity. Fot they were not worthy of the term 'investment', although their interest rate was nearly that of a bank account. Both of course were guaranteed to decrease their value due to taxes, and that insiduous tax called (guaranteed) inflation.. Many would give a Savings Bond as a gift for celebration of a birth or other event. It was a 'cheap' gift, for a $25 bond only cost the donor $18.75. I wonder how many resipients held them to maturity.

yes, I object to showing identification when I vote. I also object to showing ID when I purchase anything, especially my liquor and cigarettes, or when boarding an airplane, or to drive a car, or to go to the emergency room at a hospital,or to apply for employment. In fact, I wish to remain totally anonymous, and while a habib is for the other sex, I may take to wearing a ski mask at all times.
