    Card check failed in Congress. Another end around from a regime that doesn't give a rat's ass about representative government.

    Fuck Anyone that can't handle a Secret Ballot. It sounds like the NLRB needs to be investigated. Maybe we need to Remove Union's from Government totally.

    The NLRB is essentially "pro bono" counsel for the unions. Most of them don't know shit from Shinola when it comes to labor laws. I've seen many, many times when defense counsel (for companies, at company expense) make absolute fools of NLRB lawyers - and win their defense cases for their clients.

    Maybe the NLRB needs to start paying for It's own stupidity in Court Costs, as in Total Court cost's.

    unfortunately they know a great deal, one recess appt. that drew ire from both sides of the aisle was...


    "This recess appointment disregards the Senate's bipartisan rejection of Craig Becker's nomination to the NLRB," said Randel K. Johnson, the chamber's senior vice president of labor, immigration and employee benefits. "The business community should be on red alert for radical changes that could significantly impair the ability of America's job creators to compete."

    Obama announced Saturday that he will make recess appointments of 15 nominees to administration posts who are awaiting confirmation by the full Senate. None has generated nearly as much outcry as Becker.

    The Republican National Committee sent out a memo Saturday titled "Union Bosses' Bailout Begins -- Recess Appointment Of Becker Payback From Obama To His Union Paymasters, With More Job-Killing Bailouts To Come."

    Becker is currently a general counsel for the Service Employees International Union and for the AFL-CIO. He has taught at the law schools of the University of Chicago and Georgetown University, among other places.

    Business groups and Republicans say that Becker has voiced support for skirting Congress to enact so-called card-check legislation regarding labor unions. They say that he has proposed that the bill be enforced through federal regulators such as the NLRB.

    The card-check bill -- officially called the Employee Free Choice Act -- would allow employees at a workplace to join a union if a majority signed cards. Opponents say the system is undemocratic because it discourages secret ballot elections.

    On Thursday, all 41 Republican senators signed a letter urging Obama not to appoint Becker, saying it would "bypass the advice and consent traditions of the Senate."

    Senate Republicans, along with two Democrats, effectively blocked Becker's nomination on February 9.

    hes attempting to doe exactly what he said he would do....


    he'll fortunately be out as his recess appt. ends this month, UNLESS somehting very strange happens in the senate, which I doubt. But hes set this in motion. some issues in motion.
