    So here we go again.

    It isn’t often that Rush Limbaugh and the Washington Post agree that a leftwing policy is a bad, deal but they’re agreeing on this.

    What do you think? Do you see a problem with the Federal Government FORCING the states to let employees unionize in a one-size-fits-all manner? Ya’ll all okay with your state maybe raising taxes a whole big bunch to finance that?

    Since everybody doesn’t have a WAPO subscription, I’ve pulled the excerpt of the Post editorial posted on the National Right to Work website.

    Rush focuses on ‘moronic Republicans’ who support this:

    where is the actual 'editorial'?

    i'm afraid i'll pass on the spin given by the 'national right to work' committee.

    What I posted IS the editorial, or at least as much of it as they posted.

    I'll see if it's still available on the WAPO site though because I do have a subscription.

    Okay, here's the link to the Post which is identical to what I posted. I can't post any more of it though without violating USMB's copyright policy, so those who aren't subscribers may have to register. Or possibly not.

    This is nothing more than the Democrats paying of the corporations who own them, unions.

    So what do you think? Good thing? Bad thing?

    Is it worth keeping score about when it comes time to vote in November?

    I think you have to be beyond stupid to think Limbaugh is 'feeding us anything', especially when he and the Washington Post are on the same page. You probably missed the part that he was most upset that six Republicans were supporting this policy.

    Or do you feel anybody is beyond stupid to read the Washington Post?

    If so, what do you consider a reliable source to go to for your news? Inquiring minds want to know.

    It is beyond stupid not to know that the Washington Post's Op-Ed and Editorial pages are extremely right leaning!!!

    And it would take somebody pretty ignorant to believe most of those headlines Salon featured are supportive of rightwing policies. :)

    So again, if the Washington Post is a rabid rightwing publication, what DO you consider a reliable source for your news?

    And how did you vote in the above poll?
