    Widespread strikes by militant trade unions, including garbage collectors and miners, during the late 1970s crippled Great Britain's economy and led to Margaret Thatcher's election.Britain's economy nearly came to a standstill in the late 1970s as a result of a contagion known as the British disease -- endless work stoppages, slowdowns and strikes called by militant trade unions. Company owners and managers had to secure prior approval from union bosses before carrying out even the most routine workplace tasks. As a result, productivity plummeted, and exports of once-popular British products like cars and motorcycles dropped sharply or disappeared entirely. Economic growth stagnated, investors fled overseas, and the country's standard of living declined. The fever was broken only after voters awarded Margaret Thatcher with a massive Tory landslide in 1979. She then "broke" the unions during the ensuing miners strike, enabling her to push major reforms through Parliament, including new limits on trade unionism and its power in the management of British firms.

    Sadly, an executive order signed by President Obama in 2009 has injected a massive dose of the British disease into the daily operation of the federal government. Executive Order 13522 is innocuously titled "Creating Labor-Management Forums to Improve Delivery of Government Services." The reality is that the only thing improved will be the ability of federal employee union bosses to tell managers of government departments and agencies what they can and cannot do. What makes this an even more extraordinary turn of events, however, is the fact the Obama administration has empowered union bosses to exercise this new power behind closed doors without fear of exposure via the Freedom of Information Act.

    Sorry Stephunny. You are an idiot and a liar. I defy you to find one post in my excess of 10,000 where I support an Obama policy. Let me make it easy for you. There isn't one. I would tell ya to go fuck yourself but that's SOP for you.

    That sure was a smawt reply Stephunny. That was really some unbreakable proof that I support Obama. I support the office moran. Obama has not lied us into any wars and he seems to be guiding us back on track from the shitstorm economic mess that Bush left him. I don't think he has done anything great. I don't think he has done any harm. He has not found Osama Bin Ladin ... That is a big disappointment.

    Nice? I don't suffer fools, idiots and liars of which you are all three.

    I have several computers ...a couple with wifi. It is easy for me to get online. I am my own boss so there is no conflict. If you don't like my posts..don't read them.
