Sailing Full Speed Toward Icebergs

Democrat/Socialists, intent upon thrashing the business community in the name of socialistic equality of income and wealth, are racing full speed ahead in the foggy dark, confident that they know this time how to avoid collision with economic icebergs.

Liquidating Jobs

Obama campaigned on, among things, the charge that Romney was guilty of outsourcing jobs to overseas locations.  Needless to say, Obama never mentioned that the collapse of the auto business (which he claimed to have saved), and so many other formerly dominant industries, was in major part due to confiscatory demands and intransigence of labor unions.

Labor unions are both icons of liberal-progressive-socialism, presumably Marx’s proletarian masses, and legally sanctioned perpetrators of extortion, enforced with physical violence.  Having pushed state and city governments to the edge of bankruptcy, unions now are back at their old stand: obliterating private businesses.  And Obama will do all in his power to accommodate them by pushing for the end of secret ballots in unionizing campaigns and other labor union wish-list items.

The Irving, Texas-based company said the liquidation would mean that most of its 18,500 employees would lose their jobs.
