It would appear so. Or they just don't like the topic of the editorial cartoon. Of course that never stopped some before so maybe it's just a case of Spring Fever. LOL
Shammie, let me see if I have this straight. IF, big IF, VW ignores election and goes with UAW, that's ok with you? Would it have been OK by you if UAW had won and VW set aside the election? Huh?"
Let me see if I can make this straight for you. IF big IF, Haslam, Corker, Watson and all the rest of the gang had kept their threats and anti-union tactics out of the vote and it had been a FAIR VOTE WITHOUT ANY OUTSIDE INFLUENCE OR THREATS then this would have all been settled by now and it WOULD NOT MATTER WHICH WAY THE VOTE WENT BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A FAIR VOTE WITHOUT COERCION FROM EITHER SIDE.
HOWEVER, THAT DUMBA*S BUNCH CHOSE NOT TO DO THAT INSTEAD THEY CHOSE TO TRY TO PLAY HARDBALL WITH VW. THEY DANGLED A $300 MILLION DOLLAR PACKAGE OF ADDITIONAL INCENTIVES IN FRONT OF VW TO GET THE WORKERS TO VOTE AGAINST THE UAW. Not by any stretch of the imagination was that not coercion.
Bo "Scopes Monkey Trial" Watson knows there is a legal term known as THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY. Something he should have been taught his first year of law school but evidently he went to sleep that day or skipped that day. Which very SIMPLY STATED IS THIS: WHETHER OR NOT SOMETHING IS LEGAL OR ILLEGAL IF IT GIVES THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY IT CAN BE QUESTIONED. So, even if the $300 Million offer of incentives was legal, it gave the APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY. THAT IS WHY THE ELECTION WILL PROBABLY BE OVERTURNED AND IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN EVEN CONSIDERED HAD THAT IGNORANT BUNCH ALLOWED THE WORKERS TO CHOOSE ON THEIR OWN WITHOUT THE INTERFERENCE FROM THE MONEY CHANGERS. Maybe you can understand now?
So Shammie, now you're not for collective bargaining, huh?"
Not sure how you arrived at that conclusion or for that matter any mention about collective bargaining. If Corker, Haslam and the rest had kept out of the whole process before the vote then this would have all been settled by now. But they chose the LOW ROAD and now they have brought NATIONAL ATTENTION to what should have been a LOCAL matter. They wanted to play hardball with VW. VW will still get the last laugh when it's all said and done and there won't be jack they can do about it. LOL
And now for a pause from our regularly scheduled debate: Looks like rumors are beginning to fly over a possible move by VW in the upcoming UAW Appeal. The Anti-Union faction has started a rumor that VW is considering throwing out the results of the "election" in February and going with the UAW after all. If true then Flying J Haslam, Bob "Nissan Corker, Bo "Scopes Monkey Trial" Watson, Gerald "We're Large and In Charge" McCormick and all the rest of the "money changers" are in for a bumpy ride. LOL
Ibeshamed, how about you? You changing any minds? Toon boy needs some new material, bring it"
No, never thought about changing any minds. Again, Don't worry in just a few short weeks Mr. Bennett is going to have PLENTY of new material courtesy of Flying J. Haslam, Bob 'Nissan' Corker, Bo 'Scopes Monkey Trial' Watson, Gerald 'We're large and in charge' McCormick and all the rest of the "money changers." LOL
Sad how most any toon on here morphs into the same old same old. Same old people saying the same old shiznit and changing no minds"
Do you believe any of your comments change minds? Conman makes everything about his psuedo faith. Zab.aka Woodstock; Toes aka Peppermint Patty; Maximus aka phony; and several more all want to blame President Obama for everything bad that happens anywhere in the universe. You are their main cheerleader. So what exactly are you complaining about?
Don't worry though in just a few short weeks there will be plenty for Mr. Bennett to draw and plenty for all to make comments on and you can sit back and pop off all the one liners you can think of. Flying J. Haslam and Bob "Nissan" Corker are about to give Mr. Bennett another shot at the Pulitzer when the news reels began to flow around the upcoming investigations into the offer of over $300 million taxpayer dollars to keep the UAW out of VW.
Lt. Governor Ron "Obama supports Al Qaeda" Ramsey has said it's silly to think the Republican Controlled General Assembly is going to open an investigation into this matter. That's ok Mr. Ron "Obama supports Al Qaeda" Ramsey, you won't have to open one up. Bob "Nissan" Corker is a member of the United States Senate(Currently controlled by Democrats) and they can start an ethics investigation of his actions.
Yep, Mr. Bennett is going to have enough material out of this upcoming fiasco to at the very least get nominated for an 8th or 9th time for a Pulitzer. And definitely more than enough to keep the nutjobs climbing the walls. LOL
Of course, VW gets the last laugh in all of this. With just one announcement Corker, Haslam, Watson and all the rest of that bunch can be redeemed.
And now for a brief pause from our regularly scheduled debate: Scientific Data vs Fantasy.
Looks like "the Establishment" wing of the GOP has adopted an old school song for the Teabaggers in their party. 'Let's Just Kiss and Say Goodbye' LOL
Establishment GOPers Dancing On Graves Of Flailing Tea Party Campaigns
"Amid recent allegations of tea partiers caught rubbing elbows with white supremacists and cock fighters, mainstream Republicans are having a hard time containing their exuberance over the struggling tea party challenger campaigns.
After TPM reported on Thursday that state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-MS) backed out of headlining a gun rights rally thanks to attention on a vendor with questionable views on racial segregation, CNN Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp tweeted McDaniel was an "ass" for agreeing to attend in the first place.
Sorry, you get no credit for dropping out of white nationalist event you agreed to keynote. Ass.
— S.E. Cupp (@secupp) April 3, 2014*
*"When you lie down with dogs, you get fleas," Republican strategist John Feehery told TPM in an email."This is the problem with the tea party and their candidates. They lack judgement and that lack of judgement makes them poor general election candidates."
The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC), which has done some of the most heated battling with the outside groups that support McDaniel, quickly took to twitter to attack McDaniel over the episode.
Candidates who associate with white nationalists & segregationists events give away #GOP seats to Democrats. #MSsen
— Brad Dayspring (@BDayspring) April 3, 2014
Mississippi Republican Party chair Joe Nosef urged McDaniel to clarify whether he supports groups that promote the confederacy and segregation.
Brian Walsh, a former NRSC communications director and vocal critic of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said that McDaniel's decision to pull out of the event when he did didn't "smell right."
"It just doesn't necessarily smell right that he disavowed it after it became public," Walsh told TPM. "These are the sorts of issues that Democrats would have a field day in the general election. And it's the type of thing that cost us winnable seats in the last couple of cycles."
McDaniel wasn't the only tea party candidate who goofed recently. Over the weekend Matt Bevin, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) tea party primary challenger, ended up speaking at a rally for supporters of legal cockfighting. Bevin said he didn't know the rally was about cockfighting but both McConnell campaign staffers and other prominent Republicans are skeptical.
"I don't know how you accidentally stumble into a cockfighting rally," MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Thursday morning.
As stated earlier. Enforce the law that is now on the books. Like many laws the fed enforces them selectively........
What is Alexander doing other than campaigning?"
He's got to make it look like he's doing something for Tennessee. LOL
From the "Peanuts" Gallery:
"TOES02800 said...aka Peppermint Patty
Hillary turned her blind eye towards her husbands war on women"
So since she didn't divorce her husband she supposedly turned her blind eye to his promiscuous behavior and this of course is based on your FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE INSIDE THE CLINTON MARRIAGE, RIGHT? Since all of Clinton's affairs were with willing participants would you have felt better if Hillary had been publicly denounced by her husband as did Mark Sanford, (the former Republican Governor of South Carolina) as he professed the love of his life was the woman who had so willingly entered into an affair with him?
And for more words of wisdom from the "Peanuts" Gallery we have this:
"zableedofisterix said...aka Woodstock
Astounding how a woman would vote for her, or her husband."
Astounding how you would blame the wife for something the husband did with women who were willing participants.
IF Hillary decides to run in 2016, it will be interesting to watch teabaggers, nutjobs and Repubs try to say she declared war on women because she didn't divorce her husband. LOL
I dealt with ignorance like ConMan's all my young life growing up Catholic here in the South. So-called "Christians" telling me I wasn't one of them because Catholics "Worship Mary" and because "Catholics don't get saved". Even when I explained that our beliefs were almost identical, it did not matter. I'll tell you, for a group of people that are so "loving and accepting", they sure know how to make a person feel like an outsider.
People like ConMan, who claim to be the most devout Christians, are probably more responsible for driving people away from Christianity more than any other source. They treat it like an exclusive club."
Been there done that. It was even worse if one attended a Catholic School where the majority of the teachers were nuns and priests. Of course, according to those good "Christians" the Nuns and Priests did not teach but instead spent their time indoctrinating the students. Too bad my chemistry and geometry teachers didn't understand that was their job description. LOL
I've always said people like Con-man drive more people away from religion than they draw people to religion.
