That got me thinking

The UAW supports.....the UAW

My Brother-in-Blog's previous post is spot on. It illustrates yet another glaring inconsistancy in the way the UAW (and unions in general) goes about their business.

The UAW responded to the change of policy in a statement:

"While the reservists certainly have the right to drive non-union made vehicles and display bumper stickers touting the most anti-worker, anti-union president since the 1920s, that doesn't mean they have the right to park in a lot owned by the members of the UAW," according to the statement.


I'd like to see their "evidence" that GWB is the ".....most anti-worker, anti-union president since the 1920s.....". All the current economic issues that the UAW is wont to bitch about, China / India / Mexico / out-sourcing et al., imports, etc. are a direct result of the policies of the 42nd President, one billy jeff blythe clinton. NAFTA, GATT, China's MFN trade designation all where spawned during the eight year malaise of the previous administration.

As for the "anti-union" part, he's got my vote. But you knew that. Note to self: do a big post on how much unions apply suction. And you thought my flatulent fcuktard and ab0rtion posts were long.....

Now, it is my long standing policy to seek congruence between the news of the day and my core beliefs, so here's where I have to come down on this one:

While the UAW is, in general, a sorry collection of wankers, they have the Constitutional right of (sing along, you know the words) Freedom of Association that allows them to decide who can use their parking lot. The same protection that allows Augusta National to exclude women as members; that lets Target boot the Salvation Army off their doorstep; and lets the Boy Scouts exclude those who choose to practice a homosexual lifestyle from being troop leaders; also applies here. Yeah, it's distasteful having to side with the Usually Ain't Working, and I'm going to have to take a long hot shower as soon as I log off, but it is what it is.

I take a small modicum of comfort in knowing that this episode is just another in a long series of the left and their constituants proving beyond a shadow of a doubt just how far out of touch with reality and the rest of Silent America they really are.

Elsewhere:

Raging_Dave over at the indespensible Four Right Wing Wackos has an outstanding post on our favorite commodity: oil. Read and be enlightened. I can't believe that this post has been out there since Wednesday and I haven't linked to it before now. My bad. Dave puts two in the center of body mass and one to the head with his eloquent and succinct post.
