Labor Day 2014

The history of Labor Day

Fox News Morons Call American Unions and Workers ‘Fascist Parasites’


Les Carpenter said...

Ah, the drama.

Having spent 33 years in management I can safely say only a moron fails to recognize the value of and the contributions labor has made to the nation's relative prosperity.

Just like in most things labor has it's "bad actors", five to ten percent at most. Management can serve to keep the percentage at the low end. A discussion for another time perhaps.

Projecting through mangling language - a Murdoch Media/Fox Network specialty. No lie is too great.

Give it a rest Ema, thinking people are capable of distinguishing the truth from falsehood. For those who are stuck in their paradigm, or box, and prefer to sit in the choir it will remain as it is for them.

BTW, this is true of all partisans, regardless of their particular politics and or beliefs. And, the same can be said if MSNBC, CNN, and other cable news that can be said of FOX News.

Management also has its bad actors, and unions use to help keep the percentage low. That's one of the reasons big business is out to destroy unions. And they have been fairly successful.

A politically correct right wing blogger wrote: "I'm tired of seeing and hearing the word bagger."

Found on the P.C. right wing blogger's blog:

"Nothing surprises me any more what our Pecker Head President does or says."

On this Labor Day, I'm laboring to understand right wing hypocrisy.

RN, Jerry, and Mr. Free Thinke,

Unions were formed because management took advantage of its workers by forcing them to work long hours in awful conditions for little pay. And yes, some of the unions became riddled with organized crime. Terrible.

The pendulum has swung in the opposite direction where corporations have effectively shut out unions and the formation of new ones. And the minimum wage is still stuck at where it was, when? a dozen years or so ago? That's to the corporations' advantage and it's crushing the workers who have to live and raise families.


I'm no fan of FAUX NOOZ, but I rarely, if ever, watch cable news.

Anonymous, you can "labor all day" and not be able to figure out their double-standards of being offended by "bagger," "Ronnie Raygun," but seeing nothing wrong with "Hitlery," Hildebeaste," "Ovomit," and "Moochelle."

Having Mr. Obama elected twice by the American people sent them over the cliff, and I think a lot of them "went all funny in the head," so that their ability to see themselves as others see them, e.g., their hypocrisy vis-a-vis sensitivity to name-calling, is totally missing.

"Pecker Head president?" LOL!

Younger folks would use "dickhead." Maybe the person who wrote that was trying to be more p.c.? LOL!

You know nothing about me or my political affiliations. Telling me to look in the mirror is a Waste of Time.

"tit for tat?" and "getting even?"

I've read your blog and your friends blogs where Obama is accused of everything except eating fetuses for breakfast.

You use bitter language to cut off anyone who disagrees with you. A tactic employed by partisans who don't really want a discussion but to dominate and crush anyone who has different political ideas or who dares to embrace a liberal ideology.

As for mirrors you could use a few yourself.

I voted for Georg H.W and George W Bush. His son ruined the Republi an Party for me and many others li8ke me. Today's GOP is not one I recognize anymore.

the poster on Ronnie Raygun says more truth about how crazy the wingers are than anything else. Ronnie was missing in action when Americans were killed when the plane was shot down and all he could do was whine about having to cut his vacation short?

What a guy!
