littlebytesnews's curator insight, May 16, 2013 7:00 PM

For this reason, among others, this administration has lost all credibility from the bottom up. It's time to impeach!! Firing underlings who were leaving anyway or who had nothing to do with the IRS scandal is not going to work!! An apology is not enough! It's too late to apologize and it's not enough to fire underlings who were only taking orders from above, but also had nothing to do with the corruption. 

 

Those who must be held accouontable are the ones at the top...they are the ones who should know what the rest of their administration is doing!!

Two GOP Judges Just Voted To Eliminate Union Rights, Here’s How The Senate Can Stop Them

Two GOP Judges Just Voted To Eliminate Union Rights, Here’s How The Senate Can Stop Them | Current Politics | Scoop.it
Two events this morning strike at the heart of whether workers have the right to organize.
Tom Hauck's insight:

Unions don't have rights...PEOPLE have rights...I know it's so hard to remember that unions were created for the people back in the day. Now they are for themselves and the lavish lifestyles of the upper administration... There is no more "looking out for the worker"...once the dues are locked in...the worker only exists to pay...This is proven time and time again as Unions continue to negotiate the life out of every industry they become attached to...city by city they are now destroying public service personell...by negotiating themselves out of affordability.... If they could...they would drain the entire country and then move on to others...not that they aren't trying to go global now... They just can't figure out how to strong-arm countries who aren't afraid to hit back....
