The State of Unions

It used to be that Democrats and Unions were as synonymous & inseparable as bread and butter or toast and jam..

This was when Democrat leadership was what we call 'True' or 'Sincere' Democrat v this current bastardization started by the rotten Clintons in 1992 which is best labelled 'Wall Street' Democrat.

And trust us, there is a Big difference between Sincere Democrats and Wall Street Democrats who is nothing more than figurative 'donkeys' performing the same whore servitude to the stock market, banks and 1% as their Republican whore 'elephants' have perfected over the last century...
Sincere Democrats successfully fought for Civil Rights in the 1960s..

If Wall Street Democrats had been in power, they would have consulted with Wall Street, sought their approval and only Then pursued the social-legislative changes.

That's certainly the only reason gay marriage was pushed hard and ultimately won in the Supreme Court..

It wasn't that the Wall Street Democrats like the Clintons and Obama had any moral passion or genuine concern about gays obtaining full secular equality in this area beyond using them as a voting bloc every election..

Corporations, especially retail decided it was in their financial best interests to support marriage equality and that along with some public nudges by VP Biden toward reluctant Obama gave the party the 'courage' to support the position.
The last few decades, Democrats have been a shell of the political party they used to be especially when it comes to protecting the worker and Unions are now Finally beginning to wake up..

As if the collapse of her poll numbers and trust factor were not already accelerating, it appears rotten old Hillary Clinton may have just seen yet another nail in the coffin of her run for Queen

Yesterday, the Teamsters union’s general executive board voted unanimously 26-0, to hold off on endorsing Clinton at its meeting in Charleston, South Carolina.

Furthermore, to rub further salt in that wound, the union is seeking a "sit-down" with Donald Trump.
The vote was no accident.. It was meant as an intentional snub of old bitch Hillary for backing away from her previous support for the job-creating Keystone pipeline.

The union is holding off until union-friendly Vice President Joe Biden makes a decision about whether or not to run for president.

The union also seeks a “sit down” meeting with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose recent tax reform proposal drastically lowers the corporate and individual tax rates for the middle class in an effort to spur job growth, savings, and investment.

And this is not the first time a Union has made a public stand vs that wretched old woman..
Last month, the National Nurses Union endorsed Democratic challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (a Sincere Democrat) over Clinton.

In addition, AFL-CIO head Richard Trumpka threatened to sit out the 2016 election until Clinton backed away from her support of President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, which unions strongly opposed.

Whether or not these and other Unions have the guts to ultimately middle-finger Hillary in the general election if she is the Democrat nominee, who knows..

Personally, we doubt it..   That would take even bigger testicles than Hillary possesses underneath her pantsuits

But its nice to see Unions wake up from their 20+ year slumber
Republicans historically have always been anti-Union so that forced them into the warm embrace of the Democrats who especially between 1932 and 1976 have been able to use their manpower and donations to get their party into power.

It is no secret that Union loyalty and support deserves a lot of credit for the fact that between 1931 to 1995 (64 years) the Democrats had been the majority party in the House of Representatives for all but 4 of those years.

But two embarrassing blowout Presidential election losses to Reagan in 1980 & 1984 along with George "I am not a Wimp' Bush Sr kicking Michael 'I like riding in tanks for PR' Dukakis' tushy in 1988 made along with dwindling Union resources made party Democrats re-think things

And in 1992 along comes Bill Clinton, the epitome of backwoods poor white trash who only loved one thing more than chasing pussy (no, not Hillary)   That love was wealth; the admiration of and desire to hobnob with the financial elite..
So as President he did everything he could to make Wall Street as rich as they could and the power boys rewarded Bill with eight years in office and a lot of financial connections for his wife to receive through that funneling mechanism called the 'Clinton Foundation'

And Obama being no dummy, saw in 2008 which way the bread was buttered..

How about that-- we used the same analogy twice..
The State of Unions of 2015 is very sad

We see them as the 21st century version of the American Indian and as globalization becomes more prevalent, outsourcing a part of employment reality and a business' best buddy - temping not going anywhere, Unions with no sincere political support left..

All that is left is the 'reservation' and a couple pages mention in history books when they were relevant.
