    Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat[W:600]

    'In a stinging defeat that could accelerate the decades-long decline of the United Auto Workers, employees voted against union representation at Volkswagen AG's Chattanooga, Tennessee plant, which had been seen as organized labor's best chance to expand in the U.S. South.

    Retired Tennessee Circuit Court Judge Sam Payne, who oversaw the count, said workers voted against UAW representation by 712 to 626.'

    Time for the Democrats to go shopping for an activist judge and then call for a recount.

    Eric Holder has a list of reliable federal activist judges to pick from.

    You know how it works, keep recounting the ballots until you get the votes you need. That's what the Democrats tried to do in Florida back in 2000.

    >"Then after the election, we count the votes. And if they don't turn out right, we recount them. And recount them again. Until they do.''<


    Remember ''Key Largo,'' the 1948 trapped-on-a-Florida-isle thriller that starred Edward G. Robinson as a gangster (what else?) and Humphrey Bogart as the good guy?

    If not, herewith is a snatch of the dialogue, Robinson to Bogart, as dredged up the other day by The Boston Globe:

    ''Let me tell you about Florida politicians. I make them. I make them out of whole cloth, just like a tailor makes a suit. I get their name in the newspaper. I get them some publicity and get them on the ballot. Then after the election, we count the votes. And if they don't turn out right, we recount them. And recount them again. Until they do.''

    Well we can clearly see you didn't read the article, or even attempt to understand how this worked. You know the judge in this story was retired right? He just oversaw the vote because I suppose he was considered an unbiased person, he wasn't appointed to that position you know.

    I read the article and I know how it works. In my life time I've been a member of the Longshoreman's union, a Teamster and a member of the IBEW.
    The judge who over saw the UAW vote wasn't an activist liberal judge and that's the problem the Democrats and the UAW have. They'll demand a recount and will demand a liberal activist judge to be appointed to oversee the recount. That's how it works. "We recount them. And recount them again."

    Where the #### where you in 2000 ?

    We need to pass Card Check, so those anti-union hands can be intimidated into voting for unionization.

    Someone had to make the decision on who would oversee the counting.

    Maybe it was Chancellor Merkel ?

    Re: Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat

    We need to impeach Sen. Corker and Gov. Haslam who lied about what VW represented.
    VW had to correct Corker's and Haslam's lies several times.
    It is okay for the KOCH brothers to dump tens of millions of secret monies, while GOP posters fret over Unions.

    And it's okay for Duke Energy to dump tens of millions of pounds of coal-ash in NC waters.
    McCrory is the next dirty GOP governor ready to get raked over the coals, literally.
    The good people of the South are only a decade away from rising up against this GOP politburo to save their environment and way of living .

    A decade ago, this vote would not have even taken place.
    That it was this close shows how close the workers are to being freed from the GOP Gulags.

    That a United States Senator had to intervene and lie his A$$ off about VW shows how desperate the GOP is.
    VW corrected Corker several times and you didn't notice Sen. Alexander saying anything, since he is up for reelection.

    That Grover Norquist had to be called in to buy up billboards replacing the word AUTO with OBAMA in UAW should remind DEMs just how low the
    GOP will go to maintain their death grip once a right-to-work status is determined.

    The GOP has now given the DEMs plenty of new material here.
    It is now up to the DEMs to use it wisely and go-for-the-throat, as the GOP has just done .
