    I taught in public schools for 38 years. No one told me how to vote, ever. If they had, I'd have told them to go screw themselves, only perhaps not so tactfully.

    The phrase everyone seems to have forgotten is this: secret ballot.

    Oh, and the guy who sent the letter you've been talking about has issued an apology:

    "Distributing this communication was an error of judgment on my part," Siegfried's statement said. "Please know it was never my intention to offend anyone. For those that I have offended, I sincerely apologize."

    Funny, when my wife taught school in VA the Union rep would "remind" them how democrats support the teacher unions before every election.

    Oh come now anyone with the ability to think knows Obama and all tax and spend Liberals are anti-Business.

    This was perfectly legal and nothing compared to Democrat voter fraud taking place everywhere right now.

    That loophole should be closed. The union definitely has the ability to affect a members income.

    that's how many unions roll; in Bama the Education Union played way dirty in our Republican gubenatorial primary.


    Executives at the casino giant Harrah’s pushed company employees to vote early in an all-out effort to help the Harry Reid campaign, according to internal emails obtained by Battle ‘10.

    The stepped-up effort began Wednesday when a Reid staffer sent an email pleading for help to Harrah’s top lobbyist, Jan Jones. Soon after, Marybel Batjer, Harrah’s vice president of public policy and communications, distributed that plea via email to executives throughout the company. The Reid campaign staffer, whose name was removed in the email Batjer sent to Harrah’s executives, said “ANYTHING” would be done to help with the company’s get out the vote effort. The staffer cited the fact that 1,100 MGM employees had already voted and indicated dissatisfaction with the turnout from Harrah’s.

    The staffer told Jones, senior vice president of communications and government relations, that the Reid campaign had “connected with Culinary” and that the problem was with mid-level supervisors. “They simply are not cooperating with and listening to upper management,” wrote the staffer.

    The Reid staffer then indicated that the culinary union had money available for more busses to take Harrah’s employees to the polls. The Reid staffer suggests that Harrah’s execs “put a headlock on your supervisors to get them to follow through.”..

    It's no secret that unions in general lean toward the Democratic Party. Unions, however, do not employ their members. The unions work for the members, not the other way around. Sure, they can promote the party that favors strong unions, so what? There is a big difference between putting in a plug for your favorite party and telling people how to vote.

    Haha, exactly. Libs want to focus on how Bush increased the deficit to record levels after coming in on $236 billion surplus, and how things didn't start improving until 2003, but what they don't realize is that he also entered office during a small recession, and its impossible to recover from a recession in only three years. So they can't blame Bush for anything that happened with the economy from 2000-2003, nor can they blame him for his spending because he was funding two wars and also provided a bailout. Try again liberals.
