    Be sure to call every voter in elections and every member of every legislature, commission, committee, club etc. in America rapists too, because that's how democracy works.

    Maybe you could start a "democracy = rape" thread. After all, those who didn't vote - AND THOSE WHO VOTED NO - are being forced to go along with the majority.

    That would be entertaining.

    This is simply another piece of evidence which clearly demonstrates the utter and complete contempt the right wing has for the democratic process and is only interested in one thing - their agenda being triumphant.

    NLRB election procedures - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Let's have no more bull**** about "middle of the night" elections.
    Michigan's government will stop collecting union dues from about 16,500 home-based child-care providers, who had been unionized in many cases without their consent. The change comes after a protracted lawsuit on the providers' behalf by the free-market Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, the Detroit News reports .
    Beginning in January 2009, about 40,000 child-care providers suddenly found union dues were being deducted from the subsidies the state pays on behalf of low-income families. Subsequently, more than half of them stopped serving such families. Even with this falling enrollment, the union collected about $4 million over 20 months. It might have to return the money, pending another lawsuit.
    In order to help ailing labor unions boost their membership totals and dues collections, the administration of former Gov. Jennifer Granholm had colluded with UAW and AFSCME to create a shell company as the "employer" of the state's independent, home-based child care providers. This so-called "employer," the Michigan Home Based Child Care Council, in turn funneled the providers' money to a newly created union, Child Care Providers Together Michigan. The union collected the providers' dues without providing any training, benefits, or collective bargaining.
    Last summer, the Examiner's Joel Gehrke drew attention to this collusion.
    “This only benefited the unions and their allies in government,” said Michael Jahr, a spokesman for Mackinac. Michigan's legislature never authorized the arrangement, which Jahr told the Washington Examiner was illegal.
    Jahr said that child-care providers were targeted by the unions because their independence and large numbers make them vulnerable. “It is hard for them to coordinate themselves to fight this effort," he said. He noted that the provider who first came to them asking for help would have had to "mail letters to 70,000 people” whom she didn't know in order to fight the unionization effort.
    The unions claim that in 2006, they mailed ballots to nearly 70,000 child care providers so that they could choose whether to unionize. They say that out of 6,000 responses, 5,500 indicated approval of the new union. “Every day-care provider we talked to said they never saw a ballot,” said Jahr. “Makes you wonder who got ballots.”
    Huh huh. Keep drinking the kool-aide.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The example you cite does nothing at all to negate the post about the NLRB provisions for elections. Nothing.

    You clearly are not interested in discussing the facts of this thread.

    If true, this looks illegal. It was stopped by a lawsuit. It has nothing to do with the legal election procedures we are discussing.

    I love it when posters argue for something to be illegal that is already illegal, by citing a violation of a law that is already a law.
