The Postal Union's in the bag for Obama, too.......and its members have to pay for it

"America has not always been the Land of Opportunity. It has been, for example, a land of slavery and child labor, where women and Native Americans, among others, have been denied basic equality. There has been an explosion of homelessness, soup kitchens, and cheese giveaways. For many people, over many years, this was a land of hopelessness. The comfort that has been extended to many is now jeopardized, and if you think that no matter which candidates you support in the November election, tomorrow will be just like yesterday, well, think again." American Postal Workers Union President, William Burrus, in a postal workers newsletter article. (it's unreal)

Here's more; but NEVER a mention of OBAMA!! NO candidate. Very clever:

"The future is now and it is urgent. I ask you to vote for hope and for the future. I ask you to reject fear and to reverse the blunders of the last eight years. Practice and protect your values in the privacy of personal relationships, but elect your leaders based on their potential for using government for people like you. We do not need the experience of those who got us to this fork in the road. We need a fresh look; we need change."

Here's a bit from another article: (notice "redistribute income")

"First of all, we must recognize that the things mentioned above are not “the problems,” they are the symptoms of even greater problems facing this country: economic inequality; the lack of political will to redistribute income; and the squandering of our nation’s wealth."

By the way...Those Americans in the top 10% pay 65.84% of all taxes...The top 50% pay 96.54% of all taxes.........Does any of this make a DENT in the mind of a Marxist Union Leader? Just how much CAN we tax them and just who's going to open companies and hire people if they get even more taxed? This guy makes it sound like the rich are living off the backs of those taxes paid by the poor, who don't PAY tax!? WHAT??

"First of all, we must recognize that the things mentioned above are not “the problems,” they are the symptoms of even greater problems facing this country: economic inequality; the lack of political will to redistribute income; and the squandering of our nation’s wealth."

Remember my piece about the Union which included this?:

"You can spend union dues money to print and distribute literature that educates your membership on the candidates’ positions on the issues.
You can loan paid union staff to work in a campaign.
You can use dues money for non-partisan voter registration and “Get Out The Vote” drives aimed at APWU members and their families.
You can have APWU Auxiliary members and retirees as well as active APWU members conduct phone banks to raise contributions and/or pledges for COPA. "

Right....they're using union money in many clever ways, and they'll swear till the day we have $300.00 first class stamps that THEY AREN'T CAMPAIGNING FOR ANY PARTICULAR CANDIDATE, right? That's as laughable as ROCK THE VOTE when they say "we don't care who kids vote for, we just want them to be good citizens and vote!!" That's one of my favorite hypocries of this election period.

The photo above, the cover of the APWU Newsletter, has people in blue OBAMA Tshirts...maybe there's a law that you can't WRITE the name of whom you're secretly campaiging for in an article but you can WEAR it? !! NO BIAS, that's clear.
So, we remind Americans of all the travesties in America society for all these years and enable them to feel good about voting for freebies......."we want to make your life better......BIG BROTHER WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU!" Pretty intoxicating. Pretty horrid for America.

I've known several postal workers personally, and most of them were scared to death that the Republicans were going to screw up their cushy deal. Slashing their wages, robbing them of their benefits, etc...

Even after two terms of Reagan and three terms of Bush I & II, they still fall for it every time.

I think Burrus must be related to Michelle Obama.

I wonder if teachers' unions are doing the same.

Oh my gosh … a union is supporting a Marxist? Will wonders never cease? Of course, they do have it right: select leaders based on their potential for using government (as their own personal checking account), elect people who resist economic inequality, and who lack the political will to redistribute income. Yes, they have it right if they belong to the Communist Party and advocate a soviet state to replace our American Republic.

They have it wrong if they are concerned about “squandering our nation’s wealth.” That would be within the purview of the men who now advise Barack Obama (Raines, Howard, Johnson), and a host of others: Frank, Pelosi, Waters, and so on. This is why unions no longer have any credibility in the United States . . . it is why union membership has decreased so dramatically in the past 50 years. I feel the lesson here is that truly stupid people are those who refuse to learn. Who among us does not understand that economic equality begins with valuing education?

As for wearing blue . . . wasn’t that the color of Monica’s dress?

The nea wanted all their members to wear blue one day this week...and handed out little obama pins to go with it!
Pandering...

Z,

Thanks for that article. I sent the link to this article on your site to about fifty close friends..

It is no surprise but is is amazing how brazen the unions are in support of Obama. Their own publication incriminates them for what seems like a violation of the law... but they will never be prosecuted.

Now we know what our postage stamps are buying. Subtle? Naaaa. Blatent!!!!!
In your face?

YESSSS!!!!

My daughter, a Teacher's Assistant for exceptional children is surrounded by liberal Obama supporting bosses and teachers.

SAD!!!

In Christ thankfully,

I belong to LIUNA and I hate the idea that any of my dues money goes to politics because just about every dime is given to Demoncraps. This year to add insult to injury, they called and asked me if I would give up hours of my time to man pjone banks. I told them to GO POUND F###### SAND!!

For years I've taken bull from many of my co-workers over politics. This year is different. The union is backing NOBAMA, but a lot of my co-workers are with me. I think I just might have had a little to do with that.(smiles)
