Barack Obama, our next President

Union halting power repair crews is top Democratic donor

Union halting power repair crews is top Democratic donorPaul Bedard - Washington Secrets November 2, 2012 | 12:36 pm The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, cited in news reports for halting nonunion repair crews from helping to restore power in superstorm Sandy's New Jersey-New York path, is one of nation's top union donors to Democrats
It's always encouraging when a Google search of some right wing story only shows up on right wing sites.

Try this....

Bottom line, it appears now that Decatur Utilities wrongly assumed they would have to agree to the union contract before traveling to New Jersey to help with recovery efforts. The IBEW said in times of crisis, help is welcomed from union and non-union utility workers.

Hardin said as they waited for confirmation on the documents, crews received word that Seaside Heights had received the assistance they needed from other sources.

"At this stage, it is not clear who is alleged to have turned the crew away and the company that employs the affected workers has denied the claim," said IBEW President Ed Hill in a statement. "IBEW local leaders in New Jersey have reiterated what has been the long standing record of our union – in times of crisis all help is welcome and we pull together with everyone to meet the needs of the public. We have communicated this to the office of New Jersey Governor Christie as well."

The crew from Decatur Utilities attempted to look for work in other areas, but Hardin said based on the uncertainty of other union requirements, they made the decision to return home after being stalled in Virginia most of the day Thursday.

Other utility crews from Alabama are still helping with storm cleanup. Huntsville Utilities said they were not turned away and are in Long Island, New York. Joe Wheeler EMC said they did not respond to New Jersey, but did travel to Maryland and headed home once they were finished.

Non-union power crews welcomed in NJ to help restore service, state says

“We are working with our union and have non union crews participating in our restoration efforts,” said Ron Morano, a spokesman for JCP&L.“We continue to accept support from out of state utility companies and contractors.”

No where else in the world can you view the hypocrisy of the liberal elite more than in New York City. If black slums in the Bronx had been hit as hard by the hurricane than white blue-collar Staten Island, Sean Penn and ilk would have been already putting concerts together like they did for Haiti.

Instead the liberal elitists in NYC did this:

Halloween 2012

Let them eat cake!

Let them eat moldy pastry!

Celebrity twit Debra Messing and various heartless other stars proved beyond doubt that some fabulous New Yorkers don’t have hearts beating in their cold, dead chests.

Fires were barely snuffed out in Breezy Point. The dead were still being counted from here to Jersey. And the bodies of two tiny Staten Island brothers, 2, and 4, who were ripped by Hurricane Sandy from the arms of their frantic mother on Monday, were finally found yesterday, 20 yards from each other. They were gone.

But the rich, the famous and narcissistic weren’t about to let a little weather event ruin their party.

Messing, 44, of TV’s “Smash’’ and “Will and Grace’’ fame, proved on Halloween night that if you have enough money and face recognition, humility and breeding are useless distractions.

The same night, bodies were being pulled from the murky waters around New York City. Folks mourned family and friends killed by falling trees.

And Wednesday, a night of sadness and rebuilding, is when Messing chose to don the costume of Marie Antoinette, whose utterance “let them eat cake” when there was no bread reputedly sparked the French Revolution. She attended an event so hideous, it should have been banned and the revelers buggy-whipped.

It was Bette Midler’s 2012 New York Restoration Project Hulaween Benefit Gala — dubbed, ironically,“A Season in Hell’’— at the posh Waldorf.

There, Messing posed with horror celeb Dita Von Teese, clad in top hat and tails, who bills herself as a “burlesque and fetish star.’’

Midler was dressed as the ghost of Coco Chanel, entertaining designer Michael Kors and his husband, Lance LePere

The food was maintained by working refrigerators that could have been put to better use feeding people who aren’t bulimic.

The shindig, with tables going from $10,000 to $65,000, and co-chaired by Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, was barely 10 blocks from 40th Street. Below that line, thousands of New Yorkers lived without electricity, running water or hope, food spoiling in idle ice boxes.

This Repub LIE was busted two days ago!!!!! This one is no lie:
.
Freeport, Ill.—
What started as a modest protest of Bain Capital’s role in the ongoing layoffs at the Freeport Sensata plant may eventually grow into a full-fledged grass-roots effort to give displaced local workers a voice.
Cheryl Randecker of Freeport is one of the Sensata workers who organized the recent Bain Capital protest, which took place outside the Sensata Technologies/Honeywell plant in Freeport this past Monday.
Randecker is hoping to team up with her fellow workers and other like-minded citizens to continue to protest the layoffs and to urge the passage of federal legislation that would curb the outsourcing of U.S. jobs. This legislation, known as the Bring Jobs Home Act, is currently being debated in Congress.
“Somebody has to take a stand here,” said Randecker, an Associate Production Level 2 employee at the local Sensata plant.“We need jobs with benefits. The companies need to stop being so greedy and look out for the people.”
./
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

My God, I just saw an RNC paid ad that blames the debt & economy on Obama.

The Republican Party that doubled the debt under Bush.

The Republican Party that left the White House with the worst recession in 80 years.

The Same Republican Party that did NOTHING to help us recover?

Had the nerve to put up this ad.

The worse part is that there are actually people that believe that sh*t. Dumb, ignorant uninformed eople.
