New Yorkers always vote Democrat and love the unions that help keep the Democrats in power here. Anyone who has EVER voted Democrat here and still has no electric after the October hurricane, should just STFU.Another goon from Texas:
Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?" he wrote. "Let each go her own way."
Morrison went on to express anger at the "maggots" who backed Obama, specifically calling out non-white voters, whom he accused of voting for the president on an "ethnic basis."
Bud Kennedy of the Star-Telegram has more details.
Republican officials in Texas have been glum about the concept of a second Obama term in the past. A judge from Lubbock predicted over the summer that the president's reelection could even lead to a civil war.
Fla. utility: Union delayed crews for LIPA
November 9, 2012 by MARK HARRINGTON
As superstorm Sandy pounded Long Island last week, representatives for the Long Island Power Authority began making mayday calls to repair crews across the nation. But their requests for help came with a footnote, according to one utility group that received a call: Contact the local electrical union first so that imported workers could be signed up as members before they arrived.
With repair work still going on 12 days later and more than 160,000 Long Islanders still without power after Sandy and this week's nor'easter, the contention that LIPA's union leaders required so-called "assent letters" sent to would-be workers early in the restoration has become an issue as ratepayers look for answers about why it's taking so long to get power back.
Barry Moline, executive director of the Florida Municipal Electric Association, said Long Island could have received 125 additional workers from utilities across Florida as soon as two days after the storm if a dispute about the letters had been resolved sooner. He said most of the crews from Florida who were available were nonunion and refused to join Local 1049 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, even if only temporarily. IBEW Local 1049 represents some 2,000 National Grid workers contracted by LIPA.
"To have this contract thrust upon these organizations on short notice is an affront ..." Moline said. "We said [to IBEW local],'Why are you doing this?' They said,'We want them [imported workers] to get a taste of the union so that when they go back home, they want the union.' "
Crews that could have come to Long Island went instead to Pennsylvania, Moline said. "We could have been there on Wednesday, and instead we arrived on Sunday," he said, after the union rescinded the requirement.
