"We meet in the midst of a nation brought to the verge of moral, political, and material ruin. Corruption dominates the ballot-box, the Legislatures, the Congress, and touches even the ermine of the bench. The people are demoralized.… The newspapers are largely subsidized or muzzled, public opinion silenced, business prostrated, homes covered with mortgages, labor impoverished, and the land concentrating in the hands of capitalists. The urban workmen are denied the right to organize for self-protection, imported pauperized labor beats down their wages.… The fruits of the toil of millions are boldly stolen to build up colossal fortunes for a few, unprecedented in the history of mankind, and the possessors of these, in turn, despise the Republic and endanger liberty. From the same prolific womb of governmental injustice we breed the two great classes—tramps and millionaires."

Lynch, its good to see that you're off your meds. Frank beat you like a rented mule and now he's General President. No you're a babbling idiot, why don't you get Brad a job? Girl Scout troup 371 says you're nothing but a Brownie.

Does anyone else see that iuec is rigged before the game begins. The union is a joke. If they can't win they cheat or pay off or extort or bribe their way and if that doesn't work they lie, slander , libel, against anybody that disagrees with them and the democratic party covers up their crimes.

Real nice Brad, but what do you except from a scab. Your buddy EJ told us everything about the Truman Show. The union is stronger without your stupidity. Brad you were the weakest link..... GOODBYE.

Brad, I bought my new refrigerator last night I will deliver it to any underpass you want.. I will reinforce the box with 2 by 4's and put a plastic coat on it. As literally a house warming kit I'm throwing in 2 cases of sterno. The Executive Board voted last night to send you a carton of toilet paer and Frank bought you a squegee and bucket so you can make some money washing windows when the cars come off the tollway. Dan Baumann has donated an old winter coat while John Valone will give you his old putter to fight off the rats. Tom Manning is donating several rolls of aluminium foil so you can continue to get those signals from outer space from years to come. Brad this probes we still care.

Frank also brought the DOL criminal investigation to a whole new level. The people that tell you other wise are either a Target or just don't know. But when they do ask them for the paperwork.

FYI., there is no paperwork. Just like obama and the democratic machine they LIE !!!!!!!

That document is in regard to the "Election Complaint" and has nothing to do with the "29 Page Declaration" whatso ever. Nice try !!!

Just like the obama adminstration, all they do is lie just like iuec.

Brad I heard that Walmart has a job opening for a cart fetcher. As a perk Walmart might let you keep a cart to keep your stuff in. Hell the Executive Board will build a cartport for your new refrigerator box home. We make you a tin can snd string telephone with direct lines to the DOL and NLRB. We can put a satalite dish made from aluminium foil on the roof with a wire to your tin foil hat so you can get those voices from outer space loud and clear. We are going to set up you new refrigerator box home at the underpass within spitting distance from the dumpster at PF Changs, that should be good eating for you. Good luck on that job at Walmart and you can use the Hall as a reference.

Just like the obama administration that lies on a continual basis about everything so doe iuec.

That documentation is old. It is about the election complaint and nothing about the ongoing criminal investigation of IUEC, it's OFFICERS(that's dan too), Employees. and it's EMPLOYERS.
