Our friend Frank will rubbing elbows with our great President. When he gets confirmed as Labor Secretary you can bet your bottom dollar that he will find out the true identety of the sons of liberrty and there will be heck to pay. Companies will be shaking in their boots because Frank will have the full power of the federal government behind him.

Frank is on no one's payroll except the good members of the IUEC. He has proven himself time and time again and soon the IUEC's shinning star will be the Secretary of Labor. He will set the standard that all cabinet secretaries will be judged. A credit to all unions and credit to all american workers, a fair wage and benefits for all american workers will be his platform. He will have those Republicants bowing before him.

Exciting news President Obama is presentingFrank with the National Labor Man of the Year Award at his banquet in Chicago. Quite an honor for quite a man. Meanwhile Brad is huddled in a cardboard box in an underpass by 95th and Harlem. Please drop off cans of sterno so he can stay warm and their great eating too. It is too bad that job at Walmart didnt work out, must have been too many smoke breaks

It is really a shame unions are riddled with crime/extortion/bribery and embezzlement. Unions only exist for corrupt union bosses to extort companies.

Join a union and you too can be extorted and thrown under the bus by corrupt union bosses who rape and pillage the members. Then invade your privacy and personal lives.

Obama loves criminals. His Justice Department SUCKS !!!!!!!!

the only thing frank rules is CORRUPTION.

He also is pretty good at corrupting Lawyers.

He is very good at having impossible standards for his dissenters and no standards for his cronys, just like Obama.

He is also good at slandering and assasinating members who disagree with him. But what do you expect from a PUNK.
