All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.

Empowering the companies is what he does. The members do not stand a chance. Which is why non union is gaining ground.

Obama's people are in touch with Frank and something big is in the making. Frank's tenure as General President may be short only because President Obama recognizes his leadership skills, he will be serving the administration inEurope the next stop will be US Senate in 2016 for Illinois
