Don't worry - you strikers have been successful in your mission! The Messiah Obama has a place for all of you. Grab a balck shirt (brown was already taken by Hitler) and join the putsch for Hussein. He will give you jobs. He will give you bread. He will take from you according to your abilities and give to you according to your needs. Comrades! get behind The Messiah Obama and he will make everything better for you! Another example of blue state capitalism - go on strike and see the benefits of standing up to big CEO's. You really showed them didn't you?

Pass the word to one and all. We have a chance this year to take government back from the real criminals in this state, the politicians. VOTE YES FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. The only people against this are the corrupt politicians and their friends the lobbyists. The lobbyists can't control us like the corrupt politicians. Remember how JODI was going to clean up the state. Remember how the criminals refused to pass legislation taking away pensions from criminals like Johnny Boy.

They axed people because of the Boeing strike? How stupid is that? What happens when the strike is over? They squeeze more.

The only employment growth in this state will be in the health, education & government sectors. It will be a long while (if ever) before manufacturing jobs return.
