Union B.S. Watch #5: God Wants You In a Union?


no-bsSeveral tipsters e-mailed us the Hot Air blog regarding the union bosses’ campaign to take enact the hallucinogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act.  It seems that union bosses are invoking religion to con the public into supposrting the effective elimination of secret-ballots on unionization and government imposition of wages and benefits on companies and their employees.

As the folks at Hot Air point out:

Unfortunately, they prove themselves just as adept at religious analysis as they do at politics in connection with Card Check.  “Our true wealth is the good we do in this world” isn’t an argument for higher wages, but a call to disregard the material over the spiritual.  Did they even read that before sticking it on a representation of the Dead Sea Scrolls — which, by the way, had nothing at all to do with Islam?  Only the middle quote, James 5:4, has anything to do with wages and payment — and even that was a parable.  Jesus was not the “first community organizer,” and He didn’t die on the cross in order to get management to talk to labor.

Pathetic?  Disingenuous? Lame?  In answer to all three and in a word:  YES

Union B.S.?  Pure!
