The story of Obama the NLRB and Boeing is not a new story, but each time I hear an acolyte, apologist, shill or just an ignorant person (Leslie Marshall most recently) try to defend NLRB's position in trying to deny Boeing the right too operate their manufacturing plant in South Carolina, I find it incomprehensible. That is, except for the fact that I have learned to expect the worst from this administration. The incomprehensible had now become the expected!
How can anyone be so stupid, if not stupid then dishonest, to say his major focus is to create jobs and concurrently  have a goal to increase exports by 50% by 2015 and have his shill (Craig) in the NLRB prevent operations of an airplane plant that would employ 3,800 now and more later??? Our major exports are airplanes. It's even worse when they also rant about China when China is likely to be a big competitor in building airplanes. Yes, Mr. President, it is entirely possible that you are setting up China to help them do what they already want to do. I'm again reminded that he is "brilliant" -- by proclamation but not by demonstration.
But he's in the company of many more.
How many people even think about how many jobs, and whole industries, unions have destroyed? How many care??

What ever happened to the House Un-American Activities Committee?

This NLRB action is just about as Un-American as you could possibly imagine. It doesn't get any worse than this.

In degree this action only differs from the Yacht Industry, which was decimated by the trashing of the wealthy who buy such items, by just a very small amount. It was foolishly thought to bring in untold amounts of money from these evil wealthy who buy such items. It crippled an entire industry.

It is not much of a stretch to imagine the Government badmouthing iPads and iPod Touchs and iPhones. After all, they are gadgets for the wealthy are they not? Not useful for anything. Just a toy. (I hasten to add that this is sarcasm and the sarcasm flag is now set to zero.....)
