Supreme Court “BEAT DOWN” on Unions Today

The SEIU just lost a huge battle with the the Supreme[s] today in a heated debate how unions can “TAKE” money from union members in the form of “SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS“, and give that member[s] a choice to pay, or not pay, that due as an “OPT IN” system.

What this means is that union members who are forced to pay dues for collective barging rights still have to pay these dues, for the “right to have a job”. But the courts found that special assessments are  another union due, that was taken from members to be used to fund political campaigns to support politicians that voted the way the unions wanted even if the members “disagreed” with that political view point. That is now against the law as of this morning in a 7 to 2 decision in favor of banning that practice.

The two justices that were in favor of this law were Kagen, and Breyer, and obviously in support of union bosses and how they spend their money to fund politically motivated causes. This is a huge blow to unions as they lose more public support while members wane their allegiance to unions that support a archaic cause.

Also another case FCC v. Fox news was struck down “UNANIMOUSLY” in favor of the 1st amendment for free speech in the profanity case brought by our own government. This was unprecedented since this was the first time the supreme[s] scolded the FCC for attacking “FREE SPEECH” telling them they have no right to tell a network what they can or cannot say on public airwaves.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
