Man, if you’re a member of the giant public employee union AFSCME, this has gotta hurt. Their chief announced yesterday plan to raise $60 million between now and 2009 and $60 million a year after that from — you guessed it — increased dues from members. And what will he do with this money? Pour it down the same political rat hole in which he’s poured the prior few hundred million — supporting causes and candidates with which his members don’t agree. “In 2004,” says the AFSCME boss, “progressives [the new term for liberals] lost our third straight election…”
Gee, why do you think that was? It’s because they’re outside the mainstream, that’s why. And they’re financing their personal political jihad with their members’ hard-earned cash. If you’re a union member, at some point don’t you just get tired of seeing your money get wasted like this?
