This is a big enough controversy without outsiders meddling in Whitley County business.  We don’t need unions interfering in our affairs.

Please come to the Plan Commission Meeting tomorrow night.  The meeting is in the lower level of the Government Building, 220 West Van Buren.  Park in the parking lot on the north side.  The meeting starts at 7PM, but let’s get there about 6PM to get seats.

Let’s show Big Labor that we don’t need their help in making decisions for the future of Whitley County.

Hello all –

Below is an article posted on the Industrial Wind Action website today.   It concerns Whitley County and the Plan Commission meeting coming up on Wednesday, February 15,  2012.   It appears that the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Carpenter’s Union has been encouraged to attend the Plan Commission Meeting.

We will need to be mindful to do our best to be cordial,  and make sure that our conduct and our attitude remains above reproach.

NLRB Wants to Force Companies to Turn Over Employee Contact Info

From The Blaze:

Peter Schaumber appeared on Fox’s Your World with Neil Cavuto to discuss a troubling new development within the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Board Chair Mark Pearce is introducing a series of new regulations. One of these regulations, if passed, would require businesses to surrender their employee’s personal contact information to campaigning union heads.

“If the National Labor Relations Board gets its way, companies could be forced to hand over your contact information, whether you like it or not, to union leaders,” Fox host Neil Cavuto said. “Union leaders having access to your phone number, your email address?”

Schaumber, himself a former NLRB chairman, joined Cavuto to discuss his great fear: that unions will use that information to harass people not in a union.

“I think it’s terrible. Workers have a right to be left alone,” Schaumber said.

“They have a right not to be harassed during a union organizing campaign. If a worker has given his or her employer their home phone, their personal email address, their cell phone, it was in the expectation that it wasn’t going to be given to third parties but was going to be used by the employer for the purposes of what it was intended to be given for. And in most instances that’s to contact the employee under emergency situations.”

“Let’s Take These SOBs Out”

From Ricochet:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do, it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

–President Barack Obama, calling for “a new era of civility” after the shootings in Arizona, January 12, 2011

“They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner….President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out….”

–Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., introducing President Obama at a rally in Detroit, September 5, 2011

How did President Obama respond to Hoffa’s introduction?  Delivering not one word of disapproval, uttering not a phrase about the “new civility,” the President merely offered Hoffa his thanks.

God Bless America
