It will go up here at BizzyBlog on Sunday morning (link won’t work until then) under the title “Our Punk President and His Gangster Government.”
Left on the cutting room floor –
- How crazy is it that Ford has to “negotiate” a new contract with the United Auto Workers union, even though the union has ownership interests in two of its principal competitors, overseen by a government that engineered contract law-violating seizures of value from secured Chrysler bondholders and unsecured General Motors bondholders to enable to union to get its outsized positions in those two companies? The UAW appears to have the government’s implied backing to do whatever it (and the governments) wants. What’s to prevent the government from engineering a strike regardless of what Ford offers?
- The administration’s mistreatment and sackings of corruption-finding inspectors general (e.g., Amtrak, Americorps).
Also: Thanks for the reminder from commenter “Fred Beloit” at PJM — “In foreign affairs Obama seems to be the dictators’ friend. He continues to put pressure on Honduras for legally replacing an illegal administration. At the same time he ignores Iran’s phony election.” Gangsters and punks tend to gravitate towards tyrants and thug rulers.
