Out of the Blue

This is the Presidents' Day weekend here in the U.S., which is supposed to be a holiday weekend. This is one of those occasions that I think of as a minor holiday that only schoolkids get off, but not only does MrsBlue have Monday off, but her office is having a half-day today as well, so maybe its more prominent than I think.

Ah, yeah. Just one of the many reasons I'm still baffled that our country has turning anti-union.

In principle unions are good things. Then again, so is communism. In practice it's not even close. I had to quit my last job because I was forced into the union. Forced mind you. Did we lose a war or something? I've actually emailed a few of our politicians asking them to get to work on right-to-work legislation like some of your sensible states have. If someone wants to join a union bully for them, but don't force the rest of the people that don't want to.

Well, Unions are still needed in some areas. I agree they aren't needed everywhere.
