Labor: Pope Supports 'Card Check'

Yep, you read that right. According to the unions, Pope Benedict supports the purposely ill-named Employee Free Choice Act, aka Card Check.

Labor claims Pope Benedict as EFCA supporter
Organized labor groups claimed another prominent supporter of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) on Wednesday: Pope Benedict XVI.

Accordingly, labor will probably announce that the Pope believes unions should own corporations and all the other crap they are supporting.

Rerum Novarum doesn't support their claim, but these are the same people that say they don't use intimidation and violence nor corruption and bribery, but that won't stop them.

They're desperate now that the fog of victory has cleared and they begin to understand that the citizens are even more angry at their tactics and the massive payola scandal involving the new administration and the unions and the take over of corporations.

Running With The Bulls Jr.

I am happy to report that the intelligence, logic and sense of self preservation has passed to another generation.

My son just completed his first running of the bulls in Pamplona.

At least he told me that he was going to. My mother was mightily ticked when she found out. Sometimes details escape my memory.

Or so I told her. Back then.

BONUS: He got to hang with Ernest Hemingway's grandson and sent me photos to prove it.

Good Lord, I hope he doesn't try any more of my youthful activities.

ADHD Biden To Stimulate Stimulus In Cin City

It is appropriate that Jabberin' Joe will be appearing, message and all, in a can factory.

Biden coming to Ohio
Vice President Biden will be in Cincinnati Thursday as part of the Obama Administration's effort to persuade Americans - and key voters in crucial states like Ohio - that the $787 stimulus package and other efforts to spur the economy are on track to create a recovery.

Biden Thursday morning will be at the American Can Building, an old factory that is the site of a "multi-use economic development project," according to the White House.

The vice president's visit was announced last night, not long after the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released a survey of Ohioans showing that President Obama's approval rating has dropped dramatically in the Buckeye State in recent weeks, a sign of voters' frustration with the economy.

Obama is sending his teleprompter and Concerta so Joe will stay on message, but who will ask, "How's that stimulus thing working out for you Joe? Here in Ohio, with double digit unemployment, we're feeling stricklanded."

UPDATE: Hal writes, "Truth of the fact probably is that the President wanted him out of DC." I think he's right.
