Pakistan's Sindh Province Flood Victims

I was perusing photos that Ann Althouse linked to in her post about spooky spider webs due to the floods in Pakistan (they are worth viewing) where I found a photograph of a Muslim man who dyed the hair on hs head and chest with henna as is that region's religious habit. Maybe I'll carry such a photograph to whip out everytime I get odd looks for my Ash Wednesday smudge.

Neutral Means 'No': WI Unions Upping The Extortion Racket

If a business owner wants to just do their business then they are union busting cretins who need to be put out of business and it appears police force members are okay with that. So, what's a union to do? Easy, tell the business that they have to place a sign visible to all as protection or else. The or else clause is that if thy choose to be neutral and serve all customers they will be targeted, i.e. extorted, with threats to themselves and their business. Talk about worker's rights.

WSEU circulating boycott letters

Members of Wisconsin State Employees Union, AFSCME Council 24, have begun circulating letters to businesses in southeast Wisconsin, asking them to support workers’ rights by putting up a sign in their windows.

If businesses fail to comply, the letter says, “Failure to do so will leave us no choice but (to) do a public boycott of your business. And sorry, neutral means 'no' to those who work for the largest employer in the area and are union members."

To lend gravitas to the union action the lead extortionist Jesse Jackson has lent his support to the unions.
