"We are done fucking around".
Hey, wake the fuck up.
The AFL-CIO and I go back as far as I can remember and then some, my Dad retired from the Operating Engineers after 35 years and after personally lobbying Congress on the Hill.
Yeah, that Hill, Ted Kennedy and all that.
I was in the Engineers for nine years until I got smacked on the way to work on my motorcycle one day.
I am currently vested in a union affiliated with the AFL-CIO and couldn't be happier to see this ultimatum.
Wake the fuck up you assholes, who the FUCK do you think got yer asses elected?
From the AFL-CIO website;
Here’s what Trumka had to say:
What we said was, there had to be three or four elements in that plan in order for us to support them. If they didn’t support the plan with a public option in it, with an employer mandate and no taxation of benefits, that we would tell our members and let our members decide….The American people are demanding that you do something.
We’ll look at your entire voting record, of course, like we always do. We’ll put the facts out to our members. I think it will be hard for them to get support if they don’t support that.
How about this instead, and you can quote me.
Quit fucking around, everybody knows you wake up every morning with Lobbyist Jizz on yer chin and we are fucking done with that.
Do the right thing for the average American or we are going to kick your asses to the fucking curb.
Come election time, you better have a mouthfull of Jizz , a wad of cash from your corporate masters and a phone number for a local taxi service because we are going to drive away and not look back, you motherfucking whores.
By the way, try and find a taxi driver that takes a check.
I ain't gonna say I like this Trumka dude, don't get me wrong, I have seen quite a bit of what goes on with that side of the game but I am liking the fact that he just kicked a bunch of Blue Dogs right in the fucking balls.
All I can say is;
DO IT AGAIN!!
BTW, you guys that I see all the time between 15th and 16th NW, and between L and M st NW?
Ya, yer a short cab ride away from Lafayette Square and the Headquarters of the AFL-CIO, but you already knew that.
Thanks fer stopping by all the time.
