If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)

We should do away with the secret ballot and hold all public elections with just a show of hands! Instead of a secret ballot, you go into you polling place and tell an election worker who you want to vote for!
Those statements sound pretty ridiculous don't they? Why then, is the Employee Free Choice Act, also know as card check, any less ridiculous? If this act passes, employees who consider organizing will no longer have the right to a secret ballot but would be asked to publicly sign a union support card. Click on the title of this post to see the Heritage Foundation view of this proposed act.
Here's George McGovern (hardly a Rush Limbaugh) on the subject: "I’ve always been a champion of labor unions, but I fear that today’s union leaders are turning their backs on democratic work place elections." and "I’ve listened to all their arguments, and I’ve reviewed the facts on both sides. Quite simply, this proposed law cannot be justified.”
I always thought it'd be a cold day in hell before I agreed with Mr. McGovern on any issue. What did you say the temperature was out there?
