Hypocrite Much?

So, leftists are all butthurt because a business owner sent an e-mail to his employees telling them that voting for Obama would be bad for business.

Okay, I can grok this. While you are certainly free to work for whomever you choose, in today's economy you want to keep your job. It's human nature. No one wants to rock the boat and be out looking for work, even in allegedly under 8% unemployment. I can understand how and why employees might be intimidated, and no, it's not a good thing.

But how much do you want to bet that the people with their panties in a bunch over this see no problem whatsoever with a union steward telling the union members who they should vote for? Like, say, in Boston where the mayor of the city met with union leaders to get the word out for Fauxcahontas? Or, you know, in PA, once the Senator in question changed parties? Or school employees in Michigan.

Let's recap: Private business owner sends an e-mail to his employees hinting that they should vote a certain way? OUTRAGEOUS! Union heads actively canvassing their members to vote for a certain candidate or political party - even when they're supposed to be doing their job? Why, that's just part of their function. No, there's certainly no coercion in a union steward - the person responsible for backing you in a fight against management - telling you that you *must* vote for Candidate X or Political Party Y.

Remember, it's only an outrage when the other guys do it!

That is all.

Jay, don't let this shock you too badly but we don't always agree on things. Thus I seldom comment, particularly not on your more spittle-splattered rantings.

But this time we can agree. The man owns the business... probably was using his own email system... and thus, within the bounds of tastfulness, can and should be able to say whatever he wants.

The story does make me wonder, though. Firstly, do not the business owner's detractors posess the same right of expression? Cannot someone voice disagreement... even outrage... under the same mantle of freedom you apply to the boss?

And secondly, lets move this business to Louie Gohmert's East Texas where every damn body and their dog is a ranting, raving right-winger... and lets say this business owner just happend to be some liberal whack-job from The People's Republic of Austin, and her email suggested that a vote for the Democratic party would be better for her international trade... I wonder just where we would find the wadded shorts then???

Keep up the good wark, Jay. You're always entertaining.

That right there is the reason for secret ballots.

I can tell you whatever you want to hear about how I voted - but you can't know if it's true.

Mule Breath,

Abso-freakin'-lutely. Folks what disagree with this gentleman have *every* right to shout from the rooftops that they believe he is wrong and that they will not do business with them.

It just struck me as interesting that many of the same people that are ready to stake this business owner to an anthill see nothing wrong with the Mayor of Boston meeting with city union heads to get the unions on board with voting for Taxagawea...

Wait until Romney gets Trashed tomorrow night at the "Town Hall" Debate. If I had a Nickel for every Hypocritical Remark that'll be said......
