    FBI investigation of Jesse Jackass Jr. Say it ain't so. Another politician from the Chicago area in trouble.

    I guess daddy will claim some sort of racial profiling or some off the wall crap.

    This is nothing more than the administration "throwing a bone" to any undecided voters who may still be out there. A VERY thinly veiled attempt to look like they will pursue justice, even if it's "one of their own".
    Jackson just got thrown under the Obama campaign bus.
    Why now..??? So conveniently close to the Nov. election...???
    Doing a little research on Congressman Jackson, it appears he's certified mentally ill,has a history of sleazy affairs while in office, substance abuse "issues", and is expected to be re-elected easily and remain a 100% safe vote for Obama's ruination of America.
    Thank your UNION BUDDIES who give so much to keep these kind of sh**heads in office.

    Pretty clever, getting documentation of a mental illness prior to your big trial or hearing. Man, these guys are slick.

    Well Don, I don't know what the unions did to you personally but if you want to keep bringing them up I hope they do it again!!!!

    Its your kind of attitude that brought them into existence to begin with.

    Common opinion is that he will get reelcted, resign from office, and the Dem State party head will apoint Jr's wife to the post. It never ends in this state.

    "... he will get reelcted (sic), resign from office, and the Dem State party head will apoint (sic) Jr's wife..."

    You may be right but I wouldn't bet that everything in your statement comes to pass. Consider the individual parts.

    1. It’s an absolute certainty Jackson, Jr. will be re-elected.

    His name is on the ballot. If he dies before Election day, he will still win.

    2. He may or may not resign. Assuming he does, it could be a while coming.

    His constituents don't care where he is or what he's doing. They won't until the flow of pork into the district slows down. The Chicago Trib has been crabbing about the lack of representation for his district but I'm not sure there's any meaningful pressure for him to go.

    Speaking of representation, the district has been represented by an empty suit for the last 20 years. It’s currently represented by an empty chair. Who can argue there's any real difference?

    Don't forget he continues to draw a check until he resigns.

    3. The GOP controls the House. The outcome of any given vote is the same whether Jackson, Jr. is included in that vote or isn't. Eventually, the party WILL care but not so much for now.

    4. There is no question the party will replace Jackson, Jr. when (and only when) they decide it's to their advantage. They'll use the same criteria (what's best for the party) in selecting his replacement. That replacement MIGHT be Sandi but it might be some other do-nothing. Sandi may not even be interested. She may have access to more graft as a Chicago alderman than she would as a freshman legislator with zip for seniority.

    Likes-to-Shoot...I'm glad to see you've kept track...I do endevour to be consistent. The list of issues I have with unions is long and covers a lengthy period of years going back to when I was a teenage kid trying to earn enough money to pay my own way through college. To keep a job carrying quarters of beef off a refrigerated trailer, I was forced to pay-off a union boss or quit the job. It includes some issues from back-in-the-day when a trio of union goons...2 men and a woman, tried to pull my wife out of her car when she was a teen...while she was also just trying to earn money to pay HER OWN WAY through college by working at a facility where those thugs apparently didn't want to work any longer, and were trying to make sure nobody else wanted to work there either. Fast forward to TODAY when I've watched unions hand hundreds of millions of dollars to Obama to bring this current disaster upon us.
    Once I got out of my teen years...I've NEVER AGAIN had to PAY someone to keep a job. My knowledge, skills, abilities and personal work ethic have been more than enough. I feel sorry for those pathetic individuals who have to hide behind a union button and pay off a gang of thugs to remain employed.
    Thanks for asking.

    Likes..........glad to see you know all about what brought the unions into existance.

    Many people, most likely of lesser intelligence have written books on the subject. When is yours coming out?

    Don well stated and thus the reason most that think for themselves and don't need something to hide behind have no problem voting Republican while holding a union card. Did it for 27 years and never once voted as some union leach ask me to. When union members get fed up with how unions ruin businesses and force them to close or relocate thus eliminating more jobs they will then turn the corner and possibly become useful again.

    Bad,

    So you had to feel guilty earning those wages. Why didn't you secretly give back the company the $200 to $300 a week extra you where earning, because of those unions. That would only be fair, and actually match up to your political views, wouldn't it? Was the job union when you applied, and where hired? Why did you join the union?

    America's labor movement grew in response to disgraceful, violent, criminal behavior by owners and owner's hired goons. Early union members and their leadership were brave souls. More than a few were maimed or murdered. They were genuine heroes.

    Some of today's union members live in that distant past. Current leaders flatter themselves by equating today's organizations (and themselves) with the true heroes of the labor movement's past.

    Industrial and craft unions have been in decline for decades. They are sometimes viewed as greedy oppressive organizations prone to intimidation and violence. Isn't it ironic when owners behaved that way, the public SUPPORTED unions. That support is long since gone.

    Public unions are a different category. They represent government employees whose pay checks are funded by taxes. Members of public unions are an absolute majority of the current labor movement. Because they have the numbers, it is THEIR interests and THEIR values that receive the most attention by national leaders (like Trumka of the AFL-CIO) and lib dem/socialist politicians. Unlike industrial unions, public union agendas most directly conflict with the interests of taxpayers.

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is the largest and most prominent of a third big union category. Its members are rarely industrial or craft. A fair number are public employees.

    No matter the sector, the majority of SEIU members are minimum skill and minimum wage workers. They perform hundreds of non-glamorous jobs including such things as janitors, mall security (rent a cop), non-skilled nursing home workers (bed pan haulers), non-licensed child care workers (diaper changers), etc.

    About this point, someone will be thinking I'm disrespectful of minimum skill/minimum wage workers. That would be incorrect. Their work is important and honorable. They perform vital functions. That doesn't change the fact that their minimum skill jobs will never command premium pay.

    The SEIU was founded by Wade Rathke. He's an avowed and self-described socialist. Rathke was also a founding father of ACORN. Yea, THAT Acorn. Rathke's working career began as an organizer for the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO) in Springfield, Massachusetts. He's all about 'social justice'. Imagine that. Any way you slice it Rathke is obummer's kind of guy.

    You commented on ‘becoming useful again”. Unions ARE useful. They function as labor cartels. Pardon the pun but that is job one. In that respect unions function much like the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

    OPEC is an oil cartel. It restricts oil supplies thus driving up oil prices. Unions restrict the labor supply (think 'closed shop') thus driving up labor costs. That's obviously good for membership - perhaps not so good for everyone else. This isn't a criticism. It is a simple statement of fact.

    The problem for the SEIU is that it will NEVER be successful as a cartel. The workers they represent are entry level with minimum skills. The public will not pay premium wages for minimum skills.

    Socialists like Rathke understand that. They have a different agenda. What they never can and never will achieve by collective bargaining, they intend to get from a socialist federal government. That's why SEIU is joined at the hip with lib dem/socialist politicians. It’s also why "real" union members need to distance themselves from it as fast as possible. If they don’t the SEIU will finish killing the already wounded industrial and craft organizations.

    I have to agree with Rodger C, that is probably the best post on how most trades union members fell. Too bad there are people who throw everyone in the same pile to criticize.

    Well done Sissy!!
