- Andrew Breitbart, Does He Really Want Another Civil War? | Assassin Actual — Brietbart, geez, not a fan here at all. The guy, his minions, and his publications are the epitome of what it means to be a propagandist (see what I wrote in Pure Fabrication, Lies and Global Warming Denial Propaganda from Non-other Than Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government here). This is Cavalry Officer in the U.S. Army serving in Iraq right now commenting on the madness that is Breitbart.

- Daily Kos: Chamber of Commerce sues NLRB to block new rule requiring union posters in workplace —
“…It’s like a parody: The Chamber of Commerce is seriously suing to prevent workers from being notified of rights they already have under the law, by means of a poster no one will likely read anyway. And note that the poster doesn’t just tell workers that they have the right to join a union and bargain collectively, and that their employers are prohibited from trying to dissuade them from exercising their rights in specific ways. It also tells them, by the way, that they have the right not to join a union and that unions are prohibited from trying to exert pressure on them to join. But it’s clear which set of information the Chamber thinks workers will respond to more strongly.”
