Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 21, 2019

President Donald Trump has spent much of this week talking about the idling of General Motors' Lordstown, Ohio, production plant, some four months after it made national news. Having promised no such plant would close on his watch, Trump turned to an unusual villain in a speech Wednesday: union dues.

Speaking to a crowd at a different manufacturing facility in Lima, Trump laid blame for the shuttering of Lordstown at the feet of the United Auto Workers union. The UAW has represented workers there for decades, and Trump has publicly attacked Dave Green, the president of the union's Lordstown local.

"You're paying too much dues," Trump said to workers. "As an example, they [the UAW] could've kept General Motors. They could've kept it in that gorgeous plant at Lordstown. They could've kept it. Lower your dues. Lower your dues."

Pres Trump could have passed a tax cut bill that actually benefited the workers directly, by making a significant cut in the taxes the middle class pays. Instead, Pres Trump chose to give the huge tax cut to the wealthy.

Collection a healthy pension after only 20 years of being well paid. A pension most people, if they are even offered one by an employer, they have to work until 65 to receive.

I was not responsible for trump, but I will admit to seeing several episodes of Duck Dynasty.
The kids liked it and it always seemed to be on.

That was before they got all the fame and started getting all the religious/political press.

The show that I am most embarrassed of serially watching is Cops.
There's just something about seeing dummies get tazed that entertains the hell out of me though.
