AFL-CIO honcho wants to “…re-establish popular control over private corporations”

by editor on September 29, 2010

Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO and frequent White House visitor, has a dark vision for the future of American business.

The AFL-CIO blog, the official mouthpiece for the corrupt union, proudly reports Trumka’s extremist nonsense:

afl-cio richad trumka

Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO honcho and second runner-up in the 2010 Alex Karras Look-Alike Contest, sees a dark future for American business

“…we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.”

Re-establish? Wouldn’t that imply that there had once been popular control over private corporations?

Richard. Mr. Trumka. Sir. Pardon our impertinence, but we believe that what you’re talking about here is National Socialism.

I’ve been a union member for over 30 years, International Union of Operating Engineers. I get involved, and I vote, but it just doesn’t seem to do any good. Trumka doesn’t represent me any more than Obama does.

I Suggest we export the UNIONS to China. THAT should level the playing field…

This guy is stuck in the 1930’s and thinks that his BS will “change” people’s minds – if it does, it’s to further convince the American public that unions have become self-perpetuating big businesses with a communist manifesto. I feel for the poor union member that is *forced* to pay dues, regardless of his convictions, and thugs like Trumka spend it like a member of congress.

Wise up union membership – these guys are leading you to extinction!

MI Vet, you live in a state that has been effed by the Dems & the unions more then any state in the union. If the union drones THERE don’t get it, they never will. It’s sad, because that’s a beautiful state, & I know several folks who just fled to other states. Michigan is the end result of Dems policies when allowed to do them, & it does’nt work.

What *is* it with unions that they all have morbidly obese morons as their leadership/spokesmen? While I can understand a little middle age spread, EVERY single one of these guys looks like he’d splatter if you punched him.

The reason these mafioso union mooks all look like Jabba the Hutt is because they’ve been living like royalty off the dues paid in by the peon membership of the union.

I wonder how you say, in Chinese, “Look for the Union Label, when you are buying the clothes that you wear…”?

Cuz you see you big jackass Richard, you people have driven all the jobs overseas!

I bet he makes about $600,000 per year….

Trumka — living proof that it is impossible to fire union leaders for incompetence.

I have a better idea than the unions/gov’t taking over business. How about the government take over the unions. After a few weeks of stellar government management, they should go away.
