Climate Change, Correlation, Causation and gullible people


Once again, we see the public employee unions attempting to legally bribe politicians with promises of campaign support for future “quid pro quo” deals that disadvantage the taxpayers and residents.

According to the Los Angeles Times … 

Labor leaders have plans of their own. Working Californians, a political action committee tied to the union that represents Department of Water and Power employees, has announced plans for an independent spending campaign on behalf of four council candidates. Last year, the DWP union spent $527,000 in just one race, the election to replace Councilwoman Janice Hahn. More than a third went to the man who ultimately won, Joe Buscaino, records show.

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, looking to extend its City Hall influence, is backing seven candidates. One goal for the county labor group is to secure an ordinance requiring large hotels across Los Angeles to pay a "living wage." It also wants city leaders to spend more on renewable energy — wind, solar and geothermal power — and impose new regulations on commercial trash companies, from the types of trucks they use to how much their employees earn. The federation is looking to bring four more state lawmakers to the council, for a total of seven representatives who previously served in Sacramento — more than at any time in city history. "Los Angeles needs a council that will have the courage to move forward with initiatives that benefits workers," said Maria Elena Durazo, the federation's top official, in a statement.

The socialist unions are a clear and present danger to Los Angeles, California and the nation as the support continuing corruption of public officials, demand sweetheart deals – wages, benefits and pensions that are bankrupting municipalities and states – as well as supporting an unlawful illegal alien invasion to confer economic, social and political advantages to a foreign sovereign power.

Bottom line …

Enough is enough. Unions have now corrupted the political process and should be eliminated from organizing public employees. They have destroyed education, increased taxes and reduced services.
