Since when did political gridlock represent leadership?
Since 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has operated under a series of 21 short-term budget extensions. On September 16th, this agency is threatened with yet another shutdown.
Why is organized labor still under attack in this country. Whether or not you are for or against unions, when it comes to the FAA's budget, why has this specific agency become the target of a political agenda?
Did you know that in China, Wal-Mart employees are organized? That's right, in a country which does not promote, support or even officially sanction organized labor (beyond membership in the Communist Party), the Chinese workers at 125 plus Wal-Mart stores are unionized.

"We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers salaries and take away their right to strike." ~ Adolf Hitler (May 2, 1933)
