Field Negro (A Black man who refers to himself in 2011 using a "slave reference", and Co-founder of the Afro-Spear collaborative of Progressive who are Black bloggers) says the following with regards to the massive show of unity among law enforcement officers in New Jersey:
Filled Negro Blog: "Boys In Blue (Not Red)"
All of this, of course, was brought on because beckkk and company saw the massive showing of support from the boyz in blue up in Jersey for their union brothers and sisters, today. That was enough to scare any conservative out of his or her mind. Governor Krispy Kreme was nowhere in sight, and he called his own news conference where he called the union rally a "me first" rally. Nice.
In summary 12,000 present and former police officers and fire fighters came to a union rally to speak out against further cuts in their ranks as well as salary concessions as a means of balancing the state budget. (Another story says 6,000 to 7,000 people showed up)
I will now initiate a task by which I go around the nation, not to look for "KKK Snow Men" as was the case on some blogs a few months ago, but instead, to prove that in the past 4 years FAR MORE than 12,000 police and fire fighters were laid off in various "Mission Accomplished Cities" yet - There Were No Wildcat Protests in opposition.
The bottom line point I wish to make is that more damage to the "working people's interests" are being inflicted by the lack of ORGANIC PRODUCTIVITY inside of the city borders where "favorable people" now sit than is the case by any "anti-union" assault that is being claimed.
A List Of "Mission Accomplished Cities" and their lay off of Police and Fire:
To be clear - this is not a joking matter. People's livelihoods are at stake.
We can't look at the "Indictment that is before us". There is a need to consider the decisions that brought these cities to this place and how far their present standing is from the promises that were made with their respective "machines" rose to power.
