Longshoreman strife affects Alaska

Posted: December 31, 2012 - 10:11am

What happens when the Longshoremen are told by their union to go on strike?

There will be no milk for the babies of Alaska. I find that quite alarming.

I think the Governor has money to throw around, like giving tickets for people outside of Anchorage to support a basketball tournament. I think that you could find things daily that the Governor promotes which could be better applied to something like ensuring milk for the citizens of Alaska. I am very curious about all the High School sport teams traveling to the Lower 48 to play out there. That is a very expensive operation I am sure. I realize that poor operations contribute to the problem of the dairy and make them unable to reimburse the state.

The opinion of this Old Timer, born at the bottom of the Great Depression, is that politicians really don’t care that much about the citizens.

Well laid plan

As i have said before it is a well laid plan for the demise of America as well as the entire Global society. Remember when BO said he was not an American, but, a citizen of the world? Well his Field of Dreams is for ALL THE WORLD to be a UNION ONE OF GLOBAL CITIZENS.
Yes this strike will do exactly what is desired by BO and his Union followers, PUSH AMERICA OFF THE CLIFF into economic collapse which in turn will push the rest of the Globe off the very same cliff of economic collapse and the crys will arise from all the worlds people for a Savior. Send us a man or devil who has enough clout to deliver us all from this economic morass and we will accept him wholeheartedly. Sounds like Revelation 13; to me about whats coming for the End of Days.
Massive troubles everywhere so stock up on supplies while we still get them, because that supply line will be cut off and then what? Mass Civil unrest and collapse of society into a desired Revolution & total governmental control of all, with obedient Members only allowed to continue on in their desire society of like minded sheeple.
God help us all for our desire to remove God from our lives for all these false saviors and their hopelessness for all.

Of Course They Don't Care!

The job description for politicians is (1) Be a Good Liar. (2) Gather All the Money You Can for Media Attention. (3) Do NOT Think For Yourself Under Any Circumstance. (4) Pass On Any Bills ALEC Hands You. (5) Value Any and All Corporations As Your Bosses.

Easy to be a politician if you are a person w/o a heart. soul, and certainly, a brain. A fat wallet is a must.
