Nancy Pelosi’s really been gettin’ her Marxist on lately.

First, a little background on the situation from about six months ago:

In what may be the strongest signal yet of the new pro-labor orientation of the National Labor Relations Board under President Obama, the agency filed a complaint Wednesday seeking to force Boeing to bring an airplane production line back to its unionized facilities in Washington State instead of moving the work to a nonunion plant in South Carolina.

In its complaint, the labor board said that Boeing’s decision to transfer a second production line for its new 787 Dreamliner passenger plane to South Carolina was motivated by an unlawful desire to retaliate against union workers for their past strikes in Washington and to discourage future strikes. The agency’s acting general counsel, Lafe Solomon, said it was illegal for companies to take actions in retaliation against workers for exercising the right to strike.

Last Friday, Botoxi the Clown was asked if the National Labor Relations Board should be able to force Boeing to shut down that plant in South Carolina because it isn’t unionized, and you can guess what her answer was:

By Pelosi’s unionization standards this means the NLRB should also shut down next year’s Democratic National Convention.

Update: Naturally, select wineries would be exempt from Pelosi’s quest for government-mandated full unionization.

    And you can bet that what she *thinks* and has the chutzpah to say is somehow someway going to become (proposed) legislation at some point. I haven't read the entire Constitution, but does anyone know if there is anything therein that actually protects it from being systematically dismantled by the very bodies it was used to create?

    Well, didn't the Declaration of Constitution say something about our "… right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and to collectively bargain for wages, hours, benefits and healthcare insurance…"?!
    Duh!

    First, Botoxi the Clown, then the best I`ve heard for him, Slobba the Hut ! I`m lovin` it !

    NinnyNannyNan Piglousi is developing so truly impressive reverse-Midas touches herself. Keep pushin` that mandated union label there gal !

    I`m almost surprised she was able to get out the "Yes" after that Chrissy "Tingles" Matthews-esque barrage of questions from the reporteress !

    I`m looking for these restaurant owners to sue the occupiers for lost income, now that it has been reported that there`s a half Mil in the bank.
