Over the weekend news and video surfaced that the former HSV Swift, which had been leased to MSC for 10 years from 2003-2013 and is currently owned by Emirates-based UAE Marine Dredging Company but was chartered by the United Arab Emirates military for coastal transport, was sunk after a missile attack by Houthis rebels.

SEIU may have to pay back millions after SCOTUS ruling

 Looks like between this and citizens united the playing field is finally going to be leveled. The unions have thugged and bought candidates into office since their inception. It is amazing that it took up until now to reign them in. In Michigan, up until recently, if you did not pay your union dues the state Dept. of revenue came after you to collect. Talk about having politicians in your pocket. How many do you have to buy to set up a deal like that?    Now the unions are losing revenue streams left and right and hemorrhaging members like nobodies business. Couple that with the fact that corporations, including PACS and super PACS , can now give amounts equal to the unions and you can see that their influence is going to quickly wane. Oh yeah, and to top it off the crooked bastards are going to have to pay back all the money they stole. HAHAHA!      Commie bastards, I hope they go bankrupt.    BTW don’t support the UAW. They are open communists and they not only supported, but organized OWS events. Don’t buy any auto that has UAW workers. That means that all American makers are out. Buy a car that is built in America without the help of UAW.     I bought a new Nissan XTerra over the weekend and am quite pleased with it. It is built in the USA and which rich fat cat gets the final profit I couldn’t care less. Whether some Jap gets it or some ultra rich American doesn’t make a difference to me. All I know is USA working guys are getting a cut of the dough and they don’t have UAW hands in their pockets.
