I Rant and Rave about our so-called “family-friendly” Republican legislature, in many articles, because they lie to us, and are not really family-friendly, and they have devoted themselves legislatively to destroying the few Missouri Employee Rights that you possess.

“Family-friendly” generally means “Republican” — “Family-friendly” is the nonsense they spout off to get you to vote for them — These guys are opposed to the interests of working people — Get wise and vote for people who support your interests

Your current Democratic Governor Jay Nixon is standing almost SOLO against these wackoids — Congrats to the Gov for his steadfast support of YOUR Missouri Employee Rights — But there is only so much he can do — Help him, please.

Is it more “family-friendly” to help the working man, or is it more “family-friendly” to hurt the working man? The answer is clear.

In article after article I complain about how our Republican “family-friendly” legislature screws us — please take me at my word, because I am one of the types of people who would know these types of things — They are screwing us royally while being lapdogs for big commercial interests who donate lots of money to their campaigns — And I can prove it using laws.

The business managers of companies who order their organizers to push for anti-worker laws should be ashamed of themselves for hurting Missourians.

It’s nasty out here in the trenches folks. The Republican Legislature really is coming after us, and they have a lot of support by people who don’t care enough about Employee Rights.

Regardless of what these Republican Legislators tell us they intend to do, they intend to unprotect you legally and screw your family, probably to benefit business donors to their campaigns.

And the Republicans are trying very hard to weaken your employee rights as we speak — And they lie to you to get your vote, proclaiming themselves as “family-friendly”, when they know they want to be another thing in office. Don’t be so gullible.

These Republican Legislators are bad for Missouri workers (but good for the Chamber of Commerce possibly) — If you vote for them, you are voting against your interests. I challenge any of them to debate me on this point. But they don’t have the courage most likely.

Ask yourself — Is it better for working people to be protected, or is it better for working people to be unprotected? — The answer is pretty clear.
So why do you keep supporting these wackoids, who are so dedicated to hurting you?
They are working against you very hard in the background
while claiming to be for you.
Trust me on this.

Stop being hoodwinked by these right-wing Republican jerks, and vote for people who have your interests at heart — You will reap benefits from your choice, and the common working people of Missouri will too.

Those elected wackoids that we have right now would kill your right to workers compensation and unemployment if they could, and they have hurt your rights already as much as they could, believe me —And they currently are trying very hard to take away your ability to win a discrimination case. — Lawyers are trying to fight back by hiring professional lobbyists, using the war chests from our dues to various organizations, and also using our personal labor. — This is how sausage is made — It is ugly. Help.

The right wing Republican wackoids are not the friends of working people. And I am just naming a very few of the things that are on their wackoid agenda that most of us would disagree with. (For example, we like the right to birth control, but THEY don’t — etc, etc, etc — they are wackoids and are opposed to your Employee Rights)

Once in a while I hear from the legislative research aids of these wackoids — I cut them no slack and do not give an inch — But I am willing to listen to reason, yet I hear nothing reasonable from these dedicated right-wing wackoids — YOU have to do it.

If you like your rights, or want more rights, then DO SOMETHING to make it happen. You cannot possibly improve your rights by voting for the right-wing wackoids. But you can influence the wackoids by calling their offices.

Good luck — there is not much more that I can do except raise your awareness and let nature take its course.

End of rant.
