Yet Another Reason that Union Members are National Security Risks

As you know, the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Departments have declared that certain federal employees are not allowed to join unions for national security and "flexibility" reasons. Apparently taking his cue from the Administration (as if he needed a cue), Congressman Tom Delay (R-TX), in a letter he accidentally signed for the National Right-to-Work Foundation, declared that labor unions present “a clear and present danger to the security of the United States at home and the safety of our armed forces overseas.”

None of these clowns could come up with any good reasons why unions might be national security threats, so as a patriotic service to ensure the security of my homeland, I'm helping them out from time to time by contributing reasons that unions and union members are most likely national security risks.

Reason 1: The AFL-CIO reports that "In New York, Civil Service Employees Association/AFSCME Local 1000 was the choice for 100 food service workers employed by Sodexho at the State University of New York-New Paltz, with a card-check on March 25." Sodexho, as you may remember (see April 1 entry below) is owned by those dasterdly, traitorous, cowardly snail-eating French.

Reason 2: U.S. Labor Against the War. (Need I say more?)
