A Campaign Against Unions

In Day 45 of the pro-Blum, House, Horton and Channing letter to the editor hostage crisis, her man at De la Guerra continues his campaign against unions with an editorial about apparent union control of candidates for council. Does he forget that the Police Officers Association is a union, too -- how about their $12,000 influence over Council Member Falcone? Is it just the progressive unions you are against Travis?

As some of our readers pointed out, it is interesting that during the debate on Prop 75 at council the other day -- Sgt. McGrew didn't express opposition on Prop 75 even though PORAC is very much against it. Was it really about supporting Falcone? More interesting was the editorials saying she was into "civil discourse" on the same day she was reported telling Council Member Williams that he "thought a great deal of himself".

As for his attacks on Council Member Horton -- Armstrong should take into account that maybe the pictures in question were used without his knowledge -- happens all the time in politics. The Rev. Horton heat certainly does benefit from the positions that everyone else has taken -- that doesn't mean that he can manage what other interests do with those endorsements all the time.

Is that opposed to the unprogressive unions? Keep being divisive, you are making a lot of people very happy.

My gosh, don't you ever take on and write about the bigger picture? Is this site just the picking of needles and forgetting that the haystack is sideways?

We gives a * ! # @ about the unions. In a small town we care about the union members. You tell me Walt and Ed give a damn about any one or any thing but their job and future and I will vote for the slugger.

The media and community is not anti union we are anti self interest.

Well, this is clearly an unresponsive web site.
No dialogue.
There are other Santa Barabara blogs.
Good luck.

What are the other Santa Barbara blogs?

Seems to me, a casual and fairly recent reader of it, that this site is quite responsive!

Also -- thanks, I agree. There aren't many others and I think one of the consistent anonymous posters should start their own too. We are all the better for it.

why are the only unions that are active in these campaigns at all just those who eat and drink off the taxpayers?

Where has Das gone the last few days? Once he figured he was about to lose on his slate he got very quiet.

The best line of the entire week was when Iya stated that Williams thought a great deal of himself. He does and that will be his down fall. It has been written here over and over that this election is about the Slugger's paranoia and Das ambition. But it is more about Das's arrogance.

One can only imagine that the indecent post was in responce to the Das arrogance statement above. That is a typical responce from the Das, Walt and Ed.

But it does raise the issue - where is the Das? Has he gotten tangled up in his puppet strings and cannot get up?
