Chicago EPA Union to Members: Boycott Tourism in WI, FL. A Metropolis Maybe

(Also Ohio, but what's there? Dennis Kucinich? Um, Cleveland?) Don't go to the Dells or DisneyWorld, no, no, no.

Stay in Illinois.

I have a suggestion. You public employee union members can follow the path of your "public servant" heroes, the WI Fleebaggers, as they camped out at a swanky resort in Rockford, or pretended to be a choral group in Republican McHenry County. (Perhaps a pilgrimage to Metropolis, though you may be disappointed as there's no real deal.)

Better yet, head to Urbana where the Indiana Fleebaggers hung out--with unions picking up their tab, it turns out.

I suggest you ask what happened to your dues? Is your pension fully funded?

And consider this--Wisconsin Gov. Walker's biggest reform is stopping automatic collection of union dues out of public employee paychecks, saving $1,000 or so for a member right there.

So who's really looking out for your interests, hmm?

As for the price of gas going up, well, it's the highest in the country in Chicago, a few blocks from the start of old Rte. 66. I think it might have something to do with the lack of drilling, EPA, gas taxes--and that silly EPA boutique gas mandate in Chicago.
Federal regulations divided the gas market into 17 small monopolies, all with their own recipe of gasoline. In Chicagoland, drivers are allowed to only buy "Chi-Mi

N/RFG" gas. This ‘boutique' fuel policy creates monopolies and high fuel prices.

If you still want to leave the state, why not take a busman's holiday to D.C.--and picket your boss at the White House.

...Yes, how do you like that Obamaflation, EPA union members? If you need an explanation of inflation, go here.

Speaking of the EPA, I actually came across an article today that I think you may or may not have seen already, but it sheds a pretty good light on the current situation with the EPA and the “Haze Plan” that some seem to be pushing. Either way, it just came out in the Albuquerque Journal and is ranked as one of the top current articles regarding the EPA, so I thought I’d share it with you nonetheless. If you’re up for a glance, here’s a link http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=93P42TS46AM&preview=article&linkid=a2c15c0c-b9ae-4983-afac-9715fc90ded9&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d

Have a good one!
