When President Obama stopped in at the Master Lock factory in Milwaukee Wisconsin Feb 15, 2012, he was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and people around him . “It is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as this union is ” – – – – pointing to the banner. He then said “a Union shop since 1848” – – – and then he went on to talk about what that banner stood for and how important it was to display it and show your union support.
The worker then said to Obama that this is the flag of the State of Wisconsin – – which was founded in 1848. This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130 am) and not by the Major news networks – – – they did not want to embarrass this – “got no clue” President . Since they didn’t do their job of reporting on this presidential visit, the only way for the news to get around is by us. We don’t take delight in pointing out stupidity especially from the office of our President, but there are times when one wonders just HOW BRIGHT THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS HANDLERS REALLY ARE !!! ???. HE CAN RADDLE OFF ALEDGED MUSLIM ACCOMPLISHMENTS, BUT HE APPEARS TO Â KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY HE IS PRESIDENT OF.
NO UNIONS YET IN 1848!
