Boeing has a right to build a factory anywhere it chooses. Boeing needed a new plant to produce more 787 Dreamliners and built a $750 million facility in South Carolina, which is one of 22 right-to-work states. Workers cannot be forced to join a union as a condition of employment.
Acting NLRB General Counsel Lafe Solomon, an Obama appointee, does Obama's bidding and claims that, by building the plant in the Palmetto State, Boeing "retaliated against union workers. Obama's other recess appointment, Craig Becker is also another Obama waterboy on the National Labor Relations Board. Becker served as a a top union lawyer and has argued that workers should not have any right to opt out of union representation. He also counseled a large local union founded as a subsidiary of the corrupt Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), another favorite of Obama.
No jobs in Washington are being transferred to South Carolina; in fact, Boeing's Washington facility gained 2,000 jobs. That was not good enough for Obama and his NLRB is suing Boeing and trying to stop their production in South Carolina. That is hard to believe even for the shit-bird sitting in The White House. It is stupid politics and the Democrats will come out badly for this autocratic overreach.

THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.
