Imagine A Silencer

Imagine A SilencerImagine A Silencer

Yes, imagine if we had an effective means to put a silencer on pernicious things like Hillary Clinton and the other Leftwing, anti-gun, Democrat politicians and, in Hillary’s sad case, ex-politicians with delusions of worth and relevance. It’d be great if we had a means to enforce some level of common decency in the wake of a tragedy such as the Las Vegas massacre – some way to apply a silencer to them until some appropriate time has passed for shock, prayers, and grieving before they are allowed to start profiteering off the horror.

Union Rules

The true test of one’s devotion to a principle or set of principles is how one reacts when the principle(s) in question is applied to one’s self. Truly, this test is an effective measure of a person, though it can have some “interesting” effects…

A dedicated Teamsters union worker was attending a convention in Las Vegas and decided to check out the local brothels. When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, Is this a union house?

“No,” she replied, “Im sorry it isnt.”

“Well, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?”

“The house gets $80 and the girls get $20,” she answered.

Offended at such unfair dealings, the union man stomped off down the street in search of a more equitable, hopefully unionized shop. His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded, “Why yes sir, this is a union house. We observe all union rules.”

The man asked, “And if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?”

“The girls get $80 and the house gets $20.”

“Thats more like it!” the union man said.

He handed the Madam $100, looked around the room, and pointed to a stunningly attractive blond.

“Id like her,” he said.

“Im sure you would, sir,” said the Madam.

Then she gestured to a 92-year old woman in the corner, “but Ethel here has 67 years seniority and according to union rules, shes next.”

The shop steward was more than a little shopworn. Definitely a case of the Teamster being hoist upon his own – or his union’s own – petard.

I’m guessing his continued support for his union’s seniority policies might be a little limp. 😆
