Wall Street closed while union men and women answered the call

No school talk from me today, but a lesson just the same readers.

Did you noticed when Storm Sandy hit our shores who came our to help? It was Union member first responders who left their own families, their own homes to serve and protect the public. Mayor Bloomberg, Governors Malloy, Como, and Christie all called upon union nurses, union police officers, union firefighters, and union Port Authority workers. Mayor Bloomberg even asked teachers to help at the emergency shelters, and many answered the call.

Remember this lesson on Election Day. Unions made this nation, and unions have never failed to answer the call to duty. When those natural disasters get tough union workers have always answered the call. 
Wall Street ran home, and closed shop for two days. Told the world markets to hold their breath. Our bankers and brokers ran home knowing that “all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again” While our union boys and girls answered their call to duty just like they did on 9-11.
You can bet your life on this one truth America. It will be our union brothers and sisters that will pick up the pieces, and build it all up again. It will be union made, and union strong.
Remember this come Election Day the enemy is not unions, but politicians and billionaires who claim union members make too much money, and their pensions cost too much. Meanwhile not one politician or billionaire is complaining that CEOs make 475 dollars for every dollar the average working person makes. When the skies clear Governor Christie and his fellow republicans will once again design new ways to weaken first responder pensions, but not one of those Wall Street golden parachutes will be harmed by them. After all you certainly don't want class warfare. Welcome to the war on the middle class!  
Love my union bothers and sisters,

I am listening to Bruce Springsteen's Wrecking Ball on my walk today feeling grateful to all my union bothers and sisters who answered the call to duty during Storm Sandy.
