September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Unions Suffer Sharp Decline in Membership

Thats actually a really good thing

The nation's labor unions suffered sharp declines in membership last year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Wednesday, led by losses in the public sector as cash-strapped state and local governments laid off workers and — in some cases — limited collective bargaining rights.

The union membership rate fell from 11.8 percent to 11.3 percent of all workers, the lowest level since the 1930s.

Total membership fell by about 400,000 workers to 14.4 million. More than half the loss — about 234,000 — came from government workers including teachers, firefighters and public administrators.

The losses add another blow to a labor movement already stretched thin by fighting efforts in states like Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan to curb bargaining rights and weaken union clout.

But unions also saw losses in the private sector, even as the economy expanded modestly. That rate fell of membership fell from 6.9 percent to 6.6 percent, a troubling sign for the future of organized labor, as job growth has generally taken place at nonunion firms.

"To employers, it's going to look like the labor movement is ready for a knockout punch," said Gary Chaison, professor of industrial relations at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. "You can't be a movement and get smaller."

Unions have steadily lost members since their peak in the 1950s, when about one of every three workers was in a union. By 1983, roughly 20 percent of American workers were union members.

Yes, certainly good news. For years and years, these unions were really the opposite side of the Hegelian Dialectic they played with Capitalism/big business.

Ultimately, the damage has already been done, as our debt-ridden economy is at a tipping point and socialism/communism is really being set up now.

WI Gov Scott Walker has been put on a pedestial b/c of his (successful, supposedly)war against unions. Not that I'm saying he's doing anything wrong, but nonetheless it's always good to cross-check these guys before buying into anything the MSM and the "establishment" says.(a lot like the Bereans in Acts that searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so)

Wisconsin ranks 34th in job creation

Wisconsin ranks 34th in private-sector job creation over most recent 12-month period


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin ranked 34th in private-sector job creation over the past 12-month period ending in March, adding 24,000 private sector jobs in that time, data released Thursday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed.

The figures are a key benchmark, picked by Gov. Scott Walker, to measure how well he is meeting his 2010 campaign promise to add 250,000 private sector jobs by 2015. He's nowhere close to meeting the pledge. Through his first two years in office, only 63,000 jobs were created, putting Wisconsin on pace to only get about halfway to the goal.

As has become the practice with every release of new data showing Wisconsin lagging the nation, Democrats jumped on the figures to argue it shows Walker's policies are failing. Walker, meanwhile, said the latest numbers show the state's economy is headed in the right direction.

"These numbers show we're making significant progress, and they don't yet include the best summer Wisconsin's had in 23 years," Walker said in a statement. "This is good news, but our work isn't finished. Our number one focus has been on helping the people of this state create jobs, and that will remain our focus each day moving forward."

Walker and Republican legislative leaders earlier this week introduced a package of eight economic development bills for the Legislature to take up later this year. Walker said those proposals, which largely build on existing programs, would go a long way toward him meeting his campaign promise.

But Democratic Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca criticized the proposals as insignificant, and said the latest jobs figures show Republican policies are failing. Republicans took control of both houses of the Legislature in 2011, the same year Walker took office.

"Wisconsin lags much of the nation in job growth because Gov. Walker and legislative Republicans have spent the past two and a half years undermining workers, public schools and people who need health care instead of focusing on jobs and improving economic prospects for middle-class families," Barca said in a statement.

The latest BLS numbers show that between March 2012 and March 2013, Wisconsin added 24,305 private sector jobs. That was 1.1 percent growth, roughly half the national growth rate of 2 percent. Illinois, which had 1 percent growth, was the only neighboring state that fared worse.

Private sector jobs grew by 2.8 percent in Michigan, 2.1 percent in Minnesota, and 1.2 percent in Iowa.

Walker faces re-election next year and is considering a run for president in 2016. Walker remains a popular draw at Republican fundraisers and other events across the country as he continues to raise his profile in advance of a possible presidential bid.

Walker's liberal critics say he's spending too much time outside of the state instead of focusing on Wisconsin's economy.

"Based on the latest report of sub-par job performance by Gov. Walker it's clear the only 250,000 number he'll achieve in his term is 250,000 frequent flier miles," said Scot Ross, director of the liberal advocacy group One Wisconsin Now.
