Prop. 32's real purpose is to cripple labor unions politically

SACRAMENTO Proposition 32 is stark proof that often you can tell a ballot initiative by its cover.

---

Even a cursory look at Prop. 32 shows that it's about a covey of special interests from the right attacking a rival interest on the left, organized labor.

If backers had turned their initiative into an honest debate about curtailing labor muscle specifically the influence of public employee unions they would have deserved more serious consideration.

But by deciding to phony it up crafting what they perceived to be the best marketing pitch based on public opinion surveys they've created a laugher and an insult to the voters' intelligence.

7. Yes, DU admins clearly have a secret RW agenda



DU doesn't choose the ads--they're supplied by Google Adsense based on keywords.

For contributing ('Star') DU members the ads are blocked. Kick in a small contribution and you won't see the ads.
