I am a member of IATSE 917 . Yesterday I took part in giving out food at the local food drive at Bader Field in Atlanta City. I was appalled to find this in one of the boxes. It’s pure propaganda. This should not be inflicted on people who are in need. The President is once again misguiding people by trying to take credit for the food distribution.

As a proud union worker from a union family, I understand the importance of supporting worker’s rights. But Chris Smith, R-NJ 04, voted against the HEROES Act and pushes an agenda outside of labor-specific issues that is harmful to members. Working families in NJ could do better. Stephanie Schmid will support labor rights not in a vacuum, but in a way that encompasses all of what NJ families need.
BIDEN IS BEST to DEFEAT TRUMP May 1, 2019 Biden has the best chance by far to defeat Trump. Certainly he can win over the working class white voters who comprise most of Trump’s base. He can also get crossover endorsements from moderate Republicans and as President work with Republicans in the Senate, having been a respected Senator for 36 years. As Vice President for eight years, he worked closely with President Obama, who entrusted him with serious tasks, unlike Trump’s prop Pence. Biden is tough and effective in debates, and could stand up to Trump, unlike Bernie Sanders- who is too easily flustered and belabors his 1 % issue too long. None of the other Democratic primary candidates have the status or experience of Biden, who can get funding and support from Democrats across the board. Biden is also well known and respected among world leaders and is the best person to repair the damage Trump has done to our international standing. He will be able to counter Russian transgressions into our democracy. Biden is a rational person who will govern as the Constitution and the rule of law requires, and not as a tyrant like Trump. Biden also has the ability to run the government efficiently and to unify the nation and heal the wounds that Trump created and exploited. We must unify as an electorate and ensure that an honorable and competent President will be elected in 2020. In short, if we have 20-20 vision, Biden is our best bet.

Is there something that can be done about this? https://www.facebook.com/MyPayMySay/
A question about an interesting thing Herd happened over the Memorial day week-end wondering if anyone has any input on it? If state Senator Sweeney and Mr Nor-cross Were to Buy the NJ Carpenters Union through a Pa Shell Co. over the Memorial day weekend! Fire the president of said Union! Start bringing in people from other states to fill the jobs of workers of said union would that not be a crime by said State senator of conflict of interest against both said Union and the state of NJ? Another Question would be by buying this union would this not also be an attempt at controlling NJ voter base as this would be a form of voter suppression? Being this is what was herd to have happen just that weekend and if True is it not also an attempt to destroy the same union? A BIGGER Question is why is this not being addressed in the state level? Herd this happened and was wondering what you herd
