Do you know what the EFCA is?

EFCA stands for the Employee Free Choice Act, and it is the controversial US federal bill that would change the way Unions can be formed in the workplace. This bill is so controversial that it is one of the reasons that the Republican Party is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the Minnesota Senate Recount going as long as possible (the Republicans oppose the bill, as they oppose all that is Union).

Having said that, it is very true that most people don’t really know diddly squat about the EFCA, yet most of the same ingoramouses (myself included1) manage to have an opinion about it. But that is no longer necessary, as Stephanie Zvan explains the bill RIGHT HERE.

1 Don’t even think about getting cute with me on this, or I’ll kick your ass out your left nostril. Sorry, I had to say that to counteract the effects of breaking Number One Rule of Blogging, which is Never Admit a Weakness or the Trolls Will Eat You.

    I think Republicans have done enough misuse of the English language (e.g. Clear Skies Act, PATRIOT Act) to title their bills that when a Democratic initiative comes along and the bill is titled in such a way that it’s an actual, appropriate title for the contents of the bill, the public is wary without having it laid out for them. I hope this informs the average American citizen better, for all your sakes.

    Also, the Washington Post seems to be approximately cat-box material, from what I can tell from this vantage point. Am I wrong on this? Is there anything good about it?

    Um. As I said on Stephanie’s comments, pattern recognition gone haywire, I’m seeing the Post when her blog mentions the Wall Street Journal.

    This is probably my favorite footnote of all time, Greg. May I borrow it? Giving you full credit of course!
