AFSCME e-UpdateSorry, but I must say, in no disrespect but, in all earnesty. Observations like the one you use at the end of your post Daniel, strikes me as being very possibly, a misguided missile! ----- Original Message ----- From: Daniel Ben Moshe To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, January 06, 2011 4:49 PM Subject: [tabi] Re: a forwarded warning to all government workers This is very good I like the afscme, they are well known for doing Civil Rights work with the late Dr. King. As a conservative Republican I believe that when workers are being abused of we must stand up. Especially because so many of our people who are Blind, and visually impaired work for government agencies right now. They want to privatize everything, but that is no guarantee that workers will receive proper wages especially now a days. So yes I do believe that this is something that we must stay alert to, because we can't afford to get behind the eight ball on this one. We must also understand that the country is very angry right now, and they do at times seek to take out that anger on the wrong people disabled and disadvantaged among us. I'm glad to be your humble and obedient servant, Zechen Elder Daniel Ben Moshe, B'ni Yahshuah Synagogue Of Broward County, www.theblindcansee.org Choose ye this day whom you will serve. If YHWH be Elohim, then serve him, with all of your heart. However, if Baal be your god, then serve him. As for me, and my house. We choose to serve YHWH! The late Bishop Joe O Patterson told a story long ago, when I was a small child. about the show down, between Elijah, and the 450 false prophets of Baal. He shared with us how Elijah, stood, and told the false prophets to go on ahead,and call their god first. Because they had a much larger program. He talked about how they had 450 participants to introduce. Elijah was so sure of YHWH, he with confidence said, that he only had one. Elijah also reminded them, that they had to drag their fake god up the mountain side on an ox cart. Elijah also announced to the world, that his Elohim would be there when he arrived. He said mockingly, you go on ahead. Heck, I will even let you have prime time. I'M going to take a nap, and when you guys finish your foolishness, wake me up. Go ahead now, take your best shot.

When you see or read articles about the attacks on us, weigh in on the comments section. These comments influence others and can help get our message out. Dear Sisters and Brothers: Public service workers are under an unprecedented attack. That quote by the new governor of Wisconsin is one example of the attacks we are facing across the nation. The New York Times ran an article this week on the challenges we are facing, particularly from Republican governors and legislators who see long-term advantages in destroying the labor movement and public sector unions. You can read the article here. Also this week, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show had a segment about the efforts of right-wing politicians and media to scapegoat our members. It's an excellent analysis of these efforts and we encourage you to watch it. Click here to view. These attacks are brutal and they are just the beginning. Every day there are more calls by our opponents for budget and tax cuts, the privatization of public services and the elimination of our collective bargaining rights. We are fighting back to make sure that our side of the story gets out. Last month, we brought together 200 AFSCME activists, local leaders and retirees to meet with key experts and allies at a pension conference in Washington, DC. AFSCME activists and outside experts discussed the challenges we face, shared best practices and developed innovative messages and strategies to defend our modest pensions against this unprecedented assault. You can read more about the pension conference here. Last month, we also launched the first in what will be a series of video responses to "Stop the Lies" against public service employees. Make no mistake. This is an all-out war on public services and the men and women who provide them. It is the fight of our lives. And to meet the challenge we need every AFSCME member to engage in this struggle together. In solidarity, GERALD W. McENTEE President LEE A.
