being very possibly, a misguided missile!

  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,
  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.
  Bishop Joe O Patterson
  A blessed memory

  thanks everyone for the encouragement; you know, I hated to be seen allowing 
just myself to break the rules; but as it seems ok, here's the message, which 
is a warning and a plan for all those who hold government jobs:

              "We can no longer live in a society where the public employees 
are the haves and taxpayers who foot the bills are the have-nots," - Scott 
Walker, new governor of Wisconsin

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 

                     LEE A. SAUNDERS
