Take Out That Nose Ring

Malkin links to a story about an outrageous bit of behavior.

My first ten years after graduating college were spent slinging books at a Pittsburgh area Borders. There was no official policy on employees' political views, yet I often felt like the token Republican on the staff. No one ever went out of their way to make me feel uncomfortable about it, but I always had an uneasy sense of being behind enemy lines.

The emailer whose comments appear in Michelle's "Update II" speaks for the few of us who were immune to any leftish influences from coworkers, outside union agitators, or the corporation itself. Even most libs on our staff voiced objections when Borders announced partnerships with the NEA and with, neither of which lasted more than a year or two.

My advice is for Michelle's correspondent would be to get the hell out of that place before she goes NUTS. Unless she can advance herself into a position where she can influence the way things are done around there.

Caution! These are the sentiments of a bunch of union agitators. Have a look around their website..oh, the hatred. I had to avert my eyes!

Nothing would please this crew more than to see Borders suffer. Instead of boycotting Borders, I'd suggest a sound trashing of the Borders union on our websites.

Perhaps it would assist Borders in their negotiating contracts with these ungrateful slugs.

What a bummer, I was too late. When you click on Michelle's "read the whole thing" it brings you to a halting disclaimer that the Borders people have put together. Looks like they didn't want their site to crash. Ahhh....the power of the internet that Gore invented.
