So if an employer decides that certain employees, like blacks or gays cannot be considered for promotions, you're saying that is of no concern for unions? And what is "traditional labor law"?

The project is NOT at a standstill. They are still working on the north and south approaches to the tunnel, work that can continue even if the tunnel machine is not tunneling.

The Old Town that was replaced in this spot was already a period piece.

Your math is wrong, or are you assuming that McGinn only ever had 39,000 supporters maximum? It was a primary, the field was crowded, as it is with elections everywhere. Once the field is narrowed, voters who voted for losing candidates switched their allegiances.

McGinn didn't win the mayorship in August, he won in November with 105,000 votes, which is a bit less than 1/3 of the number of eligible voters. The second place candidate received 98,000 votes, so turnout was 57%, not a bad number for an off-year election.
Nov 15, 2012 donarb commented on No Matter How Many Times He Says It, Sam Reed Is Still Wrong: Moving the Ballot Deadline Cannot Possibly Speed Election Results.
Ballots cannot be counted before election day. There was a lawsuit about 15 years ago in Pierce county where they were counting absentee ballots ahead of time so they could announce these results along with the results from the polling places on election night. Election workers can only verify signatures before Election Day, counting cannot happen until after the polls close.

Mar 14, 2012 donarb commented on The Resignation Letter Everyone's Talking About This Morning.
The letter reminds of the recent movie "Margin Call" with Kevin Spacey. The movie is loosely based on the 2008 Wall Street meltdown. Spacey's character is ordered to liquidate a worthless portfolio, selling it off to their best customers. He argues with his boss (played by Jeremy Irons), he can't believe no realizes that no one will buy anything ever again from his firm. The boss doesn't care about the future, only about getting rid of the current problem in less than 24 hours. The movie is really good, Iron's speech about the amorality of capitalism is worth watching alone.

Wow, talk about thwarting the will of the people. So far, over 3500 people have illegally "voted" by signing more than once or lying about their voter status. Any calls from the fringe about prosecuting these "voter Irregularities"? Didn't think so...
