Oregon Governor Kulongoski Causes A Ship Wreck For Oregon Economic Development
No nasty, polluting, job-creating ship wrecking business is welcome to set up shop in the purity of Oregon's aquatic environment. So sayeth the Guv. And he means it, too...tough environment protecting steward that he is...
Unfortunately, Governor Kulongoski didn't have the good sense to avoid wasting the time and money of the company that his Oregon Economic Development Department enticed into considering Oregon for its business expansion.
We want jobs in Oregon. No, not Wal-Mart jobs, not logging jobs, not nucleur power plan jobs, and certainly not ship-wrecking jobs. Just go work at that organic food store or something.
What a failure of a governor, why the unions will support him after this is beyond me. Oh wait, it's because that's how the unions get their power. They don't care about the rank-and-file. They don't care that hundreds of possible union jobs just got turned away.
So let me rephrase: why the union members will continue to vote for this guy is beyond me, I hope that they don't.
