Earlier this year, I wrote about the UAW's unionization efforts at the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi. Casting Nissan as the villain, failed presidential candidate and current socialist Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders is stepping up his pressure on Nissan and its workers at the Canton plant.
Nissan's Canton plant employees are voting on whether or not to unionize on Thursday and Friday.
ABC News reports:
Workers at Nissan Motor Co.'s Mississippi assembly plant voted Thursday to decide whether to be represented by the United Auto Workers union.
Having worked their destructive magic in Detroit, the United Auto Workers union (UAW) has set its greedy sights on the South. Roundly rejected by Tennessee workers at a Volkswagen auto plant in 2014, the UAW picked itself up, dusted itself off, and redoubled its thirteen-year efforts at a Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi.
The South has long rejected unions, including the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers union who tried and failed to unionize Boeing workers in South Carolina last month. But the UAW is undeterred, even dragging avowed socialist and failed presidential candidate for the 2016 Democratic nomination down from Vermont to try to convince Mississippians that he—and the UAW—knows what is in their best interests.
I'm sick of writing this kind of "well, actually" post. They're required far too often, but this is the world in which we live. Media narrative wish casts one version of a story while the facts say another.
Such is the case (again) in the arson and vandalization of a black church in Mississippi.
An arrest has been made, reports the AP:
So, this is pretty gross, but to each her own (placenta smoothie). ::shudders::
After extensive research, pregnant Jordan Thiering decided she wanted to take the afterbirth (placenta) and whip it up in a smoothie. When she talked to her OBGYN, she was told to check with the delivering hospital. The hospital told her she would need a court order.
“I grew my baby, I grew my placenta,” Thiering said. “There should be no one that can tell me what I can or can’t do with it.”
