Knowing that, left alone, the title of this post would cause much consternation, we provided the “humor warning” to ensure there is no confusion that this is a spoof*:
Obama Signs Executive Order Granting Unions Religious Status
Newly appointed labor appointee Craig Pecker, sporting a gold fez and holding the spear of destiny, pulled President Obama out of his pocket long enough for him to sign an executive order to grant Labor Unions religious status.
Political experts were shocked at the act but not because it was audacious, insulting, and/or ridiculous. Their confusion came from the fact that Obama had already done this with his first executive order, once inaugurated, over a year ago and just moments before he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize.
Mr. Obama said something about his campaign pledge for transparency and yes we see right through you Mr. President. Mr. Becker allowed interviews but only after a sizable donation and threats of broken arms.
