This is what Teamsters President Jim Hoffa said yesterday at a Labor Day Rally that The President attended that has the Tea Baggers crying in their tea cups:
"And you see it everywhere, it is the tea party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong."
Organized labor and the collective bargaining rights of workers are under assault and attack throughout the country by Tea Baggers and their leaders. There is certainly nothing wrong with fighting back. Get used to your mamma getting called out and shut up!
Filing for City of H-Town offices ends tomorrow at 5 pm and my pal Robert Miller is already making his predictions. Check it out here.
Here is a taste of what he says: “Annise Parker will be easily reelected to her second term.”

Commentary is not going to get into the prediction business – at least not now other than to say that those that end up running unopposed will easily get reelected.
Numero 45 leads the team in dingers this season with 14. When was the last time the team season leader in dingers hit less than 20? Also name the ‘Stro who did the leading.
There is an interesting story on the Toomey/Dude Super PAC that plans to spend around $55 million to get Dude the GOP nomination. Check it out.
Of course, how truly is it independent if Toomey is heading the Super PAC? How can we verify its independence? Can we look at their emails? Can we check their cell phones? Do we need to get a former MLBer who was good at stealing signs?
In 1992 of course Eric Anthony led the ‘Stros with 19 dingers.
‘Stros shortstop Clint Barmes would like to come back to play for the team next year. Here is from the ‘Stros website:
“I definitely would like to be a part of what they have going on. It’s going to be an interesting offseason, and I’m excited about that."
I certainly haven’t been excited watching the last four games – that’s for sure!
