The New Stupid Party?

      In Detroit, the UAW has for some years been allowing U.S. Marine reservists to park in the lot of their building, Solidarity House.  But there's been a change.  Now, reservists in "foreign" cars, or those with a Bush bumper sticker, are no longer welcome. (Hat tip: Lileks)

      What will they do to make unions more popular next?

      Update, 3/16/05: The UAW attempted to surrender to the Marine Corps on Mon. the 14th, but the Gyrenes weren't buying it:
Wounded by what they consider an unpatriotic ambush, the Marines rejected the union's olive branch and secured an alternative parking lot.

"I talked to Ron; I let him know that I understand he has rescinded his decision," said Lt. Col. Joe Rutledge, a top-ranking officer at the reserve infantry rifle battalion. "However, I've made my decision -- either you support the Marines or you don't."

      The story goes on to mention veterans and military who swear they'll buy a non-union car next time.

      Smooth move, UAW.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
