The footage has inspired public disgust since it was first aired by KING-TV news. Rightfully so, too. But can you guess who wants to replace Olympic guards as a new security for Metro? Here's a hint from Barack Obama:
Obama said: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
Which union was it that Obama has very close ties with? It's a union that Barack Obama has made a pledge to help, to give them more power and strength to eventually "Paint the nation purple." It's big government, union corruption at its finest: 'SEIU! SEIU! SEIU!'
The Seattle Times reported, "The Service Employees International Union Local 6 issued a statement Wednesday framing the attack as a reason SEIU should represent the Olympic guards. It already represents Securitas."
SEIU researcher Emily Sokolski made the following statement.
"Security guards this week have mentioned their frustration at standing back. [Metro guards] don't have the tools to intervene, at this point. They don't have self-defense training in how to intervene in a physical altercation. They would not only be in danger, but they would be in danger of losing their jobs."
Now, I'll let you decide what to make of this clear push for more power. I would like to ask, however, the same question that Glenn Beck pointed out: Why do we need a civilian national security force that is "just as strong, just as powerful" as the military?
What's wrong with a simple policy change to the current private security force already in place? Why does the SEIU (the image of corruption) need to be a civilian military force? If the SEIU Local 6 gets their wish and takes over to represent the Olympic guards for Metro, the system is doomed to fail. Something will be clearly wrong. It will cause more problems than solutions. That's a promise Obama will never admit.
Being that I live in Seattle, which is basically in the heart of the Pacific coasts' movement toward socialism, it's like I get a front row seat to watch and experience the slow dismantling of freedom and liberty, massive increases in taxes and debt, and of course the SEIU and other unions soaking up more power to fight against capitalism.
I remember when it used to be, "If you don't like America, go live somewhere else." But, unfortunately, it's gotten so bad here in Seattle, Washington that I now consider, "Since I don't like living in a socialist state, should I move elsewhere?" I do love Texas.
