On Deep Sh–

Tom Donohue, head of the US Chamber of Commerce, has some strong words for the leftards trying to ramrod envirowhacko legislation up our already unemployed asses:

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue says a campaign by the White House and its allies to undermine his $200-million-a-year association has largely failed — and actually has helped raise even more money for its pro-business efforts.

In a 75-minute interview with POLITICO, Donohue dismissed recent defections by Apple and at least four other companies, which quit over the Chamber’s opposition to Democratic climate change legislation — as essentially meaningless. “Members come and go all the damn time,” he said.

That’s true. But rarely — if ever — have companies jumped ship in such a public way.

Donohue made plain he believes the White House, or at least its closest allies operating on the outside, are behind a very orchestrated campaign to embarrass and undermine the Chamber.

Under pressure from MoveOn.org and other groups, Apple, PG&E and Exelon have left the Chamber over the issue — and Nike resigned from its spot on the board. And pressure on others to follow suit is often intense.

Donohue refused to say if he believes the science behind global warming. “Is the science right? Is science not right? I don’t know,” he said.

What he does know, though, is that he’ll fight anything that the Chamber believes would unfairly harm business, especially if the Environmental Protection Agency moves forward, while Congress haggles, with its authority to regulate the release of greenhouse gases.

“If we got the EPA one, then we are in deep sh– as a country,” he said. “You want to see unemployment? You will see some.”

This, of course, is working under the assumption that the current administration does not want high unemployment so that the government can simply buy all of tomorrow’s unemployed votes with a handout and using the EPA to create just the kind of crisis they have the solution for.

Let the boycotts begin.  No Apple (no problem).  No Nike.  Correction here: PG & E not Proctor & Gamble as previously noted.


Heyyy, wait a second.  A lot of those products already  hurt the environment, use slave labor or directly benefit from climate hysteria legislation.   It’s almost like there’s a racket going on here.

  1. I’ve already been boycotting P and G for their advocation of many liberal policies and stances and their open support of liberal candidates. There are plenty of good replacements for P and G products.

  2. So some companies depart the US Chamber in disagreement over their stance on climate change, and you want to boycott those companies. You’re concerned about the impact climate change legislation may have on jobs and employment.

    How about adding Wal*Mart to your boycott list? Over the past couple decades, they’ve probably had more to do with elimination of American jobs than just about anybody! Whether it’s pricing mom-and-pop retail about of business or putting the screws on manufacturers to force prices (and quality) down and ship manufacturing overseas, the guys from Benton have not been kind to the American worker. And who got all those jobs? Commie Chinese!

    Still, I bet you won’t add them to your boycott, because while all those super-tankers are backing into US ports and dumping out vast landfills worth of cheap crap, Wal*Mart does pretend to be all about Christian Values, they boost share-holders’ ROI, and they loves the union-busting.

  3. James – corrected above.

    Wal-Mart really gets to be all things to all people. While they eliminate the so-called Mom & Pops that didn’t mind overcharging you for that same part they got from China, Wal-Mart then creates jobs. While they “put the screws” to those manufacturers, they then help ordinary Americans to afford things they might not otherwise be able to afford.

    And of course I have a problem with unions, they sold their own workers down the river. When times were good they lived high on the hog. When they made inferior products they drove their companies into the ground with their entitlements. And now that the jobs are bleeding away like a stuck pig, the unions fight to have illegal immigrants carve up it’s remains in hopes that amnesty will bring them another generation to fund the ponzi scheme.

    At the turn of the industrial revolution, unions saved workers from exploitation. By the last half of the century, the unions became the exploiters. Strikes and walk-outs while the companies who fed their families for generations couldn’t compete because unions made no concessions no matter the circumstance.

    What’s the old saying that “we don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of? Well, Wal-Mart has the plastic bucket for a dollar and Obama’s got you an $8,000 tax credit on a house you can’t afford.
