I do not think that either candidate will come out against the mandatory licensing of plumbers, but here is the real scoop on Joe:
Thomas Joseph, the business manager of Local 50 of the United
Association of Plumbers, Steamfitters and Service Mechanics, based in
Toledo, said Thursday that Mr. Wurzelbacher had never held a plumber’s
license, which is required in Toledo and several surrounding
municipalities. He also never completed an apprenticeship and does not
belong to the plumber’s union, which has endorsed Mr. Obama. On
Thursday, he acknowledged that he does plumbing work even though he
does not have a license.
Not only that, he calls himself Joe but his real name is Samuel. He also owes back taxes. I wonder if he has ever hired illegal immigrants to help him out. Yes the Republican Party is ******* and I will not vote for them, but how many Democratic politicians will speak out against the coercive restraints placed on Joe (Samuel)? That’s a serious question.
Addendum: As is often the case, those few of you who are mad at me simply haven’t
read the post carefully enough. Just for a start, I’m not at all
criticizing the guy for calling himself Joe rather than Samuel. I was
making fun of those people who are upset by this. Some of you are
committing other misunderstandings as well. By the way, here are details on Toledo and licensing.
