Carol Elizabeth Pope, age 83, of Eureka, Kansas, passed away January 14, 2020 at the Eureka Nursing Center.  She was born January 28, 1936 in Dupree, South Dakota to Carl and Gerda Johnson.

Carol is survived by her husband, Leon Pope; her sons, Boyd (Tarah) Pope of Rose Hill, Kansas and Brian (Tallie) Pope of Fall River, Kansas; her grandchildren, Brandon (Melissa) Pope of Wichita, Kansas, Bethany Pope of Nashville, Tennessee, Brooke (Nate) Hughes of Wichita, Kansas, Heath (Jeni) Pope of Severy, Kansas, and Jerrad (Katelyn) Pope of Howard, Kansas; and ten great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Harold Johnson; and her sister, Viola Shrader.

Politics / Boeing . . . . . Designed By Clowns . . . . . Run By Unions
« Last post by Wake-up! on January 14, 2020, 07:49:00 am »

How extreme is the Unions' control? In 1988 I worked in a medical clinic in Federal Way Washington, a suburb of the greater Seattle area. A black man started bring his aged mom in twice a week for IV chelation. He was a Boeing employee, had come up through the union ranks, and had been promoted into management. He was very proud of that, even though he freely admitted it had taken him twice as long to make the grade because he was black.

He managed a shop of about twenty workers. If a worker did not show up on time, He could reprimand or fire them. Workers had to sign out to leave their work stations for the restroom, a smoke break, or food. He could reprimand or fire them if they were not where they said they were going. BUT, if the worker stayed at his work station, climbed on the desk or assembly surface and slept, he could do nothing! Workers did not need to work. As long as they were at their work stations, the Unions protected them.

In a free society, any individual, business, or organization—religious or otherwise—would have the right to discriminate not only on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity, but also because of race, color, religion, or national origin. This is because in a free society, any person, group, or entity would have the right to discriminate against any other person, group, or entity on any basis and for any reason.
