I want to thank Maggie Thurber at Thurber's Thoughts for writing about Cleland's, Union Labor and Hypocrites. I read Maggie Thurger's blog on a regular basis but rarely leave comments as I agree with almost everything she writes about and I have little or nothing meaningful to add. The short of it is that the Cleland family gave the construction job for their new building to a relative who is in the construction business, but who uses non-union labor. This caused the local labor unions to picket Cleland's new store, but I'm told they gave it up - possibly because the picketers felt it might be hazardous to their health to continue marching and blocking the driveway. Did I mention that Cleland's is a gun store with an indoor pistol range?
Anyway, when I read the story on Maggie's blog I didn't see any way out of taking a run over to Cleland's and buying something, and I encourage everyone else to do the same. These people are entrepreneurs (which the economy needs) and operate against political correctness every single day. Please do what you can to support them.
