Opeining salvo challenging those "recess" appointments...there are sure to be others.  More unintended consequences for your delectation.

Suit was filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia asserting that the interim appointments to the National Labor Relations Board are constitutionally invalid because there was no recess and that without valid appointments to the NLRB it lacks a quorum and under Supreme Court law cannot act on new rules or doctrines.

Long story short: there is no certainty to any NLRB action while this is pending.

Here you go.

Barbara Lifton didn't get the memo

Barbara Lifton doesn't think this happens. We've blogged about it here, here, and in any number of other posts. These people just don't get it.

At Bookworm Room, via New Zeal:

...The National Labor Relations Board has held that Boeing cannot build a plant in South Carolina:

In a stunning move well beyond the scope of their legal mandate, the Obama Administration appointee controlled National Labor Relations Board is suing Boeing Corporation for, get this, building a second production line for their new Dreamliner passenger plane in South Carolina rather than in Washington state.


South Carolina is a right to work state whose voters this past November overwhelmingly amended their state’s constitution to ensure that a worker has the right to vote on whether they want to be represented by a labor union. The workers at the Boeing plant in South Carolina have also taken the bold step of booting out the union that represented them, effectively ending the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers stranglehold on Boeing production.

Now, Obama’s NLRB is attacking Boeing’s job creation in South Carolina as “union retaliation” directly related to a 2008 labor strike which crippled Boeing’s production in Washington state.

Now that those state governments that are in thrall to unions and labor have made it virtually impossible to do business in State A, the federal government is upping the ante by making it illegal for a business to move to State B.  I’ll reiterate here what I often say:  The Left may call them corporate fat cats or “rich people,” but I call them employers.  When you make it impossible for them to do business, they’re going to leave.  And if you make it impossible to leave, they’re going to die on the vine, leaving both State A and State B without jobs.
