In a move that might make some people scratch their heads, a loosely formed coalition of left-leaning bloggers are trying to band together to form a labor union they hope will help them receive health insurance, conduct collective bargaining or even set professional standards.
Cause look what it has done for the American auto manufacturers...
Sitting at a panel titled "A Union for Bloggers: It's Time to Organize" at this week's YearlyKos Convention for bloggers in Chicago, Illinois, Burgard said she'd welcome a chance to join a unionized blogging community.
Kos Kommies. Should have known.
Madrak hopes that regardless the form, the labor movement ultimately will help bloggers pay for medical bills. It's important, she said, because some bloggers can spend hours a day tethered to computers as they update their Web sites.
No one is making you blog. The government should not have to pay for your personal choices (bad ones or good ones). Also, Internet Addiction. Look it up.
"Blogging is very intense -- physically, mentally," she said. "You're constantly scanning for news. You're constantly trying to come up with information that you think will mobilize your readers. In the meantime, you're sitting at a computer and your ass is getting wider and your arm and neck and shoulder are wearing out because you're constantly using a mouse."
Maybe you could....oh hell, I dunno, GET OFF YOUR FAT ASS AND EXERCISE. Here's a novel idea, if something hurts, DON'T DO IT. FFS people, it isn't that damn hard to figure out. Stop trying to suck at Hillary's tit for government freebies.
