    Good news/bad news. Good news is, the Dems figured out a way to get something past the No Nothing Repubs. Bad news is, the vast majority of organized labor will now breath a sigh of relief and go back to looking for "legal" solutions for what ails them and going back to "business unionism" instead of organizing for power. What did Labor do before the NLRB? They kicked ass and took it to the streets. The labor relations statutes, culminating w/the Taft-Hartley Act, and through them the creation of the NLRB, have de-fanged the labor movement. The sad fact is most of organized labor, with the exception of a handful of progressive, militant unions, don't understand that.
