    So thanks to this commie ruling, any lazy loser who suspects s/he‘s about to get fired need only file a lawsuit to maintain employment? Is this part of the community organizer‘s plan for social justice and redistributed equality? Utter madness.

    “The takeaway from this is if someone files a lawsuit against you, don’t take action against them, unless there is a good independent reason for doing so.”

    Can‘t argue with that. However, the ALJ‘s decision is ludicrous and simply further erodes any lingering respect for or perception of neutrality on the part of the NLRB. My prediction is that when the White House changes parties in 2016, there will be a massive backlash against and drastic reduction of the power of the Board -- if not before, by Congress though funding cuts, when the GOP takes over the Senate and strengthens its hold on the House this fall.
