For the children

The looming bankruptcy of many state and local governments has made the public leeches desperate. Now that the politicians are more afraid of their bondholders than the unions, the unions are attempting take their mindless “brains more brains” message straight to the electorate with all the subtlety and sophistication that you’d expect.

“The Sacramento County, Calif., sheriff’s deputies union is using mobile billboards, mailers and radio and newspaper ads with vivid images and messages in a bid to avert more layoffs. The campaign includes a photo of a child with an adult’s hand over its mouth and the words, “Your child could be at risk!” Another shows a masked man breaking through a door and asks, “Do you feel safe?””

The irony, of course, is that the masked man most likely to break through a citizen of Sacramento County’s door at night is a member of a SWAT team.
