And no, I don't give 2 shits about whether or not the NLRB is able to perform its duties. I believe that this country would get along just fine without it and several hundred other bureaucracies.
Really, all of this, just about every sentence, is one form of nonsense or another.
But the bolded part is really what informs you. You don't think the NLRB is remotely important.
If you did, you'd understand it clearly fits your stated standard of "needs to be filled with urgency."
Of course, you don't much care for standards, and I understand attempting to hold you to your own is a fool's mission. But it's important to keep our eye on the ball here: you invented a standard (an urgent appointment), I argue that this standard is definitiely met (this is crucial enough to be urgent), and your response is: no it isn't, with pretty much no explanation.
That's on you. You don't think there should be any centralized understanding in this country of how unions work.
Which I'm not even sure if that's true, because I'm not even sure if you've spent the time pouring over that issue to warrant the opinions you're spouting off here. Opinions with no ideological mooring or internal consistency.
