Sometimes you just have to laugh at the stupidity of the SEIU, right?

Brought to you by the union that has been known to proudly speak for the Departments of Education, Transportation, and Health and Human Services.... Couldn’t figure out how to read a map? Seriously... Are you REALLY surprised?

When union workers and environmental activists picked a Hastings-area site to protest inaction on a Marcellus Shale severance tax, they made one mistake. Marcellus activity isn’t occurring within miles of it.

Service Employees International Union officials issued an apology Monday, saying they mistakenly set up their protest Thursday – and a makeshift tollbooth asking the industry to pay its fair share – next to a surface well property that has been around for years and isn’t set up for shale drilling.

“There is no Marcellus Shale drilling on that property, and we’ve contacted the property owners and apologized. It was a mistake, and there was no malice intended even when we thought it was a Marcellus well,” said Neil Bhaerman, a SEIU Healthcare spokesman. “It was an honest mistake that we are going to take extra care to ensure never happens again.”

  • That is funny. Isn't there someone who checks that stuff up prior to organizing the protest? Apparently not.
