    Stephen Colbert Satirizes NLRB's Anti-Union Assault - American Rights at Work
    The Bush-appointed National Labor Relations Board is poised to issue decisions that could strip millions of workers of their right to have a union at work—all without holding public hearings.

    it was on Comedy Central last night; click the link above to watch this hilarious clip.  Then click the "Play" button in the middle of the image.
