    A shocking development - By Dimitri Vassilaros, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
    The only thing more shocking than the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' resolution opposing illegal immigration and "guest workers" is that it passed without debate by voice vote. IBEW spokesman Jim Spellane did not know another time when the union disagreed with its umbrella organization, the AFL-CIO.

    Mr. Spellane calls the split "significant."

    But will it be significant enough to stop the transformational anarchy engineered by Big Business, Big Labor and, of course, Big Government -- breaking down the rule of law to more easily morph America, Mexico and Canada into the North American super state?
