More Liberal Sense of Entitlement

Bloggers Consider Forming Labor Union:
"I think people have just gotten to the point where people outside the blogosphere understand the value of what it is that we do on the progressive side," said Susie Madrak, the author of Suburban Guerilla blog, who is active in the union campaign. "And I think they feel a little more entitled to ask for something now." [emphasis added]
"The reason I like blogging is that it's very anarchistic. I can do whatever I want whenever I want, and oh my God, you're not going to tell me what to do," said Curt Hopkins, the founder of the Committee to Protect Bloggers.
Mr. Hopkins probably has the better attitude here. Mostly, these bloggers are amateurs who are just doing what they do because they enjoy doing it. The idea of unionize, is, as much as it is to get something for nothing, an attempt to start excluding bloggers who don't toe the line and legitimize the moonbattery that exists among so many bloggers.

The something-for-nothing aspect is that these liberals want to get paid for their hobbies. Fine, we'd all do it, if we could. BUT, like all liberals, they feel they are "entitled" to get paid for their hobby and avoid getting real jobs. Hey, if a blogger can a job blogging, I'm all for it. But, I believe, the best bloggers are people who do something else and then bring that knowledge and experience to their blogging/writing.

The "professional standards" will be used that way, first to exclude conservatives and then to deny non-members whatever access and legitimacy is gained, i.e, you're" not a member, you're not a real blogger. " Then, like all unions, non-member will be harassed by members to join or stop.
