USAT Picks Up On "Bloggers' Union" Story

Again, I don't know how one bargains with employers, collectively or individually, when one does not, in fact, have employers at all.

The only part that even makes a lick of sense is the idea of grouping together to negotiate more favorably for health insurance and the like.

But that makes no sense either. Most bloggers are not professional bloggers and will have insurance through their real job.

And -- just guessing here -- bloggers doing this full-time will tend to have, as a group, bad health profiles making inclusion in the blogger collective an actual disadvantage when seeking to negotiate price.

I really don't understand the rules of this fantasy world lefties live in. It seems like a magical place, full of whimsy and mystery, like Hogwarts', except with invocations like expelliarimus! replaced by chickenhawk! and Chimphitler McHalliburton!
