The Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA), is seeking to block a major residential construction project in the heart of housing-starved Silicon Valley, claiming there will be a bloodbath of birds due to the proposed building's reflective windows.

"The union claims that the approved 1,051-unit residential project, sponsored by the Irvine Company, may cause permanent damage to the environment and thus must be scrapped, Reason magazine reported.

The project would tear down office buildings in an industrial area and instead build apartments and townhouses, providing desperately needed affordable housing in the area. More than half the units would also be rented at below-market prices to people on lower incomes."

The union claims birds will be killed by the projects reflective windows and more birds would be killed by residents cats. The union's chapter in LA has filed frivolous law suits of this type in an attempt to ensure the company doing the building hires union members.

THIS ^^^^^

When (if) we learn to read between the lines...
QUIT trusting ANY polecat...
And be active in politics; making anyone elected accountable!!!
We can clean up the corruption that is destroying our country...
And make it a better place for our kids and grandkids to live!

I wonder how much the govt would pay... to have the answer to that???
Problem is... whomever signed the authorization...
You can bet your last $Washington...
That the results would favor whatever that person (and their agenda) wanted to hear!
