I was going to call John Hendrickson the head of the EEOC Regional Office in Chicago a "government thug" for suing a Wisconsin company because of their english language requirement for employees. But it occurred to me that "thug" is too generous. At least a "thug" has the balls to do the dirty work themselves as they grab you by the throat, look you in the eyes, and extort your money.
Instead I have decided to call John Erickson "Little Stick" in homage to his own personal biography that you can read at the EEOC web site. John seems to be quite proud of the fact that the Chicago Tribune called him the "Big Stick" via the following quote:
"The Chicago office of the EEOC is one of the most aggressive federal agencies around...Led by regional attorney John Hendrickson, the EEOC's office at 500 W. Madison St. carries a big stick."
"Little Stick" has been at the EEOC since 1981. That's 33 years sucking on the government tit working for the most corrupt and out of control bureaucracy in the United States of America. It's real easy to think you carry a "big stick" when you can bring the full force of the American government down on a small business owner for some imagined or trumped-up issue.
There is no honor, courage or strength in what Little Stick does for a living. None. And like some men, their outward aggression quite ofter compensates for some inner deficency. Like not having the balls to fight fair, with honor and courage. I look forward to the day when Little Stick loses his job and pension and has to compete with the rest of us. Then he'll get the chance to see just how big his stick really is.
