Local 2544, the Border Patrol union for the Tucson sector, has announced that the union has authorized the patch shown below to be worn on agents' uniforms as a way to protest the nearly 40% pay cut from discontinued AUO, cut uniform allowances (in the face of TSA getting a $50 million windfall for new unis), and reductions in salary.
|The original Border Patrol uniform patch.|
The massive team that works day in and day out to bring you the pearls of wisdom found here at Conservative Observer AZ decided to show their support for our agents by taking the liberty of adding a few touches to the original patch. The gang felt that this was a case where it is better to ask forgiveness than permission, and we hope that the union sees it in the spirit it which it was intended! [read: Neither the U.S. Border Patrol nor its agent unions are responsible for the atrocious artistic talent on display in the modified version of their patch.]
You too can show solidarity with the plight of the Border Patrol by downloading and proudly displaying the first logo above! Encourage others to steal it, and let David Aguilar, Janet Napolitano, and Barack Hussein Obama know that funding needs to be restored to protect our country!
