How Much Will Union Spend-To Lose in Columbus?


I'm not sure how much union money was spent in Wisconsin, to lose to the republicans. My guess is many millions-paying to ship professional agitators there, from all over the country isn't cheap. Despite all predictions, their Governor stood his ground, and didn't cave. Does anyone seriously think other Governors will cut and run now, in the wake of what happened in Wisconsin? Not.

Ruger has just announced that they are coming out with a new pistol in honor of Obama. It will be named the Union Worker.

It doesn’t work and you can’t fire it.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

It remains for us taxpayers to demand gains from all these cuts, instead of just letting the government take the money saved and pump it into more elitist crony programs.

Guest Zero assumes once again that only non-union workers pay taxes. How does one become so ignorant and yet so arrogant about his ignorance? Union workers pay taxes to you dip wad. Do you really think republican politicians and business owners care about you and whats best for the average worker?

So you're saying that government employees are self-employed? That the fraction of their incomes that is taxes, actually pays for all their incomes?

How ideologically retarded do you have to be, to ever imply that such a mathematical impossibility is real?

The owners of capital must negotiate with us since they need workers. But they always held the stronger position. That was always true. So being a worker with a big house and a vacation home and jet-skis and stuffed credit cards was the aberration and it's all coming to an end. (By no mean coincidence, so is the era of cheap oil. Those things went hand in hand.)

Unless you'd prefer to revoke the right of private property. That's what we'd expect from a Unionist, Socialist and Communist. Those are just three facets of the same worthless piece of shit that likes to run society on big payouts until he runs out of other people's money.

Anyway, union membership was dying on the vine, so that problem will fix itself in time. What remained aberrant is that membership fled into the ranks of government employees. The wiki on union membership in the USA goes into that in detail. So now, finally, we're fixing that little problem, too. The middle class can't expect to get big pay, benefits and retirements anymore. Those were NEVER sustainable. In fact, it is wholly farcical for anyone to work a mere 20 years and then get a fat retirement check for the rest of their lives.

What's happening in WI and OH and about 9 other states, is the start of the solution. It's morning in America. Finally. We taxpayers are not going to be bled to death to supply lazy unionized "workers" with fat paychecks, fatter benefits, and grossly fat retirements any longer.
