Wall Street Banksters Stole America!

I rather work in the public sector so I can get all the great benefits and pay like you get. I don't want to work for some mean, tight private company that because of all the regulations and taxes they can't afford to properly compensate their employees like those in the public sector. So if you and Obama have some openings, I am ready and able to take on any job and perform as good as your current employees,

Temperance Tom conveniently forgets that Marcy fought for working Americans such as himself that put her in a disadvantage when working with the Democratic party and Republicans. She seen the writing-on-the-wall long ago what our so-called leaders and their unbridled unregulated Trade Agreements would do to our standard of living for Toledoans and the country as a whole. Goofy local talk show "entertainers" wonder why she hasn't been promoted by the Democratic machine and I say she's too independent too honest for both parties.Yet the foolish want to rewrite history!

I really love these Saturday Night Special skits this actress does about Marcy! I can't wait to she comes up with later this year. Anyone know her name?

Hey Tom, run for office. I'm sure you'll win...it's the year of the tea-bagger

Do "working families" include white-collar people? Democrats love to throw that phrase around a lot.

toledojim

yes - anymore questions?

You'd never know it from all the endorsments the Democrats get from unions. Why don't your unions endorse Republican candidates? Is it because they usually represent companies, white-collar non-union workers? BTW, I know a UAW retiree who asked his co-workers the same questions.

toledojim

My wife and I are very white collar and are proudly Progressive Democrats.

Why don't union guys vote Republicans? Maybe because the Republicans are always trying to do away with the unions. Not a brain surgeon are you.

Why are Republicans "always trying to do away with the unions"?

Direct from the Manifesto fo the Communist Party

http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/

But with the development of industry, the proletariat not only increases in number; it becomes concentrated in greater masses, its strength grows, and it feels that strength more. The various interests and conditions of life within the ranks of the proletariat are more and more equalised, in proportion as machinery obliterates all distinctions of labour, and nearly everywhere reduces wages to the same low level. The growing competition among the bourgeois, and the resulting commercial crises, make the wages of the workers ever more fluctuating. The increasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes their livelihood more and more precarious; the collisions between individual workmen and individual bourgeois take more and more the character of collisions between two classes. Thereupon, the workers begin to form combinations (Trades’ Unions) against the bourgeois; they club together in order to keep up the rate of wages; they found permanent associations in order to make provision beforehand for these occasional revolts. Here and there, the contest breaks out into riots.

Now and then the workers are victorious, but only for a time. The real fruit of their battles lies, not in the immediate result, but in the ever expanding union of the workers. This union is helped on by the improved means of communication that are created by modern industry, and that place the workers of different localities in contact with one another. It was just this contact that was needed to centralise the numerous local struggles, all of the same character, into one national struggle between classes. But every class struggle is a political struggle. And that union, to attain which the burghers of the Middle Ages, with their miserable highways, required centuries, the modern proletarian, thanks to railways, achieve in a few years.

This organisation of the proletarians into a class, and, consequently into a political party, is continually being upset again by the competition between the workers themselves. But it ever rises up again, stronger, firmer, mightier. It compels legislative recognition of particular interests of the workers, by taking advantage of the divisions among the bourgeoisie itself. Thus, the ten-hours’ bill in England was carried.

I  wonder which  political party Karl Marx was talking about? Can't be Republicans because we know Socialism doesn't work.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Right out of the 0bama playbook?

Unions were useful years ago. Not any more, unless you're thinking of grabbing political power for socialistic purposes. You don't need to be a brain surgeon to know that.

That's the dumbest thing I've heard yet on this blog site. As the union voice has subsided so has the Middleclass lifestyle we've all come to enjoy. Without the union advocate none of us has a voice in maintaining this lifestyle that came about because of unions. That's a fact....look it up!

Thanks for calling me names. I can tell you're a liberal. When they run out wrong ideas, they start the name-calling game. You drink your Kool-Aid, and I'll drink mine.

Do you need a Union to ask your boss for a raise? Can't you do it? Are you scared of what the answer will be?

Or do you know that your bosses will tell you that you are not worth more money? Do you need the help of your "Union Brothers" to make sure you keep your job? Aren't you secure enough with yourself? Don't have any spine to make it on your own?

Good for you that Unions will protect you even though you cannot make it on your own.

THAT is why people hate Unions. They protect the lowest, most worthless worker.

It is good business to keep and reward the most productive members of your staff.

It is cheaper to pay one person more money if they can do the work of two below-par workers.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Wolfman laughs at the at the foolish thinking that unions are passe.
Example:
With extreme racists radio calling for contract busting to resolve Toledo's budget hole will one employee asking the city to not cut his pay and benefits work or would the collective union workforce be in a better position to negotiate better terms as a whole?

"With extreme racists radio calling for contract busting to resolve Toledo's budget hole"

TRANSLATION: Since I have no ideas that are not supplied to me by my masters in the Democratic Party and spoon-fed to me by my slave masters in the Union, I have been told to call anyone who does not agree with me some sort of "racist", "Nazi", "Homophobe" or other name.

If I could spell it, I would also stick out my tongue at you and say "neyh neyh neyh" but I am not allowed for my thinking to stray from the collective. I am NOTHING without the backing of other people and I depend on others to go to my boss and get me a raise since I have no balls. That is why I feel safe calling you names. By myself, I am a pu$$y, but with the "Union Brotherhood" behind me,  I am a mouthy, loud, ignorant puppet.

"will one employee asking the city to not cut his pay and benefits work or would the collective union workforce be in a better position to negotiate better terms as a whole?"

TRANSLATION:  Since I work for the city, I demand that the 70% of you non-union people in Toledo pay for everything.

 My masters and controllers in the Union are telling me it is better to drive the city into bankruptcy and have no job rather than give up part of the benifits that others have gotten for me since I am neither smart enough or strong enough to get them for myself.

I don't care if it is cheaper for me to go to my doctor, get a prescription and go to the pharmacy for my Viagra than it is for you to go to Krogers and buy asprin. YOU OWE ME because I never finished High School, and couldn't find my ass with both hands unless my Union Masters showed me where my ass is. I already know where my Union Leaders asses are. I have my lips attached to their butts.

Bottom line, you are a Socialist. And, like every Socialist in history, you and your kind will be extinct some day.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

“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.”

You won't find any of these Corporations giving to Marcy Kaptur but Bob Latta gets his funding from these Corporations!

Latta doesn't list any of these companies on the Open Secrets web site I checked. Obama sure gets his money from them, though. And he's paid them off handsomely, especially Goldman Sachs.

Heavy Hitters
American Bankers Assn

The American Bankers Association represents banks of all types and sizes, including regional banks, holding companies and savings associations. One of the most powerful lobbying groups on Capitol Hill, the association regularly presses Congress for regulatory relief and industry tax breaks. But its main interest lately has been bankruptcy reform. The association is part of a special coalition of credit card companies, banks and credit unions pushing for a bankruptcy bill that would force consumers to repay at least some of their debts.

Bush is the one who bailed out the banks.
