Remember old Rush railing against drugs and druggies and then he gets busted for drugs?
Oh yeah? Former member and e board member of IAFF Local 548. Your qualifications are what again?

And it is painfully obvious you regurgitate all msnbc and Rachel Madcow talking points. So again, your union qualifications are what again?

I can provide videos of many speeches Reagan made, including IMO his best speech at the '64 RNC, without a teleprompter, can you say the same about Obama? No! Hell, even Sarah Palin gave her best speech at the '08 RNC without the use of a teleprompter! Can you say this about Obama? Again, No.

Qualification--Former member of AFL-CIO IBEW. Just because you came from a far doesn't make you a wise man. You know as little about unions as you know about accounting. All your information is from talking heads. You are sooo FOS. You must be a Braweeehill man.

Ronald Reagan has the distinction of being the only American President who was declared legally dead while in office.

Pro.....even a nitwit like Palin can give a few off the cuff remarks that sound decent...it was all the other stupid remarks she made on a continuous basis that hurt the GOP ticket....Hitler was a great orator....I wouldn't vote for him....Kennedy and Reagan were good speakers..What's your point? Even a nut like me is good in front of a crowd, it just energizes me.

Take is from someone who knows firsthand. The days where Unions were "needed" are gone.

Just ask the 18K Hostess employees what they think of the union.

Hostess filed for bankruptcy in January 2012 and the top execs were receiving $1 annually to keep the doors open. Hostess lost $341 million in the fiscal year 2011. The money for the compensation that the bakery union wanted simply wasn’t there. Even the Teamsters union looked at Hostess’ books and acknowledged that the only way to keep the operation afloat would have been for workers to accept lower compensation.

The bakery union lost sight of an important truth understood by Samuel Gompers, the founder of the American Federal of Labor, over a century ago. He understood that what workers need is a company that operates at a profit.

A more important question is why do the union members that did strike and lost their jobs continue to think they are entitled to anything extra. I would even question giving them unemployment.
