"...without the Union, he wouldn't have received the wages he deserved." is the lie and fallacy of unionism. "deserved"?
What does "deserved" mean in your book? He's a nice guy so he deserves to get paid more? If there was only one electrician in America, he/she could demand a million dollars per hour. If there were 20 million electricians, their wages would be set lower by the market. Artificially propping up income or prices is dead wrong because it skews and distorts the natural flow between supply and demand with bad consequences.
If I bake Twinkies for a living should I "deserve" to make $150, 000 per year? A quarter million?$30 grand? Who should decide what is "deserved" and what is not? It used to be that markets made that determination. Now, Congressional Leftists have determined to set wages. Because it buys them votes.
Professional athletes sign multi-million dollar multi-year contracts because the market allows for it. But then they organize into unions to demand even more. As long as the stupid fans are willing to pay for those artificial strong-arm marketplace tactics in their beer prices, parking and ticket prices... then so be it. A Fool and his money....
When corporations corner a market it's called an illegal Monopoly. When they collude to fix prices, it's called illegal price-fixing. When Unions corner markets through closed-shop practices or when they engage in price-fixing through standardized wage levels or other tactics like teachers' precious Tenure, it is NOT called illegal anything.
Inside the construction and manufacturing industries, Skilled Trades Apprenticeships are often handed out through nepotism, cronyism and unwarranted racial quotas, all crooked distortions of labor markets. So when I hear someone speak about how someone in a union gets the wages they "deserve", I smell more burnt Twinkies in the Devil's own kitchen of stupidity.
Yes he is a nice guy, and hell yes, he deserved those wages. He worked his azz off in harsh weather and dangerous conditions. I'm sure if you ever had a job like that, you sure as hell would want a fair wage. In fact I know any human being would. Who knows, maybe you're some slave labor boss who works his employees into the ground, or you work behind some desk all day in a warm office and don't have a clue what it's like to work in construction. Yes, he chose that field of work because he was a shop guy in high school and decided that being an electrician would provide steady work. For him, it did. He went on to be a Journeyman - 4 years of technical school and then became a foreman. Thanks to the Union, my husband earned a decent income. Just the same, none of the Union members had paid holidays, although they did receive a good wage. I hope that we never have to return to those days of the Great Depression era, and when employers reaped huge profits off the sweat of their employees. I should have to care anymore since I've just retired, but the fact is, I do care - we should all care. When you are unfair to others, it eventually comes back to you. We reap what we sow.

You're one of the biggest Mammon worshipers here, Mr. "Socialism is evil." Why else would you think sharing the wealth was evil, if you weren't completely about "I got mine, and you're outta luck, chump."

As the previous poster boy for "Make love, not war," and considering the miserable failure of that ideal since the flower child era, one can hardly blame the man.

Obama's more narrow victory was nothing like the jubilant celebration in 2008, when his hope-and-change election as the nation's first black president captivated the world. This time, Obama ground it out with a stay-the-course pitch that essentially boiled down to a plea for more time to make things right and a hope that Congress will be more accommodating than in the past.

The most pressing challenges immediately ahead for the 44th president are all too familiar: an economy still baby-stepping its way toward full health; 23 million people out of work or in search of better jobs; civil war in Syria; a menacing standoff over Iran's nuclear program.

Sharp differences with Republicans in Congress on taxes, spending, deficit reduction, immigration and more await. While Republicans control the House, Democrats have at least 52 votes in the Senate and Republicans 45. One newly elected independent isn't saying which party he'll side with, and races in Montana and North Dakota were not yet called.

Votes also were being counted Wednesday in the Montana and Washington gubernatorial races.

Obama's list of promises to keep includes many holdovers he was unable to deliver on in his first term, such as rolling back tax cuts for upper-income people, overhauling immigration policy and reducing federal deficits. Six in 10 voters said in exit polls that taxes should be increased, and nearly half of voters said taxes should be increased on incomes over $250,000, as Obama has called for.

"It's very clear from the exit polling that a majority of Americans recognize that we need to share responsibility for reducing the deficit," Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, told CNN. "That means asking higher-income earners to contribute more to reducing the deficit."

Even before Obama gets to his second inaugural on Jan. 20, he must deal with the threatened "fiscal cliff." A combination of automatic tax increases and steep across-the-board spending cuts are set to take effect in January if Washington doesn't quickly reach a budget deal. Experts have warned that the economy could tip back into recession without an agreement.

Newly elected Democrats signaled they want compromise to the avoid the fiscal cliff.

Hehe...

I'm just like you. My wife left me and now I am a loser Democrat.

I want everyone else to make up for my ugliness, laziness & stupidity. Socialism is great if you want everyone to be poor like us. But we don't care.

We just want other people's stuff without earning it!

It's fun being a loser like you & me, Hehe!

Who are we supposed to hate today? Obama hasn't told us who it is this week.
