<quoted text>I agree Bush didnt Handle Katrina right from the begining he took the set back and wait approach from the governors where Obama didnt, Obama was on the phone with the governors prior to Sandi's arrival to assure that Federal Assistance was ready and waiting for governor's when ready to request Federal Assistance.
Due to George Bush's ignorance the gulf coast still hasn't recovered from Katrina and never will. The northeast is very much back to normal except for a few small areas, thanks to President Obama's rapid response and take-charge handling of the situation. All the folks in the northeast are all saying they're glad Bush isn't in charge. He would have probobly let unqualified non-union scabs do the work and nothing would of gotten done yet.

To further your point, I have to assume that you are in favor of doing away with all national holidays.

The union meant something 60 years ago when there were not laws in place to protect the worker. Today we have such laws, which makes the union obsolete.

So what chapter in the bible is the Christmas tree mentioned or Santa Claus? Get a clue .. Christmas is largely a secular holiday which is celebrated in unison with a Christian holiday assigned to this existing holiday in an attempt to compete with the pagan celebration Roman Saturnalia, a harvest festival that marked the winter solstice.
Geez do some research before demonstrating your ignorance

Maybe if you had a job the national holiday would mean something to you. Instead its just another day loafing like the last.
Americans don't wan't their tax dollars used to pay goverment freeloaders a paid day off. I know some goverment workers. The don't do nothing much as it is.

The fact that you cannot spell constitution is probably a clue, not to mention the idiotic argument that you posed.

However in an effort to education the dim:

2nd Amendment to the Constitution
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

The decline of our middle class in this country is largely due to the lack of further education of our work force. In the last 30 years we have moved from manufacturing to technology as a prime employer. With this move came greater education requirements which many in this country did not foresee or prepare for.

Exactly! The people in a well regulated militia have the right to keep an bear arms. Today, that would consist of the police and the military. It says nothing about private citizens. Thank you for making my point.

If the ignorant masses had the common sense to realize that the no skilled broom pusher jobs are almost extinct in this country, and attempted to get an education so that they could become more competitive, then they would not need to pick my pocket to survive.

I find that those who advocate for welfare and food stamps have a family member or themselves as a recipient of said charity.

In a right to work state, you succeed and keep your job by performing. This is what productive, successful individuals do. Only losers look to outside protection to save them from their lack of productivity.

These right to work supporters have no idea how much labor unions benefit there workers. Besides insuring fair wages and compensation they keep unqualified people from performing work they aren't qualified to do. Labor unions eliminate shoddy workmanship and result in a more quality product.
