Don't know if this Topic has been discussed and haven't been on in approximately 2 weeks ( though I'm sure my "Screen Name" with the United States ISP has. demwit o'boyo & accomplice suki tawdry ).

24 States have now adopted "The Right To Work".
Legislation.

While Labor Unions once had a place and purpose in American Business: IE: Child Labor Laws, Safe working conditions and environment, they have out lived their usefulness. We now have Laws to oversee, regulate, protect the above mentioned.

Obama needs to stop sticking his nose into the rights and power of The State(s). Doesn't he have enough FEDERAL issues to take care of.

Course he's Campaigning for The Unions because they are a strong voter base; an arm of The Democratic Party.

He'll probably send his racist Attorney General, Eric Holder to claim this Right To Work Legislation is racist and discriminates and disenfranchises minorities.

The only people who have been discriminated against and disenfranchised by The Unions are those who want to work WITHOUT having to join a Union.

And once a Company/Business becomes Unionized, that Company/Business signs its decision making process over to The Union, ergo The Union is now running that Company/Business. Well, frig that.

The American Worker should have a choice.
The Democrats and its Unions, the party of the oxymoron "tolerance and diversity", don't want to extend CHOICE. Because The Unions want their cut, and The Democrats want their Vote.

This Legislation is fair. If a worker wants to join The Union, join. For those who don't, they no longer HAVE to. C'est la vie Unions.

Don't know WTH Union Members are protesting about.
They're not losing anything. Let The Unions compete in the open market. If the question were to be asked of one getting ready to go into, open a new Business or Company ~ If asked Union or Non, the answer would always be Non.

Let it happen put tax rates back to what they were during the Clinton administration and cut military spending.
Do it!
It's not going to throw us into a recession any more than the tax cuts for the rich help the economy.
Let it go already.

The true American Christian is not fooled by false prophets and can easily recognize prayer in a man's face. Their spirituality gives them wings to reach God. They can see real and Obama is anti-Christian. Obama's health care plan caused the Catholic Bishops to sue Obama after he forced abortions down their throats. Obama's Arab Spring opened the door for Christian persecutions in the Middle East. Obama's media portrays Assad as a devil, yet Assad protected the Christians. At least one priest was martyred as shown in this video. Thank Obama for his freedom. The priest was murdered by the US backed rebels and many Christians have been killed or have fled their homes all because the Amerikan Nero wants it.

The last nail on America's coffin has been hammered while Obama and his comrades smirk over its grave. Meanwhile the majority of Amerikans keep laughing as though they are intoxicated or drugged. All those comedy shows they watched patterned their brains to find a joke in everything. These perennial adolescents have nothing to fear. They will dance and sing with their proclaimed savior who may be punch drunk as journalist Steve Kroft asked in this video. They cannot see that hope and confidence in their master is unavailing. Did Obama reduce the debt by even one dollar?

The tax cuts were supposed to be temporary to help stimulate the economy. That was 10 years ago. They should have let them expire the last time they came up and they should definitely let them expire now. In case you haven't heard we're broke. Spending 600 billion+ per year on the military, more than the next 10 highest countries combined, is getting a bit out of hand no?

In the case of Michigan, "right to work" has more to do with politics than economics.

The unionized police, fire and other emergency responders were not affected. Fancy that!

The governor rushed it through a lame duck assembly and when his lying azz gets kicked to the curb the legislation with be repealed.

The whole thing amounted to fodder for fools__such as yourself.

Well gun nuts, another one of your guys has massacred a group of shoppers at a Portland Oregon mall. I guess he was just exercising his so-called right to keep and bear arms. Americans are fed up with you gun nuts and your random mass murders. It's time for America to get rid of all of these guns.
It will NEVER be 'time' for American citizens to give up our guns. That's what the 2nd Amendment is all about.

Rather than leave weapon ownership strictly to the criminals, we'll keep our guns too, thanks.

Politics and Economics are on par regarding Unions, no matter what State.

Police, Fire and Emergency Responders are the ONLY group of workers I believe should be Unionized.
The Teacher's Union has got to go.

I don't think the Legislation will be repealed.
Too many States are enacting this Legislation.
More to come.

When the truth and facts of an issue are presented to a Liberal, their reactionary response, spew insults.
Now THAT is fodder for fools.
And SO pathologically predictable, such as yourself.

I'd say you were a "tad bit" angry, o wretched and weasly one!

Most of the naysayers for letting the tax cuts expire, would WAY rather double military spending, and pay for American defense contractors' continued prerogative to start dirty little wars for profit overseas, than pick up the tab for 'somebody else's bad choices' here at home.


Wealthy people like to help fund wars, because war is very profitable; especially those in which they don't have to physically participate... poor people, who represent a majority in the fighting forces, not so much...so the wealthy are perfectly fine with the idea of the military being a major source of jobs for poor people, whose work opportunities are otherwise limited by the dearth of other well-paying jobs. Win-win!

It's that whole 'priorities' thing.

Romney is only three for four in political races (sucky) and his life was laid bare this time from bullying the sensitive young man at Cranbrook, to hiding money offshore to evade federal taxes.

Ann will probably divorce him if he ever enters another political race.
