I had to log back on briefly just to post yet ANOTHER stupid comment by a dumb negro. Typical leftist fascist. He IS a funny little negro though........:-

Harry Belafonte says President Obama should ‘work like 3rd world dictator’ put GOP in jail

Harry Belefonte was interviewed by Al Sharpton on MSNBC today and offered President Obama some advice on handling the GOP and opponents.

“That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people [Republicans, Conservatives, and The Tea Party], the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want. The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a 3rd world dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

They'd have no benefits if not for the Union. DUH
Y'know, you only need to look as far as WalMart, where they treat American citizens like POW's.
That's why Unions are necessary. To stop predatory caitalists from exploiting workers.
You don't know anythig about anything!!
(But you're real good at saying dumb things.)
Unions represent about 8% if the work force, yet about 58 percent of the work force have employer sponsored health insurance. Blows your theory out of the water.

NO one is 'forced' to work in a union shop. One's chosen field of employment is just that: CHOSEN. Be grateful the government doesn't assign you a trade at age eighteen, like China does. No one in America is FORCED to work anywhere. Ever. Where we apply for work is entirely up to us.

It's that whole 'personal responsibility' thing you're uncomfortable with, innit...?

You're a real fkn dunce aren't you pal? Detroit didn't get anything right. The State of Michigan does it's business in Lansing goofball and the entire state is now a right to work state. Well, except for the police, fire, emergency responders and a few other "divisions" of public servants.

If you think that a bunch of Michigan's United Auto Workers are going to stop paying their dues, you're even dumber than I thought.

Ironically, all three black out media networds deliberately did not show those union thugs tearing down that tent or bashing someone in the face who was trying to help get them out.

JUAN WILLIAMS (on Hannity): Well, you know, I think it's a terrific double standard because I don't think there is any question that this is something that stops people from having honest debate, honest discussion. It is thuggery. It needs to be illuminated by the American media left-wing or right-wing. But when I am looking at the left-wing cable channels, when I'm looking at mainstream, the big broadcast networks last night, I saw none of it. I had to come to Fox.

So, you know, you and I don't agree on much, but we agree on this, and especially the idea that they are tearing down one side's tent. I don't think you can have that in a free democratic society unless you're going to have mob rule. And that's just not right, Sean."

This is the same Juan Williams who continues to fight tooth and nail in support of Obama's agenda.

Even Kirsten Powers, a loyaly democrat strategist, decried the blacking out of this video.

""States with "Right to Work" Laws Have:
Lower Wages and Incomes
The average worker in states with "right to work" laws makes $1,540 a year less when all other factors are removed than workers in other states.1
Median household income in states with these laws is $6,437 less than in other states ($46,402 vs.$52,839).
In states with "right to work" laws, 26.7 percent of jobs are in low-wage occupations, compared with 19.5 percent of jobs in other states.
Less Job-Based Health Insurance Coverage
People in states with "right to work" laws are more likely to be uninsured (16.8 percent, compared with 13.1 percent overall; among children, it’s 10.8 percent vs. 7.5 percent).
They’re less likely to have job-based health insurance than people in other states (56.2 percent, compared with 60.1 percent).
Only 50.7 percent of employers in states with these laws offer insurance coverage to their employees, compared with 55.2 percent in other states. That difference is even more significant among small employers (with fewer than 50 workers)—only 34.4 percent of them offer workers health insurance, compared with 41.7 percent of small employers in other states.
Higher Poverty and Infant Mortality Rates
Poverty rates are higher in states with "right to work" laws (15.3 percent overall and 21.5 percent for children), compared with poverty rates of 13.1 percent overall and 18.1 percent for children in states without these laws.
The infant mortality rate is 15 percent higher in states with these laws.
Less Investment in Education
States with "right to work" laws spend $3,392 less per pupil on elementary and secondary education than other states, and students are less likely to be performing at their appropriate grade level in math and reading.
Higher Rates of Death on the Job
The rate of workplace deaths is 36 percent higher in states with these laws, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Like I say, it could be Karma.

The unions now look like the bad guys and loyal democrat commenators are bashing the main stream media for a clear bias.

Sometimes silver linings are there for a reason.

You're wrong. Many people take whatever job they can get which is not much of a choice.

BTW, there are quite a few people in America who were and are being forced to work, sometimes for no pay.

If they can still choose to pay union dues how is it wrong?
