<quoted text>The unions are the ones who negotiate the benefits. You think corporations give benefits out of the goodness of their heart? You don't know nothing.
Most people work for corporations that are non-union. Salaries and benefits are driven by competition for the best employees.

Individuals are compensated based on their individual worth.

Ever talk to a classroom teacher about their feelings about being paid the same as a gym teacher or librarian who does a fraction of the work that they do?

A majority of Michigans are pro-union. There elected lawmakers are idiots. That's why the people are rioting.

Sorry about that.I've been thread surfing and didn't catch the satire.
One of the reasons why many people voted for Obama, the tree of liberty is due for some watering and they just want to get it on sooner rather than later.
LOL and those fools think that Obama has the popular vote!

If people wanted to belong to labor unions as much as you seem to think, then union membership would be much larger and right-to-work laws would not matter.

Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-finded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-

Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.


Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

He began his presidential campaign in 2007, and in 2008, after a close primary campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he won sufficient delegates in the Democratic party primaries to receive the presidential nomination. He then defeated Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote.

On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.

Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. In May 2012, he became the first sitting U.S. president to publicly support legalizing same-sex marriage. Sixteen years earlier, in 1996 as a candidate for the Illinois state senate, Obama had said that he was in favor of same.

Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

I wasn't aware that the Chinese Wu Mao Dang had an American branch. Are you located in N.Y. as a matter of logistics or do you receive instructions from your Chinese/Obama handlers via the internet?

Are you and your fellow propagandists covered by Obamacare benefits or do you receive Acupuncture treatment? Or Both?

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.
Wrong, Obamacare doesn't force abortion on the Catholic bishops in any way unless you subscribe to their belief that a fertilized egg becomes a fully invested human being. This concept also known as "personhood" was put before voters in conservative Mississippi and was defeated. It also goes against the writings of Church Fathers like Augustine and Aquinas. When the church operates an entity in the commercial world like a hospital, college or university that serves and hires non Catholics and competes with non Catholic entities then they can't force their beliefs on those that don't adhere to their faith.
Obama won the Catholic vote despite the pronouncements of the bishops. Catholics by and large don't hold any allegiance to bishops who are assigned by the Vatican without any input from the people in the dioceses that they rule.
I notice that right wingers like you seem to ignore the fact that Christians in Iraq suffered forced dislocations and many were killed following our invasion of that country. If the Syrian Christians put their support behind the Assad regime which is killing its own people then they have no one to blame but themselves. It's all the more reason why religious groups should stay away from politics.

Everybody has personal beliefs but that doesn't mean that you can force these beliefs on others. At the same conference he also stated that he was against a constitutional amendment defining marriage.
You're an idiot.
