The population of the US is 311 million.
2% would be 62,200,000.
There are more federal income tax returns than that that pay taxes.
That doesn't count the joint returns where one retun would be two people.
My God you are one dumb POS.
If 20% of our population is under the age of 15, how the fck do you figure 98% of americans pay income tax? Obama lies to get sheep like you all lathered up.

Consider the situation where the legal fee to create a contract in a company of five employees is $1,000 and one of those employees chooses not to pay his share. Then instead of five workers paying $200 each, four must pay $250. That freeloading right-wing bloodsucker has effectively stolen $50 from the other four. I'd suggest that union members take whatever action necessary to protect their property from these thieves.
Your concept of property" is ridiculous.

Why should I pay some malcontents to harass my employer, and possibility jeopardize my job, if I am satisfied with my terms of employment?

Has anyone else posted this yet?

NEWTOWN, Conn.— Multiple people have been killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, according to The Hartford Courant, including the gunman. Some of the shooting victims are children, but it is still unclear if they are among the dead.

...What the heck is going on? First the Oregon shootings and now elementary children? The movie theater shootings took place this past July.

So why these random shootings one after another? What is driving people to do this?

To hell they don't! You obviously do not have experience working in HR for government agencies at the federal, state and local educational level. You are just another example of an ignorant liberal Democrat spewing your lies. It may be based on your ignorance, or you might be doing it on purpose. Either way, what you just said is total BUNK!
Just as I thought, you blew your cover with this reference to education. I was pretty sure you were a junior high school kid from your immature postings, this proved it.

Unions don't protect incompetent workers, they want the bad eggs out of the work environment more than management does. What unions do is insure due process as guaranteed in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Surely you don't object to that, do you?

Just in case some of you missed this from one of the Team Obama Cheerleaders, no less.

NBC NEWS:

Higher taxes, rising prices in store for Americans in 2013

NEW YORK - Consumers will have to dig deeper into their pockets next year to pay for costlier healthcare, more expensive grocery bills and higher taxes, an extra drag on the country's already slow-moving economy.

http://www.nbcnews.com/business/economywatch/...

Wouldn't this kind of news make some people feel very restless?

I have to tell you, I'm becoming concerned.

Unless it has nothing to do with the dismal state of the union and we've just completely gone over the edge and lawlessness is now part of the new landscape.

The story is developing, but I suspect it's yet another story of a crazy person getting access to a gun. Carzy people (like Old Raider for exampe) should NOT have access to guns. They should not drive cars or access to anything that could harm others.

Fox News Contributor Steven Crowder Confirms He Started Fight With Union Protester

People familiar with Breitbart “News” videographers’ penchant for misleading edits immediately smelled a rat when the Crowder clip surfaced on Youtube, edited to show the fight already in progress. Although Crowder was clearly getting the worst of the exchange, he was actively engaged in the fight, and the video conveniently did not show who struck first. Just because your shove-boxing kung fu is weaker than your opponent’s haymakers does not automatically make you the victim.

Still, Crowder addressed the issue of the edits, confirming that there is raw video that supposedly shows he didn’t push anyone, and even accused a man who said he saw video of Crowder pushing someone down of being “a liar, sir!”

However, in an interview with Canada’s Sun News, Crowder says he actually did push the protesters whom he says were “ransacking the tent.”

“We didn’t get violent with them,” Crowder said,“but we did try to push them off the tent. That is true. We tried to push them off the tent,” and also claimed “I’ve been very honest about this.”

Crowder makes his admission at the 4:32 mark in this video:....

There are many things that aren’t clear about this incident, but it is clear that Steven Crowder and Lee Stranahan have not been “very honest” about this, because Stranahan edited the video to omit the start of the fight, and Crowder failed to correct Hannity’s assertion that Crowder “didn’t push anybody,” and that makes everything about this narrative suspect.

To hide them from the U.S.
There were many reports of Russian planes and trucks doing just that. There were even reports of whole buildings disappearing. Some reports stated that we delayed the invasion to give Russia time to get them out of the country. Lord knows we waited long enough. There were reports of things being buried in the sand including fighter aircraft. Iraq is a big place of nothing but sand. Who knows what's still buried out there. did he have them? I don't know. I know I was glad he got took out rather than find out the hard way.
