If anyone still doesn't believe Bill Clinton leans more to the right than the left, this interview with O'Reilly will remove all doubt. Parts 1 and 2:

It also might open some eyes about O'Reilly's ability to conduct an excellent interview and a lively and respectful debate with a former democrat president.

The Amazing Hypocrisy of the "Right To Work"
In terms of practical economic impacts, I think the right-to-work controversy set off by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's decision to undertake a lame duck flip-flop is perhaps overstated. If you compare Montgomery County in labor-friendly Maryland to Fairfax County in right-to-work Virginia, your overwhelming impression will be that these are very similar affluent suburbs of the same city. But apples-to-apple comparisons are hard to find and since union rules are highly correlated with other political indicators it's easy to cherry pick points. The conservative parts of America are generally poorer than the liberal parts, but also faster-growing. So if you want to claim that right-to-work laws are immiserating or growth-friendly, you can help yourself to whatever statistics you like.
But what's not murky is the absurd hypocrisy that has to go into making the case for right-to-work legislation.
The way this works is that if there's a labor union at a given business establishment that's bargaining for some higher pay or benefits or better work-rules or whatever it's rapidly going to find that there's a free rider problem. Everyone in the relevant class of workers gets the benefits whether or not they join the union. So something the union is often going to want to bargain for is some kind of rule stating that everyone hired in the relevant class has to join the union, or has to pay dues to the union, or something else along those lines.
Now naturally an employer's not going to want to agree to that. But he's not going to want to agree to higher pay or more vacation days either. That's why it's a negotiation. A right-to-work law is a law banning employers from making that concession.
The impact, obviously, is to make it hard to form strong unions in a given jurisdiction and thus make it a more business-friendly jurisdiction. But note that this same trick works across the board. You could just ban pay raises in general. Any one firm, after all, faces a dilemma. On the one hand it would be more profitable to pay people less. On the other hand, it's also unprofitable to have everyone quit to go work for some other higher-paying company. So a law against pay raises would make everyone more profitable, spurring crazy business investment and job creation. Except nobody does that because it would be (a) insane and (b) obviously unfair. And yet the proponents of right-to-work laws are generally exactly the people most inclined to stand up for freedom of contract under other circumstances.

If it ever got THAT bad again, do you not have faith enough in the peoples right to assemble, FREELY? Why WASTE $ that should NOT be wasted--ESPECIALLY these days in fiscal cliff times!!
(if you think about it--think of ALL the GOOD such could do, rather than merely WASTED and lobbyied away USELESSLY, shamelessly and sinfully-- when such COULD be applied to MUCH better purposes-like decent healthcare for everyone!!)

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 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.
John, you miss my point. Union membership is a choice - not a mandate. I get sick to death of listening to folks whine about 'having to belong to a union', when the job they applied to do was unionized at the time they applied. People on here talk a good game about personal responsibility, but exercise it only when it suits their personal agendas. If being non-union is that important to them, they shouldn't apply at union shops. And if the only shops available are union ones, CHANGE OCCUPATIONS, or move. The fact that these options may not be 'easy' or 'pleasant' to implement, is immaterial - stick to your principles, folks, if you have any...

Bobby Jindal: Birth Control Should Be Over-The-Counter

The price of birth control would be driven down if companies had to compete to sell it in the marketplace, and women only visit gynecologists to obtain birth control prescriptions because "big government says they should," he said.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/14/bobb...

"Democrats have wrongly accused Republicans of being against birth control and against allowing people to use it," he writes. "That's hogwash."

I was going to just ignore John Galt's baseless claim that teachers in one subject area work harder than in another subject area. But it does provide an excellent example of why unions are necessary to protect workers from the whims of knuckledraggers like this.

How the GOP Lost National Security

Democrats have filled the long-standing national-security gap with Republicans not by offering an alternative vision for international affairs, but by demonstrating to voters greater competence in executing foreign policy—and successfully framing Republicans as reckless and irresponsible when it comes to national security.

http://nationalinterest.org/commentary/how-th...

nowadays is seems that only the right wing sites have anything good to say about Republicans. and not even all of those are on that weak bandwagon.

There are costs in negotiating and enforcing a contract. Ensuring a safe working environment and lobbying for remedies to work related problems takes time and money. Protecting against management abuses of power such as nepotism and favoritism requires oversight. No reasonable person believes that each individual is better off bearing the burden of these tasks themselves.
Don't fool yourself, non-union workplaces use models developed through union efforts and non-union workplaces also benefit from the competitive salaries generated by union contracts.
Its naive to say unions have outlived their usefulness.
you call this insuring safe working enviroment and then being forced to place the degenerates back in the plant risking safety.

Chrysler Group LLC says it was forced to reinstate 13 degenerates who were fired from its Jefferson North Assembly Plant two years ago after being filmed by a local television station drinking and smoking what the network suggested was a controlled substance before and during work.
