Costco 's union are The Teamsters. Go ask a Costco employee the next time you go in a Costco store . 78% of Costco employees just voted to remain with the Teamsters.
While some former Price Club locations in California and the northeastern United States are staffed by Teamsters, the majority of Costco locations are not unionized. The Teamsters Union represents about 15% of Costco employees.

If the company becomes completely unionized, then Galt will shop elsewhere

Just because the Costco serving your tribe of NYC Bocajews is unionized does not mean that the entire company is union.

Tell Galt and Waxman that you are sorry.
Bocajew Jean from Queens is 85 years old and brain dead.

The old hag thinks the entire country is like New York City.

Jean misses the old A&P in her ghetto.

I'm dissapointed to have to report that only 11 Traygone/Oblama look a likes were killed in Chicago this weekend., Hopefully next week will be better.
There is no political mileage in black-on-black murder, so Obama doesn't give a damn.

Neither does anybody else.

Obama is no better. He keeps feeding the left with charity and gifts. Thats how the left retains its votes during election time. Who wouldnt want to get free stuff at taxpayer expense. The left secures its voting base by giving free stuff.

I think Trayvon had a chip on his shoulder against white authority figures and it cost him his life that night. A "bad attitude" does not make him a "thug" or a bad kid. It makes him seventeen.
You know very well that I thought the jury "did the right thing" but that is not justification for lying about Trayvon. You are obviously one of those people that puts people down to feel better about himself. Get help.
Trayvon's bad attitude would have gotten worse with age. The only question was prison or the morgue.

Isn't it normal to have a bad attitude toward local burglars? I can't imagine having a good attitude toward one. That is who Zimmerman was profiling.
As far as "bad judgment" is concerned, I only have the evidence presented in court to base my opinion on and my answer would be no. However, IF Zimmerman had taken it upon himself to confront Trayvon without waiting for police to arrive, then that would have been bad judgment. However, the evidence doesn't support that theory. Personally, I see nothing wrong with following a suspicious person in the neighborhood. It seems like a normal response considering the rash of burglaries. What isn't normal is to respond to being followed by punching someone in the face.
Following and observing suspicious people is what Neighborhood Watch people do.

If the cops got their fat butts out of their squads cars and patrolled the streets on foot once in a while, perhaps neighborhoods like this would be safer and the Neighborhood Watch would not be necessary.

Cops never prevent crime. They just scoop up the bodies.

Until such time as the "wealthy" are taxed on their actual income rather than their earnings after the accounting for subsidies, credits and deductions, they will not pay their fair share.
As a reminder, Mitt Romney made $13.7 million and paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes, giving him an effective tax rate of 14.1%. No matter how you look at it, that is not "fair" taxation.
FACT: According to the Center for Budget and Policy Practices, the top 1% control 43% percent of the financial wealth in America. The wealthiest 400 Americans have the same combined wealth as the poorest half of Americans -- over 150 million people. The top 10% control 83% of the financial wealth in America. So, to be "fair" the top 1% should be paying 43% of Federal income taxes instead of 36.73%. And the top 10% should be paying 83% instead of 71%.
Eventually, the top The top 1 percent will learn that their income depends on how the other 99% live but, if history is any indication, it will be too late.
Oh, as far as 2007 earnings are concerned, thanks to the Bush tax cuts, the wealthiest 1% were able to take their Bush windfall and invest it in the stock market. "In 2007, the average household in the top 1 percent had an income of $1.3 million, up $88,800 from the prior year."
Wealth and income are two entirely different things.

Allen Iverson earned $10 million a year , but spent it as fast as he earned it and has nothing left.

On the other hand, the vast majority of "millionaires", those with a net worth of $1 million or more, never had more than modest middle class incomes.

Read "The Millionaire Next Door" and learn something.

Trayvon managed to get to the age of 17 without getting in trouble with the law. Gold teeth and tattoos might very well be a sign of a typical teen at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High in Miami. You don't know. Yet, you chose to tag Trayvon as a thief. People like you are the very reason we have a racial divide in America.
Gold teeth, tattoos, and facial jewelry are tickets to unemployment.

Just one question for you.

Why do you continue to make obviously incorrect statements that could be checked with a minimum of effort?

Are you just plain lazy or don't you give a shit?

Or are you senile?

Maybe the2 nd degree was trumped up but, I'm no lawyer &, I could've made the case for 3rd degree using Zimmerman's statements alone. 3rd degree only needs the proof that. his actions less to Martin's death, with an underline felony. Well, he self admitted to stalking Martin. Case closed, 10 to 15! They over reached & got burned for it. Asfar as not having a case from the beginning, blacks get charged first & asked questions later, FACT!

You are one twisted dude. Now your degree is in psychological behavior, huh psycho? You are totally consummed with hatred, political fanaticism and obviously demented. For an lying idiot like you to cast shadows on people that you have no idea about bares witness to that "FACT". Also a sad indication of your own short comings. The degree of plain hatred towards Obama on here by scumbags like you and a host of others is far more revealing about your own short comings than the parties you malign. So you see your daily rantings are far more a sign of your own troubled world. Seek help..IDIOT.
