Say I listed the reasons why I chose to eat at a certain restaurant "Billy Bob's.
My reasons might be,
Good service
Good food
relaxing atmosphere
Good location
Traffic free travel route
Good wine selection
You would run screaming thru the streets " OMG OMG OMG RealDave picks his restaurants based on how much wine he can drink. OMG OMG OMG"
The headline implied 40,000 quit the union because of Obamacare.
That is a lie. They are still in a union & Obamacare was not the primary reason.
Dave- as usual-goes over the cliff.

In an August 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, leaders of the 40,000-member union said they have become “increasingly frustrated” with the federation’s policy positions on such matters as immigration and health care reform.
..because they recognize that ObamaKKKare will reduce their medical benefits and that amnesty for illegal aliens will cost them their jobs.

Longshoremen are obviously greedy pigs unwilling to share.

They are in the union they were always in, dumbasss. Their union ended their association with the AFL-CIO.

Obamacare was not the major reason.

Read the letter & grow up.

Actually Obamacare does not reduce their healthcare benefits nor taxes the union or their members for any of it.

The evil warmonger Gaddafi was planning world conquest with his advanced military armaments! Thank Allah that Bozo Hussein Obama used the No-Fly Zone to shoot down and destroy Gaddafi's flying tanks, flying howitzers, flying APCs and flying navy boats.
But-but-but, Gaddafi had 20,000 err 500 stingers err manpads that may or may not have even worked.

Same same Assad who's Army blows, Navy blows and Air Force sucks. What Assad does have is a halfway decent air defense system consisting of hand me down Soviet stuff donated by Russia and Iran and that's likely what the US would strike. Minus an air defense capability Syria is helpless against Israel.

The resignation letter indicates that the primary reason is other unions poaching longshoremen's jobs and crossing their picket lines.

ObamaKKKare is another serious dispute.

Hasn't the Left been burned enough already with their use of children as political pawns to make adult statements?

Pelosi thinks not.

Pelosi makes a statement about talking to her grandson, who calls her Mimi, about going to war with Syria.

Too late lily, I knew the person would partially post the law he thought covered it leaving out the "IF" clause-he did.
The Left's gasp of Laws always leaves out things not supportive.
You -on the other hand- are a hypocrite screaming research as you can barely find your way beyond five progressive sites.
You're a true moran.

Wahabbists are just members of a sect of Islam and not a terrorist group as you claim.
Perhaps you should quit calling ll Muslims terrorists.
Because one is Muslim, is married to a Muslim, friends with a Muslim, or spoke to a Muslim in the past 10 years does not make them a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
This anti - Islam stance you right whiners take is jus bigotry, and we know you people are rally good at being bigots.
You are an idiot. How many fucking times have you read in my posts "all Suni terrorists are Wahhabists"?

Why don't you just educate yourself on what's going on in the world before you open your ignorant mouth.

Direct connection with the Muslim Brotherhood makes a person a direct contact with the Muslim Brotherhood, you moron. That's who we have in the White House today, idiot. Why don't you go back to my posts last week for a goddam list of their names, dupe.

So, you're going to get someone like Ben Bernanke to just print up some health care assets so everyone will still receive the same level of health care after the number of consumers has increased?
Is that the plan?
You're an idiot.

ObamaKKKare imposes a 40% excise tax on medical benefits exceeding a specified annual cost. The net result will be to reduce benefits to that annual cost.
