Longshoremen are obviously greedy pigs unwilling to share.
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.

So you know admit they are no longer in the AFL-CIO and Obumblercare was a major reason.
Thanks
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.

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.

Conservative republican senators have been, for the past 2 years, structuring their infrastructure to guard against a repeat of the embarrassing defeat of 2012 due to Tea ideologies. Unable to gain the seats to hold the Senate.
Senator Lindsey Graham of S.C. will need to win two votes by the voters to hold his seat. 1} against the {R} Tea candidates 2} against the democratic candidate.
A growing number of {R} candidates will be facing the same gauntlet as Lindsey. Moderate and traditionalist {R’s} will seek to persuade the voters not to vote for the extremist fanatics of their right wing. Tea Senators are under attack with conservative and traditionalist {R’s} seeking to dispel them from their party.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky {R-TEA} is presently sinking from his perch. Veteran senator Lamar Alexander of Tenn.{R-conservative} Is assailed by Ben Cunningham, president of the Nashville Tea Party.
Fissures and rifts will be illuminated within the republican party with their primaries results.
Have they learned their lesson and will they now cast out the Tea? Will they continue to lose more seats due to the taint of Tea? 2014 will expose their future outcomes and their ability to exhibit leadership. Dysfunctional Tea fanatics to over take the conservative only to lose in the general elections of 2016. Republicans future is at a cross road. Failure of the conservative {R} will result in the demise of their party for Decades to come.
Continued infighting within the {R’s} over core issues {Immigration and Financials} would continue to widen a chasm, splitting the party.
One example of the Tea was recently demonstrated in South Dakota and West Virginia where their candidates failed to expand their powers.
Senator McConnell realizes the dangers of his purity ideologies is failing and begins to back pedal. He once opposed Rand Paul’s austere budget measures he now proudly endorses his austerity measures and goes on to support Rand’s domestic Hemp production endeavors! Yet he voted against the violence against women bill and joined the 13 senators to vote against aid to Egypt.
State senator Lee Bright {R-Tea} S.C. Emphasizes that the traditional conservative republican, Mr. Graham, was too concerned with international affaires and too soft on gun rights, personal liberties and immigration. He declares he is doesn’t care if N.S.A. has his phone number, he will continue to fight for South Carolina to have its own currency and opposes Shariah law!
Mr. Bright could pose a problem for Lindsey Graham in his bid for reelection. After all it is South Carolina. Remember when; Lindsey was booed at the “Silver Elephant dinner” in 2006 and then gets a standing ovation in 2013? Such are the ways of South Carolina..
All in all this should be an interesting mid term election in 2014. Preliminary to the 2016 general elections.
Will the republicans have the leadership to govern their own party? They fail that, what chance do they have on the national governing levels? Slim to none..
Hey Bar-nerd,

re:"Unable to gain the seats to hold the Senate."
Shouldn't one possess it first, in order to 'Hold' it?
The Republicans have not had a majority in the Senate since the 109th Congress in 2005 and 2006.

The "embarrassing defeat" of 2012?
112th Congress(2011 and 2012) had 47 Republican Senators
113th Congress(2013 and 2014) had 46 Republican Senators
They lost one seat, the old Massachusetts Kennedy seat. The loss of that Ultra Liberal Land seat was not embarrassing, it was expected.

Checkmate!

House Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday said he supports President Obama's call for a military strike on Syria, as other congressional leaders joined in making the case for an attack -- giving the plan a big boost ahead of a key hearing on Capitol Hill.
