Now Timmy,

We know that you can negotiate "mano y mano" with AT&T, Apple, GE, GM, WalMart, Goldman Sachs, and all other multi-billion and trillion dollar multi-national corporations and you kick their asses and make them succumb to your demands.

But some of us mere mortals who don't have the billions of dollars, the lobbyists, and the politicians in our pockets, we need unions to negotiate fair labor contracts.

Damn, we only wish we had your super powers,
cause without unions the middle class takes pay and benefit cuts while the corporations enjoy record high profits, the productivity of the average American worker skyrockets while the worker's pay effectively decreases, and employers send jobs overseas further increasing their profits while externalizing costs by increasing unemployment and the costs to taxpayers.

Wait ...

We've already been there and got the t-shirt.

Maybe we'll learn - but, doubt it.

Good point.

Teddy understood that capitalism, just as much as socialism, is a danger to any democracy or representative republic if mitigated and regulated.

Thankfully, Teddy was rich enough, independent enough, and patriotic enough to dismantle the monopolies, socialize the natural resources, and regulate capitalists.

Happy New Year !

All those red shirts around here I thought it was Disney Gay Day.
Then I saw all the Georgia rust buckets on the roads and realized it was the game.

While it's true that anyone can grow up to be President, that doesn't mean that everyone has the power of the Presidential Pulpit. As Informed Opinion pointed out a group of workers has more power than any single individual, a point that you continue to ignore.

No, because a group if employees has collective power, while an individual has only individual power.

Absent unions, you are as powerful against a multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporation as my Uncle's cats were he kept in the barn to kill the rats. Whenever one of his cats got sick, aggressive, or unproductive, the cat went to "cat heaven", and was quickly replaced by the next stray and hungry cat that happened by.

The multi-national multi-billion dollar corporation cares less about you than my uncle cares about his cats.

But hey, if it makes you feel better To believe that John Hammergren of McKesson took $131 Million a year in compensation, Richard Kinder of Kinder Morgan took $61 Million a year, and David Cote of Honeywell took $56 Million, lose sleep that their employees might be suffering from low wages and layoffs, go ahead and take comfort in that fiction.

I think it more rational to understand they thank God every day that working class Americans are doing all they can to assure they, the working class, are powerless, impotent, pawns to be used and discarded.

Hey, how else can you explain working people fighting so hard to assure that Bill Gates and Mitt Romney pays a lower tax rate,(when he paid anything at all), than the clerk at 7-11.

Residential Mortgage Interest Deductions,

Great post.

My subsidy to a rational, well-considered, budget neutral, growth stimulating, employment creating, recognition of God's Bible spoken love of capitalism.

Unions are like a herd of greedy cattle eating all the lush green grass from a pasture until until it turns into a desert and then they have nothing left to eat.
