<quoted text>
Anyone and everyone can get "into" a union.
Getting into a union is not the problem, the problem is that bought and paid for legislators have created "Right to Starve" states, where you can have all the benefits created by union negotiations, without that pesky necessity of actually joining the union.
Inevitably, as intended, these laws cause the demise of unions as the freeloaders demoralize and financially devastate the union.
Additionally, labor law enforcement has disintegrated to the point that if you intentionally violate a union members rights, fire him, drive him into poverty, conspire to prevent his employment elsewhere, and otherwise destroy his life, and if, after years of litigation, he prevails at trial, his relief is limited to possibly obtaining the job from which he had been illegally fired.
Good luck with surviving that.
Like the Right Wing always does, in order to stifle the rights of the average working man, they simply remove the incentive attorneys have to pursue enforcement of those rights.
Employers laugh at labor law enforcement.
It always has worked, and always will.
Unions are scum and those that support them blow.

Nationalize the oil companies?- Well, you and Maxine Waters have a lot in common - enough said.
Return -??? to progressive taxation - What - the top 1% paying 35% of the taxes and the top 5% paying
almost 60% of the taxes and the top 10% paying almost 70% of the taxes isn't enough for you? Silly
question - it never is enough for you on the Left, is it?
The government already owns nearly 30% of US land - how much do you think it should control?
How about we go all crazy wild liberal and return to the tax rates we had in 1960, a 42% effective corporate tax rate.

That Eisenhower - what a looney tunes liberal socialist commie. I bet he had a "Hammer and Sickle" under his Army uniform.

Today's effective tax rate, if anything is paid, is 17%.

Let's see, under the 1960 corporate tax rates,(42% effective rate), unemployment was 5.5%.

After cutting corporate taxes 21 times to reduce their taxes, under todays 17% effective tax rate, while profits have exploded, the unemployment rate is now 7.5%.

It would seem to rational people that lowering corporate taxes, caused profits to explode, and unemployment to increase.

It would seem to irrational morons like you that increasing taxes and removing money from the free market would be helpful
Unfortunately, liars aren't willing to admit that federal tax revenues increase whenever tax rates decrease. It was true when Kennedy lowered the rates and when Reagan lowered the rates and when Bush lowered the rates.
You are either too stupid or too dishonest to admit this. Honesty can be learned but there's no fixing stupid.

If you VOTE for people that proclaim their "belief system" outweighs logic and science, I'll oppose you with everything I've got.

Why is "God" political? Because misguided people and politicians seeking to exploit misguided people have made it so. If they would simply "mind their own business" as you claim they do there would be no problem.
Great post.

That's cute how you somehow forgot to mention the 1960's. Oh, but that's right you were talking about Eisenhower. You mean the same Eisenhower who had an anemic 2.4% economic growth rate during his tenure in office, though that actually was a little better than the growth rate for the period of 1944-1960 when growth averaged 2.1%. Then along comes Kennedy who, presuming his positions were sincere and not political posturing, would never be a Democrat today and who realized that cuts for both business and personal taxes were the way to get the economy moving. And what happened as a result of those tax cuts, from 1961-1969, well the economy grew by 48%, unemployment dropped from 6% to 3.8% and twice as many jobs were created as in the 50's. Oh, and has usually been the case with tax cuts, the federal government saw tax revenues increase by 55% from '61-'68. If only we hadn't had Johnson in office to spend all that revenue in a failed War on Poverty and a war in Vietnam that he had to micromanage ("they can't bomb an outhouse without my OK.) thus preventing the military from actually winning the war.
Yeah, given your Leftist leanings, I guess I'd try to ignore the 60's too. Oh, and how are we doing under Obama - well, depending on your source - the growth rate ranges from ,8% to 1.5% to 2.3%- super.

Yes.

They'd be ashamed of many of us.

They'd be ashamed of how Right Wingers have chosen ignorance over knowledge, division over unity, and sycophantic worship of their feudal kings over brotherhood.

But they'd be damn proud of good union men and women who work for the betterment of their fellow Americans and their country.

On second thought it must be THE WB again - name-jack post and a THE WB post within a few minutes of each other.

Clearly we're not dealing with an adult. Must be Republicans.

<quoted text>The cut and paste scold emerges once again, those with whom you agree make an excellent point, those with whom you do not should use their own words.

The point of the post that you don't get the point of, is that, your "concern" is always reserved for those who disagree with you.

You object to Christians being characterized as anti-science, or characterized as uncaring, or the thousand other stereotypes that are really meaningless, but exhibit no such "concern" when the same methods of stereotyping are used by those with whom you agree.

Your "concern" always rings hollow because it is contrived to show how "reasonable" you are.

As far as who has defined "True Christian", if you are not familiar with this line of argument in these discussions then you haven't been paying attention, it's really no different than those who claim to be the True Patriot. And just to be perfectly clear, no I'm not pointing the finger at you, except in the sense of your selective concern for stereotypes.

As far as pointing out specific instances, you got to be joking, this topic contains over 600 pages, and this page will bury itself by this evening.

Laughing at you, not with you. You actually think that name-jacking me isn't pre-pubescent behavior.

Condolences on your upbringing and education.

Just imagine the wonders of a world where everyone is as uneducated as you.

You wouldn't have to feel inadequate all the time, and you wouldn't have to feel so helpless regarding your inability to express yourself.

Hand on to that dream, little man.

Sorry you think I "blow".

When I returned to civilization after leaving the Marines in the early 70's, I was insulted a lot worse than that.

When I worked the projects in law enforcement, the drug dealers insulted me a lot worse than that.

When I was a union official, representing police officers whose jobs were threatened for enforcing the law, many "supervisors" insulted me a lot worse than that.

You gotta work harder to insults than that.

Ain't America great.

Now, I gotta go online and check to make sure my union provided pension for life monthly check was direct deposited.
