<quoted text>Funniest post of the day. What 'cha wanna bet that Capitalism outlasts unions? There was a time that unions were needed...that time has PASSED. Buh-bye.
Yea - that's why:
- the American worker is more productive than at any time in history;
- corporate profits are higher than at any time in modern history;
- upper management compensation is higher than at any time in history;

and yet

- American workers have actual had their wages drop; and
- their benefits have actually been cut.

Yep - everyone at the table is making more money than ever- except the worker who produces the profits.

Isn't it great to be non-union, otherwise, those workers might get a bit of the profits - and that would sure suck.

Ah well... As long as workers are willing to sacrifice so much to make my company even more profitable - I guess we'll just have to keep milking them for all their worth.

Just keep fightin those damn unions - we business owners continue to be amazed how you slit your own throats to increase our profits.

Retired Member and officer of a Fraternal Order of Police Lodge and Bargaining Unit, thank you very much.

Proud Union Member for 22 years.

Happily kept a 100% union membership in a "Right to Starve" state; helped the Sergeants and Lieutenants to unionize.

Thanks to our work the average officer who retired at age 55 has a pension of $58,000 a year, with a nice C.O.L.A., and free medical.

Sgts., and Lts, do even better, of course.

Thank you F.O.P.

If you want to impeach Obama for spying on Americans I'm happy to support you - but of course we have to prosecute Bush and Cheney since hey actually started the spying, and added assassination and torture.

Surely you don't want to prosecute the imitator and allow the author to walk free.

Wouldn't that be hypocritical ?

Two things Right Wing Wackos just do fast enough:

- spend American tax money giving expensive military equipment and weapons to Muslim terrorists; and
- get American troops killed fighting on behalf of Muslims against other Muslims.

Yep... Like Bush, Cheney, McCain, and Ryan taught us, Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan just haven't cost us enough, or killed enough Marines, lets do it again in Syria.

And RWWs wonder why Normal Americans shake their heads in wonder.

<quoted text>I would like to give my quick opinion on the impending immigration bill. I think Rubio is a sellout just like most of the other politicians. He tries to sell the new bill saying that border security is an absolute must before any of the rest of the bill goes into effect. Now he says that they must pass the bill and then border security will be implemented. We all know that story. They pass the bill giving 30 to 40 million illegals amnesty and the borders stay wide open just as they always have. Don't worry just another broken promise.
One more think that the Democrats want to pass the bill. They want the illegals to be put on ObamaCare with the rest of America. That should be enough to not only place most people on unemployment with an extra 30 million people but also bankrupt this country.
We will also have to accept another 15 to 20 million illegals as they will flood into this country again to get their freebes and live the grand life. Then it starts all over again.
All you people had better learn to speak Spanish.
Wow - I agree with most of your post - but once again, we have to pretend this isn't as much a Republican initiative as a Democrat one.

Republicans get cheap labor and depressed wages - hey - higher profits !

Democrats get more voters.

It's a win/win - except for the American worker.

"Back to the hole in the boat: America is losing its historic literacy. Recently some 556 seniors surveyed at 55 of the nation’s top colleges -- only 60 percent placed the American Civil War in the correct half of the 19th century. Only 34 percent identified George Washington as the American general at the Battle of Yorktown. Thirty-four percent thought it was Ulysses S. Grant. At 78 percent of the institutions polled, no history whatsoever was required in the undergraduate program. Historian David McCullough said,“We are raising a generation of young Americans who are historically illiterate.”

"If the hole in the boat is to be fixed, it will require the tenacity and ingenuity of the pioneers. Each of us must understand and teach the journey of liberty and justice. It requires steadfast insistence -- we must not allow our collective memory to fade or morph into trendy revisionist versions of political correctness, which becomes a substitute for truth.

"Traditional American culture influenced me greatly as I created the Fox News Channel for Rupert Murdoch. We knew that a fair and balanced news channel could succeed, as long as no views were rejected and conservative views were allowed to be heard.

"The Fox News Channel just finished its 137th consecutive month in first place in cable news, almost 12 years. The top 13 programs in cable news are all on the Fox News Channel. One reason is: We cover news but we also cover stories we know others will not. Like the abortion doctor in Philadelphia, who was actually killing babies after they were born. We covered Benghazi when four Americans were killed, even though no other network would touch the story. It’s an important story because it involves two hundred years of our military ethos, which is: If we ask you to go out in the middle of the night and risk your life for America, we promise that we will backstop you. And, try to get you out if it is humanly possible. In Benghazi we did not do that.

"I have come to the conclusion that even I don’t care what the president of the United States was doing that night. However, I would like to know what the commander in chief was doing that night."
Maybe Fox Noise could do a story about 2001 to 2009.

Their Right Wing Wacko viewers don't believe those years ever occurred.

5,000 dead American troops have a different viewpoint as to which administration was the most lying.

Anybody seen those weapons of mass destruction ?

Anybody notice how all the Muslims loved us for bombing, invading, occupying, assassinating and torturing their countrymen ?

Anybody notice how the bombing, invading, occupancy, and rebuilding Iraq never cost us a penny, those grateful Arabs reimbursed us for everyone ?

Yep - when it comes to lying administrations - 5,000 dead American troops and $6 Trillion Dollars says it was the one right before Obama.

Makes me wonder whether RWWs are the ones buying those anatomically correct dolls - real people are just to challenging for them I guess.

Anyone who works in a business where the union fights, bleeds, and sacrifices for the workers and enjoys the benefits while refusing to join, is a low life, deadbeat, parasitic, Scab.

Anyone who enjoys all the benefits that unions have provided, a 40 hour work week, paid vacation, health insurance, sick pay, holidays, overtime pay, safe working conditions, and more - and then bitches and fights against the very unions that give them the very benefits they enjoy, is a hypocritical, parasitic, Scab.

If you still can't grasp the concept- perhaps a 4 year old might have a crayon and can draw a picture for you.

Or you could buy your own with that Socialist Security you enjoy - a union idea - common contribution for common benefit.

A couple of days ago, the dems were claiming they weren't going to do anyting else about the borders. I'm not sure if some worthless republicans were supporting that or not. You had better open your eyes, libroid.

I hate your politics and I don't like unions,but I do appreciate law enforcement officers. I've only had two or three speeding tickets and I was guilty all three times. I took a calculated risk and I got caught. Case closed. Each time, I pulled over and waited. No need to chase. The officers were respectful and I was, too.(I KNOW you find THAT hard to believe.) You pretty much have a thankless job a lot of the time.
See! I can separate the person from the politics. Now let the hate continue!
