OK I agree with the benefits etc of trade unionism.I also believe there is a certain segment of society which are incapable of working and supporting their families without these crutches.
Sir,true Americans can always support themselves without selling thier souls to trade unionism.Thru education and hard work any American can becomer the "screwer" instead of the "screwee".
I too would worry about your friends and family because it's going to hit the fan after November 2010.
Spell correctly, it's So 2 letters, not Sir...

Don't misunderstand typo's for ignorance.My job always had lower level clerks (union workers)to correct my spelling and grammar.
It was pretty funny when they (the unionized clerks) handed out the bonus's at the end of the year too.
degree or no degree, you seem to be really stupid. Must be the hold no child back syndrome.

I almost missed this one and it's perfection.

my quote-"Someone else payed his college tuition"

his response-"WRONG.... Undergrad degree paid for by the GI Bill. Grad degree by tuition refund at work (a non-union job)"

Where I come from that's someone else. It sure isn't him ? Pretty impressed with yourself, aren't you? Thanks for making my point ! Put any insult you want in this space,_________ I can't stop laughing.

AP Photo/Arturo RodriguezUnder President "Change," out-of-control union abuses and corruption have exploded onto the scene across the country. Below are the top ten most egregious cases, as documented by the New York Post, the National Legal and Policy Center and the New York Daily News.
Only one was from before our bought-and-paid-for union puppet-in-chief took office and began immediately dumping truckloads of endless borrowed tax dollars into union coffers (as I noted here).
10. Feb. 11, 2010: Anthony Rumore, ex-president of Scarsdale's Teamsters Local 812, pleaded guilty in federal court to making false statements related to extorting free labor out of his membership.
9. Aug. 5, 2009: Michael Forde, ex-head of the city's District Council of Carpenters, was hit with a 29-count indictment for taking bribes from members -- in exchange for allowing them to avoid mandatory contributions to their pension funds. Forde beat similar charges several years before.
8. Jan., 2008: Salvatore Battaglia, President of the Amalgamated Transit Workers Union Local 1181, pleaded guilty to taking payoffs and said several school bus company owners have made regular payments to his union for decades.
7. April 21, 2010: Wayne Mitchell, ex-president of Communications Workers of America Local 14170 (representing mail room workers), pleaded guilty in a Manhattan federal court to embezzling $200,000.
6. April 23, 2010: Mitchell's immediate successor, Larry DeAngelis, pleaded guilty to stealing $60,000 from the union.
5. May 11, 2010: Peter Thomassen, assistant supervisor of the above-mentioned carpenters union, resigned after a report showed huge amounts of spending on lavish parties, junkets and steak dinners. An indictment is expected.
4. Last May, ex-Central Labor Council boss and former Queens Assemblyman Brian McLaughlin was sentenced to 10 years for embezzlement -- including from the electricians union he once ran.
3. Feb. 16, 2010: Thomas Pokrywczynski, former secretary-treasurer of Buffalo-area Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1342, pleaded guilty in federal court to theft of $254,000 in union funds.
2. June, 2010: Daniel Hughes, former head of the Field Supervisor Association representing Port Authority workers, pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court to looting $300,000 in members' dues over five years.
1. Feb. 17, 2010: Melissa King, former benefits administrator of the "Sandhogs" tunnel-digging union, was indicted for embezzling some $40 million from three benefit funds she oversaw.

Finding a job is rough everywhere, turning on each other will not solve the problem ! The problem began with the government thinking it can spend it's way out of depression,NOT RECESSION ! IF WE DON'T TURN AROUND AMERICAN VALUES TO WHAT IT ONCE WAS WE ARE A DOOMED COUNTRY !Christians and whites better stand up to the bullies that have their foot on their necks and talk about how their going to kick ass or there will be no country for anyone.PEOPLE LOOK AROUND WE HAVE DECLINED TO THE POINT WHERE NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS RESPECT FOR AMERICA ANYMORE!(WHEN THE TROOPS COME HOME THIS TIME OBAMA IS DOING AWAY WITH THE AMERICAN MILITARY IN AMERICA,IT'S GREATNESS IS OVER)EVEN IF HE DOES NOT GET A SECOND TERM HE'S DONE HIS JOB VERY WELL DESTROYING AMERICA ! IT WAS NOT UNIONS THAT KILLED THE AUTO INDUSTRY. IT WAS OTHER COUNTRIES MAKING CHEAPER AND BETTER CARS.WHEN A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY VOTES FOR A PERSON WITH A MUSLIM NAME THAT CAN'T PROVE WHERE THEY WENT TO SCHOOL OR WHERE THEY WERE EVEN BORN BECAUSE HIS SKIN COLOR HAPPENED TO BE THE NEW IN THING! THIS PROBLEM GOES DEEPER THEN UNIONS !AMERICA IS SO DIVIDED WE ARE DOOMED ! PICKING ON EACH OTHER WON'T MAKE IT BETTER MR HOFFA !
