Barack Obama, our next President

Hey did I coin this phrase? If so I want credit for it.
Which religion? The one that advocates love, forgiveness and mercy? Or the one that kills infidels and oppresses women?

The latter doesn't seem rational to me either.

But I kinda like the other one...the teachings I mean, not the institutionalzed version.

If they can still choose to pay union dues how is it wrong?
Right, there is nothing wrong with the individual worker to have the choice and that is what unions dont like individual workers having the right to pay or not to pay dues and this is where the unions become hypocrites when they say they advocate for workers rights and dont feel individual workers should have that right to pay or not to pay dues which gives workers a voice economically against the unions for dissatisfaction.

Apparently, the French actor isn't the only one getting the heck out of dodge.
Laetitia Casta, a wealthy French model (and a Victoria's Secret Angel) moved to London.
Alain Ducasse, a French chef, moved to Monaco to take advantage of their very low tax rates.
French singer and actor Johnny Hallyday moved to Gstaad, Switzerland, to escape the high taxes of France.
Wonder if enough of the wealthy leave France if the ordinary taxpayer can take up the slack?
If not, then what?
Wow 4 people out of over 65 million, oh no the gov't might collapse.

I know some Americans that have moved there to take advantage of their fantastic healthcare system, I guess they'll pick up the slack.

Let's take a little stroll down memory lane.

September 5, 2011 - "Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House had no comment this afternoon after Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa, speaking at an event before President Obama, said of Tea Party activists that, come November, Democrats should 'take these sons of bitches out.'”

That didn't sound very nice to me. Obama must have been in his car smoking or something because he came on stage right after Hoffa said that and didn't say anything about changing the tone.

Michigan gets it Right!! Right On!!! Choice!!!!!
Perhaps to a some yet to be established degree Michigan gets it right. I have no problem with the concept of right to work laws but I'm also a dedicated fan of the real world.

Here's a for instance__the guys that work on the oil rigs in the gulf.

Here's anther one__airline pilots

And my favorite__the on premises workers at the Kennedy Space Center.

If the cable company asked people if they would prefer to have the benefits of their products with or without paying for it, some people without ethics would choose NOT TO PAY.

The same is true of union dues. If ALL workers get the benefits that unions bargain for, there will be some people without ethics who will not pay.

In both cases, the unethical people are behaving in a manner that is unfair, as well as dishonest

<quoted text> Right to work states have lower unemployment and higher pay PeeDee. Get a clue!
Anyone with half a brain knows that the only ones to benefit from right to work laws are Republicans and their wealthy donors. Unions are the major source of funds for the Democratic party, the voice of middle class America. People in Michigan were given a wake up call with this stab in the back from Snyder. Not only will this law be repealed but it will ensure a Democratic governor in 2014. Just another example of Republicans not knowing which fights to pick.

" The following is an example, of how easy it is to qualify. Depression is one of the mental illnesses accepted as a disability under Social Security Disability. If Social Security agrees that a person can’t perform unskilled work, the person will get disability benefits.

Anhedonia or continuous loss of interest in daily activities
Substantial change in weight and appetiteSleep disturbance
Retardation or psychomotor agitation
Loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
Suicidal thoughts
Paranoia, delusions or hallucination
Social Security must consider how your depression symptoms affect your ability to do unskilled work, which requires you to:
understand, remember, and carry out simple instructions make simple work-related decisions respond appropriately to supervision and co workers, and handle changes in routine.
Under this guideline, most unemployed workers would qualify."
You can see why so many liberals are on di
I sometimes get depressed going to my work computer every day and having to listen to all those annoying physicians.

Does that count? I could be real convincing if I had to if the liberals on here wouldn't mind contributing to my "disability" check.

What would be unethical is being forced to buy cable just because you moved into a certain neighborhood
