I am so thankfull that my ansisters didnot settle for Compromise. They chose to have "WAR". Just examine where that war has led America ?
The Revolutionary war gave all Americans what we have TODAY. Why would we consider giving up our LIBERTY, of being a free INdividual ?
A mans labor is all one has to sell and give. Obama says VOLINTEER, sign up for subsity. Bull Shit..
American's pay their own way and it is time to buy BULLETS.
As for CAT. Pour "Bolt setting compound into it's tiolets. If the crap won't flow, The CAT won't GO !
CEMENT ITS' CAT BOX... It will be meowing for a place to sht.
Obama wants people to work, and wants to keep taxes low for THE WORKING MAN...you are on a rant here about the working man..so I would think you would BE FOR keeping the working man's taxes low.

You will not do sh it with your bullets any way coward, so why buy them ? You need to buy a dress and some lipstick with all of the crying you're doing, b!tch.

Cat broke the union!--mostly true.

But lets look at the other side of that coin.
The vasmajority of the scabs that went to work got let go as soon as the union went back.

Thats the truth also.
I know atleast 20 who went to work with a promise by cat when the contract was settled. They would still have a job. BANG! Two weeks after they let them go.

If you think cat loves the people that stand by them your really need to get a clue.

Don't try to blow smoke up my ass by a reply, either.

I am retired from upper management. I saw the walk and the talk.

Just check out how much they are subcontracting out.

But you will see all of them shortly, in a shop near you.
