Qualification--Former member of AFL-CIO IBEW. Just because you came from a far doesn't make you a wise man. You know as little about unions as you know about accounting. All your information is from talking heads. You are sooo FOS. You must be a Braweeehill man.

Yes, produce one with proof that he is not using a telepromter.

She mastered that from watching Ronald Reagan, the all time master of the teleprompter.
Ronald Reagan has the distinction of being the only American President who was declared legally dead while in office.

Pro.....even a nitwit like Palin can give a few off the cuff remarks that sound decent...it was all the other stupid remarks she made on a continuous basis that hurt the GOP ticket....Hitler was a great orator....I wouldn't vote for him....Kennedy and Reagan were good speakers..What's your point? Even a nut like me is good in front of a crowd, it just energizes me.

<quoted text>You are just brainwashed against worker unions by the likes of Braweeehill and the furniture manufacturer's union (association). You have not a clue about how unions really operate and the services they provide to workers and their employers. You probably now believe that Mormon is not a cult just because Twitt opposed raising capital gains taxes. You believe everything the republikan talking heads like Rush Oxycodone Limbaugh tells you.
Remember old Rush railing against drugs and druggies and then he gets busted for drugs?
Take is from someone who knows firsthand. The days where Unions were "needed" are gone.

Just ask the 18K Hostess employees what they think of the union.

Hostess filed for bankruptcy in January 2012 and the top execs were receiving $1 annually to keep the doors open. Hostess lost $341 million in the fiscal year 2011. The money for the compensation that the bakery union wanted simply wasn’t there. Even the Teamsters union looked at Hostess’ books and acknowledged that the only way to keep the operation afloat would have been for workers to accept lower compensation.

The bakery union lost sight of an important truth understood by Samuel Gompers, the founder of the American Federal of Labor, over a century ago. He understood that what workers need is a company that operates at a profit.

A more important question is why do the union members that did strike and lost their jobs continue to think they are entitled to anything extra. I would even question giving them unemployment.

I think in Lenoir where their Corporate Office was, they are converting it into a 5 tier church and skating rink with a Hannah's BBQ in the lobby.

Here is the transcript of her speech. Please show us where she made the remarks that you claim. As Silver said, I see you're been brainwashed by MSNBC!

Also notice that all of the accusations she made about Obama and his plans for our future have come to fruition.

And I never claimed you did. Now only if you had responded to what I charged you with instead of diverting.
I clearly pointed to Silver on the charge you speak of.

Now again, do you think Hitler's atrocity was his socialism?

Thanks for your view that is devoid of any empathy.

<quoted text> Banning any firearm is being strict on the issue. The second amendment is open ended, it doesn't say the govt has the right to ban any firearm, only that we have a right to bear them. Why? So the citizens can protect against the very govt that is trying to ban them.
How ironic, Obama campaigned on helping the people which it's how he obtained power. Unfortunately, he has other ideas on how to destroy our economy.....for another holocaust, no, just a govt takeover.....and it's no secret for those who listen to what he says while watching his actions. You've just been indoctrinated and are either blind to what's going on or you agree with govt controling the people instead of people controlling the govt.....which is what our forefathers intended!
Ok, just so we know what you think "strict" means. I was not aware anyone thought "any" meant "strict".

<quoted text> There's your problem, our forefathers founded a Republic, not a democracy. Our founding fathers, under Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution, "guarantees to every state in this union a Republican form of government".... Conversely, the word Democracy is not mentioned even once in the Constitution. Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a woman's inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin said, "A Republic, if you can keep it." It's fairly obvious we haven't.
Ok, so split some hairs. Either way, Obama is not a dictator. He was elected using the form of government of a republic. Evidently you hate republics, not just dictatorships.
