Wait a minute lets not blame unions for our countries travails.<quoted text>No, I don't. Unions have become creatures, exactly like our so-called "Representatives" in Congress. Neither does the work we intended to be accomplished when they were instituted as part of the fabric of our society. Both have done little for The People, but increasingly, line their own pockets at the expense of those who support them, both financially, and with our trust. Both kowtow shamelessly to interests other than those of their constituents or their members. Public service is for sale to the highest bidder, and if one doesn't recognize this, politically, one is asleep.
They have nowhere near the type of money or power Wall Street is yielding.
