I am a union worker and the right to work will not bring more jobs. It will lower pay for union employees. Not a good vote.

Most of em' are overestimated their own abilities-----whadduya think? Honest appraisal.....not just what ya think some want to read! Uh yeah my skills need improving! LOL
You just proved that you believe in communism.
Your ideal world would be for the gubment to give you a monthly stipend that is equal to a Scientist or Doctor, just because "everyone ain't created equal".
Thanks for being the one on here to finally admit that union equals communism in many ways.

It would be political suicide for obama to unleash the occupy anarchists on the fans attending the Super Bowl. It won't happen. Though Obama's minions would LOVE IT, Obama's handlers won't risk it during an election year.

Occupy can disrupt ports, business, burn the American Flag, harass police and have the Democrat Party officials allow laws to be broken.
I wonder how they will stand up against thousands of beer drinking nacho eating football fans if they stand in the way of their getting to their seats to watch the kickoff? I mean, in America, there are degrees of importance …..
This could spell disaster.. We all know how rabid football fans can be. They won’t take kindly to people disrupting their Super Bowl activities like tailgating and the game itself. They spent good money for their tickets, lodging and transportation and they won’t stand for a bunch of smelly punks trying to ruin their day.
Ya can’t fix stupid… but a rabid football fan will certainly try.
I'd love to see the football fans knock the sht out of those worthless occupy punks.

Well I hope so! Union workers get overpaid and for what? What does a union worker do to entitled him to being overpaid? Not a damn thing. The cost of goods go up when the costs to produce them gets too high. Union wages drive the cost of goods up. There is no difference between the expertise of a union electrician from an non union electrician.

Not at all! Actually believe that the Earned Income Tax Credit where people who pay no taxes but receive two grand back should be scrapped. Believe also that some (not all) who draw substities of any type should be reined in. A lot of people with problems need basic money management.

On the other hand some are vastly overpaid and should be brought back to earth on their true worth! Is a CEO who determines that it is cheaper too manufacture an item in a third world country than made in the USA deservant of a multi-million salary? Your fifth grader can make a decision like that at a fraction of the cost! Do they really deserve a tax reduction?

My contention is that if this Country does not start pulling together it will self destruct. All need to make sacrifices-----anyone who cannot see this is a total idiot and should be horse-whipped (real or imaged).

Union protestors marched from the Statehouse lawn into the Super Bowl Village about 12:30 p.m., shortly after the vote. Some protestors marched along Capitol Avenue toward Lucas Oil Stadium — passing beneath the popular zipline attraction that’s part of the city’s festivities before Sunday’s Super Bowl — while others marched onto Georgia Street, where concerts and displays greeted visitors for the game.

Protestors were chanting “United we stand, divided we fall” as they were shown on local television news during the noon hour. Police reported that some people waiting to ride the zipline chanted “Super Bowl” back the protestors, but all the efforts had remained peaceful.

<quoted text>Yes, wages will fall-----to a reasonable level?-----only time will tell! Why instead don't we try this.....most corporations have several employees that make over a million dollars a year-----why not cut one of those (the corporate golf represenative?) and instead of paying him a million dollars create twenty five jobs that pay forty thousand a year-----even if they do nothing but play cards all day it would improve the countries economy! Better yet the corporations could loan them to local state, county, cities for various uses and pay back for all of the perks that they have been awarded in the last years! Daniels has given the State away to business-----his payoff comes later?
Thank God Daniels has the integrity and the back bone to keep the State Debt to a minimium. In the pathetic remains of Unioncrat California, the current State Debt is an extinction level $500 BILLION.

From: Indy Channel rtv6 in Indianapolis

DEMOCRAT FRONT-RUNNER JOHN GREGG SAYS IT'S TIME TO MOVE BEYOND RTW

INDIANAPOLIS -- The presumed front-runner for the Democratic nomination for Indiana governor in 2012 issued a statement regarding right-to-work Wednesday that rankled some of the party faithful.

In his short statement, John Gregg poked at fellow Democrats who staged walkouts in protest of right-to-work.

"It's time to move beyond this divisive issue. Indiana needs a governor and a legislature that show up for work every day and works together with one focus -- creating jobs, whether it's for a union or non-union workplace," Gregg's statement read. "Because in the end, it doesn't matter if you're in a union or not -- if you get laid off, you're not bringing home a paycheck."

John Gregg has the right idea.

“WE'VE MET THE ENEMY. HE IS US.”

The word "integrity" should never be used in a sentence, paragraph, page, chapter, or book when making reference to Daniels.....that is something that he is completely devoid of!

Backbone? Notice how he manages to appear in public when the going is good and hides in the shadows when shame is on his house?

Before heaping praise on him wait and see what happens after his term expires and he cannot "lose" three hundred million. How many dollars I-69 has set the State back, how much it will cost too restructure progams he has destroyed!

Mitt Romney sent over 100,000 jobs to india,china,and mexico and he is part of the problem the USA is having today and MITT will continue doing some even if he is president,plus MITT is 1/2 Mixican his mother was a 100%mexican and Mitt and his family live in mexico ,until he runs for an office here in the USA,plush his $250 to $300 Million dollars are in a foreign bank not the USA,We have had newt before ,forget him and santorum sleeps with the dead and plays with the dead and he is a sick,sick,sick man..

Reasons why OBAMA will win ,once again

Ron Paul 2012
-2 votes
1. union backlash
2. Bush was the cause of this mess, bail outs etc. then Obama, helped it along.
3.Blacks will not vote for Mitt, Newt or Rick.
4. Hispanics will not vote for Mitt, or Newt or Rick and maybe even Ron Paul.
Democrats and Independents will not Vote for, Mitt or Newt or Rick.
5.The youth and Ron Paul supporters will write his name in if he is not the Front man.
5. And the poor a very large block of voters this time around will not have some one tell them they should get a Job when there is no Jobs to be had.
If Ron Paul is not the GOP front man, the GOP will be shocked in the general election, they have no clue.
The turn out in Iowa and New Hampshire will show a person whats going to happen.GOP they know this,and they probally know by now, how much trouble they really are in.(yet the turn out for Ron Paul was great)
So its their call,and from what Ive seen by way of the manipulation in SC and New Hampshire they have made a bad one.
another point if they think that JEB BUSH will save theire party, people thats one way to really get OBAMA back in office!!!
this country will be Socialist or Constitutional

Will Hoosiers really abandon their children to a lifetime of Tax Debt Slavery by voting for Union thugs who pretend to be Democrats at election time?
