we now need to work on reversing these supper gold plated pensions the union pricks have extorted from the rest of us
--- people can retire in their fifty's and make the same amount , or more ,.... in retirement ,that they made when they worked -
one union jerk off in NY retired at 45 --and will make $90,000 a year for the rest of his life --
it must stop !-
pension reform is the next move -
screw the over paid union jackoffs -
it is time to fight back --
when the real revolution comes -
the big union leaders WILL be sent prisons -and many of the so called rank in file too ,......
it is the same a stealing -
the union thugs and crooks must be made to pay for their crimes

So your actually supporting the Unions ? Why would you do that ? Do you realize that they just over pay people to do jobs we can get morons to do for less ? Hopefully once we get everyone living in substandard conditions this country can really start its turn around. No pain no gain baby !!
