that hardly seems fair...
maybe they can get union jobs...where drinking and getting high during working hours is perfectly acceptable.

Let me help you out. Doing drugs or drinking on the job is what the article was about and all you can do is bring Bush into the mix! How freaking imature can you get with the hate you carry around on your shoulder! Not a wonder why we have a bunch of stupid kids running around with the likes of people like you having kids.

I guess it's okay to bring in a handful of GM workers doing drugs on the job, and not mention George Bush doing drugs on the job and then bailing out on the job he swore to do early.

Let us know which drug abusers we are allowed to mention- can we point to Rush Limbaugh, for example, who was calling for the death penalty for drug king pins when he had $10,000 a month prescription drug habit, or does Oxycontin and cocaine not count? Since they be white man drugs?

Wait wait wait. Bush never did that when he was President and as far as I know he was never fired or even said to where he did drugs or drink on any job. Hell I like the way you left out Obams name and he even admitted doing coke, so what is you freaking point. I will tell you. You see a post by a Right winger and you will do anything to show where a Republican did the same. Non-Sense. Childish BS! Grow Up. The point is that Bush has nothing to do with this, but somehow you needed to put a GOP spin on it. People like you scare me when it comes to voting in a president because you don't vote in the most qualified at all. You just pull the Democrat ticket no matter if it was some Liberal serial killer or some dame Liberal rapist. Wait you already one of them in right!

You don't know what he did or did not do, it is obvious he did do it in the 70's, and a handful of factory workers don't represent the the 375,000 who don't use drugs on the job.

The point is: the UAW had nothing to do with it and that was posted first, and typically: you had nothing to say about it until someone said something about your hero, George "Nostrils" Bush.

You are correct I don't know what he did and you don't either! You can't have it both ways.

The point was that the left will protect the Unions even though they have workers out in the open who are smoking pot and getting drunk on the job and jet you have a Rep firing staffers for tweeting that they snuk a few shots at work and weren't even caught, but yet you and your kind will defend his actions, but I bet if had ben someone on the right who had done this you would be all in their ass! That has hipocrite written all over it. BTW what do you mean typically? Do you know me? I have never posted to you before,so what makes you say typically? You really need to do something about that huge chip on your shoulder.

I am not the one who is pretending that 350,000 UAW workers do drugs on the job. I am not the one who brought it up. Put your finger on the thread and follow it down and see who diverted it.

Funny how you are crying about it to me.

Rush Limbaugh was doing $10,000 or more worth of drugs a month and the right continues to press it's ear against the AM dial. They did not call for him to go to jail, even though he wanted to put people to death for selling the drugs that he used in large enough quantities to be his own drug king pin.

The difference being: a handful of drug users in a union of 375,000 people are but a fraction of the union, and Rush Limbaugh is a *major* spokesperson for the wing nutters and tea beggars such as yourself.

PS: I don't think there is anyone that seriously believes that Bush wasn't doing coke when he went AWOL from the TANG.

What! First off I never said 350,000 UAW worker and yes you did reply to a post to where a poster brought it up and that is the reason why I posted to you. Bottom line was that they were talking about worker and you brought up Bush which had nothing to do with the subject except for the fact that you hate Bush. Your whole post didn't even make sense with the freaking forum and now you are getting mad! You were the one that to devert the whole form into a Bush bashing party and from what I have seen in other forum where you post it's nothing new. What I was trying to point out is tha what you posted had no bearing on the article and yet you are going to sit here like all Liberals and somehow bring Bush into the topic. How freaking shallow is that? Get over it already. Bush has been gone for almost 3 yrs.

Again I don't recall Rush ever being busted at work for drugs and has never been busted for even being high on drugs, so what is your point. All you do is bring someone from the right up and it's clear that you hate the party. Get the chip off of your shoulder because one day when you meet your maker you will have something to explain with all that hatred you carry around. I really feel sorry for you if that's all you have in life that day after day to where you post here and fight and insult people. You must lead a very boring life.

Busted for drugs,$10,000 a month prescription and coke habit, let's see how many days he spent in jail= NONE.

Is he still preaching to the tea beggars ?

Yes, they lap up every wad he shoots in their direction.

Hatred?

I laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh at the fools **like you** that swallow up every drop from that draft-dodging, pill-popping racist bigot shoots into your mouth.

You think Jesus the Christ (praise be upon him) would listen to your favorite dooshbagge? really?
