Labor's plan to fight back

Dec 12, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Politico

Labor unions, stung by an unexpected setback in Michigan, where Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed a right-to-work law Tuesday limiting their ability to collect dues, are eyeing a large-scale counteroffensive against the conservative state leaders who have slashed away at union power since the 2010 midterm elections.

Do you think it is OK to steal from some to give to others?
No, but it's okay to tax those who can afford it, to give to those who can't.

If you object to stealing, go after the corporations.

So no, Unions haven't done a thing for me, except take away my god damn Twinkies and Little Powdered donuts.

I don't have to deal with you gimme, gimme, gimme, Union types.

But I do have to deal with whiney people.

The tax rate for the top 2% isn't the problem. It's the loopholes.

If you call it stealing, then it was just stealing back what should otherwise have been paid to workers in the form of respect and a living wage. You would not understand that concept though would you? I would say the unions met adversity, they organized, and they helped their members share in the wealth that would have otherwise gone to a few greedy owners and shareholders. Got some advice for you Goober take a course or two in American business history especially as relates to the labor movement and how it led to a strong middle class and the reasons it came about. Till then just shut your big mouth and listen (if you're even capable), try to gain a new perspective other than what you allow yourself to be force fed by Fux news and the crazy right wing bloggers you have your nose into for hours a day.

MICHIGAN, the state that supported President Obama by a margin of more than 9%, is UNDER ATTACK by ALEC on ALL FRONTS.

Extreme far-right wing legislation is being crammed into the lame duck session.

We have unelected Emergency Managers replacing elected officials.

Women's rights to abortions are being curbed.

Public schools are being taking over and privatized.

Unions are told to continue without dues. It's called "pro-union", "pro-worker", but even though it's being promoted as something positive, it specifically EXCLUDES police and firefighters. If it is so good, why punish our first-responders????

The TRUTH is that Snyder is USING the POLICE for his new POLICE STATE.

Remember, as goes Michigan, so goes the country. Thank God, we didn't elect Rmoney, the other supposedly moderate businessman. They are ALL ALEC and KOCH Bros. PUPPETS.

Prepare for the end of the MIDDLE CLASS and all of our basic civil rights. They have long battled for the return of the gilded age and they are ALMOST there.

He believes that the United States has taken advantage of the entire world, and America must be knocked down to size.

It's all written out in Obama's Book "Dreams of my Father".
Study up on old Barack, Sr.
Study up on Frank Marshal Davis

Barack, Jr., is following his Father's dreams.

But you're a think you know it all, Progressive fool, who wouldn't be open-minded enough to actually do any kind of critical thinking about what is actually going in the World.

Just protest where & when you Union bosses tell you to.
