While their salaries may be lower than union workers, so is the cost of living in these states and I am sure these folks are making enough to live comfortably.
Yes.. getting paid less is the new Republican/Conservative rally cry. I have to wonder why do you people support this crap?

You have no problem with a CEO or an owner of a company making millions... nay billions a year sitting on his azz but you all get all cranky when the actual blue collar worker joins a Union and manages to make a decent wage.

What's up with you people?

Do you want to return to the days of slavery or something?

I think it's nice to be able to live in a country where I have the freedom to take what I have earned and leave it.
What do you propose?
Again, what is your alternative.
Yes... the illegal aliens do that all the time via remittances yet ironically people like you love to "complain" about them doing that yet on the other hand you yourself are considering running away from the USA with your Social Security check to another country.

So the moral of the story here is that you're no different than an illegal alien so maybe you finally need to practice what you preach...... and stop feeding off the USA and go move back to your beloved country of origin... Canada!!

People like here do not care about Americans or even our Armed Forces but will "pretend" to care about them when they can use them as fodder.
Just look at the Republican Party along with Mitt Romney.... they're all like peas in a pod when it comes to "pretending" to care about Americans or America in general.
And for the record... these are the same people who want to secede from the Union.
That alone speaks volumes to who these people are!!
How do you feel about seceeding from unions.

WRONG!!!!

Her random capitalization of words make no real sense. The only thing I can conclude from her comments is that when she posts in caps... she's suggesting that she's yelling or she's simply retarded and thinks that random capitalization of words is actually proper grammar.

I really don't know. Maybe she does it to simply annoy people. Regardless.... by her doing so encourages me to make fun if it.

I can see that all your life you've had to crawl on your knees from your little cubicle to the masters office and brown nose him all day just so you can come back to a shitty job the next day.
Sucks to be you.
As for working for an employer.... it actually is the responsibility of the employer to provide all necessary material for an employee to "get the job done".
For example... the US Military provides all weapons to their soldiers prior to them entering combat.
So for the record... I'm sorry you've lived the life of a SCAB all your life.
Again.... It sucks to be you.
It is the responsibility of the employer to provide the job.

If a person doesn't want to work under a Union and thereby get paid a decent wage... they can go find another non-Union job and get paid a shit wage.

Historically there is a correlation between the rise in Unions and the raise in the earning power of Americans. And with the recent drop in Unions there has been a drop in the earning power of Americans.

Now I have to wonder why you would prefer to be a SCAB rather than a Union member?

Yes and to provide all tools, materials and safety equipment to get that job done. Look... I often have to remove EMD SD70 power assemblies out of locomotives. If I need tools, materials and safety equipment to get that job done... I'm under no obligation to go get it with my own money.... that's the responsibility of my employer or else I cannot do the job safely which is a catch 22 as we're not supposed to perform a job unsafe. So I don't perform the job.

I'm in a Union... I can do that.

If I was not in a Union... the cheap azz employer would probably try to fire me for insubordination.

Children of diplomats have been receiving US citizenship long before Obama was even a politician so don't you come off as trying to suggest that this crap suddenly started yesterday.
And the moral of the story here was that Ralff said that diplomats cannot get US Citizenship and I only demonstrated that they can... have done so in the past and will likely continue far into the future.
I still am not convinced. If you will provide me with an official US Gov link stating that is now the case I most likely would believe it but as it stands you have only provided me with the opinions of one with a dog in this fight. I want to know the official stance so I can see when, how and why it is not following the stated and long held purpose of the amendment.

To date, I haven't found anything "official" on a change. All I ask is that you show me.
