Labor's plan to fight back

Dec 12, 2012 Full story: Politico 394

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.

Unions and their leaders think they're Almighty God, but you know what they are? They're cheap, lousy, dirty, stinkin' mugs! And I'm glad what I done to 'em, ya here that? I'm glad what I done!

The communist manifesto predicted that Obama would abandon the unions after he didn't need them anymore. Obama will talk a god game but do absolutely nothing for the unions. Hello communism. Goodbye America.

Unions are against other peoples rights including the right to join or not join a union.

Unions are for weak people who can stand on their own, and make their own way in the employment market. If unions were so great, there wouldn't be any need for "union shops" that FORCE people to join and pay dues, whether they agree with the union's agenda or not.

We need to start taxing PAC groups and lobbyists. Enough of those THUGS! That's where our country needs to get some revenue! Also, need an Arnold Shwarzenegger moment for our Governor here in MI. We sure do! How about that Mayor from Lansing, or Geoffrey Fieger, David Bonior? Also, watched some news channels last night, and the Unions voted for a Republican to head one of their Unions. They are part of the problem themselves. They got so "comfy", they voted for a Republican to head their UNION????? Nothing like being infiltrated from within. That's a pretty darn stupid move from the unions themselves.

you don't think the unions are going to let a little thing like THE LAW get in the way of them getting what they want, do you?

But we have jobs!!!!!

Union members are too stupid to realize that a job with pay is better than NO JOB at all!!!

Good job Michigan! Now to get rid of the teacher unions so we can start getting education back on track.

24 Right To Work states later, and the Dems are still scratching their heads and sitting on their laurels. The Dems need to be ashamed. They haven't even made an effort to get innovative or radical against Republicans. Obama should learn to do some multi-tasking there in the White House. Obama needs one group in one corner dealing with the voting laws, another group fighting RTW, another for wms rights, another for wherever the GOP get their money and support. When Clinton was President, he didn't waste his clout, he expanded the Democrat party. Obama is wasting his clout.

Every American worker started out as the "Right To Work" employee. That's why Unions were created. Those "Independent" workers didn't like the treatment they received from the wealthy robber barons in the 1890's. Once these idiot workers realize how easily they can be "erradicated", if they don't appease their CEO's wishes, things will go back to the status quo. People will revolt.

You are one of the worst POS on the boards.
You must be an ideal Obama supporter.
Stupid, rude and a total lack of value.

The most powerful man in the world could have helped the unions and he didn't. What's the stupids that voted for him make of that? The stupids are embarrassing themselves.
