Wealth terrorists? Hopefully that does not lead to the Whine Terrorists, or the Lemonade terrorists.

ALEC may be the single most dangerous threat to the individual freedoms of the American citizens ever conceived by the Republican Party,with Homeland Security running a very close second.There will be a week long convention during the August vacation recess in New Orleans,to wine and dine the members and introduce them to policies and legislation,which will be presented word for word to their respected legislative bodies when they return to work.This open,blatant Fascism at work in America,and it is accepted as business as usual by the Republican Party.All is not well here on many levels, be aware of what is happening to our government.All politicians are creating political turmoil in an effort to polarize the American citizens,so that they will not come together and drive the vermin into the sea.

There has to be a happy balance between labor unions and business in order to have growth and jobs. Unions must realize that when they get too powerful (high wages/benefits) the jobs move overseas and are lost forever. Unions are competing with all nations In today's global economy but most still refuse to make adjustments to their demands thus leading to the loss of jobs and higher unemployment.

Is the union leadership really taking care of their members by making unrealistic demands in today's market? I think not. If one thinks that strong unions are good for the state's economy just look at the financial crises in California caused in a large part by unions' huge fringe benefits.

America is finished. The grand experiment in self-determination has finally fizzled out just as the founding fathers thought it would - when citizens began voting themselves other peoples money. Americans traded freedom and opportunity for the false promise of a few crumbs. Government has no ability to provide for everyones want, hopes, and dreams, but that is what is now expected. Meanwhile, the productive are moving operations to more agreeable environs. As Washington punishes the productive, other nations are more welcome. The following decades will see most of America's multi-nationals moving their headquarters overseas. Good-bye America, it was nice while it lasted. Idi Amin looks like Thomas Jefferson when compared to the cash-for-clunkers currently in D.C.
