GM retirees facing cuts in pensions

Totally agree. The days of unions are over, for now. I think unions need to be restructered and get back to what they were originally intended for. I think a little to much greed not only with the union wworkers, but the execs also, is what did GM in  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #225)

why immigrant workers will fill the streets this may day

Amen to that. I look at it like this. If I were going to live in a foreign country, like say France. I should learn to speak at least some french. Can you imagine if all the Americans living in France protested the French people and told them that they had to make it easier for the english speaking people. If I want to live, work or go to school in their country, then I should be the one to adapt, not them.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #109)

Out-of-wedlock births hit record high

And kids are being taught what in school? Sex Ed? Have you ever watched some of these court shows on tv where the girl, who's 17, has 3 kids by different fathers, and is now sueing a guy so that he has to take a DNA test, because she is sure he has to be the daddy to one of her kids. It comes out that she has slept with 10 different guys, and anyone of them could be the father. You know guys and girls, there is a cure for pregnancies. There's the pill, rubbers etc. Din't school teach you anything because obviously momma didn't.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #53)

I totally agree. The race card is over used. They need to come up with something that actually makes some sense, like facts.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #741)

GM retirees facing cuts in pensions

I do feel sorry for some of those retirees. Some of them that started with GM 40 yrs ago probably never dreamed that things would end up like this. They were working people that just wanted to put food on the table and have a home of their own. Then came some greedy people. The executives and some blue collar workers that thought they would get a huge piece of the pie. The execs kept getting more and more and the unions wanted to get more and more. Pretty soon their nice little set-up bottomed out. Greed from the execs and greed from the union is what ruined GM. If I had worked for GM, I would also have been one of those greedy union workers. It's just the way things are. Someone wants to keep throwing more $$ and better benefits at me, you had better believe I would take it. I don't think that there are too many people out there that would not do the same.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #212)

Why do illegals contunue to think they have rights? Wasn't it the illegals a couple of years ago that tried to change OUR National Anthem? That did not sit well, nor will their little march. Enter the US legally and then stand in line like everyone else has to, to apply for a job. Maybe then you can start paying for your own medical insurance, and not the American taxpayers.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #92)

Hear, hear! It was never an issue about race. It was however, an issue that a mother killed her child and then acted like her daughter never exsisted. Yes, there was a card played. But it wasn't the "race" card. It was the "pity me" card played by Casey, that got her no where except jail where she ought to be. It's getting really old when people want to play the race card that does not have any merit.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #735)

Get real. I am sick to death of people bringing up the race issue! I'm surprised you didn't bring up the fact that Casey's dad is a retired cop and that's why it took them so long to charge her. I'm tired that blacks and Mexicans think that only whites are racist. I have seen and heard more racist remarks coming from a black person that I do whites. Grow up and get real!  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #733)

Can't stand Oprah. But the Anthony family is totally screwed up. The family has known all along that Casey murdered her daughter. They have basically said in taped interviews with the police in the beginning of this case. The grandparents spout how much they love and miss little Caylee, but they obviously love their murdering daughter a whole lot more. Can't stand the brother either. The whole family is nuttier than a fruit cake. I'm surprised though that Casey has lasted this long in jail. I wonder who she's doing the "bump "n grind" with? Baez, her attorney? Or maybe Stella 2 cells don?  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #727)
