    The National Average wage in America in 2009 was $40,711.61. How close were you to that "average" figure? (1)

    The average Union Wage in 2009 was $47,216.00 (908. x 52 weeks). How close were you that figure? (2)

    The Top 500 CEOs averaged a $11.4 million wage in 2009. How close were you to that figure? (3)


    Knowing these figures for 2009, I must ask the right why they are attacking Union members who only make $6,505. a year ($3.13 hr. more) more than unskilled workers, and $10.992,784. less than CEOs?

    Maybe they can explain this flaw in logic that even a common sense con might understand, in capitalist terms that we would all enjoy to hear. Cons claim capitalism is about making profits whenever they defend a CEO, but not when they attack a Union member. Why is that? And I would expect most of those posting here make over the average of a common worker and union member, but I am fairly sure none are making more than a CEO. Yet they attack the Union member when they make more average wages a year than they do.

    So tell us all about it cons. How do you explain this illogical position you hold? Or support your imbeciles in congress who want to tear down the capitalist system, for the average American worker. The only object being is to pay American workers less, yet shield the CEOs who make more.

    Excellent thread.

    From my observation, they have arrived to their logic from the constant demonization of The Union Worker simultaneously tempored with the constant glorification of the Rich, aka the job givers...aka The CEO.

    Are you devinding people in to class and thus, deviding people in to special interest groups? As if we should pay attention to any group over another? And what about Unions? Their pay DOES NOT INCLUDE THEIR BENEFITS. And who pays for thoes lavish pensions, the excellent health coverage, and all the other perks in public sector unions? WE DO! Who bailed out the failed Unions of Detroit as their business was destroied because their non union competetors are destroying them? WE DID! Thus your damn right we get to critisize them! Chris Christie is Awesome!

    A question is the title.

    It appears the OP can't count. I blame the public schools system.

    Something is certainly flawed in their thinking Marc, and maybe if they can talk in their common sense manner we can figure it out. An average of $3.13 an hour is what they are resisting. LOL!:eusa_angel:

    Dividing into groups is what the name of the "Union" game is to cons, and the point of this thread. Too complicated for you? The common Average worker or CEO DOES NOT INCLUDE THEIR BENEFITS either, so what is your point? We are talking wages here, not what time the sun came up this morning. Get on task dude, stop trying to make this thread a complex case. It is simple arithmetic of ABOUT AMERICAN WAGES>GOT IT???

    I try to dumb it down to the common sense level so cons won't get lost, and they still need a road map.:lol:

    I am fairly certain tunafish never made it to college. If she did she spent all day long in a smelly locker.

    Don't expect an answer; you may get attacked personally and called all sorts of names, in particual pejoratives (Socialist! Communist?), by those who actually read your post and considered it. Most however will suffer congnitive dissonance and simply hate you for making them uncomfortable.

    Like most of your 'certainties', you would be wrong. Again. I guess you're used to that.

    SNIFF Obviously then, you made it through without any math classes. The OP is accurate, and you are playing yourself here as a fool, imbecile.
