    mmm.... Is this how it works?

    The Unions vote Democrat or Republican depending on how many benefits that either Political Party is giving away from the private sector.. ie.... taxpayers expense...

    With that kind of arrangement, as a taxpayer .. I feel I must be getting Screwed...

    I could be wrong but it sounds more like graft and corruption than collective bargaining to me, when relating to government...:eusa_eh:

    Yeah, but it doesn't matter how well funded a candidate is if there are an ass load of people out there ignorant enough to vote for them. Take Obama for an example, yes the unions backed him, but if it wasn't for all the people who bought into the hope and change and free stuff talk without first looking at his background and voting record, he would not have gotten elected. Without the electorate, the unions are pretty much a no show when it comes to getting someone elected.
    I know, I am in one of the biggest unions in the country and plan to drop my membership ASAP, because they no longer support the working man, they support special interests of there own. They make everything appear good at the local level, while they take your money at the national level and do what they want with it.

    Well, there seems to be a lot of people in Wisconsin that totally disagree with your positions. And they are exercising their rights. Tens of thousands of them, and more to come.,

    So the teachers are now union thugs. Nice turn of phrase. I saw a few hundred Teabaggers on the news, as opposed to many thousand teachers, firemen, and their supporters. But it was nice that they were being civil to each other.

    Those are the communists or confused within the union ranks. There might be what? 3000 teachers in Wisconsin, and all of a sudden 65,000 people show up to protest, don't be fooled, there is alot of community organizing going on, and none of it will benefit Wisconsin. Obama needs a riot, and this might kick it off, if this bill passes then other states will pass the same type of bill, creating chaos within the union, and Obama and the leftists need that. They need a reason to declare marshal law.
    Call me a nutcase, but I am usually not wrong on these things.
