    I remember the day when just saying "communism" would get some attention. I'm not sure it means anything to anyone these days. I guess I'm just old ?

    Apparently, empowering the workers so they don't have a union controlling their life hurts workers right someonehow. Who knew?

    Im sure the communists will talk about things that have no basis in reality and how they need to use violence to obtain control to impliment these inherently flawed ideas.

    Let's see what the revolutionary coalition between the unions and the communist party can do. I'm all for an honest up-front effort by communists and the Obama administration to change the political fabric of the United States. It would clear the air and give voters a chance to chose between the Constitution and the (sad to say) democrat party.

    I think the revolutionaries have been pushed to the wings. Communism in the West largely works through government nowadays. To an extent, many self-proclaimed Communists (like many self-proclaimed Liberals) are really more like democratic socialists than anything else

    That said, they'll surely denounce the banks and the control of the federal government by monied parties and advocate (t least in their rhetoric, if less so in practice) a more decentralized system

    Nothing to see here, folks. Just another con circle jerk.

    The OP is a conservative?

    Or you simply have nothing intelligent to say?

    I'm betting on the latter

    i don't know how much control unions have over the workers but can't the same thing be said about big business, religion, government?

    don't all of these things exercise control over workers lives?

    and at least unions work to ensure the workers of higher salaries, over time pay, holiday pay, vacations, sick leave, medical and dental benefits...

    i have no doubt that were unions to dissolve completely many of the benefits that so many Americans enjoy (et tu?) would disappear

    why should big business be forced to pay for medical benefits?
    or dental?
    or vacations?

    without organized unions to fight for these things they could disappear
