    President Reagan discusses the tragic events that have occurred in Poland at the hands of the Polish government, which he suspects is influenced by the Soviet Union. He warns the Polish government of severe consequences if they should continue to disregard the human rights of its citizens.

    Yes everyone should have the right to choose to join a union. Not sure what the point is.

    Has anyone said people don't have a right to join a union if they chose to?

    I agree everyone should have the right to join a union - do you know, Walmart's CEO -takes- 717 times more then the average non-union worker who -makes- on average $8.81/hr? (I wonder who negotiated that contract?)


    Join the union or-----or in MI you can now 'take' all the services of union representation without 'make-ing' the payment for union services -- It's like in MI, you think you can now eat lunch but-----but for some weird reason you and other free riders expect your fellow lunch counter sitters to pick up their own tab and-----and YOUR tab too, WTF? -takers-pewsh!-


    Republicans are a strange breed, they support free riders whether it be receiving union benefits for free, or receiving healthcare without paying for their fair share of the cost, or red states getting back more federal dollars than they put in, and so on, and so on, and so... while simultaneously whining about... about damn near everything.

    Are you lying or are you uninformed?

    The people of Michigan have always had the right NOT to be forced to join a union.

    What percentage of workers innMichigan are, in fact, union members? Was this number 100% before their butthurt GOP legislators fucked them?

    I suppose what might be a point is both Reagan and later Heston, those two liberal scamps, were both presidents of the Screen Actors Guild. Try to get a job in a film as an actor without a SAG card.

    Personally, I would never join a union. But what you have in MI right now is government interference with business. So I guess we have established that this is acceptable. I'm glad that argument is over.

    Reagan was an actor.

    He didn't have his own thoughts; he just read what his handlers put in front of him and made it sound convincing.

    There should be a right to join a union. And a right not to join a union and if you don't join a union, you shouldn't have to pay union dues.
