    The best way to break the stranglehold the unions have on the economy is to outsource them. To remain competitive so we can further globalize our prosperous economy, we have to lower wages to global levels. So the union guy who gets 70 grand a year for turning screws in the car factory here should make no more than 20 grand. That's still four times what a guy doing the same thing in China makes. If the spouse makes about the same, that's 40 grand a year. That's plenty to live on if you do without luxuries. Then we'd have more of a chance to be competitive. Unfortunately, the greedy unions want more more more. I think the unemployment figures today verify my view. Our President, who was a successful businessman and understands these issues, needs to put through another major tax cut for the people who create jobs in our country. Second, our President has to abolish the unions so companies can cut labor costs down to global size. Third, the companies have to get rid of the health care insurance burden so people can buy their own insurance if they want it. Finally, our President has to abolish the environazi laws that prevent our companies from being competitive.

    It's not like management ever outsourced security? Come on, jerks!!!!!! You got better than that, don't you? Ever heard of Pinkerton? I've kicked more than one of their tired ol' union bustin' asses. Why worry about working people organizing for their own benefit while ignoring the powers that be that constantly organize to protect their own interests?

    well, to be fair... outsourcing picketing is pretty fucking lame. Maybe we can make all the homeless people rich by outsourcing all 08 protesting to them.
