    Read it all here: Why Big Labor couldn't match Glenn Beck's rally | Washington Examiner

    Now I skipped a bunch of paragraphs and tried to get to the salient parts, but you should really read it all. Especially the stats that prove big labor is shrinking.

    However, this is indicative of the ruling elites in general. Aging, way out of touch with America, and have no clue as to why America doesn't want to live by their dictates and edicts.

    This is why the One Nation Rally was a failure, despite how the left wants to lie about it. It was openly marxist, left garbage everywhere (because they really didn't care, they were paid to be there), and woefully failed to match Glen Beck's numbers.

    It was a show and a fraud. Trying to look like they can muster the same numbers as Beck and all they did was bolster Beck and the voters who listen to him.

    November is getting closer liberals!

    to basically cut and paste from earlier, the tea party is a movement based on hypocrisy. the stimulus failed ridiculously; obamacare is little better. democrats have failed. having said that, there will never be a decrease in deficit until defense spending, such as the war that they were mysteriously absent in protesting, is drastically decreased. tea baggers and their corporate-sponsored puppet masters dont solve the root reasons for the deficit, they just bitch and moan about spending. their "philosophy" is just that. it offers no actual solutions, other than to criticize past legislation and demand to reverse it. but that just brings us back to reagonomics, which have failed. not an original idea among them.

    when it comes down to it, they themselves arent willing to cut spending!

    give up your social security! give up medicare! cut back the military! bring our troops home, stop supporting tax cuts that increase the deficit dramatically... be a TRUE conservative. tea party=biggest crowd of dumb jerkoffs ever gathered. they have no logic, and are the ultimate proof of how readily people will rally around a bumpersticker banner.

    When you oppose something, logically you shouldn't keep accepting the tax cuts that it gives you, as well as refuse to give up the idea of a social security pension awaiting you in the future. cowards and idiots, all of them. theyre not true conservatives. they just make sarah palin and glenn beck richer.

    In other words you can't deny what I said about the One Nation Rally so you go on the attack.

    None of your screed even made sense. "Reaganomics has failed?" :lol::lol::lol:

    Yeah, let's compare Reagan's years to NOW. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    When you have evidence for any of that nonsense do let us know.

    I hear a link from "Think Progress" coming now!

    The Tea Baggers didn't exist until FoxNews told them to exist. They were a minor fringe group until Obama got elected and Fox decided they needed a cover group to push their agenda.

    Now, with 24/7 publicity of upcoming Tea Party rallies and the Fox gallery of right wing stars to fan the flames, they can get as big a turnout as they want

    Organized labor has been shrinking for a variety of reasons for decades.

    The Decline of Union Power

    Ironically, however, it is labor opposition that has contributed to middle class families seeing their annual incomes fall by more than $2,600 since the 90's. Stagnant incomes led to an increased demand for credit, with the household debt-to-income ratio growing dramatically from 2001-2007. The unsustainable spending sparked the housing bubble, and subsequent collapse, and ultimately helped to trigger the Great Recession.

    Press Releases - Press - U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee

    With management no longer willing to pay its employees a decent living and instead outsourcing or opting for two-fers (two employees with less salary in total and zero benefits), they're making out like bandits, all at the working stiff's expense.

    Who complains? Ask any knowledgeable man or woman on the street, especially one who is unemployed, and they don't blame labor unions, whether that person is a Republican or a Democrat. They blame greed, disguised as capitalism.

    Why is this topic posted in the "Reviews" section? Someone planning on making a movie about the Adventures of Glenn Beck?

    Before Obama got elected, you could fit the Tea Party in the back of my car. Once Obama was elected, all of a sudden spending became important for some reason. 24/7 coverage on Fox News can do that.
