Now theres gratitude for you, and such an American too, so tolerant, and a great example as well.
Im glad hes from the tolerant side or this may look nasty.

It brings more credence to the statement, "He's not my Vice President."

Echo jsc's point and want to add, "Biden is a pathetic public leech."

I love these Union guys !!!

Go Jimmy Hoffa !!!

"In their vision, you have no place at all. With our vision, you are the place!" said Biden. "We stand with you, organized labor, because with you we will restore the American dream."

I love unions too, when needed or useful, for various reasons.
Private sector unions are mostly OK, tho many a time, they overstep their usefulness
Public unions?
Wheres the need?
If the government didnt pay their employees enough, those jobs wouldnt be filled, and then the politicians would catch hell
So, again, no need, just pay them fairly.

Some people, alot actually, tho theyre in unions, dont want a democrat in office many times, but they have no choice as to where a portion of their union dues go, which is hugely disproportionate to the dems, and where its been tried to have control over your personal contributions to a given candidate, thru union dues, its been fought by, you guessed it, the democrats.
This is seperatist in nature, and shouldnt be lawful in my mind.
The VP only showed the stranglehold he and the dems have and want from the unions

Fair enough ... the Dems are seen as basically the same as the Labor Party here in Australia I guess.

the Republicans are perhaps very similar to the Liberal party here too.

July 3, 2011 3:19:52 AM

Pretty much
What I really dont like is how these "sides" have aligned, as if they cant cross ideas at any given time
Going in the "this party does this, while this party does that" direction only increases greed, seperation and being stuck with the proverbial "they were the least of all evils, thats why I voted for them" scenario

I think I am a pretty right wing Labor man ... I do believe the working classes reserve the right to negotiate collectively with their employer.

I do agree Unions should be transparent in the finances and dealings ... since it it the people's money.

Well, Ive mentioned earlier about my grandfather, back when guns and clubs were needed for fairness
Whats funny now tho is, its so tempered down, and the unions gain so much, while its still the workers who do all the unions lifting.
In other words, the unions are doing to the workers much like the employer would possibly do, if not for the unions.
BIG BIDNESS unions are

Let's truly make a distinction between public and private unions. Private unions ok? Yes but they do overstep, UAW anyone? Public unions are a totally different matter. They get salary and benefits from private citizens taxed wages. No taxes, no wages for the public employee.

When public employees are collectively bargaining, they are bargaining against their neighbors. The very people that pay for their salary and benefits, their friends, their families. It is parasitic. It is immoral and wrong.

What happened in Wisconsin was sickening. These public employees were asked to only contribute a small percentage of their own salary into their own pensions and healthcare premium. You know, like the very people paying their salaries have to do in their own life?

And look what happened? The budget is now balanced in Wisconsin and no one lost their job.

As I said, sickening parasites.

I don't agree ... and this sort of thing wouldn't happen here either.

1. Our economy isn't completely stuffed like yours.

2. We don't turn on each other like rabid dogs.

3. See 1.

But its OK to tax the rich in a grossly unbalanced way, since turning on the rich isnt so bad, but not the other classes?

I see your key to economic recovery is to repress the poor further ... to lower your costs of production ... the rich get richer and the poor get kids?

Here is an analogy by Bill Maher:

"Take the American capitalist system and liken it to a party. You have 100 people and order 100 pizzas. Instead of everyone getting what they want, there is an unbalanced nature. One person Gets 80 pizzas while the rest get the other 20.

Liken that to us. the top 1% has the majority of the cash while the rest of us have the least of all.

You may ask, ' Why can't they give at least one more slice?'
I don't know...oh, wait I do:

THAT'S SOCIALISM.!"

^^ What you fail to mention is the person that got the 80 pizzas took out a risky bank loan, designed and built the factory, and hired all the workers to make those pizzas.

THAT'S CAPITALISM! You take the risk, you get the reward.

I am thinking about just ditching work tomorrow and having a sleep in and then looking for a new solar controller for my spa ...

Waiting for the water to heat up is just uncivilised ... I want hot water now !!

I'll leave you unwashed to decide how the world should run ... while I enjoy it.

May I remind you that the analogy was that EVERYONE too out risks and one got lucky, but instead of employing one other, they keep their pizza, not because the deserve it, but because they feel entitled not to feed their peers.

He was worthy enough for the bank to give him a risky loan. He hired the construction engineers, and the cement layers to build the factory that makes the pizzas. Then after the factory was built, (and the people who built it were paid), he hired people to work in the factory. And they were paid.

And therefore pizzas rained down on everyone from above at affordable prices.
