    LOL!
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched moonbeams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain...

    Wisconsin's going to become an Islamic Caliphate after this. Just you watch. Glenn Beck said this would happen.

    When you look at the black race, black people are very gifted in what we call worship and celebration. A lot of us like to dance, and if you go to black churches, you see people jumping up and down, because they really get into it. White people were blessed with the gift of structure and organization. You guys do a good job of building businesses and things of that nature and you know how to tap into money pretty much better than a lot of people do around the world. Hispanics are gifted in family structure. You can see a Hispanic person and they can put 20 or 30 people in one home. They were gifted in the family structure. When you look at the Asians, the Asian is very gifted in creation, creativity and inventions. If you go to Japan or any Asian country, they can turn a television into a watch. They're very creative. And you look at the Indians, they have been very gifted in the spirituality.

    I heard the dems have fled the state once they sent the cops to force them to return and vote. Interesting theater going on there. This was apparently similar to when the dems fled to Oklahoma from Texas in 2003 during redistricting.

    Unions are bullshit. They collectively destroyed Cleveland, Detroit and the Airline industry.

    There's a long rich history of this behavior. Abe Lincoln once jumped out a window to avoid a Illinois house vote.

    a group of Democratic senators have blocked the bill by refusing to attend a midday vote and leaving the Capitol. The sergeant at arms was looking for them.

    The drive being displayed should be enough proof for the lot of them to see that they don't need anyone to speak on their behalf.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Unions really are bullshit. Especially on weekends, and child labor laws. Weekends and not enough child labor... no wonder we are falling behind China.

    Everybody knows it was the trade commission that destroyed the production belt by gerrymandering export profits and driving notional values to the point where equity swaps were no longer viable to the majority class. It's called margin bullying, guys. This is why the EU controls all the hedge funds.

    If anyone else wants to display their ignorance of history and total misunderstanding of the nature of capitalism and business, step right up.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of where unions in the past 10 years have done anything positive to help their respective members grievances?

    My union got me a full-time job (from a temporary job) 12 years ago, and I still have the same job.

    edit: ok, that was indeed 12 years ago, not 10 or less. You got me.

    unions don't do harm simply by virtue of their existence. They can be useful if they genuinely represent the best interest of the greatest number of people (which isn't necessarily always true). This generally entails making more compromises with regard to job security.



    unions are great, however, if your life's aspiration is to be a lazy shit.

    Bingo. Unions these days are a scam, their only real goal seems to be self-preservation. Why are grad students members of UAW? Do they share a common sturggle with American auto workers (are cars even made in the US anymore?), or did the union merely expand and absorb a new group to fill their coffers after most of the auto manufacturing jobs went overseas in the 80s and 90s?

    I like the part where an elected official of a representative republic is trying to end the peoples' right to collective bargaining.
