I agree. Beating people you disagree with is the best way to get the point across that you won't make a good employee. The arrest records should keep them out of the job pool long enough for more qualified people to join in.

Oh, yeah, Crowder was the Virtuous Man of the Year earlier this fall for posting about his wedding where he and his wife both kept their virginity until married. He then went on to pretty much troll all people who engaged in premarital sex as immoral sluts, and made it seem like his was the Best Wedding Sex Ever. Even reading the article made everyone I know want to throttle him.

Let's say this bottle of Massengil spring scent represents the normal amount of douchiness in an individual. Taking a sample after strolling through his online articles, Tweets and YouTube videos, it would be a bottle 32 feet high weighing approximately 5 tons.

jso2897: mwfark: Here's a truth for the union hacks: Right to Work laws give workers a choice between whether or not one joins a union. Many times the absence of such laws means workers are forced into unions and required to pay dues against their will, eliminating their choice. Since choice = freedom, then Right to Work laws are more American than forced coercion. No wonder why unions get the "commie" label......

Gotta love these people who call theselves "conservatives" these days - they claim to oppose government meddling in the private sector - until it's a matter of having the governemnt arbitrarily abrogate a contract between two private parties to obtain a result they deem desirable.
So much for "moral consistency" on the part of "conservatives".


First, I'm not a conservative... I'm libertarian. Secondly, while there may exist a contract between a union and an employer, an individual employee who wishes not to be roped into a union should not be forced to do so, simply because we live in friggin' free country. I realize this notion is difficult for some people to understand, but even if you think that union membership is in the "best interest" for someone, that is not a determination for you or the union to make for that person. Believe it or not, some people still value freedom and pride themselves on individuality and independent thought and do not ascribe to your herd mentality. In fact, I'll go so far as to say:
I support VOLUNTARY participation in unions but do not support COMPULSORY participation. Vive la liberté!

Void_Beavis: Joe Blowme: Between 1977-08, employment grew 100% in right-to-work states vs. the national average of 71% and 56.5% in non-right-to-work states. That's according to a January study that Ohio University economics professor Richard Vedder did for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

In this period, real per capita income in the right-to-work states grew 62.3% vs. the national average of 54.7% and 52.8% for non-right-to-work states.

the bottom 14 states for personal income growth (between 1999 and 2009) are all non-right-to- work states

Link

Income growth is not the same as income level. If I make $0, then I make $.01, that's a growth of 100%.

Working at Walmart is hardly a "liveable" income. However when we gut social services and extend benifits to corporations that ship jobs elsewhere, people have little choice but to work at Walmart.


You're not a mathematician, are you...

/percentages, how do they work??

Joe Blowme: s1ugg0: ****NEWSFLASH****

People get upset when you attack their livelihood and how they provide for their families. More at 11!

By giving them more choices? How is that? All dues are is kick back for having a job, like a protection racket or something. Like a job tax, how quaint.

LordJiro: david_gaithersburg: LordJiro: david_gaithersburg: Freedom and democracy, the two things so called progressives fear the most.

People who actually work for a living: One of many things Republicans can't stand.
.
.
blah, blah, blah The Republicans are the one's passing laws allowing people to work, the unions are fighting to prevent people from working at workplaces that have a union unles they pay shake down money. I have many friends with small companies that have been kicked off of jobs because their 3-4 man company wasn't paying dues to union lawyers.

Fark you buddy.

FTFY. You're free to work a non-union job. But if your workplace has a union and you aren't a part of it, you're a parasite. Unless, of course, you sign a waiver preventing yourself from receiving the wages and benefits a union negotiates for.


No Waiver needed. I've worked all my life in non union jobs. I've never been privy to what the other workers around me make. That's between them and the employer. The point being - this idea that you will get paid the union rates when you are non-union, IS THE BIGGEST RED HERRING BULLSHIAT in the whole debate. If they can differentiate between me and the next guy, they can differentiate between the union and the rest of us. Seen it happen. Memo's about benefits, etc would come out and all were clearly labeled that they only applied to those not represented by contracts.

The idea that everyone in the same shop, or at the same level is automatically gonna get the union rates is monkey-brained imagination. There is no guarantee of that, whatsoever. What I get paid is between me and the company, and not determined by what others, or another group negotiates. Happens all the time.

This is the story that unions tell members in order to hold power over them. I support union's legitimate rights, the right to assemble, and compare notes on their conditions, and to collectively bargain. This is not one of those rights.

Unions represent workers like politicians represent people. And the centralizing of power has the same corrupting effect on either.

Elandriel: We are seeing the beginning of the modern day labor rights movement, I think.


Yeah.... the a group of the highest paid blue collar workers on the planet is just a kettle about to boil over.

Makes me wonder what is really going on that has them so violent... I always come back to "the mob doesn't want their revenue stream drying up." Rational people don't resort to assault because of some esoteric discussion about labor rights that would not affect them one way or another, and they are already making $30/hour for on a menial job, and there is a payment for their $50k Harley Davidson due next week.

Then again, my wife is a collections officer at a bank and they are constantly foreclosing on people in the "boiler maker" union because they can't like on $80k a year in their welding job, because they keep writing checks at the local internet gambling cafe.... so maybe these people aren't rational. By all means, give them what they want before they kill us all.

HotWingConspiracy: Thunderpipes: HotWingConspiracy: Thunderpipes: Oh, 40% of MI union members polled said they would leave the union if they could?

They can at any time. Also, cite a source for that.

ya, they can leave, but they still have to pay dues,.

No, they can quit whenever they like.

once again, morons, would you be for unions if they forced employees to fund Republicans?

Nobody is forced to fund Democrats. You don't get to torture the word "forced" to make your hack point.

CA alone is over 300 billion underfunded in their pension plans, because of unions. Nationwide that number dwarfs the deficit. How is that working for you? You want free stuff,

Free? They negotiated a contract and performed their end of the bargain. Again, your jealousy shines through.


Jealous, of what? 20 years of wasted union dues and an unfunded pension?

By the way, one of the reasons Hostess failed?

Drivers were not allowed by the union to deliver bread products, and snack cakes in the same truck. Had to be two separate trucks. Perfect example of union asshattery.

Bottom line, you guys want free, taxpayer funded money to campaign, and you don't care about quality of work, efficiency, or the education of our children. You are against choice, want people forced to join your cause. That is as unamerican as you can get. MI voters decided this matter already, but you won't let it go, you bus in criminals from all over to whine and biatch.

There's really no difference. Well, except that unions are more prone to violence than the KKK.

This is what, the 10th time someone has come up with this retarded bs in the same thread???? THIS IS NOT HOW UNIONS WORK YOU DUMB SHIAT. Not now, not ever. You don't want to join a union? Don't get a job at a union company you ignorant dolt. Noone is forcing you to get a job at a union company. Oh, yeah, that's right, the union companies have better wages and benefits for some reason, and you want to leech off of that without having a part in negotiating. Fark off.

More likely to be true then, but until I see people vouching that this guy is a member of that union, I still refuse to completely believe it. I have no trouble believing that Fox would stage that to discredit the protesters.
