    At least filibustering is within the rules, and part of the job description. Can't filibuster from the hotel room in another state. They were cowards for not participating in the process of republican democracy! The system, as faulty as it may seem at times, works all the same! Voting no by virtue of sitting in a hotel room in another state could have been just the same as sitting in their congress seats. It's still going to be a no vote. All they did was delay the inevitable. Some people think they were making a "stand".. A stand for what? Oh I know, their constituents.. But wait.. Isn't that what they do when they, ya know.. Vote?

    It still won't hold up, not in Federal Court, which struck down the law limiting the hotel workers union in Chicago.

    Depends. Except for one time, I have always voted Republican or Libertarian, and have always strongly supported unions, even though I personally don't want to be in one.

    When was it in your life that you really started to apply yourself? Was it when you were still living with your parents, or was it when you left, and ventured off on your own? Unions are vehicles of stagnation, think of entrophy. Unions bargain based on the lowest common denominator. They barter for mediocrity, and settle on function. The idea of the union is antithetical to individualism, an idea that we are the people, but we are individual people. There is strength in the unionized worker, that is for sure, but that strength comes at a price. That price is production! It's always about production, and performance. Unions avoid bargaining based on production and performance.

    It IS interesting. Here is a link on the Federal Court ruling in Illinois, which will have an effect on efforts to bust union activities in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and other states. If the Wisconsin ruling goes to Federal Court, or if Walker passes his law again, which will also end up in Federal court, this ruling will be cited. Of course, this has not been tested at the Supreme Court level yet, and I predict that the case will go that far.

    Very Republican? You forget that it was a Republican judge, appointed by Tommy Thompson, who made that ruling.
