A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
aren't you the guy who prefers what MISTER BOBB is doing in detroit?
all that voiding of contracts and tearing up of collective bargaining, the pink slipping of entire districts, the auctioning off of public schools to private operators...
all made possible by RICK SNYDER'S martial law?

After reading and catching up in this thread I have now abandoned all meager hope that the two sides will be capable of reaching a working compromise.
No is really interested in compromise, but instead are interested in being right. Neither side is completely right and neither side is completely wrong, but I doubt that will be factored in.
Some are so radical that they propose ideals that would dump the elderly and infirm on the streets.
Some are so radical that they think that full blown socialism will fix things.
Overall it appears that things like education have less priority than military spending. This is the doorway to doom as a nation.
For a long term solution everybody will have to put some chips on the table. If only one side ends up with all the chips on the table we can uniformly expect an economic collapse. If neither side puts any chips on the table we can uniformly expect an economic collapse.
I see one side blame the other for loss of our freedoms, but when I look at facts and voting records I see equal guilt from both parties.

Now, no insult taken, however, let me as what makes you think I don't value my labor? Truck drivers are among the most independent group of employee blocks in the nation. We are constantly struggling to find better wages, and working conditions, or even striking out on our own. As evidenced by the number of truckers that are constantly changing whom they drive for.
I think it is a stretch for you to assume that someone doesn't value their own labor solely on such limited information of me as a person. do you think I am incapable of negotiating my own wage? Or that I need some liberal to do it for me?
Absolutely, and the inverse is also the truth. Which is why I'd rather the control of that be left to those who know the business, and its requirements to succeed.The business owner would be absolutely no where without the work you and your fellow works put in. No business can exist without the workers that keep it running.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
