    Why would leaving DP be the honorable thing for him to do?

    So, you're to indict all hard working Americans in unions by the action of a few. Should we judge all conservatives are by the actions of a few lets see - Jack Abamoff or Scott Roeder? You should be ashamed of yourself, but probably aren't.

    lets face it pete, since i am a member of the UAW, a UNION, and believe i should have the right to negotiate for better wages, benefits, and that i DARE THINK i should be able to this, and that i DARE THINK that my labor is valuable and that i have a duty to myself to get the most value out of my labor, i'm obviously a scumbag, and i'm obviously a threat to this country, and if left alone, i will drag this country down.

    I always believed that as well and did negotiate better wages due to my performance not my longevity. Found that I didn't need a union representing me and apparently about 88% of the country feels the same way today as that is the percentage of union employees in the labor force. From what I can see from your posts there is no question that union employees need someone else to protect them as they are incapable of doing it themselves. Love the union thugs out there though especially ones like Hoffa and of course the Long shoremen in the state of Washington. UAW, SEIU, Longshoremen, OCAW, etc all have thugs that use force when they don't get their way. Thugs are rampant in the union roles especially the UAW. If you aren't one, great, not sure you are in the majority, JMO.

    Re: Probe surrounding Wis. governor apparently growing

    a statement from J-mac


    While, thugs that loiter outside polling places with clubs, and intimidate voters, and are convicted of such, cases just dropped.
    my response and question to him

    Can you explain how one can be convicted of voter intimidation while the case is dropped?


    his response to my question

    Ask Holder.

    j-mac
    Now either your answer makes no sense in any way, shape or form, or you seem to hve forgotten the very words you typed in your first statement with the contradictory accusation that people did these terrible things and were convicted and the charges dropped. Holder did not make this claim - YOU did.

    I ask you again, how can one be convicted of something if the charges have been dropped? Those are two opposite actions.

    Can you explain this for us please?

    yep, con, we are all just thugs obviously we are un-American for belonging to a union for daring to want a better life , for wanting to live the American dream, for having the belief that our labor is valuable never mind the fact that we have families, much like you, i'm sure, never mind that we pay taxes, much like you i'm sure, that we give to charity, again, as you have stated several times, much like you...how much easier life would be in this country if the labor force just all bent over and took it... just want you to know, i do find your uneducated, anti-union rants amusing. UAW AND PROUD OF IT.

    Re: Probe surrounding Wis. governor apparently growing

    I thought of folks like Conservative yesterday. As part of my job with the Legislature in Michigan, I attended a presentation by Dr. Gordon Lafer of the University of Oregon Economics Department on right to work legislation and laws. He presented us with a very well researched booklet filled with statistics and facts on the subject which completely trashed, smashed, destroyed and flushed any possible argument for an economic case for right to work. When he was finished he took questions and one person asked the key question:

    Q: If the facts are so obvious and clear, why do the people pushing right to work continue to push it?
    The answer from Dr. Lafer was in two parts
    1) they simply hate unions as part of their ideology and political bent
    2) we live in a time when facts and statistics mean precious little compared to beliefs

    I wanted to bottle him up and take him right here since I have been saying much the same thing for a long time now.

    You have to be a thug as you're a worker. Only wealthy owners and upper managment types are not thugs.

    Anyway, Michigan sure tore up that ND defense when it had to last week.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
