    I often fine people often refer to both, one or the other at different times. But my mistake here.

    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.

    You do realize you linked a commentary and not a news report? If such a charge was from someone you disagreed with, about someone you wanted to agree with, would you give it the same weight?

    I have little faith in any raid started by "Federal authorities" of ex-staff (who may be disgruntled) regarding a Republican governor who is trying to balance a state budget and cut back on unions abusing the government (in a battleground state where unions donate heavily to Democrats).

    Gee, that wasn't too partisan

    I thought putting Federal authorities in quotes really made your argument more persuasive

I have found many retired union employees that aren't so union proud today because looking back they realize how foolish they were putting so much faith in someone else. Never look back and say you are sorry, randel, for anything that you did. Lack of initiative and drive are something that you will be sorry for in the future.
    Your Wrong.....union members public and private are the only working americans making a halfway decent wage....Police Fireman are Union they dont feel incapable of competing their jobs have no competition....im a retired union man and im VERY PROUD of my Union and my time in it.
    This crap rhetoric that comes from the far right...about unions...about social security about medicare about tax cuts create jobs about no regulations stimulate growth...I used to buy all that for decades, no more its a bunch of horsechit and thats all the greedsters have to try and use for excuses to grab everything for themselves..

    This country wasn't built on those principles supported today by unions and that cradle to grave crap is bankrupting us especially in the private union sector. Sorry but the truth is public sector workers are bankrupting this country and if that is what you want to support send your money directly to them. It really is easy spending someone else's money, isn't it? Problem is your money is being wasted on public union employees and will be paying them for decades to come.

    Yeah and the Teapot Dome scandal just involved Harding's aides too, but that didn't exactly keep his reputation in tact, did it? A man who surrounds himself with corrupt people either knows of their corruption and is also guilty, or is oblivious of what is going on around him and therefore unfit to lead. There are exceptions to these rules, but in a case where somebody's most trusted associates are brought along from the beginning and rising through the ranks, this kind of thing is unacceptable should it be proven they ignored their jobs in favor of acting in political interest.

    Don't forget, all these controversial issues surrounding Walker in the past were about him saying we can't afford to spend state money on this and we can't afford that. Meanwhile, he's paying six figure salaries to all his friends who sit around campaigning for him year round? That's shameless and disgusting.

    Cradle to grave coverage, wage increases regardless of performance, no concern for the taxpayers, unsustainable pension and healthcare benefits, jobs for life regardless of performance. Again, I am talking PUBLIC UNIONS. If management is dumb enough to allow union shops of the private sector then that is for their shareholders to handle.

    read the first sentence of the US Constitution. One of the goals of this nation was to build a more perfect UNION in our national interests. But when workers try to build a more perfect UNION for their economic interests- you act like its Karl Marx going at it with Leon Trotsky as both warm themselves in the glow of a fireplace filled with burning American flags.

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
    The very idea of a UNION - of joining and working together in common interest is as American as apple pie, motherhood and George Washington all rolled into one.
