    corporations = one share one vote
    unions = one man one vote

    And it's the unions that are "anti-American". So much hate for democracy you have.

    You are asking questions. That is very anti-American of you.

    Probably just picking it up from his GOP leaders who are constantly using that phrase when they don't get their way.

    Representative Peter King:

    “They have no sense of purpose other than a basically anti-American tone and anti-capitalist. It’s a ragtag mob basically.”

    To be fair some of them are.

    But the thing is there's nothing wrong with that. It's a free country, people are allowed to express their political opinions, even if they are misguided.

    I'm a former communist, don't support that kind of thinking anymore but there's no reason why others shouldn't be allowed to.

Not the 35.8 k a plate Chicago fundraiser this year (which bombed-and for the record...I knew about the 28.5k a plate fundraiser in 08...who n]knew that the meal ticket price had gone up 10k in only 3 years?)?

    There are a lot of things that don't see as anti-American. Why is it you can't see it when it is clear?

    For example Obama was raised by Communists from his Mother father, stepfather, grand parents and he was surrounded by them in college,, then he spent 20 years listening to Rev. Wright who is all about Black Liberation Theology which is based on Marxism. Should I not see all that as a warning sign that he's is questionable.

    Even his wife has caused me to question her patriotism, when she said she has never been proud of our Nation. What the HELL does she not see that if she were still in Africa she might be fighting over scraps of food out some trash heap. Her she has the ability to go as far as she wants if she works for it.

    I have solid reasons for what I see and feel about Anti-Americanism, in some people but never all.

    You stretch your point like all Liberals tend to do.

    See, back then this made perfect sense.

    Cuz you could just go over there and get/build your own stuff.

    Now there's no there there to go over to that doesn't already have a neighbor on it. Or an "owner" who demands payment for Gods bounty someone's ancestor simply claimed as their own some time in the past.

    Seems to me the god who told everyone to go forth and multiply didn't think that through, knowin exactly how much dirt there actually was and all.

    No offense, just seems like a conflict to me.

    Well you don't have to be Anti-American to not be proud of America sometimes.

    I'm a very patriotic South African and Canadian, but I'm not proud of everything my country does...

    I have solid reasons for what I see and feel about Anti-Americanism, in some people but never all.
    Just alllllll things liberal.

    You stretch your point like all Liberals tend to do.
    And you have no point at all except your wild, wacky extreme right talking points.

    Unions need to charged under RICO Laws for using threats and intimidation to coerce what they want from business and Governments.

    Bid business creates the money that drives people to create jobs and new small businesses that are the greatest engines for growth.

    These idiot protesters need to be going after Obama and the Liberal agenda that has created more problems than any group in our Nation's history like the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 that told banks and savings and loans to make loaned to people who could never pay their bills.
    Being against the concept of a union or forming a union is about as anti-American as Leon Trotsky throwing a bomb into a Fourth of July picnic booth filled with mothers selling apple pie to raise money for their children's little league baseball team. The idea of people forming into a larger union beyond themselves as mere individuals, or even as mere individual states, is basic and central to America and our government and our way of life.

    The idea of a UNION is something our Founding Fathers believed in strongly and America could not have thrived and our institutions survive without the concept of UNION.

    How do I know that as a 100% certain fact? I read it somewhere. I believe it was the first purpose of those listed for the formation of the government of the United States.

    "We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union........."

    Now if I could only remember where that came from.
