    economic reality is stomping the living crap out of manufacturing unions Public sector unions should be banned. and we never should have protected private sector unions--if the workers could get enough to agree with them-then they could dictate terms-if not the employer could fire the unionistas. that is the way it should have been

    So, back to social Darwinism my friend? Neutralism? Or????
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    No way to stop it. If you pay more for the same quality labor than your competition you go out of business

    public sector unions should be banned even FDR was against them
