    Libs always talk about being tolerant. You really dont sound tolerant of my views. You do not sound tolerant of my view that life is sacred. You do not sound tolerant of my religious views. You dont sound tolerant of my view that I should be able to get a job without being blackmailed by the leftest Union.

    No common sense, unwilling to think for themselves, twisted thinking, narrow minded, all of these because I do not think the same way you do. Intolerant!!!! Yes, Risky, tell me more about being intolerant.

    Read my lean. Jesus H. Christ! I'm tolerant of your religious views as long as you keep them off me and man. Practice that Christiban **** on yourself and the people who think like you. I'm tolerant of that.

    LOL! From where you stand damn near everyone must be a liberal. I do not want any religion in government, including mine.

    Risky, this is an example of how you are coming across to me. Does it really sound tolerant?

    I don't care if you are gay, GmH. There are gay conservatives. My web developer is a gay conservative and very conservative and very religious. So you are not the only one. I've never said I was intolerant of gay people. I'm not. My web developer as an example is a reguar guy who happens to be gay. It's not like you or he chose to be gay anymore than I chose being straight. He's very conservative as well. That is something he choses to be. However, GmH, I never said you were gay. How would I have known?I'm thinking you have your threads mixed. I don't know why you felt compelled to tell me. I don't care if you are gay. I don't see it as being relevent.

    Does the following really sound like a tolerant comment?

    I am tolerant of your ******** views as long as you keep them off me and man. Practice that ******** crap on yourself and the people who think like you. I'm tolerant of that
    I edited my original comment

    You claim conservatives are intolerant yet you make a remark like the above to me about being a Christian. It does sound like you are the intolerant one.

    I think this man said it best:


    I agree with you that MLK was a man of great courage and had an immense and lasting positive impact on the American society.

    The quote you post reveals none of this, however, and only shows that along with his greatness, the pettiness of political cooperation claimed even MLK as a victim.

    • Wages in right-to-work states are 3.2% lower than those in non-RTW states, after controlling for a full complement of individual demographic and socioeconomic variables as well as state macroeconomic indicators. Using the average wage in non-RTW states as the base ($22.11), the average full-time, full-year worker in an RTW state makes about $1,500 less annually than a similar worker in a non-RTW state.
    • The rate of employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI) is 2.6 percentage points lower in RTW states compared with non-RTW states, after controlling for individual, job, and state-level characteristics. If workers in non-RTW states were to receive ESI at this lower rate, 2 million fewer workers nationally would be covered.
    • The rate of employer-sponsored pensions is 4.8 percentage points lower in RTW states, using the full complement of control variables in [the study's] regression model. If workers in non-RTW states were to receive pensions at this lower rate, 3.8 million fewer workers nationally would have pensions.


    These figures are from this group:

    Economic Policy Institute: Funding sources, staff profiles, and political agenda

    <snip>
    The Post reported that eight labor unions made a five-year funding commitment to EcPI in its first year:

    AFSCME
    United Auto Workers
    Steelworkers
    United Mine Workers
    Machinists
    Communications Workers
    Service Employees
    Food and Commercial Workers
    The unions‘ first year funding commitment totaled $460,000, with another $340,000 coming from private foundations.

    EcPI‘s budget has grown substantially since its 1986 birth, but labor unions remain major donors. Government filings show that in fiscal year 2008, labor groups contributed over $1.6 million; in fiscal year 2009, labor groups contributed over $2.5 million.

    Between 2002 and 2005, half of EcPI‘s top donors were labor groups, adding a combined total of $3.89 million—about one-fifth of EcPI‘s total contributions during this period. The organization also received money from left-leaning foundations including George Soros‘ Open Society Institute. The full list of top donors, and the amount donated between 2002 and 2005, is shown below.

    Ford Foundation: $3,871,000
    American Federation of Teachers: $1,150,924
    Open Society Institute: $1,011,400
    Rockefeller Foundation: $850,000
    Mott Foundation: $730,000
    Wellspring: $700,000
    Joyce Foundation: $650,000
    AFL-CIO: $595,138
    AFSCME: $562,997
    SEIU: $410,923
    UAW: $400,000
    United Steelworkers of American: $400,000
    National Education Association: $378,474
    EcPI‘s Board of Directors is a "who‘s who" of powerful union leaders, including Richard Trumka (AFL CIO), R. Thomas Buffenbarger (IAM), Bob King (UAW), Randi Weingarten (AFT), Gerald McEntee (AFSCME), and Leo Gerard (Steelworkers).
