    Anyone venturing into debate on labor unions should be familiar with that, or risk looking foolish and uninformed. Or hysterical.
    The union contract means nothing if the business goes under.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    This should be shocking to everyone, no matter which way they lean.
    Not so shocking when you realize that many sectors, especially the fast food industry, do not pay a living wage to it's full time workers, and then encourages them to apply for welfare benefits. They even distribute pamphlets to their employees on how to apply.

    And 49 million of them were on the Bush dole when Obama came in.

    Once the GOP woke up in 2009, they realized that we had an unemployment disaster in full-swing,
    a deficit disaster in full-swing, negative GDP for the last half of 2008, and I'm just getting started .
