    Anyway, I think you're in the wrong thread, buddy. You took a wrong turn somewhere between Aleppo and Albuquerque.
    Yeah, was not paying much attention. Was having tons of laughs with this:

    Good morning, CJ.

    Good point! Sometimes paying off a campaign donor hundreds of millions of dollars from taxpayer wallets - then learning that said donor has filed for bankruptcy so we'll never be repaid - then watching BHO give an oh-well to the rest of us.... just isn't enough! : I don't understand how someone can live on "well, what'll we do today to get some headlines and TV appearance on how great we are" - don't they ever consider "thinking ahead" a little bit? Sheesh!

    I guess that "Dont' do stupid stuff." just applies to foreign policy.

    That's all it is.

    I hope this doesn't dumb down America's electricians. Every four years (Presidental election time) the IBEW tries to increase it's union membership by fast tracking unqualified apprentice electricians as journeymen and you have these new journeymen electricians showing up on job sites who don't know how to pull wire.

    Would a link be too much to ask? Or are you talking out of your partisan ass again?

    Usually when you finish one project you're waiting weeks or even months for a new project to start up.
    Funny all the IBEW workers I knew including my dad,that worked for a telephone company, put in 40 plus hours a week for 21 years after getting out of the military. But then you do make false claims on here on a regular basis with no links.

    Veterans need jobs. Should we train them to be coal miners instead?

    Did your dad work construction or did he work for the same employer all of the time ?

    You're assuming again. Not all IBEW members work in construction. There are a multitude of jobs in the union that are NOT construction.

    Yes, if there are unfilled positions in coal mines. No if, like me, you believe that job training is not an appropriate role for the federal government. What is the point of people training for jobs that do not exist?
