    Yeah, it's worked so well for all those non-union miners in West Virginia and Kentucky. And those non-union textile workers throughout the old confederacy.

    I've argued neither, but since you attempted to divert instead of providing a single instance, you've been written off, yet again.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    More right wing bull****. I'm guessing not even you believe that.

    Right now the federal government unfairly tilts the balance of power to Unions. There is no reason for that. Let the two sides compete and let unions compete to prove that they can actually provide value-added for the worker.


    you know why German union participation is so much higher? Because they have national right-to-work laws, so the Unions had to get better, or die. And so get better they did .

    I just didn't like seeing lazy asses keep their jobs because of union protectIon.
    But you didn't mind enjoying the working conditions and the wages that the union had achieved for you, did you?

    uh. no. That is literally the exact economic model that Unions push. You can't keep higher prices unless you are able to restrict supply.

    You sure wouldn't know that judging by the unemployment and poverty rates in Blue States.

    Lets just agree that Unions are Pro-Union, m'kay ?

    That the Union and their dues comes first.

    tell me more about how all those miners in WVa aren't unionized?

    Hey, how is it working for all those unions up in Detriot? I imagine they must be doing way better than those poor ununionized auto shops down in the South

    Yeah, right

    Pretend that you don't understand the effects unionization have had on compensation all you like. I'll put that in the same category as your insistence that you know the unions intended to people intimidate non-members.

    I must not have been that impressed because I did get a non union job.
