    Seriously, you guys run to PM to whine to each other you need someone to go take up for each other? Ya'll got a name for your little group? Something about acting a stooge in numbers of three? Or is there a fourth, a Shemp waiting for a PM too? I've got the same offer for you as Sangha and Karl. Accuse me of your shtick as much as you want, hell keep attacking me for daring to spot obvious baits too. I'll just laugh and utilize the proper method for dealing with those who lecture about their own game. Won't be my problem to deal with. Don't like that I'm like plenty of others around here and can spot stink bait? Whine some more, either way you'll just have to deal with it.

    Yeah, very well said. That is pretty much why threads like this are useless. I post in them so that onlookers can have some factual and experienced opinion to compare with the unexperienced hyperbolic vitriol.

    You saying that is absolutely hilarious!

    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.

    Boy, reading the pro union hacks in here, you'd think that Union membership was really something, and that people were clamoring to join them...Instead, as always with progressive arguments, the opposite of what they spew is often true.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Teamsters eh?...... I made a great deal of money repairing the damage Teamster drivers did to company equipment that was being used by scabs while a strike was going on....

    the perpetrators were even so nice as to give me a heads up to what damage they did, so I could make sure to bring the proper parts/supplies. ( mostly cut airlines /electrical cords, and a quite few slashed tires)

    yeah, the Teamsters, such a great bunch of guys

    as for the topic, it's wrong an inappropriate to publish the list....as a few of you have proven, it's all about intimidation and/or shaming the non-union workers (who are not harming you in any shape form or fashion).
    if i were named on that list, i would sue the union for using my name without permission..... i might win, i might lose... but those wasting those hard won union dues on lawyers is just as good as any other purpose they go for.

    Now that they've given you everything you need as a rollover in non-union shops.
    How long do you think it will take the GOP to depress your wages, benefits and working conditions when they get back in power ?
