    Other definitions aren't quite so broad and some are changed in colloquial usage. But you've already been informed of and shown that. You have demonstrated you have no problem wasting everyone's time repeating the same old tired support of unions.

    Fortunately, thanks to the first amendment, we don't (usually) censor or punish people for providing information because "something bad could happen."

    Actually watching you and Karl tag team is hilarious. As well as a lot like watching a bad Keystone Cops caper. There is so much so wrong with your tortured bridgecasting. You are in such a rush to bash out a quick (you think) witty reply that you just shoot yourself in the foot over and over. The last posts from both of you has to rank up there in some sort of 'bumble and stumble your way through already tortured thread' hall of fame.

    First this post is singularly impressive in that it manages to be hypocritically obtuse and hilarious at the same time.

I know that to many it is more fun to insult/demean other participants, but from a debate standpoint it is a logical fallacy (failure). FWIW.
    The level of hilariously obtuse hypocrisy Karl's post managed to achieve was then raised by yours. Presumably because you could not catch a clue which poster's "lecturing what constitutes proper debate" contributions you were actually mangling. Hint: Was not me, it was your PM buddy.

    Maybe someday you'll contribute an actual argument in support of the OP.
    Irony is a bitch, particularly when you are the last one to figure it out. But you go on with your bad self. The problems that come about because you are operating from a WiFi hotspot under a bridge are many. And obvious too. Danged if you are not determined to illustrate as many as you can as possible in one thread!

    The Koch Bros and many/most Republican politicians and many/most conservatives disagree with you. Via right-to-work laws, they want that union representation for free.

    well, nearly everything the pro-unionists use as evidence that Unions are the bees-knees ( weekends, 40 hr workweek, safe work environment etc) has been codified into law or regulation.... so much of what unions were once good at has already been co-opted by government.

    workers can go to govt for help now... where once upon a time, they only had unions to turn to.

    unions don't do much to "protect" anyone in the workplace....much like the govt , they offer an "after the fact" outlet to arbitrate grievances.


    and really, don't **** on govt too much.... those govt workers you are ****ting on are union members.( public sector membership is pretty large, private sector, not so much)

    Like I said earlier, we have government regulations in place to protect the workroom floor.

    Above is what you quoted and those nice bennies and wages the freeloaders got was because of the dues the union members paid.
    No, they are not. In fact in many cases they are less than what the company was willing to do in the first place. That's the idiocy of collective bargaining law. Labor must ask for more than they want and management must offer less than they are willing to provide. All this so they will bargain and hopefully strike a middle ground. Unfortunately real life doesn't operate like that.

    why should I care if those folks disagree with me?

    if they wanted representation for free, why do they put in mechanisms for unions to get paid for representation in their right-to-work legislation?
