    If he read the story, then he knew Fox wasn't lying. So instead of making him lazy, it makes him dishonest.

    I'll persist as long as you and others persist in muddying the language. Again the usage of "immigrant" is a prime example.
    No link, huh?

    and no, those scabs are not "stealing" ... you walked away from that job voluntarily, they stepped in to do the job when you refused to.

    jobs don't do themselves... someone has to get it done... if not by you, then by someone else.

    as far as i'm concerned... you gave your job away voluntarily, and they accepted it....that's not "stealing" ,that's ..."gifting"
    I have sympathy for your grievances, but not for you walking off the job or the consequences that followed.... you brought them on yourself if you went on strike.

    The same can be said for you, unless you're admitting that you really didn't understand what was posted, and it was so simple and clear I don't think you really want to admit that. I never claimed it was deep, in fact just the opposite, so simple anyone could get it.

    And no, I don't mean to insult you, you are doing that for yourself. I OTOH believed you were playing a simple game of false misunderstanding thinking you to be bright enough to grasp a simple statement.

    Conservative pensioneers like you in my state are a selfish lot who are part of the problem. The conditions set forth by our Constitution in 1971 have not been met--thus making your and my COLA null and void. Just wait until GOP turds get ahold of yer pension .

    Well, you're wrong again. Dues go to the local to pay the salaries of business agents, office people, building costs and other expenses. There is a per capita of usually $3 or so per member that will go to the international. Sometimes that cost is higher, it depends on the structure and size of teh union. All of the local costs are born by the local including strke funds; money paid to those who choose to go out. Each local must be self supporting or the international can close a local and merge the members with another.

    Yeah, that's the thinking of a scab: just steal what you can't get by any other means.
