    Run along and continue lying about who you are.

    Next you'll tell me you were in the Army and were in ME. (And i was the first woman on the moon). For God sake, you are like a dog who needs constant attention but like a dog, you just need a good kicking to shut it the **** up

    Scorpion, would you mind sticking to the topic in the OP? Your comments to Laila are venturing a tad far off the path.

    So, now that those two are rooming together......

    What happens in that once great state of California? I for one hope they go bankrupt. I for one hope the unions strike. I for one will be laughing my ass off.

    This is a promising development. Finally, the unions are starting to wake up to the situation they face; they should have done this MUCH earlier.

    Wake up to what? The fact that they are one of the biggest impediments to sound fiscal planning? Or that they ought just get it over and strike, thus bring the State of California to its knees.

    I say strike. I want to see California fail. They deserve it. They brought it on themselves.

    Give them the boot, and then allow them to compete with the other unemployed people from around California to see if they are actually the right person for their job.

    I bet there are some whom are unemployed and hungry for a new job, much more than these, as CelticLord denoted, parasites.

    How does a strike help the folks on the picket line? Strikes won't change the fact that California has no money.

    The SEIU seems to think the good times can go on forever, and that unions can perpetually survive on the labor of others. They are wrong, and the sickening thud they are hearing is reality landing right on top of them.

    They helped sow this fiscal mess in California, and now they are reaping their share of the fiscal whirlwind.

    if the union went on strike, no doubt the state could overnite hire about 100,000 qualified teachers to backfill those empty positions. it's not like they expect the kids to learn anything, anyway [/s]

    it appears the state bargained on the new contract in bad faith. don't negotiate what you won't sign. as the article mentioned, it has been over a year since the contract agreement was concluded. there is an obligation of the parties, the union and the state, to negotiate in good faith. refusing to sign what was negotiated is hardly good faith bargining

    i see a number of folks bashing labor, but where is the criticism of a management group which would allow this kind of situation to develop
