    As population grows, people get used to Government doing more and more for them. If the TPs had everything Govt does for them taken away for just one day, they wouldn't make it passed 9am. The fringe-righties live in this fantasy world that they're so independent and don't need Govt. services. Yet many of these righties didn't bat an eye when day after day no WMDs showed up. They just went with the program. At least the mainstream Dems can criticize their own.

    Govt. really let us down in regulating markets, banking, derivatives...etc. We're not getting the consumer protecting and public safety services we pay for, that's my biggest gripe. Real in the banks. Cap carbon emissions. Do what you're supposed to do.

    Thomas Sowell summed it up brilliantly, as usual.

    The biggest myth about labor unions is that unions are for the workers. Unions are for unions, just as corporations are for corporations and politicians are for politicians.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I think Moynihan said similar in 1965 or 1966 with regard to any political and civil organization in The Professionalization of Reform

    BTW, a little trivia:

    q. What was the occupation of Golda Meir before she became Prime Minister of Israel?

    a. She was a teacher at a public school in Milwaukee.

    Then refute it, you telling me that if you want to be a teacher that you don't have to join a union and that union dues aren't mandatory? You are making a fool out of yourself.

    In Louisiana, teachers aren't forced to join a union. But, if they don't join the teacher's union, they have to purchase their own insurance on the private market.
