    Your contending that paying union dues, that you earned, if you’re a public sector employee is taxpayer funding of Unions. is that correct?


    Fine. here are the rules and guidelines. Go down and familiarize yourself with the rules and we can start maybe next Monday.I’ll PM a mod that is familiar with the true debate format and see if we can sit it up.

    This thread is for those of you looking for a True Debate, private debate, or reverse debate, but don't already have someone in mind or lined up to debate you. Before posting here, please make sure that you've read the stickies for Battlegrounds and Disputations Guidelines AND the sticky with the rules for the particular debate you're looking for.

    In your post, please include the following:

    *Type of debate you're interested in - True, Private, or Reverse
    *Topic(s) you're interested in
    *Your position
    *Timeframe you are available for a debate (this is especially important for *True Debates, not so much so for private or reverse)
    *Any other pertinent information you can think of

    Once you've found an opponent, if you are interested in a True Debate, please PM Caine so he can set it up for you. If you don't hear back from him within a couple of days, please PM me and I will take care of it. Members can set up their own private and reverse debates.

    If you have any questions, please PM myself or Caine.

    education spending has exploded even as scores have plummeted. methinks more money isn't the solution.

    that is absolutely true, public union employees are paid by the taxpayer and forced to participate in the union if they want the job thus have no choice but to contribute some of their taxpayer funded paycheck to the unions. Logic 101 says taxpayer funds are going to the unions.

    We spend more on the military than the rest of the world combined. Now that is a priority!

    once more, a service was performed, the money received was called WAGES...the taxpayers have no claim to this money ....they are paying for services rendered. you sure seem to have a hard time comprehending this.

    Unions force payment of dues, what part of that don't you understand? Your support of unions and total ignorance of business as well as logic is quite telling.
