    Right, the individuals could go on unemployment instead of getting a paying job and paying union dues. As for the personal attack claim, I stated my opinion based upon dealings with you. It is my opinion.

    We currently spend as much as the rest of the world combined on military. We could easily cut our military by 3/4 and still be the most powerful country on the planet.
    On what experience and data do you base this assertion?

    call it what you will, it is par for you when proven wrong....again, they have a choice when they apply for the job...if you don't have a problem, great...if you do, you don't have to work here...you have 30 days...they have a choice.

    I wonder if others are as tired as I am of your referencing those tax cuts. Do you even know what a defined benefit plan is? I'm guessing the answer is, "No." Or maybe it's, "Yes!! But I want one anyhow!!!" Well, middle class taxpayers can't afford to indulge you much longer.
    I think your concerns over middle class wage earners and defined benefit plans are about to be resolved. Try to be patient the middle class will not be around much longer

    You have yet to prove anyone wrong on any issue but you do cheerlead a lot. How does the union dues get paid by the teachers in Wisconsin? Do they write a check or have it automatically deducted and sent to the union? Let me answer it for you, it is a payroll deduction thus taxpayer money goes directly to the unions as the employee never gets the money even though part of his/her compensation.

    Well, we spend 43% of the world's total. It's still pretty significant.

    Catawba does make a lot of wild accusations that he/she can never back up. I believe most of it is for shock value and attention. He/she should be ashamed but apparently has little pride.
