    It's not impotence, it's IGNORANCE.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Did I miss the part of that post where that allegation was supported with verifiable evidence?

    The main purpose of a public sector union is to transfer tax money to the Democrat Party.

    Don't think so? Ask any public sector union official if they would be willing to give up automatic deduction and paying of union dues by the State for the right to collectively bargain.

    Just remember to be out of arms length when asking that question. You might get hit by an outraged union official.

    ROFLMAO!

    Could you please provide some verifiable evidence which states clearly that this is the purpose of a public sector union?

    LOL!

    I did in my post. You go find a public sector union official and ask them my posted question.

    Hell, you could answer that question for yourself. Would you be willing to give up automatic state deduction and paying of union dues for the right of public sector unions to exist?

    You really are fun.

    Unions, especially public sector unions, are very useful tools with which to throw out those who would be dictators. A case in point is Governor Walker's overreaching by busting down the unions, something which he said absolutely nothing about when he was running for governor.

    Another case in point?



    This is what you get when a union stands up to a big repressive government..... Democracy in action.

    There is nothing in there in the way of verifiable evidence which offers any data, information or anything which supports your opinion other than your own opinion.

    Please try again. Present some verifiable evidence other than your own opinion or your own conclusions or beliefs.

    OK, name for me one state that has viable public sector unions and the state does not automatically deduct union dues from the employee's pay then transfer it to the unions. One state will do.

    Go!
