    I do not believe that a person is infallible. Even the Great and Glorious FDR was capable of one mistake in his twelve years. And that was his stance on public employee unions.

    That's BS, the top marginal rate when JFK became President was 91%. The top 1% pay more because the wealth has shifted to their favor since Reagan became president. Who are you kidding? The middle class is shink ing while the wealthy get richer, were're becoming a nation of oligarchs - the Koch Bros. for example.

    From the IRS


    The top 1% of wage earners make 20% of all income and pay 38% of all taxes.
    The top 5% of wage earners make 34.7% of all income and pay 58.7% of all taxes.
    The top 10% of wage earners make 45.8% of all income and pay 69.9% of all taxes.

    The bottom 50% make 12.8% of all income and pay 2.7% of all taxes.

    Currently approximately 47% of all Americans pay nothing on their earnings of 50,000/year or less and actually get money back making their tax rate negative.

    I would post the link but you don't pay any attention to links or anything else that refutes your opinions.

    I am not conviced FDR was against them. Here is the quote that going around the net these day:

    “It is impossible to bargain collectively with the government.”

    I don't find that statement conclusive proof he was against public unions.

    So violating the rights of Japanese Americans by forcing them into internment camps was okay in your book?
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Not even you can defend public unions as I have seen here on this thread. Who pays the public union employees and who do the union leaders bargain with?
