    You and I both know this, ptif219 claiming that at one time that he was a shop steward is almost as ludicrous as his statements that he don’t know what his job was at the time he was steward.

    Also note, that the union that he was shop steward at was…drum roll…the AFL/CIO.

    i just get so tired of seeing this trotted out...'oh my god dues are being used'...yeah, i had my doubts about the 'steward' claim as well, as he was not well informed as to how his union worked. I have served as vice chair, and chairperson on my shop's bargaining committee, as well as shift steward twice for my shift.

    Under the rule of law, the Supreme Court decides what is Constitutional if challenged. The right of Unions to exist has not been successfully challenged in over a 100 years they have been in existence. It is yet to be seen if the Citizens United ruling holds up to that test of time.

    There’s a couple of more on this thread that have come close to the bull**** that pfffft has posted but have come up short. Still watching though.

    Great, sounds like unions then have their own printing presses to generate the millions of dollars they pump into elections every year to elect pro union candidates. If they don't have printing presses for money where does all that money come from if not dues?
