    I have gone through the budget of the United States and don't see an expense line item for tax cuts. Please point that out for me. Do you think your parents keeping more of what they earn is an expense to the govt?

    Re: Walker takes broad swipe at public employee unions

    QUOTE Conservative;
    Since public unions are funded by the taxpayers they are the ones that should decide whether they want public unions and in November they supported Walker who is doing exactly what he said he would do.
    First show me a Union that is funded by taxpayers. I’ve been a Union member longer than most at DP have been alive and I can’t recall any that have been taxpayer funded.

    I take that back I helped organize for a local in Chicago burb once, that was indirectly funded by taxpayers. It seems this Repug politician skimmed off enough cash and started up a small drayage company…Rather than the Teamsters, he comes up with this lame ass company union. Lets just say he wasn’t in biz long; Oh…he got off with a couple of years parole and had to pay the unnamed burg back all their dough.

    Oh…by the way, learn how to use the quote function.



    Apparently you don't know the difference between public and private unions.
    Tell me your theory on the difference between the two.


    So union shops don't pollute? Interesting, where is your proof?
    Where did i say that?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    So you only watch videos produced by Fox if Media Matters has them on their website?

    No wonder you think Fox is so biased you can't trust anything from that channel.

    I'm starting to think the plight of the middle class will only go downhill. Too many think the rich have all the money and it's a zero sum game.
    They're to stupid or brainwashed to realize there's enough pie for everyone. They don't have to steal it through redistribution of wealth.

    Back to the topic. So how do you feel about the Unions trying to call all the shots and hurting those who don't belong to unions?
    Don't you think they have a bit too much power when the union dues they collect buys politicians? SEIU gave 60 million to Obamas campaign. What he said to them was "I know how much more we could accomplish as partners in an Obama administration" Andy Stern former Union Boss was the most frequent visitor to the WH in the beginning. Now we have Union Boss Trumka visiting there 2-3 times a week and talking to someone there daily. Doesn't that give you a warm fuzzy feeling?

    So when you give unfunded tax breaks to the rich which we have done since Reagan, and that amount is added to the debt, it is suddenly not debt anymore????

    On my budget I have to cut spending and increase revenues to pay off my debts. How is it different with the country? If you decrease revenues and increase spending what happens?

    They both do. The reason we have the debt now is that revenues have beeb cut through tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans without the spending cuts, by the same party during most of the last 3 decades. This is what you want more of?????

    Exactly what I thought, you don't know the difference between a public union and a private sector union. Who do you think pays for the unions in Wisconsin? Where do the people working for those unions get their money?


    Tell me your theory on the difference between the two.
    My theory? LOL, public unions are funded by the taxpayers and private sector unions are funded by the companies. You don't seem to understand the concept. Unions are funded by the employees, and the employees get their money from either the taxpayer or the private sector revenues. The taxpayers fund pensions and all other benefits in the public unions. Compare that to the private sector. Now you can run as you usually do.

    There you go again, those evil rich people keeping more of what they earn. Did you ever consider that you have been brainwashed? It isn't the government's money. You relly are showing your age and lack of knowledge here.

    Whysoserious provides facts, you provide your vision of a distorted reality with nothing whatsoever to back it up.

    It seemed to bother him that the pie maker was going to be the main beneficiary...that's all.
