    You are correct sadly, according to the 2010 consensus, 7 out of 10 Americans are now officially poor.

    Seems to me some people only favor capitalism when capitalism favors business.

    When employees want to form an entity to potentially better their financial situation, its an organization of thugs, right? They put pressure on corporations and threaten them with financial consequences. But, hey, employees have never faced that treatment from the companies they work for, right?

    they should be allowed to d that-just as the employer should have the absolute right to fire anyone who joins the union

    Sure. And the employees have the right to exert pressure en masse to prevent that action.

    I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt until I read the above.

    What this particular union is doing amounts to nothing more than a mere boycott, but it has nothing to do with the Democrat party or the President.

    Exactly how can the state of Wisconsin get their budget under control if their revenue stream is being impacted by an all out boycott? No taxes collected (or a severe reduction in same) = a reduced revenue stream. No revenue, budget is thrown completely out of wack!! But it would certainly take care of the state's spending problem...they won't have the revenue to spend.
