    Let me ask you this. Where do you fall on the age old question of which knee is the better to cap - the right knee or the left knee? The first dozen or so that I did, I felt the right knee on a right handed person was the correct one since it tended to be the leg they led with. But then I read the seminal work by Vito Brazatti in which he claims that 280 plus years of research in over a dozen nations shows that the left knee poses far more adjustment problems for the victim.

    I would love to know your expert opinion on that topic.
    lol..i would go with the left, while the right leg is generally where the power is generated from, the left serves to balance and adjust movement.

    Yes of course.......Democrats believe a 99% tax rate will solve all problems........except slavery.

    Could you provide a link to any Democrat who advocates that 99% tax rate?

    ....winning.....

    bloated paycheck? hardly...'diamond inlayed pension'? nope(again, showing how little you know of unions, as you assume everyone in a union gets a pension) free gold plated health care? i wish(actually pay around 27% of the cost of my healthcare, as per my CONTRACT) stealing jobs ? uh, no....joining together with like minded folks to negotiate a CONTRACT, working with these same folks to build a better future for ourselves? ABSOFRICKIN'LOUTLEY....
    Public Sector Union Slobs are not the same as Private Sector Union slobs.......the former represents some of the laziest and most incompent people to ever stain the planet......the latter is a distant second, but still moving up the ladder of Union Slobbery.

    randel, are you a leftwing zealot or simply a pawn for the unions to use for their own benefits? How are the following industries working out for you as these are examples of union "successes?" How many of these industries have had bankruptcies, massive layoffs, going out of business sales, or mergers just to stay in existence thanks to the unions. How did the unions help the people in those industries keep their jobs?

    Steel
    Automobiles
    Railroads
    Airlines
    Education
    Government workers
    Longshoremen
    Coal mines
    Mariners

    Yeah, and Republicans believe 1% tax rate will solve all problems.
