    Coal mines. I firmly believe in unions in the coal industry. OMG, what these men have had to endure. Coal mines are so often located in very rural areas. Without unions, they'd make peanuts as, many times, they're the only game in town. Certainly some of your other examples give one pause.

    Maggie, I come from a coal mining family, my dad, his brothers, and father worked in the coal mines in Ky and West Virginia. None of them supported the working conditions and initially supported the unions but with all liberal programs they outlive their usefulness, got too powerful and destroyed the business may familly was in. There has to be a happy medium and unions have exceeded their usefulness.

    This could certainly be. My family is no longer in the coal mining industry, so I'm unaware.

    Keynesian Tyrant.

    Regardless, this is more evidence of the tyrannical Union policies that have run amok for decades.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Whatever, don't believe for one moment that "conservatives" aren't partly at fault for the bloated government and deficit we currently have. But I guess you differentiated from Bush in all that by putting "Community Organizer" in there. Otherwise, it's the same. Conservatives...HA. Part of the problem if you ask me.

    Please don't confuse all Conservatives with Republicans, many Repubilcans aren't conservative and not all Conservatives are Republicans. Many are Libertarian

    True conservatives went the way of the dinosaur or got pissed off and joined the libertarians. All we have left are big government, big spending, big deficit, big war proponents. They call themselves different titles to make it seem like there are 2; but they're essentially the same.

    I certainly hope that some day I can be as intelligent as you think you are. I am a conservative, proud of being a conservative and don't fit into that stereotype you just created. I don't believe in the bloated, big govt. we have today and the Community Organizer President we have today. Big spending, big govt. big deficit proponents are the minority and they seem to be the most vocal. There are more conservatives than you want to admit.

    Now back to the thread topic, big unions are declining in membership and become more vocal and more violent. They will do just about anything to stay in existence and regain power.
