    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

    well yes; in a labor monospony, a union can often be the only way of maintaining competition.

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.
    If you voted for Bush, you supported big spending, big government, big brother, big deficit, big war government. Obama is only carrying on the Bush doctrine of ever expansive government.

    What does any of that have to do with the thread topic? I voted for Bush because his opponent was Gore who would have been worse, IMO. I voted for Bush again when his opponent was Kerry, again a better alternative. Now who should I have voted for with those options? I refuse to waste my vote and thus vote for the better alternative, now back to the thread topic.

    Do you realize what a pawn you are of the radical left? Or could it actually be that you are part of the radical left?

    And obviously I am not? You and I have absolutely nothing in common and if what you say is true then you are indeed a pawn of the radical left. Nothing the radical left stands for is based upon the foundation upon which this country was built, individual responsibility and individual wealth creation. You and your ilk never accept personal responsibility and rely on dependence for you livlihood. It is always someone else's responsiblity for your own failures. I will put my 64 years up against your entire lifetime any day both personally and professionally.
