    Ah don't tell me it was you who helped change the child labor laws or it was you who brought in sexual harassment. so workers could work in peace, or the employeee's rights law.

    Perhaps you held Johnson's hand when he signed the right to work law.

    Your law books don't mean a damn thing when corporations outsource and 400, 000 people are **** out of luck.
    That's just one example, there are many more.

    However I suppose you are going to say that's the law.
    What I don't understand is the very government that passed these laws "that you support" ,you want to make smaller.
    What if by some quirk of fate you had a smaller government and they were all Democrats???

    that is a most interesting and idiotic response to this discussion. I doubt the average union member has any clue about labor history, labor law (other than what they are spoon fed by the leadership-ie how to file a grievance) etc.

    I suspect I'd do pretty well against most of the people on this board.

    Its like one guy noted on another thread. He was saying he was stockpiling food and his "nutty" neigbor was stockpiling ammo. Then he realized that if the SHTF, the other guy would be doing the eating.

    They also whine about bailouts for companies that have failed while demanding more and more entitlements for individuals who also have "failed" economically
    Man you gotme confused with a whole differant poster that's the best you got ?
    Libs whine? Like Republicans don't.
    How many workers were helped by the last bailout.
    If rich investors can eat a bad stock investment easy they should have no trouble eating a chunk of tax rebate

    The most things average people demand is jobs to make a living buy American products, and pay taxes.
    You want less jobs, which means less product sales and higher taxes which youor any rich CEO does not want to pay also if product sales aren't met, profits will go down that means cutbacks and layoffs white collar layoffs.

    you keep attributing things to me that have no basis in fact.

    I don't want less jobs, I want less government waste and less taxes. HOw does that decrease jobs?

    By all means, give us a primer on Gompers and T-H Act. I'm sure you'll be accurate and can source and link your claims to interpreting them correctly...
