    Oh I am sure people like Buffett and Soros want one and they think jacking up taxes to insulate their positions might work

    Nice story... that can't be confirmed and does nothing to lend credibility to you being any sort of authority on the subject.

    So... tell us what ya know, that would be credible. Then tell us how it relates to tax cuts to the wealthy...

    Btw... one of J. Mack's hallmarks was integrity... I think you know where I'm going with that...

    you can take cheap shots at my credibility all you want. its common among a few of the extreme lefties on this forum. I couldn't care less

    the fact is the claim on the table is that the average union member is more knowledgeable about labor laws and unions' place in american politics. I deny that.

    I also find it interesting that those who demand the most information from other posters are least able or willing to honestly answer questions put to them

    In fact I would note that you are more likely to buy into the propaganda and less likely to be able to see objective reality
    What is BS is that you pretend that you have some sort of sacred knowledge that union members do not have. That is the ultimate BS.

    I think being a labor lawyer with a masters in labor relations puts me a bit ahead of your average Postal worker or union stooge. How many union members have law or labor relations degrees Haymarket? You

    that is truly funny coming from someone who lionizes big government

    lets do a body count

    how many people have been murdered by corporations over say the last 100 years versus big governments?

    Labor law and labor history, have a masters in that
    In that you remind me of Dr. Joyce Brothers who as a young woman in 1955 competed on a game show - The 64,000 Dollar Question - and was given the category of boxing. She memorized stats and record books and won the grand prize winning a great deal of money at that time. She could tell you just about every single person who fought for a professional boxing title, who the opponent was, who won and in what round and how.

    Dr. Joyce Brothers had no knowledge of how to either throw or take a punch and never boxed in her life.

    So much for your masters in labor history.
