    how many people have been murdered by corporations over say the last 100 years versus big governments?
    Sadly we will never know the body count of dead, wounded , maimed and injured at the hands of corporations and their abuses. I sure wish did though.

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.
    your problem is that you make assumptions that having a great deal of education in a field precludes one from having practical experience such as trying a "decertification" trial or being involved in a "supervised election" by the DOL or defending a bunch of 301(a) LMRA Cases

    so you are just making stuff up or hoping for something. and since I have been on both sides of the table in such cases I believe i have a far better perspective than someone whose only experience is that of a unionista

    It puts you in the position of the dried up old spinster and her shelves filled with worn romance novels who has never been kissed.

    Your highly negative and prejudicial attitude about labor unions and working people tells us all we need to know about your "knowledge" on the subject.

    Care to tell us which side you were on in the decertification trial you boast about?

    its would pale compared to Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, the Nazis and other malignant governments run amok

    and if there were no corporations we wouldn't have the top standard of living and your sainted union wouldn't exist either

    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
    Oh, I never pass up a chance to show off... just... haven't see a question put to me yet.

    Yet I've seen you dodge three of mine. I find that people that talk about their alleged CV to impart authority on a subject, in order to avoid that subject... suspect.

    As to the claim on the table... the average union member is more knowledgeable than who?

    You?

    So far all they'd have to do is cite any fact about the case law you listed and they'd have shown more than you so far... just sayin'.

    As for left, far left or otherwise... You can keep your labels... and your partisan party allegiances.

    Since when are your unsubstantiated claims considered fact by anyone other than you?

    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.
    You have mentioned such boasts before and it is highly insulting and the antithesis of intellectual debate.

    No - what I claim is that any so called knowledge you have about labor unions does not in any way negate or mitigate your self imposed ideological blindness to what a labor union actually does for its members.

    yeah you are an objective poster? LOL you are as big a hack as anyone else-you just don't have the stones to put it in your lean.

    my claims have been backed up by one of the administrators on this board and if you want to get the full story you can meet the standards I have constantly applied. agree to give this forum ten grand if I prove what I claim and I will prove it beyond any doubt to any two moderators. you pick one I pick the other
