    You once again ignore the great majority of the country who do not agree with you that SS and Medicare are socialistic. What this shows is that your viewpoint is the extreme.

    Lets play who is more educated. want a shot at the title?
    First of all, labor is not a commodity... At worst it's a service. Commodities harvested or collected as the fruits of labor. Follow that? Labor is what is used to obtain commodities. Labor is the result of living organisms. Commodities are owned. Humans, in this country cannot be owned, which is the end result of labor viewed as a commodity... Slavery, or wage slavery.

    As for success... Define it...

    Amazing the lengths you'll go to avoid discussing Gompers and Taft-Hartley, which you brought up. Freakin hilarious.

    Bottom line; without the American workers what mainline labor do you have?
    Without the American worker the Taft-hartley act vs Norris Laguardia would be good for what toleit paper?

    1) what is with your silly diversions? some made the claim that the average union member is more versed about labor law than labor lawyers. why should I discuss Taft-hartley? do you claim to be a labor lawer or a union member? its not material to this thread and I doubt you would understand the issue but it was designed to reign in the power unions got under the New Deal administration

    2) Marx defined commodity to include labor. Labor, like energy, material, etc are items a manufacturer needs to produce a product. Its idiotic for a manufacturer to pay more for any of those items than the going market rate.

    you appear rather agitated. Corporations can tend to move to where labor is available. How about your working class heroes that you bray about?? Economic reality and economic power might not be comforting to those on the bottom of the totem pole but denying obvious realities are silly.


    I am sorry that you don't like the golden rule-that being those who have the gold make the rules but ranting about it doesn't solve your obvious problems
