    If you want me to find the AFL-CIOs list of which candidates union's support, I'm sure it's available somewhere, and I'm quite confident it'll back me up.
    And I am quite confident that I don't give two curses what the labor unions have to say about pretty much anything considering how they have hamstrung American industry.

    If you think that political party is dependent upon profession, you are deluding yourself. You wanted a Republican longshoreman and I showed you one of many. A great many.

    you showed me a guy who's been dead for decades probably and pledged allegiance to a party which is utterly different from the Republican party in any way except name.

    and the AFL-CIO is labor.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I wouldn't say stereotypical liberals. Stereotypical American hating Euro-trash maybe. I know this was played up for TV and such, but I think that limey bastard should have his teeth knocked out.

    If you think that party affiliation is determined by the AFL-CIO or whatever other commie union bull**** organization you list, you are deluding yourself.

    Republicans and Democrats alike cross every spectrum.

    I think that the Democrats treat labor better, so labor, at least organized and self-conscious labor, tends to vote for them.

    The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations are extremely old, respected and established organizations.

    They're not exactly Code Pink.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And Republicans tend to treat the economy more sensibly overall and oppose unions for that reason...free market and all that.

    Organized and "self concious" labor tends to get duped more frequently because they are looking for someone to promise them a bigger cut than they deserve. They'll jump at whoever tells them the most convincing and appetizing lie.

    I think right now is a hard time to argue for the benefits of an unregulated market.

    Sometimes, in an unregulated market, people get insane loans that make no sense to anyone and end up with houses they cannot possibly afford. Then everything collapses and OH **** OH **** OH **** OH ****, etc. Sometimes that happens.

    So we have Republicans who promise labor an end to the "death tax" (which they don't pay because they don't own much), an end to abortion (which they disproportionately need due the higher pregnancy rates of the working classes and their inability to cope with more children) and an barrier to gay marriage which affects them in no possible way.

    And we have the Democrats who promise labor healthcare, reasonable working hours and an ability to retire in dignity.

    Lets just say for the purpose of the argument that they're both lying, for ulterior motives.

    The Democratic promises, if actually followed through, would help labor. The Republican promises are worthless and in some instances actually damaging.

    Except that no one was ever given a job by a poor man. Taxing the wealthy out of their wealth inevitably harms labor because it drives up the unemployment rate.

    No one is taxing anyone into the poor house, they're just forcing corporations to treat their employees with human dignity.

    It also allows the employers to become more functional consumers, benefiting the economy.

    A Wal-Mart employee that's been unionized and is payed full time for 40 hours a week is spending more money then a private Wal-Mart employee that works 38 hours week (all that Wal-Mart will let them) and is therefore only paid for "part time" and isn't given any benefits.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    It's up to Wal-mart to attract the caliber employ it wants with what it has to offer and it is up to the worker to find a job that will suit his needs.
