    Nonresponsive. Yes, the parties flipped, Mr. fairy tale narrative.

    Many Americans who claim to be "reasonable" are anything but rational or reasonable.

    Labor unions were far more entwined with organised crime back in the 1930s and '40s than they were as the well-funded propaganda mills began to spew forth ideological nonsense in the late '50s and '60s. Propaganda which led to the "right to work" laws in various states. Propaganda which was quite reminiscent of the crap that Southern politicians used to control their white populations by claiming the "niggers were after 'real Americans' jobs." The difference lying in the use of organised crime groups and communism as the bugaboos.

    Funny, in a very sad way, that the growth rate for American wages slowed as union membership declined, all the while the American worker was becoming more productive and the corporate executive compensation increased several hundred times more rapidly than the workers' wages.

    Today labor unions are worthless. They are political tools...nothing more. Unions protect and indeed reward incompetence while dumping money into political campaigns...not coincidentally...campaigns you would support.

    I wish I knew more about this "democrat" party. They sound really bad but I can't find out anything about them. For some reason, partisan blowhards refer to this party all the time, which is nice, but they seem to be an invented party as best I can tell. Weird.

    I know the parties in the South have flipped. Just for example in my dad's hometown when he was growing up, the Democratic primary was the election for local offices - often for real, because there was no Republican running, but in reality that was always the case because 100% of the elected office holders were Democrats. Much of the South was similarly aligned. Now that same town is roughly 100% Republican. Again, much of the South is the same way - whites, especially in rural areas, are overwhelmingly Republican. That's what it looks like when parties "flip."

    It's sort of in the record - one of those things we call "facts" but that some dull witted right wingers disregard when necessary to avoid cognitive dissonance, and keep their partisan myths alive.

    Well enough to know it is a cesspool. Something you have not even attempted to refute.

    Always nice to see an answer which isn't actually an answer to the points I have made. Obviously, you hate unions, even though your only knowledge in regards to unions has come from various propaganda mills that you 'know' are always correct.

    I dont 'hate' anything. I recognize them for the worthless corrupt political tools that they have become. Thats not from propaganda mills...its a historical reality. Unions today exist to dump cash into the democrat party and reward incompetence. I understand why you love them so.

    So, you don't 'hate' labor unions but your words are telling a different story. Funny how every accusation you level against unions has been regurgitated from those propaganda mills I mentioned.
