    In the red corner, you have the Republicans, the rich corporate elite, gaining support by playing on the fears of the population and kindling the inferno of patriotism in the ignorant and gullible.

    In the blue corner, the democrats, who try to gain support by educating people and giving them the freedom to think for themselves.

    To anyone who can think rationally, the best choice is clear. And so Republicans really, really hate intellectuals.
    In the internet corner, some guy who condescends to everyone he disagrees with and expects their support

    Why are there going to be democratic landslides considering a majority of these unions probably voted democrat anyway?
    I'm willing to bet even moderates think this was a bad idea.

    I hate to keep reposting, but he seems to miss the post if I don't.
    Ah, thank you.

    Fortunately, I have a belief in my self that the customer should be happy with the finished product, and that I should be personally responsible for my work. I guess if I didn't believe in at least the latter, then I could find it easier to stomach a union.

    Democrats seem more likely not to vote, unless something angers them (like this). Something like this always kicks up a bunch of democratic supporters that nobody knew existed previously.

    When you say union members do worse work than non union members I take it quite personally since I've never worked anywhere that wasn't unionized.

    If that is your personal belief, then why would that change once unionized?

    being in a union doesn't mean you don't have to be responsible for your own work where do you come up with this crap?

    the point of unions is protecting people from unjust termination and making sure that employees have breaks and goddamn drinking water if they work outside and are treated well, not fucking over businesses out of spite

    i mean in every thread where you defend the tea-parties you say "i'm not one of them" but you've certainly swallowed their Koch brothers funded rhetoric hook line and sinker

    Maybe I'm misreading but are you insinuating that by joining a union workers are no longer responsible for their work?

    Because trying to ban certain age groups that would otherwise be able to vote from voting is oppression.

    According to Reuters, he never mentioned it on his campaign webiste, or debated it during his two year campaign. Even the republican voters didn't vote for this.

    What?

    If I had a problem with my boss I went and talked with my boss. If I had a problem with the way things were being run overall that's when I'd go to the Shop Steward instead.

    The ENTIRE POINT of a union is to give the workers a voice, and you're telling me that unions restrict worker's voices? Good god, man, what kind of mental gymnastics did you have to do?

    The workers said the work slowdown was pushed by supervisors, not the unions, as the result of growing hostility between Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the workers responsible for clearing the snow.

    oh well one union with problems certainly means the entire concept of unions is flawed

    plus one guy using a gun to kill a person means that we gotta get rid of those things, too

    and one tea-partier holding a racist sign sure means those teabaggers are all a buncha racists
