Pretty soon unions will exist only to shake down taxpayers so they can contribute to Democrats.

Some say this has already happened.


Fun facts, union membership dropped 15% in WI last year. It should continue to fall as government workers tire of paying fees. Michigan should be interesting next year.


Pretty soon unions will exist only to shake down taxpayers so they can contribute to Democrats.

We are pretty much there, now that TBTF is enshrined and any union member who loses his job can count on Uncle Sugar setting him up for health care and other entitlements. Eventually the taxpayer will be on the hook one way or another.


Your state and Indiana have blazed the trail for all other states to follow. I know Michigan can do it too. Now that Michigan is Granholm -free and doesn't have felons as their mayors there is indeed hope.I would love to see Philly follow suit but I am not holding my breath on that one.


I heard on the radio today that New York has the highest percentage of its government workers unionized. Something like 73 %. Hell to pay.


TomM and the rest of you are al correct. Public Unions, the Legacy media, University industry-- they are all part of TeamLeft, who look to ripoff the productive classes as much as possible and accumulate as much political power as possible to capture the productive classes and make them cronies. there's a word for this... fascism.

What is the word for a nation that sits American Idoly by while the fascists pull a coup?


Poltroon? Idiots? Useful Idiots?

(how about "Independent Voter"?)

And they are not fascists, they are Marxist-Leninists and Maoists (with a dash of Peron and Chavez thrown in).

Watch them steal the House in '14. There is little to stop them. Then they will strike the final fatal blow. You ain't seen nothing yet. We are in completely new territory, and only about 25% to 30% of the country is even aware of it.

We need to know nothing more than how Hillary and Obama have completely buried this Libya Business, or how they got away with Fast and Furious.

All of this would have brought any prior president down--even a Democrat.

You think that the country is unreconizable now just you wait four years.

It always amazes that these hideous mediocrities may well destroy the USA, and do it right out in the open.

A people that allows this deserves what it gets. America has lost its soul.

At least the UK had to go through WWI. What great cataclysm have we gone through to break us so? None. We just weakly give up the country because of spiritual sloth, because we believe what the media tells us, becuase we did not pay attention to what they were teaching our children, because we were cowed by political correctness.

In the end these people will be more powerful than the European aristocrats of yore, and they will do much greater damage to Civilization over the long haul. For what? Hillary's lust for power? Feminist narcissism? Obtuse Boomer nostalgia? An ideology that we fought tooth and nail for 50 years and triumphed over?

Ir is perhaps the saddest and most tradgic turn of evens in history.

"Watch them steal the House in '14. There is little to stop them."

You can always tell the people in Nevada, it was really those idiots in New York; who elected Obama. Or you can tell the people Upstate, it was those idiots Downstate who elected our idiot of a Senator. But it's harder to tell the people in the district, that it was the people on the other side of the district who elected our idiot in the House; because unlike those other situations people in the same Congressional districts often physically close enough to talk to each other. And when everyone in the local Walmart start exchanging information, and no one seems to have voted for someone, questions will arise, and answers will be demanded. That may be the only reason the GOP still controls the House. Too difficult to steal elections at that level.


I have tried in vain to explain to people that the Obamacare "stay on your parents plan until 26" was essentially a giveaway to the govt employee unions. Most of these people pay little to nothing for their insurance plans, which are usually 'Cadillac' plans with low/no deductibles. Each and every 'child" of these people will be getting this plan at taxpayer expense until age 26. Even people in the private sector, who pay on average about 25-30% of the premiums, will have all their "children" on this. It will be 100%, not just a few. Every single person aged 18-26 with a parent getting insurance thru an employer, either a govt job or other, will be getting a free insurance policy paid for by everyone else. Not just some, but each and every one. Nobody seems to grasp this.
