    Your post indicates that the unions represent the respected and skilled American working man and woman! These midddle class workers who make America work and are the back bone of America support the Democrats. Why did the Republicans lose this valuable sector of American success?? Is it because they chose to exclusively represent the CEO/CFO greedy elite cabals?? Dumb move! Now they and their turd propagandists like Limbaugh and Hannerdy are trying to convince feeble minded tea baggers that unionized Americans are socialist commies LMAO! Wake up Baggers you are being tricked !

    What do you expect after 2.5 years of money laundering policy?

    Hey, I'll give you a solar loan if you hold a $35,000 plate/dinner. Sure no problem!

    Hey unions, I'll have the federal government (TAX PAYER) bail you out so you can continue to have overcompensated jobs and just give me a kick back. Sure no problem!

    Hey Pelosi, get your brother in law on the phone. I have a solar loan for him! Just kick some back to me. Sure no problem!

    I see that O (along with some others) is carrying debt with cash on hand....

    Maybe just waiting for a billable invoice?

    What on earth did you think the stimulus money was for? Employment? No, that's way up.
    Did you think the government insured loans were to actually provide green energy? No, they were to pay back and insure future campaign contributions.
    Why do you think he bailed out GM and Chrysler? To save the car companies? BS, it was to save the UAW from both companies' bankruptcies that could have relieved them of unsustainable wages, benefits and pension packages but your boy stepped in to save his voters in the UAW as well as his campaign contributors from the UAW.

    If this president had any interest in America today, he wouldn't be on a bus campaigning while the country suffers. Can't you comprehend that? If he was worth anything, his record would re-elect him and he could actually work to better America. Hence the million dollar Canadian buses and the campaign tour in the middle of his term. You guys may try to re-elect him but I'm betting there are enough sound minds to see to it that he is a one-term president.
    No longer is Jimmy Carter the worst American President ever!

    I know what Socialism is. For the people by the people...The whole community shares the natural resources, etc... A classless society eliminating Capitalism.

    I do believe that Unionism is a step in the direction of Socialism. Here is the SLP statement The Socialist Program

    When an employee is paid not by merit but instead by a set wage in a contract negotiated by union/employer and it's the same for everyone in that group and increases based on hours worked not on performance....isn't that socialist not capitalist?
