    Obama has been meeting behind closed doors with Union leaders over the past few days.....he is obviously a tool for them and needs to be put back in the tool box.

      You mean like Cheney met behind closed doors with executives from EXXON, Eron and Big Coal CEOs to help out on energy policy?

      Wow, you have not been paying attention.  Unions are in decline as is the American worker.

                    or the best Greg moment lately was after the hurricane they showed a video on the five of these teenage boys running in nothing but shorts behind the guy on camera and one pulled his pants down and greg said, "how did they get out of my apartment I locked the door before I left."

    Thank god for unions, or it'd be Dickens all over again.."Please sir, I want some more."....
    "MORE?  MORE?"
    "THE MORE GOES TO ME"

    Unions have been a blessing to America, and that is why the Money Bags want to take them away.

    Unions guarantee a standard which a money-grub can't break.
    Which a money-grub would break in a second.

    Unions mean a days work for a days pay, not a years work for a days pay!

    How bout the time when W was flying over Louisiana with the gvr there, and he had set up front-end loaders for publicity shots, and then they just lay there dormant?

    Man, what a huckster that guy was!

    made a good cheerleader in college, I hear, but just cause you have a big stupid mouth doesn't make you a good president. Heck, he was a lousy president....

    But he could do this: "We're gonna get em! We're gonna get em! Dead or Alive...yessssirreeeee"

    Wow--those were the Bad old days.

      The man had character and principles, qualities that seem to be missing in this president. No matter how you want to measure it, we were better off under Bush than we are under Obama, that's just an inescapable fact.

      Reagan was president of the Scree Actors Guild if memory serves. After being elected President with the support of the air traffic controller's union PATCO and promising them a good deal in negotiations if they supported him he didn't come through with reasonable response to their demands, and he fired them immediately when they struck (illegally).

    Unions served their purpose and now are more of a problem than a solution and need to be done away with. For companies to mee the demand for cheaper goods, they shipped US jobs over seas. Why should they pay a union employee $20 when they can get that same thing done in China for a flat average of $5 an hour without dealing with OSHA, SS, L&I, benefits, etc.

      You are right, we can't compete with a country that works children 10-12 hours a day, pollutes the air and water, and risks employee's lives because it is cheaper than than maintaining a safe work environment.
