[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Union vs Non-Union posters : What a crock! Do you have any proof that unions are the cause of jobs going overseas? Nope because there's never any proof behind right wing BS. Jobs get shipped overseas because the Chinese get paid a couple of bucks a day. You whining pinheads apparently expect people to work for wages that can't even feed their families just so you can pay less for products.

No sh#t...I saw this beaut of a post too (the one you're replying towards)...
Less Union influence, power, and numbers when looked at in simple terms of PER Person, every single year verses the last maybe 40-60 years, UN-believably greater ionization of wealth, AND power into a dwindling percentage of the populace (saw recently the figure that in 1950, your average income for a CEO in Britain was 10X, the average pay for the workers in his company... By 2000? 100X more he was being paid. In America? 1950 it was a 40-1 ratio salary... By 2000? 400-1), add this with a STILL
greatly unchecked influences of corrupt lobbyists for monopolies & oligarchies having their way in Washington, rising cost of living expenses wherein an average person born in MY generation does not and IS not per average living as easily, and making the same than those within my parents, the baby-boomers gen, WHOM in turn, are not living as well as THEIR parents, the "Greatest Gen" parent's generation was, add to this the TOTAL fraud Wall Street recently played with their nice lil' junk bond housing scam (and hey rich guys: We'll keep your wealthy tax breaks, just give us universal healthcare in some manner, alright? No? Good Deal...thanx), And so I just go BALLISTIC when I hear the unfortunate circumstances that MADE CEOs ship jobs oversees, simply because "Profits were down
" (MEANING: "We still HAD profits lol...just not as good profits as some past years...and that's what we're looking for, Those BETTER profits
You NON-Union guys wanna know why I'm outspoken for a bunch of Millionaire Sport's Players in conjunction with one another...? It ain't them, It's You. And you ALSO want to know the greatest difference between Union vs NON-Union Posters...? 90% of the Pro-Union posters were able to initially decipher that BOTH The Owners and The Players are at fault, while the NON-Union Posters KNOW the problem lies with the players union itself (a single voiced poster like PatsEng
, being the soul exception in your camp).
For me...He!!, monetarily I'm alright. I'm doing o.k.. I'm a College Grad working at a white collar big Company (for less than my HS educated father worked for at my age, in a warehouse...And both for considerably less than what my HS educated grandfather made, as he was able to afford & support his wife, 3 children, and acquire a 2nd house in order to rent for even added income). I'm ceratinly NOT against the idealist democracritic principles set forth by our nation's forefathers...But I AM anti-capitalism...Unchecked in ANY way at all, Capitalism- (not sure there were coast-coast Walmarts in Washington's time, employing clerks, shippers, growers, manufacturers, etc...until infinity. Local & regional power dons...but enormous National power-brokers cornering markets?).
I digress (as usual). Even though I'm still yearning and trully needing a greater spiritual fulfullment than that which I know a great many, many, many people are able to gleefully fulfill in the name of acquiring shiny & expensive tangible assets and compiling numbers in a bank book...I am still, plenty immersed in this materialistic world to want at least, a decent share of life's finer things (brand new top-of-the-line cars I "saw" my father able to afford with a job right out of High School...A 3 bedroom house I "saw" my grandfather easily afford when he was my age). It's all relative I suppose, generation to generation... STILL
, "Why," you ask, "Am I so Pro-NFL-Players Union?" Because to me at least, it represents a microcosm (a warped game for millionaires's one). Think my views and stance here, akin to the famous Indian Chief Sitting Bull... Sitting Bull, towards the end of his life, once went to Washington D.C. with a large collection of other Native American Chiefs, in order to discuss U.S. Government treatises for The Lakota Indians. When told by the US Government that in order to garner a larger land reservation elsewhere, and to have a greater voice of power now, Sitting Bull would initially have to show certain good faith gestures...He'd be asked to cede some of his land to The Government initially... Here's how Sitting Bull replied to the politicians: "This
," he said (grabbing a handful of dirt and letting it flow out his fingers). "I won't give you this much land to take away any longer
...". THIS is the reason of my militancy.
